Responsibility of one human being
In the morning of 25th Apr 2009, 17th National Book Fair was opened in Chongqing. After hearing to first of open lecture given by Liu Bingjie who assume post of president of General Administration of Press and Publishing of the PRC, I hurried up to exhibition section of Tongxin Publishing House. After I sat down well, a hurried middle-aged man reached here and handed a thick book with big words on the surface: Saving Human Being.
“My name is Hu Jiaqi, author of Saving Human Being. This book is very important to me, it has cost me 28 years to finish it”. His light eyes were full of wisdom, quick words with dialect of Hunan were showing his strong passion, which could betray that his hot blood near boiling point were rushing in his chest.
The topic was our common concern, so we felt familiar near when communicating. Due to my work experiences of press and publishing for more than 30 years, I have sharp eyes and become modest and simple. So our chats were directly on the key problem and we talked further, while the ideological clashes and opinions resembling answering and replying were mixed:
What is the real cause for human being to be extinct? Do you really believe that there are extra-terrestrial?
Fruits of science and technology are sure not able to terminate Human Being, but the final realization of human being salvation is impossible to work without science and technology developments.
What is the relation between your mentioned “universal unification” to World Great Harmony depicted in Chinese ancient Confucianism and International described by Marx?
What differences are between the new society with in-competitive character and equal wealth which you advocated to 26 top world human leaders to construct to utopian socialism depicted by Owen and Fourier and Earth Village predicted by Marshall Mcluhan? And so on.
The wisdom inspired by answers and replies kindle excitements of each other again and again. We felt that we are matches in playing chess, meeting a bosom friends, so we talked a lot and eloquently.
Knowing that Mr. Hu Jiaqi came to Chongqing with his book intending to find the most suitable publishing house, I told him sincerely: Tongxin is not a famous small publishing house, I pursued him to go to other great ones to find chances, you have full rights to choose among publishing houses for you are the author. If you intended to publish here after comparison, you can come here in 14.00 o’clock afternoon.
In 14.00 o’clock, he came here as expected and decided that book of Saving Human Being would publish in our Tongxin Publishing House but he wanted that it would publish as soon as possible. I held the book of 800,000 words and promised that I would read it in 10 days and gave him opinion of amendments after Labor Day.
In late dozen days this book was accompanying me whole days including days of Labor Day.
While my eyes are moving between the sentences, I felt that my body seemed to be floating among the universal spaces. With my eyes were light when turning over the pages, my soul seemed to be traveling in the time-spatial tunnel. “the rainbow becomes my cloth and wind my horse, the clouds come down from sky one by one, the drums are sounding and couches are busy going, and the deities are standing there like hemp trees”, this is the fairyland depicted by Lee Bai, ancient Chinese Deity Poet, which can be felt when reading relevant chapters about universe in book of Saving Human Being.
This book seems to have strong magnetic field, which can suddenly push you into the deep place of lithosphere to sent the roasting of hot magna; suddenly send you into the star clusters billion light-year far away from Earth to validate the systems of Universe and primary origins of Earth; suddenly squeeze you into the kernel of social cell to observe the most essential distillation of organizational structure of Human Being; and suddenly send you into the ancient time when Pan Gu produced the Earth and Sky and the dinosaurs dominated the whole world to testify the mystery of birth of ancestors of Human Being.

There are too many knowledge and key words in book, they are collected in book along the main line of survival and fate of Human Being, and the natural sciences and social sciences are mixed here, while the whole contents involve fields of astronomy, geography, mathematics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, philosophy, ethics, history, politics, economy, society, religion etc. This book is really a trade edition of Chinese style and concentrated cyclopedia. Hu Jiaqi passed the admission examination for college with score of 99 percents (total score is 100 percent) in physics, he is really an expert in producing the knowledge pearl necklace. He uses the gold line of meticulous rational thinking to knit all pearls of high knowledge contents into strings of encyclopedic necklaces which are bright and dazzling with rings connected with each other. He can depict many profound scientific theories and abstract knowledge points with easy, living, humorous languages full of feelings and abstraction, as a result, this book can be attractive and easy to understand.
I believed in and practiced the ancient doctrine of “read thousands of books and travel ten thousands of miles”, and I was curious by my nature, and liked to ask questions. With the occupational advantages of journalist, I think that I’m learned with plentiful experiences. But after reading this thick book, I found that all memories and old stories from my life of over more than half century, esp. those information difficult to forget, doubts and suspicions resulting into sudden whims and frightening feeling seem to be able to find the origins in this book, like leaves able to depend on the trunks and roots of a tree. In addition, they are like drops of water and able to join into this word onrush of depicting the survival and developments of Human Being.
From the time when I was in childhood and looking up into the starry night to find stars of Niulang and Zhinv, to time when we drank to worship Chang E in each day of Mid-autumn festival, from the abundant bloodstain of Roman abattoir, to the cold iron chains left in the rooms of slaves in western Africa; from experimentation place where Japanese armies made the germ weapons in northeastern China, to the mushroom clouds raising into sky from cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima; from the fossil of head bone of Beijing Ape-man in Zhoukoudian to bronze mask of vertical eyed people of San Xing Dui, form anti-Darwinism lab founded in Cambridge to the nebula picture of Big Bang taken by Hubble telescope exhibited in Greenwich, and so on.
