達爾文之後

不小心查網路時,看到之前曾經在達爾文200紀含時參與過一點的「達爾文之後」戲劇有在網路上,在此記一筆:

當時是擔任生物演化的顧問,和符宏征導演還有一些討論。可惜在片中說明都沒有被提到名字,有點小沮喪。無論如何,看到當年的投入,還是有點懷念。

Are you proud of your country?

I ran across an article on the internet recently. The article is about a statistics of proudness of the people for their country, and the result is is very interesting.

Look at the last country on the list – Taiwan. How sad it is.

你的詩篇

最近網路上流傳了Apple的iPad Air廣告,引用「春風化雨」中所提Walt Whitman的詩句。覺得很不錯,記在這裡給自己。

 

O Me! O Life!

by Walt Whitman

Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,

Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,

Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?

Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,

Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,

Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,

The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
 
Answer.
That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

生命與思想的存在這件事,真是千古迷團。不論是哲學家或是科學家,仔細想下去都無法真切的解析。詩中雖然洋溢著眾人皆醉我獨醒的孤高,但是也有著對生命意義的自省,希望不虛此生,創造自己的詩篇。

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,600 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 60 trips to carry that many people.

London trip

 

 

The family trip to London was great. The kids love it. Well, the most impressed place to them was not the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, or the Buckingham Palace. It’s the Legoland that made the kids most happy.ImageImageImage

 

Nancy visited us at London.
