Boredom and curiosity are perfect prerequisites for mental progress. Tarzan hangs around most of the time until he decides to enter the mysterious hut. Here he encounters a collection of books by his deceased parents. He discovers language and ultimately himself through images. Tarzan thus has to distance himself from his familiar jungle environment. He moves out and lives alone, torn between the animal and the human world, because Tarzan is both: culture and nature. The learning process has separated his reality into relevant units and thus created insurmountable rifts. Tarzan cannot get over this conceptual status quo. From now on he is not allowed to return to jungle paradise.
