"an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream" - The More You Have, The Closer to Zero You Are


The More You Have, The Closer to Zero You Are

Think about a number line.


It continues toward the infinity.

But this number line can be divided into the two domain: a domain of the numbers between 0 and 1 and another domain of the numbers between 1 and the infinity.

The fist domain is full of real numbers such as 0.1, 0.01, 0.0001, ..., 0.9, 0.99, 0.999, etc.  The number of the real numbers included in this domain is the infinity.

The second domain is also full of real numbers such as 9.9, 99.99, 999.999...999999.999999, etc.  The number of the real numbers included in this domain is the infinity.

Any number N that belongs the second domain can be reversed to 1/N.  Though N is larger than 1, 1/N is smaller than 1.  Therefore 1/N belongs to the first domain of the real numbers between 0 and 1.

Any big number can be reversed, and they correspond to each other as one to one.
 N => 1/N

For example, 10 => 1/10 = 0.1
100 => 1/100 = 0.01
1,000,000 => 1/1,000,000 = 0.000001

It means the second domain can be expressed by the first domain.  Even the infinity can be applied to this relationship.
Infinity => 1/Infinity => 0

So, instead of following the number line from 0 toward the infinity passing 1, we can proceed to 1 and then return toward 0 with the relationship, N => 1/N, in mind.  We can really approach to the infinity in this scheme with just the line segment between 0 and 1.

So, we see that the infinity can be represented by 0 viewed in the reverse direction from 1, though the relationship, N => 1/N, should be kept in mind.

The line segment from 0 to 1 can be equivalent to the infinite-length line number from 1 to the infinity.  It is because the relationship N => 1/N is a one-to-one relationship.  It implies that we may think that there is the same amount of real numbers between 0 to 1 as that between 1 to the infinity.

The life in this world is like following the number line.  While we are living, we pass the number point 1.  We continue to live, accumulating knowledge, experiences, and money toward the infinity.  But we are reversed toward 0.

If we have faith, we should stop accumulating money toward the infinity (though actually reversed to zero).

The more you accumulate money, the closer you approach zero, since God should apply the reciprocal transformation to your life and money.

That is why there have been no rich men in the human history who has been enlightened to grasp truth of the human existence.  Rather, the richer a man is, the closer he is to total foolishness.

It also indicates spiritual structure of the human mind.  The mind of any poor man is equivalent to to the mind of any rich man or learned man.  In the mind of a poor man, you can find surely something equivalent to what the richest man or the most learnt has in his mind.

You should not belittle any poor man or any uneducated man.

"but thy disciples fast not?" - Follow Christ Jesus and Talk about Truth

Around Tokyo

Follow Christ Jesus and Talk about Truth

It is strange that there are no places in the world where people can argue openly and collectively matters related to death and life as well as God and Satan.

Even there are no many public occasions where people can argue openly and collectively rich and poor, good and evil, and justice and injustice.

Is it because it is assumed that all the people share the same view on these matters?

Indeed, the most important things for individuals are never discussed openly.  Or are leaders in the world working behind the scene no to make people discuss these matters openly?

Everybody is afraid of death.  But mostly people never discuss the meaning of death with others.  Even it is thought to be good manners not to mention religion that includes matters directly related to death and life.

In this context, the words of Christ Jesus are precious.  Christ Jesus said, for example, that rich men cannot enter Heaven while God loves the poor.

As Christ Jesus told to follow Him, every follower of Him should discuss those matters openly.  Through such discussions, we may be able to talk about truth of the world and humanity eventually.

Mar 2:18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
Mar 2:19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

"which was spoken by Jeremy" - Japan and Economics

Around Tokyo

Japan and Economics

What is an object for economics.

Is it to make everybody rich or make a country richer despite the gap between the poor and the rich is increasing?  Or is it intended to serve wealthy people or ambitious guys trying to be wealthy.

In any non-nonsense technology, there is a concrete object to achieve.  But economics has no such object.  It is just reasoning and interpreting economic phenomena.

Economics might be serving governments that are responsible to maintain good economic status of nations.  But what is good economic status?  Avoiding inflation or deflation, or depression or recession?

However, economics itself has no power.  It can have power only when its proposals are adopted by governments.   And, even if it proposes any policies to governments, they are not based on scientific and technological principles.  And, effects of the objects of policies it offers cannot be scientifically evaluated, since it is wealthy people that have the biggest influential power on governments.  If their profits are secured and increased, wealthy people would support a policy economics offers no matter how much it is useless for poor people.

