Mrs. Ma. Xiaoqiu Changbaishan History & Culture Park



原创 马小秋 太平洋财经 731



译者:杰拉德·多诺万 Gerald Donavan



 “我感到,陌生人,在你的存在里我被延长。西班牙女作家阿芳斯娜·斯托尔尼的十四字《致陌生人》,便是我们与张福有老师想要去传承长白山文化共同的期待。历史的记忆,文化的传承,只有传承给一代又一代的陌生人,那么这种文化才能以鲜活的状态永远存在。  山有绝顶,路无尽头。70岁的张福有老师依然忘掉他的病痛,风餐露宿,几度遇险,痴心不改地奔走在山野间,在造访远古文化的路上。而我们——也在路上。

 REVISED JULY 22 Chapter 17. To Strangers Mountains are born violently, whether through tectonic collision or volcanos, and yet they create so much of the beauty in our lives. They are awe-inspiring, fragile, and spiritual in their dimensions. A large percentage of the Earth’s fresh water originates there. They harbor a rare biodiversity of plants and animals, a rich archeological record, and precious isolation for hermits. Mountain villagers experience fresh, unpolluted air and space to roam. 

The haunting Changbai Mountains, in Northeastern China, was the subject of a traditional cultural exchange event in August of2018 called, “Worshiping the Heaven and the Mountain.” We were fortunate to have as our guest Mr. Zhang Fuyou, the “living fossil” of the Mountains. He is in his 70s and sprightly in his demeanor. He speaks in a powerful voice about the culture of the Mountains. Having studied the region for twenty years, he displays great knowledge and possesses an astonishing memory, which is reflected in the many books he has authored on the subject Zhang Fuyou has been acknowledged, with justification, as the cultural pride of Changbai.
He has climbed the mountains over two hundred times on archeology investigations. He is the person who discovered the stone bell and hand-axes that pushed estimated human activity in the mountains back by fifty thousand years. 

It would be difficult to overstate this achievement. 
In 1948, a Harvard archeologist called Hallam Movius drew an arbitrary line across the world map. This line proposed to divide ancient users of hand-axes (in Europe, Africa, and Western Asia) from tool users in East Asia. The absence of the hand-axe in East Asia was a determining factor. In doing so, he drew inevitable conclusions about a lack of technological skill on the part of East Asians. In discovering hand-axes, Zhang Fuyoudestroyed the scientific basis for the ‘Movius Line.’ He mediated a diplomatic incident concerning historical territorial claims between China and Korea, and has shared his knowledge with the well-known cultural and literary figure, Yu Qiuyu.
He was the first to confirm that Li Ji, the Lord of Yang’an on abronze sword from the Zhao Kingdom, unearthed in Ji’an, Jilin, was Prime Minister during the reign of Emperor Huiwen, and the son of Li Dui, the 36th-generation ancestor of Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty, and the fifth-generation descendant of Li Er—namely Lao Tseu.

Zhang Fuyou has shared his knowledge with the well-known cultural and literary figure, Yu Qiuyu.
His hands bear the wounds and scars from unearthing cultural relics buried in the earth. These hands have captured the history and beauty of the region. They have written his poems. He has quite a few mysterious stories to tell of his mountain investigations. He has been in the right place at the right time to witness celestial phenomena that can be a particularly beautiful sight in a mountain region.  On Baiyun Peak, the main peak of the Mountains, he saw a halo around the sun—rather like a circular rainbow. Ice crystals were suspended in the clouds and refracted the sunlight to create an astonishing halo, referred to in astronomy as a Sundog. They can be large and overpowering in effect.

As the ceremony “Worshiping the Heaven and the Mountain” came to an end, the circular rainbow appeared again. He was overjoyed at the timing: “Why does it appear now in front of these people?” He wrote a poem to celebrate the sight.The development and protection of the Culture of the ChangbaiMountains is a precious process, and even if we were witnessing an astronomical event, Heaven may have felt our sincere intention. There are intangible energies in the Mountains, where material energies and cultural energies integrate. That is the energy that has attracted generations to set foot in these mysterious heights.  Zhang Fuyou has said, “We finally have a chance to face our mysterious past, as if entering the realm of dreams, a place of living fossils that need us to discover, interpret, praise and protect them.” 

Changbaishan History & Culture Park is a project to which the group attaches great importance. We hope to do our bit in rescuing and protecting the intangible cultural heritage of the Changbai Mountains, and make them a cultural locale, and in doing so, pass on a wealth of new historical knowledge aboutthose who lived their lives here, long ago.  “I do feel, my dear stranger, that I have been extended in your existence.” 
This 14-word poem by Alfonsina Storni is the best expression of our intention to protect the culture of Changbai. A culture canonly survive its heritage is handed down to generation aftergeneration of strangers.  Mountains have peaks at which you may arrive and depart, but aroad knows no end. In his 70s, Zhang Fuyou ignores illness and pain. He continues his journey in these mountains towards the ancient culture that came before us. We, too, are on the way.
