A Torinói ló
The Turin horseDVD - 2011 | Hungarian
On January 3, 1889 in Turin, Italy, Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of the doorway of number six, Via Carlo Albert. Not far from him, a cab driver is having trouble with a stubborn horse. The horse refuses to move, whereupon the driver loses his patience and takes his whip to it. Nietzsche puts an end to the brutal scene, throwing his arms around the horse's neck, sobbing. Afterwards, he lies motionless and silent for two days on a divan, until he loses consciousness and his mind.

The woodworms, they're not doing it. I've heard them for 58 years. But I don't hear them now.
-They really have stopped. What's it all about, papa?
I don't know.
At times a tile can be heard crashing down from the roof and shattering noisily. The gale roars relentlessly around the house.
The storm continues to rage outside, the wind still sweeps relentlessly across the land from the same direction, but now there is nothing in its path to obstruct it. Only a great cloud of dust whipped up by the wind rushes recklessly forward, bone-dry dust and the ravaging nothing that the wind rolls before it as it rages unbridled over the barren land.
Passage from a Bible:
Since in holy places only those things are allowed, the practice of which serves the veneration of the Lord, and everything is forbidden that is not fitted for the holiness of the place, and since holy places have been violated by the great injustice of actions that have taken place within them that scandalize the congregation, for this very same reason no service unto the Lord can be held there until, through a ceremony of penitence, these aforementioned injustices have been put to rights. The bishop says to the congregation, "The Lord was with you! "Morning will become night, "night will be at an end..."
The ramble p1 of 5:
Why would it go to ruin? Because everything's in ruins, everything's been degraded, but I could say that they've ruined and degraded everything. Because this is not some kind of cataclysm, coming about with so-called innocent human aid. On the contrary... It's about man's own judgment, his own judgment over his own self, which of course God has a big hand in, or, dare I say, takes part in. And whatever he takes part in is the most ghastly creation that you can imagine. Because, you see, the world has been debased.
The ramble P2 of 5:
So it doesn't matter what I say, because everything has been debased that they've acquired, and, since they've acquired everything in a sneaky, underhanded fight, they've debased everything. Because whatever they touch, and they touch everything, they've debased. This is the way it was until the final victory. Until the triumphant end. Acquire, debase, debase, acquire. Or I can put it differently if you'd like, to touch, debase and thereby acquire, or touch, acquire and thereby debase. It's been going on like this for centuries. On, on and on. This and only this, sometimes on the sly, sometimes rudely, sometimes gently, sometimes brutally, but it has been going on and on. Yet only in one way, like a rat attacks from ambush.
The ramble P3 of 5:
Because for this perfect victory, it was also essential that the other side, that is, everything that's excellent, great in some way and noble, should not engage in any kind of fight. There shouldn't be any kind of struggle, just the sudden disappearance of one side, meaning the disappearance of the excellent, the great, the noble. So that by now the winners who have won by attacking from ambush rule the earth, and there isn't a single tiny nook where one can hide something from them, because everything they can lay their hands on is theirs. Even things we think they can't reach, but they do reach, are also theirs. The heavens are already theirs, and theirs are all our dreams.
The ramble P4 of 5:
Theirs is the moment, nature, infinite silence. Even immortality is theirs, you understand? Everything, everything is lost forever! And those many nobles, great and excellent just stood there, if I can put it that way. They stopped at this point, and had to understand, and had to accept that there is neither God nor gods. And the excellent, the great and the noble had to understand and accept this right from the beginning. But, of course, they were quite incapable of understanding it. They believed it and accepted it but they didn't understand it. They just stood there, bewildered, but not resigned, until something, that flash on the mind, finally enlightened them. And all at once they realized that there is neither God nor gods.
The ramble P5 of 5:
All at once they saw that there is neither good nor bad. Then they saw and understood that, if this was so, then they themselves did not exist either! You see, I reckon this may have been the moment when we can say that they were extinguished, they burnt out. Extinguished and burnt out like the fire left to smolder in the meadow. One was the constant loser, the other was the constant victor. Defeat, victory, defeat, victory. And one day, here in the neighborhood, I had to realize, and I did realize, that I was mistaken, I was truly mistaken when I thought that there had never been and could never be any kind of change here on earth. Because, believe me, I know now that this change has indeed taken place.
