望著路口紅燈後車子徐徐而行!

中午 約朋友在 101 大樓頂層的餐廳吃飯 見腳底道路中,汽車似鴨子在水面上悠緩划行!

再從更高處往下看

Seeing the Voice

I walk on the mountain trail. Suddenly, a car recklessly passes by in front of me! Early in the morning, I smell the breakfast tea on the eighteenth-floor balcony, Seeing cars slowly proceeding after they stop at the traffic lights! At noon, my friends and I have lunch at the restaurant on the top-floor of Taipei 101. I see cars slowly moving on the roads under my feet as if they were ducks leisurely paddling on the water! Then I look down from a higher place…

從太陽系邊緣 從銀河系邊緣..... 這時 我看到了 『我、我的列祖列宗及子孫們』 都在同一時空裡

From the edge of the Solar System, from the edge of the Galactic System… At this moment, I see “myself, my ancestors, and my descendants” existing

那 是我們的原點

當我們從初始分開後;未知、黑暗、恐懼、孤獨,成了與生俱來的 生物宿命!

That is our origin. Since we separated from the initial start, the unknown, darkness, fear, and
