"new wine must be put into new bottles" - Approaching to Zero at a Speed

A Tokyo Downtown Street

Approaching to Zero at a Speed

Regrading N^m,
If N --> 0 is faster than m --> 0, N^m --> 0^m = 0.

Then 0^0 = 0. 

On the other hand, if N --> 0 is slower than m --> 0, 
N^m --> N^0 = 1.

Then 0^0 = 1.

As for multiplication,
N x 0 = 0, while N is any given number.

Then, N = 0/0.

Accordingly zero divided by zero is not constant, as N = 1, 2, 3, ..., N.

However, regarding m/N,

If N --> 0 is faster than m --> 0, m/N --> m/0. 

Then 0/0 = infinity. 

If N --> 0 is slower than m --> 0, m/N --> 0/N. 

Then 0/0 = 0. 

But what if both N and m approaches zero at the same speed?  Maybe N has a higher priority than m in the case of N^m, but m might  have a higher priority than N in the case of m/N.

"his name was called JESUS" - Anger of God

Old Downtown on Tokyo Bay

Anger of God

If God designed this universe, what was His purpose?

This material universe is designed so well.  There are a million of chances that this material universe could not be established if God's design had any mistakes.  And there are one billion chances that the human species could not emerge from the natural environment of the earth if God's design had any flaws..

No scientists, who are of course human beings, cannot achieve the same thing, allowing for the Big Bang of the universe and enabling formation of living things in a planet like the earth, if they could further develop their science.  But God made it as we see it today.  It is a super-great act to crate this material universe and realize evolution of living things to the level of humans.  So, it must have a concrete aim.  What is the intention of God to create this university now expanding over scores of billion light years and enable evolution of organisms to humankind?

Regardless of His intention, the world we see on the earth today is the fruit of the attempt of God.  This human world today is on the summit of proceedings of this enterprise of God.  But this world or humankind has been so much contaminated by vice and evil especially in these 2000 years.  And it is apparent that this state under the rule of evilness is against expectation of God.

As human beings fall short of expectation of God, God must be angry.  Teaching of God is not so much respected in the human world while God is the Creator of this universe.  Will God admit that His trial is failure?  Or will God directly take a decisive action against human beings to terminate their existence?

In theory, it is very likely that from the beginning there is a special mechanism embedded in this universe, the nature, or the human body or the mind and heart that would automatically start to work and destroy existence of human beings if they should fail God.

So, I am afraid that we, human species, are approaching the critical stage where such a fatal mechanism will start to work.  Indeed, it must be enough even for God to wait for 2000 years since He first appeared to human beings in Palestine when the Roman Empire occupied the region  to rule Israelis.

Put simply, this civilization of ours with ever growing power of science and technology can collapse due to wrong application of science and technology or wrong direction they are progressing.

The human species being evil should be destroyed or eradicated by God or through some secret mechanism God prepared from the beginning for this purpose.

But more significant is that people do not think this way at all.  They do not think that they are disliked by God.  They do not think that they can be crushed and purged like God would do to servants of Satan and Satan himself.  It is truly grave that people think that God will never destroy them if they act like henchmen of the Devil.    

Nonetheless God is omnipotent.  He will never fail.

"as long as they have the bridegroom" - Zero, Constant or Variable

Ueno Station, Tokyo

Zero, Constant or Variable

The number is a key to understanding how this universe was designed by God.
What is 0 to the power 0? 
The problem is similar to that with division by zero. No value can be assigned to 0 to the power 0 without running into contradictions. Thus 0 to the power 0 is undefined 
How could we define it? 0 to any positive power is 0, so 0 to the power 0 should be 0. But any positive number to the power 0 is 1, so 0 to the power 0 should be 1. We can't have it both ways. 
Underlying this argument is the same idea as was used in the attempt to define 0 divided by 0. Consider a to the power b and ask what happens as a and b both approach 0. Depending on the precise way this happens the power may assume any value in the limit.
They explain how any positive number to the power 0 gets 1 in the following way.

N^0 = N^(m-m) = N^m/N^m = 1

Specifically, if N = 2 and m = 3,
2^0 = 2^(3-3) = 2^3/2^3 = 8/8 = 1

So, it can be claimed that 0^0 = 0^(0-0) = 0^0/0^0 =1, no matter what value 0^0 has, since both the denominator and the numerator must have the same value 0^0, namely 0 to power 0.

