Neo的选择

  有一本书叫作“Sophie's World”,名字取得太妙了,当你知道“Sophie”的真正含义时简直拍案叫绝。翻译成中文名“苏菲的世界”后,“苏菲”一词失去双关性,意味自然而然就消失了。
  书中有一只从魔术师帽子里拉出来的小白兔,人类是寄居在小白兔皮毛深处的微生物。有些人永远待在皮毛深处,在那里怡然自得的过一辈子;而有些人试图沿着兔子的细毛不断往上爬,想要看清全部。向上爬的过程是艰难的,其中有些人掉下去了,但也有人死命抓住兔毛不放,并对那些窝在舒适柔软的兔毛深处的人们大声吼叫。

  有一部电影叫作“The Matrix”,中文名翻译为“黑客帝国”,简直让我作呕,个人感觉这比“The Day After Tomorrow”翻译成“后天”更差劲。
  影片中有个角色-“CYPHER”,就是那个想回到Matrix而背叛的人,我想,他就是在向上爬的过程中自己选择掉下去的人。

  下面是Cypher在饭馆里进餐时与Smith(史密斯)的对话:

CYPHER: You know, I know that this steak doesn't exist. I know when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, do you know what I've realized?
CYPHER: Ignorance is bliss.

  后来,Neo(尼奥)去找MORPHEUS(莫斐斯),MORPHEUS给了他一颗红色的药丸和一颗蓝色的,让他自己作出选择。

MORPHEUS: You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and you believe whatever you want to believe.
MORPHEUS: You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

  最后,Neo选择了红色的药丸。
  亲爱的朋友们,如果换作你,你会选择哪种颜色的呢?

呵呵,当时看《黑客帝国》的时候也考虑过,如果Neo选择的是蓝药丸的话,下面还会怎么演...
路过,随便发表一下感想:)
Blog做得很棒!
