"we are members of his body" - Quantum Entanglement and Another Dimension




Tokyo


Quantum Entanglement and Another Dimension

What is seen is a result of what cannot be seen.

There is a phenomenon called entanglement.
 For example, if a pair of particles is generated in such a way that their total spin is known to be zero, and one particle is found to have clockwise spin on a certain axis, then the spin of the other particle, measured on the same axis, will be found to be counterclockwise. Because of the nature of quantum measurement, however, this behavior gives rise to effects that can appear paradoxical: any measurement of a property of a particle can be seen as acting on that particle (e.g. by collapsing a number of superimposed states); and in the case of entangled particles, such action must be on the entangled system as a whole. It thus appears that one particle of an entangled pair "knows" what measurement has been performed on the other, and with what outcome, even though there is no known means for such information to be communicated between the particles, which at the time of measurement may be separated by arbitrarily large distances.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_entanglement
Such a phenomenon can be explained by assuming a new axis in coordinates of an elemental particle.

 No matter how long the distance between a and b is, if the two particles P1 and P2 are entangled, they share the same value "c" indicating a quantum state.

If P1 is on the earth and P2 is on the moon, they are still entangled through the quantum-coordinate "c."

If "c" means a state of the spin, P1's having an upward spin means P2's having a downward spin.

But when the particle P2 receives observation using specific energy, its quantum state changes from "c" to "e," thus breaking an entanglement relationship.  At the same time, the particle P1 changes its quantum state from "c" to "d."  


So, no signal is sent from P2 to P1 at the speed higher than the light speed.  But, the effect on the quantum coordinate works both on P1 and P2 at the same time despite a distance between them.

Therefore, when observation leads to a finding of a downward spin in P2, the spin of P1 becomes an upward at the moment of the observation.

You may regard "e" as a downward spin and "d" as an upward spin.  Hence, you would regard the quantum state "c" as a mixed state of downward and upward.

Before observation,
P1 (a, d + e)
P2 (b, d + e)

After observation,
P1 (a, d)
P2 (b, e)

Note that the quantum coordinates d, e, and d + e must represent not only states but also force.  The state "d" means force to realize an upward spin and  "e" means force to realize a downward spin.  The sate "d + e" means force to realize "d" or "e" at any moment according to probability.


In the case of the double slit experiment, the following coordinates can be used with the position coordinate and the waveform state coordinate.

When using Slit 1 only and thus P only passes Slit 1,
P (x, p1)

When using Slit 2 only and thus P only passes Slit 2,
P (x, p2)

When using Slits 1 and 2 and thus P passes either Slit 1 or Slit 2,
P (x, p1 + p2)

As this waveform state means how force from the space works on movement of the particle, P (x, p1 + p2) means the position x of the particle P is influenced by interference force caused by  p1 and p2.  It shows the interference pattern.  And specific values of x are taken according to probability associated with wave-formed p1, p2, or p1 + p2.

But if the particle P is observed using some energy at Slit 1 or 2, its quantum state changes to P (x, p1) or P (x, p2).  In this case no interference pattern appears on the screen ahead the Slits.

The point at issue is that we have to introduce additional coordinates in handling elemental particles in addition to the position coordinates.

And this quantum coordinate or axis suggests there is another dimension in space or another layer in space of this universe where entangled elemental particles are linked no matter how long they are separated in position coordinates.

We have to admit such a dimension that cannot be seen, but rather, its existence is proved and revealed by the quantum entanglement.

"the resurrection of life" - 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 Years



Tokyo


500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 Years

In AD 1, nothing happened, since Christ Jesus was born several years before it, most probably.

But, AD 500, the turmoil of Europe after the fall of the Western Roman Empire came to be settled as Frankish Kingdom was consolidated or survived toward further expansion while its king officially adopted Christianity.  The era of the Roman Empire ended in Western Europe.
Childeric is chiefly important to history for bequeathing the Franks to his son Clovis, who began an effort to extend his authority over the other Frankish tribes and to expand their territorium south and west into Gaul. Clovis converted to Christianity and put himself on good terms with the powerful Church and with his Gallo-Roman subjects.

