A Muslim  guy  discovers his ancestors were the Jewish Rabbi Luria and the Catholic Prince Rákóczi. He meets an Israeli Commando Officer, who – legend says - stems from King David.

 

 

 

First Part

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scene: a College Dormitory Kitchen

Participants:

Shema  Spitzer is a music teacher, Ferko is a Roma social worker student, Lisa is Mrs. Szerb, a teacher

 

Shema:

It is impossible that Geo does not come home…He even wrote a letter saying he will not return. But we wanted to begin to learn ancient wisdoms, like Kabbalah with him today.

 

 

Ferquo: 

 

–  Yes. And he signed it as usual, as „Cosmos”. He used this as a  pen name. But his real name, he rarely used, it is Srb. S.R.B comes from „soreb”  and - it means resistance in Hebrew. Or rebellion. He does not use it, because it was the name of his grandmother’s husband, who was a famous writer.  Lisa, you must be worrying. Or are you used to such weird things in this Serb family?

 

 

Liza:

 

–  Oh, well…Since my husband, Geo’s father is said to have committed suicide, I can imagine anything. His best friend, Dixie Gemesh also died soon. I tried my best to deny him access to the family traditions and he never met the Gemesh cousins.

 

Ferko:

 

There is some legend about some family  curse, isn’t it?

 

Shema:

 

I cannot believe that he just leaves us. Where is the lemon?

 

 

Liza:

 

Yes, the family legend claims that there used to be assassinations around some famuily members and always from some messianist cause. Are you in love with him now?

 

Shema:

 

A mother should not ask such questions. I do not think so, no. I am worried that they are always together with Ferquo.

 

         Liza:

 

       – Exactly, Jancsi, my husband was always together with Dixie. They drank so much, that the police had to be called many times. That is why the children were put in to an Orphanage. Or Educational Institute. What is that package  over there?

 

 

Ferquo:

I do not know. There are these neighbouring Arabs and one of them gave it to me , so that I should give it to Geo. You know, Geo nowadays goes regularly to the karate Club of the Muslim Community. I also would have loved to go away with him. Maybe he is already in the desert.

 

Shema:

 

Liza, you let him dream about the desert?  

 

Liza:

 

– Sure. I cannot influence him. I do not believe in love anyway. We still can have fun together.

 

 

The bell rings.

 

Robbie Chak a balding sergeant and Panna Kris, a red-haired colonel of the Police Headquarters arrive in plain clothes.

 

Robbie:

 

– Hi.

 

Panna:

 

– Hi.

 

 

 

 

Liza : 

 

– Hi, Robbie…Panna…Have the courses started at the Police Academy?

 


Robbie:

 

– Yes. Pity you did not want to start to study there with us.  

 

Liza:

 

 – Well. After forty it is difficult to change direction.  

 

Robbie:

 

– You are right. I want to ask you about Geo. The Israeli colleagues who accompany the Israeli President found out about a plot of assassination against the Israeli President that originated at the Muslim Karate Club. So they found the name of Geo Cosmos. And the very same they we got the information that your mother-in-law, Claire Balint has died in the Old Peoples’ Home.  What do you think  about it?

 

Liza:

 

– Ferquo and  Geó went over to visit Granma a lot of times. And they went to the Muslims to do a karate course  just because it is close by. Already his father preached that all religions are equivalent and you may go to any one. He also said that there were Turkish ancestors in the family. So they did not go there for terrorist sympathies.

 

 

A man enters, Bandi Szőke, the filmmaker.

 

 

 Bandi : 

 

Hi. Hello!

 

Liza : 

 

– Bandi ! Szőke-Bandi !

 

         Bandi:

 

– Hi! The others?

 

Lisa:

 

– They will come back from the kitchen soon. Why do you start drinking beer in the morning? Or you brought it for the evening match?

 

Bandi:

 

– Sure.

 

Liza:

 

– I wonder if you can persuade Shema to watch TV like all the rest of your girlfriends.

 

Bandi:

 

– How do you mean Shema is an ex-girlfriend?  I just helped her to get a flat to live in.


Shema is just coming back.

 

Bandi: 

– What is the problem? Why are you crying, Shema? 

 

Ferquo:

 

– Geo has decided to leave us, he went to Vienna. He left a farewell letter. Maybe he will enter the Foreign Legion.

 

Liza : 

 

– Stop Feró. Robbie is here from the Police and they claim there is some big problem with your Muslim friends. They have plans for  some killing.

