Sodom was a paradise that many people yearn for. But due to the value of humanity, this city faced an inevitable outcome[1]. On the other hand, Manjusaka (lycoris radiata) is the door to pure paradise. The “end” is the purpose of history. It can be complete, or it can be nothing new under the sun. Besides, the “gift” is the pathos of “the angel who turned his back to the history in the storm”[2].

索多瑪在迎來太人性的生活價值所不能避免的終局以前,是多數所嚮往的樂土。而曼殊沙華卻是另一種清淨價值樂土的前廳。 “終點”是歷史的目的理性,它可以是完滿,也可以是太陽底下從此再無新事。而“禮物”,是“背向歷史\風暴的天使”的悲愴。