In a thirty-year reign (481–511) Clovis defeated the Roman general Syagrius and conquered the Roman exclave of Soissons, defeated the Alemanni (Tolbiac, 504) and established Frankish hegemony over them. Clovis defeated the Visigoths (Vouillé, 507) and conquered their entire kingdom (save Septimania) with its capital at Toulouse, and conquered the Bretons (according to Gregory of Tours) and made them vassals of Francia. He conquered most or all of the neighbouring Frankish tribes along the Rhine and incorporated them into his kingdom.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francia
Then around 1000, crusaders emerged from Western Europe under leadership of the Vatican.  Crusades did not change political and religious climates in Europe, but it gave a great impact on Muslims, making them carry an almost eternal grudge against European Christians.  Till then a level of civilization had been higher in the Islamic world, but consequently due to the Commerce of the Levant and access to various cultural heritage from ancient civilizations around the Mediterranean, including Greek Civilization, having been preserved among Muslims, Western Europeans acquired precious cultural products of the past.  It led to the advent of the Renaissance.
The Crusades were military campaigns sanctioned by the Latin Roman Catholic Church during the High Middle Ages and Late Middle Ages. In 1095 Pope Urban II proclaimed the First Crusade with the stated goal of restoring Christian access to holy places in and near Jerusalem. Many historians and some of those involved at the time, like Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, give equal precedence to other papal-sanctioned military campaigns undertaken for a variety of religious, economic, and political reasons, such as the Albigensian Crusade, the Aragonese Crusade, the Reconquista, and the Northern Crusades.[1] Following the first crusade there was an intermittent 200-year struggle for control of the Holy Land, with six more major crusades and numerous minor ones. In 1291, the conflict ended in failure with the fall of the last Christian stronghold in the Holy Land at Acre, after which Roman Catholic Europe mounted no further coherent response in the east.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusaders
Then in 1500, a new era started in the Christian world with Columbus who reached part of Americas.
1492: Jews expelled from Spain.
1492: Christopher Columbus landed in the Americas from Spain.
1503: Leonardo da Vinci begins painting the Mona Lisa and completes it three or four years later.
1512: Copernicus writes Commentariolus, and moves the sun to the center of the solar system.
1517: The Protestant Reformation begins when Martin Luther posts his 95 Theses in Saxony.
1521: November, Ferdinand Magellan's expedition reaches Maluku and after trade with Ternate returns to Europe with a load of cloves.
1531–32: The Church of England breaks away from the Roman Catholic Church and recognizes King Henry VIII as the head of the Church.
Finally, we reached the year 2000.
The Gulf War – Iraq was left in severe debt after the 1980s war with Iran. President Saddam Hussein accused Kuwait of flooding the market with oil and driving down prices. As a result, on 2 August 1990, Iraqi forces invaded and conquered Kuwait. The UN immediately condemned the action, and a coalition force led by the United States was sent to the Persian Gulf. Aerial bombing of Iraq began in January 1991 (see also Gulf War), and a month later, the UN forces drove the Iraqi army from Kuwait in just four days. In the aftermath of the war, the Kurds in the north of Iraq and the Shiites in the south rose up in revolt, and Saddam Hussein barely managed to hold onto power. Until the US invasion in 2003, Iraq was cut off from much of the world. 
By 1990, Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms were causing major inflation and economic chaos. A coup attempt by hard-liners in August 1991 failed, marking the effective end of the Soviet Union. All its constituent republics declared their independence in 1991, and on Christmas, Gorbachev resigned from office. After 73 years, the Soviet Union had ceased to exist.  
2001, September 11 attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania (2,996 killed) 
As the Federal Reserve maintained low interest rates to favor economic growth, a housing bubble began to appear in the United States. In 2007, the rise in interest rates and the collapse of the housing market caused a wave of loan payment failures in the U.S. The subsequent mortgage crisis caused a global financial crisis, because the subprime mortgages had been securitized and sold to international banks and investment funds. Despite the extensive intervention of central banks, including partial and total nationalization of major European banks,[127][128] the crisis of sovereign debt became particularly acute, first in Iceland, though as events of the early 2010s would show, it was not an isolated European example. Economic activity was severely affected around the world in 2008 and 2009,[129] with disastrous consequences for carmakers.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000s_(decade)
So, 2000 years must look like only four days for God.

