The world is flat and the world is through

In the vast vast Eurasian continent, there are two “article” epic business road: one in the land, caravans turned over the mountains, through the Gobi Desert, the sound of camel bells reverberate long journeyless long journey; one in the ocean, Merchant set off the blue sky blue sky, bumpy in the stormy sea, little white sails embarrassing waves of the vast sea.

The two “article” business road, one end of the Eurasian continent connected to the eastern end of the ancient China, one end of the Eurasian continent connected to the western end of the ancient Rome – two powerful empire, strung the whole world. Marching the millennium business road, different races, different colors, different languages, different beliefs, different cultures, different ideas of people travel between the shuttle,

At the end of the nineteenth century, the German geologist Ferdinand von Lee Sihoffen named the spider web in the usual “Silk Road”.

For thousands of years, it is precisely between the East and the West, the region of Europe and the Pacific, constitute the axis of the Earth’s movement. Silk Road to break the boundaries of the family and the state, the country and the four civilizations – Egyptian civilization, Babylon civilization, Indian civilization, Chinese civilization together, business road connected to the market, even the mind, Civilized.

It is on the Silk Road that the Eastern and Western civilization shows the excitement of detecting unknown civilizations, especially among Western historians. Ancient mysterious oriental civilization in the end pregnant with what kind of human life? What will be the power of Western civilization? British scholar John Hobson in the “Western civilization of the East origin,” a book, answered these questions: “Oriental Western” or “backward Western” how through the “first area” of the East, to capture the human civilization Fireflies, step by step to shape the ability to lead the world.

It is in the Silk Road, the Western Han Dynasty Zhang Qian twice from the land to the Western Regions, the Chinese fleet at sea as far as India and Sri Lanka; Tang Dynasty foreign exchange to make a good deal of more than 70 countries, from national envoys, Foreign students gathered in Chang’an; the beginning of the 15th century, the navigator Zheng He seven voyages, arrived in many Southeast Asian countries, far from the east coast of Africa Kenya, leaving the Chinese people along the way the friendly exchanges of the people.

It is in the Silk Road, the world’s other civilizations are also absorbing the nutrition of Chinese civilization after becoming more abundant, developed. Confucianism originating from China has long been to the world and become part of human civilization. After the introduction of Buddhism in China, with the Confucian culture and Taoist culture integration development, formed with Chinese characteristics of the Buddhist culture and theory.

However, it is deplorable that the 16th and 17th centuries, the Silk Road gradually desolate. China returned to the closed land, the Silk Road desolate forced Western civilization to the ocean, thus the achievements of the great European navigation era, to promote the development and prosperity of modern European civilization.

Today, as a responsible Eastern country, China is thinking about how to use the concept of civilization to guide the world layout, the century pattern, which is China should bear the mission.

“Book of Changes” There is a cloud: “The past is not poor that the pass … … push the line of that pass.” Civilization of the fault zone, often a fusion of civilization. In the second decade of the twenty-first century, China once again attracted global attention to this extraordinary historical significance on the road. With the revival of the Silk Road, not only the Chinese traditional culture to re-sort out, but also the East and West civilization and a large-scale exchanges, blending, confrontation.

Fall in fact think of its tree, drink its flow of people with their source. Chinese culture is not only the wisdom and memory of the individual, but also the collective wisdom of the entire Chinese nation and collective memory, is our way to find their homes in the future road map. The descendants of the Chinese nation drifted to the rest of the world like seeds, but wherever they were, no matter when, as long as our cultural traditions were kept in vogue, we could find our concentrators – those who had met , Those who are familiar with the language, those frequencies close to the heartbeat, those infiltration so far the ritual, those lush and robust legend, those heartfelt attention, this is our Chinese road map on the mark and emblem.