 

 

 Robbie : 

 

– Of course it might be just a coincidence. To go to the Legion on the very day of his being looked for by the Police…After the death of his Grandmother…And that all her Notes have disappeared.

 

Bandi:

 

– Oh. The Notes of Antal Szerb’s widow! The famous writer has had some compulsivity problems according to those notes they say. I wanted to make a movie on him.   

 

 

Panna:

 

– There are some stolen Crown Jewels mentioned in it. Maybe Geo just wants to search for these diamants and that is why he left us.  There is an Israeli Officer among the Security people, who says his name is some... David something and he is related to the Szerbs…and is a descendant of the prague Rabbi Löw and also of King David…

 

 

Liza:

 

–  Oh, my god…Maybe he stems from the family Gemesh…They also claim to be of a davidic descendant family, yes. Always rivalizing with us.

Panna:

 

–  No, his name is Geshem.  

 

 

Liza:

 

– I made a big mistake. I was involved in  the family matters when I decided that the children of Dixie Gemesh should stay in the Orphanage and then be sent to Israel. I just have heard that Jancsi was researching the family legends and that in every generation some people had same-gender fantasy leanings and some of them were Princes and they were killed for these emotional impbalance. I did not want the next generation to continue this pattern.

 

They all watch the TV now, on the screen we see a Football Stadium.

 

We do hear the commentator:

 

– Dear Spectators, there is a naked man just being arrested on the field. 

 

Panna /not looking up/:

 

– Some say the Notes contain information about a mysterious repetitive pattern of assassinations. Each 44-45 years. There is a Prince killed.  And some claim the Princes are involved in homoerotic fantasy relationships due to a special kabbalist school. They learn it because of their davidic ancestors. And the killer stems always from the Baltazzi family. First it was Crown Prince Rudolf in 1889 and after 45 years it was the friend of Proust, the Serb Tzar. In 1934. The last victim was Lord Mountbatten, the Uncle of the English Queen. In 1979.  Geo’s Father, Jancsi Szerb has left some notes too, he got them from his friend, Dixie Gemesh.

 

         Robbie:

 

– There is mention of a family diamant that the assassins have hidden somewhere.

 

Panna:

 

– There are Baltazzi descendants in many parts of Europe. In Vienna, in Marseilles, in Dublin, in Zagreb. They are descendants of the Paleologos family who is a davidic branch. According to legend, the messianic Rank descends only on the father’s side. Maybe Geo found out something about Dixie’s father.

 

 

 

Bandi : 

 

– We certainly do not know if Geo really went and joined the Legion. We do know that he started to use the name Cosmos when he first read the Manuscripts of Dixie. Dixie used to call everybody „Geocosmos”.

 

Panna:

 

– Why?

 

Bandi:

 

– Because he claimed that the World Being is just one huge human being and so it should be called Adam Kadmon, or in Greek, Geocosmos. Anyway, in kabbalah the teachers and the students share one name. Like the Baal Shem Tov’s teacher was also called Baal Shem Tov.  Or like the followers of the Jesus Christ also called each other Jesus or Christos. And Dixie got this name Cosmos from Bela Tábor, a friend of Anthony Szerb, the writer. He was the first to teach the Kabbalah in Budapest before the war.

 

 

Panna:

 

– And who is this Arab, who left here this package? We do know that he is half Arab, half Berber. And he is afraid that some traditions claim that the Mashiah or Mahdi will come from a mixed heritage family. I think he knows that we learn Kabbalah and messianism and hopes to hide himself among us.

 

 

Liza: 

 

– But this is my son, Geo on the screen…The guy who is arrested is Geo! I did not see it without my spectacles before.

 

Shema:

 

– Oh my God! I am glad he is arrested. So that he cannot go to the Legion.

 

 

  

Robbie: 

 

– But why should he flee from here? And why is it in his interest to strip naked and run to a football stadium?

 

Ferquo:

 

– Once, when there was no central heating he asked me to let him lie next to me in my bed. Maybe he feels some shame.

 

Liza:

 

– Oh, no…This is why I wanted him to be separated from his cousin in the Orphanage. Because it is a curse in the family. Jancsi and Dixie were too close due to the shared interest in religion. Always learning together. And drinking in the evening. And the same happened to grandfather Anthony Szerb. And his wife, Claire Balint has an Aunt, Beate Spitzer who was Lesbian...And they all had hints in their Diaries about why Kabbalah is meant to deal with homoromantic relationships. Why these taboo embraces of the celestial beings actually are the most important for life on Earth.

