最近有滿多人來回應一篇文章,其實你我都知道,一個人會選擇什麼樣的文章來看,代表那個人必然對那有興趣,或者他遭遇到,感覺到,我發現很多人自己都還不知道.

那既然是如此,何不大方的講一下感想呢?
我看不懂英文,不過大家都是留了金玉良言,讓我備感.......備...感...奇妙!
總之謝謝了,但真的很可惜.我目前很清醒的困惑著,我有我的目的.我也"知道"我選擇的方向和做法是正確的.
大家的回應讓我有點失落和驚訝,雖然我也明白,我們都各自的活在自己的角度中,因此我們每個人都看出一個不同的世界,於是,這些回應都是鼓勵的話語.或是智慧的名言佳句.我在想,你或許也可應該認識一下自己,愛愛自己,鼓勵自己.等到你會愛自己時,其實大家也就會相親相愛世界和平一起去天國了.好嗎?
部落格很有意思,將來每個人,也都會有一個或數個部落格,而這些部落格,就是我們自己,有的人用心的經營,有的人用心的想紅,有的人用心的拚人次,幫個忙.大陸那裡紅一點的,一天就有數十萬人次在看了.
過去,經營一個瀏覽人次很多的網站並不容易,還要到處拉攏一些網站,愈紅的愈好,還要很認真的複制文章,還要到處去寒喧,過去要紅真的難,就好像過去的電視電影男女主角,一紅就是紅十年二十年,現在呢?打從偶像劇開始,出了多少紅偶像呢?紅了,然後呢?最後偶像真的是一堆堆,多到數不清了.
現在的部落格也是一樣,你想吸引廣告,很難,你想超人氣,很簡單,只需要去最熱門的網站,把文章都拉下來就可以了,還有程式很方便,一鍵就能轉移文章.等你PO了很多很多時,人家也有可能來跟你寒喧打關係,做友情聯結,大家互相衝人次..
久而久之,你也會他也會大家都會,於是大家關係拉來拉去,大家都變得很紅,可是,到底是在紅什麼呢?當大家都紅的時候,也就沒有什麼特別的了,然而這是一個進程,當大家這麼做的時候,回頭猛一發現,原來我們大家的部落格,居然只有名字不一樣,和自己的照片不一樣而己,站內的文章拉來拉去最後都拉得一樣多.也都一樣.於是,就融合了..^^?
只是,融合有二種,我不願看到這一種.
我們的部落格,多少都會改變人的思想,而我們在看別人時,也會吸收到別人的觀念和想法,因此部落格的存在,是相當有意義的,人體的所有都是由元素所組成,你即便不講,光是用想的,你的記億和想法,也會傳達出去,因為我們體內排出的細菌和腦波,都一直在動作.我們的身上有數不清的毛細孔,這些孔就是通道.
你可以試著摳看看身上有沒有污垢,通常在磁場強或是月圓時,也就是令人暴躁或是煩悶時,我們的傳輸動作會加速,污垢會較多.即便你一整天都沒有出門.
總之就是這樣了,以下是中英對照的金玉良言,注意囉,雖然我不懂英文,但我知道,英文最少都有二種意思的,所以如果你對英文有不同的認識,請記得告訴我,比如說,台灣常把英文翻成不恰當的形容,而糟到抨擊,但是,翻譯的人也可都是專家,居然會被大家捉包?大家有沒有想過,是自己英文用錯的,或者,你有沒有想過,你用的英文是對的,別人用的英文也是對的.而插別在於,你堅持現在的英文意思和用法,卻忽略了一開始的英文意思,並且堅持那是錯的.這就像飲水忘了思源,又像現代人,愈來愈以自我自大為中心,似乎前無古人,後也不會有來者,唯我獨尊,沒人爭瘋的感覺..
打槍了啦....時代進入過去,現在,未來同時跑的交錯情節,有空看看這個世界,和你原本的世界,真的很不一樣.你過去所學到的,所聽到的知識,智慧,我也學過,也聽過,而新的世界,真的和你有關.你會在某個時間,全部吸收,若你不去接觸,到時候你就彷彿進入前世今生了...^^
前世今生是什麼呢?讓我講講看,那就是,別人的記憶而己啦.......
因為,我們人體細胞都帶有記憶,當細胞被更新時,排出體外的,會被傳送出去,那沒有時間空間的束縛,也就是說它在世界的任何一個角落,再與能夠相氣合的個體相連接,於是,那個人就有了你的記憶,然而,相連之後,就好像一道門一樣,通常需要鎖才能夠解開封印,比如催眠之類的..你如果不相信就算了,以後科學家會告訴你的...或者你也可想想科學方面的,比如你看看電腦的連線,傳入多少輸出多少,再看看電腦的垃圾筒想想宇宙的黑洞,或者看看量子力學,最簡單有力的證據就是,我們的細胞平常二年全部換新,其實,我們二年就換了一個人,而排出去的細胞,別人一呼吸就吸進去了.所以,比如名言說,近豬者豬.近墨者黑.或是說二個人有默契,有心電感應,感染到氣氛,或是習慣..都是因為這個和腦波的無線傳輸的影響.
當然了,不可能每個人都是有網路線的,也不會是每個人都用無線的,因為有的喜歡不連線,打電動做做照片也是有的,只是,這是一個大環境..你要如何出污泥而不染呢?

費話真多,我自己打槍,以下是取自...http://blog.sina.com.tw/yanhui/article.php?pbgid=21206&entryid=574749
