Borges and the mirror

 Borges was always afraid of mirrors when he was young, even the shiny mahogany furniture and the clear water, because the image of his body made him feel uncomfortable and frightened. Once, he and his sister were playing a hunting game indoors. He was in his imagination and saw a murderer with a vague image in the mirror of the wardrobe.


Years later, the mirror that created the illusion became a recurring image in his works. He said he was afraid of being copied, and hated the weird feeling of self-multiplying. In fact, what he hates is losing his nature. He also dislikes confusion caused by psychedelic drugs, drunkenness, or sexual impulses. He likes to be rigorous and is willing to always maintain a clear thinking ability.

 

His literature is rational and anti-intoxicated, but it is also a fantasy literature. His emphasis on the image of the mirror shows that his pursuit has a utopian nature. When he no longer felt the horror of the mirror, the mirror became a symbol for him—a symbol of what might happen on the other side of reality. He believes that fantasy literature has a longer history than realism literature. The most reliable thing is fiction, whether it is true or not, and it is a realistic conception based on experience; while the soul is made of fantasy.



In a work entitled "The Blinded Mirror", he wrote: "Through the mirror, I have understood the horror of this mysterious repetition or proliferation of reality since I was a child... I understand that I have always been anxiously guarded. Watch them." Next, he told a terrible story about mirrors that "miraculously appeared in real life". Through a story of others, he expressed his fear and dislike of losing his nature, and at the same time showed that he "doesn't care anymore" at this time. He wrote his own transcendence and new understanding.

Moroccan football team: "The most familiar stranger"

   When I was still in college ten years ago, I led a sightseeing group of more than 30 Moroccan students. Before meeting them, my general impression of the Moroccans was that they are from North Africa but closer to the Arab world. They have religious beliefs, are used to worship, and are inextricably linked with France.   When I saw the real person, I realized that the North Africans in front of me were actually a group of children playing with each other and having fun in time. They were about the same age as me at the time. I have all kinds of nicknames and nicknames. During the process of taking them to Badaling, the Summer Palace and Houhai, two classmates and I, together with more than 30 Moroccan students, realized "cultural integration" and "world unity" in the small group to some extent.   During the World Cup in Qatar, I was surprised to find that the little-known Morocco team, which was eliminated in the group stage of the last World Cup, after miraculou

Zeigarnik effect

  As a freelancer, you have to fight procrastination every day. "I've made up my mind many times, but I just can't change it. Is it because I'm slow or slow?". In fact, many procrastinations are irrational. Many obstructions are imagined by myself. So distract, postpone, avoid confrontation. It's cool to procrastinate, and it's cool to procrastinate all the time, so I can't do it. Concentration is also related to physical strength. When the physical strength is exhausted, it is even more difficult to concentrate. You’ll tell yourself: I’m too tired to do this—okay, another perfect procrastination.   In 1927, Bruma Zeigarnik's senior research found that people are more likely to care about unfinished and interrupted work than completed work. This is the Zeigarnik effect. For example, we often don't care much about what we have got, but we will especially cherish what we have worked hard but haven't got. Therefore, the TV series will tell you
