Pandemic and Divided Imperial Household in Japan.

As I pointed out previously, the turmoil due to pandemic from Wuhan/PRC just reached Tokyo, the capital of Japan. From yesterday evening, Japanese mass media repeatedly report a branch of NTT Data, one of the largest, quasi-state owned IT companies in Japan, in Mita/Tokyo was closed because one of the employees was recognized as patient of Wuhan virus. Tokyo eventually became a “hotspot” of this new disease and caused abruptly panic-like reactions in the Japanese business economy.

The so-called “Rush Hour” in commuters of Tokyo is well known. In Tokyo, Japanese salarymen and -women are forced to ride on them for at least 20-30 minutes (or even much longer. In the worst case, a few hours!) without being seated. This is an old but new type of “Konzentrationslager” in Japan, even though the ordinary people on the street of Japan never regard them as such. Being awfully frustrated, the middle class in Tokyo used to just go out and come back to home without any complaints to GOJ’s infrastructure policy. Now that the first infection case was officially announced as shown above, they become extremely aware of the risk of pandemic. Well, I’m wondering whether you’re still seeking the possibility to hold the forthcoming Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo? (Obviously, IOC and WHO having been intensively discussing this matter, although WHO denies it advised IOC not to postpone or cancel the Olympic Games.)

Furthermore, we have to think even about the worst case in Tokyo, when the Chinese epidemie will provoke a highly political discussion whether the Japanese Imperial Palace shall be relocated to somewhere else “tentatively”. Of course, Their Imperial Majaesties Emperor and Empress of Japan can’t de facto move away from Tokyo, where almost all the political and diplomatic events take place. It’s Their Majesties’ duty to show up in front of the ordinary Japanese citizens suffering from catastrophic events such as great earthquakes and tsunamis. However, this rule isn’t necessarily applied to other members of the Imperial Household, who are also partly de facto symbolizing the unity of the Japanese nation, but NOT the Emperor as such right now.
AKIHITO, the former Emperor of Japan and his second son, His Imperial Highness Prince AKISHINO, need not to follow the rule and move to where they wish to stay and live, at least, theoretically. Now, imagine they and their families will soon move to the ancient and traditional capital of Japan, Kyoto, where the rather authentic Imperial Palace is located. According to my deep throat in this field, the Imperial Palace in Kyoto is recently renovated with ultramodern bulletproof glasses. Taking into account the fact that the former Emperor AKIHITO is still quite popular and well respected in the Japanese society, this will be a great headache to those who are supportive to the current Emperor and Empress closely related the British and Dutch Royal Families.

Welcome back to the second era of divided Imperial Household in Japan. The Japanese once experienced a period of the Northern and Southern Courts from 1336 to 1392, when the brave and legendary Emperor GODAIGO attempted the restoration of direct governance by Emperors. The situation is now completely different from the period, however, I’m quite confident we’re about to face another period of the divided Imperial Household. This time, it’ll be called “the period of the Eastern and Western Dynasties” due to various possible affairs such as the spread of catastrophic pandemic such as the current one. Keep eyes on Kyoto where a secret strategy will be soon realized. Stay tuned.

Outbreak of “TOKYO Virus” and Le Chatelier’s Principle

Expansion of the coronavirus from Wuhan never stops. As we all expected, the number of patients is steadily increasingly, and nobody knows when it’ll be fully controlled. And yesterday, the entire global community was shocked by wires reporting two gentlemen from Japan and US were dead due to this coronavirus in Chinese local hospitals. This shows us that “this time is different”, because another case of SARS didn’t cause such a shock wave to other nations than the Chinese.
From my viewpoint, the western type of democracy and liberalism just harm the technical control of the disease control, as we see in the dramatic situation in Japan. Japan, my mother country, proudly proclaimed she will hold the forthcoming Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo (and other local cities) in 2020. Nevertheless, all the incidents related to this pandemic taking place in Japan clearly show the Government of Japan is totally unprepared for unprecedented events such as pandemic so far. It doesn’t have planned any appropriate risk management in this regard and know how to react, while Prime Minister Shinzo ABE even announced even all the Chinese tourists are in principle welcome to Japan. He only prioritizes economic profit and interest he’ll be able to get from the Olympic Games, on which he can theoretically expand his own political power in the local democracy. That’s just crazy and unbelievable as well.

