Daniel Luten – Bridge Builder – Sanity Test: Faucet or the Mop

“…an organization cannot have a conservation policy without having a population policy….the sanity test — in which the candidate, confronted with an overflowing sink, is classified according to whether he reaches for the faucet or the mop.” — Daniel B. Luten; as quoted by William Milton Cooper in Behold a Pale Horse.

Instinct:
Instinct is a 1999 American psychological thriller film starring Anthony Hopkins, Cuba Gooding, Jr., George Dzundza, Donald Sutherland, and Maura Tierney. It was very loosely inspired by Ishmael, a novel by Daniel Quinn. The film examines the mind of anthropologist Ethan Powell (Hopkins) who had been missing for a few years, living in the jungle with gorillas. He is convicted of killing and injuring several supposed Wilderness Park Rangers in Africa, and is sent to prison. A bright young psychiatrist (Gooding) tries to find out why he killed them, but becomes entangled in a quest to learn the true history and nature of humankind. Eventually it is revealed that during the course of Powell’s stay with the gorillas, they accepted him as part of their group; he was attempting to protect his gorilla family when the rangers arrived and started shooting them. He gets a hearing to reveal the truth, but an attack by a vicious guard on the other prisoners causes Powell to be reminded of the killed gorillas and stop talking again. At the end of the film, Powell escapes from prison using a pen to dig out the lock on a window, and heads back to Africa. Trailer. Clip: IllusionsThe Game.

I’ve been thinking about it a lot. it’s not the work. l love the work. I’ve always loved the work. it’s the game. The game, Ethan. And l was so good at it. l made sure all the right people liked me. At night, I’d do the checklist in my mind. Am l cool with Ben Hillard ? Am l cool with Dr Josephson ? Am l cool with all the people who can help me ? Am l cool with all the people who can hurt me ? Nobody thought l was weak or a loser. There was nobody l was offending, nobody l loved. That game, Ethan. But guess what ? You taught me how to live outside of the game.

..

Dr Theo Caulder, continuing interview with Dr Ethan Powell. I’ve further reduced your Haldol. Have you felt the effects of that ?
Yeah. Thank you.
ln our last session, we discovered why you left your normal routine of study… and began to travel with the gorillas, staying with them even at night.
– Our next subject to cover is the reason for–
– Hey, look. – it fell off the chair.
– Mm. Great.
Our next subject to cover is the reason for–
– Are these for me ?
– Yes.
– Oh.
– The reason for the attack on the rangers–
– No pencils ?
– These are safer.
Oh, yeah.
Okay.
No pencils.
– Are you coming back to the gym today, TabibuJuha ?
– Yes.
Am l worth it ?
All the mess and blood ?
I’m here to do an evaluation. That’s what l do.
Am l so interesting ?
You lived as an animal for nearly two years. I’d say you were interesting enough, sure.
l lived as a man living with animals. l lived as humans lived years ago. Humans knew how to live in the world then, before–
Before civilization ?
No, before you, Juha, and all your kind.
Takers.
Yeah. Yeah.
Yeah, l was one of you.
l believed in control.
– Some control is necessary.
– ls it ?
[ Sighs ]
The gorillas, they let you stay with them, even at night. You were becoming one of them.
– [Pounds Table]
– Are you listening ?
Are you listening to me ?
Yes.
Not one of them. Not a gorilla. Don’t you see ? They accepted a man. They reached across. They took me in as family. They welcomed a human being among them. That’s the miracle.
What about the family you left behind ? What about Lyn ?
We leave her outside of this.
– Why ?
– And my wife. Leave them out.
You think l don’t know. l know what l was, what l lost, what l killed.
– She’s not dead. She wants to see you.
– She saw me at the airport. She saw what l am now. You let me be dead to her. You change the subject, Juha, or walk away from this.
Which do you want ? For now, l want the forest. Take me there.
ln the forest for all that time. Did you ever miss the contact with any humans ?
No. They were there. l may not have seen them, but l always knew they were there.
[ Flies Buzzing ]
[ Grunts ]
[Theo] lf you were learning their ease– Their peace. Their peace. Then why does this all end in murder ?
There were many murders.
– Many ?
– Yeah.
There’s a zoo not far from here where l studied– and many years ago– and, uh… they needed a male gorilla, a wild capture. And l did that. l helped capture him. l didn’t even know what murder was when l was you, Juha. You know what murder I’m talking about. lf you don’t talk to me about this, l can’t help you.
– l don’t want you to help me.
– What do you want ?
l want you to listen.
– And then what ?
– Share it.
– With ?
– Whoever you share with, the people you’re close to.
Are there any ?
Why don’t you tell others ?
‘Cause I’m not for this world, not any more.
What world, then ? in your memories, locked away in your mind for the rest of your life ?
– Is that all you want ?
– No, l want to finish this.
– Finish what ?
– Telling you what l know.
What makes you think what you know is any different than what other people know ?
l had different teachers.
[ Chuckles ]
Okay, okay.
So I’m supposed to… pass on your work.
Yeah, for all it’s worth.
– What made you pick me ?
– A look in your eye.
– You seemed to have half a brain.
– Thank you. What look ?
That look– curious, searching, unsatisfied, slightly pissed off.
Why didn’t you pick your daughter ?
Leave it alone.
– Why do you refuse to talk about her ?
– Leave it.
She wants to see you.
l say we talk about it.
Hmm.
[Pen Clatters Onto Table]
l was wrong about you, Juha.
– Explain that.
– Tell them to open this door.
You’re not the one, Juha.
– I’m not the one ?
– No.
I’m not the one who cut your medication ? I’m not the one to say if you’re competent for a hearing, a chance of getting outta here ?
– I’m the one, Ethan.
– Are you ?
I’m the one.
– The one in control, huh ?
– Yes.
– Who’s in control ?
– [ Choking ]
[ Yelling ]
So who is in control, huh ?
Are you ?
Am l ?
The guards outside ?
The warden in his office ?
Yeah ?
Who’s in control ?
Testing, testing, testing.
One, two, three, four.
Dr Ethan Powell, interviewing Dr Theo Caulder.
Now, this will be a very simple test. Pass or fail, life or death. Ready, Juha ? Now, you write on this paper what l have taken from you. What have you lost ? Write it ! Write it !
[Writes] Control
Wrong. You never had control. You only thought you had it. An illusion, TabibuJuha ! And what do you control for sure, huh ? The volume on your stereo, the air conditioning in your car ? What else ? What else ? All right. Another chance. You were nervous. Too much pressure. Try again. What have you lost ? What did l take ? Write it. Write it !
[Writes] Freedom
You’re a fool, Juha. – Ha ! – [ Grunts, Pants ] Did you think you were free ? Where were you going at : today ? into the gym, right ? in the morning, your wake-up call. in the middle of the night when you wake up sweating, with your heart pounding. What is it that has you all tied up, Juha, tied up in little knots ? Is it ambition ? Yeah. You’re no mystery to me, boy. l used to be you. Okay. One last chance. You think l won’t do it ? [ Chuckles ] What’s one psychiatrist less to the world ? I’m already deep in the pit. So what can they do to me ? Last try. Get it right. What have you lost ? What did l take from you ? Write it.
[Writes] Illusions.
Yeah. Congratulations. You’re a student, after all. And you’ve lost nothing but your illusions… and a little bit of skin.

