The documentary screening about the story of Zhai Yongming at the White Nights Bookstore in Chendu was a captivating sight to behold. It was a story of twenty years, poetry, and bohemian lifestyle; seemingly desolate noun combinations that brought about such vibrant colors to the 1980s. She was playing a creative game with her poet friends, after all. Those drunken, rowdy nights were definitely not dreary. The documentary hinted that she was first and foremost a fun person, hence, everyone was drawn to the White Nights bookstore. Fun people were what the universe needed.
Flashbacks from the past, specifically experiences from high school, felt as if scores were a heavy stone hanging over one's head. In the office, one elbowing and pushing each other just to catch a glimpse of a few top rankings and scores.
Meanwhile, there was a contentious debate going on about the meaning of the words 'sword' and 'qi.' For humans, language is primarily an acknowledged code gained through learning, which represents specific things or feelings, rather than an instinctive response. These infinite different concepts represented by linguistic symbols, and the various combinations of different ideas formed through grammar rules and structures, are essential characteristics of human language, distinguishing it from primitive communication. Turing believed that there was no essential difference between how the brain and the computer express thoughts via language.
Today, most of the time went into troubleshooting a problem that every possible solution seemed to evade. It was as if the day went by without progress. ZetaChain's Galxe mission was released yesterday, yet the NFTs were still out of grasp.
These days, even going to the mall seemed like a luxury. It seems like the stricter the pandemic guidelines, the more confusion it causes. It's endless.
In the meantime, there was an ongoing trend that indicated it was necessary to find contemporary inspiration and enlightenment from traditional sources, such as Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, in Maoist governance. Free liberalism and cultural conservatism both tried to build new universalism based on the Maoist route. The disputes and internal contradictions among various Maoist thought trends in contemporary China were far greater than the integration and coordination of values. Nevertheless, the Beijing Winter Olympics offered a universal, world-renowned vision, from "me" to "us," from Maoist China to the rest of the world. It clumsily indicated the awakening of Maoist thought in a new, universalistic world. The integration of Eastern aesthetics and Western science during the Beijing Winter Olympics was a testament to universalism's influence.
During this period, there was also writing on public accounts, Telegram, and Matters, but to no avail. So I would like to archive this. We all have a limited amount of time, attention, fury, and sadness, and these experiences are often shared, so when the war is divided, the Iron Chain Lady will indeed become less common. Additionally, people naturally shift away from the empathy they share as they realize that they are powerless. This seems to be human nature, and it's not a criticism; it's a demonstration of how it manifests itself under "high pressure." Under a better social system, human nature will display other characteristics.
Today is probably an appropriate time to start forgetting on my behalf.