The Japanese economy still suffering from the collapse of its bubble phase after 1990 has been making huge profit from massive tourism of Chinese (rich but ordinary) people even to local cities in the country. They used to pay very short visits to Japan by mega-cruise ships we often see in ports of West-Japan (particularly in Kyushu-region). But now, all the poor Chinese tourists on board of mega-cruise ships bound for Japan were stopped because of quarantine, and it dramatically turned out that tens of the passengers were infected with Wuhan Virus. Since GOJ has, as mentioned above, no single systematic plan for biohazard in such a scale, the passengers are being forced just to wait on board, which can be described as if it were a new type of “death camp”.
From around 2010, my institute, Institute for International Strategy and Information Analysis, Inc. (IISIA), publicly announced a message in its forecast that the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo/2020. Even in such an unprecedented situation we’re facing, some people still tend to criticize that the IISIA is spreading a “conspiracy theory” without any proof. Well, at this stage, I’m honestly asking myself, “Guys, are you crazy as well?”. Unless WHO, an arm of United Nations, will make it public to withdraw its classification of the coronavirus as “emergency to the entire world”, the Olympic Games must be cancelled in accordance with relevant regulations of IOC. Having said that, I’m proud of the authenticity of my own institute’s future scenario in this regard. With original sense and firm wisdom towards our common future, the institute will continue to anticipate the very near future of the global community suffering from various unknown risks one after another.

Tokyo_Olympic_Games2020_1
Of course, the ABE administration in Japan will try very hard to make the Olympic Games happen by giving huge pressures to organizations and entities related to this matter. I’m already quite sure GOJ will be instructed by Shinzo ABE to do the politics, and lead WHO to rethink in terms of the declaration of emergency with Japanese style of soft power in the postwar era, called “money”. While Shinzo ABE will succeed to do so, the Wuhan Virus will be treated very soon as if nothing had happened. But this is the real beginning of the end story. Even before mass media reported the outbreak of pandemic in Wuhan, numerous tourists from the region visited Japan since the last autumn, when the virus is actually suspected to have caused the disease for the first time. And the coronavirus is famous for its gradual transformation all the top scientists can never fully catch up with. Despite a public announcement of the pandemic eradication by WHO, the transformation will never stop particularly in Japan, where the tourism for the Olympic Games will be flourishing again with a huge number of foreign tourists including the Chinese. At the last stage, a new type of virus in Tokyo would be discovered in May or June of this year, and the second wave of pandemic’s outbreak from the Japanese metropole will become disastrous for both the Olympic Games and the future prospect of Japan’s society and economy.
Now, you might be wondering whether we still need to discuss “Pax Japonica” in this regard. My answer is “YES”. According to Le Chaterlier’s Principle, Japan has to be suppressed before she will find a way for breakthrough of not only herself but also other parts of the globe, which will face the same issues, problems and risks one after another. Don’t forget the established principle of the human civilization and keep eyes on what’s being taking place in Japan, which will surely give you lots of hints and ideas to reach the next stage of our common global society. Stay tuned.

This Is NOT the End of Story. What’s Next?

OnBoard_202002

Yesterday, I’ve got an amazing message from my staff in Tokyo, which I had awaited enthusiastically. The message I’ve got on board from Sapporo to Osaka said the Student Council of College of Liberal Arts at the University of Tokyo officially decided to invite me as lecturer of self-organized but acknowledged seminar for the forthcoming summer semester in 2020. 14 years have already passed, since I left my alma mater with my last words to students. In my seminar, I’ll try to both theoretically and practically explain how to understand methodology of forecasting, upon which young and talented students at the top university in Japan should base their leadership, self-management and innovation for all. In the midst of current turmoil in the global community, it’s the knowledge and experience on this methodology, or “information literacy (=open source intelligence combined with future scenario making and leadership for innovation)” according to our institute’s methodology that really matter to the younger generation.

