末日随想

今天是公元2012年12月20日,明天就是玛雅人预言的世界末日,如果玛雅人靠谱的话,大家都将看不到明天的日出了……

以上只是玩笑,我从不相信世界末日这种伪科学。不过虽然明天不会是世界的终结,但死亡却是我们共同的终点,没有人逃得过。对于每个人来说,旦夕祸福谁也说不准,明天和意外不知道谁会先来。在网络上充斥着各种末日言论的情况下,我又不禁去思考活着的意义这个永远没有答案的问题。如果我明天就会死去,我这一生是否过得有意义?人活一生又是为了什么?不同的人有不同的答案:

  • 人活着就是为了改变世界。
  • 为了让这个世界因为有我的存在而有一点点不同。
  • 为了解放全人类。
  • 生就是一个等待死亡的过程。
  • 为了思考这个问题。
  • 为了得到别人的认可,为了名垂青史。
  • 为了成功,为了实现自己的价值。
  • 为了实现梦想。
  • 为了追寻真理
  • 人生就是修行。(佛教徒?)
  • 为了赎罪。(基督徒?)
  • 为了结婚生子,传宗接代,老婆孩子热炕头。
  • 为了享受,品山珍海味,穿绫罗绸缎,享鱼水之欢。
  • 享受给别人创造价值的过程,也享受别人给自己创造价值的过程。
  • 马斯洛的需求层次论:生理需求->安全需求->社交需求->尊重需求->自我实现需求。
  • 为了寻找自由。
  • 为了追求幸福和快乐。
  • 为了责任,为了家人。
  • 为了体验与经历,为了爱与被爱。
  • ……

这个问题即使到世界末日也不会有答案,与其讨论这个问题,不如顺其自然,该干嘛干嘛。每个人降生到这个世界都是偶然,努力活下去,不枉费这一生就是了。如果下一秒就是世界末日,你此刻最留恋什么,又最后悔什么,我想,这大概就是我活着的意义。

整理电脑突然发现了我以前保存的一首小诗:

 As I Walked Out One Evening
   ——W. H. Auden.
  As I walked out one evening
   Walking down Bristol Street,
  The crowds upon the pavement
   Were fields of harvest wheat.
  And down by the brimming river
   I heard a lover sing
  Under an arch of the railway:
   "Love has no ending.
  
  "I'll love you, dear, I'll love you
   Till China and Africa meet,
  And the river jumps over the mountain
   And the salmon sing in the street,
  
  "I'll love you till the ocean
   Is folded and hung up to dry
  And the seven stars go squawking
   Like geese about the sky.
  
  "The years shall run like rabbits,
   For in my arms I hold
  The Flower of the Ages,
   And the first love of the world."
  But all the clocks in the city
   Began to whirr and chime:
  "O let not Time deceive you,
   You cannot conquer Time.
  
  "In the burrows of the Nightmare
   Where Justice naked is,
  Time watches from the shadow
   And coughs when you would kiss.
  
  "In headaches and in worry
   Vaguely life leaks away,
  And Time will have his fancy
   To-morrow or to-day.
  
  "Into many a green valley
   Drifts the appalling snow;
  Time breaks the threaded dances
   And the diver's brilliant bow.
  
  "O plunge your hands in water,
   Plunge them in up to the wrist;
  Stare, stare in the basin
   And wonder what you've missed.
  
  "The glacier knocks in the cupboard,
   The desert sighs in the bed,
  And the crack in the tea-cup opens
   A lane to the land of the dead.
  
  "Where the beggars raffle the banknotes
   And the Giant is enchanting to Jack,
  And the Lily-white Boy is a Roarer,
   And Jill goes down on her back.
  
  "O look, look in the mirror,
   O look in your distress;
  Life remains a blessing
   Although you cannot bless.
  
  "O stand, stand at the window
   As the tears scald and start;
  You shall love your crooked neighbour
   With your crooked heart."
  
  It was late, late in the evening,
   The lovers they were gone;
  The clocks had ceased their chiming,
   And the deep river ran on. 

P.S. 前段时间一直忙着找工作,服务器又换了IP,所以好长时间没上博客了。如果明天就是世界末日,这可能就是我的最后一篇博文了(有点不吉利的感觉,如果在影视作品中说这句话的话我肯定就挂了),O(∩_∩)O~
