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?

What is the problem with Artificial Intelligence?

9163   What is the problem with Artificial Intelligence 20180409


Artificial Intelligence is mainly left-brained. And robots in the modern world are also left-brain-robots. 

They can use only external and logical method to approach anything. 

Artificial Intelligence can win a chess game. But it cannot guarantee that they can win a war. That is because, a chess game is confined in a calculable situation. But wars are always not calculable. You must use a mind to examine all the situation.

If you go into a super-market, you will find all items are calculable. Therefore, you can do away human staffs in a super-market. And same are  banking and stock markets. Any calculable factor could be counted and managed. We can expect a major shift of the business world soon. You can witness what will happen when most of the engineers and bankers and business accountants lose their job and see how the Government handle the coming problem. 

And people will tell you that is easy. There will not be governments in the future. There will be only huge computers that can handle all the works of a government. 

But that will not be true. Because, to be a government, it needs a "mind" to handle the internal factors as well as other factors. And all internal factors were not calculable. 

The difficult part is medical science. Can you put a patient into a machine and let the machine do all the diagnoses and administrate drugs and do operations? If you walk in a machine hospital, robots will come to greet you and strip your clothes and wash you and put you into machines to fix your problem right away. Your family member can wait at the exit way of the machine to take you or your corpse back, if they still want it. But this is only one-sided imagination. As no robots are total-brainers, they are all left brainers and cannot handle internal matters. And that is a fatal weakness of robots. Machine hospitals will never come true. 

Now you might ask, what is internal and what is external?

Here is an example. You can cut an orange into 4 pieces or even 400 pieces but you are still in the external side of the orange. You can drill a hole in the earth to reach deep into the earth, but you are not in the internal side of the earth. You can open a heart of a patient and you are still in the outside. 

Is there a way to go into the inner realities?

Numeral designs failed. Rockets exploded, air-planes proofed not safe, and cars could not last. For external calculation, people can design anything in the computer. However, every thing on earth is both internal and external. If you can see only one side of the external measures, you can be sure that you cannot have the whole in-side-out picture of the thing. A complete vision is the pathway to excellence. 

Machines can judge human being with his external measure. But the inner part can only be shown for anther human being who can use his mind.  

AI machines are left-brained. 

By the term of left-brain, it meant a logical way to arrange data. And right-brain meant creation and intuition. Human brain functions are complicated, you cannot avoid using left-sided data in the right-brained intuition or creation. There will not be completely single function of any one side. But the thinking pattern of human can be left-oriented or right-oriented. Its good that Artificial Intelligences are all left-brained. If they can use a mind, machines can dominate the earth.

The Flower And The Monkey


 

The monkey was weeping on a tree. He was sad. He was an old monkey. And he just saw his friend left him. His friend was dead. He thought to himself, sooner or later, I will be dead too. He was so sad that his tears were dripping like rain.

 

Suddenly he heard someone under the tree shouted at him: "Hey, stop crying, your tears were bathing me. " It was a little yellow flower. His tears were like pearls on the center of the flower. The monkey got down and examined the flower carefully. He had never seen a flower before. He saw only fruits. And now, he had found the flower very beautiful. The sun was shining on the pearl, and the flower was holding up the pearl.

 

He exclaimed: "How beautiful you are, can I bring you home?"

 

The flower said, "If you like."

 

The monkey put the flower on his ear. They had a happy time for two days.

 

On the third day, the monkey found the flower was dying. The yellow color was gone, it was all pale.

 

The monkey said, "What, aren't you going to die too?"

The flower said, "Yes."

 

The monkey wanted to cry again.

 

The flower said, "We never cry."

 

The monkey said, "Why?"

 

The flower said, "I know I will be in your mind. "

 

They were happy together.

 

The monkey made a song to remember the flower. He would sing the song by every full moon night.

 

People heard the yelling of the monkey, said: "It is full moon again. " But people can never know, whether the monkey was crying or laughing. It was all the same.