As I’ve been predicted from the very beginning of last (not this) year, escalation of horrifying Wuhan Virus never stops after I posted my last column onto this weblog. The number of dead due to this virus, which even PRC government officially admitted and announced, is steadily increasing. Particularly in Europe, not only Chinese but all the Asian people are being gradually rejected to stay there, which sounds step by step “xenophobic”. Many countries take much more draconic measures to control the spreading virus by cutting off cross-border routes to PRC (Russia), and isolating all the civil passengers from Wuhan who are evacuated by official flights (US). As far as I correctly know, Japan is the only country which doesn’t hesitate to make a public announcement that even Chinese tourists are still “welcome” into the Japanese territory. The Government of Japan is obviously unprepared to combat such a disaster we’re now facing. Its reactions and measures are too late and not well calculated, which clearly shows to the public that there is NO future scenario for appropriate risk management within the GOJ.
To make sure, I herewith underline this is NOT the end of the whole story. As I wrote down last time, this is just the very beginning. A series of rather financial and economic crisis will follow very soon, with which pandemic and other natural disasters such as megatyphoon will finally cause total change of our mindset and brain system. In the political, financial and economic realities, we, the Japanese, will soon see the following phenomena in our society:

*The Summer Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo will get canceled due to pandemic. Sooner or later, IOC will make the final decision public accordingly, in collaboration with WHO. But make sure not only Wuhan Virus but other new types (“variant virus”. Tokyo Virus??) could be rather paid attention to.
*Real estate market in Tokyo will hereby collapse or lead to selling climax, since major investors originally planned to their real estates only after the Olympic Games.
*Oil price will rocket because “physical war” will get started based on Trump’s ME peace plan which was not unanimously accepted in the region. The trend will be accelerated since oil producing countries make effort to lead oil price higher by production cut.
*Facing the new “oil shock”, Japan’s economy will immediately get into “stagflation”, which will force Bank of Japan to stop purchase of various assets (“Quantitative Easing”).
*All these crisis and disasters will forcibly lead to Japan’s default, which will trigger the beginning of “Gnosticistic revolution” of the human civilization. According to our institute’s tentative conclusion, this is exactly why UN needs a new, comprehensive agenda (UN 75) apart from “SDGs”, which is regarded as obsolete.

What is “Gnosticistic revolution”? Why from Japan? To answer your legitime questions, our institute recently published our latest future scenario entitled “Tochter aus Elysium”. At this juncture, only Japanese version is available (Sorry). However, if all of you, dear friends and colleagues abroad, kindly request, we’ll work on its English version. Please leave your comments and requests in this regard. In advance, thanks for your kind attention.

Why Could I Forecast Outbreak of Pandemic in Advance?

PRC government just announced to ban tours of Chinese tourists to abroad from 27 January, 2020. To save the nation’s reputation, it must be inevitable to take such a draconic measure as any other western liberal-democratic countries may never execute. However, from our institute’s viewpoint, accelerated expansion of the pandemic can’t be never stopped and will soon lead us to realize we’ll have even reached another dimension all the humankind didn’t experience yet since the previous historic pandemic such as Spanish Flu in 1918.

Since 2012, our institute repeatedly warned its clients of possible outbreak of overwhelming pandemic, while all of us urgently need to dramatically enhance immune strength. And last year, our institute published future scenarios saying “moment of the truth” in this regard will reach us within the time framework between 2020 and 2022. And now that we’re experiencing never-stopping expansion of Wuhan Virus from PRC, we all understand our institute’s analysis is correct, of which other parts should be shown in accordance with public needs in the global community. In short, it’s not “Wuhan Virus” per se, but this complex of risks and disasters that really matter.

WuhanVirus_1
One Japanese reader claimed in his twitter this outbreak of Virus from Wuhan must be “man-made”, because our Japanese institute had known it in advance and even mentioned in future scenarios. Even though I can’t simply follow his logic, I can’t help from pointing out we just have to change our ordinary attitude to always blame something negative for other’s behavior. Regardless of some articles with a taste of “conspiracy theory” in terms of Wuhan Virus, our institute doesn’t think it’s PRC governmental bodies that shall be accused of their abuse of their outstanding biomedical capacity. Rather our own human immune strength must be paid attention to, because various significant factors such as radiation effects of some major nuclear disasters, too-much prioritized digitization like “5G fever” and negative effects of climate change continuously damage our human immune system irreversibly. That automatically leads us to lose self-healing power against unknown diseases in everyday life.
Anyway, based on analysis results by unique mixture of methodologies including even “adaptive unconscious”, our institute underlines the following two basic trends of the human society till 2025, which will be inevitably combined with each other:
– Loss of two “securities” in nations state. Default domino of sovereign debt to be kicked off by Government of Japan will soon make nation states impossible to guarantee “social security”. Simultaneously, they can’t tap sufficient budget necessary to defend their borders. National security will be endangered.

