Dr. Michal ben Horin: Listen, listen Charlie. We’ve known each other for some time and you know that I’m very secluded. I don’t understand these things. Imagine that I don’t do these, explain the energy, the music, what do you mean by it?
Manson: A long time ago, I started playing music.
Dr. Michal ben Horin: Yeah, but you don’t play and you still— What is that inner beauty inside of you called— that makes you, you. That special thing everyone makes of you, writes of you?
Manson: Life and energy, man.
Dr. Michal ben Horin: Can you tell me what you mean by that?
Manson: A long time ago, I started playing music. I still play it in my mind. They took my music away, but they didn’t take my soul away. They haven’t taken my soul, you can’t take my soul.
Dr. Michal ben Horin: What is it about you that makes you such an unbroken spirit?
Manson: All spirits are the same. You can’t break the spirit.
Dr. Michal ben Horin: Yeah, but you have a special spirit, why?
Manson: I don’t think. I quit thinking a long time ago.
Dr. Michal Horin: You did?
Manson: If you think, you get confused by things.
Dr. Michal ben Horin: What do you do in your cell?
Manson: I play with myself and I do what I feel like I want to do.
Dr. Michal Horin: How do you feel Charlie, about going up for parole?
Manson: I don’t know whether I want to go up for parole. I don’t see anything out there I want to parole out there to. Why would I want to go out there? What do they have out there that I want?
Dr. Michal ben Horin: What are you then? Who is the real Charles Manson?
Manson: That’s, that’s a beautiful question. Who is Charles Manson? He’s everybody and nobody.
