The Dawn of New Age

The Dawn of New Age Details of this book
Anthropology of Nitta's theory To the evolution of civilization

To begin with:

 

The 21st century has not ever seen a sign of Japan's economic recovery.

The United States had no equal in economic power as well as politics in the 20th century.

However, there have been some signs of the U.S. powerful economy declining from the beginning of the 21st century and that affects the world itself, which is coming to be in chaos.

Some say that the current conditions of this panic don't seem so serious, compared with the Depression beginning in 1929.

We surely know that a great number of people lose their jobs and commit suicide in Japan.

Meanwhile, we can see many people buying expensive things going abroad for pleasure; we are also affluent in commodities.

To be honest, I don't think the Japanese people generally deem it to be acute.

On the contrary, we must agree that the environment of the earth has been getting worse year by year.

We also can figure out that the economic system has changed dramatically, which is now artificially controlled by the underground.

I am confident that this is caused by the decision by President Nixon of the United States in 1971 which announced to the world that the US dollars could not be exchanged for gold. As a result, the gold standard was substantially abolished; the global monetary economy lost the standard of value.

In fact, the current economic situation had started at that time.

In addition, money itself was commercialized in the 80's due to dramatic developments in computer technology that made it possible to calculate tremendous figures instantly.

The money that had been used in selling and buying goods has become merchandise itself in the nature of gambling.

As gambling is inseparable from tricks, current economy holds trickery.

I'm sure that we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel unless we recognize the fact of the economy manipulated artificially.

We must change gear back to neutral position and shift into a new paradigm or concept of the economy.

The Japanese Government advocates reforming the structure of the system, however, I don't think it can be effective.

We must build a new system of the international economy with a new concept and then educate people for a long time.

The new concept of the economy needs a new concept of richness and we will have to find out real richness that doesn't mean an abundance of money.

That is why I write this book.

The first part・The concept of richness=From matters to non-matters

 

 

Part 1 The previous history of Modernism

 

 

Chapter-1 The definition of wealth

 

The meaning of 'fortune' is legally "the whole of things with monetary value combined for a certain purpose" and in a common sense "the assembly of the property an individual or a group possesses and it is also said assets"

Then, a person who has a lot of fortune is called rich.

Meanwhile, the word 'wealth' means "money and possessions accumulated and owned by a specific economic individual or group, that is evaluated with money"

'Wealth' seems synonymous with 'fortune' but it is valued with money.

Therefore, there was no concept of wealth before the monetary system was started, though there was a concept of fortune.

We, modernized people, have much interest in how to get wealth and have been eager to obtain wealth not only legitimately but illegally.

In consequence, many government officials who should take the initiative in keeping the law caused scandals to get it even by breaking the law.

Wars are also triggered by scramble for wealth after all.

Mammonism has spread and people are pursuing wealth since most troubles and conflicts among people caused by the development of material civilization can be resolved with wealth.

Then, I would like to verify the existence of wealth, the value of currency and money that makes the standard of its amount.

Money originated in China. In the times of the Qin dynasty, the currency, kobunsen was first popularized. There had already been some simple currency such as koenhou, mobile circle coins.

The origin of money was shells, as the Chinese characters of '貨' in '貨幣' –currency- and '圓' in '古圓法' –koenhou- contain '貝' –shell-.

In ancient China, shells were used in the way which was more advanced than barter, and later they had a great effect on subsequent currency.

Today we can see many children values pretty shells like their treasures though the times have been changing, because the idea that shells are valuable is deeply ingrained in the human deoxyribonucleic acid.

The character '貝' –shell- also appears in '財' of '財産' –fortune- and '寶' –treasure-.

Making a hole in a coin and stringing coins, the koenhou and kobunsen were so easy to be carried. And also, they, which were transformed from shells, were lighter than fuhei transited from spades or touhei developed from knives.

The hole in the Kobun coin in the early stages was circular and the periphery was rough, but it changed into square and the periphery was dressed to become the basics of the shape of currency after that.

The concept of wealth came out at the time when the monetary system started about 2,700 years ago.

As mentioned above, the concept of fortune coming from the treasure of shells was much older than that of wealth.

The currency (four kinds of bills, six kinds of coins) that we now usually use in our country becomes a means of purchasing goods and the standard in estimating the items.

The core of the financial system, which is compared to a vein system of a creature called huge global economy, is money which has a wide range of its history to gain the present position.

The Keicho oval gold coin and the Kanei coin were very popular in the Edo period.

However, many kinds of currency were actually minted and the denomination complicatedly differentiated with materials into gold, silver and copper.

The beginning of the course of money in Japan was the Wado-Kaiho coin that was copied from the Kaigen-Tsuuho coin in the Tang Dynasty in China.

There was no domestic-made coin in the times that continued from the end of the Heian era to the Edo era, and a lot of imported coins and private-cast coins were used in the market.

