God-Given Gold in Japan and The Americas

"In The Still Of The Night" A Spirit Dropped By

God-Given Gold in Japan and The Americas

Before 1492, when Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas, a total amount of gold possessed by Europeans was only less than "20 tons."

With gold in the Central and South Americas falling into hands of Europeans, the global output of gold significantly increased, specifically, to about "5,000 tons" between the end of the 15th century to the middle of the 19th century.

Japan produced "255 tons" of gold between the 8th century and the 16th century; "100 tons" between the 17th century and the middle of the 19th century; and "1,250 tons" between the end of the 19th century and the end of the 20th century.

The total amount of gold mankind has ever mined is about 100,000 tons, 1.6% of which has been produced in Japan.

* * *

As you see, till Europeans got gold in the Americas, Japan had produced or possessed ten times or more gold than all Europe had.

Therefore, the report by Marco Polo about gold-rich Japan around the 13th century was not so inaccurate, since Japan actually exported gold to China in those years.

Japan had gold enough to buy any necessary cultural products from Western countries when it opened the door to the world in the late 19th century.

However, almost no elites in the U.S. and Europe, including prominent economists and politicians, seem to know this fact and its significance.
* * *

Kunio Yanagita (, a prominent literary person in Japan, reported a "folk story" like the following in his book published in 1930:

"Once upon a time, there lived a poor, honest, but hardworking young man deep in a mountain. He was living on making and selling charcoal.

One day, a beautiful young lady of a noble family in Kyoto came to his humble house.

She said to the poor charcoal burner that she had received a revelation from the statue of the Goddess of Kannon in the prominent Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto; the Goddess of Kannon told her to marry the poor, honest, but hardworking charcoal burner living deep in the mountain.

Then, the noble young lady asked the poor charcoal burner to allow her to live together in his house.

The poor charcoal burner replied that though he was happy to marry her, he had not enough rice, namely staple diet, for the decent dinner of the day for himself and his new wife

The noble young wife understood it and took out two gold coins from her purse, saying that he only had to go down to a town and buy rice for them with these coins.

So, the poor charcoal burner went out, walking down the mountain along a mountain current. When he came to a deep pool of the current, he found two mandarin ducks on water surface. He stopped and threw the gold coins at the birds that narrowly avoided the attack and flew away. The two gold coins sank deep in water.

The poor charcoal burner, knowing not what to do, came back to his house where his noble young wife was waiting.

When the poor husband told her that he had tried to get two mandarin ducks for her by throwing the two gold coins at them in vain, she got startled especially as she found that her poor husband did not understand what value those gold coins had.

So, the noble young wife kindly and politely explained to her poor husband that a gold coin was treasure in this world and he had done a matter of regret, since the two gold coins could have bought a lot of rice, fish, and birds for the two.

On the contrary, her poor husband got startled, saying that he had never come to think that the two gold coins were so valuable, since such coin-like stones were lying about all over a valley behind his humble house.

The noble young wife again got startled; then the couple went out to the valley to see if those stones were truly gold. They were all gold.

Anyhow, they collected all of the gold stones and piled them up all around their humble house, knowing not what to do with them specifically.

Thenafter many people came to sell goods to and also to work for the couple. Their house got prosperous. The couple built a temple for the Goddess of Kannon in the mountain. Later on, the couple had the sweetest baby girl who grew up and came up to Kyoto and married a noble man. Hence, the once-poor husband came to be called "Charcoal Burner Millionaire."
* * *

Without gold Europeans exploited from Central and South Americas, they could not develop their society and build infrastructure for future progress that led to the Industrial Revolution.

In an extreme explanation, Europeans success depended on gold from Central and South Americas in addition to slaves from Africa.

But, in another extreme explanation, Japan's success depended only on its gold and its hardworking people in addition to natural piety and modesty the so-called Christians have traditionally so coveted.

Being European or European American might mean feeling conviction of the said sin.

But, being Japanese might mean being proud of the said justice.

Truly Gold reveals truth about the peoples and their civilizations as God wishes.