The Eating Robot


 

John is not a robot. He is a man working in a factory. The factory rents lots of robots to work. Robots come to work every day, and they will go back to their service center to recharge every night. The worse thing is that the robots use public transport. Public transports are always cheaper. And it was confusing, as the towns people can hardly know which one is robot and which one is not.

 

John is the head of robots. His job is to make the robots work according to orders. And the robots are very much the same look like a man, people nearby always confuse John as a robot. They would punch him or pinch him or molest him from time to time.  John is annoyed.

 

Every day after work, he would go to the nearby pub to drink, and sometimes he would drink overnight, and back to work the next day. The work place is for robots,  there is very little light and not enough fresh air. He is not happy.

 

And he would think: What is the difference between me and the robots. He had tried many ways. He would put on decent clothes and shaved his face. But it makes him more like the robots and brings him more trouble.

 

Then he finds out the difference. Robots do not eat and do not smoke. From then on, he would hang a cigarette on the corner of his lips whenever he goes out. And that makes a difference. He is happy again.

 

Towns people would kindly say hi to him. When he goes into the nearby coffee shop, the waitresses would flirt with him, thinking he is real.

 

One day, when he was inspecting the working lines as usual, he was very angry all in a sudden. He found, among the working line of twenty robots, one of them was smoking, with a cigarette hanging on the robot's mouth.

 

He shouted, "Hey, you, get out!"

 

No one was responding, as they were confused which is the one to take the order.

 

And that made him angrier. He said: "How dare you smoke in my factory!"  He went into the production line to fetch the robot. He wanted to beat the robot and give the robot a lesson.

 

The robot eased his tension with a simple responding line: "Sir, do you know how much I will cost if you break me?"

 

John was stunned as he heard it. He knew it perfectly well it would cost him his annual income if he broke the robot. He was trembling with a highly controlled voice: " Please tell me why are you smoking! "

 

And the robot said, "I need not tell you, it's not in the work orders."

 

John was trying to find something to retort, the robot continued: "It is none of your business and it is only between me and my creator."

 

John went to the pub that night, as he knew he could not sleep peacefully. He would drink for the night to settle his mind.

 

How much would be my cost! And it is easy to count. If a robot costs him his annual income, then a hundred of the god-damn-robots would be his own cost. Though he knew it quite well he cannot work for a hundred years.

 

Thoughts were dangerous.

 

He was in the roof of the two-hundred-stories high factory building now. He wanted to jump. As he could not settle his mind in peace.

 

He looked up at the sky, and thought, "If the robot can have arrangements with their own creator, what about me! And what is my value!"

 

The sky was white and very bright. No answers were coming down yet, though he had been there for three hours.

 

The roof door was quietly opened.

 

Two female robots, with a small tray of drinks and refreshments entered.

 

The first female robot said in an attractive soft voice: "Sir, will you take a seat, we have brought you the old man." As the second female robot arranged the table and drinks, an old man entered the roof top garden.

 

The old man said, "Hello John, we are glad to have your question and I would like to take this opportunity to give you the answer. "

 

John was a little surprised. The old man continued: "You have asked about the value of a human being, and that was a very good start. We would give a raise to anyone who have come up with that question. " It was in this moment, John was happy again. He wanted to know how much more he would earn in the coming months.  But he only said: "Yes?" and looked at the old man.  

 

The old man said simply, "The value is, Know the difference of a man and his creator."

 

John felt puzzled. "What do you mean, Sir?"

 

The old man said with a smile: "Your creator wants you to grow and he has encouraged humans and animals to compete and fight with each other to make progress. That is why you always have wars and fights and you are not happy. Now you humans need to have your own way to grow. Can you try to compete with each other peacefully and not fighting anymore?"

 

John was confused, "What do you mean, Sir?"

 

And the old man said: "that meant wisdom. If you have wisdom, you don't have to ask the creator anymore. "

 

As the old man left, John was deep in his thoughts to think, whether the old man was a human, or just simply another better made robot, or the old man was the creator.