So now I am afraid he went  on TV naked to be seen by all. Because he knows that there are Israeli Security officers looking around in Budapest, Vienna and Zagreb, where they accompany the Isareli President. And he probably hopes that somehow the Israeli detective or agent will find him. And he wants to find his lost cousin, David.

 

 Shema:

 

– Oh, yes, I understand you. No mother really wants  a gay son. But to deny him a friendship with his cousin…

 

Liza:

 

– You see this cousin stems from a mixed heritage family. And there are the other legends, where two messianic pretenders get involved in learning and one of them gets killed. So it is not just that I am afraid he would turn out to be  gay.

 

 

 

                  

 

Panna:

 

But he also went to this Buddhist sect before. Where they never eat bread.  And he used to say that Jesus himself never ate bread, he raised the bread and said it is „my body” to hint at the fact that we humans do not eat human bodies so we should skip bread…

Shema:

 

         – Yes, but it was not a Buddhist sect. It was a Kabbalist sect.  

 

Liza :

 

I think it was a mistake not to tell him about his father. Claire also preached against wheat. She learnt it from an Aunt Beate, who knew personally Sissy, the Empress. She was allergic to wheat and milk. And she learned Kabbalah. She knew the secret name of God. (That Yahweh means Future. Future-Maker). But her son, Jancsi did not keep this diet. They went through the night with Dixi and they drank and smoked pot and did not have any fear from no one. They did not know that there are opioids in the wheat.  Now I think it was a mistake not to tell about it to Geo.  

 

Panna:

 

– I found some manuscripts in the Headquarters Archives. Maybe parts of these lost Notes. Those that were copied by Dixi Gemesh.  It was taken from him forcibly.

In 1889 it mentions the death of Crown Prince Rudolf. In 1934 the killing of the Serb Tzar, the friend of Proust. And the writer Anthony Szerb, Geo’s relative was present there in Marseilles.

 

Of course in Kabbalah the Death of the Kings means the death of the Ego.

 And yes, all three victims were objects of gossip, that they had intensive love affairs with servants, mostly that was the topic. But it was probably not true as we do know about their children and  many women in their lives.

 

Bandi :

 

– Between  89 and  34 we have four decades.  45 years. And between 1934 and 1979 /the third assassination, the one of Lord Mountbatten/ also. Which means the next one in this messianist assassination series comes in 2024.

 

So this plan against the Israeli President in 2004 should not succeed. Should be thwarted.

 

 

Robbie:

 

 

These are Kabbalist numbers.  The sums of the name of God. These letters (YHWH) cerate everything. It depends on how we can censor our ego. So I think it is simple: the Hasid sects believe in the Mashiah popping up in every generation. And the royal houses also claim descent from King David. So they clash with each other.  That is why we have these regular clashes and the perpetrator always comes from this family Baltazzi Xantopoulos…And Geo may have some relatives from this partly Muslim family. So if he heard about the mixed heritage legend around the messiah, he might have some fears.

 

 

Bandi :

 

–   Of course…the Xantos family…But my present name, Szőke stems from Xantos…So maybe I am also a relative. What if we made a movie of  all this. If  Geo  returns he could play the Princes. Shema, you could be playing  Aunt Beate Spitzer as she is your ancestor. And Liza, you could play Granma Claire. And of course we have an Indian Hindu role, this can be played by Ferquo.  And me, of course I have to assume the role of this Baltazzi, the killer. I remember, Aunt Claire has tried to persuade his son Jancsi, to make this movie and they did plan it with a friend, called Body, and Dixi would have played in it.

 

 

/They begin to read the manuscript of Dixi given to them by Panna./

2.

 

intermezzo

 

 

 

 

         /After reading the descriptoion of the assassinations./

        

Panna:

 

– It might be dangerous…

 

Ferquo:

 

– How? Geo writes a farewell letter that he enters the Legion. Then we see him naked on a football stadium’s grass. And then we find this manuscript detailing some assassinations and love affairs in the past around the family, copied by this avangarde artist, called Dixie. I do not see the danger.

 

 

 

Liza :

 

– Well, what can  I say to his wife and to his children?

 

 Panna:

 

– We must find the rest of the manuscripts.  

 

Lisa:

 

– Even his father has had a Kabbalist group. They have been learning, Jancsi and Dixi from a man called Bela Tabor. He gave them lectures on the teachings of a Rabbi called Ashlag. About the balance between Giving and Receiving. The original teachings stem from the Matser of the Good Name, the Baal Shem Tov. And he learned from a disciple of the Prague Maharal, the Rabbi Löw, a cousin of the Rabbi Luria, Who created the best interpretation on the collection of ancient writings, the so called Zohar.

