May I have my time back?



(continued from  Sorrow of the Candle)


....And it came a child.

The child liked to play with wax. He gathered the wax tears with a little knife and made them burn again.

The Candle groaned. He hadn’t expected such a turn. Though he knew it quite well, there were children everywhere. And fires were persistent. They shall be burning.

The Candle asked again: “May I have my time back?”

The old man said, “You knew my answer long ago.“

The Candle said, “Is it still valid?”
 
The old man said, “Yes, definitely yes.”

The Candle said, “Then you will not say no to me?”

The old man said, “I will not say no. And your possibilities are not limited.”

It was at this time a group of young people came. They cleaned the place and put on new candles, drinks and lots of chairs, tables. They are going to celebrate something.

They lighted up new candles from the old candle.

The Candle was happy. He was very happy. He had new life and new friends again.

Sorrow of the Candle

Sorrow of the Candle


The Candle had been enjoying burning, now his wax was almost finished.

He was upset.

The old man said: “you have been working for a long time, now you might need a rest. “

The Candle said: “Where is my light? Where are they? ”

The old man said, “Your light has been useful to so many people. Don’t you remember?”

The Candle said, “Yes, I remember. But they had never come back.”

The old man said, “You want them back?”

The Candle said, “When people were with me, I was happy. They were singing, dancing and sometimes reading in front of me. I miss them. I am so lonely.”

Wax tears of the Candle were dropping like rain. The old man found the Candle was crying, he said, “Why are you crying?”

The Candle said, “I can’t stop my tears. I miss my friends. No one is coming back.”

The old man said, “Me too. I miss them. “

The Candle said, “People used me to mark time, now my time is gone. If I cannot have my friends back, can you help me have my time back?”

The old man said, “Well, time is……..”

The Candle said, “Please don’t tell me what time is. Sorry I am not that smart to understand it. I just want them back. I want all my teachers, my friends, my dad and my mum back. Oh please, I am so lonely.”

The old man said, “Do you have a pencil?”

The Candle said, “Yes.”

The old man said, “Please write down their stories, they will be back in your memories.”

The Candle looked at the old man. He wanted to give it a try. As the old man had explained to him, there is no time and space in stories, he might bring back his treasure ones.

The Candle was quiet for a long time. He has got no wax to weep now. We didn’t know whether he was happy or not.

And we have observed an irrelevant episode here. The Candle had lost a chance to know what time is, as he had refused the old man. He will be happier if he has got the idea of time.

What is the difference between a nature and a culture ?

9177  What is the difference between a nature and a culture  20180721



If we know the difference, we will be different. We can bring the world into peace a bit faster, if we know the inner secret between nature and culture. 

What is a culture?

Culture is the product of human, while nature is the product of another thing.

You would say, nature is the product of nature, or, nature is the produce of a super nature, or to put it straight, nature is a product of an alien, or a God, or a creator of the nature. Nature can be a product of anything, but not a product of our culture.

From the issue of The Thailand cave rescue in 2018, we can glimpse a patch of light for our future.

We can see that people were completely concerned about the fate of 13 strangers who were trapped in a cave accidentally. For a period of three weeks, people around the world were eagerly watching the news from Thailand, hoping for the safety of them.

Is it out of cultural behavior, or out of the original human nature?

Cultural behavior could be artificial. And most of the human behavior were just products of ancient designs. We are acting to the teachings of our ancestors who might or might not be right. We can see how the Indians or the Chinese or the Jews think and act according to a certain pattern of artificial culture setup.

However, there must be a human nature which is not biased by the culture setup governing the human behavior.

What is human nature?

From the issue of the Thailand cave rescue, you can see them.

So what?

We had had our confidence on human back again, knowing there is a hope ahead of us. We were just like the boys. We were trapped in darkness for too long. Now we can see a light ahead. And we know life is deserving. We shall obey the call from our inner nature, if we feel something unnatural from our culture setup which is bounding us most of the times.

What is the message coming from the Thai cave?


9176   What is the message coming from the Thai cave? 20180718



Twelve boys and their foot ball coach were trapped in a cave in North Thailand accidentally. It had created a huge concern all over the world. Numerous people offered help. It seems the boys were not strangers, but close relatives of every one. The issue had last for three weeks, and it made us think of something about human nature.