You may summarize the human history of these 2000 years in various ways, but it looks like a mistake of Christians.

By leveraging power of Christianity, Western Europe and North America have come to lead the world while acquiring strong and effective means, namely modern science and technology, to produce advanced and unlimited wealth.  But as a consequence Mammon or money has come to reign the world.  So, inevitably God must be angry.  

We are responsible, since we can clearly see this history of 2000 years.  The Second Coming of Christ must be a terrible incident for human beings, while we observed many tragedies in this era, such as the Great Indian Tsunami that occurred before the death of John Paul II of 2005 and the Great Northeast Japan Tsunami that triggered the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident in 2011 when non-democratic China became the second largest economy in the world catching up with Japan.  

We live in the last phase of the history in a sense.

"and touched his garment" - Japan and Spain in 1611



Tokyo


Japan and Spain in 1611


In 1609, a Spanish ship was wrecked in the Pacific Ocean near Tokyo, then called Edo, while it was sailing from the Philippines to Mexico.

However,  Deputy Governor of the Philippines Rodrigo de Vivero y Velasco (1564 - 1636) and 360 sailors could reach the land on Japan, specifically a village in the Boso Peninsula.  Then they received very humane hospitality from Japanese farmers and samurais in the region.

This report reached Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543 - 1616), the head of the Tokugawa clan that governed Japan at the time.  So, Ieyasu invited Rodrigo de Vivero to his castle in Shizuoka, 200  km west of Edo.  In his way to Shizuoka, Rodrigo de Vivero paid a courtesy call to shogun Hidetada, a son of Ieyasu, who acted as samurai king of Japan.

At the time, Ieysau was not strongly against Christianity.  He rather wanted to promote trade with Spain, though trade with the Netherlands was already underway.  So, their meeting was successful.  Ieyasu gave a ship to Rodrigo de Vivero.  It was William Adams (1564-1620) that built this ship.  Adams was the first Englishman who came and stayed in Japan till his death.

Then in 1611, King Philip III of Spain (1578-1621) decided to send Sebastián Vizcaíno (1548-1615) to Japan as his official diplomat to consolidate the relationship between Japan and Spain.  Vizcaíno visited Shizuoka to see Ieyasu.  It was a friendly meeting, but the situation had been drastically changed.  The Tokugawa samurai regime had already decided not to establish diplomatic relationships with Spain as well as Portugal.  Japanese samurai leaders were afraid of Catholicism, since Catholic Japanese did not fully obey shogun and the Tokugawa leadership.  As the Netherlands, a Protestant country, did not try to be engaged in missionary work, the Tokugawa regime opted to maintain a diplomatic tie only with the Netherlands.

So, Sebastián Vizcaíno left Japan, but his ship was wrecked just off Japan.  He returned to Japan, but shogun did not provide a new ship for the Spanish diplomat.  But as a feudal lord in Northeast Japan planned to send his own mission to the Vatican, Vizcaíno joined their voyage to return to Mexico in 1613.       

When Vizcaíno met Ieyasu, he presented many gifts from Philip III to Ieyasu.  One of the gifts was a famous clock that had been built in Flanders in 1581.  It was still kept in Japan.  And recently recovery work was started with help from British Museum, since only 20 or so clocks made 400 years ago in Europe remain today and this is one of them in better condition.



