    The absurdity of consciousness — on the adventures of the boaster

    On Saturday, I suddenly thought of a film I saw when I was very young. It’s called the adventures of the boaster (the name of HaoTu). After reading it, I mixed feelings and wrote something casually.

    “The adventures of the bragging king”, a fantasy film made by absurd film master Terry Gilliam in 1988, tells the story of the Ottoman army besieging a European city in the 17th century. A third rate theater is performing the adventure story of bragging jazz. Who knows the real bragging Jazz appeared and claimed that the war was triggered by him, And find several people with special functions alone, and the story of gorgeous defeating the enemy. The rhythm of the film is quite compact. Today, the special effects of 1988 can only fool children. The actors play very hard. However, if this is the only case, it will certainly be labeled as rotten films and mentally retarded films in the era of the proliferation of blockbuster special effects, so first add the knowledge of the original work. The original work of this film was written by German absurd writers Ge bilge and e rasper. It was originally a German folk story, which was later sorted and re created by two writers. This is a work between fairy tales and fantasy stories. And Gulliver’s travels are known as the representative works of Fantasy Fairy Tales in the 17th and 18th centuries.

    When it comes to Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, people think of nothing more than three musketeers, lanolin ball, the French Revolution and Emperor Napoleon. In fact, the 17th and 18th centuries are earth shaking two centuries in human history. Natural science, fire gun, steam engine, social contract theory, mankind has finally liberated the mind and labor force. The production in decades has exceeded the sum of the past few hundred years, higher production efficiency, faster ships, more powerful weapons and army. A few farmers operating cannons can kill a dozen noble knights. Gunpowder and rifling sent bows and arrows, walls and devout Christians into the garbage of history. Faith and feudal system began to collapse, and individual and democratic consciousness gradually awakened. Gone are the days when the Vatican calls the wind and rain, and businessmen are unscrupulous greed without repentance. Civilians no longer pray for God’s gifts, and even priests themselves began to question whether God really existed.

    Starting from the trend of humanism, natural science has gradually developed to let the world know the real world and abandon the old subjective world. So the sextant replaced prayer and the steam engine replaced cattle and sheep. We gradually accepted the objective reality – “the material remains unchanged, and the movement is eternal.” In such an environment, some quite traditional ruling classes and intellectuals began to be unable to accept social change, but they were unable to stop the pace of history. The former could also stifle the revolution and survive, while the latter could only lament and recall the glory of the past and then be wiped out by history.

    As an original novel, the author didn’t express all this in particular, but in the film, these were expressed incisively and exquisitely. When I first saw the film, I was 8 years old. My simple experience and naive understanding only made me think it was a very interesting film, and I felt a lot of new insights when I saw it today. A scene in the film is like this: the bragging Jazz actually flew on a shell, flew to the enemy camp, jumped on another shell, and flew back unharmed (this is almost the signature action of the film). The God of death couldn’t see it anymore. He wanted to intercept the Jazz in mid air. As a result, the shell passed the God of death too quickly. Death couldn’t catch up with the shell, so he had to scream.

    When I was a child, I only felt that jazz bragging was really awesome B. It won’t die. After watching it today, I suddenly realized that the director’s good intentions – the Almighty God of death can’t catch up with the speed of the shell. And a shell killed more people than the sickle of death took away. What a bitter irony this is ~! (worship Terry Gilliam again) the film here is not meant to express anti war. But more vaguely tell us: human beings have finally surpassed their imaginary God of death ~! Because the progress of cognition makes us become the God of death ~!

    There is also the protagonist boasting that the Jazz said this when he was injured:

    I’m tired of the world, and the world is tired of me.

    Why? Why? Why? Because now there are logic and reasons everywhere. Science and technology, hydraulic laws, social norms.

    This is the rule, that is the rule, there are only rules everywhere. No place has three legged Cyclops in the southern waters, no place has cucumber trees and a sea full of wine, and there is no place for me.

    Matter determines consciousness, and consciousness reflects matter. The reflection of consciousness changes with the change of cognition. We originally thought that the world was a plane, and the sun revolved around the earth, which was created by God or some other God. However, with the progress of cognition, we gradually understand that the earth is round, not square. The earth revolves around the sun. Human beings are not created by God, but evolved from monkeys (which is too ironic for the gods). We really understand the world. Know him until you fully understand that it will never be fresh again. Those original fantasies and backward world views were eliminated.

    Absurd but not absurd. Boasting Jazz lives in such an era of rapid change and endless objective discoveries. He is traditional, conservative and unable to accept new things. He is destined to fall behind. But he still has his life: a fantasy world, where there is no roar of steam engine, no black smoke of steam turbine, no Newton’s law and molecular formula. There are only horses that won’t fall to death, the Kingdom on the moon, the sea full of wine and the treasure of Sudan. There is only an old jazz who is telling his dream of absurd adventure stories.

    When I was an 8-year-old boy, I smiled and believed that people could really fly around on shells. I fantasize that one day I can fly to the moon. In a twinkling of an eye, I was 23 years old. Now all I had in mind was making money and getting married. I knew that the ideas I had been to were absurd. But it did exist objectively in the past.

    Time flies, I seem to have returned to the three story building that was demolished a long time ago. In front of that broken TV….

    Although it’s me, it’s not who I was…….