However, it may be thought that economics guides a government to taking reasonable policies to achieve an ideal state of economy of the nation.  But what is the ideal state of economy in one country in the era of globalized economy.

For example, Japan is said to have spent futile 20 years in depression.  Its GDP has just increased a little in these 20 years.  But Japanese have been working hard in these 20 years as before when it marked a great economic growth.  How has economics guided the Japanese Government?

But the fact is that Japanese businesses have shifted their production bases and business activities to foreign countries where labor costs are low and markets are big, in order to cope with globalization of economy.  Japanese businesses relocated plants and factories to China and Southeast Asian countries as well as the US and other countries in other regions.  It helped economic growth of China and ASEAN countries as well as South Korea and Taiwan.  As a result, East Asia became the fastest growing economic zone in the world.

From a global point of view, what Japanese businesses have done in the so-called 20 years has greatly contributed to growth of the world economy.  Indeed, it is better for 2 billion East Asians to be rich than for 120 million Japanese to be much richer.  And it is what Japanese economy has done.  However, no economists proposed such an idea.  

Before the end of WWII, most of East Asia was ruled by the UK, France, the Netherlands, the US, etc.  Part of China was colonized by the UK.  Most of Indochina was colonized by the UK and France.  Indonesia was colonized by the Netherlands.  India was a colony of the UK; the Philippines was a colony of the US.  But today, these regions are enjoying high economic growth due to Japan's contribution.

Economics had no object of making East Asian countries rich before WWII and even 20 years ago.  But what made Japan contribute to the economic success of China, South Korea, Taiwan, Southeast Asian countries, etc.?

The history is above economics.

"when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat" - Money Imitating Power of God

Around Tokyo

Money Imitating Power of God

Money is a universal thing.  No matter how different two people are in terms of nationality, language, and religion, they can find the same value in a same amount of money.  So, money is so deeply rooted in the nature of humanity.

However, there is another concept, God, that is shared by all the people in the world, though some people believe not one God but many gods.  However, a superior spiritual existence is acknowledged by most people though some deny such existence while they use their minds that are also partially spiritual.

Moreover, the concept of Satan or devils or ill spirits is also common among people.  The distinction between good and bad is also universal.  At the ultimate end of good people often see God, and at the opposite end people often see Satan.

But rich people have less faith in God.  They may sometimes thank God for their success, but they gradually forget God as they are busy enjoying their riches.  But for whatever reason if a man has stopped thanking God, Satan is rejoiced.

And, most of tribes have myths that their ancestors were born from a god or had some linkage with a god.  But those gods do not request many things to the people.  Accordingly, most of people in any tribes in the world can pursue their material happiness without minding gods their ancestors were linked to.

The first religion that teaches God of mankind is Christianity.  This God is not linked to any specific tribe in a biased manner, though it happened to be the God of Hebrews.  Islam also adopted this concept of the universal God.  In this context Christianity is unique.  The notion that all the members of mankind should know their only God was a so revolutionary teaching in most of people who first encountered Christianity in these 2000 years.

That is why concept of the only and sole God who is the creator of the universe has become common among all the people in the world.  Then the concept of Satan accompanied the concept of God.  And the natural recognition of good and bad among people was reviewed along with this notion of the one and only God.

And the tension between God and Satan is reflected in the gap of the rich and the poor.  It is because Satan knows that if a man becomes rich, his mind gets away from God.  Money is used by Satan as a concrete means to make men rich and thus make them forget God.

Even before the emergence of Christ, people had concepts of gods, devils, spiritual entities, and good and bad, but Christ made it clear that there is only and one God, a good spiritual entity, who has an enemy called Satan, a bad spiritual entity, who is trying to alienate men by use of money.

The reason why Satan is using money as a major means to alienate men from God is that Satan knows that something related to money is deeply rooted in humanity.  It is that money has spiritual power to rule the material goods, services, systems, human relationships and the world.  It looks like power of God.

Put simply Satan created money imitating power of God, so that is why people could understand money when they first encountered it in history.

Satan is really smart, but his evil scheme will be broken eventually, since God will someday put an end to this money game.

"and destitute of daily food" - The Poor Christians Destroyed the Roman Empire

Around Tokyo

The Poor Christians Destroyed the Roman Empire

There is a theory that the Roman Empire collapsed due to an increasing gap between the rich and the poor in the Empire.