Philip III of Spain sent a few more diplomats after Vizcaíno to Japan in his effort to do a trade with Japan, since Japan was at the time known to Europe as a country of gold.  Vizcaíno reported that there was a plenty of silver and high quality of gold in Japan.  Nonetheless the father of shogun Ieyasu did not even see these diplomats from Spain.  The Tokugawa regime was going to close the door of the nation to Westerners, except  the Dutch, to avoid influences of Christianity.

It is hard to tell which was better, that Japan established a diplomatic tie with Spain and the Vatican 400 years ago, or that Japan rejected Christian influences coming into the nation as it did.  Samurai leader Ieyasu was not moved by the clock, which is the only sure thing we can tell today.

The first Western diplomat in Japan 
Shipwrecked in 1609, Rodrigo de Vivero negotiated with the shogun on establishing relations 
BY ALICE GORDENKER 
At the time of the shipwreck, Mexico was called New Spain and was part of the Spanish empire. Rodrigo de Vivero, a member of one of the richest families in New Spain, was 44 when he was named interim governor of the Philippines, which was also a Spanish territory. 
During his tenure in Manila, de Vivero had official contact with Japan, including negotiations concerning Japanese residents of the Philippines accused of fomenting civil unrest, but there was no plan for him to actually visit Japan. 
He was in fact returning to New Spain, on a route that hugged the coast of Japan, when his ship was wrecked against a reef at what is now the town of Onjuku in Chiba Prefecture. Fifty men were lost, but de Vivero and several hundred other passengers made it safely to shore with the assistance of local villagers. 
Although European missionaries and merchants had been arriving since the 1540s, Vivero was the first European diplomat and administrator ever to enter the country.
Once it was understood who de Vivero was, he was taken on guided tours of Edo, Kyoto and other cities, and was received in audience by Tokugawa Ieyasu, who had stepped down as shogun but was still the most powerful figure in the country, and his son and incumbent shogun, Hidetada. 
De Vivero also met with senior government officials, and had dealings with the renowned English mariner William Adams, who had been living in Japan for nine years. During such meetings, de Vivero attempted to influence Japanese foreign policy, in particular urging that the Dutch be expelled from Japan, and negotiated a proposed framework for future diplomatic and trade relations. 
The Spanish government never ratified the treaty, as Ruiz-Cabanas explained in his lecture. Authorities in Manila objected on the grounds that direct communication and trade between Japan and New Spain would result in a loss of influence and revenue for them. Spanish sailors feared the Japanese would gain knowledge of long-distance shipbuilding, increasing the danger of a Japanese invasion of Spanish territories. 
But Ruiz-Cabanas said his personal view is that religious considerations probably played a bigger role. News of official opposition to Catholicism in Japan “was a cause of anxiety in Madrid and the Vatican,” he said, and it was unlikely that Spain was ready to formally recognize a non-European and non-Catholic country.
“At the time, no European power had recognized any Asiatic nation, including Japan and China, as equal,” the ambassador observed. 
Shortly thereafter, Japan adopted a policy of seclusion, greatly limiting contact with New Spain and most other countries for more than 200 years.

History is God.  We cannot change it, but we have to learn any lessons and know what we are before God.

Why did God send a wrecked Spanish ship to Japan in 1609?

"they glorified God" - Emerson's Over-Soul


Around Tokyo


Emerson's Over-Soul

What is seen is made of what cannot be seen.

This is a universal result of true religions, thus Ralph Waldo Emerson even referred to Hinduism and wrote his spiritual experiences.
ESSAY IX The Over-Soul 
There is a difference between one and another hour of life, in their authority and subsequent effect. Our faith comes in moments; our vice is habitual. Yet there is a depth in those brief moments which constrains us to ascribe more reality to them than to all other experiences.
... 
Man is a stream whose source is hidden. Our being is descending into us from we know not whence. The most exact calculator has no prescience that somewhat incalculable may not balk the very next moment. I am constrained every moment to acknowledge a higher origin for events than the will I call mine.
...