 

So Dixi thought that he himself might be the Real Davidic Sprout. So they were rivalizing with Jancsi.  They called each other During Cosmos or sometning like that. The Kabbalists say that Adam Kadmon is a geo-cosmic soul. Adam meaning earth, as in Greek it means Geos. They called Jesus in a different way. Jazz-Up. Because they said his original name was meaningful. Something to „jazz up” people. But I am worrying now for my son. What if among the Izraeli Commando we have here in our city the son of Dixie now?

 

Shema:

 

Oh, I remember when I was young, I did know Dixie. And Jancsi Szerb too. And Peter Halasz and Pisti Balint. I always kind of idolized one of them. And yes, I happen to have Spitzer ancestors. It is strange.

 

Ferquo :

 

I was born in America. I heard from Geo that Beate Spitzer adopted a Hindu servant…and they had a child together. And he was my ancestor.  And Geo told me about the friendship between his father Jancsi Szerb and this enigmatic figure Dixie.

 

Who has met Bela Tabor. And that is how Cosmos was called like his father.

 

Bandi :

 

Okay, it seems that Geo left these things for us to decipher…maybe that is why he disappeared. So that we should become curious about our ancestors. I understand that Aunt Claire has presured Dixie and his wife to give their children in to this Orphanage and later sent them to Israel. But they might have changed their name.

 

  

Liza:

I am angry at Dixie. He sent his family to Israel! And now my son is learning karate with Muslims and maybe this Israeli Officer cousin is already looking after him. And they both want to try the lost diamants of the Baltazzis.

 

         Panna:

 

So everyone has a motive in his or her life that connects him or her to the topic of the Diaries of Aunt Beate and Claire which was copied by Dixie and then taken by the Police. Bandi has Muslim ancestors. Ferquo has Hindu ancestors. Shema has Jewish ancestors. Geo has Transsylvanian ancestors who claim some davidic descent through the Byzantine Emperors, the Palailogi.  And the Gemesh children are relatives of a prague Rabbi, who stems from King David…But  he disappeared.

 

 Bandi :

 

– So it turns out that Hungarian noblemen have davidic Jewish ancestors?  

 

Ferquo:

 

– And even me, in spite of having Hindi ancestors, I also belong tho this Hungarian gentry and may have Muslim ancestors too?

 

  Robbie:

 

– Yes. I have found more from Dixie’s manuscript in another part of the Police Archives. Here we have a scene in which Minister Kozma and Prime Minister Gömbös meet the populist writers, like Németh, Illyés, Móricz and Márai and they try to persuade them to enter the governing party in the Parliament. They refuse though. But they are talking about gossips about other writers, like Cécile Tormay and Emma Ryttoch having Lesbian affairs.

 

Dixie wonders about the importance of gender roles in ancient wisdom lore. And he is also finding it curious that some people are allergic to wheat and its opiate content. Especialy interesting that these wheat opiates are having an effect on the testosterone creation in the body. Hence wheat has an effect on our manly and womanly behaviour patterns.

 

 

Shema :

 

Even If all this is true, it is too much for me to understand why Geo went to the Muslims and why he went to this football strip show…Except if he knew that through the Muslims the Israeli Commando might find him…And maybe he really only tries to find his lost cousin, this Ben Dixie.

 

 

Liza :

 

– Yes. It was a mistake to keep all these secrets. I should have at least tell it to Geo after the demise of his father Jancsi and also after the death of Dixie.

 

Shema:

 

– Still I think it is not clear why he has to create such an unpleasant situation for his wife and his children..and for all of his friends. Maybe he found the Diaries… And maybe he thinks that he is part of this Geocosmic Being..and he must find the positive side, the Adam Kadmon side.

 

 Liza:

 

– He has left me too. I am his mother…

 

Panna:

 

– But he has a message. Which may help to many people. In order to reach the audience he must do some extravagant gestures.

 

 Bandi:

 

– But these messages are known without him. The Taoist sex is a famous method to secure orgasm for men without ejaculation. Because the killing of the sperm make some people nervous.

 

Ferquo:

 

– And also it is known that non-erotic manly touch is the main ingredient of manly self-respect.

 

Panna:

 

– To me it seems as if all of you had a little crush on this Geo.

 

 

Ferquo:

 

– But how could we help him? What if journalists come and ask about him after the Vienna Football Stadium event?