We are living in a place not so pleasant. Its dangerous and unsafe, and sometimes ugly. Many people consider themselves lonesome. Many are living alone and dying alone. The cases of lonely death arise sharply in many countries.  



Can we expect to live in a place like outside the Thailand cave, where every one is busy working to help the needy, and every one is friendly to each other. And I would think three weeks are too short and the place too small. Can we build a big community big enough to accomplish every one?



That is a temptation difficult to resist. However, Utopia was proved a failure. Utopia can happen briefly in a short time in a small place, but it cannot last. It is very difficult to understand, when human nature is proved to be so nice, but the wish to keep it as an everyday practice never succeeded.



What is the meaning hidden here?



And there were so many theories to explain it. Though I cannot see any one is practical enough to be successful.



And you will find finally that the most important part is not in a theory, but in a strong and wise leadership. Plato had talked about the concept of a philosophy king. It was also a funny joke. As any good leadership could only be the fruit of a wise culture. And the event in Thailand was also one.

An old article




How Can US Work With China in the Planet?


It seems the US is in the winning position. But it is not. The US is fighting a low level war with China and some other countries in the whole world. For example, Iran. The US had tried to hinder and deter Iran. It includes the killing of some Iranian scientists, supporting the Kurds, etc. This kinds of low level activities only pushed Iran made up their mind to follow the routes of North Korea.

Can the US made up her own mind to raise the levels? Only higher levels of fighting can lead America into a real path of success. 

That means not America First, but Human First. That means a complete change of the mindset of the American people. They will not put seeking pleasure into their aims of life. They have a higher aim of life, that is seeking the truth and loving each other. 

Terrorists were the product of hate. And hate is the product of materialism. When every one is seeking pleasure, putting others as enemies, the world will be in a situation the US can not handle. 

The US is very successful in China Hong Kong. The low level tactics against China has almost succeeded. If the Chinese people can not know the secret tactics of the US, they will be in the hands of foreigners very soon.

China has no control over the medias in Hong Kong. China has no control over the student movements in Hong Kong. Secret underground party controlled every thing.  And the influence is not limited in Hong Kong only. If you open the Baido search engine, you will see how they are promoting sex and a lifestyle of materialism. Parents in China have been complaining the difficulties in teaching the younger generation. The problem is in the total mindset of the Chinese people. They are too busy handling economic matters. They are almost the same with the US. Both the US and China have no aim in life. The so called patriotic education is only empty words in the Chinese media. They had not been working on it. Every one is looking at money. 

There is a secret political underground organization in Hong Kong. It controls the students and the media and businessmen and much more. They will over turn the Chinese governing party sooner or later. It will not be surprising if the next leader in China is under control of the secret underground party and the control of the US. 


Will the US achieve this? May be not. It will be in a total uncontrollable situation starting not from North Korea, but Iran and the middle east. Situation inside US will become worse and worse. The terrorists will build their kingdom inside US very soon. A nuclear war is very likely to happen. 

I do not want to mention the secret underground party in my articles. But they were pushing me to write. My life is threatened in Hong Kong. 

Years ago they had put snakes behind me. They had cut the tail of a snake and threw the painful snake at my back, hoping the snake would bite me. I was luckily escaped at least for two occasions like that. And they had been driving vans and cars towards me. I was nearly knocked down a couple of times. The last time was this morning. 

No one dare to mention the secret underground party here. They are the livelihood of almost every one. They are you job, your marriage and your business. 

But this is very low level tactics only. Will they be successful?  

I doubt that.

How can the tortoise beat the wolf ?

9174  How can the tortoise beat the wolf ?  20180706


When tortoise papa addressed the meeting of tortoises, no one bothered to listen. And no one believed him. May be he was too philosophical which in the language of tortoise meant not practical. And he was too slow. As the wolf was near, every one wished to beat the wolf quickly and chase him out. They hope to have a peace time like before. That is why the tortoises were having a meeting, to discuss how to handle the situation urgently.