We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal ONE.  And this deep power in which we exist, and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one.
... 
We know that all spiritual being is in man. A wise old proverb says, "God comes to see us without bell"; that is, as there is no screen or ceiling between our heads and the infinite heavens, so is there no bar or wall in the soul where man, the effect, ceases, and God, the cause, begins. The walls are taken away. We lie open on one side to the deeps of spiritual nature, to the attributes of God.
... 
Yet time and space are but inverse measures of the force of the soul. The spirit sports with time, —
"Can crowd eternity into an hour,
Or stretch an hour to eternity."
...

The soul is the perceiver and revealer of truth. We know truth when we see it, let skeptic and scoffer say what they choose. Foolish people ask you, when you have spoken what they do not wish to hear, 'How do you know it is truth, and not an error of your own?' We know truth when we see it, from opinion, as we know when we are awake that we are awake. It was a grand sentence of Emanuel Swedenborg, which would alone indicate the greatness of that man's perception, — "It is no proof of a man's understanding to be able to confirm whatever he pleases; but to be able to discern that what is true is true, and that what is false is false, this is the mark and character of intelligence."
... 
The character and duration of this enthusiasm varies with the state of the individual, from an ecstasy and trance and prophetic inspiration, — which is its rarer appearance, — to the faintest glow of virtuous emotion, in which form it warms, like our household fires, all the families and associations of men, and makes society possible. A certain tendency to insanity has always attended the opening of the religious sense in men, as if they had been "blasted with excess of light." The trances of Socrates, the "union" of Plotinus, the vision of Porphyry, the conversion of Paul, the aurora of Behmen, the convulsions of George Fox and his Quakers, the illumination of Swedenborg, are of this kind. What was in the case of these remarkable persons a ravishment has, in innumerable instances in common life, been exhibited in less striking manner. Everywhere the history of religion betrays a tendency to enthusiasm. The rapture of the Moravian and Quietist; the opening of the internal sense of the Word, in the language of the New Jerusalem Church; the revival of the Calvinistic churches; the experiences of the Methodists, are varying forms of that shudder of awe and delight with which the individual soul always mingles with the universal soul.
... 
The faith that stands on authority is not faith. The reliance on authority measures the decline of religion, the withdrawal of the soul. The position men have given to Jesus, now for many centuries of history, is a position of authority. It characterizes themselves. It cannot alter the eternal facts. Great is the soul, and plain.
http://www.emersoncentral.com/oversoul.htm
Conversely, in Buddhism they say, "Every form in reality is empty, and emptiness is the true form."

However, if our soul is linked with Heaven or at least the spiritual world, everything we see around us in this material world can be all emptiness in its essence, since we do not belong to them eternally eventually.

"Agree with thine adversary quickly" - Japanese behind Casablanca



A Zoo around Tokyo


Japanese behind Casablanca

The prominent movie Casablanca has some linkage with Japan, though the work produced during WWII was a kind of anti-Axis propaganda.

