歡迎來到病毒馴獸師計畫

It needs to go through six steps to become a tamer

Preface / ​前言

We believe that the virus is an indispensable existence of the biology. Since the virus does not have the ability to self-reproduce, it must be spread through other reprductive "living" creatures, and transforms its host in the proliferation process with a variety of gene fragments.

 

The virus can not self-reproduce, so can not be directly treated by medicine, but rely on the human immune system. Human communities and viruses can be considered as in an ecological circle. In constast to the view from current health care that sees the virus as an object of epidemic prevention and to be eliminated, our view is not with human emotional bias, but more rational and closer to the biological nature of human beings and viruses. After all, we are all interdependent creatures living together on the earth.

It needs to go through six stages to become a tamer, and we welcome you to join us.

我們認為病毒是生物界不可或缺的存在,因為病毒不具備有自我複製的能力、必須經由其他可自我複製的「活著」的生物來擴散,在擴散途中同時帶著各種基因片段改變他們的宿主。

病毒無法自我複製,所以醫藥也無法直接治療,只能仰賴人類免疫系統。人類群體以及病毒可以說是一個生態圈。相較於當下醫療衛生領域將病毒視為防疫對象、欲除之後快的對象,這樣的看法更不帶有人類情感偏見、較為理性,也更接近人類與病毒的生物性本質。畢竟,我們都只是共同生存在這個地球上互相依存的生物體

成為病毒馴獸師,需要經過六個步驟,歡迎你一同加入。 

Setp 1   Establish the Relationship

步驟一 建立關係

Declaration / 宣言

The new tamer needs to follow the tamer declaration by recitation, and to prepare their own answer for each question.

The attitude of the human beings toward the viruses should be able to alter, rather than presuming that the virus can only be the enemy.

病毒馴獸師宣言需要新加入的病毒馴獸師大聲跟著複誦,並對於每個問題做好自己的答案。

人類面對病毒的態度應該是可以選擇的, 而不是預設病毒就只能是敵人。

Setp2   The Life Trajectories with Virus

步驟二 與病毒共同進行的生命軌跡

TAMER  /  Pei-Ying Lin

TAMER  /  Miranda de Graaf

This is the life records if the world's first two tamers. In the world of tamers, the personality and behavior of the tamers will be affected by the virus to a certain extent, because of the intimate interaction with each other. In the case of these two tamers, you can see how the tamers and the viruses are compatible with each other (in the degree of congenital susceptibility of the blood gene) and the subsequent training (in the response of viral antibody),

這是世界上最早兩位病毒馴獸師的生命紀錄。

在病毒馴獸師的世界中,因為與病毒的緊密互動,

人格與行為是會受到病毒一定程度影響的。

 

在他們的病毒馴獸師檔案中可以看到馴獸師本人與

病毒的契合程度(血液基因決定的先天易感染程度)

以及後天的訓練(病毒抗體反應)。

As well as their blood profiles that transformed according to their life trajectories, and vice versa.

以及他們根據自己血液檔案與所進行的生命軌跡、 與他們根據生命軌跡所改變的血液檔案。

Setp3   Tamer’s  Tea

步驟三 病毒馴獸師藥草茶

As a tamer, you will need to be psychologically prepared for the extreme pain brought from Norovirus; the Tamer’s Tea Ceremony is the development for such a need. Practice once in an year or years, the ingredients used in the tea ceremony simulate Norovirus infection which will cause you suffer from vomiting and diarrhea, and to train the tamers’ firm mind through physical experience.

作為病毒馴獸師,也需要對諾羅病毒所帶來生不如死的疼痛心理上有良好的準備, 病毒馴獸師茶道便是為這樣需求而發展出來的儀式。 一年或數年進行一次, 茶道中所使用的所有成份皆可模擬諾羅病毒感染的上吐下瀉,讓病毒馴獸師經由身體體驗堅定心智。

Setp4   Tamer’s Exercise

步驟四 馴獸師健康操七式

This series of movements are designed to accommodate daily sampling and hygiene of a normal Virus Tamer’s life. Training focuses on the fingers, shoulders, and arms, along with increasing the movements around spin which is believed to be related with immunity in Chinese Medicine. This is to prepare the Virus Tamer for an environment surrounded by viruses.

這系列的動作設計主要針對病毒馴獸師日常取樣與衛生行為設計,特別訓練手指、肩關節與手臂的動作,同時綜合中醫活絡脊椎經脈的理論增加脊椎運動,讓馴獸師強身健體面對病毒肆虐的環境。

Setp5   Study on the Behavior of Tamer

步驟五 病毒馴獸師行為研究

When the tamer practices health training year after year, and pay attention to their physical movements in daily life details, will the tamer develops a new body posture?

當病毒馴獸師年復一年進行健康操訓練、並且在生活細節中處處注意自己的肢體動作,馴獸師們是否會出現新的身體姿態?

Setp6   Human Crowd as Beast Crowd – Simulation Game of Actions on Decisions

步驟六 人群如獸群 - 行動決策模擬遊戲

The simulation game designed for the new tamers enables 2-6 tamers to discuss and plan the strategy and attitude in the face of viruses, and to enhance the tamers’ ability to think about the interactive relationship between personal behavior and the dynamics of viruses from the view of human crowd.

這是為了新病毒馴獸師所設計的模擬遊戲,讓2-6名馴獸師們能共同商討、策劃面對病毒時應該使用的策略與態度,提升馴獸師們從人群的角度思考個人行為與病毒動態的互動關係。

Let's start playing a Simulation Game

拿起桌上的手冊與桌遊,

開始進行一場病毒馴獸師

行動決策模擬遊戲吧!