(So, good girls and golden girls, you don't have to be a beautiful young lady of a noble family. But, you have to find a kind of poor charcoal burner who has accumulated a great amount of gold in Heaven, for God might throw some of the gold down to the world, especially, at his humble residence.

Then have a nice weekend; take a good rest; and be poor or noble!)

Top Leaders, Super-Couples, and the Working Poor

"Great Pretender" as if Fleming's left-hand rule

Top Leaders, Super-Couples, and the Working Poor

Ms. Hiroko Kuniya of NHK this Thursday night presented Mr. David K. Shipleran, an American Pulitzer Prized author who wrote "The Working Poor: Invisible In America, 2004."

As it is a 30-minute TV program, Ms. Kuniya's interview with Mr. Shipleran could not fully cut the Gordian knot or satisfactorily hit between the eyes, but it well got straight to the point of globalization of economy.

This Wednesday, in Japan's Congress called the Diet, Prime Minister Mr. Shinzo Abe ( confronted the leader of the opposition party, the Democratic Party of Japan, Mr. Ichiro Ozawa ( in the official "face-to-face debate between party leaders."

The tow top leaders in Japan should have discussed "The Working Poor: Invisible In Japan, 2007."

The debate, conducted for 45 minutes with national broadcasting, was somehow conventional and not breathtaking. Hence, Mr. Hiroshige Seko, the Advisor to the Prime Minister on Public Relations, wrote in his personal blog that Mr. Abe has just won (
* * *

Yes, I am also interested in "In an Uncertain World: Tough Choices from Wall Street to Washington" Mr. Robert E. Rubin and Mr. Jacob Weisberg wrote.

But, I found that Mr. Rubin seemed not to clearly understand difference between Japan and Latin American countries while he was in one of the most powerful office in the U.S. Government. Mr. Rubin looks like thinking that as Japan succeeded, Latin American countries should have succeeded; or as Latin American countries failed, Japan should have failed.
* * *

Princess Diana could not advance her relationships with an Egyptian nephew of Mr. Adnan Khashoggi, a Saudi billionaire arms merchant.

However, Mr. Amartya Sen ( married Ms. Emma Rothschild ( in 1991 and won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1998 as the first Indian and also the first Asian Nobel Prize winner in this field.

Mr. Sen successfully discussed that poverty is not a simple matter of productivity but related to "market failure." He was also known as an advocate of "human security."

Mr. Sen wrote in one of his papers that Japan's success is deeply rooted into its cultural background, though he does not look like having a deep insight into Japan's history and religion.

Anyway, it may be regarded as an irony that an Egyptian hero could not complete his romance with Princess Diana but an Indian scholar could complete his romance with a daughter of the House of Rothschild.

From a theological point of view, one who owes his wealth to a merchant of death cannot please God; but another who make non-nonsense academic research on poverty may please God, especially if his wife, even if she is from a super-rich clan, studies human security.
* * *

From a theological point of view, the one who gets straight to the point of real and actual states of poor people with intention to please God can please God.

But, a US Treasury Secretary may not be able to please God so long as he cannot get straight to the point of real and actual states of poor people with intention to please God.

Anyway, if Japan and the U.S., in alliance and cooperation, cannot win the War on World Poverty, who can win this war?

Should we anchor our hope on a new super couple, say, of a nephew of billionaire arms merchant and a daughter of a super-rich clan, or otherwise of a princess of a great power and a Nobel Prized economist?

(So, good girls, now you know that you can be a focus of God's love, since even a real princess or a daughter of a super-rich family is being used for Glory of God. Otherwise, please invest in, for example, the electric power sector in India or other poor country.

I may discuss later "In an Uncertain World: Tough Choices from Wall Street to Washington.")

Children or Prize Winners Before God

"Ain't That a Shame"

Children or Prize Winners Before God

In July 2001, Ms. Bettina Stiekel compiled and presented the book "KINDER FRAGEN, NOBELPREISTRAGER ANTWORTEN."

The author once joined a meeting of Nobel Prize laureates held in Germany and got cooperation from twenty or so Nobel Prize winners for collecting Q &A's between the Nobelists and children into a single volume.