In the movie Europeans were trying to flee to the US, leaving Nazi Germany-controlled Europe.  They were waiting for a chance to sail to the US at the port city Casablanca in northwest Africa or Morocco under governance of France.
Richard Nikolaus Eijiro von Coudenhove-Kalergi (1894 – 1972) was an Austrian politician, geopolitician, philosopher and count of Coudenhove-Kalergi, who was a pioneer of European integration. He was the founder and President for 49 years of the Paneuropean Union. His parents were Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi, an Austro-Hungarian diplomat, and Mitsuko Aoyama, the daughter of an antiques-dealer and oil tycoon in Tokyo.
Coudenhove-Kalergi is recognized as the founder of the first popular movement for a united Europe. His intellectual influences ranged from Rudolf Kjellén and Oswald Spengler to Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche. In politics, he was an enthusiastic supporter of "fourteen points" made by Woodrow Wilson on 8 January 1918 and pacifist initiatives of Kurt Hiller. In the early 1920s he joined a Masonic lodge at Vienna, where he would reach several degrees. In 1922 he co-founded the Pan-European Union (PEU) with Archduke Otto von Habsburg, as "the only way of guarding against an eventual world hegemony by Russia".[5] In 1923, he published a manifesto entitled Pan-Europa, each copy containing a membership form which invited the reader to become a member of the Pan-Europa movement. He favored social democracy as an improvement on "the feudal aristocracy of the sword" But his ambition was to create a conservative society that superseded democracy with "the social aristocracy of the spirit".[6]
From April 1924 to March 1938, Coudenhove-Kalergi worked as an editor and principal author of the journal Paneuropa. He published his main work, the three volumes of Kampf um Paneuropa (The fight for Paneuropa) between 1925 and 1928. In 1926, the first Congress of the Pan-European Union met in Vienna funded with 60,000 marks by banker Max Warburg, and the 2,000 delegates elected Coudenhove-Kalergi president of the Central Council
After the annexation of Austria by the Third Reich in 1938, Coudenhove-Kalergi fled to Czechoslovakia, and thence to France. As France fell to Germany in 1940, he escaped to the United States by way of Switzerland and Portugal. During the war, he continued his call for the unification of Europe along the Paris-London axis. His wartime politics and peripeties served as the real life basis for fictional Resistance hero Victor Laszlo, the Paul Henreid character in Casablanca.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Count_Richard_Nikolaus_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi

So, the original movement for unification of Europe was driven by an Austrian politician whose mother was Japanese.

But how did she become the wife of Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi, an Austro-Hungarian diplomat?
Mitsuko, Countess of Coudenhove-Kalergi (1874 – 1941), formerly known as Mitsu Aoyama , was one of the first Japanese people to emigrate to Europe, after becoming the wife of an Austrian diplomat, Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi, in Tokyo. She was the mother of Richard Nikolaus Graf von Coudenhove-Kalergi. 
The daughter of an antiques-dealer and oil tycoon in Tokyo, aged 17 she met the Austro-Hungarian diplomat Dr. Count Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi when she came to help him when his horse slipped on ice (Heinrich often visited her father's shop, not far from the Austrian legation). Heinrich gained her father's permission for her to be employed as a parlour maid in the legation and then (after they fell in love) for them to marry. The latter request was refused, but the couple defied him, marrying on 16 March 1892 in Tokyo with the consent of the Austrian and Japanese foreign ministries. This left her disinherited and banned from her father's house. In 1896 she was received at an imperial reception for foreign diplomats' wives by Empress Eishō (as a commoner Mitsuko would never have been granted such an audience, but as a countess and ambassador's wife she was) and again on the end of Heinrich's diplomatic work shortly afterwards. 
The couple then returned to Europe, where Mitsuko and their two sons Johannes and Richard took over management of the family estates in Bohemian Ronsperg.
Heinrich died in 1906 and Mitsuko took over the estates and the children's upbringing and education, while studying law and economics herself. Mitsuko never again returned to Japan and when she died in 1941 she was buried in the Hietzinger Cemetery.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsuko_Aoyama
She must have experienced prejudice and discrimination in Europe on many occasions, since it was still the 19th century that she became Countess in Europe.  It might give some hint to her son Richard Nikolaus Eijiro von Coudenhove-Kalergi about evil of a divided world so that he might want to realize unified Europe where even his Japanese mother could live with less social pressure.

Mistsuko Coudenhove-Kalergi once renounced Richard when he married a famous actress while he was a student, though decades later she renounced this renunciation.

Old Mistsuko wished to be buried in her husband's grave but it was not realized.  She also wanted to have her coffin wrapped with a flag of the Rising Sun, the Japanese National Flag.

She never returned to Japan since she had left Japan for Europe with her husband in 1896, though she met mostly Japanese in Vienna in her last days.

In addition, though she died two months before the Pearl Harbor Attack, she was protected by the Japanese Embassy in Vienna from Nazis unlike her son Richard.
