Chapter 0010

Yet, the world is contradictory. There is unfairness and sadness in the wider society that she cannot ignore. She often imagines a future in which all the current and historical problems are resolved. With enormous technological advancement, people are intellectually enlightened, rational, loving, caring and happy. She wonders what the future world in a few centuries will look like. She wishes that she had been born in that hopeful future.

Chapter 0011

One day, she and her robot are looking into space (and time) through their telescope. They see a “UFO” land in a field not far away. They rush out … only to find out that the person coming out of the spaceship is the scientist’s clone from the 23rd century.

一天,她与自己的小机器人在天文望远镜下仰望时空。她们看到了一个“UFO”(不明飞行物)在不远的旷野里着陆。她们赶紧跑出去……只见从飞船中走出的人是她的克隆,来自23世纪。

 

Chapter 0100

The clone has escaped from a disaster in her own time. The clone does not quite understand what exactly has happened. Even though her world is much more advanced than in previous centuries, she experiences many problems in her society – problems that have carried over from the past. She concludes that in order for her to find the root cause of the disaster, she needs to travel back to the past and experience the social environments that define her contemporary time.


克隆从她的年代逃离了一场灾难。她并不完全明白到底发生了什么。虽然她的世界比过去的几个世纪发达,她依然经历了所在的社会的问题,而这些问题都是历史遗留下来的。她总结,如果要找到灾难的根源,她需要回到过去并亲身体会当时奠定未来的社会环境。

 

Chapter 0101

Besides, she’s curious about her own origin. She wants to learn more about the scientist from whom she received her genes and fragments of memories. Thus, the 21st century is a natural choice as a destination.


而且,她很好奇自己的来历。她想了解更多关于那个给了她基因与零碎的回忆的科学家。因此,21世纪自然是目的地。

 

Chapter 0110

Spending time together, the scientist and her clone learn from each other, about their lives, and each learns about the world that the other was born into. The scientist grows more and more concerned about the future world and decides to witness it herself. She takes the spaceship from her clone and flies into the future with her robot. Her clone takes her place as an astronomer and continues to study history at the same time.


一起生活,科学家与她的克隆相互了解对方、她们的生活经历与各自所生的世界。科学家对未来的世界越来越担忧,决定亲自一睹。她开启克隆的飞船,带上她的小机器人,飞向未来。她的克隆留下来替她继续从事天文学,并同时学习历史。

 

Chapter 0111

Motivated by her curiosity, the scientist takes a detour to look at the 22nd century. There, she meets another scientist. His intellectual level matches hers exactly. He is warm and kind. He has deep knowledge and understanding not only of science and technology but also of world events and their social implications. They fall in love. They live and work together for half a century.

在好奇心的驱使下,科学家顺道去22世纪光顾一下。在那里,她遇到了另一位科学家。他与她的思想层次完全吻合。他十分的温暖与善良,不仅对科学技术有着渊博的知识,并对世界事件与社会影响也深刻理解。他们相爱,一起生活与工作了半个世纪。

 

Chapter 1000

He works in a Natural History Museum, which turns out to be a whole continent. Yes, a whole continent on Earth has been transformed into a museum. It preserves the technologies and infrastructure of previous civilizations, as well as the wilderness of prehistorical times. Some areas even use museums built in the previous centuries as categorical sections – there are museums inside museums inside museums …

他在一个自然历史博物馆工作。这个博物馆建在整个一片大陆上。是的,地球上一整片大陆被建造成一个博物馆。它保留着过去文明的科技、建筑、基础设施,还有森林海洋等原始样貌。有些展区甚至直接使用了前些世纪的博物馆,构造了一个博物馆套一个博物馆再套一个博物馆… …

 

Chapter 1001 

Human society has developed in many areas of science, including medicine and space exploration. Aging has slowed down. Developing a mature clinical human clone technology becomes an area of focus in the research center inside the Natural History Museum. They also develop a way to upload one’s memories onto hardware. The scientist embeds a chip in her robot, who records her memory.


人类社会发展了科学的许多方面,包括医疗与太空探索。衰老减缓。开发成熟的人类克隆临床技术成为自然历史博物馆科学研究所的重点项目。他们还研发出了将回忆储存到硬件的技术。科学家将她的记忆存到了一个芯片中,嵌入自己的小机器人里,这样它便可以记录她的回忆。

 

Chapter 1010

Although the 22nd century is much more advanced than the 21st century, there are still struggles and conflicts caused by the unequal societal and economic structures. The scientist wonders how these are going to evolve during future generations. Reminded of her initial intention of travelling to her clone’s era, she decides to leave. To keep her in her love’s memory, she gifts him her robot – her companion since the time she was an astronomer from the 21st century.


虽然22世纪比21世纪发达许多,不平等的社会与经济体制依然使人们面临各种针扎与斗争。科学家很想知道这些会如何在更未来的年代发展演变。她记得初心是要目睹自己克隆来自的时代,决定离开。为了让爱人留住她的记忆,她将小机器人送给了他 —— 那个从21世纪就一直陪伴着她的小机器人。

 

Chapter 1011

She flies into the 23rd century, finds out about where her clone comes from, sees the future world that she dreamed about and discovers the precursors of the disaster. She then realizes that her time is up. It is time to answer her ultimate question. She drives her spaceship into a black hole. If she is still alive, she will find out what is on the other side, beyond the white hole, otherwise, so be it …


她到了23世纪,明白了自己的克隆是怎么来的,看到了一直梦寐以求的未来世界,并发现了灾难的前奏。她意识到自己的时间差不多了,是时候解答她的终极问题了。她开启宇宙飞船飞往黑洞。如果她还幸存,便可看看另一头白洞外是什么,否则,也圆了……

 

Chapter 00000000000000000000000………………………………………..

A civilization thousands of years ahead of us has been observing us. They were once like us. They have experienced the same developments and evolution we have experienced and gone far beyond us. They study our behaviors so that they can explain their past. Humans are good at creating problems and solving them, rather than preventing problems. They have concluded that history repeats itself. They have seen it all. Everything that the humans are struggling with and fighting for on Earth seems mundane to them now…

一个比我们先进上千年的文明在观察着我们。他们曾经与我们相似,经历过同样的发展变迁,但远远超越了我们。他们以研究我们的生活来解释自己的过去。人类很会制造与解决问题,却不会防止问题的出现。他们总结历史的重演,看透一切。所有地球人类的争斗对他们来说已是毫无意义的红尘……

 

 

 

Only the lucky artists’ work will end up in a museum and be described as “unique and special”. The rest are “untrained and ‘do not follow the rules of painting'”. Only the former will deserve: “Oh look! (There seems to be a mistake in the drawing. Maybe it’s meant to be that way.) That’s interesting…”
