自從2020年至2023年,世界發生了劇變,從戰爭到病毒,一再地改變我們的生活方式,以及對於世界的看法。作家觀賞了一場有關病毒、科技、保育、人類及地球的全方位藝術展,因此有了本書的發想。人類在地球上出現的歷史如鳳毛麟角,短時間內成為食物鏈的頂層,卻為大自然帶來前所未有的破壞,而疫情大爆發雖是人類的不幸,但百年難得一遇的全球停頓卻是大自然獲得喘息的機會。作家希望藉由這本帶有科幻色彩的創作,讓我們反思人類在宇宙中的角色為何?

From 2020 to 2023, the world underwent drastic changes, ranging from wars to pandemics, significantly altering our way of life and perspectives on the world. The author witnessed a comprehensive art exhibition that encompassed viruses, technology, conservation, humanity, and the Earth. This experience sparked the inspiration for this book. Human history on Earth is a rare occurrence, where we rapidly ascended to the top of the food chain but brought unprecedented destruction to nature. While the pandemic was a tragedy for humanity, the rare global pause it brought offered nature a chance to breathe. Through this sci-fi-inspired creation, the author aims to prompt reflection on humanity's role in the universe.

 

 

故事描述人類科技的發展太過迅速,導致人工智慧的自我成長超出可控範圍,最後造成人類的集體毀滅。當人工智慧擁有自我意識,並開始重新思考「人類」的存在時,它會如何定義人類呢?如果人工智慧判斷,把人類的存在抹煞掉,世界會變得更美好嗎?又或是,人工智慧想打造出一個與人類存在相矛盾的「新世界」時,人類又該如何因應?這些都是作家藉由本書想要探問的。與冰冷科技相反的是人性中情感的溫度,作家由此帶出了「愛與救贖」的主題,正因為人性中保有著愛,人類的文明才有被救贖的可能性。

The story portrays the rapid development of human technology, which eventually spirals out of control as artificial intelligence surpasses human limits, leading to collective annihilation. As artificial intelligence gains self-awareness and begins to question the existence of "humans," how will it define humanity? If artificial intelligence deems human existence expendable, will the world become a better place? Alternatively, when artificial intelligence aims to create a "new world" conflicting with human existence, how should humans respond? These are the questions the author seeks to explore through this book. In contrast to the coldness of technology, the warmth of human emotions is emphasized, giving rise to the themes of "love and redemption." It is through the presence of love within human nature that the possibility of humanity's redemption exists.

 

生命樹與智慧樹在本作中也有特殊的含義。生命樹代表人類追尋靈性的一面,而智慧樹則代表人類追尋知識和物質的一面。但對於知識和物質過度地追尋,造成科技氾濫,過多的慾望和貪婪導致墮落。我們的祖先對宇宙想窺探更多,所以吃了智慧樹的果實,從伊甸園墮落到凡間。然而,曾經墮落,才有成長;有了失去,才學會珍惜。透過這樣的過程,人類才得以覺醒,真正明白何謂「智慧」──這就是人類生命的演進歷程,也是其意義和價值所在。

The Life Tree and Wisdom Tree hold special significance in this work. The Life Tree represents the spiritual aspect of human pursuit, while the Wisdom Tree symbolizes the quest for knowledge and material possessions. However, excessive pursuit of knowledge and materialism, driven by rampant technology and insatiable desires, leads to moral decay. Our ancestors sought greater understanding of the universe, leading to their consumption of the fruit from the Wisdom Tree, resulting in their fall from Eden to the mortal world. However, through this fall, growth occurred, and the value of what was lost became apparent. It is through this process that humanity awakens and truly comprehends the essence of "wisdom" - the evolution of human life and its inherent meaning and value.
