重要的是你将什么看的最重要,它们也许比现实更

 
庄周梦蝶抑或蝶梦庄周一点都不重要,重要的是你将什么看的最重要,只要你接受,虚幻与真实又有什么区别呢。

   Dream world or really world?——黑客散记(一)
  
    乡下的孩子总是与潮流无关,《The
Matrix》(黑客帝国)第一部上演于1999年,第二部和第三部上演于2003年。很老的片子,但在2008年一月之前,我一直没有看过也没有动过去看的念头。直到去年的某天,一个讨论集体无意识的帖子引起了我对他的兴趣。点击播放以后,我的眼睛再也无法离开,忘记了时间的流逝。Who
has
time?yes,who——has——time?三部电影看完之后,已经是六个多小时过去,而我大汗淋漓,恍惚在生死之间打了个转儿。
  
    文章本天成,妙手偶得之。
    上天是如此的眷顾Wachowski兄弟,居然将《The
Matrix》赐予他们,这是我看过黑客帝国后的第一个念头,时间是2008年一月的某天。在那之后,就想要动手写点什么,却一直不敢下手。我的语言如此贫瘠,以至于无法表达出我的想法,而我的思想又是如此不自由,以至于很多地方仍无法悟透。
  
  宿命的意义
  Karma’s a word. A way of saying ‘what I am here to do.’
  
  ’Do you believe in fate, Neo?’
  ’No.’
  ’Why not?’
  ’Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my
life.’
    Neo不相信宿命,但是从电影开始到最后,他都没有躲过命运的安排,不要说是他的选择,那不过是Oracle的设计。而Oracle,也不过是一个预设好的程式。
    冥冥之中,总有一种力量在控制着所有的宿命。
  
    在链接Matrix和zion的火车站,Trainman说’I built this place. Down
here I make the rules. Down here I make the threats. Down here, I’m God.
‘是的,如果一个世界是由你建造,这个世界所有的规则由你来制定,那么你就是这个世界的上帝。
    而对于我们生活的世界,我将宿命的决断者归功于‘道’。在两年多前我说“这个世界永远都只有一条路可走。昨天是绝对的,已经发生过的事情是绝对的,还未发生的事情虽然可以有亿万种变化,可是永远只能发生一种变化。无法确定的未来在未来的未来也会变成确定的过去。原来,这个世界,一切皆有主宰……”(笑看红尘——道篇:http://7820914.qzone.qq.com/blog/28
    现在,我还是这么认为。’We’re all here to do what we’re all here
to do.’
  
  ’That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into
bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch.’
   我们何曾逃出过命运的牢笼?
  
  梦境与现实
  ’Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real.
What if you were unable to wake from that dream. How would you know the
difference between the dream world and the real world?’
    庄周一梦,化作蝴蝶,不知周之梦为蝴蝶,又或蝴蝶之梦为周。同样是两年多前,在笑看红尘——析梦(http://7820914.qzone.qq.com/blog/29)中,我写道“将来也许有一天人类会掌握如何完全控制大脑的变化,这个时候不需要消耗任何东西就可以给人消耗所有东西都换不来的享受,将会对人的欲望满足和环境改善的矛盾找到最根本的解决办法,比如,你可以只用控制大脑的变化产生在打猎的幻觉,而且感觉和你真的在打猎是一模一样的。这样不用破坏生态也能享受打猎的乐趣。不过,这样的话,同样可以通过控制大脑的变化控制一个人的思想,很可能会变成比核弹还恐怖的武器……

  
  ’Then you’ll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only
yourself.’
   The
Matrix,无疑完完全全是建立在这样的一种技术基础上。人类的身体在培养钵中出生、成长、为机器世界提供能量,而所有的生活感受都是通过信号刺激大脑完成。Neo睁开眼睛时感到刺痛,那是因为他从来没有真正的使用过眼睛。而他大脑中存在的几十年记忆,同样是未曾真正发生过。
  
  ’welcome to the really world。’Morpheus说。
  但是,什么是真实?
  ’What is real. How do you define real? If you’re talking about what
you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real
is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.’
  
笑看红尘——爱情篇(http://7820914.qzone.qq.com/blog/21)中。我提到“人所认知的世界并不是真正的世界,而是接收到真正的世界给予人的信息之后在思维中进行再加工后的世界。”那,真实究竟是什么?如果只是感觉触觉味觉,Matrix不也同样是真实?如果真实是指事实存在,那被限制在思想牢笼中的我们又何曾真正认识过真实?
  
   既然无所谓真实,那么,忠于自己的感觉吧。
  
  逃避与面对
  ’We have a rule. We never free a mind once it’s reached a certain
age. It’s dangerous, the mind has trouble letting go.’
  
不知道,哪个成年人可以接受自己一直生活在虚幻中,一直生活在牢笼里,自己以为的那些过去并不存在。面对如此的残酷,Neo剧烈的呕吐起来。
  
  
一直记得痕宝的一句话,守护经年的美丽宫殿在瞬间崩塌,那些充斥在心灵深处,所谓的阳光、鲜花、云彩,一切美好的东西,都在那一刹那化作了烟尘。不,我不相信……
   如果你已知道真实,是否仍可以漠然接受虚幻?
  
  ’I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my
mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious.
After nine years, you know what I realize?’
  ’I don’t want to remember nothing. Nothing. You understand? And I
want to be rich. You know, someone important, like an actor.’
  
Cypher显然可以接受虚幻,在明明知道那是虚幻的情况下。是的,如果虚幻是美好,而你拥有改变未来的能力,真实是残酷的,且你无力改变。那么你愿意面对真实还是逃避进虚幻?
  
  醉乡路稳宜频至,香烟、酒精、信仰或者毒品,尘世间有太多逃避的工具。
  
  Oracle: What about the others?
  Architect: What others?
  Oracle: The ones that want out.
  Architect: Obviously, they will be freed.
  
故事的最后,Matrix赋予了人类选择的自由,你可以选择在虚幻世界生存,也可以选择前往真实世界。如果是你,你会如何选择呢?

  • This isn’t real.
  • What is ‘real’? How do you define ‘real’? If you’re talking about what
    you can feel, what you can smell, taste and see.., then ‘real’ is simply
    electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”
  • Your mind makes it real.
  • If you’re killed in the Matrix, you die here?
  • The body cannot live without mind.”

“Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real?
What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the
difference between the dream world and the real world?”

“… Your appearance now is what we call ‘residual self-image. It is the
mental projection of your digital self.

“- What truth?

曾经一度抗拒科幻片,因为它们的“不真实”;而现在明白,它们也许比现实更“真实”

  • What truth?
  • That you are a slave. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage,
    born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison…
    for your mind.”

“Don’t think you are, know you are.”

“- I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my
mouth the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious.,,
Ignorance is bliss.”

  • There is no spoon… Then you’ll see that it is not the spoon that
    bends. It is only yourslef.

“- I thought it wasn’t real.

“-The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. It is the world that
has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