– Unprecedented natural disasters and pandemic. Some major natural disasters such as unprecedented earthquakes and typhoons rooted in negative effects of over-developed human technologies, which scientists can’t and don’t want to prove to the public so far, will take place one after another in the same time period. Due to almost same reasons, outbreak of some more pandemics with even more lethality will attack all the human beings on the globe.

The point is conventional sciences can’t be well-prepared for these drastic developments and never predicts them correctly. However, our institute already knows that will take place without exception in the global community, which will totally change our mindset, behavior and the entire social structure as well at least from 2022. And because we’ll be urged to combat all the risks and disasters with collapse of governmental bodies due to default domino, we’ll immediately work on reform of United Nations to make it “version 2.0.” with its own financial capacity based on international solidarity levy. That’ll be, of course, total change of the global governance structure as a whole.
Now, you may wonder how our institute, IISIA, could reach this conclusion methodologically. While capability of major scientists is obviously limited, how can the institute prove such a forecast’s authenticity scientifically? Well, just forget the word “science”. There IS another way to obtain “wisdom” which means “human sense to vividly anticipate even the very near future with awareness of both past and now”. What is it? At this stage, I wanna tell you it’s closely related with our inevitable future “Pax Japonica”. Step by step, with your permission, I’ll tell you here the detail later on. Stay tuned.

 

Once the City Moves, It Shakes the Entire World.

Kagoshima_202001

Recently, our institute is checking feasibility of the project to penetrate into PRC market, while posting some self-made short movies with Chinese subtitles to popular video sharing site such as “Bilibili”. Even though my staffs in charge enthusiastically work on it, initial reactions of the audience in Chinese mainland were awfully negative. They can’t simply understand our institute is a think tank on commercial base, and doubt our authenticity. One of them even commented by asking himself, “Are you really a think tank?”.
For the ordinary Chinese, it must be just difficult to understand a private company is totally independent and does private business, since all the traditional “think tanks” in PRC are entirely state-owned without freedom of speech.
Having said that, I’m extremely afraid you’re also wondering who we are and what our institute has achieved so far as a professional think tank dedicated to make future risk/strategic scenarios. Here you are with the following PV of our institute with English subtitles. Please check it. (For Chinese friends and colleagues, please wait a little bit more by we’ll finish translation of the same PV into Chinese. Stay tuned).

Just a brief comment to current situations of the global market and geopolitical risks. Because almost all the parts of the global community are connected with each other by financial capitalism, of which the City of London the very core is, the entire world will be inevitably shaken from the first half of forthcoming February this year. As soon as Boris Johnson will succeed to officially declare the beginning of BREXIT on 31 January, nobody can’t stop the City of London to relocate itself to other appropriate places. But the question is “WHERE”. According to our institute’s future scenario to be published very soon, one of the best candidates in this regard is TOKYO, the capital of Japan. In short, “Good-bye, London. Hello , Tokyo”. Maybe, you don’t feel you fully agree with me right now. Nevertheless, please check out media reports a few years ago, which say TOKYO signed an official MoU with the City of London to deepen their mutual cooperation. Together with another big candidate “SHANGHAI”, East Asia is about to its new face as the new center of global finance. Don’t miss it. If you have any questions and comments, don’t hesitate to send them to me. In advance, I highly appreciate it.

Invisible “Weltuhr” and Breeze of Hanoi.