Tokugawa Ieyasu who had won the battle at Sekigahara in 1600 started the unification of the monetary system and the Keicho oval gold and silver coins were minted the next year.

Then they specified three kinds of money of gold, silver and copper coins and the Edo Shogunate Government monopolized the right to issue the national currency.

This is called the three-kind money system.

The money made of gold was called "Ban", that made of silver was called "Bu" and "Shu" and that made of copper was called "Mon".

Exchange shops were made to stop a regional gap that occurred in the circulation of the small "Ban" and the large "Ban", the gold coins and silver coins and specially to make exchange and circulation of these money go well.

This is a model of a bank today.

In such way, currency was unified and used nationwide by the establishment of the three-kind money system in the Edo period but an original feudal bill came to be issued in each feudal domain after that.

This was the birth of the first bill in our country.

A peculiar monetary system was formed in our country as these sorts of currency, the three kinds of money Edo Shogunate had specified and the feudal original bills coexisted.

Then, entering into the modern times, a monetary domination changed to Yen with the advent of the new monetary regulation in 1871, a Bank of Japan was established in 1882 and the Bank of Japan bills what we call now money were issued in 1885 until today.

Regarding to the world, it was in Mongolia that a bill, paper money, was born for the first time in history.

The history of bills began during the Mongolian invasion in the times of famous Khubilai-Khan in the second half of the 11th century.

Money has a power, in the broad sense, to estimate the value of products and to accumulate wealth as well as to purchase articles and services.

The present monetary system, however, has not adopted so-called real money since 1971 but unreal money has been used worldwide after the Nixon Shock. (The abolition of the gold standard system)

The unreal money continuing for more than 30 years is, after all, the bank notes which is guaranteed under the state law in each country and doesn't have an actual value itself.

We are using this unreal money with no actual value on our mutual trust.

The trust in the unreal money is effective in the society we live at present only in the peaceful status without a big war, fortunately for the past 30 years we have had such a big war that we lose trust; we cannot help deploring the current fragile economic system.

The quantity of issuing money sharply increased and the money flow was promoted rapidly because the development of the global economy attributed to popularized bills after nearly 900 years since the original bill was born in Mongolia.

In the latter half of the 20th century, currency changed itself from means of exchanging and the standard of valuing into a thing or a product.

The speed and the quantity of the money flow expanded explosively while the virtual money appeared apart from the substance money.

It was the appearance of so-called derivative.

The virtual money traded in the derivatives far exceeds the amount of the substance money; the monetary system itself might be doubted to exist in the 21st century.

Our sense of greed to pursue wealth has come to extremes.

I tried to verify the history of wealth because I wanted you to recognize that wealth is essentially precious, which was symbolized by shells.

The bubble economy began with the crash of the virtual money, which was indeed the means of the accommodation dealings based on a merely verbal agreement among people.

With valuable substance money like shells, there should not have occurred the economic bubble.

There is a word, "leverage" in derivative dealings.

This leverage is a handy mixer (a whisk) to form bubble.

There is the same whisk in a human mind too.

It is a monster that manufactures limitless bubble, 'desire'.

The concept of wealth in the money economy is boundless desire to increase the unsubstantial, 'bubble'.

As far as the concept is expressed by the value of currency, this cat-and-mouse game continues forever and makes the bubble occur and burst.

Now the time has come to reconsider the definition of wealth with the 900-year-long history of bills on trust as 2700 years have passed since money was born.

 

 

Chapter-2 The idea of the stock

 

 The meaning of wealth is defined as "money and possessions accumulated and owned by a specifically economic individual or group, that is evaluated with money"

The idea of stock motivates people to have a limitless desire but why do we have to accumulate things?

Animals living with nature have a desire to look for bread for today but don't have the idea to seek bread for tomorrow.

Seeking food for tomorrow is an idea rather than a desire as they don't need any notion of considering.

They implicitly trust nature that gives them food for tomorrow when it comes tomorrow.

The concept of fortune legally means, "the whole of things with monetary value combined for a certain purpose" and in a common sense, "the assembly of the property an individual or a group possesses and it is also said assets."

The concept of fortune was familiar in a human society long before the concept of wealth.

It is because the idea of stock arose at that time.

At first, when the human being was born, they gained bread for today by hunting like other animals since they didn't have farming knowledge yet.

The bread they had got by hunting would have rotten if they didn't eat during the day because the food was the same creature they had killed.

Therefore, they couldn't leave the food for tomorrow but had no choice but to share with others.

The idea of stock could not have come out.

The difference between poverty and wealth didn't arise as a result.

Then, they have no thought of unequalness because of sharing; there was no distinction between rich and poor that arises from the difference between the dominant and the dominated. 

If so, a leader of a family was selected on another criteria.

Usually the difference of might is the criterion in case of general animals.

As the Bible says in the Genesis of the human race, they invented weapons while human beings with poor force were gradually acquiring wisdom.