 

Bandi:

 

– We should explain to them, that there used to be a Kabbalah School in Budapest before the war. That had stressed the good effect of the strange couplings described in Kabbalah. Where every Letter Number is a Body Part. And the Non-Egoist Eye part lifts the Egoistically inclined Hindpart.

And in all these assassinations there was a friendly Kabbalist study pair who were trying to diminish their egos…And so they fell in love with each other…And their girlfriends definitely got mad at them and organized the killings using political opponents.  And also using the messianic folklore.

 

 

Ferquo:

 

– But these dynastic fights were just a cover for the messianic legends. But Dixie wanted to tell everyone the ancient wisdom: that anyone can become the Jazz-up Cry-Stop…Anyone who  discovers inside the Hebrew Body Part joinings.

 

Buddha, Krshna and Mohammed all refer to this commmon characteristic: the Beloved Son. So you must not be born Jewish to discover this Son in yourself.

 

 

Liza:

 

– Exactly. That is why I wanted Dixie out of the life of Jancsi. Because Jancsi was a real Davidic Sprout. And if people learn from Dixie that anyone can become a Ben David…well, then the whole edifice of Judaism crumbles. Not to mention the other religions that are just following  the legends of Judaism.  I am quite worried now about this Israeli Officer called Geshem. It is too much similar of the original Gemesh name.   

 

 

 

Ferquo:

 

– The problem with those born as Mashiah is that then he is to become a Star and he is „better than others”. But  if anyone can become part of the Messhianic Soul, the Geokozmos, whoever filters his desires, well, then of course  this problem disappears.

 

Bandi:

 

–  And if we all use the name Cosmos for each other…kind of expressing that we are part of the Cosmos…well, is that not a kind of idolizing?

 

Robbie:

 

– All human excess is caused by the extra opiaoids hat is in the wheat. It is called gliadorphin. So if we begin to work on  the message of this forgotten artist, Dixie…

 

Panna:

 

– We should not enter into these details.

 

 

Ferquo:

 

– Why not? By the way you could not help Geo who is now in custody in Vienna?  

 

Robbie:

 

– Now it is not in my power. The rules are rules.  

Let us continue to read these Diaries.

 

Bandi:

 

– Yes. I will read the texts of the Baltazzis, Shema reads the Spitzer texts and so on…Maybe Geo’s part should be read by Liza. Of course it would be great if we found the Dixie’s lost orphans in Israel. They could play the roles of the Kings.

 

3.

 

 

 

 

Police Headquarters.

 

Robbie speaks with Ferquo.

 

Robbie:

 

– So let us look at it again. Your teacher’s Granma, Aunt Claire Balint dies and her Diaries (or the copies made by nephew Dixie) disappear. The question is: how much did Geo read of the Diaries?

 

Ferquo:

 

 – Okay…I know that Shema Spitzer from the Addictology. Because she is not only a Jazz singer she is an addictologist too. And she used to know Dixie from the Artist Club in the Eighties…They even started to make a movie together with Bandi Szőke-Xantos and Dixie.

 

In another room we see Shema and Panna.

 

Shema:

 

– Yes, Ferquo was in an Institute of rehabilitation. No one believed that he is Hindi. We thought it is just a heroinist daydream. And so we advised him to go to a Twelve Step Abstinence Group. I introduced him to Geo Cosmos.  And yes, I accepted the idea, that they will go to the nearby Karate Club. I did not know it was connected to the Muslims.

 

Panna:

 

– When you were young, you did live in the home of Jancsi Szerb, the father of Geo.

 

 

 

Shema:

 

– Yes. By chance. We did not know then  that we are relatives.

 

Ferko:

 

Aunt Claire has told Shema, when she lived in Jancsi’s flat, that my grandfather was living in Delhi after the assassination  against Prince Rudolph, where he was present as Baltazzi’s servant. And he also was present as a pilot in the Marseilles assassination.

 

 And later in the Seventies, Jancsi went to India with a cultural delegation where my Granpa was a servant of Lord Mountbatten the Governor, who was also killed in 1979 in Dublin. Then Jancsi was present because he worked in a movie for a Hungarian Director  called Jancsó.

 

 

Shema:

 

– Okay, we had to emit Ferquo from the Rehab, because all my colleages thought he is lying a lot. About not being Roma but Hindu for instance.  So no one paid attention that he went to a Muslim Karate Club. I could not explain them the truth. That Aunt Beate Spitzer had a child from her Hindi servant back in the time of Emperor Franz Joseph.

