c) But direct can be made not only from the past to the present, but also from the present into the future. The true meaning of the anthill, for example, a certain lonely mind looking the part in the earthly affairs, 200 million years ago, it was unclear. And the same is now unclear and higher meaning of human activity. The central theme of Nabokov artist, connecting it with Nabokovym- philosopher, is the theme of "The Artist and God." Artistic creation and Creator. The artist is a poor ant of God, his work is a parody of creation, and its creation is a model of divine creation, so do not come into contact with the world of God, as the ant world is not in contact with our world. When similarity in mimicry, parody in bending. Hence the meaning of grievous way of knowledge on Nabokov - in discovering the world mimikrichnosti its parody and schadenfreude. He himself did not understand the force of law in the parody of the genre, that is, too, became a victim of some kind of satanic parody. And the gift of the artist, the intuition of the things he felt - if to parody his style - his disastrous intelligibility.