With the weapons, the human race could be in the summit of animals.

Then, mental power became more essential standard than muscle.

Evolving from animals, the human race, i.e. Homo sapiens became human beings, i.e. mankind and went out of the natural world.

I understand that it is the banishment of Adam and Eve from Eden in the Bible that interprets, in terms of the ethical doctrine that the human nature is fundamentally evil, that humans originally began to live out of the natural.

A holy scripture called the Bible for the Judaism, the Christianity and the Islam are based on the ethical doctrine.

Their faith of monotheism that human beings must not disobey the direction of god because they are sinful existence is not based on metaphysics but physics that teach how to survive the severe nature. From an essential standpoint, it is appropriate to say that they are a maxim rather than religion.

I do not intend to argue religion particularly.

We have to accept that we, human beings, began to be liberated from the natural world since nature showed us out to let us be more evolved creature.

Knowing the superiority of intellect over muscle by having arms, humans cultivated intelligence to invent farming technology at last.

In switching the life style from hunting to farming, I should mention specially that the concept of stock arose.

As for the humans who discovered that crops could be saved, they began to overturn the common sense that life and danger were opposite side of the same coin.

Being in danger makes humans tense and be under stress.

Animals are incomparably so stressful that they can never sleep in the same condition as humans usually sleep.

They are always tense, that is characteristic of wild animals in particular.

Human beings came to live hard to store their food since they found out that the stock had a power to insure a safety avoiding danger.

Then, a source of the concept of fortune, the idea of stock, was born.

  

 

Chapter-3 The cause of a gap between rich people and poor people

 

Human beings didn't have a conception of rich and poor yet when the idea of stock arose inside.

We only wanted to be in a safer place out of dangerous conditions.

However, we noticed that a difference among people was born of the quantity of stock.

All of us should have stored the same amount of stock but the gap arose.

We came to know mental power outside the power of force.

We thought of what caused the difference of the quantity of stock.

Then we knew that the degree of timidity was directly proportional to the accumulated quantity.

We noticed that those who were too afraid to hunt could store more than those who were bravely hunting.

Then, people with much amount of stock were rich and those with a little amount were poor; the rich people, even if they had less force, could use the poor people even if they had much force.

There came a distinction between the dominant and the dominated.

The rich dominate the poor.

"People with strong force control weak people," that seems reasonable but actually goes only in the society of animals except the human's where intellect is the most indispensable for power to rule.

Force is dependent on individuals; the power to rule, which is dependent on organizations, surpasses force.

With the ability to unite an organization, he can be a mighty ruler even if a person has ordinary force.

Then, it comes to paradoxical, but his cowardice provokes him to increase the amount of stock and he shows his power to control the organization by boasting the amount and becomes a ruler.

On the contrary, a person with no sense of storing will be poor and dominated by the timid ones even if he is bold.

Actually, as we looked for safety in our mind, we got to suffer from schizophrenia, antinomy between physical safety and mental one, when the paradoxical logic against the law of nature came out into human society.

At first, we just sought physical (economic) safety: food, clothing and shelter.

However, intellect is necessary to seek the economic stability.

The condition of mental safety intellect requires needs much more energy than the condition of the physical stability.

Then, to seek the safety in mind causes friction against the society we live and make our life (in case of economy) sacrificed.

Religion is the typical example.

Various kinds of religion appear saying that they secure the mental peace.

Then, they reject other religion as heterodoxy and, in the end, make a religious war to kill each other.

Despite the fact that no fundamental problem has been solved for thousands of years in such history of religion, they still exist and also prosper.

How stupid we are to continue such follies!

There is no safety in human relations after all.

Rich people fear to lose and become coward.

Poor people become bold because they have nothing to lose.

Rich people become stingy because of the fear to lose.

We should recognize that the timidity causes the gap between the rich and the poor after all.

The timidity is an important key word in finding a new concept of richness, I will verify from now, in the coming ages.

I suppose that the word 'timid' suggests many negative things to you but, actually, "timid" is an important criterion to show the intellectual level.

I said many times about the difference between brave and bold.

The bold means an increase in ignorance; brave is an increase in cowardice, i.e. intellect.

There is a word, 'honest poverty'.

There is a word, 'greed'.

I believe that poorness (poverty) is pure and greed is an ignominious desire.

However, the words, "貧" –poor- and "貪" –greedy- come from the same "貝" –shell- that means wealth.

I think that the cause of the gap between rich people and poor people is the difference between the words, poor and greedy.

Poverty and wealth came from the idea of stock and the difference between poverty and wealth triggered the gap in richness.

I want to point out that the process of becoming the difference in richness is a very special paradoxical experience only in human society.

 

 

Chapter-4 The birth of the intellect

 

Now I want to trace back how we evolved from Homo sapiens called the human race.

The human race is a creature categorized into Primates, the most evolved animal among mammals.

