Noah's Ark Trap


1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.d4 Nxd4 9.Nxd4 exd4
の場面

White must aboid 10.Qxd4 as that would land him in the Noah's Ark trap.

"WINNING CHESS TRAPS" の本にある内容ですが、何で 10.Qxd4 がまずいのかわからなかったので調べたところ

10.Qxd4 c5 11.Qc3 c4 12.Bxc4 bxc4 13.Qxc4
10.Qxd4 c5 11.Qd3 c4 12.Bxc4 bxc4 13.Qxc4

となりポーン2個とビショップの交換になってしまいます。
なるほどね。

こちらはちょっと手順が違っています。


ちなみに "Noah's Ark" とは「ノアの箱船」の意味です。

I would like to continue posting comments here but unfortunately and quite unexpectedly other duties have appeared. So I think I won't be able to comment here anymore, 悲しいです.

But anyway, as my last words I would like to talk about the subject of the last comment which is money and its influence on society. hitsujynさん said that there's no good or bad in the existence of money. I think you're right, but only in the personal way. Please let me explain, wanting money is not bad, bad is the MONETARY SYSTEM or system based on money and not money itself. For more information about this system based on money and its consequences, please download the movie "Zeitgeist: Addendum" from the site: www.zeitgeistmovie.com. It is officially downloadable for free.

The monetary system is all about competition and this kind of philosophy immediately throws away any possibility for sharing things. How can a society live if it it is competing internally? This is not so much about individual people sharing things but more about big companies sharing ideas including their own internal organizations, they obviously can't do that because that would allow other companies to "steal" their secret and use it to their advantage. And in some lower level, when a person says that the product he is selling is good but his neighbor's product is much better then he won't remain in business very long. Therefore in the monetary system, one cannot even be decent because he would lose his business.

Also, the companies must always be looking for a way of maximizing their profit. I don't know about Japan but some of the other countries' industries pollute the environment just to make profit. Animals are dying everyday because of human actions towards profit. This is a natural consequence of the monetary system because some kinds of industries simply can't make profit without polluting the environment and thus killing animals.

Also, the monetary system is based on scarcity where things must be available only in a limited quantity. That is why people must work to get their food, water, electric energy and other necessities. For instance I heard that banana and other fruits are very expensive there in Japan. Here in Mozambique, one can even throw a banana or a mango to the trash because there's so much tropical fruits that one simply doesn't have to buy it.
This is absolutely absurd and outdated when one considers how science has advanced to the point of being able to capture the energy coming from the sun and transforming it into electric energy, when there are locations where water is so abundant that water is not sold at all and many other examples.
Instead of countries buying things one from the other, why not share things?
Please imagine chess players hiding their findings one from the other so as to sell them for very high prices. What would the consequences be? A total paralysis because that idea would have to wait until it was too precious so that its price would raise very much. Because today's chess is all about sharing, everyday there are new variations and new ideas in openings and in the middlegame and even the endgame to some extent. Sharing is the foundation for an on-going society. Keeping things hidden for the sake of competition or establishment of some structure is the foundation for a paralyzed society.

I hope you don't think I'm being radical, instead of taking my word for it, please investigate. I love chess and I also love doing other things but I can't stand the thought that millions of people are dying everyday from avoidable situations. Why can't I stand this thought? Because I could be one of them, dying right now as if I wasn't a 人間 at all. That is why the only solution I see is Jacque Fresco's idea and The Venus Project.

His idea is that the world must declare all the Earth's resources as the common heritage of all the world's people. From then on, he has a beautiful plan of redesigning the earth worthy of study by a chess player. His plan always reminds me of Mikhail Botvinnik and his methodic approach to chess because he thinks about everything that the human being and environment need. In his plan, money would not exist because science would be used to produce all the things the humans need in such an abundance that there would be no need to sell anything at all.
Well, too much for last words. :)
As the real last words, please investigate about the world we are living in and take your own conclusions. I hope I clarified my point. Well, that's really all I wanted to talk about. If it is too long and too boring, 本当にすみません。