Tortoise papa said, you ought to remain a tortoise to beat the wolf. And that was funny. Am I not a tortoise? How do I "remain" a tortoise?

Tortoise papa had explained the idea many times. He thought that was the only way to survive the attacks of the wolf. However, few of the tortoises believed him. They thought it is better to have the teeth of the wolf. Some of the tortoises believed that it was their natural defect to have no teeth. They have only beaks. Teeth seemed to be the only remedy for the tortoises. And they meant it. They managed to buy some teeth from the neighborhood store of the fox. The fox sold them some artificial teeth, which was as sharp as a knife and as white as a chalk. When it was installed in the mouth of a strong and young tortoise, every tortoise were happy, especially the female tortoises. They thought the teethed tortoise was extremely handsome. They had never seen a tortoise armed with such beautiful teeth before.  The fox did make a fortune selling artificial teeth, as it was now a popular wear of the young tortoises. 

It was almost at the end of the meeting and the wolf did come. Every body fled except the tortoise papa. He was too slow and too old to run. Sets of artificial teeth was left on the ground. The young tortoises were running too fast and dropped them. 

The wolf did spot the teeth. He laughed. "What, did you mean to fight me with this toy teeth?"

Tortoise papa groaned. He did not argue with the wolf. He just tugged away the tail and limbs from the wolf.

The wolf felt insulted. He was very angry. He tried to bite the tortoise. But his teeth were not strong enough to break the shell of the tortoise. He kept sniffing the tortoise, trying to find out the weak points of the tortoise. Actually he was sniffing and circling the tortoise repeatedly. He knew the tortoise will stick out something sooner and later. He was waiting a chance to bite when the tortoise was tired and relaxed. Tortoise papa was highly alerted and remain firm like an iron heap. Now the wolf changed a tactic. He sniffed the tortoise patiently. He wanted to know which part is which and was trying to locate an attacking point. He was delighted to find out the nose of the tortoise. As he had found different smell from that point. He kept sniffing the nose of the tortoise. And suddenly at a split second the tortoise stuck out his head and bite. Not every one can predict such speed from a tortoise. The tortoise had bitten the nose of the wolf and he was keeping his beak so tight that it was said the tortoise will release the bite only when there is a thunder strike. The wolf tried to release himself from the heavy beak of the tortoise but failed. He was so painful that he was yelling like a baby and fled the scene. He was running so fast and he did not realize until a distance that he was carrying the tortoise to run. The tortoise was hanging under his nose swinging comfortably when he was running. The wolf had never had such an experience of huge pain that he was running faster and faster and he did not notice his nose was gone completely together with the tortoise somewhere.  

The tortoise rolled silently to the roadside with a large piece of fresh meat from the wolf. He had found the most delicious part of the wolf. It was the nose. It was soft and tasty.  He had seldom enjoyed a good time like this before.    

The other tortoises gathered and all agreed that you have to be yourself always.

Can anyone steal trees from America? 20180626

9173  Can anyone steal trees from America?  20180626


The trade war between China and United States could be expressed in the following three concepts:

The soil, the tree and the fruit.

People only noticed the tree and the fruit.  

The problem is can you remove a tree from one country to another?  The Chinese were not only buying fruits. They brought trees. They brought the whole factory from the States to China, and produce American fruit in China.

Its seems ok for every one at first, as long as the Americans were happy to sell the trees. 

And it is very natural that finally they found it not good to sell trees. 

It is up to the Chinese to think every thing over. 

Should they pursue a similar tactic to buy trees? 

Why don't they grow their own Chinese trees, and sell the Chinese fruits to the world?

And this is extremely important. It seems the Chinese have never realize they have a very good soil too. And trees are from the soils. 

And the Chinese had been well aware that to grow a tree need ten years time. It cannot and it should not be brought overnight.

It is a long way for the Chinese to go.  They have to realize the nature of their own soil first. We expect they could have a change.

(An old question raised 7 years ago)

What makes America products competitive ?
(Quest No.8249e                   2011/10/05)


In my view, America products are competitive in their advanced culture. The American has been leading the way for the last two hundred years. They have the most advanced airplanes, space ships, computers, mobile phones, etc. These kinds of products are very competitive. Apple had opened two new stores in Hong Kong and Shanghai last week. They proved people like American products; people are willing to pay more for them; not a little more, but a lot more. People queued over night for new products coming from America. 

