《創世契約 Deed of Genesis》

《創世契約 Deed of Genesis》

D.G. Lampaulus的第四本小說《創世契約 Deed of Genesis》,內容圍繞在兩個平行宇宙的造物主:三位一體的光明神川里堤,以及阿修羅王羅睺,在宇宙創始之初所訂下的契約,進而發展出既懸疑又奇幻的故事。

D.G. Lampaulus's fourth novel, "Deed of Genesis," revolves around the creators of two parallel universes: the Holy Trinity, a triune deity of light, and the Asura King Rahu. The narrative unfolds based on the covenant established by these divine beings at the inception of the universe, giving rise to a suspenseful and fantastical tale.

 

現代科技的過度發展,使得人類開始濫用科技,並且過度追求物質層面,於是令作者思考到關於靈性方面的追求,以及人類整體精神性躍升的問題;而經過Covid-19疫情以及俄烏戰爭的影響,也讓作者感嘆人生的變化無常,以及契約精神的存在與否。我們一直仰賴的法治精神,在大時代的變遷當中是否還存在?國家之間的競爭角逐,為了達到自己的利益甚至不擇手段,那我們認為的普世價值還存在嗎?

The excessive development of modern technology has led humanity to misuse it and excessively pursue materialistic goals. This prompted the author to contemplate the pursuit of spirituality and the overall elevation of human consciousness. The impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war have also left the author reflecting on the unpredictable nature of life and the existence or absence of a spirit of commitment. In the midst of significant societal changes, does the cherished spirit of the rule of law, upon which we heavily rely, still endure? As nations compete and maneuver to achieve their interests, resorting to any means necessary, one may question the persistence of the universal values we once held dear.

 

 

另一個議題就是對於命運的無奈。我們自以為能夠掌握一切,但相反的是存在著許多的無常,使我們不得不依照命運的安排來行動。就像書名《創世契約》,因為有了契約的訂定,就連造物主也無法凡事依照自己的意思行事,有時命運的安排似乎是早已注定。

Another theme revolves around the inevitability of fate. Despite our belief that we can control everything, the reality is that there are many uncertainties, forcing us to act in accordance with the arrangements of fate. Much like the title "Deed of Genesis" suggests, with the establishment of a covenant, even the creators cannot act entirely according to their own will, as at times it seems that the course of destiny is preordained.

 

本書也探討了「等價交易」這個命題。天使是如何墮落成魔鬼的?是利用魔鬼匕首刺向自己的核心,將自己的靈魂出賣給阿修羅而換得的,所以可以說是一種等價交易。但身為天使是多麼美好的存在?竟然會放棄這神聖的地位而墮落,因為即使是天使也有慾望,我們從路西菲爾的心路歷程就能明白,有時我們寧願選擇順從自己的慾望而行事,這對人類而言是很正常的是,所以在我們的心中,永遠有個天使和魔鬼的心理戰。

The book also delves into the theme of "equivalent exchange." How did angels fall and become demons? They utilized the Devil's Dagger to stab their own core, selling their souls to Asura in exchange. It can be considered a form of equivalent exchange. But how splendid is the existence of an angel? To willingly abandon such a sacred status and fall, showcasing that even angels harbor desires. We can understand this through Lucifer's journey, realizing that sometimes we prefer to succumb to our desires, which is quite normal for humanity. Thus, within our hearts, there is always a psychological battle between an angel and a devil.

 

 

天國是個多麼純淨的地方,能保持一塵不染該有多好?但故事中巨獸的登場,破壞了天國的寧靜與安祥。凡事過於完美,終將走向另一個極端,若我們能接受萬物的缺陷,便會察覺在遺憾之中帶著一絲絲的美意。這就是陰陽益損之道,正負能量最後終會維持平衡的狀態,而這也是萬物運作的法則。

How pristine would it be if the heavenly realm could remain untainted? However, the introduction of colossal beasts in the story disrupts the tranquility and serenity of the heavenly kingdom. Perfection in all things may eventually lead to another extreme. If we can embrace the imperfections of all things, we will perceive a subtle beauty within the realm of regrets. This is the way of Yin and Yang, where the interplay of positive and negative energies ultimately finds balance, representing the governing principle of all existence.

 

人體本身就是一個宇宙,我們的身體變化就如同大自然的循環更迭,道理是一脈相通的。如果我們能察覺這一點,就更容易進入靈性的層次,也就不只是活在小我,而是進入大我的狀態,進而達到「天人合一」的境界。我們不但屬於宇宙的一部分,同時我們自身也是一個宇宙,就是萬物的法則。明白這點,我們就能懂得傾聽自己內心的聲音,依據自己內心的決定行事,走出屬於自己的路,這也是作家透過本書所要傳達的意旨之一。

The human body itself is a universe, and the transformations within our bodies mirror the cycles of nature—a universal interconnectedness. If we can perceive this, it becomes easier to enter the realm of spirituality. It goes beyond living in the realm of the self, transitioning into a state of the greater self, ultimately achieving the state of "oneness of heaven and man." Not only are we a part of the universe, but we are also a universe in ourselves, embodying the laws of all things. Understanding this, we can learn to listen to the voice within, act based on our inner decisions, and forge our own path. This is one of the messages the author aims to convey through this book.
