All Time Heroes and Heroines

Humans 1 ("I'm gonna be warm this winter")

Humans 2 ("Who's sorry now")

Humans 3 ("La plus belle pour aller danser" [the most beautiful dancing queen])

Humans 3.5 ("Unchain my heart")

All Time Heroes and Heroines
(- 2007 summer service edition limited -)

1. Jesus Christ as Man
(Nothing to say about his influence in these 2000 years. Even the superpower of today the U.S. owes almost everything decent to Jesus Christ.)

2. Abraham
(Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, each as a religion, are just a secondary matter compared with the relationship between God and Abraham.)

3. Buddha
(His teaching once overwhelmingly covered India, China, and Japan. Today, you cannot expect any influence that can overwhelmingly cover India, China, and Japan.)

4. Marco Polo
(Columbus is in a sense just an urchin reading Marco's report and dreaming of the country of gold Japan or the future glory of America.)

5. Napoleon
(Anyway you have to choose somebody as the fifth. Taking into consideration the French Revolution, allowing for the U.S. independence ideology, and successive dominant European Civilization, good or bad, it is an easy name to take.)

1. Joan of Arc, or Jeanne d'Arc

2. Cleopatra

3. Himiko
(Ancient Japan's mysterious queen allowing for Japan's history recorded authentically as Japan is the all time greatest nation-sate of a race.)

4. Wu Zetian
(The only madam Emperor of China who was so nice to Japan)

5. Queen Elizabeth I
(Anyway you have to choose somebody as the fifth from the Anglo-Saxons)

Great Minds:
1. St. Paul or Paulos

2. Murasaki Shikibu
(A Japanese female writer of one of the earliest and most famous novels in human history, proving a cultural level of the Japanese race 1000 years ago)

3. The Unknowns
(Too many poor but peaceful people here and there in history of mankind)

Central Players:
1. Angels

2. Servants of the Lord God

Creators fully respectfully:
God or Allah

"Hold me like you never"

"Let me go..."


"But I don't know..." (Mais je ne sais pas.)

(or "Veni vidi vici" as Caesar so shouted)

The most valuable description of the Bible (here the King James Version), as a historical evidence to understand what happened 2000 years ago, is of the scene when followers of Jesus Christ went to the tomb where His dead body had been laid down:

Joh 20:01 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Joh 20:02 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

Joh 20:03 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.

Joh 20:04 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

Joh 20:05 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Joh 20:06 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

Joh 20:07 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

Joh 20:08 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

Now, here, what and why did the disciple believe by seeing something in the tomb?

This is one of grounds for admitting a theory that a body shape of Jesus Christ was imprinted on "the linen clothes."

However, it does not lead to taking the shroud in Turin as an authentic one. It might be the second copy or something like that.

If we accept this theory, the answers to the mystery arising from the last sentence, Joh 20:08, are clear.

Even if, say, Tom Sawyer left his body image in a coffin and disappeared before his burial, people would believe that Tom resurrected and he was actually a holy messenger, departing for a new mission from his territory along the Mississippi.

Indeed, those who believe without seeing are more blessed, though it is often said that seeing is believing.

(A Japanese newscaster reported that a US cable TV was reporting all day long on the Minnesota bridge accident without interruption.

The foreign-looking newscaster herself went out to an expressway outside Tokyo and gave a warning about the global warming.

Indeed, nowadays everything complicated, including extinction of a species in a cyberspace, seems to be ascribed to the CO2 emission of cars.

However, in Japan, you can still enjoy skiing and, say, Christmas!!.....
Uh!.....Have a summer vacation, too.; You, too, good girls!

I'm a busy man until midnight as is usual since 1997 when...)

Check Bridges and Design Charts!!

"Give me Jesus"

"Give me Jesus"

I'm checking (Je vérifie)

Check Bridges and Design Charts!!

A school bus carrying 60 Minnesota children stopped unbelievably luckily along a side wall of a suddenly collapsed large bridge over the Mississippi in front of a semi-track which was violently stopped by a heaved and detached surface section of the bridge and started to flame up.
* * *

Several years ago, a large bridge collapsed in South Korea. An old Korean said that recent construction looked well outwardly but lacked true workmanship which had been always assured during the Era of Occupation by the Empire of Japan, though everybody spoke ill of the Empire of Japan in these days.

