PROFESSOR ZAZUL:

REALISED ACCORDING TO

STANISAW LEM'S SHORT STORY

- Hallo.

Hallo!

Is anyone here?

Hallo!

- Must you make so much noise?

- I am sorry.

But you know... Storm, rain.

My name is Tichy.

- I know, I know. Storm, rain, wind.

This is the only shelter for you.

- Indeed. Perhaps here, in the lobby,

I can wait through the worst?

- Yes.

- I will leave soon.

It only has to calm down.

- Tichy, there is no other option.

The only place where

you can sit is in the laboratory.

You must see it all.

Come on, go inside!

Sit wherever you like.

And don't talk too much.

Have a try.

Don't be afraid.

Be calm Tobiasz, calm.

Hush, hush.

We have a visitor.

- You are Professor Zazul!

- Are you certain?

- It would be hard not to recognise

such a prominent scholar.

Moreover...

What is this... ?

- My only friend in this isolated place.

Tobiasz.

- Zazul! What is this?!

- I've told you...

Tobiasz.

Of that I assure you.

Sit down and don't disturb me!

I don't see a reason

why I should tell you anything.

- If you won't explain yourself,

I would have to take steps,

which will cause a lot of trouble...

- Mr. Tichy, how does it look?

There is a storm, it rains,

you bang at my door.

You enter uninvited, and now

I have the honour of hearing threats!

I am a scientist, sir,

not a bandit!

- This is a man...

- By all means.

Tobiasz! Come here, come.

Come here, my little one.

- You killed him!

- In any case I put him in there.

Do you think that one can live

in a 96% concentration of

formalin and spirit?

That there is still a hope?

Of course you know

about the twins, don't you?

- Yes. But what that has to do...

- Perfect.

An impregnated ovum,

in the case of twins,

divides into two halves

from which two neonates are created.

Two organisms, perfect reflections.

If we have an adult, alive,

it is possible, with the

precise examination of his organism,

to create the second half of the ovum,

from which he was once born.

One can, given enough time,

create from this man his twin.

- But this embyro you create,

it would immediately die!

- Perhaps others. Not mine.

You are the first man,

who shall see it.

My biggest secret.

- But those are devices

which can be found

in any university workshop.

- Yes, indeed.

But the whole secret, is this trinket.

A regulator of radiation.

Anyway...

Take a look for yourself. Please.

I put the embryo into an artificial

nourishment solution.

When inside the incubator,

under the effect of radiation,

I trigger its metamorphosis

into the foetus

at a rate that is ten times

faster than normal.

- Fantastic!

- Thirty years of research.

Under the influence

of subsequent procedures,

this second organism, after a year,

is ten biological years old.

And after four years

he is already a forty year old man.

And so...

That is exactly what I have done!

- So you state...

If your story is even true...

That creating this man

also gave you the right to destroy him?!

- But that is not everything!!

I have prepared far more

interesting experiments.

That is why you are here.

- He did kill him.

Why?

Was he a half-wit?

Retarded!

- Do not insult me!

There was full mental development.

It is something more

than creating a twin.

It is a copy,

but one more perfect than the original.

Professor Zazul surpassed nature.

Surpassed! Do you understand?

An artificially created man,

even the creation of

Professor Zazul, is mortal.

His survival was at stake,

he needed to survive as a monument.