Monkeys, chimpanzees and gorillas called troglodytes are a kind of the human race that is our ancestors in point of two-leg animals.

It is the human race of Primates that stands at the top of troglodytes.

Other mammals are almost four-leg animals.

Here is a starting point of intellect.

As for the biggest difference between two legs and four legs, have you ever noticed a link with the influence of gravity force of the earth?

Everything on the earth receives weight (gravitation), which is the centripetal force that occurs as the earth is rotating, from the core of the earth.

For the animals with four legs, the four legs are pulled by gravity.

For the animals with two legs, the two legs are pulled by gravity.

Life energy, which is given from the sun, circulating through the body of a four-leg creature is pulled to the core and, as a result, the energy that also works a brain is pulled more.

However, the influence of gravity decreases because the position of a brain of the two-leg is higher than that of the four-leg; the energy pulling the brain also lessens.

As a result, the brain functions livelier than four-leg creatures, a cortex covering a cerebrum was getting thicker and a new cortex formed on an old cortex the four-leg have to build the double formation of cortexes.

When animals with two legs sleep, they lie down.

This is to reduce the function of the brain.

Primates have the double formation of the cerebral cortex other creatures don't have and the new cortex came to have a power to promote intellectual working.

It is the birth of intellectual animals.

The inside called old cortex controls instinctive activities whereas the outside called new cortex manages rational and intellectual activities.

It is the human race that the new cortex grew most to be thicker.

Intellect arose with the switching from four-leg animals to the two-leg.

Well, why did the four-leg evolve into the two-leg originally?

With tusks and nails of forefeet as weapons degenerated more than other animals, troglodytes were so weak and always in danger that they had to be watchful as widely as possible to survive.

In the end, they became to stand up changing to the two-leg gradually.

Here, wisdom to survive the severely dangerous natural world was given to the timidly weak creatures.

I wonder if you would understand that timidity comes from the developed intellect.

 

 

Chapter-5 The starting point of the food, clothing and shelter

 

The human race identified that they were naked at first when they got to have intellect.

They had not been conscious of their nakedness since every other animal was also naked.

But they found it to know the difference from other animals by self-identifying after they came to have intellect to think.

The other important point is self-protection: the concept of dwelling.

It was essential for the human race with inferior force how to defend themselves against other creatures.

The weaker animals never fail to secure a refuge, observing the behavior of animals, since they had to survive the world where the stronger prey upon the weaker.

The weaker dogged a hole, climbed a tree and escaped from stronger enemies.

It was the beginning of the concept of dwelling.

However, it was only for cowardly weak animals including the human race.

The human race made a cave for escape.

They always lurked in the cave during night, as they knew that it was the time for the stronger to hunt.

Then, they began to worship the sun: a primitive belief. Lightness was regarded as their god of guardian because they believed that danger would have gone with the darkness when the sun rose and it got light.

Moreover, they discovered fire from the sun belief and used fire as their first weapon.

They came to know coldness in addition to warmth while fire protected them against enemies.

They had thought their life as just eating until when they were getting to know the necessity of clothes to protect against cold as well as dwellings to defend themselves from enemies.

It was “Necessity is the mother of invention” due to their weakness and timidity.

The concept of food, clothing and shelter that are the basic requirements to live was born in such way.

Chapter-73 Character formation in harmonious life

 

This is the last chapter of this book which says how we accumulate virtue.

The definition of wealth in the coming ages is not the amount of money but virtue.

To let you recognize this point, I would like to end with introducing the words of Masahiro Yasuoka, one of the greatest scholars in the study of Yang-Ming, which explain a way of forming character in harmonious life.

He had a big influence on the political and financial worlds in Japan.

He lived in the 20th century of Japan and was such a great treasure as had written the text of the speech on the end of the Pacific War for the Showa Emperor.

 

“The person who is excellent as a character is called a man of character.

What kind of character and human nature does the man of character have?

 

(Guts)

The first character of the man is guts related to physical and mental power.

It doesn't mean appearance such as height or weight, physique, or aggressive disposition which is shown in his speech and behavior.

On that point, it is rather the contrary: he looks quiet but is persevering and full of power and executive ability.

It is a matter of potential energy.

No one can be patient if his guts aren't cultivated.

His precious ideal and education just become a concept and a sentiment; he ends up becoming a person who holds looker-onism of life, isolationism, escapism or cowardly compromisism.

 

(Ambition)

Guts are an activity with genetic invention like an absolute being that tries to realize his life and has an idea that shall be always realized.

This is called ambition.

Ambition is not imagination.

 

(Principle)

As far as ambition is attained, human beings know self-examination with our morals and intellect and finally draw a clue of the judgment on what is good or not about our thoughts and acts.

This is called principle.

Principle is one of practice.

 

(Insight)

The competence to judge on what is justice or profit about our thoughts and behavior and whether it is conscientiously affirmed by anyone or it is a merely selfish desire is called insight.

