北冥有鱼,其名曰鲲。鲲之大,不知其几千里也;化而为鸟,其名为鹏。鹏之背,不知其几千里也;怒而飞,其翼若垂天之云。是鸟也,海运则将徙于南冥。南冥者,天池也。齐谐者,志怪者也。谐之言曰:“鹏之徙于南冥也,水击三千里,抟扶摇而上者九万里,去以六月息者也。”野马也,尘埃也,生物之以息相吹也。天之苍苍,其正色邪?其远而无所至极邪?其视下也,亦若是则已矣。
《庄子》逍遥游

看《庄子》一书, 最误导的就是历代的诠释。 无论是古代还是现代的, 许多诠释都无法超越前代的思想。 虽然社会进步了,可是脑袋僵化却让许多看《庄子》的人, 无法超出前人的思想。 这个问题, 其实《庄子》 书里头, 秋水篇里头已经说了, 夏天的虫是无法知道冰的样子 (夏虫不可以语冰)。

《庄子》逍遥游, 开头就说了一个现象。

北方的大海里有一条鱼,它的名字叫做鲲。鲲的体积,真不知道大到几千里;变化成为鸟,它的名字就叫鹏。鹏的脊背,真不知道长到几千里;当它奋起而飞的时候,那展开的双翅就像天边的云。鸟,迁徙到南冥。南冥就是2
银河。

《齐谐》是一部记载奇异事情的书,书记载说:“鹏迁徙到南冥,翅膀拍击,可以激起三千里的水波,一飞就九万里高,,用了三个月才到达”。
野马看起来就好像尘埃那末细小, 任何生物看起来都可以轻盈的被风吹起来。 苍茫的天空,无法形容它的颜色。 而它的遥远, 眼睛是无法看到它的尽头。 看下去, 万物就好像和混为一体了。

今天的太空火箭, 充其量只不过为了要摆脱地心吸力(gravity). 摆脱地心吸力 9.8m/s 的动力, 对几吨重的火箭来说, 需要的能量非常巨大。 在牛顿的里论下,万物的运动都有它的反作运动。 所以逍遥游里头的鹏鸟激起三千里的波, 它的反应作用, 就能让鹏鸟扶摇直飞九万。 用现代的知识来说, 就是一个超级太空飞船起飞反应。

今天的太空火箭虽然达到了24.5 玛 (Mach 24.5 音速 24.5 倍,8.428km/s ), 用每秒钟8.428 公里的速度来摆脱地心吸力, 它激起的震波不超过一百公里。 如果科技发展达到了《庄子》九万个里,那末震波到达三千里外,根本是很正常的事。

有趣的是, 光的速度到达了每秒 299,792.45 公里, 大鹏鸟一飞就九万里高(90,000 里/s ),这里头的计算非常惊人 : 这299,792.45 除于90,000,是3.33。 这数头的精确, 不只是巧合这么简单。 想像一下, 用光秒三份之一的速度来飞行!可能两百年后的地球人才能达到这个地步。

太阳距离地球大概 8.31 分钟 光里, 用大鹏的飞行速度, 乘0.33 倍, 27.6 分钟就到达了太阳。 从地球飞出太阳系, 大鹏鸟还用不到一小时。 飞南冥要用到六个月, 那末这距离要到了 435,456百万里(435.45 giga miles, 如果用一个月28 天来算)。

由于古人的【里】 和现代的距离的里数不同, 我们是无法精确的算出这大鹏的速度。 要知道,在现代的天文,专家甚至提出了天文單位 (Astronomical Unit 約一億五千萬公里或9300萬英里)

无论是用古代的里数还是现代的天文单位, 南冥这个地方是达到了 435,456 亿个单位距离。

巧合的是,古埃及的可米756c 和古玛雅 576c 的(The Kemi 756c and the Maya 576c)的相乘是 435,456。 只有用古玛雅人的 52 周期,才可以有一个月 28 天的计算(7 天 x 4 星期), 才可以得出 435,456 这个数字。

《庄子》留下的这些资料真的不是“比喻” 这么简单。 几千年来,单靠一些古代的注释和理解, 《庄子》就变成不论不类的避世哲学。 可以到达星际航行地步的想法, 不是落后时代的人类可以理解的。

恐怕现代人可以做的是, 把《庄子》尽量用现代人的看法去理解诠释, 才可以有限度的还原《庄子》的哲学。 为什么说是有限度呢? 因为《庄子》里头有些事物, 不是我们 21 世纪的语言可以涵盖的, 夏虫如何可以语冰呢?

Zhuangzi – Space traveling
The first paragraph of Zhuangzi – the book , has speak of a special phenomena.

In BeiMing, there is a fish call Kun. Kun are so huge, it extend to thousands miles. Transform to a bird, call Peng. The back of Peng are thousands miles in length. It roar and fly, the wings expand and touch the cloud. The bird, across the seas to NanMing, another pool in the sky.
ChiJia, a book which record strange phenomena, say,” Peng going to NanMing, the water splash to 3000 miles wide, and the shoot up to the sky 90,000 miles, and took 6 month to reach.”.

Zhuangzi – XiaoYaoYu

For 2000 years, no man has the concept of inter-stellar traveling. Thus, every scholar that view the first paragraph as some sort of moral story, few people are associate it with real events that happens.

Today, the fastest man made space shuttle are around 25 Mach .

While according to the story told in ZhuangZi, Peng shoot up 90,000 miles in a flip of eyes, and the shock wave it cause right 3,000 miles away. According to Newton laws of motions , this shock wave are normal.

When we start gather scientific figures, the Peng 90,000 miles per hours speed are pretty close to one third of speed of light (299,792.45 km/s ) in a second.

It is amazing that the number 0.33 are pretty close to one third, it is a unbelievable number for people live in 2,000 years ago.

Carried the calculation further, the travel distance to NanMing tooks 6 months, this is a great distance of 435.456 billions miles unit.

Under the ancient Egypt Kemi 756c and ancient Maya(CE 250 to 900) 576c fractal system, multiply 756 with 576, you will get 435,456.

If you notice the month calculation to yield 435,456 billions unit miles, it is using 28 days per month cycles, which again coincidently match the Ancient Maya 52 annual cycles. Thus 1 month will be 7 days x 4 weeks = 28 days.

The ancient works of Zhuangzi are not ancient as we imagine. Because the limited vocabulary and knowledge, the translation and interpretation rarely reflect the real meaning. Just imagine this, explaining how a Flashlight works to an 18th century human being. Today, even a school children know how it works. And try to explain how Mechanically powered flashlight to the inventor who accidental invent the flash light, it is mission impossible. Because a simple LED is beyond the understanding of the people.