However, what the US bridge collapse accident reminded me of is of course the huge collapse of the World Trade Center buildings on September 11, 2001.
* * *

There seem to be still many arguments why the WTC towers, designed by a Japanese American, collapsed so drastically almost an hour after the crash by hijacked jet planes.

There is a possible or hypothetic scenario about the proceeding of the collapse I have figured:
1. The structure of WTC looks too simple, when observing it in a wider view, without complex protective and reinforcement method applied.

2. There is a large vertical elevator space in the central area of each floor from the top to the bottom of the WTC tower.

3. When the tower initially started to collapse (probably due to melting joint metal on a crashed floor), the initially falling floors from the top as a single mass hit a certain and decisive floor and its structure, which had most critically supported all the upper structure, the crash of the mass on the very floor should generate a kind of a longitudinal wave with a specific frequency probably close to a characteristic vibration frequency of the whole building.

4. Consequently, a kind of resonance to the vertical direction might happen with destructive energy converged to each joint part of the structure connecting each floor vertically.

5. Therefore, the fate of the WTC towers was decided the moment the first falling mass from the roof hit a certain decisive floor, generating a specific frequency longitudinal wave the power of which multiplied by the resonance effect.

If the impulse frequency had not fit the simple-structure-properties of the tower and had not been multiplied further by the vertical-tube-type structure of the tower, the two WTC towers should have stood even to this day.
* * *

It was once said in Japan that infrastructures in the U.S. had been poorly maintained due to the federal and state government budget constraints as adverse effect of the Vietnam War.

(Another example is the recent hot-water pipe line explosion in New York.)

But, an old Korean, who probably held some grudge against Japan but remembered the era when the Empire of Japan had occupied and controlled the Korean Peninsula before WWII, praised the conscientious workmanship of Japanese companies and administration in building infrastructures in Korea.

(The occupation by the Empire of Japan was not a Western style of colonization. Today's historians and politicians in the world, including the U.S., should check and study it.)
* * *

US TV reporters and casters much worried about safety of passengers, rescue workers, and relatives in their live coverage.

I am now a little worrying about the durability of the Tokyo Tower, the Eiffel Tower, and the Empire State Building.

And that is why I openly state my faith in Jesus Christ and the Lord God Almighty, while no one is found at this level of horizons.

You had better check a bridge and a chart your soul needs to live and die.

Finally, no more tragedies in this summer are my sincere wish.

(We often hear that people running from terrorists were killed in a church where they were hiding, or a church was completely destroyed by a hurricane or a tornado.

Indeed, a religion is not a matter. A church is one type of buildings. It is faith that cannot be killed and destroyed. It is faith where you can hide completely safely.

A religion is directly connected to business and money. But, faith does not fit to business and money.

Construct a bridge, a tower, and a building based on faith but not a religion.

I really like to meet people of faith but not of a religion, say, on any jetty, tower, Shinkansen terminal, river bank, or station, since I feel like a kind of hiding in a lonely post along a great river which may really overflow next time.)

Hatshepsut, Cleopatra, Princess Diana, and Who?

...nice but...(... gentil mais...?)

Hatshepsut, Cleopatra, Princess Diana, and Who?

Could it be a revelation or an event of good omen?
" June 27, 2007—This mummy is the body of gender-bending female pharaoh Hatshepsut, who ruled ancient Egypt as both queen and king nearly 3,500 years ago, archaeologists announced today.
The scientists are also conducting DNA tests, and preliminary results suggest a close familial relationship between the mummy and that of Hatshepsut's grandmother, Amos Nefreteri."


There are some arguments about Hatshepsut's relationship with Moses:
"Hatshepsut was the daughter of Pharaoh Thutmose I (a.k.a. Thutmosis) of XVIII the Dynasty during the New Kingdom, Egypt's Golden Age. Her reign was in ca. 1490 - 1468 B.C. Some historians believe that she was the Pharoah's daughter that drew Moses out of the Nile."
* * *

Egypt could not be a hero in the human history. It is Israelites, Greeks, Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire, Christianity, and Islam. Its great pyramids could not become a symbol of their glory and hegemony over the Middle East and around the Mediterranean which had been highly expected but could not come true in these 5000 years.

