羅時瑋院長北上看朋友我決定到車站會他省時他說學校有中興的希望我則希望東海集中辦好幾系Shantiniketan, Never the twain, 泰戈爾作品和一些因緣泰戈爾談文學...:
Today, more than 6,000 students attend the university, which is now
 known as Visva-Bharati. Despite a drop in academic standards,
its art school is still considered one of the best in the world. 
還希望考慮興辦醫學院道理很簡單各系要有基本紀律譬如說起碼網頁要更新

「蒙田說過,『老』會每天把我們叼走一點,所以,當死亡最後來到,它帶走的只是一個人原來的八分之一。……
 李維氏這一本也提到蒙田:(李維史陀90歲感言, Patric Wilcken實驗室裡的詩人》(Claude Levi-Strauss: The Poet in the laboratory ) 梁永安譯台北:衛城,2012,頁368)
 蒙田說過,「老」會每天把我們叼走一點,所以,當死亡最後來到,它帶走的只是一個人原來的八分之一。但蒙田只活到五十九歲,所以完全不可能知道活到像我這樣極端老邁是什麼樣的感覺。在這個我從不敢想像自己可以到達的壽數裡,我覺得自己像是碎散的全息像(hologram)。

好奇號至少將在火星上待幾年,穿過一個直徑約為155千米的撞擊坑,還要攀上撞擊坑中心一個約高5.5千米的山峰,搜尋早期火星上可能存在過微生物的跡象。但在這段漫長的旅程開始之前,好奇號先在86日降落的雷德伯里着陸點”(Bradbury Landing)周圍試行了幾米。NASA周三表示,這個地點是以雷·布雷德伯里(Ray Bradbury)命名的,他著有《火星紀事》(The Martian Chronicles)及其他一些頗具影響力的科幻小說。布雷德伯里於今年6月去世,周三原本是他92歲生日

 昨晚看
 Moneyball is a 2011 biographical sports drama film directed by Bennett Miller from a screenplay by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. The film is based on Michael Lewis's 2003 book of the same name, an account of the Oakland Athletics baseball team's 2002 season and their general manager Billy Beane's attempts to assemble a competitive team. In the film, Beane (Brad Pitt) and assistant GM Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), faced with the franchise's unfavorable financial situation, take a sophisticated sabermetric approach towards scouting and analyzing players, acquiring"submarine" pitcher Chad Bradford (Casey Bond) and former catcher Scott Hatteberg (Chris Pratt), and winning 20 consecutive games, anAmerican League record.

Lévi-Strauss - "shattered hologram" of aging.

I've been having a go at Jim Holt's popular book  "Why does the world exist? An existential detective story."  After three chapters of fascinating quotes from famous ancient and modern philosophers and scientists I skipped to the epilogue, and found a striking account given by the author of attending a small party at the Collège de France in celebration of the ninetieth birthday of Claude Lévi-Strauss. Lévi-Strauss was asked to give a little speech to the group, and begins with: 
"Montaigne said that aging diminishes us each day in a way that, when death finally arrives, it takes away only a quarter or half the man. But Montaigne only lived to be fifty-nine, so he could have no idea of the extreme old age I find myself in today" - which, he adds, was one of the "most curious surprises of my existence."  He says he feels like a "shattered hologram" that has lost its unity but that still retains an image of the whole self. 
Lévi-Strauss goes on to talk about the "dialogue"  between the eroded self he has become - le moi réel - and the ideal self that coexists with it - le moi métronymique.  The latter, planning ambitious new intellectual projects, says to the former,  "You must continue."  But the former replies, "That's your business - only you can see things whole."  Levi-Strauss then thanks those of us assembled for helping him silence this futile dialogue and allowing his two selves of "coincide" again for a moment - "although," he adds,  "I am well aware that le moi réel will continue to sink toward its ultimate dissolution."
What an incredible description of what we experience as we continually loose our brain cells during aging: a receding shadow of the richness of the world once integrated by their antecedent and larger ensemble. 

The final lines of Holt's epilogue, and the book:

Philosophy, n. A route of many roads leading from nowhere to nothing.