One of the questions from a child is "Why is one and one is equal to two?" As mathematics is not included in academic fields covered by the Nobel Prize, a Fields prize winner answered the question.

The mathematician said, "The equation '1 + 1 = 2' means that two is the next number to one; 'From one to two' is a basic of counting."

As I once wrote, "1 + 1 = 1," "1 + 1 = 0," and "1 + 1 = Impossible" as well as "1 + 1 = 1 + 1 for ever" are all possible, if the God has not given a conception of "2" in the Concept Universe which was created before the Logic Universe that preceded the Material Universe in which mankind was born though he or she is actually a mass of atoms physically.

Mankind including Nobel prize laureates should be as humble as a child before God; before materials, concepts and logic must be created for atoms to get together and function as a human being based on "1 + 1 = 2."
* * *

US Nobel prize winner in economics in 2000 Mr. Daniel McFadden answered a question from a child as to why there are poor people and rich people in society.

In his answer, he said, "Market economy is probably the best system mankind has ever invented (no matter how many defects the system has); Japan and Germany have implemented various policies to make up for the defects of market economy, specifically preventing poor people from getting poorer."

Of course, the correct answer is that it is because the rich have not love enough to help the poor become as rich as the rich are.

You may also challenge Nobel prize laureates by buying the book at 700 yen (five dollars), though I am not sure if you can find it in a book shop in Los Angeles or New York, for example.
* * *

The Nobel Prize cannot prevent war and terror from occurring, though I respect hard work and ability of Nobel Prize winners.

Indeed, we have to prevent war and terror from occurring by putting together wisdom and power of mankind, including all the Nobel Prize winners.
* * *

By the way, please refer to a New York Times article ( which reports:
"Mr. Comey, the former No. 2 official in the Justice Department, said the crisis began when he refused to sign a presidential order reauthorizing the program, which allowed monitoring of international telephone calls and e-mail of people inside the United States who were suspected of having terrorist ties. He said he made his decision after the department’s Office of Legal Counsel, based on an extensive review, concluded that the program did not comply with the law. At the time, Mr. Comey was acting attorney general because Mr. Ashcroft had been hospitalized for emergency gall bladder surgery."

A humane US Attorney General was suffering in a hospital, his deputy was about to leave the Department, and specialists and engineers seem to have been happy being absorbed in their dream project the White House was desperately promoting.

But the real issue might be that present Nobel Prize winners seem to lack the ability to contribute to finding terrorists embedded in US society or potential terrorists growing with twisted mentality.

Can't anybody present an effective means or at least a theory based on advanced science to attain the goal of perfectly preventing terror while fully protecting civic rights of ordinary citizens?
* * *

Mr. Shimon Peres, in his Q&A of the edifying book Fr. Stiekel wrote, said that we now live in the era where the media has the strongest power and influence in society and politics (which are supported by technology, science, economics, and textual information).

Yet, it is strange that if the most gifted people will not advance their career in this most challenging field of reporting, presenting, covering, analyzing, commenting, and interviewing critical matters and persons for benefits of all the citizens.

Nobel Prized professors should logically tell their best students to harbor a desire to work in a sector that has the strongest power and influence in society, which is not the governmental intelligence sector but the free and decent media.

(There is a media company where a faction of employees and management attack their rival in the company by spreading groundless dirty rumors. You must truly improve quality of workers and executives in this sector. Otherwise, a related society as well as such a company might have to still pay dearly for such a wrong doing.

If you are not in such a company, you may be blessed.)

Super Memory or Super Oblivion

"Born in the USA," Once?

Super Memory or Super Oblivion

About 50 US government agencies share the integrated individual-information database that keeps about 560 million items related to US citizens and residents most of whom have taken a special attention of those agencies, according to a Japanese newspaper.

Tens of thousands of officials of those US governmental departments and institutions are allowed to access the database containing information FBI, CIA and other agencies have collected for prevention of terror.

I suppose this kind of intelligence strategies and operations in the War on Terror should be an issue in the Presidential Election in 2008, since such database can be a source of tragedy and unhappiness of many innocent citizens if handled in a wrong manner.
* * *

When a war continues long and very long at least psychologically, something wrong happens as history has proven.

