「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

施察溫寧根現出微世界



兒時聽母親講睡前的床邊故事:『大人國』與『小人國』Gulliver's Travels!





上面的”你喉“影片就是:Madurodam 馬德羅丹 微型世界,地點是在荷蘭海牙地區 Scheveningen 的一個旅遊景點。


【維基百科】Madurodam is a miniature city located in Scheveningen, The Hague, in the Netherlands. It is a model of a Dutch town on a 1:25 scale, composed of typical Dutch buildings and landmarks, as are found at various locations in the country.

This major Dutch tourist attraction was built in 1952 and has been visited by tens of millions of visitors ever since. The miniature city was named after George Maduro, a Jewish law student from Curaçao who fought the Nazi occupation forces as a member of the Dutch resistance and died at Dachau concentration camp in 1945.

In 1946 Maduro was posthumously awarded the medal of Knight 4th-class of the Military Order of William, the highest and oldest military decoration in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, for the valor he had demonstrated in the Battle of the Netherlands against German troops. His parents donated the capital to start the Madurodam project.






大少的比較,是一個相對論,甚麽叫大,怎麼叫小,記得我的舊文 Horton and Dr. Seuss,談過一部卡通電影 Horton Hears a WHO,故事說 大笨象 Horton 在森林閑蕩時,聽到一些聲音,他偏找不及,原來聲音是發自一粒漂浮著的『微塵』,在『微塵』上,原來住了另一個『微世界』。


正如 Gulliver 去到小人國,他就是巨人,然後 Gulliver 去到大人國, 他就是小人,這個大小的標準,沒有必然的量度準則,只是人類以自己的局限,相對而論之。


記得很多年前有位朋友,電郵了一套圖畫集,一幅一幅的往下看著,原來前的一幅畫,是後的一幅畫裡中的:畫、書、圖片、相片、窗外遠景 etc etc,如此類推,到了最後一幅,卻是一隻眼睛,眼睛上面的反光,看到是對著上的一幅畫,其中寓意不言而喻!