 

And John did have a raise next month. He was happy.

“Those are only beggars….”


 

The words of the swan hurt the duckling accidentally.

 

The duckling could have never known, this words were so powerful and could bring her from heaven to hell all in a sudden. "Wow, am I not a beggar?" And she had hugged her a moment ago. "Can a beggar accompany you to search for a prince?"

 

When the ugly duckling was sunk into her thoughts, she did not notice the swan had stood up and spread her wings. She was on air.

 

Misery and despair was like a cloud in her head. "I never was a beggar and never will be." She murmured to herself and she saw the beautiful swan was already on top of her and was trying to address something to her. It seemed the swan was saying goodbye.

 

She flapped her wings to chase the swan and found they were too short to fly.  She could only stumble a few steps and felt. The swan tried to come down again.

 

The duckling heard the noise of a string. A little boat had been closing in and a man was on the boat. He was aiming the swan with an arrow.

 

"Oh no, no." The duckling tried to warn the swan. But the swan did not see the boat. She only saw the duckling and was spiraling lower. The bow was on its full strength now and was about to shoot to the swan. The duckling jumped and made a loud noise to splash the water. The arrow missed the swan. The man turned his head and saw the duckling. He put on another arrow and this time, he aimed at the duckling and shot a second arrow. The duckling ducked down and was just in time to sink deeper to avoid the arrow. The arrow hit the grass and produced a loud noise.

The duckling swam deep and hid behind a group of weeds.

 

She saw the boat was not coming near and was going to another direction and she was almost collapsed as she had used up all her strength.

 

She found a piece of dry land and felt into a sleep. As she was opening her eyes again, she heard the swan was next to her. "Oh, I thought you were dead, you have been sleeping for a long time."

 

"It was not so easy to die for me." The duckling was happy again.

 

"Thanks for saving my life." And it was the first time, the swan looked deeply into the eyes of the duckling.

 

"Aren't you going to search the prince?

 

"Oh no, never. I had found one. "

 

"What!"

 

"You are the prince. You are so beautiful. "

 

The duckling was shocked to hear that. Never in her life had she heard someone commented at her in such a way.

 

"Am I a prince? Not a beggar? You must be joking. "

 

"Yes, you are a prince, and there must be a lot of your kind in this world."

Is there any prince on earth?

 

The old man turned his head and said, "Do you really want to know?"

 

The Duckling said earnestly, "Yes, please tell me. Where is she going?"

 

"You won't believe it even if I told you."

 

The Duckling only looked at the old man with her very sad eyes. She didn't want to explain how honest she was.

 

The old man cannot refuse and said:" She will tell you herself."

"What?" the Duckling cannot believe what she had heard.

 

Then she saw the grass under the swan moved a little. She saw the swan stretched her legs. She observed that the swan was opening her eyes.

 

"Wow", she jumped forward and hugged the swan tightly, "You are not going, do you!"

 

The swan made a big yawn like she had been sleeping for a long while.

 

The Duckling wanted to ask her where she had been. But now she was so happy that she had forgotten the question. And she had a far more important issue at her mind now.

 

The Duckling said, "Can I go with you?"

 

"Go with me?" the swan exclaimed. "Go where?"

 

"I wish to go to search the prince with you together. " She added, "No matter how far it will be."

 

"There is no prince on earth. Those are only beggars. Don't waste your effort. "

 

"No, there is, there are a lot of them!" She turned to see the old man, hoping the old man can help.

 

And the old man didn't give any answer. He just smiled.

The Dying Swan


 

Now the ugly duckling was freed from her old thoughts. She would like to swim to the same place to see the old man again.

 

She didn't see the old man for a long time.

 

Suddenly she saw something moving in the swamp. There was a very large white swan. The duckling wanted to hide herself, but the swan saw her already. Then the duckling went a little closer. She was inspired by the old man and was fearless.

