Ricepirate : The wilderness of your imagination is a dangerous place.  Great work as always.

Ett Gammalt Bergtroll : Finally - a religion that makes sense to me!

thesalanian : So here's my little analysis of the film. The Elephant's Garden: The Earth. The largest garden in the world, and as such, tended by mighty behemoths. The elephants could represent the natural laws of the universe that keep the earth alive and in balance. The majority of the film is a discussion on nature, about creation and destruction and consumption, and the transferral of energy. The first scene is about the terrible perils of predators who can disguise themselves as the things we love and need, only to prey on us using these desires. The second scene is similar, but instead of the predator being big, it is tiny. We see the phenomenon of how some animals produce millions of young only to literally throw them away (almost like farting them out, as the lump does), they are as insubstantial as bubbles. In environments such as these, the little serpent gets by by sneakily eating what is not noticed. The baby killed gets fat and laughs because his job is so easy. The third scene with the hummingbirds has several parts. I interpret portions with human faces to represent larger forces, like forces of nature, rather than creatures. The tree is the wisdom and comfort of environments that are safe, when the first bird is consumed by the cloud man, it is not eaten, but killed by greater natural causes outside it's control. The second bird is killed by lack of caution from a hiding predator. When the worm man is attacked by the stalk and fights back, he represents the hidden power which animals often hide, but which can become deadly when their life is threatened. The fourth scene is about how not all that is killed is consumed for useful purposes. The flowers push each other to show that they have little use on their own, but may be taken advantage of by the goat for pleasures beyond simple survival. This is how humanity begins to develop. The fifth scene is about the birth of humanity and it's roles versus animals. The hunters wear masks because they believe themselves to be important and with an identity beyond the world. But while they are chasing the bloodsuckers they suddenly discover the rope which chains earth to the elephants (they suddenly realise their own smallness in the face of the universe, much like astronomy). The animals meanwhile ignore this revelation and continue to reap the benefits of the natural world (feeding off the elephants), but this means they are utterly defenceless when great powers are indifferent to them (the elephant farmer and his bloodsucker-spray). Humanity knows to be afraid of the elephants. Finally, when the moon eats the sun, we see that the whole universe and the laws of physics and entropy are no different from earth and nature. Just as this world is always run by energy and exchange, so is the rest of everything.