Hanoi_January2020_1

To begin, I just wanna make sure there is an invisible “Weltuhr (world-clock)” in the global community, which keeps on ticking. What our institutes researches and visualizes is this invisible “Weltuhr”, which is unconsciously shared but not explained as such to the public by western global leaders.
For example, when you watch what’s happening between US and Iran, it’s extremely clear these two powers obviously hesitate to kick off a total war while declaring it in accordance with conventional international law. Officially, Donald Trump announced self-restraint just after Iran’s retaliation by massive missile attacks. Simultaneously, Iran conveyed her message to not US but Japan, saying her retaliation against US was done enough, and never intends to do much more necessarily.
Well, don’t get confused right now. We need to stick to imagine the invisible “Weltuhr” and easily find out the date of the global community’s next step was already declared when Boris Johnson’s government in UK fixed the ultimate date of BREXIT in the end of this month (January, 2020), as soon as his party won the previous general election in December, 2019. Having viewed the election’s results, our institute analyzed for its clients the decisive “sea change” of global community/market will take place from February, 2020, and warned them to get prepared for that. And now, you see we’re correct. Everybody feels something significant will happen very soon, but never happens right NOW. And I’m wondering whether you can hear together with me the invisible “Weltuhr” is ticking and ticking.
Just make the whole story simple. Donald Trump isn’t financially capable of starting a war of full scale, while USG has accumulated its sovereign debt overwhelmingly. Someone else has to pay for the sake of USG, whenever a war was officially declared and executed. Who will get involved in this regard?
That’s exactly why Japan is asked to dispatch her destroyers to Middle East, while Prime Minister Shinzo ABE will be welcomed as official guest in mid-January in the same region. Someone in charge of accounting and payment as well shall be feel “sense of participation”. To understand what I mean to say herewith, just imagine what happened after the Gulf war, when Japan was forced to pay all the bill of US military forces due to the war. Again, don’t forget to keep watching the invisible “Weltuhr” ticking towards the very beginning of February, 2020, and get fully prepared for whatever will take place at that moment.

Hanoi_January2020_4
Last but not the least, this week, I was given an opportunity to pay a visit to Vietnam for the first time in my life. While our institute succeeded to sign an official agreement for cooperation with Fulbright University in Vietnam, the first ever private prominent university in Saigon, regardless of all the mess we faced on the street of the city, I really enjoyed together with my staff in charge “Breeze of Hanoi”. As practitioner of Japanese traditional but secret “old-Shintoism”, I used to check how I spontaneously feel (extremely good or awfully bad) whenever I reach a new destination in- and outside Japan. In not only Asia but all the other nations including US and Europe, there is always a district or place in every country, where the local power is located, while I also feel very, very good there. Take an example of Beijing in PRC. Despite heavy air pollution in the entire city, the breeze you can feel on an “Imperial Sacrificial Altar” in Temple of Heaven is totally different from the air and climate around there. It’s also the case of governmental district in Hanoi, Vietnam, where you can enjoy beautiful streets with various old buildings of the local governmental bodies in French colonial style. As soon as I arrived there, it spontaneously occurred to me why western powers such as France and US made extreme effort to invade and occupy the country and the city of Hanoi.

Hanoi_January2020_2

In addition, I automatically understood why the people of Vietnam could win the war against the largest power of the world. “Well, we Vietnamese are open by nature and always look forward”, all the intellectuals we met this time in Vietnam said. Their outstanding self-confidence is obviously being natured by this extremely refreshing “Breeze of Hanoi”. On board back to Tokyo, Japan, I couldn’t help from thinking about irreversible devastation of the Japanese in this regard. This is, from my viewpoint, the very beginning of the way to “Pax Japonica”, which will be soon kicked off with collapse of the Japanese governmental bodies both financially and physically. Stay tuned.

Ghosn and Iran/US: Implications for Pax Japonica.

To my surprise, many of my foreign friends, who kindly checked out my latest post, were extremely supportive to Carlos Ghosn’s illegal adventure to escape from Japanese jurisdiction. Well, “freedom of speech” is guaranteed even here in Japan, and everybody may think of what he/she wanna. However, I herewith wanna make clear the following one thing: Japan has been a country of “safe haven” at least so far particularly for foreigners, who were capable of behaving as “Gaijin(外人, etranger)” and taking advantage of being so. There are plenty of illegal immigrants in Japan, who are de facto allowed to stay here. Take an example of City of Kawaguchi, or “WARABISTAN”, where you can encounter with so many Kurds and other immigrants from Middle East. Nobody knows how many percent of these people followed relevant regulations while entering the Japanese border.