コメントありがとうございました。

正直、私にとってはコメントに書かれていることは高度な内容です。文章が難しいというのではなく、書かれている内容について考えるのが私にとっては難しいです。

nivaldo さんがとても良いことを書かれているのはわかります。

hitsujyunさん

正直、僕はhitsujyunさんの御返事を知りたくてここに来ました。

できれば日本語で全てを説明したかったんですが僕の表現力はまだまだです。
ですから、これから英語でコメントさせていただきます。

>文章が難しいというのではなく、書かれている内容について考えるのが私にとっては難しいです。
hitsujyunさん, it is natural that so much information all at once may be confusing and difficult to think about. When I first received this information, it was a little easier because I was already worried about the actual situation. I live in Mozambique which is a country in 南アフリカ and therefore very poor. ここではインターネットは奇跡です。(Most people here in Mozambique also don't believe that I can understand, speak and write Japanese. True, only my understanding is of a high level being able to even understand classical Japanese)
I already knew about the wars in Iraq, Afeghanistan and other countries but I didn't know why because wars are always full of pain and suffering and KILLING. So why would someone WANT pain and suffering? The movie "Zeitgeist: Addendum" gave me the answers(war is business for some corporations) and even a solution for those problems: Jacque Fresco's plan, The Venus Project. So hitsujyunさん will probably be even more confused than me but I think there is one way to get off the confusion: investigation. One must investigate to clear away any doubts. That is the way of the scientific approach to chess after all!! :)
There are many IMPORTANT questions that SEEM absurd. For example, why does someone have to study and get a job? "Oh, because a man must earn his money.", that's what I was told, I don't know about hitsujyunさん. Well, if a man must earn his money studying and then getting a job, what about those that can't pay to go to a good university? Are these the "chosen" ones that are born to not have happiness in their lives?

When in college, why is there always a limited range of disciplines to learn?
"Well, because this is what you should learn to become intelligent and serve the society.", that's what I was told. Isn't it really just to make my head narrower and only think about the subjects that "someone else" wants me to think about.

Why do we learn mathematics, chemistry, biology and other things, and not how to relate to each other or how can we learn mathematics, chemistry, etc... or how we can reduce or even eliminate the poverty all over the world? This looks much more important.

nivaldo さんのコメント...

Sure, if after having studied mathematics, etc... one had time to study the other things such as relationship to one another it would be fine, but as a result of the monetary system, he's forced to devote ALL of his time to the "service" he's doing to society. Summary, he's being a slave. Even if he becomes a scientist, even with a Nobel Prize, he's still a slave making research for pleasure of course but much more for money as that's what keeps him alive! So one can say in one line that "The Monetary System is a slavery system". Jacque Fresco's idea, The Venus Project, frees all people from undesirable work and therefore everybody is free to do whatever he wants WITHOUT thinking about money and other necessities. To do so, he makes the most out of the present state of science and technology. Most people think that the problems are solved by political decisions, but in reality the problems are not political, they are technical. As in Chess, Steinitz published the laws of Positional Chess, but their implementation in the very specific position over the board in front of us is what really solves the problem on that moment not the general laws of Steinitz.

If you're still confused, please download "Zeitgeist: Addendum" and look at the facts yourself. It has subtitles downloadable apart which include 日本語. However its download is apparently available only in .torrent form. But it's officially downloadable for free.
The reason I'm insisting with this subject is that I feel it's really unfair to let people around me stay with the eyes closed (if they are closed) as to how our REAL WORLD really is. My eyes were closed once too. I used to like entertainment very much, but now it all sounds like materialistic garbage to me. To me, for the moment, only The Venus Project, chess (because to me it resembles life in an incredible manner) and human relationship hold a very real meaning. hitsujyunさん, in case you didn't know any of all this, I hope you also become enlightened now. Hmmm...I think I'm better not to say these are my last words, again. I'll still try to comment here, but it'll be in 英語. I hope we will still be in touch. And from now, I hope I can start concentrating more on comments that have to do with chess specifically.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to explain my ideas which are really the ideas of Jacque Fresco that came from his studies about our current global economic system, the monetary system.

また長いコメントをしたんですね。本当にすみません。これからコメントを短くするつもりです。
