Storyboard Text

  • When Confucius was traveling towards the east of China, he came cross two boys arguing bitterly with each other.
  • Confucius then asked what the dispute was about. One boy replied with..
  • “I believe that the rising sun is closer, and the midday sun is further away.”
  • “I think the opposite is right: the midday sun is closer, and the morning sun is farther.”
  • The other boy replied with...
  • “It is cool and comfortable with the morning sun, and it is as hot as being immersed in hot water at noon. Don’t you know that a burning object makes us feel hotter when it is closer?”
  • “The rising sun is as big as the wheel of a vehicle, and the midday sun is only the size of a dish, since an object looks bigger nearby but smaller farther away.”
  • When both boys asked Confucius’s opinion, Confucius shook his head and said..
  • "I don't know."
  • “I am going to teach you about knowledge. What you know, you say you know; what you don’t know, you say you don’t know. Then you are a real knowledgeable person.”
