真相

標籤:

我突然覺得很感動﹐抓著這個虛擬世界內縣浮著的思想舞台...想起這招:"散れ,千本櫻景嚴"

很多年沒有這麼強烈的衝動﹐去想寫好一篇文章。去想寫﹐是因為我絕對相信思想是要受到衝擊才可以進化。何謂進化呢?不是因此會變得比以前聰明﹐也不是因為別人的回應可保證能給到你些什麼答案﹐更加未必可以因此而找尋到事實的全部...但是經過思考的發言﹐便給了頭腦一個解決事情的空間﹐有時可能更加加強錯誤的執著。所以問題是學習真相最重要的工具。看更多不同層面的事實﹐看多一些不同學者的意見(尤其是和自己對立的)﹐去複習一下所知﹐也尋多一點未知的﹐才可更加接近事實的真相。便由我小時最喜歡看的書之一﹐Sherlock Holmes 的作家﹐去打開這篇文章的始端。"... when you have eliminated the impossible, that which remains, however improbable, must be the truth." -Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

不知道你能記起自己小時的世界嗎? 當中雖然有龍﹐有怪獸﹐但也有正義的超人﹐黑白分明。哈!我小時就常常想﹐超人也是以暴力去解決問題的﹐為什麼? 為什麼不能用暴力? 阿媽條藤條﹐不是正義公理的最高權杖嗎? 那時對錯﹐也全是由他人告訴你的罷? 真相﹐說起上來很簡單: "To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true." -Aristotle 但是這麼簡單的句子﹐今天的我就看了兩次才確定我沒了解錯。真實﹐隨著年紀才複雜起來的吧! "The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple." -Oscar Wilde 人越長大﹐黑白之間的灰色地帶就越擴得大﹐很多時事實也不再是絕對。世間千奇百怪﹐甚至難再相信自己可信。"It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense." -Mark Twain 對著一幅抽像畫﹐一個小孩可以毫不猶疑告訴你好與壞﹐但一個成年人就算不喜歡﹐如果不是什麼深究藝術的﹐多數還會說得留一點餘地﹐免得給人說沒文化修養。"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." - Oscar Wilde 怕被人笑﹐怕惹麻煩﹐現代人的恐懼這麼多﹐就算事實放在面前﹐很多時根本就缺乏勇氣去面對。 "Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened." - Winston Churchill

看過撒謊者的真話這兩句﹐才挑起了我多年對現實﹑對錯的念頭﹐不敢說了解很多﹐卻是自己 [的感受]。"We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgement of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, as must, if it be honest, also come an understanding of its inadequacy." -Carl Jung 在政治﹐偉大的理念﹑理知慢慢被謊言矇蓋﹐不知何時﹐連事實也需偽裝。"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." -George Orwell 也不是所有政治家也需要掩飾的﹐我十分佩服的邱吉爾豪邁性格那面。 "The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is." - Winston Churchill 當然那也還或許是種掩飾﹐因為可能這些就是政治家的說話﹐連最謊謬的元首也說著真理﹑真義。 "The most powerful force in the world is not a weapon or a nation but a truth.. that we are spiritual beings and that freedom is the soul’s right to breathe." -George W Bush & "The blunt truth about the politics of climate change is that no country will want to sacrifice its economy in order to meet this challenge, but all economies know that the only sensible long term way of developing is to do it on a sustainable basis." -Tony Blair 可能他們是揣摸到騙子高手的真義﹐‘十真一假’的道理吧。

宗教和政治﹐同樣是需要盲目的擁護者。"In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing." -Mark Twain 一方面告訴你去尋找事實真義﹐"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you" -Mat 7:7 去相信真義﹐"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John VII 另一面卻教導你自欺的手法。 "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done to him." -Mark 11:23 在我看來﹐和 George Orwell 的 1984 情節相近﹐每人也硬說2+2=5﹐那便是‘事實’。問題就是﹐當兩方面深信了這些‘事實’﹐而這些‘事實’不合﹐就會引起混亂。"The belief that there is only one truth, and that oneself is in possession of it, is the root of all evil in the world." -Max Born 時間證實不了一切﹐但是歷史卻會反復重演。新的信仰會被創立﹐舊的也會被時代遺棄﹐卻是年期長遠的貨品。 "Religions die when they are proved to be true. Science is the record of dead religions." - Oscar Wilde 《附:財源廣進規模龐大

做人我希望盡量率真﹐實事求事﹐別人可能以為我‘吋’﹑‘自大’﹐不過我只說出見到的事實。"A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That's where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It's having backbone." -Robert Kiyosaki, The author of ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ 而這些事實﹐是要用心去感受的。 "I never came upon any of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking." -Albert Einstein (用於科學態度雖有點嚇人﹐嘻) 在工作上要小心點﹐得饒人處且饒人﹐也還希望不用留下血路。"The true measure of a career is to be able to be content, even proud, that you succeeded through your own endeavors without leaving a trail of casualties in your wake." -Alan Greenspan 社會上的笑面虎多的是﹐我可少怕。"Everyone sees who I appear to be with me kept unknown. You see only what I choose to show, with much behind the smile untold."

Zeke 說...

耶穌語錄原型《多馬福音》中第二句有著《馬太福音》7:7 更仔細的描述:

「在尋找的,就該鍥而不舍的找下去。
當他找著後,必先懊惱困惑;
懊惱困惑後他必然驚嘆不已,
並能駕御萬有,得到永恆的息止。」

第三句續:
「若果你的嚮導告訴你:『看!天國就在天上』,
那麼小鳥便該比你捷足先登天國了;
若果他們告訴你:『天國在海裡』,
那麼魚兒就比你疾足先得天國了。
然而,天國既是在你心中,
又是在身外。
當你悉知自己,
你就會悉知自己原已是永生天父的兒子。
倘若你對本我一無所悉,
你就是貧無立己之處了。」

總會有人說「基督在這裡,基督在那裡」。唯心所現,唯識所變,只有自性不會變,「天國」、「基督」或「真相」不會在此無常的人間,卻就在你心中。
