兩周一聚(三十二): 「如果你能當別人一天,你會選擇過誰人的生活?」

RandomCoil 問: 如果你能當別人一天,你會選擇過誰人的生活?

我是個簡單的人,如果我能當別人一天,我還是會選擇過自己簡簡單單的生活。一天一天、一步一步的行自己走出來的人生路。

試想到如果我當別人一天,我會否願意跟那個”別人”互換時,這個遊戲的好玩程度對我來說便突然大減了。再想到當別人,但沒有別人的人生經驗和天份時,我的興趣又再減了一部份。(Ha ha, I am too realistic and practical even in this dream scenario!)

早幾天Groundhog Day時,又再一年一度重看Groundhog Day電影,戲中主角重複活在同一天。我想萬一”當別人一天”發生技術毛病,出了意外,變成”當別人千天”或”當別人萬天”,那就是給我當天下首富、天皇巨星、一國之首,我也不會當。自己活了幾十年了,自己一手一腳導致的成功與失敗無數,怎樣也想看看自己可以做些什麼事出來。

我喜歡自己簡簡單單的生活,亦相信自己可以過一個有趣又有意義的人生。當別人一天也是太多,就讓我做個簡單的自己吧。

P.S. I find I keep coming back to the messages and advices in this song.

    很哲學的問題﹐你就算變成別人的身體回不到自己的身體﹐你還是你吧。成功與失敗﹐仍然是你的成功或失敗吧。

    Horace,

    It is not the same.

    Imagine you became Li Kai Shing, what about your current (old) wife? And your current (old) parents?

  3. hevangel says:

    That’s easy, I can ditch Li’s original wife and parents , then bring in my wife and my parents.

    BTW, body swap with Li Kai Shing is a bad choice, he’s old and doesn’t have many more years to live. If I would pick, I will swap with Larry Page. I only lose a few years of life and gain billions.

    Horace,

    The thing is even in an imaginary scenario, I don’t want to make billions if it mean I am hurting someone seriously (the wives and families of the people I “swapped” with).

    The problem of having a moral standard even in an imaginary scenario. :)

    Very intelligent response ca8. Groundhog Day is one thoughtful movie, and when I first saw it I kept wondering about life and its mysteries.

  7. kempton says:

    Thanks Sam. Groundhog Day is one of the classic film we love.

    I enjoy reading your entry too although I don’t admire President Bill Clinton as much as you do. He has tried to do good after his 8 years of presidency. But I can’t quite forget a few things he did during his presidency.

    簡單本來就不易為,若能簡簡單單的做人,還真不錯!!何必還去做這個那個人呢?

    Gwen,

    You are right, “簡單本來就不易為”.

    Right on, “何必還去做這個那個人呢?” :)
