TED Talks: 透過大貓認識生命

Beverly 和 Dereck Joubert夫婦:透過大貓認識生命

當一頭雄獅被殺死時,整個獅群都被摧毀了。
一頭新來的雄獅會進入到該片領域,接管整個獅群,
然後,當然,首先就會殺死所有的幼獅,可能還會殺死一些保護自己幼崽的母獅。
因此我們大概估算,大概要殺死20到30頭獅子,
才能讓一頭雄獅的頭,掛到某個遙遠地方的牆上。
And you have to know that,
  when a male lion is killed, it completely disrupts the whole pride.
A new male comes into the area and takes over the pride
  and, of course, first of all kills all the cubs
  and possibly some of the females that are defending their cubs.
So we've estimated that between 20 to 30 lions are killed
  when one lion is hanging on a wall somewhere in a far-off place.
這是兩三年前看過的演講,每每接觸這些地球上生物銳減的報導與演講,心情就會莫名的沈重、對這人類世界喪失希望。我們是不是就此自大的將他們消滅殆盡,忽略造物主放在眼前的成功樣本,反而相信人類社會的各種新發展,僅僅憑藉想像力便可以找到捷徑?希望有生之年,能看到有人帶來希望的種子,回報保育成功的成果.....
當我們和自然脫鉤,
當我們從靈性上和這些動物脫鉤時,
我們就失去了希望,
失去了精神上的聯繫,
失去了我們的人格,
而正式這內在於我們的東西,
使我們保持與這個星球的聯繫。
As we de-link ourselves from nature,
  as we de-link ourselves spiritually from these animals, we lose hope.
We lose that spiritual connection, our dignity, that thing within us
  that keeps us connected to the planet.

嘮叨型人物,常常會切到碎碎念模式。
A person with negative thinkings most of the time so that any tiny positive energy would inspire his life with happiness. Life to him seems to be comprehensively meditated but it's always hard to put into practice.
