懶惰的我久久整理一次email信箱,今天有空看了WJ同學一個月前forward來的動畫 the inner life of the cell,彩色3D的細胞裡好精采阿。這喚起了許多生物課本的回憶,watching it go live實體化以前在平面書本上只能靠想像學來的東西。科技越來越進步,雖然老一輩的我還是以為書本不能被取代,不過說不定以後上生物課都變這樣看3D影片或實境模擬了呢。
 
細胞複雜又精密的運作太神奇了,這一切是怎麼發生的? 在youtube上有一連串"要不是神的存在也不會有這一切" "茄,這一切都是千百億萬年演化來的"諸如此類的討論,不過這些關乎personal beliefs,懶惰的我覺得爭辯這些會累,所以,還是看影片吧:

作業交了,玩耍暫時告一段落,甚至充斥著猛男跟娘炮的300也很有歷史教育意義的看了,這兩天終於開始準備唸書以迎接五月初的考試。
翻出上課筆記,發現我在上社會科學越上越無趣的課堂裡寫了這樣一段字:
 

You can't teach social science, you simply learn it from experience and interactions with other people. 

I realized just recently that I like the "hard' science (i.e., biology, physics, math, law(?)), something you can really learn and take away from a class, something that needs to be discovered.

Social science is about human minds, about intuition and behavior patterns.

Is applying theories onto human/social behavior really meaningful?  There will always be subjective opinions and disagreements, and every argument will be true because it's simply a different approach of looking at one thing.

A thing/phenomenon itself by nature has thousands of different angles.  You can't really interpret one's mind because a person thinks thousands of ideas and thoughts spontaneously, whether consciously or subconsciously.  One can't even accurately interpret his own thinking.  Once a society is formed, the complexity cumulates.  Any analysis or prediction will be way too simplified and undercomprehensive.  So as hard as we make all the efforts to explain the society, it will always change and fall out of expectations.

That is why there's always exceptions, and luck plays a crucial role in social/organizational success.

 

寫的很亂,不過看的出來我當時多麼fed up with it, 居然有力氣寫下這麼一堆字。當時就覺得學校裡的老師同學只會講講講,they're all just talking,然後硬要把一些淺顯的觀察當建構理論套用。很多時候這些所謂理論只適用於一個特定的案子,拿到別的情況下就漏洞百出,更顯得這一切的空談對現實社會是多麼薄弱。好懷念當真相只有一個的世界阿。
 
現在想法沒那麼極端了(因為很久沒上學聽不到那些社會學家高談闊論),雖然我還是天性不好與人爭辯,我覺得每個人都有每個人的喜好和見解,沒什麼是非對錯,也就沒有爭執的必要。不過大家來討論一下也是挺好玩的啦,可以聽聽不同的看法,尤其他們還是有很多值得學習之處,like how to be convincing and such。
 
Anyways, 我要去唸我的科技管理與社會組織了。其實唸社會學也有好處,你只要能夠表達清楚自己的想法,考試的時候你的答案永遠不會是錯的。
