The pseudonymous name WǎngLiǎng has been mentioned in “Zhuang Zi” and “HuáiNánZǐ”. As said in HuáiNánZǐ, Plankton does not know what to seek while WǎngLiǎng not knowing where to go. There is a dialogue between WǎngLiǎng and shadow in “Zhuang Zi”. Shadow depends on the entity and WǎngLiǎng is shadow of shadow. WǎngLiǎng in Land was born in 1911. His ancestors came to Taipei (Taiwan) from Fujian(China). He built boats, planted vegetables and shouldered rice in Shezi Island. During World War II, in the uniform of Japanese officer , he returned to Fujian, holding the gun but asking the Fujian family to run away and stay alive to have their own son. WǎngLiǎng’s granddaughter went back to his land after he died many years. The old man planting vegetables does not own her grandfather’s land but he invited her into his hut built by a waste container to have tea.
