Recently, Apple launched a new book called “San boor’s album of pictures” because it was called “a new book of the era of insects”. Through his camera lens, he has formed his delicate view of the insect world, gorgeous colors, whispering time and space, and wonderful details As well as from the birth of a myriad of biological and cultural charm. < p > < p > in the postscript of tujuan, Yue Gang mentions a Chinese idiom, yangchunbaixue and xialiba people, which seems to be the source of the book’s title. After the training of natural history, the author wants to remind us of the “metaphysics” of cognition and hope to “return to the thing itself”? But what I want to say first is that Xiali is Yuegang’s hometown in Ya’an, so he is actually the insect of his hometown and Sichuan. If you don’t believe me, please look at page 160 of “Wenjuan”: “on the hillside of Xiali, the corn is heading and bearing seeds, and the wild wheat is blooming. Halfway up the mountain, there was a buzzing sound, and bees were busy. Look at their legs. There’s honey wax hanging on both sides. It’s definitely heavier than their weight. It’s like two yellow bombs, but it doesn’t prevent them from flying around to collect honey. ” ——Of course, the human eye should not see the beeswax on both legs. Yuegang can see it because he is wearing Museum glasses. < / P > < p > the history of insects can be traced back to 400 million years ago, and the evolutionary history of human beings is only 5 million to 7 million years; insects are a huge existence in the biological world, accounting for 70% of the number of animals including human beings – this is undoubtedly a vast and diverse life world, but it is not easy to find even a little interesting and wonderful from it. As the philosopher said: “strictly speaking, it is not the eyes that see things; it is the brain and mind that see things.” In the insect world, philosophers have indeed expressed philosophical truth. < p > < p > for Yue Gang, who has been an educated youth in the countryside and a geologist in the mountains, after tracking insects back to his hometown, he still feels that “there are so many insects that he doesn’t know them.” he entered the insect world of his hometown with the help of a group of rural children. “They went out like the wind, and when they came back, there were fireflies in the glass bottle, holding them all the way away, and it seemed like fireflies in the dark Lanterns are running one by one; dozens of bamboo shell insects are dressed by bamboo branches, and they are put on the big table all of a sudden. They are involved in each other and can’t climb around. “Yuegang, who has a good harvest, rewards these sweaty children with big watermelons. For shooting tools, Yuegang explored Canon’s professional SLR camera and photographed” tennis elbow “. Later, he used Apple’s smartphone, Since 2017, I have captured more than 80000 insect photos. “Gradually, I found that I have a skill: how to make a mediocre afternoon become extraordinary, how to write the little characters like” sangqiu “,” Qingwen “and” asimodo “that SLR can’t reach or despise into epic; in a dull and boring summer day, even any solar term or any kind of shooting light, Let me tell you, there will be beautiful encounters. “Even image historian Li Gongming thinks that Yuegang’s mobile photography represents a new” image narratology “and” image production trend “- just because of Russell’s” brain “and” heart “, Yuegang can shoot such interesting pictures. < / P > < p > of course, the more important reason why Yue gang was able to shoot was his infatuation with natural history for most of his life. His neighbor’s aunt gave him a biography of Darwin as a middle school student. From then on, like the seed of fairy tales, the legend of the life of natural history lovers grew up. Fable’s, like me, is mostly reading a thin anthology, while Yuegang’s is a full Chinese translation of more than 2 million words in 10 volumes published by Huacheng publishing house. Yuegang also has three sets of Huacheng Publishing House’s: the first edition, the second edition and the introduction of Huacheng from Taiwan. “Three editions are put in three places. In the past ten years, every time he has leisure, he has taken out one or two articles to read.”. ——When he read the emotional part, Yue gang would throw a book and sigh: “if I were 20 years younger, I would be a bird writer and a naturalist. Not botanists, entomologists, but naturalists. ” < p > < p > Yue Gang clearly opposes and abandons the aesthetic and isolated specimen insect photography. What he wants to photograph is an insect in the present progressive tense from the perspective of natural history. In his words, it is an insect in a kind of “structure” and “relationship”: the “structure” and “relationship” between insects and their environment, the “structure” and “relationship” between insects and insects The “structure” and “relationship” between insects and human beings It is the insects in this “structure” and “relationship” that make up the world of insects. < / P > < p > “Atlas” should be a “small contribution” of the iPhone era to the great entomology and natural history; while “Wenjuan” of the iPhone era can be regarded as a guide and thinking tool of “Atlas”, but it also contains the writing pertinence and continuous enlightenment and reflection of our era. In the swaying epistolary narration, there are two vivid, delicate and closely intertwined “little histories”: one is a history of natural history lovers, including his adventures with “fairy aunt” and Darwin, as well as his beautiful encounters with insects; the other is a “little history” from Asia From Aristotle, Pliny, Linnaeus, Darwin, Huxley, Humboldt, Bufeng, fable to Wilson, a more than 2300 years’ history of Entomology and natural history in Europe, which has been poetically summarized and chanted by Yue Gang, such as the ninth letter “heaven does not produce naturalists, and all ages are as long as night”, is simply the brilliant movement of this development history. In terms of time and hard work, Yuegang’s pursuit of writing is more than that of Entomology and natural history. Based on the aesthetic foundation of the whole nature, the free structure of epistolary style makes him more free and easy to use words, and has superb language from time to time. Yuegang’s words always contain the passion of melting rationality and self-confidence, and now they are also surging in the world. < / P > < p > his narrative and argumentative writing has a kind of order and spirituality corresponding to the nature, just like the Longxi river flowing out of the deep mountains in his hometown. According to the pace of Su Dongpo, he often goes in his own line, but also can’t stop, such as flowing clouds and flowing water, graceful waves and clouds, but also surging waves and surging passions. In a word, he is brilliant along the road of mountains and shade flow. < / P > < p > “ephemera are all beauties. They don’t eat fireworks among people. Their life is short and they don’t like it. They are only” reserved “; when they are surprised, they are all sad and beautiful. Aristotle and Su Dongpo noticed that the tragic temperament, which is sad and beautiful and fleeting, has inherent nobility. ” Like this passage, if it has divine power, it vividly carves out the peerless insect, ephemera. < / P > < p > Yue Gang emphasized that what he wants to do is not a botanist and entomologist, but a naturalist. We can clearly judge that his core interest is natural philosophy, which is the foundation of naturalism. < / P > < p > from Aristotle mentioned by him, over the past two thousand years, philosophers have built various castles in the air and utopian ideas on nature along the path of “metaphysics”, such as Plato’s “Utopia”, Kant’s “moral laws”, Moore’s “Utopia” Even when it came to Husserl’s time, philosophers wanted to call on us to “go back to the thing itself” and start from common sense. It is true that there are many wrong paths and labyrinths in ideology, but there are no wrong paths and labyrinths of various programs and algorithms in the Internet of the iPhone Era? If we forget Wilson’s common sense reminder of “biodiversity”, it’s hard to say that we won’t be programmed into the mechanical sequence of 0 and 1 by Internet instructions.