Even Jesus Christ reportedly mentioned almost nothing about Egypt.
* * *

Even though Moses looks like a half Egyptian helped by female pharaoh Hatshepsut, Egypt had not share the glory of Israelites and Jesus Christ.

But why?

Egypt could have been a literally world empire with hegemony over three continents: Africa, Europe, and Asia. But, since the era of Alexander the Great, no heroes and heroines emerged from original Egyptians, while providing a great stage for the foreign heroine Cleopatra.

But why?
* * *

It is their faith and religion.

The God or Allah was not pleased with religions and faith of ancient Egyptians, in my view.

For example, the God did not punish Greeks and Romans for their religions and faith; but He instead showed extreme preference to the religion and faith of Israelites.

When Greek-origin Cleopatra died in a war against the Roman Empire, the God seems to have decided to send His Son among Israelites but not in Egypt.

And, 600 years later, the God seems to have decided to provide Islam with people in the Arabian Peninsula but not in Egypt.

But, again, what was wrong in their faith and religion?
* * *

Egypt, from the ancient days of Hatshepsut with Moses involved through the era of Cleopatra with Herod and his clan involved to these days with Princess Diana involved, seems to have been given a special role by the God or Allah.

And, I think the reason consists in their faith and religion of the era symbolized by pyramids, which makes the pyramids all the more mysterious.
* * *

The true rival of Israelites for wining God's favor must have been ancient Egyptians but not ancient Greeks.

Ancient Egyptians built that great tangible monument called pyramids; but ancient Israelites built great intangible code of conducts and ethics before their God which are symbolized by Abraham and his clans.

The God loved a mind set and behaviors of Abraham.

(Most importantly, Abraham's mind set and behaviors are not inherently Arab but Sumerian.)
* * *

It is a big omen that Hatshepsut's body is identified in 2007.

We may see another divine queen as well as another Moses in these days, though not necessarily in Egypt.

They may emerge, say, from the poorest community in America, since they can be another Hatshepsut and another Moses beyond worldly fates.

Or, possibly, they have been already in your sight in whatever style.

(You may wonder what merit lies in the issue of such queens and princesses.

Indeed, we still need Mother Mary to educate various types of bad men, women, and couples.

Truly, it has passed decades since the death of Marilyn Monroe.

So, I will ask any man what his wife's ranking is toward either Mother Mary or Marilyn Monroe, so that he would probably find how blessed or coursed he is, if I may so imply.

Anyway, the Hatshepsut class can be rather easy for a man proving himself to the Lord God, even in my context.)

Release Koreans in the Name of Allah!!

"Take the last train to... "

"I will meet you at the station..."
(Je vous rencontrerai à la station....?)

Release Koreans in the Name of Allah!!

A Christian missionary group consisting of twenty-three Koreans was kidnapped and two of them, a priest and a former IT worker, were killed by the Taliban, while other 21 were still at a risk of execution.

If the Taliban killed 23 Korean Christians, it would be extremely alarming to the world, since "Pakistan has seen a massive increase in violence ever since Pakistani troops stormed the Red Mosque in early July," according to BBC (

All the Muslims in the world should tell the Taliban to release Koreans in the name of Allah, since the Taliban and AlQaeda are reportedly fighting in the name of Allah.

Besides, the worse your enemies are in tactics, the better you have to be in strategy; if they kill one man, you have to save one life to win the favor of Allah.
* * *

And thus, I still recall part of the novel "Moby Dick":
"And, doubtless, my going on this whaling voyage, formed part of the grand programme of Providence that was drawn up a long time ago...:

"Grand Contested Election for the Presidency of the United States"

Saudi Arabian Mr. Osama bin Laden and Egyptian Mr. Ayman al-Zawahiri were Muslims; and it is said that Muslims consider Arabs to be descendants of Ishmael.

If "Moby Dick" is a prophecy, it clearly states that when a grand contested election campaign for the Presidency of the United States is heated on and bloody battles are going on in Afghanistan, Muslims like a crew under Captain Ahab are going out for attacking a gigantic-white-whale-like nation which might be the U.S., the U.K., or EU.
* * *

If something too extreme and bizarre has happened, we have to take heed of its significance and analyze its potential.

It was precisely when I heard a news report on AlQaeda's bombing of US embassies in East Africa in 1998 (after the death of Princess Diana in association with an Egyptian in 1997).

