The Chinese brush painting and philosophy thought in Arrival (film)

The highlight is the design of the alien language with the aid of Chinese culture. One typical nature of science fiction films is that it is very burning for the original authors, the film makers, and the audiences. Without sound and image, sometimes the original works are more unreadable. Take Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang for an example, in the story a nonlinear time language thinking model is constructed. The story about the communication between humans and aliens focuses on the most basic thing: Language. In the writing, the language of the alien seems to be a living creature.
