    Ikuo Nakamura (中村 征夫)是一位日本籍的紐約全像攝影技術家 (Holography Artist,3D moving image specialist)。

    他以創意和技術, 製造了一個在iPad上,3D立體旅遊"復活島"的機會。

    但是,我想說的是有關於Jared Diamond 所寫的復活島以前一段"慘不忍睹"的历史。

    在"崩溃"(Collapse)這本講述人類文明與生態環境的書中,Jared 告知了復活島 (Easter Island) 的古文明毀滅的來源(無關UFO, 也不是外星人)。以下是他1995年8月在"发现雜誌"的一篇摘要:

    "In just a few centuries, the people of Easter Island wiped out their forest, drove their plants and animals to extinction, and saw their complex society spiral into chaos and cannibalism. Are we about to follow their lead?"

    "......they began erecting stone statues on platforms, like the ones their Polynesian forebears had carved. With passing years, the statues and platforms became larger and larger, and the statues began sporting ten-ton red crowns-probably in an escalating spiral of one-upmanship, as rival clans tried to surpass each other with shows of wealth and power"

    "Eventually Easter's growing population was cutting the forest more rapidly than the forest was regenerating. The people used the land for gardens and the wood for fuel, canoes, and houses-and, of course, for lugging statues. As forest disappeared, the islanders ran out of timber and rope to transport and erect their statues. Life became more uncomfortable-springs and streams dried up, and wood was no longer available for fires"

    而太阳王路易十四,James也在其書評中寫到:"這復活島上本來是一片森林,當初移民來的波里尼西亞民族(Polynesians)過得是物質非常豐裕的生活,隨著人口的增加,漸漸有了部族的對立。各個部落的酋長爲了爭權奪利,開始肆無忌憚地砍伐原始森林,搭建一個比一個大的神祉,藉以誇耀于對方。結果因爲森林的砍伐殆盡,本來用於農耕的土壤嚴重流失;失去了森林,防風的功能沒有了,表層有營養的土壤被吹走了。沒有了農業,沒有了收成;沒有了森林,連捕魚的獨木舟也無法建造。

    復活島就這樣,在一個崇拜神祉,瘋狂的信仰追求的文明鼎盛高峰,期待神的應許,緊接著急轉直下。等待又等待神跡漫長的日子,糧食漸漸不夠了,開始戰爭互相搶奪。接著有人餓死,找不到東西可以吃,最後只有人吃人。先吃敵人,敵人吃完了以後,就只好吃自己的朋友,朋友沒了,吃親戚,親戚沒了,吃自己的親兄弟。當整座島嶼的人互相吃來吃去,最後吃到剩下沒有幾個人的時候,突然又發現這個島嶼上最後剩下的一點點有用的農田,又可以生産勉強吃得夠的東西,不需要再人吃人了。"



    看到這, 我倒抽了口冷氣....我們不是正在上演這齣"毫無忌憚地砍伐森林"的戲嗎?
