“Parasite”, in biology, means an organism that lives in or on another species and benefits by deriving nutrients at others’ expense. After parasitizing, it creates a new lifestyle. Even though it’s still a parasitic form, the parasite and host need each other. People need space to live, space needs people to add activities. That’s how it works. People come and go as time goes by. I wish that ten years in the future, or even thirty or sixty years, the pure lifestyle of Tainan can be preserved. As the area is growing more and more mature, the “Parasitic Jungle” can grow as well.
