黑暗深淵的力量很強大。人或多或少都有陷入情緒漩渦的時候,而且一旦陷入就無可自拔,必定得費一番工夫才能抽離極端狀態。一種無以名狀的強烈情緒燒出一把火,以燎原之勢蔓延開來,你無法阻止它,只能任憑無名火在四處流竄。

The power of the dark abyss is very powerful. There are times when people fall into emotional whirlpools, and once they fall into it, they cannot extricate themselves. It must take some effort to get out of the extreme state. An indescribable intense emotion burns and spreads like a prairie fire. You cannot stop it but only watch it extended around.

 

「當你凝視深淵時,深淵也凝視著你。」這是德國哲學家尼采的名言金句。黑暗的深淵不會被動等著你來,它會主動找上你,而當你被迷惑了,就順勢把你拉下萬丈之深,從此無法逃脫出它的魔掌。這致命的吸引力源自人的瘋狂,黑暗的力量特別喜歡瘋狂的執著,執念越深,這個吸引力也就越加牢固,終將被它完全操控,不得脫身。於是深淵變成了黑洞一般,它會吸附各種負面情緒,連帶也把你整個絆住,無法動彈。

''When you look long into an abyss, the abyss looks into you.'' This is the famous saying of the German philosopher Nietzsche. The dark abyss will not passively wait for you, it will actively find you. When you are bewitched by it, it will pull you down to the depths, and you will never escape its clutches. This fatal attraction comes from people's madness. Crazy persistence attracts the dark power especially. The deeper the obsession, the stronger the attraction will be. You will eventually be completely controlled by it and cannot escape. So the abyss becomes like a black hole, it will absorb all kinds of negative emotions, and will also stumble you and make you unable to move.

 

一切都源自於無止盡的慾望。當慾望無窮,深淵的無底洞也會不斷地吸收能量。有些慾望較強的人,對於自己喜好的東西會用盡一切手段取得,特別是關於權勢、金錢和名利,這些都和強烈的慾望有關。為何世人總是汲汲營營想獲得這些虛有其表的假象呢?恐怕淡泊名利的人也總是想不透吧。因為慾望源自人性最深處的深淵。

Everything comes from endless desire. When the desire is endless, the bottomless of the abyss will continue to absorb energy. People with strong desires use all means to obtain what they like, especially power, money and fame, which are all related to strong desires. Why does the world always go to great lengths to obtain these false appearances? I am afraid that people who are indifferent to fame and fortune always cannot figure it out. Because desire comes from the deepest abyss of human nature.

 

路西法之所以會被神打入地獄,是因為她太貪戀權力,她嫉妒神總攬大權,於是想挑戰祂的權力。過度的慾望令她著迷大權,陷入瘋狂的她再也忍受不住,不甘屈居於下位,公然質疑神的地位。對自我信念的執著使她陷入了深淵的黑洞,出不了情緒的漩渦而無法看清,一種隱形的迷障罩住了她。再往前一步就無可回天,只可惜最終她還是踏出去了。

The reason why Lucifer was put in hell by God was that she was too greedy for power. She was jealous of God having overall authority, that's why she wanted to challenge his power. Excessive desire makes her fascinated by power, and she can no longer bear the madness. The obsession with self-belief made her fall into the abyss, unable to get out of the whirlpool of emotions and see clearly, there is an invisible barrier covering her. There was no turning back if one step forward, but unfortunately, she still stepped out in the end.

 

每個人都想要證明自己的信念,這原本是我們文化所鼓勵的價值,可是一旦路走偏了、岔出去了,就可能落入黑暗的深淵中而不自知。它在不知不覺中引誘你走向它,當它得逞時你已進入迷障之中,接著就深陷泥沼而動彈不得。你的意識還是追著自己的信念,極欲證明它的正確性,殊不知周圍的環境已起了變化,你已掉入深淵的黑洞中,而從頭到尾未曾察覺。

Everyone wants to prove their beliefs, which is originally a value encouraged by our culture, but once the road leads you astray and diverges, you may fall into the dark abyss without knowing it. It lures you towards it unknowingly, and when succeeded, you are in a daze and stuck in a quagmire that is unable to move. Your consciousness is still believing in your own belief, desperate to prove its correctness. But what you don’t know is that the surrounding environment has already changed, and you have fallen into the black abyss without noticing.

 

不計任何代價的結果,正是所謂的瘋狂,那黑暗深淵最感興趣的,如黑洞般吸取它的養分。瘋狂著迷於某種事物,現在聽來格外駭人,墮落、沉淪只是一種美化的詞彙,真正墜入地獄的樣貌,沒有人真正看過,因為墮落之人在那裡也從沒回到過人間。最終到了萬劫不復的地步,你運用各種手段也挽回不了的局面。

The result you get at all costs is the so-called madness that interests the abyss to absorb its nutrients just like a black hole. Being madness with something sounds especially terrifying, but the words ‘’falling’’ and ‘’sinking’’ are also being glorified by people. No one has really seen the appearance of hell, the people who have fallen into it never returned. It will lead to irreversible in the end and you cannot restore the situation by using any means.

 

幸好,大多數的人不會走到那一步,我們有理性,有身邊的人可以幫助我們察覺周遭的狀況,儘管自身渾然不知,只要有一刻思考的可能,我們就能止住這一切倒向深淵的情勢。不過,還是讚嘆尼采的千古名言,它讓我們不斷警惕自己,並時不時回頭一瞥,我們來時走過的路,以及前方將通往何處。

Fortunately, most people do not end with it. We are rational, and there are people around us who can help us perceive the situation. Even if we do not realize it, as long as we have the possibility of thinking, we can stop things from going backward. Still, I admire Nietzsche's age-old saying, which keeps us on our toes and glances back from time to time, to see where we've come and where we're going.
