Meaningful Quote in Pixar’s “DAY & NIGHT”, by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Day & Night

Toy Story 3》是何等精彩大概已毋庸赘言,其【前菜】——Day & Night》亦功不可没,可谓【完满】了我个人其中一趟愉悦的【观影历程】。虽说 Pixar 出品的动画长片近年展现了【无敌姿态】,但它此前的18部短片作品中,却仅9片闯入【终极决选】,而对上一次膺奖作品:For the Birds竟已是9年前的事了,且看普遍获高度赞赏的《Day & Night》能否迎来胜利,乃至与可望接《Up》强棒力争最佳影片大奖的《Toy Story 3》齐唱丰收?日前返乡,我才和老友说起要找出短片中一幕大气电波传达的【寓意语录】,结果昨天就在 Pixar Talk 看到了以下,出自美国著名作家 —— 韦恩戴尔博士Dr. Wayne Dyer讲课作业之一的【完整精句】分享。

Fear of the unknown.
They are afraid of new ideas.
They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon anything in reality, but based on… if something is new, I reject it immediately because it’s frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

Day & Night》除了在视效上呈现【日】【夜】分明的色泽、景像及逗趣的元素,亦带出了两个极端个体【融合互补】的含意,投影于现今【人性走偏】的社会,可谓骚到痒处。对于不熟悉的人事物,我们都存在着既定的偏见;反之对于熟悉的局面,我们则不断地【自我合理化】,筑起防卫的堡垒,宁可固步自封,也胆却地把【未知】挡在【舒适圈】外,任由奥妙的造物,埋葬于踟躇的步伐间。