Rich men in the Empire lived in Rome and other big cities.  Those who were rich living in Rome were the elite citizens.   They included senators or high-ranking bureaucrats close to an emperor with political power.  The Roman Civilization was supported and led by them.  But if they came to loose respect from a majority of Roman citizens who were not rich, the administrative framework of the Empire must have been shaken, weaken, and dysfunctional.  In this state, if other tribes with strong military power were invading the territory of the Empire, the elite Roman citizens could not unify all the citizens and troops to effectively fight and defeat the invaders.

What's more, Christianity was prevailing especially among poor citizens.  They must have regarded the rich elite of the Empire as anti-Christ.  Rome must have been regarded as a city of anti-Christ people.  Accordingly, no poor citizens became faithful or enthusiastic soldiers to defend Rome against invading foreign tribes.

Unlike in China where collapse of one dynasty was followed by immediate establishment of another dynasty with cultural succession, when the Western Roman Empire collapsed or when the rich elite of Rome lost power, no new leaders arising from poor citizens took over.  It is as if those poor citizens had refused to take over the Civilization.  It should be because most of those poor citizens were Christians who wanted termination of prosperity of anti-Christ Rome.

According to this theory, the Western Roman Empire went to ruin because poor citizens wanted the total collapse of Rome with the anti-Christ rich elite of Rome.

So, people continued to live outside Rome and other cities in Italy after the fall of the Roman Empire without abandoning their farm lands or living in villages.  They never tried to restore the Empire or to establish a new empire.  Probably, the new leader, the Vatican, must have forbidden people to dream of building another empire.

If early Popes had been truly honest, they should not have been satisfied with Romans adopting Christianity as as their state religion but should have wished a total fall and extinction of the Empire.  It is because Christ Jesus was executed by Roman soldiers.  In this context, the Roman Empire fell fatally due to hidden antagonism of the early Vatican against the Empire.  And, it was so grave that the truth must have been hidden in the history, the truth that the Vatican secretly worked for accelerating the fall of Rome.

Put simply, the critical cause of the fall of the Western Roman Empire is the will of the Vatican and poor Christians who hated anti-Christ Rome.  And it looks so natural that Christ Jesus had been executed by Romans.

Jam 2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
Jam 2:16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

"a stumblingblock before the children of Israel," - Issue of Rich and Poor: the Universal Underlying Factor

Around Tokyo

Issue of Rich and Poor: the Universal Underlying Factor

When you are poor and see a rich man having big money, you may like to attack him to steal money.

But in most cases you don't.  But why?

Laws and regulations might stop you from committing such a crime.  Or ethics you have been taught in society since your childhood might stop you.  Or your own inherent sense of justice might stop you.

But even if you don't respect laws and regulation, ethics in society, and your own sense of justice, you might not dare to attack the rich man as long as you are an honest Judaist, Christian, or Muslim, since the religions forbid such a sin.

But if you don't respect any religions, you would not attack and rob the rich man of his money so long as you are afraid of God.

But if you don't ultimately admit existence of God, teaching of God, and power of God, you might attack the rich men for you to be rich while making the rich man poor.

Put extremely, all the rich men today living have done similar things to attacking some rich men to steal their money.  Put extremely, they have also become rich by duping or neglecting poor men or by even attacking and robbing poor men of whatever money they had.

The ultimate question a man should face is which his becoming rich would rejoice more, God or Satan.  And if he doesn't mind disappointing God and satisfying Satan, he would surely to be rich by sacrificing others.

Fair competition is a trick.  It is a concept used by rich men to justify their wrongdoings.  No matter if competition is fair, a result should be also fair without causing a gap between winners and losers.  Self-responsibility is also a concept coined by followers of Satan to justify their negligence of poor people.

From the beginning, if human beings think about God all the days as God wishes, they would have no time to think about how to get rich.  If all the human beings think about God all the time as God wishes, there will be no rich men, no rich countries, and no material riches in the human world.  In this context, poverty can be measure of piousness of human beings.

Looking at history in a longer term, it is poor people that changed society and the world.  Every critical war and revolution was decided by movement of poor people, and every major religion spread first among poor people.  Every scientific and technological breakthrough was carried out by poor men.  It is because poor men can be more blessed by God.  Without this interference by God to the human history through poor people, the human world must be a kind of hell today with rich men suppressing, abusing, and controlling poor men without restriction in poor conditions.

The issue of rich and poor is the universal underlying factor of every problem in the world, since it is directly related to the relationships between mankind and God and between mankind and Satan.
