“We have questions about what happens to the characters after the end of the book, specifically Anna’s—”

我们有问题要问:“在这本书的故事情节结束之后,书中这些角色,他们身上发生了什么事,特别是安娜——”

“You wrongly assume that I need to hear your question in order to answer it. You are familiar with the philosopher Zeno?” I shook my head vaguely. “Alas. Zeno was a pre-Socratic philosopher who is said to have discovered forty paradoxes within the worldview put forth by Parmenides—surely you know Parmenides,” he said, and I nodded that I knew Parmenides, although I did not. “Thank God,” he said.

 “你错误的以为我需要听到你的问题才会回答。你对哲学家芝诺熟悉吗?” 我茫然地摇摇头。“哎呀,芝诺是一位前苏格拉底时期的哲学家,他发现了巴门尼德提出的世界观当中存在的四十个悖论,你肯定知道巴门尼德是谁吧?”他说。我点头表示我知道,其实我完全没有概念。“谢天谢地。”他说。

“Zeno professionally specialized in revealing the inaccuracies and oversimplifications of Parmenides, which wasn’t difficult, since Parmenides was spectacularly wrong everywhere and always. Parmenides is valuable in precisely the way that it is valuable to have an acquaintance who reliably picks the wrong horse each and every time you take him to the racetrack. But Zeno’s most important—wait, give me a sense of your familiarity with Swedish hip-hop.”

“芝诺的工作就是专门揭示巴门尼德的错误和过于简单化的理论。这并不难,因为巴门尼德的理论错的一塌糊涂。巴门尼德有价值的地方就在于他有这么一个相识的人,每次在带他去赛马场的时候都能挑错马。但是芝诺身上最重要的——等等,让我再听听用瑞典语唱的嘻哈舞曲。“

I could not tell if Peter Van Houten was kidding. After a moment, Augustus answered for me. “Limited,” he said.

我实在不知道皮特·范·豪顿是不是在开玩笑。过了一会奥古斯都替我回答说“我们听不懂。”

“Okay, but presumably you know Afasi och Filthy’s seminal album Fläcken.”

“好的,但假设你知道Afasi 和 Filthy的专辑叫”Fläcken“”

“We do not,” I said for the both of us.

“我们不知道。”我替我们俩回答道。