Why the American people have a better technology, while the others have not? Even the Europeans like the Nokia, or the Asians like the Sam Sung can hardly complete with them. Why?

In my view, this remains a culture secret.

An apple tree grew in the soils of America, if removed else where, like Japan or Korea or China, will never has the same good apples on the tree. The tree is but the tool of the soil. The apple is from the soil. The iphone 5 is from the soil. And the soil is the western culture itself. And the culture is in the minds of every American. Or we can say the iphone 5 is from Benjamin Franklin, from Abraham Lincoln, from Thomas Edison, from Martin Luther King, from John Lennon and etc.

The Japanese, the Korean, the Chinese all bought trees from America. They hired American scientists and engineers, but can they produce the same good apples? Obviously not. They can buy the tree, but they can never buy the soil. If hot competition is coming in the future, people should watch out for products from the other soil, not products from the relocated trees. 

And many of the America competitive power is hidden, for they have not put all their products to the market. You can never buy a stealth plane, or other higher secret military product from the market. That means, the Americans have not shown all their might in competitiveness.

Competitive power is from the inner core of the culture itself.

Now, from the Global edition of the New York Times yesterday (2011.10.4.), we saw comments from Paul Krugman. He said, "…we need to make American product more competitive, which in practice means that we need the dollar's value to fall in terms of other currencies…."

May be he needs to reconsider the real inner power of the competitiveness of the American culture.

What is the difference in Qi and Electricity?


Question no. 9172

What is the difference in Qi and Electricity 20180618


I would like to note some of my personal observations about qi.

First and the most difficult part about Qi, is that the qi is controllable within living bodies only. Not every one can control qi. But an experienced person can help others to stimulate the flow of qi. 

Can it go outside a living body like electricity? Up to the present moment, I can only see that qi could be pasted from one body to another body, and even from or to plants and pets. It seems that the energy of Qi can only travel between living bodies but not metals, rocks or inorganic compounds. Qi may not lit up a light or push an engine. But I am not sure about it.  

Secondly, Qi can be induced by outside energies.  Needles can induce qi, and the heat of burning weeds, and even a hairdryer can induce qi. I am using the word "induce" here, but I do not have any measure of it. I cannot tell how much qi within a body was induced. I can only observe, if the suitable qi was induced, then the related illness can be healed. 

Thirdly, electricity can induce qi. If you put a electrically charged metal point on the body, you can feel the far away meridian points are reacting. And this is a question need to observe: could qi and electricity be combined and mixed? And what is the relation between the two energies?

Fourthly, the meridian map of qi in the human body were mapped by ancient scholars. It was not known who had discovered qi first, or who had prepared all the theories about qi. However, it was known how the qi flows within the body. If the flow is smooth, then every thing is ok. If the flow is blocked, illness follows. So keep the rivers of qi flowing were important.

How fast can the Chinese pick up science?

9171 How fast can the Chinese pick up science 20180610



The U.S. is trying desperately to limit the quick development of science elsewhere in the world, especially China. 

And indeed they were successful in many ways. 

Technologies were locked up and scientists killed, though the U.S. knew it perfectly well that science is not to be monopolized. It could be developed like uncontrollable wild fire. 

However, science in the whole world have not been achieving fast. It is completely not the fault of the U.S., its only that science has come to a dead end without breakthrough. 

What? Aren't they making unmanned vehicle and Artificial Intelligences now? Is it not developing very fast? 

No, they are not fast enough. It is because, they are running on the old track, and are using the old format of science.  

If you observe how a bird fly, you will agree with me. It must be completely different format of science when the creator was creating them. 

And the hint could be in the ancient science in China. Yet even the Chinese themselves did not know the inner secret of their own science. 

The understanding of the human body is completely different in China. It is more then acupuncture points. It is in "qi" the basic power of human body, and "qi" could be a more subtle form of electricity, or something out of our imagination. 

However, the Chinese were disappointing in studying their own science. 

They ought to have been achieving much more faster, but failed. 

