To realize is to realize, 1.2

For example, when you ask “how to be a polite person”, you become a polite person.

In other words, when you realize that you should be a polite person, that polite person is realized at that moment.

The ultimate self-fulfilling prophecies:

1. free will or not

2. god or no god

3. afterlife or not

4. future spouse exists or not

.

Why self-fulfilling?

1. free will or not

If we knew the exact physical laws and all the data of the present state of the universe, we would be able to predict, with 100% accuracy, the state of the universe at any future moment.

.

In theory, the exact physical laws exist, whether we know them or not. Also, in theory, all the details of the present state of the universe exist, whether we know them or not.

So in theory, there is no free will, because the future is already fixed, by the physical laws.

.

However, even if we knew the exact physical laws, it would be still logically impossible to get all the data of the present state of the whole universe, because it is logically impossible for any observer to observe itself directly. For example, no camera can take a picture of itself directly.

So “in practice”, which is actually “in theory”, there is free will, because logically, no one can predict, with 100% accuracy, your future actions.

大腦物理性損毀不是比喻, 2

權力來源 2.1

.

大多數人相信沒用,苟且偷生,什麼都不做,少數人去做,就真的沒用,而且還要被大多數人背叛出賣。大多數人相信有用,去做一點點,就真的有用。所以有用沒用不是獨立於人的行為的客觀事實,而純粹是人選擇的結果,這是典型的博弈問題。您國命運就是您國人選擇的結果,也就是所謂報應,不能怪任何別人[。]

Cooper : Did it work?

TARS : I think it might have.

Cooper : How do you know?

TARS : Because, the bulk beings are closing the tesseract.

Cooper : Don’t you get it yet, TARS? They’re not *beings*… they’re us! What I’ve been doing for Murph, they’re doing for me, for all of us.

TARS : Cooper, people couldn’t build this.

Cooper : No. No, not yet. But one day. Not you and me, but a people, a civilization that’s evolved beyond the four dimensions we know.

[the tesseract closes around him in a brilliant flash of light]

Cooper : What happens now?

千年往事

這段改編自 2010 年 4 月 10 日的對話。

(安:我們現在以為的知識,一千年後看回來,會發覺很多也是不正確,或者是不全面的。)

那亦都很正常。但是,原則性的東西,而又不牽涉具體細節,如果我們現在的理解正確,就沒有時間性。原則不會隨時間改變,永世正確。

例如我們上次討論,二千多年前所寫的《心經》,之中提及的「色即是空,空即是色」,其實就是想講出「本體」和「現象」的關係。試想想,「本體現象」這組概念和對應的理論,是哲學家康德於一百多年發揚光大的。而二千多年前的《心經》,竟然可以連接到,那就是所謂的「英雄所見略同」。

「色」,就即是「現象」;而「空」,就即是「本體」。

權力來源 1.1

這段改編自 2010 年 4 月 24 日的對話。

假設一位將軍有十位士兵手下。但是,每一位手下的武功都優勝過他。那樣,那位將軍為什麼仍然會有「軍權」,控制到那十個士兵?

「權力」是一個「自我實現預言」(self-fulfilling prophecy)。大家一同覺得「有」,就立刻「有」;大家一同覺得「無」,就立刻「無」。建立權力和摧毀權力的難度在於,要「大家一同」。

那十個士兵中的任何一個,都以為另外的九位同事,會聽命於那位將軍。「如果我不服從將軍,他會命令另外九人拘捕我。任我的武功再好,也敵不過九個人。」而另外的九位同事,亦都會聽命於那位將軍的原因,正正是因為有同樣的想法。

這個人性社會結構,學名為「勢」,是「權力」的來源,可以十分堅固,因為人數越多,要摧毀這個「勢」就越困難,除非發生了一些特殊的情況。
