We thought to begin our discussions for your new year that you have designated 2019 by having a little fun with the concept itself.

 

我们想对你们的 2019 年找点乐子来开始对你们新的一年的谈论

 

Now you most likely have a mental picture of a year as being a journey around your star that begins and ends in a particular spot. And you think this even though many of you know that this is not the case. It is a convenient thought. However it could only be true if your star was stationary.

 

现在,你可能拥有了一副画面 --- 一年就是地球围绕着太阳转了一圈。你认为是这样,即使你们许多人知道事实并非如此。这是一个便捷的想法。无论如何,这只会在太阳是静止的情况时是真的

 

 

Your star is moving at great velocity through the cosmos. And the planets in your system, being attracted to the star, seem to be chasing after it. The planetary tracks would seem to be rather like spirals. And the position of your date of January first is only relative to the star itself. In reality, it is in a far different place than it was on the first day of your last year.

 

你们的太阳在巨大的速度中移动。太阳系中的行星,被太阳吸引,看似追逐着它。行星的轨道更多像是一个螺旋。它在 1 1 日时的位置只是相对于太阳来说的。事实上,它在今年第一天的位置和去年第一天的位置已经大不相同

 

Let’s examine your year itself. Most of you use a solar calendar, but not all. Therefore, your year may or may not begin on the day you call January first. Even in the countries that still recognize the tradition of a lunar calendar, the first day of the year is not always the same.

 

让我们来看看你的一年。你们大多数人使用阳历,但不是所有人。因此,你的一年可能或不太可能从 1 1 日开始。即使在依旧使用阴历的国家,一年的第一天并不总是相同的

 

So you see, your years, your dates, your calendars are all based upon agreements between you made long ago. This has been done for most of your history, even of only for agricultural reasons. The study of the heavens that enabled a few to be able to predict certain perceivable relative positions of celestial bodies made those students of the cosmos into magicians, priests, etc. Sadly, the histories of those traditions and institutions has been somewhat less than stellar.

 

所以你看,你的年月日,你的日历,都是基于很久之前你们之间定下的协议。这在你们的大部分历史中被完成,即使只是为了农业。对天体的研究让一些人能够预测天体的相对位置,让那些学者成为了魔术师、牧师等等。遗憾的是,那些传统和体系的历史或多或少有点不尽人意

 

Now, to further have some fun, check your date and time before you go on a little journey with us, an imaginary journey. First, let’s leave your planet and look around, pick another body in your system, a moon or another planet, and mentally go for a visit. When you left Earth it was X minutes after Y hour in your time zone on this date. What time is here? Not relative at all is it?

 

现在,为了进一步地找点乐子,查看一下你的日期,在你和我们一起进行一个小小的旅程前,一个虚构的旅程。首先,让我离开地球并环顾四周,挑选另一个天体,月亮或另一个星球,精神上去拜访。当你离开地球,你的时区是 Y X 分。这里是什么时间?根本不相关,对吧?

 

Now try to imagine yourself where we are, looking at all systems, galaxies, etc. What time is it where we are relative to all of that?

 

现在,想象我们看向所有的星系、银河系等等。我们所提及的地方是什么时间?

 

You see, time as you know it is only a convenience that allows you to place events in the past and schedule things among yourselves. It is really only a human construct.

 

你看,时间,如你所知,只是一个便捷,让你把事件(复数)放到过去并安排你们之中的事物。它真的只是一个人类的构造

 

So, to end this, please allow us to wish you a very happy Now.

 

所以,结尾,请让我们祝愿你一个非常快乐的现在