In the end of WWII, nuclear bomb attacks were carried out onto Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the summer of 1945.

After withdrawal of US troops from Vietnam, a large-scale massacre was conducted in Cambodia in 1970's, taking lives of more than one million citizens.

After the Gulf War and during a containment operation against Iraq in 1990's, Al-Qaeda's terror attacks were launched and continued through the 9/11 terror to the present day.

Indeed, when a war continues long and very long at least psychologically, something wrong happens as history has proven.
* * *

My worry is that that something terrible might be concerned with the integrated individual-information database that keeps about 560 million items related to US citizens and residents.

Some South Asians have been reportedly assaulted and attacked in the U.S. since the 9/11 terror. But, such offence might be further carried out in social systems based on electronics, without being noticed by public.

Especially those with such information will be able to take a strong stance to others, including their rivals who may have nothing to do with terror.

Therefore, as one possibility, when the War on Terror ends, the U.S. society might be split into tow groups: one with detailed information on other citizens and another without it.

The former might form a new elite class in US society with stronger influence and control on the whole people than today's US elites have, which is not good for sound development of democratic and free society.
* * *

When a war continues long and very long at least psychologically, something wrong happens as history has proven.

My another worry is that that something terrible might be not prevented at all by the integrated individual-information database that keeps about 560 million items related to US citizens and residents.

Americans should better listen to Japanese sometimes, since Japan's security depends on the U.S. security and economic outlook. Japanese might be able to see and hear something Americans cannot; that something might be critical for the U.S. security and economic outlook.
* * *

Indeed, if America is friendly to Japan, 90% of U.S. security and economic outlook are secured (in 1990's the US Government or some of its Departments and Agencies were actually engaged in the Japan-US Money War, according to the majority of Japanese experts in this sector).

In other words, if America becomes unfriendly to Japan, we suspect Americans are getting out of order and line; in this case, Japan will have to issue a warning to the U.S. even through a blog.
* * *

Nonetheless, the God has complete database on each member of mankind.

You only have to ask God to guide you through human relations, since God has complete database on each member of mankind.

Indeed, the God should know who loves you and who needs you as well as who are safe to you.

(Storing things in your memory is an important skill. However, releasing things out of your memory is also an important skill.

What will a human being see when he or she can make, at any moment, his or her memory completely clean? Have you seen yourself if not an Angel?)

Jesus' Economics


Jesus' Economics

1) P = H/W

P: probability or degree of likelihood of your being admitted to Heaven; also peace in your mind
H: an amount of wealth you have accumulated in Heaven
W: an amount of wealth you have accumulated in this world

For example, if you have loved and helped others and these acts are evaluated as one million dollars' worth while you have one million dollars in banks, your chance of entering Heaven is 1 (= 1,000,000/1,000,000). Your chance is 1%.

However, if you have loved and helped others and these acts are evaluated as one million dollars' worth while you have one dollar in banks, your chance of entering Heaven is 1,000,000 (= 1,000,000/1). Your chance is 1,000,000%.

So, I say, "Let's be poor!"

2) W = O/H = (a kind of productivity)

W: wages for a worker
O: output of his work
H: hours in which he has worked

This is a very revolutionary concept only Jesus Christ could present. First of all, people have a right to work and get wages. An unemployed person knows that just having a job makes him so proud of himself. He will never make light of his work. And, this spirit is the most important thing to society and the nation. Money cannot buy such good-spirited citizens; you need culture, traditions, history, and faith (religions).

Moreover, as a matter of principle, it is mean and irreverent for management to show its expression of gratitude to workers by measuring worker's value in terms of a yield and working hours, which would generate more evil than good eventually.

If a prince or a princess of a royal family is working in his company, any president of the business would like to pay to the prince or the princess according to the "W = O/H."

A princess having worked for one customer in an hour (1 = 1/1) per day and a prince having worked for seven customers in seven hours (1 = 7/7) per day, both as a cab driver in Tokyo or New York, will be entitled to the same amount of "basic" wages, say, 50 dollars per day; anyway, the prince should have enjoyed more jokes his customers entertained him with.
* * *

Later, I will discuss another agenda, "B (budget) = R (tax payments by the rich) + P (tax payments by the poor)."

