What hurts me most …. is the complete breakup of friendship ….最痛心係…見到身邊的朋友因為立場不同, 先口角,後Unfriend,繼而反面…

A quote from facebook : (original in Chinese, English version is our own translation) A If you agree , please re-post ( but please don’t take credit for the content )

[中文版]

What hurts me most arises not from site clearance by the police, nor frenzy aggression of protesters, nor casualties, nor statements by Government and the occupy-central-trio in response …..

What hurts me most …. is when friends take opposing sides, leading to heated arguments, cross-sword challenges, ending in complete breakup of friendship ….

I believe we have all witnessed such hurtful experience around us.

True democracy is not restricted to one voice, one party. In the midst of one hundred different voices expressed by one hundred persons, harmony can still be struck.

I long to see “mutual respect” ….
Rather than “inflicting injuries cultural-revolution-style, with verbal abuse of malicious swearing” …..
Rather than “I am not giving way, I don’t care if we are no longer friends” …..
Rather than “withdrawing from the communal group, or dissolving the communal group”.

Among friends and relatives,
There always will be different voices, dissimilar view points ….
Let us learn how to hold onto our own convictions ….
While co-existing with our opponents under one roof.

Please say to your opponent, “It’s OK, I respect you!”
Please say to your opponent, “It’s OK, we are still friends!”
And finally, please wear a smile and shake hands with your opponent.

People of Hong Kong, we are a family ….
Whether we will again split, and tear each other apart ….
Depends on our embracing or otherwise the value of “respect and co-existence”.

最令我痛心既事,唔係警察如何清場,唔係示威者如何激進,唔係有無人受傷,更唔係政府和三子有咩回應…

最痛心係…見到身邊的朋友因為立場不同,
先口角,後Unfriend,繼而反面…

我相信…各位身邊總有發生依類事情。
真正民主,係唔止一把聲音,唔止一個政黨。一百個人有一百種聲音,而又和諧。

我希望見到係””互相尊重””…
而唔係””文革批鬥,粗口互相問候…””
而唔係””我係咁架啦,你unfd啦….”
而唔係””離開群組,解散群組…””

朋友間,親人間,
總會有不同的聲音,意見…
請學識如何維持自身立場…
又可以和對手共處…

請和你的對手説””不緊要,我尊重你!””
請和你的對手説””不緊要,我們仍是朋友!””
最後請和你的對手””笑一笑,握握手。””

香港人,一家人…
會否再分裂,再撕裂…
就看大家識唔識””尊重,共存””

The Formation of Systems 系統之生成

無極Wu ChiThe state beyond differentiation, beyond set theory. It is a reluctant representation by Loazi because it is beyond our words. Maybe it is the same state as Nibbana in the teaching of Buddha, which is also reluctantly named but not describable by any word or thought. He said it is beyond our matter and minds, beyond our reactions, sensations, perceptions and imaginations, but within the awareness of the observer. And is achievable through a set of describable procedures of practice. Therefore, it would be beyond our known universe of space and time.

太極 Taichi – The perception, perspective, theme, thought, incident or system.

太極動而分陰陽 Once Taichi is in action, Yin and yang appears at the same time. – The fundamental holistic point of view of anything in our observable universe. This ability of separate Yin and Yang from the Wu Chi is the Power of organization.

陰陽平衡 Balanced State – A balanced Taichi Yin-Yang system will be stable , efficient and long lasting.

陰陽太過不及 Unbalanced State – Systems can be either too much or too little. These systems are deem to get sick, unstable , inefficient. Finally the system will fall apart and the corresponding Taichi, Yin and Yang will return to Wu Chi once again.

These symbols describe the changes in the Taichi Yin-Yang system for thousands of years. However these symbols are strangers to people like us, who are brought up with western education including theories of logic, mathematics, graphics and states. Therefore we introduce the Good & Evil Yin Yang Chart, geometry, set theory, Venn diagram, graphics and tables to analyze the Taichi Yin-Yang system.

It is a believed that everything need to be balanced. But Traditional Chinese Medicine clearly state how, and have a set of step by step procedures to describe the structures, functions, the balanced state, the possible unbalanced states, their behaviours, the influences that affects the systems and the different classes of proper strategies that can be employed to bring the system back to a healthy balanced state.