But if 0 to power 0 is considered indefiniteness, 0^0 and 0^0 can have different values.  The above tautology can be effective only if the value of 0^0 is constant.

In other approach, for example, 8 = 2+2+2+2 = 2^3, but 0 = 0, 0+0, 0+0+0, 0+0+0+0, etc.  Therefore 0 = 0^1, 0^2, 0^3, 0^4, etc.  Since 0 is indefiniteness, 0^0 must be also indefiniteness.

But we may think that 2^m means 1x2x2x2...x2.

If so, when m=3, 2^3 = 1x2x2x2 = 8.  In this scheme, 2^0 = 1; 3^0 = 1; and N^0 = 1.

Even, 0^3 = 1x0x0x0 = 0.  Then, 0^0 = 1.  

Anyway, the number zero is essentially indefinite, since 0 = 0-0, 0-0-0, etc.

In contrast, 8/2 = 4, since 8-2-2-2-2 = 0 definitely.

But 0/0 = indefinite; if 0-0 =0, then 0/0 = 1; if 0-0-0 = 0, then 0/0 = 2, and so on.

You can subtract 0 from 0 any times.

So, we may well think that it is one that is the basis of the number system.  With one, only zero has meaning arithmetically. Then we might have to think as follows:
0^3 = 1x0x0x0 = 0.  Then, 0^0 = 1.

Even 0/0 = 1x0/1x0 = 1/1 = 1.

Today's arithmetic system seems to have two different systems in it: one to regard 0 simply as indefiniteness and another to regard 0 as 1x0 since 1 is the basis.


So, zero seems to be closer to God than one.

Zero as a state of naught is different from zero as a number for arithmetic operation.

What we can understand easily is the zero as a number for arithmetic operation supported by one, the basis.

"and they shall prophesy" - Expected Disasters on Tokyo

Ginza Shopping Street, Tokyo

Expected Disasters on Tokyo

For 2020 the Tokyo Olympics is slated.

But there are some serious concerns about its safety.  Tokyo can suffer a local earthquake, probably of an M8 class, which might take on more than 20,000 lives and can be covered by inches of volcanic ashes if Mt. Fuji, 100 km west of Tokyo, should erupt.  Further Nankai Trough in the Pacific Ocean can cause a huge tsunami to Pacific coast lines where Tokyo is located.  This tsunami is estimated to take on more than 200,000 lives.

In addition, two nuclear power plants, now halted after the Fukushima Daiichi accident, are expected to restart their operation in a few years.  One, the Hamaoka Plant, is 200 km southwest of Tokyo and another, the Kashiwazaki-Kariya Plant, is 200 km north of Tokyo.  As the Fukushima Daiichi Plant is situated 200 km northeast of Tokyo, any accident in those two nuclear power plants can pose a threat as dangerous as one posed by Fukushima Daiichi.

So, Tokyo should give up the Olympics so that it can concentrate on making itself more resistant to any natural or man-made disasters.

Then, Turkey might host the 2020 Olympics as the first among Islamic nations.  Even Syrian Muslims in refugee camps would be glad.

"the tree of the knowledge of good and evil" - After a Snowing Day

Around Tokyo Bay after Snow Falling

After a Snowing Day

Two consecutive weekends in Japan experienced heavy snowing.

Even the water flowing in a big river toward Tokyo Bay showed a different surface feeling.

A Haiku Poem:

After a snowing day,
None feels a turn to spring,
But a silky river is flowing to the bay.

"with the sword of my mouth" - Japanese and Koreans in Real History

Shinkansen Trains around Tokyo

Japanese and Koreans in Real History

Most of Japanese are angry with the South Korean Government as it has virtually launched a diplomatic war against Japan.

South Koreans think their status in the US will be promoted higher as they are blaming Japan for matters in and before WWII.

Put simply Koreans could not modernize and Westernize their society between the late 19th century and the early 20th century, while Russians were trying to invade and occupy any part of the Far East.  Even China, or  Qing Dynasty, which was a suzerain state for the then Korean Kingdom, was powerless before modernized Russian troops.

