​人類黑區 Anthropic Shadow

「探索人類已知之外,在黑區重建我們與『未知』的關係。」

    「人類黑區」的「黑」不是色彩的黑,是存在於人類知識範圍外的廣大世界中的「無知」或「未知」。 此創作自「暖化」出發思考,試圖以更貼近大眾生命經驗的方式理解人類及地球所面臨的環境現狀及可能的危機。面對當代氣候變遷、地球暖化等環境危機,人類的諸多手段究竟是善用智慧,還是自作聰明?萬一關鍵性問題存在於超越任何已知範疇的人類黑區呢?人類無法從容面對環境中的未知,與無限制的延展自身慾望,會不會才是我們最大的生存威脅?

    地球歷史上的五次生物大滅絕,都與碳循環的劇變有關。地質學揭露了遠古幽冥的殘留遺跡,我們得以窺探岩層所書寫關於地球的漫長歷史。而具有高度毀滅能力的人類,在這歷史長河中不過是一層薄薄的生命痕跡,卻能以現代文明進行大規模的物質代謝,將埋藏許久的碳快速大量釋放入大氣,同時也將嚴酷、致命的熱浪不斷推向新高,威脅著包括人類的種種生物所能負荷的生理極限。地表破碎、氣候極端變化,地球耗竭,生命脆弱,重重考驗,我們,無庸置疑,正處在末日之中;或許,只有蜥蜴和鳥類能存活下來,科學家預測的近未來,可能會回到五千萬年前的始新世氣候。但另一方面,在地球這顆目前可見的行星歷史或甚至是宇宙歷史中,我們卻又何其幸運,在這時刻還存活著閱讀來自星系和地質的跨時空訊息。「人類黑區」的概念於焉而來,因為大災難導致的威脅需以被觀察到的發生頻率來計算,但是觀察者若遭摧毀,那些最大的威脅反而不可能出現在歷史紀錄裡,看不見的威脅存在於人類黑區中。那是存在於人類知識範圍之外,廣大的陌生之境,是我們的無知或未知。

"Exploring those beyond human knowledge; reconstructing our relationship with the unknown."

    The "shadow" of the "Anthropic Shadow" doesn't refer to darkness, but the "ignorance" or "unknownness" in the vast world outside the scope of human knowledge. This creation is based on the reflection of " global warming", trying to understand the environmental status and possible crises faced by humans and the earth in a way that is closer to the life experience of the public. In the face of climate change, global warming and other contemporary crises, are man's many countermeasures the acts of true wisdom, or have we overestimated our intelligence?

 

    The five major extinctions in the history of the earth are all related to the drastic changes in the carbon cycle. Geology reveals the remains of ancient gloom, and we are able to glimpse the long history of the earth written by the rock formations. The highly destructive human beings are only a thin trace of life in this long history, but they can carry out large-scale material metabolism with modern civilization, and release the buried carbon for a long time into the atmosphere, and it will also be harsh. The deadly heat waves continue to push to new heights, threatening the physiological limits that human beings can load. The surface is broken, the climate is extremely changing, the earth is depleted, life is fragile, and the test is hard. We, undoubtedly, are in the doomsday; perhaps, only lizards and birds can survive, and scientists predict that in the near future, they may return to the Eocene of five thousand years ago. On the other hand, we are fortunate enough being in the history of the planet, the earth, or even in the history of the universe. At this moment, we are still reading the inter-temporal message from the galaxy and geology. The concept of "Anthropic Shadow" comes from the notion that the threat caused by the catastrophe needs to be calculated by the frequency of observations, but if the observer is destroyed, the biggest threats may not appear in the historical record. The threat that is not seen existed in the Anthropic Shadow, that is outside the scope of human knowledge, the vast strange land, is our ignorance or unknown.
