The Eight Warriors – Eight huge pine trees growing in the mountains in Taichung Guguan area use their strong root networks to guard the 150m-deep cliff. Attacked by 921 catastrophic earthquakes, and the flooding of 72 and 88, they have not collapsed and win the title of The Eight Warriors. The local Atayal people have always regarded them as their guardian gods.
Atayal people：Where are the Eight Warriors from?
Lydia：These ancient trees – the Eight Warriors, are thousands-year-old souls. For the sake of guarding this piece of land, a whole group of them came together to Earth in the very beginning. Nowadays, due to the environment and natural reasons, only eight of them are remaining.
The Eight Warriors say their souls came from Heaven above. They were chosen to come here.
Mom：Why did cutie come to our home? Does she have any affinity with us ?
Lydia：Cutie says that she has especially come to keep my mom company. She came from a planet where the whole population are rodents. You once took care of them over there, so she came all the way here to accompany you.
Cutie says there are all kinds of rodents on that planet, including some we have never seen before. Some are as big and tall as a child. She said over there everyone can walk with their feet standing up, but they can also bounce.
A few days ago, I went to visit a friend in Taichung. He has a small farm growing organic vegetables in the back yard.
His neighbor raises some chicken friends; the following is the interview with them:
JAS：Lydia, please ask the chicken friends for me, why are they so afraid when they see human beings?