Insight is different from knowledge.

Knowledge can be acquired by mechanical work of intellect but it is not insight itself.

Insight isn't cultivated without ambition or studying through various experiences of contradiction, resistance, physics and mentality.

 

(Capability)

Therefore, human beings have a standard, a criterion, for a variety of experiences in our real life.

People are one of receptacles, if saying from their figure, but it is called a degree of capability compared to a scale.

The word 'capable person' has been often used from the old days that means a person who can accept many people but, in other words, a person who can accept and process a variety of distress and pains in his life like contents in a receptacle.

 

(Belief)

Such a person is going to be sophisticated with experiences in his life that gradually brings great depth, certainty and immovability of ambition and judgment.

It is called belief.

 

(Benignity)

The resonance caused between all creation and human beings is called love.

Supposing that knowledge is the logic of brain, feeling is the logic of heart and guts.

The virtue which tries to live with all creation and cultivate its life is called consideration.

The benignity becomes limitless mercy to doubtful and distressed creatures.

The emotion of mercy and benignity is the noblest element of character; the belief makes a person sacred along with the virtue.

People don't have to be intellect.

They don't have to be a man of ability.

However, it is necessary to be a man of compassion.

 

(Gracefulness)

When the virtue and human personality blend in with each other, space, life and human beings are in harmony.

Humans themselves become lyric beings.

It is called gracefulness.

After character is formed, it restfully calms down to be soft and harmonious, voice contains rhyme and it is unconsciously rhythmical as a whole.”

 

As a stance on daily life to obtain these elements for character formation in harmonious life, Masahiro Yasuoka suggested some advice as follows: 

 

Suitable diet

Sleep well every night

No bad habit which affects mind and body

Exercise properly

No emotional instability in daily life

Keep on working as usual in fluctuating situation

Try to concentrate on daily work

Suitable work

Life work

Don't be bored with work and life

Be aware of issues

Be sincere to others

Make effort to bring up a man of character

Make effort in obtaining knowledge and technology to be an expert

Have religion, belief and philosophy

 

Now we need to listen to the words of such a sacred person.

 

 

The first part・At the end

 

I gave this book a big title “The Concept of Richness” but, in simple words, I believe the beauty of mind is the most important while society only values money.

You should do good deeds to cultivate virtue.

However, much you earn money, after you die the Lord of Hades take them away asking you, “Well, what have you done to please others in your life?”

So, it is essential for you to endeavor to do so every day in order to be able to answer to him proudly.

I wanted to say it to you.

I've finished this book mostly with listing sentences because I've been keeping the thoughts.

Suspending six works I'm writing now, I've finished off this book and now am writing this at 5:00 in the morning.

I thought it is my urgent duty to convey his spirit, turning toward Yoshida Shoin who had lived his life with all his energy to die at only 30.

I am little tired but satisfied.

 

The newly-born age shall be opened by the real deal

Prologue

 

Since then it took almost 10 years now it was September 2011 when not only America was going to declare the nation’s default but countries of European Union were facing the budget deficit.

This is entirely the fact that,

The monetary system is going to collapse very soon.

Peter Ferdinand Drucker called futurist was reported to have said that,

It had been the age of organization up to the 20th century but will be the age of individual from the 21st century.

It will be possible if each of Japanese could make his capability up in order to build the newly-born intelligence on the basis of new sense of view to stand at the stage of the dawn of new age.

The key-word is “the dawn of new age”.

We can figure out if we look down the history that each age was changing from the age of organization into the age of individual or from the age of individual into the age of organization when the new age came out.

It was the changing from the age of individual into the age of organization when the civilized society had changed from the ancient times to the middle ages.

It was the changing from the age of organization into the age of individual when the civilized society had changed from the middle ages into the early modern period.

It was the changing from the age of individual into the age of organization when the civilized society had changed from the early modern period into the modern times.

It will be the changing from the age of organization into the age of individual when the civilized society had changed from the modern times into the new age.

This is entirely the proof that,

The changing for the age of organization up to the 20th century into the age of individual from the 21st century is nothing but the dawn of new age.

The aiming of this book is to find out the complete diametrically idea from the conventional Nitta philosophy and Nitta view of history.

Part 7 The day when money is going to disappear   

 

 

Chapter-74 The biggest hero who has been supporting the civilized society is money

 

It was 12,000 years ago when the civilized society was born by appearing of farming and browsing life style called the first wave of civilization.

And,

War was born among the human society because of transformation from hunting life style into farming life style.

And,

Monetary system was also born among the human society because of transformation from hunting life style into farming life style.

This is entirely the proof that,

The civilization had a lot of things to do with the monetary system.

And,

Discrimination/unfair/wars which are only in the human society were not born of the hunting life style society but born of the farming and browsing life style society.

In paradoxically saying,

Even the human society is involved with the natural society if it is the hunting life style society.