Oh, what the insignificant and weak Human Being, what a pitiable and regrettable Human Being, while what the Human Being with great wisdom and abilities of behavior.
What has attracted me is those strings of encyclopedic pearls, while what has moved me so much is the grand and saint feeling of mission to care about the fate of human being in those sentences.
He with the concerns about the nation and people of this nation can be considered as one with great ambitions. However, the passions of the author of this book are more than loves to the nation and people of this nation; this is the great love to the whole human being beyond the boundaries of nations and nationalities. This kind of great love has exceeded the concerns about nation and people of this nation, so we can say that what he worries about is Human Being, Earth and sky, global world and even the Universe.
It is strange that how a common citizen living in Chinese Beijing, a common graduate, and a common entrepreneurs can produce this kind of great love and willingly take the task of saving Human Being as his own?
Each person will have his one opinion about life, society, world and future, but not all people can have such deep loves and saint feeling of mission. Human Being is comprised of each independent person; only the cooperated attempts of each independent person can undertake and complement the historical great task of saving Human Being.
As for a publisher or each person living on this planet, is there any topic greater, more urgent and more important than that of saving Human Being?
What has really shocked me is the harsh alarm to the dangerous place of whole Human Being: the shown peach and prosperity can’t conceal the survival crisis of human being like eggs which are piled up, what we are happily doing and talking about maybe the action of suicide like drinking the poisonous wine to satisfy the thirst. These remarkable, forceful and shocking alarms are not empty worries rather than objective realities. Confronted with the heavy topic of survival of Human Being, each person is sure to feel insignificant and shocking whatever a grand office or rich entrepreneur he is. This is like what a poem depicting:“ the person intending to raise into the top official will calm down after he watches the mountain, while the person busy working for his common life will forget to go back home after he say the valley”.(Wu Jun: Letter to Song Tuansi). The mountain and valley here refers to this book.
"Only after the whole human being is liberated can proletariate liberate themselves finally." This enlightening slogan prevailing in that time has been our guiding beacon and remembered deeply. As for the definition of proletariate, with the events of October Revolution wining the regime and the proletariate becoming ruler besides the desegregation of former Soviet Russian and eastern European group, with the Chinese reform and opening-up, economical developments and practices of national poverty removal and wealth production, the definition has new contents. With the spirit of developing with time, we should change this slogan into “only after we have liberated whole Human Being can we liberate ourselves finally.” Saving Human Being adopts abundant undisputable realities, researching fruits and scientific conclusion to tell us that if we failed to concern about the present survival realities of Human Being with rationality, to effectively improve various kinds of factors threatening the Human Being, to effectively adopt the revolutionary and global measures of self protection even self defense and treat Human Being well, it is possible that Human Being has been extinct before the day of liberation of whole Human Being. It is true that saving in more important and urgent than liberation.
China has joined WTO, which greatly boosts the unification of global economy and culture. Developments of modern science and technology, esp. the global converge of internet make the communication of world family very easy. So the old statements about opportunity and challenge in traditional significance have necessity to replace with new contents, which is to utilize the chance of structuring harmonious society and realizing world unification and meet the challenges of survival confronted by Human Being.
With strong and intense character of eating the peppery, the man and woman of Hunan province have the revolutionary potential, feeling of historic missions, grand verve of looking through whole world, deep deposit of extensive reading and the serious attitude of studying. These entire make Mr. Hu Jiaqi not only produce great topic of saving Human Being with heated passion, but also submit the idea of universally unified society after evaluation to the justice of social systems and realization of value of Human Being and give refined designs and scientific depiction to its basic structure and social and moral value standards.
A common individual person concerns about the whole Human Being and take the fate of whole Human Being as his own task, advocates and canvas for the realization of unified society, which can show that this kind of person is not common. His perseverance is sure to excite, while we should not ignore this kind of alarm.
It is true that each author and each book should have some limits and it impossible to be perfect, but as the general planner and publisher of book Saving Human Being, I seriously introduce this book to readers, I think you can at least get broad views and become tolerant after reading it, you can transfer from concerns about yourself to whole human being, from concerns bout present realities to the histories of 5000 years, and then you can break original narrow survival time-spatial radius, expand to whole China, whole world and even whole universe.
Showing the survival crisis to alarm the whole world, taking the business of saving Human Being as the saint responsibility, these are not the empty worries. The ancient people said: if one person can’t plan for thousands of years, he can’t plan business of short time; if he can’t plan whole businesses, he won’t plan things of one field. So each person living in present world should ask himself:
Sigh because of for the declined society, appraise of prosperous world, who can continue the long history?
Think about the ancient people and consider the later generations, what present people can do effectively?
Universally unified society proven and exhibited in book Sa
