In the last few years, the cultrue of the space-time crossing sweep the world, which caused the phenomenon of the space-time crossing in publishing area and film and television domain and got mixed notices. By deducing the phenomenon of the space-time crossing, this paper looks for the trace of space-time crossing in Chinese ancient books and tales. Because Strange Tales from a Lonely Studio is the representative of ancient space-time crossing stories, this paper takes this book as an example to study the phenomenon of the space-time crossing,and focus on the discussing the relationship between the phenomenon and traditional thought in the Folk Culture.In the introduction,I firstly introduce the folk attribute of Strange Tales from a Lonely Studio, list several story types of space-time crossing in Ancient China, make clear that the three elements of the space-time crossing is the chance of creation, the space-time crossing and the main event,which is taken as background of this paper.In the text, I firstly analyse the particularity in the physiological state, time,place and channels when the space-time crossing occurs, and investigate the folk thought which the cause these phenomena. Secondly, I analyse the time-space Construction when the space-time crossing occurs by researching spatial overlapping, time difference and Spatial Difference in size and appearance, and investigate the folk thought and religious thinking mode which the cause these phenomena. At last, by incoding the main events during the pace-time crossing, I found that the space-time crossing for the space-time crossing is the pursuit of happiness, and the essence of the space-time crossing is a special spiritual compensation by people.the phenomenon of the space-time crossing accumulates profound folk culture in Ancient China and has become a dream for thousands of years for the Chinese people,which is not only a Cultural Choice that accord with Folklore Traditions,but also an active effect for people’s pursuit of happiness through Suffering. By comparison, the cultrue of the space-time crossing in nowadays abandons its profound folk culture so that it becomes no longer a cultrue with folk character and Cultural Charm which can last for years.
