“God” is your self at the farthest future.

That’s why we are all becoming gods.

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?

[he sees the Endurance on its flight through the wormhole, touches Brand’s hand through the space-time distortion]

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。

Buddha 2

Lessons from the Light, 2

The revelations coming from the light seemed to go on and on, then I asked the light, “Does this mean that humankind will be saved?”

Then, like a trumpet blast with a shower of spiraling lights, the Great Light spoke, saying, “Remember this and never forget; you save, redeem and heal yourself. You always have. You always will. You were created with the power to do so from before the beginning of the world.”

In that instant I realized even more. I realized that WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN SAVED, and we saved ourselves because we were designed to self-correct like the rest of God’s universe. This is what the second coming is about. 

— Mellen-Thomas Benedict

The way to be saved is to realize that

you are already saved.