 

The white swan struggled to turn herself, she tried to flap her wings. But she could only make an unpleasant noise.

 

The ugly duckling wondered what had happened to her. The image of a beautifully dancing swan was always her dream. She wished the swan could dance again. The ugly duckling went a step further and asked a wrong question: "Where is your prince?"

 

The swan said weakly, "I have no prince. I have searched for my whole life, but there was none." The duckling dared not ask why again. Then the duckling saw she was closing her eyes. "Sorry, are you sleeping?" It was a long pause, then the swan said again, "No, I am going."

 

For a very long time, the swan was motionless. But the ugly duckling still wanted to ask: "Where are you going?"

 

It was in this moment the duckling saw the old man. The old man told her:" She is dead."

 

The duckling found something strange in the air. And she did feel something. In such moments, there would be no ugly and pretty, noble and humble. She had forgotten that she was a beggar, she wanted to hug the noble swan. But one question remained in her mind. She turned to the old man: "Where is she going?"

 

The old man just turned his head and said, "Do you really want to know?"

Ugly Coming


The ugly duckling was very frustrated when she finally found out that she was forever a duck and never had anybody said she was a swan.

And she was more than a duck. She was a crippled lame duck. She was bald, she had no hair on her head, and her wings were short, she could never fly.

One day, the swans came again. They were the princesses of the lake. Everybody was silent with respect when they past elegantly.

The ugly duckling tried to swim closer to the swans. The last of the princesses splashed her wings to go faster to avoid the beggar. Water hit the duckling mercilessly.

She cried desperately: glee glee glee………

She could never have understood why she was not a swan.

An old man happened walking nearby and saw the scene. He knew the question, and he had tried to explain it.

He had got so many of the theories in his throat, but now, he could say nothing, he could only say: Hello, glee!

The duckling looked and saw him, thinking that he might be the prince, the duckling swam closer.

And indeed, he was the prince and got magic. The duckling gazed at him for two minutes and understood it all.

She knew now she was a true duckling and it was natural. It was very very natural. She was happy. She was happy so suddenly, she could not stop laughing.

Now her mother had called from a distance. “Ugly, Ugly, where are you!”

She made a somersault turn and answered happily: “Coming, coming, Ugly coming!”

Seeing these kinds of basics of the Universe and be happy about it, is the very beginning of everything.

A Faithul Bee



The bee was faithful, she had no second thought.

One day, she entered a small farm house accidentally. There was only one closed window, and the window was made of glass.

The bee thought to herself, brightness is the only way out. So she flied directly to the glass and crushed her head.  She tried the second time, and third, and fourth.

Then she saw a fly. The bee was born with a fragrance, she never talk to flies who were born in a filthy ditch.

The fly was always flying in a blind way. There was no formula in his brain. He didn’t know what is brightness. He just kept trying. When he found the bright window was not an exit, he simply changed direction and was gone.

When the bee saw him flying directly into the dark, the bee, though very weak and painful, cursed arrogantly: Stupid!

The Firefly



A monk told the firefly, “Its useless to burn yourself here. Do you want to kindle a fire and burn the whole Mountain of the Universe? You will never succeed.”

The firefly wept for a whole night.

A passer by asked the firefly, “Why are you not burning? Its so dark. “

The firefly stopped crying and start burning again. He thought to himself, “I am not going to destroy  anything, I wish only to add a little light to it.”

On what conditions will China become leader of the world in the next 50 years?

9164  On what conditions will China become leader of the world in the next 50 years?   20180320


There will be two conditions only.

1. Growth. China must have a complete growth at all fields. They need to have new mathmatics, new physics, new medical sciences. They must have best universities in the world.  The term “new” needs to be define here. It meant new formats for most of the older sciences. For example if they have invented a new kind of mathematics that do not use numbers, the visions of the world would be totally different.  If the Chinese acquired new formats for knowledge, they will produce products non-resistable to the world market. They will be really rich then. For example, TV had been a non-resistable product. By selling TVs, some countries did won big markets. Can the Chinese produce some future dream products for the hungary mankind? That would be a landmark achievement for them.