In this respect, you may refer to the EEE-Report a year ago or so on the miracle of feeding of thousands of people by Jesus Christ who knew they were all hiding foods in their pockets or bags while listening to Him.

(How much do you think it cost for God to create you? One million dollars? If so, how would you pay it back to God? By having workers work for long hours and produce things completely unnecessary 2000 years ago?

You had better, so good girls, take care of your mind, if you want to return it to God with less damage and contamination when your time in this world is finished, no matter how beautiful you look outwardly.

[In addition, you are lucky as EEE-Reporter is free as this may become my million dollars' worth accumulation in Heaven, though I do not mind if the Japanese Government now viewing this Report free would take this into some consideration on taxation on me.])

"Tara's Theme" Really Gives a Sense of Nostalgia

Kunio Yanagita (, a prominent literary person in Japan, reported a "folk story" like the following in his book published in 1930:

"Once upon a time there lived a good old man and his good old wife in a village. The old man lived on making wattle hats. He everyday made wattle hats and went out to a town to sell them.

One day just before the New-Year Day, the old men went to the town for selling wattle hats; but as it was the year end, nobody bought his goods.

Then he walked back home in a snowstorm. On his way back, he came by a strange plot where six stone images of Jizo, a guardian deity of children, were placed without a roof on them. Snow was falling fast and piling up thick on them.

So, he took out six wattle hats and put each one on each Jizo statute which looked like a standing but meditating monk.

Then he returned to his home and talked about the strange and poor Jizo statutes to his good old wife. And then, as the night came and they had nothing to do, they retired to rest.

But, behold, when a dawn of the New-Year Day was near, here came a line of sleds. It is the Jizo statutes that were driving the sleds with full of treasure on them.

They shouted, "Where is the good old man? Where is the good old woman?" Then, when they came to the house of the good old couple, they dumped all the treasure with a thud on snow at its door.

When the good old man and his good old wife opened the sliding door, they saw the six Jizo statutes coming back to the place where they came from."

"I Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray" (a winter platform in Tokyo)

Kunio Yanagita, a prominent literary person in Japan, reported a "folk story" like the following in his book published in 1930:

"Once upon a time Koubou-Daishi, a prominent and eminent Buddhist priest in Japan 1200 years ago, was traveling alone on foot as an itinerant priest poorly dressed, looking like a beggar.

He taught, helped, and healed many people in various villages.
(Even today, there are more than 5,000 legends on his work to help people all over Japan.)

One night, Koubou-Daishi came into a village. He stopped at a house to request accommodation for the night. But the master of the house, looking at poor clothes the stranger put on, coldly rejected the request without knowing who he was. Koubou-Daishi left the house and went on.

But soon afterward, the master of the house realized who the stranger was. He climbed a zelkova tree and shouted, 'Your Excellency Koubou-Daishi, please come back! Your Excellency Koubou-Daishi!' in vain.

Yet, he continued to shout and cry with his whole heart to become a cicada eventually.

Since then, many cicadas came to fly into the village, perching on the zelkova tree on July 23 every year.
Villagers today still say that the incident must have happened on the day, since so many cicadas perche on the very tree on the very day every year."

Koubou-Daishi is also known as Kukai (which means "Sky and Sea.")(
* * *

It is a simple truth that a man cannot become rich without making somebody poor.

If you are neither poor nor unhappy, you are making somebody poor and unhappy.

It is not what a holy man, a holy tribe, or a holy race should do.

That is why Koubou-Daishi traveled as a poor beggar.

That is why Buddha traveled as a poor beggar.

That is why Jesus Christ ordered His disciples to travel as a poor beggar.
* * *

That is why all the rich men on the earth fall into the pits of hell eventually.

But, there is a chance for you to be saved.

You had better read EEE-Report.

(When a holy man or even somebody with a temporary holy spirit comes to your home, do not treat him coldly, no matter what religion you believe in.)