 

Panna:

 

– Being artists it is difficult to evaluate your reports. I understand you must mention this complicated pattern of ancestry because that way it is more acceptable that Geo and Ferko went to the Mosque.  But anyone can say he or she has Muslim ancestors. We must find the rest of the lost Diaries to find proofs maybe.

 

 

 

Robbie:

 

– So here we have our Geo and Fero, they learn Karate in the Halls of the Mosque. They are always among men, wrestling, learning together. And weekly there is a lecture by the Imam, where the Holy Quran is quoted: "Jews are the descendants of monkeys and pigs."

 

Ferko:

 

– Yes, we have heard in the Mosque that for people who were abandoned by their fathers they must get some extra manly touching that is why we did learn wrestling too.  Of course they never thought about being touched in  an erotically stimulating way. No. But we always did meditations by sitting back-to-back. In Sufism (which is the Kabbalist level of Islam) they say that in Spirituality it is the Hindparts touching each other that are the giving the most powerful Light to earthly people.

 

Panna:

 

– Yes. We do know that Freud has learnt the Zohar from the Lubavitcher Hasid Rebbe of his time. And Jung also learnt the basics from the Zohar. On archetypes. The Inner Mother and Father and the Inner Child…And the constant fantasies of Embracing. And how if these inner pictures are accepted,  the gender role imbalance may be cured. Because the shame is taken out of these pictures.

 

 

 Robbie:

 

– And both Dixie and Jancsi Szerb were raised in Orphanages not only their childen were put there. Anthony Szerb also complains in his Diaries about being far away from his father. And Aunt Beate was having problems with her mother.  Aunt Claire similarly always contended with her mother. So yes, parenting deficit may be a common feature in this family. So they all turn to Kabbala to heal. And strangely they are involved with some other messianist-kabbalist inspired evil deeds. The Killing of the Kings.

 

Panna:

 

– But it seems that the killings are not done by the Baltazzis after all. There is always some woman in the background.  Mary Vetsera-Baltazzi  could have first killed Rudolf after she heard about his idolizing of Ardjuni, the great-grandfather of our  Ferquo.  And Laura Hyman, the girlfriend of Proust could have arranged to kill his earstwhile lover, the Tzar of Serbia.  Like Edwina, lady Mountbatten , who was reportedly rather jealous when her husband hired young Arjuni as a driver who then fell in love with Miss Angela, the bride of this Thomas MacMahon, the arested perpetrator.

 

        Robbie:

 

– Let’s see Aunt Claire. I found an interview with her after the death of her son Jancsi.

 

Claire (we hear her voice from a recording):

 

 

– I rarely saw Janosh, he was always in town, running around with Dixie and consuming a lot of alcohol. That was the time when Dixie married Mary from the Löw family, called Lukács by then. Distant relatives of the Kabbalist Rabbis from the 16th century, like Löw and Luria.  I knew about it but I did not tell it to Jancsi. I also did not talk about his ancestors. I never mentioned the Paleologos ancestors. I did not want him to think himself a messianic pretender. Because I did not want him to learn Kabbalah and „fall in love” with a Rabbi, who claims he is the Massiah. And when Jancsi married I explained his wife Lisa, that we have to do everything to dissolve their friendship with Dixie. So we even called the police many times to them as they were shouting in the streets. And yes, we did arrange for the children to be taken away. There was no other way to diminish contact between the children. To save them from the family curse.

 

 

Ferko:

 

– I am not happy to have an Aunt who happens to be friends with famous Nazis like Gömbös or his minister Kozma. And now to realize that by joining this Muslim group I am also part of some Anti-Jewish movement.  

 

Robbie:

 

– We should not forget the mystical concepts of the Sums of the Yehowic Name. In a part of this Adam Kadmon world Soul on a certain Numerically detailed level (called SaG, which is 63) the Hindparts (Egoism, the Kings) fall down to the underneath  Sphere s Eyes (the Understanding, the Filtered desires: Binah, the Mother)

 

Shema:

 

– Aunt Claire was grateful for Kabbalah, because when Uncle Tony Szerb discovered the teachings of Luria throuhg Rabbi Ashlag, he at once got relief. He now could have his regular fatherless body-part fantasies without thinking that it is a sin.

So he loved to learn together with Ernie Szilágyi, who knew Ashlag and with Bela Tabor, who then wrote about these teachings in his books…And they did follow the Kabbalist custom of men dancing together embracing each other… Dixie and Jancsi always came home late in embraces. That is why Liza has denied access to Dixie and later arranged that the children should never ever meet.

 

Panna:

         – And that is why his son Geo is doing extravagant happenings to come in to the view of the Police and the Israeli Security people around the visiting President.

