History has two types of creative personalities. First, the specialist, who produced remarkable values and crystallized qualities as a result of a very closed concentration to one particular sphere only. Second, the polyhistor, who produced remarkable values and crystallized qualities as a consequence of rainbow scale activites, of interpenetrated applications of varied scientific and artistic experiences. Zoltan Demme belongs to this group. However, what is the basic path of his four decades long rainbow scale activity? It is the fronting and facing the tragic features of the human status. Confronting the death, the passage of time, the lifetime bondage to the same body and soul, and many other restrictive peculiarities of our status and situation. During the history, human life had been described by scientists, philosophers, other mastermind of mankind so often as a minute, insignificant, absurd occurence. Also, the human beings have been hit so frequently by discovering the futility of their lives, the final meaninglessness and  absurdity of activities. As Zoltan Demme thinks, it is high time to front those fatal factors that determine the general absurdity of our status and situation, to search for methods to cease them or to find ways to reduce their prescence and influence. At the end of his path varied models of New Worlds stand (Programme One, Promotion One). But beside the insignificancy and absurd characteristics of our status, the states and societies of us also generate many absurd events and occurences. E.g. famine, starvation, abuse of poor people, as absurdities of our economy. E.g. false propaganda, mass manipulation, miseducation, as absurdities of our culture. E.g. discrimination of people, restriction of people by obsolescent rules, as absurdities of our justice; and so on. Thus, knowing the fact that the influence of scientific and artistic creations are weakened in our age, knowing that to direct films, to compose operas, to conduct researches is not enough, Zoltan Demme began to form service groups and other organizations and he began to act practical way against absurd occurences and painful problems of our everyday world.  He does this parallel with composing, writing, researching, while at the end point of all his social activities varied models of  New Social Systems  appear  (Programme One).
Summaries a bit distort the meaning of their subjects always and our above abstract probably does not represent an exception. But vivid and lively films,operas,plays we can offer as a contrast of our academic summary,if any respected visitor of our site needs more information or just a more vital picture on the issue.It would be a pleasure for us if you would visit our main page:http://zoltandemmeworks.net/page3d.html , http://zoltandemmeworks.net/page4temp4.html , http://zoltandemmeworks.net/page7c.html , and others for further reference.
