庄周之魂——赞霍金

作者:心理学家许金声

《庄周之魂》
——赞霍金与“突破摄星”计划,并且有感于他谈论“庄周梦蝶”
对于上帝不愿轻易相信,
卓越头脑纵横宇宙太空。
造化开了一个玩笑平衡,
让其身体限制方寸之中。
轮椅怎能困住不羁灵魂?
非凡意志远去外星畅游!
也许就是转世逍遥庄子,
不然为何如此狂放做梦?

霍金16年4月22日微博:
       Thank you so much for your generous response to my new Weibo page! I was overwhelmed and delighted by your enthusiasm and grateful for the respect you showed me.
        I had an extraordinary week. I visited New York where I met Placido Domingo at the Metropolitan Opera. I am a life long opera fan and it was a great privilege for me to meet one of my musical heroes.
        I was in New York for a serious purpose. With my collaborators Yuri Milner and Mark Zuckerberg, I launched a project to redesign long distance space travel. We propose sending a fleet of light beam powered nanocrafts to our nearest star, Alpha Centauri. This would be a revolution in space travel – the tiny spacecraft would be able to travel fast enough to relay information to us within a life time. We could learn so much about our galaxy – and ultimately ourselves. It is a huge project but we all agree it is time to boldly go. I look forward to telling you more!
      感谢大家对我的微博如此积极的响应!你们的热情让我万分激动和开心。我也很感激你们对我的尊重。我这次的纽约之行圆满地结束了。我在大都会歌剧院见到了普拉西多·多明戈。作为一个铁杆歌剧迷,这次能够见到我的音乐英雄之一,我感到非常荣幸。不过我这次在纽约是来干正经事儿的。我和合作伙伴尤里·米尔纳以及马克·扎克伯格,一同启动了一个全新设计的长距离太空旅行项目。我们提议,通过发射一支舰队的光束,来推动“纳米飞行器”到达离我们最近的半人马座阿尔法星。这可能成为太空旅行的一次革新——一艘微型太空飞船可以实现极速飞行,并且在我们这辈子内将信息传递回来。由此,我们能够更深入地了解我们的星系——最终了解我们自己。虽然工程巨大,但我们都一致决定冒这次险。我期待在今后告诉你们更多消息!

      Thank you for all of your fascinating comments and questions! I appreciate the opportunity to correspond with my friends on Weibo.
        A question from the comments:
'There is a story about an ancient Chinese philosopher, Zhuangzi. Zhuangzi dreamt of becoming a butterfly. And he wondered ifhe was a man who dreamt of being a butterfly or a butterfly that dreamt of being a man. Prof. Hawking, how do we know if we are living in our dreams or reality?”
       Thank you for your question! Zhuangzi dreamt of being a butterfly - perhaps because he was a man who loved freedom. I might dream of the universe and then wonder if the universe dreamt of me. To answer your question how do we know if we are living in our dreams or reality - well, we just don't and perhaps can't! At least not until we start to understand more about consciousness and the universe. We must keep striving for an understanding of the fundamental questions of existence. And then perhaps we will know whether the butterfly - and the universe - are real or just in our dreams. -SH
      谢谢你们大家留下的出彩的评论和问题!我很感激通过这样的机会和微博上的朋友们交流。
评论里的一个问题:
      “中国古代有个哲学家叫庄子。'昔者庄周梦为蝴蝶',梦醒后,庄周不知是他梦为蝴蝶,还是蝴蝶梦为庄周。霍金教授,请问我们如何知道我们是生活在梦里还是真实存在?”
      谢谢你的问题!庄周梦蝶 ——也许是因为他是个热自由的人。换做我的话,我也许会梦到宇宙,然后困惑是否宇宙也梦到了我。来回答你的问题:“我们如何知道我们是生活在梦里还是真实存在?”—— well, 我们不知道,也许也无法知道!这个问题至少要等到我们开始深刻地了解意识和宇宙时才可知。我们必须要孜孜不倦地探索关于存在的基本命题,只有这样,我们也许才会知道蝴蝶(或宇宙)是真实存在,还是只存在于我们的梦里。
