    As a region with a significant agricultural industry, the ritual theatre of East Asia played an important role in the early drama of its origins. In addition, the trajectory of the early agricultural and religious cultural interactions in East Asian countries was decisive in shaping their national cultural roots, so exploring the different developments of ritual theatre among different countries on the basis of the history of early cultural interactions can help to provide a more explicit understanding of the cultural development of ritual theatre in East Asia. This research explores the trajectories of Nuo theatre in China and Noh theatre in Japan, broadly in terms of both agriculture and religion, summarises the similarities and differences between the developmental routes of Nuo and Noh theatre, and analyses the causes of the contemporary phenomenon of Nuo and Noh theatre moving along different developmental routes.

    Marion's painting philosophy primarily addresses the dialectical unity between the visible and the invisible, suggesting that neither can be deemed more "real" than the other. Instead, they act as mutual validations of each other's existence. The concept of visibility is constrained by human perceptions and physical limitations, often leading individuals to see only what aligns with their desires and past experiences. This selective perception underscores the inherent limitations or "void" within visibility.Marion quotes in her book: "Fire in water, divinity in humanity, paradoxes arise from the intervention of the visible in the realm of the invisible." This highlights why philosophical discussions on painting inevitably involve introspection. Artistic creation is about transforming the visible into the invisible and then manifesting the invisible as visible. Throughout this transformation, individual consciousness merges with collective human consciousness, allowing art to preserve its uniqueness within the broader narrative of art history and to establish its own value. This personal perspective can also be termed as one's gaze, a human attribute adept at self-justification and pattern creation within one's cognition. Through vision, we acknowledge the 'void of visibility,' which becomes a dense, chaotic mass at the moment of observation, generating an 'invisible void'—the brain organizes the visible and extends it into the invisible, blending the unseen into the seen.

    When people are lovelorn, they need others' understanding. Once when my friend was in pain, he even hurt himself. He often quarrelled with his parents and friends. He said that he didn't want to do this, but he was always full of sad emotions, which made him out of control. Later, it got worse and he even hurt himself. He said he knew it was wrong, but he didn't know what to do. We made a lot of phone calls. I could feel all his negative emotions. I tried to take him out to climb mountains, watch movies, dine at good restaurants to kill time. But I could feel that he was pretending to be happy, so as not to waste my time. What I took him to do can only make him escape from sadness for a short time, so I have been trying to find ways to help him, let him release these emotions, and find some suitable ways to make him better face his life.