Otherwise,

The story of Adam and Eve who were expelled from the Garden of Eden was a symbolized story which showed the human society had changed into the farming & browsing life style from the hunting life style.

This is entirely the proof that,

The civilized society is nothing but the farming & browsing life style society,

The farming & browsing life style society was the culprit having made discrimination/unfair/wars,

Discrimination/unfair/wars was the culprit having made the male-oriented society,

The male-oriented society was the culprit having made the dual structured society of ruler and ruled with succession and inheritance discriminatory system,

The dual structured society of ruler and ruled with succession and inheritance discriminatory system was the culprit having made religion and science,

Religion and science were the culprits having made our human beings to have to live a life with anxious, agony and finally fear of death,

The human society with anxious, agony and finally fear of death was the culprit having made the civilized society,

The civilized society was the culprit having made the monetary system.

And,

This is entirely the timing that,

Money is going to disappear very soon.

To make matter worse,

This is entirely the timing that,

Conventional economy is going to disappear very soon.

It was 12,000 years ago when the civilized society was born by appearing of farming and browsing life style called the first wave of civilization.

And,

War was born among the human society because of transformation from hunting life style into farming life style.

And,

Monetary system was also born among the human society because of transformation from hunting life style into farming life style.

This is entirely the proof that,

The civilization had a lot of things to do with the monetary system.

And,

Páx Romana was born of appearing of farming and browsing life style called the first wave of civilization,

Páx Britannica born of appearing of the Industrial Revolution called the second wave of civilization,

Páx Americana born of appearing of the Information Revolution called the third wave of civilization.

On the other hand,

Páx Romana was collapsed by the monetary system had been collapsed,

Páx Britannica was collapsed by the monetary system had been collapsed,

Páx Americana shall be collapsed by the monetary system had been collapsed.

This is entirely the proof that,

The collapse of monetary system shall be born of printing too much money.

Once upon a time,

Páx Romana was collapsed by making too much malignant gold coin,

Páx Britannica was collapsed by printing too much pound sterling,

Páx Americana shall be collapsed by printing too much US dollar.

In other words,

The monetary system must be built by balancing between the amount of money and goods to be bartered.

Furthermore,

The best good to be bartered is gold which can make any other goods to barter without the monetary system.

Hence,

It can be said as the healthiest situation for economy if the amount of gold and the amount of money is well balancing.

Take human’s body as economy for instance,

The human’s body by 60 kg is the human world and around 70 % out of body which is 42 liters of liquid is the total amount of world economy and 6 liters of blood is the total amount of money.

Hence,

The total amount of money must be approximately 500 trillion yen for healthiest economy situation because the total amount of economy which is to be the total GDP in the world by approximately 3,500 trillion yen.

However,

The current amount of money has been forged approximately 10,000 trillion yen.

This is entirely the proof that,

The collapse of monetary system shall be born of printing too much money.

Once upon a time,

Páx Romana was collapsed by making too much malignant gold coin,

Páx Britannica was collapsed by printing too much pound sterling,

Páx Americana shall be collapsed by printing too much US dollar.

This is entirely the proof that,

The civilized society having been lasting for 12,000 years is going to reach the money capitalism which shows the end of the civilized society.

From the sense of view point,

The civilized society has got a lot of things with money.

 

 

Chapter-75 Pax Chinoa is coming?

 

Páx Romana was collapsed by making too much malignant gold coin,

Páx Britannica was collapsed by printing too much pound sterling,

Páx Americana shall be collapsed by printing too much US dollar.

The first wave of civilization created the Páx Romana.

The second wave of civilization created the Páx Britannica.

The third wave of civilization created the Páx Americana.

Then,

Does the fourth wave of civilization create the Páx Chinoa?

Or,

Does the newly-born society come because the wave of civilization last up to the third wave?

It is obvious to say,

The answer to this question is appearing in the 2010’s.

 

 

Chapter-76 Merit & demerit of money

 

The civilized society has got a lot of things with money.

Civilization in the civilized society is as below mentioned.

(1) Advanced education

(2) Civilization on city

The abundant life by mass production and humanity with equality chance in the modern society.

Metaphysical property such as religion, morality and art by human technology.

However,

The more matured civilization in the modern times has become just for material abundance.

Eventually,

People in the modern times has just focused the merit of money but forgotten the demerit of money.

Then,

What is the demerit of money?

Then,

The first thing to be understood is that money has neither merit nor demerit essentially.

In paradoxically saying,

Man has just made the merit as well as demerit of money by his natural character.

In other words,

The essence of money is not to be stocked but to be used.

Therefore,

The demerit of money is nothing but “to stock”.

On the other hand,

The merit of money is nothing but “to use”.

This is entirely the proof that,

“Richness” is typical demerit of money because the one who stocks money called rich.

On the other hand,

“Poorness” is typical merit of money because the one who uses money but not stock called poor.