The Chinese have been trying desperately only to catch up with the U.S. 

They have been following every path of the U.S., from the development of war planes, iphones, and now Chips or CPUs etc. 

They have never known, the Chinese science is another approachable approach for a new format of science. If they can find out the ultimate secret of the Chinese science, the whole world could be turned up-side-down.

They have not been aware that the Chinese medicine is another form of Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics, they thought it is only a convenient medical application. There have been no great finding in the Chinese medical science. They have been not successful to study the inner format. They were too busy to make fast money and to follow the path of the West. They are doing every thing the West has been doing. 

And this is the main reason why the Chinese is so slow in science development.

What do you need to know about China and the world ?

9170 What do you need to know about China and the world    20180604


My new book has been published today. Interested people can read it directly from my blog, which is free but it needs some time to consume it. You can obtain a hard copy by Whatsapp to my number 852-91864286 for a mere hundred something Hong Kong dollars. The most expensive part of the book is time. It's a big book of nearly 500 pages. It is entertaining for many and hard thinking for a few. As for those who need desperately to understand more about China, I will advise them to read only three and half chapters, which are Chapters 1, 6, 7 and half of the Chapter 8.  You can join your country's foreign affair office to be a skillful diplomat armed with the knowledges about Chinses spirit and the formation of the world culture setup long ago before all the conflicts and wars started around the whole world. 

The book is written in Chinese. For those who do not know Chinese language, now they have a small chance to learn it through a short seminar held by the author. Stories in the book will be narrated in English. You need a few weeks to finish reading the book, but you need only two or three hours in the seminar to know the essence of the Chinese spirits and the culture setups.

What is the implication from the trade war crisis ?

9170  What is the implication from the trade war crisis 20180523

The implication for the US is simple. US is still the leading and dominating power in the world. There will not be challenge for them at the moment. China is not able to beat the US. 

And it is wise for the US people to find out the key point in the whole issue. The key point is a little chip hidden in every computer and every hand devise. And it is more then that. The chip is in Satellites and far reaching machines in the Space. It is the heart of almost every thing, yet the Chinese people did not realize it, or they had been drown in the sweet wine of lies as they were told that they are strong enough to beat the US in a very short period of time. 

It seems to be a joke. But that is a bitter joke. It is funny for the US people, but bitter for the Chinese.  

I do hope the Chinese people are wise enough to know that the key point is not in the chip. 

And it is not in science and technology. If any one tell the Chinese that it is all because they were weak in science only, that must be another swimming pool of sweet wine for them to jump into. 

It is not in science and technology. 

The weak point is in culture. 

But there seem to have no Chinese audience for such a subject. I had been writing for at least three decades about the matter. Chinese culture is right-brain orientated, and Chinese culture had been in the mind set of morals. And there were hidden rules in the Chinese moral. And the rules were only a circle of track of a train. The train could only go round and round and can reach nowhere. 

The Chinese people need to have a new insight to see into the matter: 

That if you are determined to stand up, you must stand up in two legs. One is the external necessities and the second leg is the internal mind. 

How am I to find out my mind?

I hope to have one more decade to write on.

What will China learn from the trade war crisis ?

9169 What will China learn from the trade war crisis    20180521

The Chinese will learn many things. If the US just take away intel, they can cripple the Chinese, at least in the field of computers. And if the US take away Windows, Android, and even the operation systems from the Apple, the Chinese will have a very difficult time. 

The point is why the Chinese could not predict this foreseeable result long ago?  Why they did not write their own operation systems? And why they had allowed the Chinese made computers use the "intel inside" labels for such a long time?

When the rich new tycoons in China busy in making fast money, was there any one ever sits down and think?

And now they will learn a lesson. There are two kinds of money. One is fast and unreal. The other is slower but real. 

You need to earn your real money. 

Yet the question is a real question. Why they cannot predict the foreseeable future?

Tortoise and the Bird

Tortoise and the Bird


When the bird saw the tortoise, the tortoise had just slipped into a stone pit accidentally. He tried very hard to climb out, but the stone fence was taller than his body,  he can only fell upside down each time. He tried desperately to turn over with his long neck to support the body. And he fell again. 

