I often gain a lot from listening to Liang Wendao's podcast. For example, the recent discussion about the power outage in Northeast China did not provide a definitive answer in the end, which I think is good - it provides different perspectives for thinking, rather than giving a direct answer. And sometimes, there is not only one answer.

Education has only one theme, which is the colorful life.

Increase tolerance for uncertainty: The complexity of many things in the world has exceeded our daily understanding - it requires more time and effort to retrieve and analyze, but people often find it difficult to truly engage in it, so they tend to believe in simple and easily understandable answers in order to pursue certainty.

Ideology, population decline, and decoupling from the West - three directions to understand policies.

I found that many people now read news through TikTok. As the saying goes, wherever there is traffic, things will appear there. News or e-commerce, they will not disappear just because TikTok is a short video platform. On the contrary, these things that are closely related to people are easier to accept and spread here.

After watching "The Return of the Condor Heroes," I found that the TV series has beautified the character Wang Yuyan to some extent. In the novel, she is not that innocent, but rather a bit sophisticated. In the later stages, through Duan Yu's choice, it is revealed that characters like Wang Yuyan only exist in beautiful fantasies, just like a beautiful first love.

Write more, think more. Shorten the content and increase the frequency of writing.

I saw a sentence that vividly describes watching TikTok: "Sometimes laughing, sometimes squinting."

During the Mid-Autumn Festival, I witnessed countless arguments among relatives. I found that the main reasons for their arguments are:

  • Blaming others: The one being blamed feels wronged and argues.
  • Failure to reach a consensus on actions: Different thoughts among individuals A, B, and C. A does something and is criticized by B. A does it according to B's suggestion and is criticized by C.

The policy encouraging three children has finally been implemented in some places (such as Linze County), providing subsidies for families with multiple children in terms of housing and child-rearing in the next three years. The subsidy for housing reaches 10%, which is quite significant. However, this kind of policy can only be implemented in small places, and it will definitely not work in big cities.

Ignorance and prejudice, I dislike the latter more.

The greatest virtue of a hero is to serve the country and the people. Xiao Feng is a true hero. While others were still entangled in the strength of martial arts and the size of sects, he talked about the rise and fall of the country. Even Guo Jing realized this later. When Xiao Feng became the leader of the Beggar Sect in his thirties, he already had this awareness, which is rare.

What is the right thing? How to do the right thing.

After watching "The White Tower," I still think this TV series is great. Human nature is complex, and there is no absolute boundary between right and wrong. This series showcases the complex human nature of different characters, and even those who pursue fame and fortune in the early stages will show the brilliance of human nature in the end. Another point is the music, which is very touching.

The greatest significance of "The White Tower" is to expose the darkness in medical schools, but it falls short of becoming an excellent TV series in my opinion because the characterization of the characters is not clear and smooth enough. For example, the conflict between the two main characters, what caused it? How did the major contradiction between Professor Dong and Dr. Kizaki form? The plot only shows the display, but does not explain the "why," resulting in insufficient character development and lack of persuasiveness.

We all know that there are various consumption traps under the guise of holidays, but there is always a force driving you to willingly fall into them.

Recently, I have been reading the novel "The Return of the Condor Heroes" and deeply feel that accepting things that cannot be changed also requires courage.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

  • Reinhold Niebuhr's "Serenity Prayer"

While reading "The Return of the Condor Heroes," there is a passage that resonates with me. Credit and trust are not the same. Credit has conditions, such as mortgage by a bank; trust is unconditional, such as mutual trust between you and your loved ones.

The opposite of trust is doubt. If there is no trust between people, and they rely on credit that needs to be evaluated to interact, then their relationships will be built on suspicion, full of doubt, which is terrible.

I am willing to believe that taking more walks can reduce the risk of death. Compared to before, I have changed the habit of taking a taxi everywhere.

According to a new study published in JAMA Network Open, researchers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst found that middle-aged people who walk an average of at least 7,000 steps per day have a 50-70% lower risk of death in the next ten years compared to those who walk very little.

Compared to written laws, the boundaries of morality are more blurred, and the standards vary from person to person and situation to situation.

I discovered a great English podcast called Acquired. It tells the stories behind companies. It provides complete transcripts, which is perfect for learning English.

Reading a book doesn't necessarily have to be finished. Just read what is useful to you.

The most important thing about reading is not to remember the content of the book, but to challenge fixed thinking.

Zhang Wuji is not simply described as a scumbag; he is complex. Although he is criticized for how he handles the emotions of several women, understanding his historical background and experiences can provide some insight. Moreover, he is not a conventional scumbag, but rather someone who doesn't know how to handle the emotions of each person, or even understand his own feelings towards each woman, until Zhou Zhiruo hides Zhao Min, which makes him realize his true love.

I came across an interesting description: "Being mutually exploited in both directions." It describes a group of people who work 9-9-6 during the day and contribute data by watching short videos and other entertaining content in the evening, being exploited in both directions. In the past, selling slaves was also a form of exploitation in both directions. Capital sold black slaves to produce tobacco in America, and then sold the tobacco to ordinary people in Europe, who would buy and smoke it, becoming addicted.

The "Legend of the Condor Heroes" trilogy is closely connected, with each part linking to the next, leaving endless room for imagination.

Today, I learned a description of a phenomenon: inflation of language due to overuse, which causes the original words and meanings to deviate.

In "On the Inflation of Language," Li Anzhai believes that currency is the means of exchanging wealth, and language is the medium of expressing thoughts and emotions. Just as inflation arises from the mismatch between currency and the wealth behind it, the inflation of language arises from the mismatch between language and the thoughts and emotions behind it.

Li Anzhai believes that: (1) Language is the boundary between humans and animals, and humans have culture because of language; (2) Humans create language, and language also creates humans. The language used shapes the person; (3) "Writing is a means of moving language from the auditory official to the visual official, it is one and two, two and one" (Semiotics). Therefore, language includes writing; (4) Language and writing, as symbols of cultural heritage and attitudes or social status, have their own magic and are also obstacles to thinking; (5) Magic and obstacles are related to witchcraft psychology. To remove the magic and obstacles, it is necessary to explore the relationship between language, things, and thoughts, that is, to construct "semiotics."

The most important things in life come at a high cost: freedom, ideals, and resistance.

Various major companies have responded to the policy by donating large sums of money to support "common prosperity." The scene is no less than when celebrities collectively express their opinions on Weibo. It's better than nothing.

If I agree with Adler that all troubles come from interpersonal relationships, then I need to be prepared to:

  • Behaviorally, separate the issue from the person.
  • Cognitively, understand that freedom and being disliked cannot coexist.
  • Attitudinally, have the courage to be disliked.

The content supply in a mature community depends on:

  • Whether there is enough creative space in the field of creation and the scale of creators.
  • Whether creators receive enough traffic feedback. Does traffic have monetization value?
