November 11, 2023 

3H Youth Leadership Camp-5 

Speaker: Zhou Yeh 

Topic: Time is Divine 

Participants: 11


To begin, let's discuss what time is. Is it merely the hands on a clock? Through the analysis of three movie posters – "Groundhog Day" (1993), "The Terminator" (1984), and "In Time" (2011) – we explored the attributes of time. This discussion covered three main points: 1. The repetition and accumulation of time, 2. The paradoxes of time travel, and 3. The quantification of time.


By incorporating elements from these films, such as the concept of a dystopian society, the speaker aimed to capture and engage the interests and attention of the participants. A comparison of actors from these older films with those of the present emphasized the passage of time, underlining how movies can preserve the spectacular moments of their lives.


The session also prompted philosophical reflections, such as the saying by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus: "No man ever steps in the same river twice." This statement highlights the dynamic nature of time – the river is constant, but the water that once flowed through it is forever changed. Summarizing the discussion, time is described as divine; it is limited, precious, fleeting, exchangeable, measurable, imaginable, and accumulative.

In last week's "Writing in Taiwanese" session, Chen Weiqi shared his unexpected journey into the Taiwanese language department and the exploration of the significance of "Mandarin" for the people of Taiwan. Reflecting on two experiences with "Mandarin," the Taiwanese language always remained outside the scope. Faced with language deprivation policies and colonial oppression, Taiwanese intellectuals have, for over a century, attempted to write in their own language, expressing themselves through "Taiwanese language writing."

December 23, 2023

Youth Leadership Camp-11

Speaker: Huang Bo-Yu

Topic: Energy is Divine, Don't Waste Energy

Participants:11


Is energy an infinite and inexhaustible resource? At the beginning of the session, we watched an animated short film with humorously exaggerated content. The video revealed that humanity's waste of resources and energy in daily life is more severe than imagined. Scientists have found that since August 2, 2023, we have been consuming the Earth's resources in an overdraft manner, leading to what is known as Earth Overshoot Day. In our daily lives, desire is also a powerful force that makes us forget to pursue what we truly need, and thus, Zhou Ye encouraged everyone to draw the items from the video and then cross out things in life that are unnecessary. This exercise helped us realize that aspects of life such as food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and entertainment can be simplified, offering various alternative ways of living.


While advocating for a vegetarian lifestyle, which can contribute to saving water resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, it's essential to understand that energy is not unlimited. Simplifying our lives and embracing the concept of minimalism can lead to a comfortable and sustainable lifestyle.


However, is the energy within our hearts limitless? Often accustomed to experiencing life through our senses, we may forget that we also possess powerful internal energy. By introducing the five layers that constitute our being – the food layer (Annamaya kosha), the vital energy layer (Pranamaya kosha), the mental layer (Manomaya kosha), the wisdom layer (Vijinanamaya kosha), and the bliss layer (Anandamaya kosha) – we discover that besides caring for our bodies and minds, nurturing and irrigating our hearts are equally important. Understanding these five layers helps us recognize the immense energy within ourselves.