2. Wisdom.   China needs to have wisdom to know the secrets of the Universe. They need to  create an really ideal country for all to admire. The old wisdom of the world was consisted in a certain kind of philosophies and religions. Now if the new era did have come, the Chinese must tell the whole world, what is the true idea about living on the earth. It meant China must have new philosophers. China has a great tradition of old wisdom. May be they can turn out the very best from their ancients for the human kind. People in the whole world will admire China then. Because China has already built the  idealistic republic like Plato dreamed about.

How many years will the  Chinese need to accomplish the dream? Will the heavens allow them 50 years? As some people had suggested, there will be a total peril for the human race in two hundred years. 50 years is very basic and very urgent time, for China and for us all.

My computer was recovered

It had been dead for four days. It died very suddenly, like being shot by a long-range rifle. This morning I tried to turn it on. It  came back to life. I could not know what had happened. May be that was only a temporary collapse of the batteries, or may be that was a time-bomb-virus with a timer in it. It was almost 96 hours for the recover. It made me think, we the end users of computers are a group of weakest people who do not know the modern technology of the computer science or even the AI. We are not armed or protected. We can only suffer and being beaten.
(I brought it to two repair shops the day before, they asked for a repair fee for half the cost of the computer itself. I didn't let them do it. )

Thinking habit of Steven Hawking



He knew only how to calculate external things. He didn't know that God is an inner strength within us and the strength is also in the universe. God is inner. God is a spirit and the spirit has a will. We have a will and we can see that God has a will too. Hawking could not calculate inner things, so he denied it. To search externally is Western experiences only.

Have the American intellectuals been back?


9163 Have the American intellectuals been back 20180318


I saw a miracle when I saw the American Ballet Theatre performed the Swan Lake in Singapore the day before.

I saw the English Royal ballet Swan Lake (by Anthony Dowell and Natalia Makarova) many years ago and was enlightened since.

 It was an original Marius Petipa version and that was important. In the final act, the prince and princess used their own death to kill the devil. And the devil was killed.

However, I was very disappointed afterwards. Numerous other versions had appeared and ALL of them avoided the scene.

They dared not to use the death of the prince to finish the act. 

They had been trying hard not to give the impression of suicide for love like the Romeo and Juliet story.

And for this reason, the real meaning of life was not presented for so many years, until the ABT with their artistic director KEVIN MCKENZIE had finally found the meaning of life again:

Life is for dedication. Only with a dedicated life can people found love and wisdom and improvement.

The American intellectuals had not been sleeping. They are back here. I was so happy about it. Though I was in a rather annoyed  feeling in Singapore for I had brought with me a cheap and light weight Acer computer. Some external virus had suddenly killed my computer, like a long range rifle.

Now I am using my mobile to type all these for you.

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? They are my soul, where are they?"  The old man said, "You know where they are, do you want them back?" The candle shake his head at once.

The smiling orchid



She was always smiling. Poets wrote poems for her. Sentimental people smile together with her. She was happy because she felt happy. Birds sung around her: "how awful, how awful." Yet she was still smiling. She didn't know where she was from, she didn't know what she will do.

Two seeds



One seed was proud of himself: “I was from the claws of a honey bee. I was born with fragrance.” The other seed said: “I was from the excrement of a monkey.”  They despised each other.  The old man said:  "They didn’t know where they were from. They didn’t know what they will do."

Are we different?



We seem to be different to each other, yet we are same.  It is because, we are in a group.  Wise leaders and wise thinkers would see things as a group. Time and space are meaningless to them.

Seeds
When Budda picked up a handful of seeds and throw away, the seeds fell upon different places. Some of them fell upon deserts, some in hills, only a few could reach a good fertilized field. And that was called “fate” since.