The bird said, "Sir, can I  help you?"

The tortoise said, "Oh please, can you bring me a stepping stone? If I can step a little higher, I am sure I can climb out."

The bird said, "Oh yes, I will."

She flew immediately away to search for a stepping stone. When she came back, she spitted out a piece of small pebble the size of a sand from her beak. That was all she could carry. 

The tortoise said, "Oh, I am sorry, I ought to know a stepping stone is too heavy for you."

The bird said, "Never mind, I will go again."

The bird had flew an unknown number of times. She carried back only a small amount of sand. The tortoise tried to pile up the sand, but it was futile. The bird wanted to go again though she was very tired. 

The tortoise said, "Oh, please don't . It is too much for you. I don't want to waste your life to save me. I will try some other means to do that. "

The bird said, "You just wait a little more. I will go again."

The tortoise said, "Oh no, I will dig sand from the ground. " The tortoise used his strong beak to dig on the stone ground, the stone did loose some sand for him. However, he was bleeding heavily after a few trials. 

The bird said, "Oh no, that won't work. Let me go to find some more sand for you. "

Without waiting answer from the tortoise, the bird flew quickly away. The tortoise could only shout, "Don't, it would kill you."

When the bird flew back, the tortoise pleaded with the bird in tears. He said, "You are an angel. But I don't want to exchange my life with yours. I will not go out even you bring back a ton of sand. I shall never step on your sand."

The bird said, "You are an angel too. I will stay here together with you. "

When they were looking at each other with tearful eyes, no one can tell whether they were sad or happy. They were both trembling like some electric had shocked their minds. 

And suddenly a sparkle sprang from their eyes almost at the same time. 

The bird said, may be we will try other things. 

The turtle said, "Yes."

The bird flew again. She brought back a piece of branch. And then another piece of branch. Then another. She was building a nest near the stone wall. She brought back a large piece of foam plastic finally. 

When the turtle was out of the trap of the stone pit, both of them were in a very special ecstasy. The bird danced on the back of the turtle. 

The wise pair had became very good friends forever.

How to acquire energy from Mozart, Shakespeare or Tolstoy?

9167 How to acquire energy from Mozart, Shakespeare or Tolstoy? 20180423

If you feel fresh or even enlightened from them, you may or may not have acquired energy from them. May be you are a little smarter or feel relaxed, or even excited but still, you have acquired very few of their energy. And you will not be as talented as they had been. 

It won't be so easy to acquire the much treasured energy from a talent. 

However, energy was still there pending for someone to extract. Energy would not have been gone with the talents into another world. The talented people may be gone, but their talent stayed. It was always there. 

And this is the most important secret about the world. The world is composed of two things. One is the inner spirit or enengy, the other is the external material. Materials will not be gone, it is still in the planet earth in another form. And the same is with the inner spirits. They will not be gone. They are still here with you and me. 

Can you acquire some of them and feel stronger? Yes, that is possible. 

The only question is HOW. How am I to acquire some talented spirit and be as talented as the talents? 

Yes that is easy. You laugh together with them and more importantly, you weep with them. You feel shocked together with them. You must have the same feeling together with them to acquire their wisdom and energy. 

That means, you must have seen the same thing with them. You saw what they have seen. 

Can you read a great novel and weep together with the author? Can you listen to a piece of great music and weep together with the composer?  Oh yes, you have succeeded in extracting the energy from them. All the best with you. You are and you will be as talented as the geniuses in the world. God bless you. And God will say, thank you.

What is a “Soft War”?

9167 What is a "Soft War"? 20180421


The "Soft war" Strategy is an age old secret policy of the US. It was developed in the second world war and was used in China during that time. 

Before you fight a hard war with anyone, first you prepare a "soft war", and this is the wisdom of the wise United State politicians. 

In the soft war, secret agencies will occupy most of the mind machines and the machine operators in the country. During the times of the second war, it was known as an ideology war. But the term is not so correct when the tides of ideologies were faded away. 

Secret agencies will demonize the enemies, and sanctify the western values. They will use different tactics to control the media and most important of all, to control the voice leaders. 

And that was cheap. Much cheaper then the use of missiles. 

