Thought_Having vs. Being擁有vs.存在?

If I am what I have, and I lose what I have, who then am I? – Erich Fromm
如果我所擁有的一切就代表我,當我失去我所擁有的,那我又是誰呢?


上星期天的CSI LV 第十一季第五集講了一個儲物癖(hoarder)的故事,不算好看,但結尾時Langston(Laurence Fishburn飾演)和Nick之間的對話剛好是我一直在思考的,非常有意思,記錄一下這個對話,有時可以回頭看看-想想。人類是否已經在一個要的太多的無止境的病態循環中,是不是太超過了?
東西吃到過飽還覺得好吃嗎?當什麼都有你還會珍惜什麼呢?也許永遠都會有想要的東西,也會不管擁有多少還是只感到空虛不滿足,是不是在追求的根本不是心中真正需要的?而純粹只是行為受商業主義文化驅動的結果?

人一生瞎忙活到底為了什麼? 其實部份是為了滿足明知永遠也無法滿足的物慾,似乎以為某種程度滿足物慾可以填補一些其他面向的空虛。
是什麼驅動人們忙著以有形事物填滿一個無形的無底洞 ?

你知道嗎,其實你需要的沒你想像的那麼多!

CSI S11E05 House of Hoarders – Philosopher Erich Fromm on Having vs. Being
Langston(Laurence Fishburn飾演)和Nick 討論了劇中儲物癖(hoarder)這個問題,其實也揭示了人性。

Langston:
The philosopher Erich Fromm, he forecast a society that was obsessed with possessions. He believed that human beings have 2 basic orientations – having and being.
Now – a person with the having orientation seeks to acquire and possess things, property, even people, while the person with the being orientation focuses on the experience, they derive meaning from the exchanging, engaging, and sharing with other people.

哲學家弗洛姆,他預測了一個著迷於“擁有“的社會,他認為人類有兩種基本傾向 – “擁有”和”存在” (having and being)。”having”傾向的人試圖獲取及擁有事物、財產甚至人;但”being”傾向的人則注重於體驗,他們從與他人的交換、參與和分享中獲得生命的意義。

Nick:
Sounds like the right way to be…
後者(being)聽起來好像是對的方式。

Langston:
Unfortunately Fromm also predicted that a culture driven by commercialism, like the one we live in today, is doomed to the having orientation, which leads to dissatisfaction and emptiness.
但不幸的是弗洛姆還預言商業主義驅動的文化(像我們今天正生活在其中)-註定會傾向於”佔有”,而這必將導致不滿足和空虛

When you consider that in 1960 there was no such thing as public storage in America.
Today there’s over 2 billion square feet dedicated to it – makes you think he had a point…
Things don’t have to mean everything nor do they have to be devoid of meaning.
They are one of the ways in which we can experience and enjoy life.
想想60年代美國還沒有公共倉庫儲存服務,而今卻有20億平方英尺的空間,還真得承認他說得有道理。
物品不意味著一切,但也不是毫無意義,它們只是我們體驗和享受生活的方式之一。

Nick:
As long as they don’t get in the way of living…
只要它們不妨礙我們過日子。