Well, Ghosn was not an immigrant but invited as CEO of NISSAN, the second largest automaker in Japan. Nevertheless, according to the golden rule since the Roman Empire, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”, he should have (at least) pretended as if he respected the local rules and customs including low level of local wage. If I were he, I had never demanded high salary as he earned previously. Instead, I try very hard to make the people praise and respect me and eventually say, “Let’s build up a memorial foundation as our sincere gratitude for his extraordinary achievement”. The “memorial foundation” should be located and registered in Kyoto, where you can find out lots of joint loop holes for Japanese and French establishment to “wash the money”. If you can’t understand what I mean to say by saying that, ask Jacques Chirac, former President of France, why he repeatedly visited Kyoto. Having said that, from my viewpoint, Ghosn is never worthy of sympathy because of his obvious ignorance on the very deep root of the Japanese.

As I correctly pointed out beforehand (in my Japanese posts), a former member of US army intelligence unit was allegedly involved in this Ghosn’s “gone affair”. Based on Japan-US alliance, US may override Japanese jurisdiction, if needed. Ghosn & associates must have abused this loop hole of Japanese regulation. Well, this is very, very bad and violation of the post-war structure in Japan, which US made extreme efforts to maintain so far.

While Japanese mass media mainly focus on Ghosn’s “gone affair” every day, global mass media report the escalation of Iran/US military conflict step by step. Khamenei and Trump enthusiastically keep on their “war of words” while commanding their own military forces to fight against each other but only in a limited scale. The former even publicly announced, “This is a declaration of war from US”. Now, you may wonder why a genuine “war” hasn’t broken out yet regardless of these circumstances.
From the viewpoint of our institute, it’s not the war as physical clash of military forces but two other elements that are prioritized here by global leadership. The one is closely related with the imminent climax of the (lasting) financial crisis since 2008. Western experts used to comment, “We already recovered from the financial crisis in 2008”. No, this is not correct. Think about the continuous quantitative easing central bankers still pursue all over the world. If the crisis had come to an end, how come they’re still pouring so much money to the market?
To do so, they are steadily forced to prepare their own money. Just by printing money? NO. Their money has to be backed by credible assets such as gold bars (AU). In short, to keep on executing QEs, central bankers frequently sell their AU asset to the market, which is however limited according to the so-called Washington Agreement. How can they be de facto released from such a strict rule of international community?
In the financial world, when there is a rule, there must be a loop hole. In this case of Washington Agreement, BIS gets involved to save the poor central bankers. BIS gathers a part of AU assets from central banks and lend money to them, while selling it to the market discretely on behalf of central bankers. And the point is, whenever they tend to do so, geopolitical risks are to be highlighted which triggers off skyrocket of gold market. In this situation, we don’t need a comprehensive clash of military forces as genuine war. What we need is only a small clash of armed forces and “war of words” through social media as well. That’s exactly what we are facing right now in the name of Iran/US conflict in Middle East. Currently, the global gold market soars. Well, now, you can grasp what the global leadership actually wants to do.

gold_30_day_o_usd_x_20200105

Furthermore, we should pay attention to the fact the Ghosn’s “gone affair” simultaneously happens with this Iran/US conflict. Due to these two events, Japan inevitably gets involved in Middle East affairs step by step. Founders’ families of Japanese prominent big manufacturers have in fact very close personal relationship with Royal Families in this region, and the former even used to deposit their huge assets to the latter’s account in safe havens. This is, of course, very, very bad for leaders of other wester nations, and the structure should be destroyed, they think. As I previously touched upon, all the global leaders with sufficient level are quite aware that not their nations but Japan will lead the forthcoming total change of the world in the name of “Pax Japonica”. To accelerate all the relevant process, they just give more and more pressure to the Japanese, so that something totally new and innovative will abruptly emerge from Japan. Besides that, they make defense against the possibility that Japan will expand “Pax Japonica” only at their own will without any consent of other nations.
Moment of the truth will come when the first destroyer of Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) will reach the sea near Middle East in the beginning of February 2020.

Don’t forget to watch all these incidents and events holistically. Only by doing so, you may anticipate the very near future and acquire “wisdom” in the meaning of Kabbalah. Stay tuned.

Carlos Ghosn and Tochter aus Elysium.

Former Nissan Motor Chariman Carlos Ghosn leaves the Tokyo Detention House

Carlos Ghosn, former CEO of NISSAN, the second largest automobile manufacturer in Japan, has “gone”. According to media reports particularly from Lebanon, he forfeited bail and illegally escaped from Japanese jurisdiction. Being inspired by this unpredendeted event and challenge for the Japanese, I’m kicking off the second round of my essays in English you’re now finding out and kindly reading.