 

Panna:

–  I think that our artist Shema has some secret Roma members in her family. So she goes to live in Jancsi’s flat (without knowing about the Spitzer connection of the Szerb family) and then meets Ferko Ardjuni as a psychologist and she naturally tries to in troduce the two youngsters, Geo and Ferquo. Maybe unconsciously she wanted to help Geo to find a soul-mate. Who has also the same ancestors as him.

 

Robbie :

 

 – We should look after the parents of Miss Shema. Who knows, her mother might have been the very same woman who then became a Nanny in the Orphanage of Geo and little David Ben Dixie. So anyway, later Shema hears about Aunt Claire having some Diary…That might be identical with what Dixie has copied when he wanted to know more about his family.

But Aunt Claire tries to hide the Diaries. Stil, when she sleeps, the boys may find some parts of the text.

 

Panna:

 

– It is not too realistic as a possible reconstruction of the events of her last night. These children would not attack an old lady for any manuscript.

Robbie:

 

– But if Aunt Beate wanted to persuade the children about the secret messianic message around the diminishing of desires through not eating wheat..well, then maybe she had to pretend that she wants the Manuscripts to be hidden.

 

Shema has also some Diareis of those times: (Robbie is reading it)

At first I loved to be a waitress…Then I hated it but then I met Jancsi Szerb at a restaurant where I used to have my job then. And I also met his best friend, Dixie Gemesh and the young Bandi Szőke-Xantos. At that time Jancsi has divorced already from Liza and he lived alone but he needed someone to keep the flat clean and to cook. So in exchange I got a little room there. And there I got to know the whole avantgarde scene. Jancsi also wrote for a famous litterary magazine. He loved my way of cooking his favorite dishes and he always wanted pasta.”

 

Robbie:

 

– Anyway, if these diamants that are mentioned in the Manuscripts do exist, maybe then  we should know more about the relationship between Jancsi Szerb and actress Shema and Dixie.

 

Panna:

 

– But Shema wanted to hide her Roma ancestors and so she began to use his grandfather’s name, that was Spitzer. And we now know that there was a Hat Salon called Spitzer’s in Vienna where Mary Vetsera Baltazi first met Rudolph.

 

Robbie:

 

– It is strange that everyone was killed who witnessed the assassinaion of the Crown Prince in 1889.  

It is quite improbable that these assassinations have anything in common. But clearly the motives are recurring. There is some coincidental connection between Upper fantasy  worlds and the  real World Below. When the Hindpart is raised to the Eye a King is killed. So the fears of the Mothers are clear. If the Sons hear about Davidic ancestry they begin to learn Kabbalah and as they learn together the Eye falls ont he Hindpart and some fantasy killing also starts.

We should get in contact with these Israeli colleagues. One of them is called David Geshem. What if he is stemming from the Gemesh family and is the lost son of Dixie?

 

Panna:

 

– So it goes: the Lubavitcher rebbe goes to Sigmund Frued and Freud’s Journal publishes an article from a Löw-descendant Rabbi, who is the best friend of  Anthony Szerb, the writer. And we have the Gemesh family, who have Hungarian Princely ancestors, who also claim some davidic descent.

 

 

Ferko:

 

– Okay, I was released from the Police. They did no find anything. Yes, it is not nice that the Muslims speak against te Jews. But even this sergaent Geshem from Israel acqknowledged that they did not find any kind of weaponry. They said I better find some ancient Manuscript claiming that my great grandmother is indeed a relative of some Muslim Aga.

 

Now I see why all those people around the family were killed. They all healed from unwanted homoerotic desires through the Kabbalah (and its wheat diet) and this is dangerous - if men would all heal, who would go to become a soldier in the wars of less-developed people?

 

 

 

Epilogue

 

Zagreb, Croatia.

 

We see Shema and Ferquo and Bandi in a pizzeria. They  are attacked by the police , they start to fight.

 

 Bandi:

 

I think, Geo went to the flat of the Zagreb Baltashi family. Frau Baltashovic. Robbie also wants to get there for there is a suspicion that she has all the diamants.

Sergeant Volumic at Headquarters:

 – Hallo?

Shema:

 

– I am Shema Spitzer speaking

 

Volumic:

 

– From the 7 th of Petrovic street? Yes, we start out, we heard that there are flowers falling through a window.

 

 

We see as in the Petrovic street house of Frau Baltashovic, Geo and the Israeli officer cousin, David Geshem are fighting against each other. They both found out about the secret Stasi agent who killed their fathers, Jancsi Szerb and Dixie Gemesh.

