the most beautiful animal? well, i don’t really
have one, but here’s two: a gazelle and a lioness.
that’s funny because a lioness, well a lioness, i
wonder if the most beautiful thing in the world
might be a lioness who has just killed a gazelle
and is walking with a dead gazelle in its mouth and
i wonder if that is the most beautiful thing. no.
no. just lions and gazelles, no eating… but lions
like to eat gazelles, so there’re two beautiful
things, and one eats the other. are they still
beautiful? well, one of them isn’t beautiful
because it’s all bloody, and one of them is, the
other one still is beautiful. if something is all
bloody, is it no longer beautiful? if something is
bloody, is it still beautiful? no. i mean, is blood
not beautiful? there’s a bloody something, it’s all
bloody. could it still be beautiful? if there’s a
beautiful gazelle with a little bit of blood on it
like there from where a lion tried to get it, would
it still be beautiful? a little bit of blood, yes.
yes, a little bit of blood. it will still be
beautiful, but a lot of blood all over something
isn’t, isn’t beautiful. it’s hurt. if a beautiful
thing is hurt does that make it ugly? or not
beautiful? or just not as beautiful? full beauty.