This is entirely proof that,

In dualism expression,

"The one who stocks" and "the one who does not stock" are two aspects of one coin,

 "The one who does not stock" is substantial and "the one who stocks" is just absent concept of "the one who does not stock".

In other words,

"Richness" and "poorness" are two aspects of one coin,

 "Poorness" is substantial and "richness" is just absent concept of "poorness”.

As a result,

Only we human beings have lived a misunderstanding life in seeking for "the one who stocks" and getting rid of "the one who does not stock".

In other words,

Only we human beings have lived a misunderstanding life in seeking for "richness" and getting rid of "poorness".

This is entirely proof that,

Only we human beings have lived a misunderstanding life in seeking for insubstantial demerit of money and getting rid of substantial merit of money.

This is entirely proof that,

The demerit of money is nothing but to seek for an insubstantial "richness".

 

Chapter-77 illusionary money

 

This is entirely proof that,

The demerit of money is nothing but to seek for an insubstantial "richness".

In paradoxically saying,

This is entirely proof that,

The merit of money is nothing but to get rid of substantial "poorness" essentially.

What does this fact mean?

This is entirely an illusionary man-made story that,

The virtual economy based on the virtual money seeks for insubstantial “richness”.

It was essentially a real economy based on the substantial “poorness” which could have been flowing in the real human society.

This is entirely as same story as that,

The human’s body by 60 kg is the human world and around 70 % out of body which is 42 liters of liquid is the total amount of world economy and 6 liters of blood is the total amount of money.

Hence,

The total amount of money must be approximately 500 trillion yen for healthiest economy situation because the total amount of economy which is to be the total GDP in the world by approximately 3,500 trillion yen.

However,

The current amount of money has been forged approximately 10,000 trillion yen.

To make matter worst,

Total amount of virtual money has been expanding more than 100 times of real cash printed by 10,000 trillion Yen.

This is so called by economical terms as leverage.

Eventually,

This is the present money market where the more real money by 20 times of 10,000 trillion yen than normal amount of real money by 500 trillion Yen the more virtual money by 100 times of 10,000 trillion yen by 1,000,000 trillion Yen than abnormal amount of real money by 10,000 trillion yen.

This is entirely the illusionary money market born of illusionary money.

 

 

Chapter-78 Standard money looks sick

 

Substanial money is called standard money which is possible to change into gold.

Take the world economy by 3,500 trillion Yen for instance,

500 trillion Yen must be total printed money as standard money,

but 10,000 trillion Yen is not standard money but must be imaginary money, to make matter worse, 1,000,000 trillion Yen must be illusionary money in the current money market.

Why most of advanced countries in the world can keep maintaining their bankrupt position for more than 25 years in case of private company to have already gone bankrupt?

Total amount of budget deficits has become almost 2,000 trillion Yen among America and Japan.

In case of standard money economy,

2,000 trillion Yen of budget deficit is almost dead situation because it is 20 liters bleeding out of total water liquid by 42 liters.

In case of imaginary money economy,

2,000 trillion Yen of budget deficit is not so serious situation because it is 1.2 liters bleeding out of total water liquid by 42 liters.

In case of illusionary money economy,

2,000 trillion Yen of budget deficit is something scratch because it is 0.012 liters bleeding out of total water liquid by 42 liters.

This is entirely something scratching for each countries budget deficits in case of illusionary money economy.

Part 36 The dawn of the Newly-born Age

 

 

Chapter-172 The core of the newly-born age is the woman society

 

The civilized society for the past 12,000 years was the man society which is coming to end soon.

And,

The man society (The civilized society) has reached to the modern informational society since the ancient slavery society, the Middle Ages feudalism society, the Middle and modern autocracy society and the modern democratic society while the age of organization and the age of individual had been repeating each other.

And in final,

The dawn of the newly-born age is coming very soon after the modern informational society which has been the extension from the modern democratic society.

However,

The society of the newly-born age is not the extension from the ancient slavery society, the Middle Ages feudalism society, the Middle and modern autocracy society and the modern democratic society.

In other words,

The society of the newly-born age is not the extension from the civilized society.

This is entirely the proof that,

The society of the newly-born age is the beyond civilized society.

And,

The age of organization and the age of individual are not repeating each other but only the age of individual keeps going in the age of the beyond civilized society.

And,

The core of the newly-born age will be woman.

This is entirely the proof that,

The core of the newly-born age will be the woman society.

The reason for this is that,

The conventional civilized society was that,

①The dual structured society of ruler and ruled with succession and inheritance discriminatory system,

②The society ruled by religion and science,

③The man society,

The triangle structured society.

