來自閃電嘅形,同[1],本為天神。然而到春秋戰國,已出現形而上學意義,人有之神。咁類似西洋Spirit嘅意思。Spirit來自呼吸。神同好有關係。

形而上學來講,可以有幾種解法:

  1. 神係隻所有生物都有嘅嘢,係種唔可度到嘅嘢,或者係能量。有啲諗法將同靈魂(soul)同神分開,靈魂係永遠存在,就算未身都響度,靈魂已經響處。而神係同身一齊大,係生命一部份。多數都傳統信仰,都唔會將兩樣分開。
  2. 神亦都可以指。生物死咗就變成鬼。唐人就分陽嘅叫神,陰嘅叫鬼,又或叫靈[2]
  3. 神亦都係知覺智慧。呢個係生人同死屍嘅分別。印歐地等同於氣,呼吸。
  4. 神係成個宇宙嘅知覺,類似神祇
  5. 基督敎聖神,又叫聖靈

生命之力[編輯]

神,人身之上嘅嘢。人有神就會,無神就會頻。然而得道之人,佢哋嘅神可以同自然相合。如此體現喺精神元神凝神神氣心神等之中。

文子道原,「古者三皇、得道之統、立於中央、神與化遊、以撫四方。」又如淮南子原道,「昔者二皇、得道之柄、立於中央、神與化游、以撫四方。」此處嘅神,就係三皇二皇所有嘅神。

歐洲而言,一六二八年哈維、 一六三三年笛卡兒,都不約而同,認為生命之力、生命之神,可以使人生動起來,同唐人講嘅神一樣[3]

[...] because of the improvement in philosophy [...] men began to break loose from the trammels of Greek and mediaeval metaphysics, and to realize that a process is not explained by the arbitrary assumption of some hypothetical cause invented to account for it. So long as the phenomena exhibited by living things were regarded, not as manifestations of the properties of the kind of matter of which they were composed, but as mere exhibitions of the activity of an extrinsic independent entity, a pneuma, anima, vital spirit, or vital principle which had temporarily taken up its residence in the body of an animal, but had no more essential connection with that body than a tenant with the house in which he lives, - there was no need for physiological laboratories. [...] Both Harvey and Descartes, however, still believed in a special locally placed vital spirit or vital force, which animated the whole bodily frame as the engine in a great factory moves all the machinery in it.