Previously, I’ve given a series of opportunities to show up and even speak out to the audience in global conferences and meetings of prominent thinkers all over the world. Recently, my institute joined a caucus of world-class think tanks organized by University of Pennsylvania and actively participated in its several meetings, e.g., in Bangkok and Rio de Janeiro. Nevertheless, the experiences I could gather there are unfortunately rather disappointing, since nobody talked aboud the “hardcore” of issues we, all the human beings, are about to face in the very, very near future.

This is exactly why I now begin to write this short essay to you, members of global community,  while stopping my popular video essays to the Japanese audience. The issue and its “hardcore” I herewith wanna point out are never limited to the Japanese. And for me, the one thing is extremely clear: It will be Japan that will be forced to overcome this unprecendented hardship at first in the human society, even though they will be just “forced” to do so by the surroundings and foreign powers. The Japanese won’t be able to initiate this process to reshape the development of the human beings by themselves. Never ever.  Being extraordinarily pressured by the outside, something most significnat will turn out to change the mindset of the Japanese society totally and irreversibly. As you might feel at this juncture, this will be the very beginning of my thesis, “Pax Japaponica”, the human era when “Being-Japanese” will be followed by other nations without any exceptions.

From my viewpoint, the case “Ghosn has gone.” just verifies my theory once more. This affair abruptly gives extreme pressure upon the Japanese in the following two ways: Obviously, Ghosn could flee by relying on a overwhelming power which even the Government of Japan may not oppose to. From now on, the poor Japanese have to discuss the old but inevitable question, “Do we, the Japanese, really have our own sovereignty?”Taking another example of Guantanamo, we soon understand Japanese (local) airports are being used by US intelligence agencies beyond Japanese regulations. Why not for Carlos Ghosn, savior of NISSAN?? The second question the Japanese have to tackle is closely related to both the local stock market and national economy as a whole. C. Ghosn, of whom nobody can’t force to shut the mouth, is about to attack the “premodernity” of the Japanese political and judicial systems. That is, of course, very, very bad for Japanese prominent listed companies, because corporate governance in every single one of them will be thoroughly checked again by investors. “Every man hits his faults”, they say. All the investigations even backed by both mass and social media will lead us to find out its the Japanese way of everything in the post-war era since 1952 that has harmed the Japanese not to follow the western type of “rule of law”.

Being highly pressured by foreign powers, we, the Japanese, are about to ask ourselves what to do next. In this serial essay, I wanna try to figure it out and show you step by step (every week) how to proceed. However, before getting into details of the discussion, I simply wanna make clear one thing. The Japanese already know the “answer” both instinctively and unconsciously, while they love to listen to (or even sing by themselves) the 4th movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 9th symphony.

Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
Brüder, überm Sternenzelt
Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen.
Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
Such’ ihn überm Sternenzelt!
Über Sternen muß er wohnen.

Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
Brüder, überm Sternenzelt
Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen.
Seid umschlungen,
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
Freude, schöner Götterfunken
Tochter aus Elysium,
Freude, schöner Götterfunken, Götterfunken.

Extreme pressure given opon the Japanese will soon lead them to find out where both “ultimate creator (Schöpfer)” and “dauther Elysion” live and can be reached. This time, the Japanese, the selected nation,  will solve this question by understanding their traditional code written by Katakana (カタカナ) word by word and their traditional but historically erased deity called Seoritsu-hime (瀬織津姫). Yes, “Tochter aus Elysium” is Seoritsu-hime who can bind this world and the “other” world (even beyond the astrophysical “universe”.

Stay tuned and see you next week.

On 10 November 2019, I was given a great opportunity to actively participate in this year’s Asia Pacific Think Tank Summit in Bangkok, which was co-organized by UNESCAP and University of Pennsylvania. Again, I pointed out the acute possibility Japan is about to default in the very, very near future, which will trigger total change of the human society as a whole.

Next month, TTCSP of University of Pennsylvania will hold a much larger summit of think tank gathering in Rio de Janeiro, where I’ll be invited as well. My institute activity to make the people understand how to prepare for the age of “Passover” both physically and psychologically never stops. Stay tuned.
