00:03:06 He was an idiot. But I loved him.
00:03:08 Then there was mother, who made the most delicious blintzes in the world.
00:03:16 Of course, there was Old Gregor, and his son, Young Gregor.
00:03:19 Young Gregor's son was older than Old Gregor.
00:03:22 Nobody could figure out how that happened.
00:03:25 My two brothers, Ivan and Mikhail, used to play amusing little games.
00:03:29 But I had a completely different concept of myself as a child.
00:03:35 My first experience with death was with one of our serfs, Old Nehamkin.
00:03:41 Old Nehamkin was on the roof, putting up a lightning rod, when a storm broke out.
00:03:46 After he failed to show up for dinner, Mother went to look for him.
00:03:50 What is it, Old Nehamkin? You're not looking well.
00:03:54 Are you OK? You feel all right?
00:03:57 We laid Old Nehamkin to rest,
00:03:59 and that night I had a strange and vivid dream.
00:04:26 I knew that after that dream I would not grow up to be an ordinary man.
00:04:31 I spoke often with Father Nikolai,
00:04:33 who was always dressed in black with a black beard.
00:04:36 For years I thought he was an Italian widow.
00:04:39 Every action has a cause. The universe exists, therefore it has a cause.
00:04:43 It follows God created the universe, therefore He exists.
