The word “supernatural” is used to describe things that cannot be explained by nature’s laws. Some mysteries still remain unsolved. A representative example is the European “Red Shoes” incident.
The fairy tale “The Red Shoes.”
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Karen. Her family was very poor and had no money to buy beautiful clothes and shoes. Later, she was adopted by an older woman, who bought her many beautiful clothes and shoes. But the little girl dreams of having the same red shoes as the princess.
One day, the old lady found a pair of identical red dancing shoes. The shoemaker said they were custom-made for a young lady and might not fit her feet well. But the old lady bought it anyway. Karen put on the red dancing shoes, feeling extremely happy. Since she wore these red dancing shoes, she never wanted to wear any other shoes.
Karen was very happy. Her new dancing shoes received praise from many people. As long as she puts on her beautiful red dancing shoes, she will dance involuntarily. Winter is here, and the old grandma is sick and needs Karen’s care. But Karen doesn’t listen to Grandma’s words. Instead, she sneaks out and wears her beautiful red shoes to dance.
Grandma was very sad and told Karen that doing this would be magical. But Karen didn’t take it seriously. She didn’t listen and continued to dance in her red shoes as usual. One day, when she was dancing in the garden, a little angel told her: “You have been under the magic of the red shoes. It will make you dance non-stop and never stop.”.”
Karen was so scared that she regretted not listening to her grandma. She begged the little angel to take back the red shoes, and the little angel agreed to her request. From then on, Karen cared for her grandmother and wore ordinary shoes.
European “Red Shoes” Incident
In 1518 AD, a woman named Philo suddenly danced a jig on the street in a small village in Europe. Everyone watched with joy, but this was the beginning of terror. People on the street admired her dancing, but the strange thing was that she kept dancing and never stopped.
Gradually, people discovered the clues, and the Filipino worker’s face showed a painful expression. People quickly stopped her and even pushed her to the ground. The OFW’s legs kept twitching and foaming at her mouth despite this. Finally, she collapsed due to exhaustion.
But it didn’t end there. Somehow, there were people on the street like her who started dancing on the street. Slowly, more and more people started dancing on the street until 400 people were dancing like Filipino workers. Soon after, people all fell down due to exhaustion from dancing.
According to some people, it was because they heard a kind of strange music that their bodies would keep moving and dance. Others said that they had offended the gods and that the gods were punishing them. Those 400 people were regarded by everyone as people who had been cursed by God. Ultimately, they had no choice but to be driven to the mountains and left to fend for themselves.
And this incident is not just this one. This situation also happened in a small place in Italy in 1957. People couldn’t stop dancing and eventually died of exhaustion. People call this incident the “Red Shoes” incident.
This incident cannot be explained by medicine or science, and there is still no good theory to explain the occurrence of this incident. Many people don’t believe this kind of thing, but such horrible things happen worldwide. If it is just a punishment from the gods, it would be one-sided and even absurd.
Human and Nature
Humans live in nature, and humans have always depended on nature. We are not the masters of nature; we are just a small species in nature’s development and evolution process.
In other words, if nature is an elephant, we are an ant, and it can easily trample us to death. Since ancient times, many people have tried to challenge the authority of nature, but they were eventually eliminated. In the eyes of nature, we are overestimating our capabilities.
The simplest example is that we farmers have been cultivating the land, but the land has a dormant period. If we continue to use the land in a certain year, the land will not be suitable for farming in the next year or several years. Things don’t work well, and you can’t even grow anything.
China’s rapid development since the founding of the People’s Republic of China has caused significant damage to nature, especially in agriculture and industry. The extraction of petroleum and other minerals causes huge damage to geology and other areas. My country’s rapid development is also accompanied by damage to the natural environment.
We realized that the harm to nature is significant. We must reduce the speed of development and make some changes to the environment. Development is for future generations, but it severely damages natural resources and does not leave enough resources and opportunities for future generations to develop.
Nowadays, in the steady development of our country, we will also maintain the environment at the same time. Our natural environment in China has become an example for countries worldwide to learn from.
Looking back at the “Red Shoes” terrorist incident in Europe. We can regard it as nature’s “punishment” to humans. Human beings’ disrespect for nature will eventually be punished by nature.
Nature will “give back” to us various viruses, bacteria, natural disasters, etc. One of these will cause a devastating blow to us, causing the death of a large number of innocent people and causing countless properties. Loss.
Medicine or biology cannot explain many unsolved mysteries in the world. Some people believe it is caused by God, but not everyone believes in religion. The “Red Shoes” incident has not yet received a good theoretical explanation.
In fact, science still needs to continue to progress and develop. There are still many places we humans have not touched, and there are still many things that science cannot explain. In other words, our scientific development still needs to be constantly updated, and we still need more people to work hard for the cause of science.
At the same time, in the development process of each country, the natural environment must be continuously repaired and protected. The natural environment is our ancestors and needs the protection of each of us.