Without military strength of the Empire of Japan in the Far East at the time, Russians could have colonized Manchuria, North China, and the Korean Peninsula.

So, to build a defense line against Russians, the Empire of Japan helped Koreans get independent from the Chinese rule and modernize its society.  But to the eyes of some Imperial politicians of Japan, Koreans were not effective or wise in this effort.  Though there were some strong objections inside the political community of the Empire, Tokyo decided to integrate Korea as part of the Japanese Empire which had already put Taiwan and some Pacific islands under its rule.

This annexation of Korea in 1910 was achieved through official diplomatic procedures between Tokyo and the Korean Government.  It was based on a treaty endorsed by politicians of both the countries.  And, no large-scale armed resistance occurred in Korea on this annexation.

Nonetheless, it is a big shame for Koreans.  They had once enjoyed rich culture, especially, in terms of Buddhism and Confucianism.  More than 1000 years ago, Japan welcomed Korean immigrants with some cultural skills.  They fled the war-torn Peninsula to the Japanese Archipelago to survive.  Japanese welcomed them and lived peacefully with immigrant Koreans.  Even today there are local places whose names are Korean origin since Korean immigrants settled various parts of Japan (especially a region west of Tokyo is notable in this context).
But as time went by, the Korean society came to become rigid society due to extreme influence of Confucianism.  As China was the homeland of Confucianism, Korea got subject to China religiously, culturally, and politically.  It was a situation not found in Japan.  Japan cut an official diplomatic tie with China in the 9th century, though cultural and commercial ties were maintained.  But Korea actually became a tributary of China.

So, when Western Powers, such as the UK, France, the US, and Russia, expanded their overseas activities to build more colonies in Asia in the late 19th century, three major countries in the Far East, namely Japan, China and Korea, were put in trial.  China was partly colonized.  Korea had no strength and means to prevent Western invasion, being destined to be colonized soon.  But Japanese carried out reformation of the state and society (called the Meiji Restoration), advancing to modernization and Westernization.  And Japanese could finally achieved their own version of the Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century.  The gap of national power between Japan and Korea was ever increasing since then.  And finally, Japanese politicians decided to annex Korea to the Empire for efficient modernization of the Korean society.

(And the Empire of Japan invested more into Korea before WWII than it exploited Korea so as to make Korea a strong part of the Empire and also a reasonable market for Japanese industry.)

This is another face of the so called colonization of Korea by the Empire of Japan.  And it is very unfair for the US to neglect it when it shows any compassion to Korean people.

In fact, many old South Koreans who lived the era before WWII and after WWII admitted that the Japanese rule had some reasonable bases.  Without the Empire of Japan, South Korea today must be part of North Korea at best.        

So, South Koreans living in the US must not try to harm friendly relationship between Japan and the US by telling Americans a lie about special types of Korean women who served Imperial troops of Japan while Korean men opted to get money in exchange rather than to keep their women.
In May 1910, the Minister of War of Japan, Terauchi Masatake, was given a mission to finalize Japanese control over Korea after the previous treaties (the Japan–Korea Treaty of 1904 and theJapan–Korea Treaty of 1907) had made Korea a protectorate of Japan and had established Japanese hegemony over Korean domestic politics. On 22 August 1910, Japan effectivelyannexed Korea with the Japan–Korea Treaty of 1910 signed by Lee Wan-yong, Prime Minister of Korea, and Terauchi Masatake, who became the first Japanese Governor-General of Korea. 
The treaty became effective the same day and was published one week later. The treaty stipulated:

Article 1: His Majesty the Emperor of Korea concedes completely and definitely his entire sovereignty over the whole Korean territory to His Majesty the Emperor of Japan.

Article 2: His Majesty the Emperor of Japan accepts the concession stated in the previous article and consents to the annexation of Korea to the Empire of Japan.
Anyway, it was an era when the US colonized the Philippines, the UK colonized Part of China, Malaysia, Burma, and India; France colonized Vietnam; and the Netherlands colonized Indonesia without expecting that.their rule in Asia would someday end, though it was ended with the Pearl Harbor Attack so successfully and bravely carried out by the Imperial Navy of Japan in 1941.