Their faces were bloodied as they did have a few wounds effectuated by the flying flowerpots.

 

 

 Then we see the Policemen arriving.

 

They enter the room but it is empty.

 

 

Volumic:

 

– Okay, it was a fake alert. We leave.

 

(They do leave.)

 

We see the pseudo-wallpaper on the ceiling opening: Geo and David are hiding there.

 

Geo:

 

– David, it was your idea to hide behind this false ceiling. What can I do for you?

 

David:

 

– Nothing.

 

(Then David is leaving.)

 

Geo is sure that he did find the Notes or Diaries in a small package.

We do  hear his inner voice.

 

Geo:

 

– Maybe it is better to leave him alone.

Maybe Aunt Claire is right. Maybe there is a Family Curse. Fatherless cravings, Evil Eye directions on Hindparts, who knows.  Since generations it creates only havoc and tragedies.

 

 We see Sergeant Robbie outside as he follows from behind a tree the movements of David.

 

David steps over to him:

– Yes, hello.  I did find this package. I feel it is the diamonds and maybe a few papers from the Manuscript of my father.

 

 

 David steps over to a trash bin and throws the package into it.

 

And he goes away.

 

Robbie does recover the package. It is mostly papers.

 

Some papers do prove that the family had Muslim ancestors. King Mathias of Hungary (a distant relative)  claims in a letter that his cousin is the Sultan (due to his grandmother being married to the Sultan’s father.)

 

  Beate von Ryttoch:

My father’s father’s mother and her father s father ’s father had a sister, Barbara, who married Aga Hassan and had three children. In 1660. ”

 

Panna:

 

– Okay, the picture of this puzzle  begins to become a whole. The Egoist Hindpart-Kings are always killed by a Mother figure. Like in the time of the Pharao of Egypt.

 

 

 

 

 

Last words

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shema:

 

– So what is now left for us to do? Okay, Geo found out some interesting things in the past. But he left us.

 

Robbie:

 

– People will only know him as a crazy artist…No one will believe him. You should find out ways to disseminate these teachings. How to fight gender role disturbances with Kabbalah and the wheat diet…

 

Ferquo:

 

– What is the matter with this TV set? Why these lights? Oh…we are watching a cassette it was not  a real Football Match.

 

Shema:

 

– So the whole incident was manipulated by Geo?

 

Bandi:

 

– It is a montage.

 

Liza:

 

– Oh I knew my son  is a bit crazy but that was too much, really.

 

 

 

Bandi:

 

– Maybe we can make a performance out of it.

 

         Shema.

 

– No one will be interested.

 

 

 

Panni:


           – And if they watch it, would they acceopt it? That we are all brothers: a        geocosmic Being…Muslims, Roma, Black Hindus and White Gentry…and all are Future-Holders, Ye-Hodis, Jews…

 

 

Shema:

 

– There is a Policeman coming up the stairs downstairs, he will ring the bell soon.

 

(The bell rings.)

 

 

 

Robbie talks to the policeman and then reports:

 

 

 

– The Israeli Security people let Geo released from the Vienna Police headquarters.  

 

Liza:

 

  –So this Geshem is the Ben Dixi? And they did meet after all? I wanted to keep them apart. Who knows, there were so many deaths before around this strange teaching...I did not want to let the Gemeshh family win the prize, the messianic pretender role of the generation!

 

 

Panna:

 

– But maybe Kabblists who claim that we are all Jewish (meaning Grateful Ones), maybe they are right. And then it is all the same who is born in which family…And  all these Kingly Killings are just inner events. They happen only in our Hearts.

 

Liza:

 

– Aunt Claire has tried to explain this to me. That there is two sides fighting inside…The Shadowy Geo Cosmos against the Real Sprout, the Adam Kadmon.

 

So when the two were in the Orphanage I decided to change them. I did want to save my son, Geo from this fate of belonging to the Shadowy Side. And I never wanted to grant the Good Side (The Geshem guy) any victory…

 

Shema:

 

– You mean the whole legend is just simply untrue? We are all just robots…and only the davidic family feud is real?  And there is always an Inner Woman who fights the Inner Man.

 

Liza:

 

– I did hide the Diaries when I relaized the children are going to visit Granma Claire to read excerpts of it.

 

And then Granma has awakened and saw me taking away the Notes and ..well she got frightened from my shadow in  the dark room and got a heart attack. I am sorry.

 

Liza is arrested by Robbie.