If you are an American citizen who has never realized or felt the huge influential power of the U.S. on other countries, you might not have been so alerted. But, with such a notion, it was truly an act of madness, since the bombing in 1998 was tantamount to declaring war on the U.S. which is essentially too large, strong, and influential to, as a hypothesis, attack by force for any cause not related to justice of all the mankind in the whole human history.

But, more alarming was that the Clinton Administration did not appropriately address it. Scores of missiles launched to AlQaeda camps in Afghanistan could not be effective unless US troops had been sent to deep in Afghanistan to arrest leaders of AlQaeda.

And, the Clinton Administration and the successive George W. Bush Administration did not send their troops to Afghanistan (except in the wake of the 9/11 terror in 2001) to arrest leaders of AlQaeda for their having bombed the two US embassies in East Africa, an act of overstepping a conventional paradigm of anti-US guerrilla activities.

In those days, I felt really uncomfortable in the course of events in Afghanistan; and eventually the answer came out with the 9/11 Terror (which must have been probably fatal to you for probably terribly unknown reasons, if any).

The same uncomfortable feeling has stemmed from the recent bloody incidents in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
* * *

I hope that the Taliban would release all the captive Koreans, mostly young Christian ladies engaged in a bona fide mission.

Though it is said that such a large-number-hostage-taking operation cannot be carried out by local Taliban followers but those under a chain of command from some Taliban's headquarters in Pakistan, they should release all the captive Koreans.

I do not believe Allah is glad to see his believers going to kill total 23 Korean civilians in Afghanistan, since it would be too extreme and bizarre.

I hope that a miracle will happen upon them all concerned, since this summer should not be another summer of 2001.

(Interestingly, US Vice President Mr. Dick Cheney is going to make a TV appearance on "Larry King Live" of CNN this week. What Mr. Cheney represents may be truly a "Moby Dick."

Indeed, when I was a schoolboy, I liked "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," in Japanese, since Tom returned alive just at his own funeral with his girl friend or Huckleberry Finn.

Have you read any? Or the "stories of the Thousand and One Nights" for your future survival?)

Everybody Is Talking About...

(Station de Tokyo: Un véritable symbole national...)

Everybody Is Talking About...

Early this morning, Mr. Makoto Oda, an anti-Vietnam-War movement hero in Japan, died.

It was symbolic as both the socialist party and the communist party of Japan decreased the number of their Upper House members in the yesterday's election in Japan.

In Japan, traditionally, being liberal has meant to be looking on North Korea and China or the Soviet Union, all autocratic states leveraging Marxism, with favor.

However, an ex-TV female caster with official endorsement of the ruling party LDP got into the Diet, though she had been severely under fire for her past attitude to voting in elections, namely too much abstention.

The Liberal Democratic Party for the first time lost its leading party position in the Upper House, though Prime Minister Mr. Shinzo Abe is reportedly determined to keep his position.
* * *

Everybody associated with rich Israelite Americans in New York seems to be talking about China and India, as if the two countries were born friends of liberty and democracy in addition to market economy.

There is no freedom of press, expression, and ideology in China. You cannot criticize Chinese communist leaders on any street in China if you do not want to be brought to a court which often delivers a death sentence to an enemy of the Communist Party, since it is not a democracy.

There is not much meaning in freedom of press, expression, and ideology in India. You are yet to see an Abraham Lincoln in India, since its society, except large cities and modern industries, is based on strict class structure called caste, which makes its democracy almost meaningless (

On the other hand, since the end of the Tokugawa samurai regime in 1868, Japan has been struggling in order to introduce and establish true democracy. Even in the Imperial regimes before WWII, Japan was advancing to equal and democratic society, though the progress was severely damaged in the deterioration of the world economy after the Great Depression which started in the U.S. in 1929 leading to the Japan-US War.

Before WWII, specifically, in 1925, the Empire of Japan introduced universal suffrage by adult males for its Lower House Election.

It was when China was in the massive civil war ( and India was a desperate colony of the U.K.

Japan has been a more organized country than the U.S., the U.K., and, for example, France as well as China and India in these 2000 years.

Everybody should talk about it.

(That is why it is no wonder that you encounter any non-nonsense Japanese in any field fatefully, which should be correctly grasped beyond a biased influence mostly generated in New York.)