The recent Syrian war was a total failure of the soft war tactic. The United States had lost both the soft war and hard war in Syria. 

However, the same soft tactics were used in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. And the results were obvious. 

If you go into any one of the book stores in China today and ask for a copy of "Dream of the Red Chamber", you will see the author of the book is "Cao Xue Qin", which was a wrongly assigned name by Hu Shi, who was the most important soft war leader for the United States since the second World War. He was offered 35 honorary PHDs from most of the western Universities and was considered as a voice leader. His influence was still strong not only in Taiwan, but in mainland China. And that was why, the most important book of the traditional Chinese culture was still under the spell of him.

Will there be a soul in the alien?

9165 Will there be a soul in the alien? 20180417

If you ever have a chance to meet an alien, be sure to check with the alien, if he has got a soul or not. 

What? How can I even check with another human being to see whether he has got a soul? How can I be sure that an alien has a soul?

And this is not a joke. It is important. 

   It's the difference of the East and the West. The Chinese way seemed to be more aware of the inner side while their counterpart in the West seldom cares about it. 

For, if we are sure that an alien has a soul same as we human beings, then, we can be sure that the Universe itself is composed of two parts, one being the external and materialistic side of things, and the other is the spiritual and  inner part of the Universe. 

It would help to see if there is a God in the Universe. If the aliens got souls also, then they might have their own God. And their God could possibly  be same with our God, if you think similarly. 

Now, if the aliens are soulless, that would hint for another resolution.

With anything which has a soul, you can communicate with it. Even the soul is a devil, still you can handle with your skill and wisdom. 

If the alien has got no soul at all, and that means they have no inner side. That would be a totally new challenge to our wisdom. 

As we always believe that even a beast has a soul, only that its soul might be controlled by a demon. 

Will there be any creature in the Universe has no soul at all? 

That is interesting. It brings us back to the reality: That we are humans, and that we have souls. 

And if we do have souls, then we would try to understand ourselves more. 

Interested points are: How is the soul of my best friend? And how is the soul of my enemy? Can you know them or beat them if you never have explored their souls?

What is the significance of the trade war?

9164   What is the significance of the trade war   20180411

Up till this moment, no one can say the coming trade war is real. It might be unreal. The Chinese and the US might find the situation not satisfactory, and they will settle the matter in a not-so-painful approach. Even if it is real, it will not be a big deal. Its simply a redrawn of the trade map. There will be winner and losers, but the total situation will not be very much different.

Put some red beans and blue beans in a bottle, shake it many times, the outcomes are similar.

The significance is in another severe concern:

The two powers are not going together, no matter the trade war is real or unreal.

They had separated each other.

Red beans in one bottle, blue beans another. The path of human is in a V shape crossroad. They are going different directions. And this is a definite trend, it is nothing to do with the outcome of the trade war.

What is the significance then? What will happen if they are going together and what is wrong if they are not going together?

We the people living in 21st century will all be witnesses for this change.

The US is not going to share their wisdom with the Chinese. They will guard all important scientific research results. We can expect they will not accept Chinese students, if situation is getting worse.  

The powers will lose the chance to build a better human world by combining the left-oriented brain and the right-oriented brain. The US will find it much difficult to look for the inner approach in science and politics. And the Chinese will find it difficult to build an ideal future both internally and externally.

There will be less and less wisdom in the future for the separated powers.

Western culture is always excelling in external studies while their counterpart the Chinese excels in a more complicated way of inner approach. It will be an ideal settlement if they can cooperate, but the chances are slim.

The terms of internal, external or left-right approaches are not new. Most of the thinkers in the world knew it quite well. However, it is difficult to bring the countries together in a wilder aspect with a real understanding of the nature of the Universe.

With the quick development of the artificial intelligence, people will doubt if it is the end of the external approach of technology. When you can do almost all the things with a robot, what else is needed.

Man has become redundant.

Yet we still have questions. We need real art and we want spiritual and mind satisfaction. We are eager for a higher level of wisdom to see the future. We wish to know where we are going and why. That is a big deal. Total cooperation of the nations to face the coming difficulties are most welcome.

Who can bring the powers together in the crossroad?