[..]

What’s the playing card for ?
Control.
Control of you ?
By whom ?
– By you– takers.
– ”Takers” ? Explain that.
l wanna go to my cell now.
The session’s not over.
Until you say so ?
Right.
The taker.
[ Sighs ]
You’re free to go.
Am l ?
And you ?
Are you free ?
[inmates Chattering, Laughing]
Only in my head.
You ! You !
l know about the ace of diamonds. Every prisoner is supposed to spend a half an hour outside. Every prisoner, every day.
We can only afford the time and personnel to do a rotation– one patient a day– so we make it random, use the cards.
– it doesn’t work.
– it keeps them focused on something.
– [Loud Shriek]
– The strong take it from the weak every time.
And the rest of them focus their anger on the ones who take it… and not on the guards or medical staff.
– it does work.
– For us. it works for us.

[..]

You asked me a question once.
”What has you all tied up in knots… when you wake up sweating in the middle of the night ?”
You still wanna know ? I’ve been thinking about it. I’ve been thinking about it a lot. it’s not the work. l love the work. I’ve always loved the work. it’s the game. The game, Ethan. And l was so good at it. l made sure all the right people liked me. At night, I’d do the checklist in my mind. Am l cool with Ben Hillard ? Am l cool with Dr Josephson ? Am l cool with all the people who can help me ? Am l cool with all the people who can hurt me ? Nobody thought l was weak or a loser. There was nobody l was offending, nobody l loved. That game, Ethan. But guess what ? You taught me how to live outside of the game. [Crying Softly] You taught me how to live. And you know what scares me even more ?

”Forgive me, Ben. Put me back in the game. ”I’ll make you like me again ! I’ll do the work. I’ll do all the work, just put me back in the game !” And do you wanna know– You wanna know the psychology behind this ? Now, pay attention, because I’m good at this. I’m trying not to say goodbye to you. I’m trying not to say I’ll miss you. I’m trying to forget you. [ Sniffling ] Ethan Powell, case closed.