On the other hand,

The reason for this is that,

The beyond civilized society at the newly-born age will be that,

①Sense of view beyond double structured society of ruler and ruled & succession and inheritance discriminatory system,

②Sense of view beyond religion and science,

③Sense of view beyond anxious, agony and finally fear of death,

④Society without discrimination, unfair and wars,

The society structured by the square with a centre of

⑤The woman society

In another expression,

The newly-born beyond civilized society shall be that,

In other words,

The human society from the 21st century shall be that,

①The well-balanced society with equality and capability,

②The republican wisdom society with democracy and philosophy,

③The society where we have lived a life without anxious, agony and finally fear of death,

④The society with equality/fair/peace.

The society structured by the square with a centre of

⑤The woman society

 

 

Chapter-173 The newly-born sense of value at the newly-born age

 

The natural society (The earth/The universe) is nothing but the beyond world that all the creations must be expressed as one coin.

Then,

What kind of world that all the creations must be expressed as one coin?

Therefore, first of all,

We must understand the essence of one coin.

(1) One means the only one world = the substantial world of monism. 

(2) One coin means there are two faces = the world of dichotomy.

(3) One coin having two faces means the world of trilism. 

Hence,

We must understand that discrimination and equality are not antinomy.

In paradoxically saying,

We must understand that discrimination and equality are complementary.

This is entirely the proof that,

The idea of going beyond between discrimination and equality is nothing but the idea that discrimination and equality are complementary.

This is entirely the proof that,

The newly-born sense of value at the newly-born age is nothing but the beyond idea.

 

 

Chapter-174 The newly-born idea = the idea going beyond virtue and evil =the beyond theory

 

The natural society (The earth/the universe) is nothing but the beyond world that all the creations must be expressed as one coin.

In other words,

There is neither the feeling of virtue nor the feeling of evil in the natural society (the earth/the universe).

Hence,

To eat or to be eaten has nothing to do with the feeling of virtue and evil.

However,

The very strong concept of virtue and evil has something to do with the human society.

And,

So, called discriminator in the human society is called the evil one who poses as the evil one.

On the other hand,

So, called equalitarian in the human society is called the virtue one, the hypocrite.

However,

This is entirely the truth of universe that,

The evil one who poses as the evil one is substantial and the virtue one, the hypocrite is just an absent concept of the evil one who poses as the evil one.

Hence,

The newly-born idea = the idea going beyond virtue and evil is nothing but the idea which goes beyond the evil one who poses as the evil one as well as the virtue one, the hypocrite =the beyond theory.

In other words,

The newly-born idea = the idea going beyond virtue and evil =the beyond theory must go beyond the false one.

In paradoxically saying,

The newly-born idea = the idea going beyond virtue and evil =the beyond theory must be the real deal-oriented idea.

 

 

Chapter-175 The newly-born age is the age of the real deal-oriented idea

 

The newly-born idea = the idea going beyond virtue and evil =the beyond theory must be the real deal-oriented idea.

And,

The false one is not only the evil one who poses as the evil one but also the virtue one, the hypocrite.

This is entirely the proof that,

The one who asks for virtue or evil is nothing but the false one.

In other words,

This is entirely the proof that,

The one who goes beyond virtue and evil can be said as the real deal.

Then,

What is the situation which goes beyond virtue and evil?

This is entirely the proof that,

To be conscious is to goes beyond.

Hence,

Not only to do virtue with conscious but also to do evil with conscious is nothing but the real deal is doing.

In paradoxically saying,

Not only to do virtue without conscious but also to do evil without conscious is nothing but the false one is doing.

This is entirely the proof that,

The real deal is nothing but the one who is doing everything with conscious.

On the other hand,

The false one is nothing but the one who is doing everything without conscious.

And,

Even we human beings are not allowed to exist in a moment without conscious because we are part of the earth (the natural society).

It is because that the earth has conscious because it is moving (rotating and revolving).

In other words,

To be conscious is nothing but to make motion.

Hence,

We human beings are also the conscious one.

In other words,

This is entirely the proof that,

The real deal is nothing but the one who is doing everything with conscious.

On the other hand,

The false one is nothing but the one who is doing everything without conscious.

And,

All the creations in the natural society have live a life with conscious.

Since,

They don’t think that to kill is neither virtue nor evil.

They just kill with conscious.

Since,

They kill others in case of feeling hungry but don’t kill in case of feeling satisfaction.

On the other hand,

We human beings have lived a life without conscious.

Since,

We believed in killing as evil.

However,

We kill others without conscious.

Since,

We kill others not only in case of feeling hungry but also in case of feeling satisfaction.

This is entirely the proof that,

The law or rule in the human society cannot be applied to the law of the natural society because we should not be offended even to kill in wars.

This is entirely the proof that,

The real deal is nothing but the one who is doing everything with conscious.

On the other hand,

The false one is nothing but the one who is doing everything without conscious.

 

 

Chapter-176 The newly-born age shall be opened by the real deal

 

The civilized society for the past 12,000 years has been sustained by the false one who is doing everything without conscious.

In other words,

The man society has been the false society.

On the other hand,

The newly-born beyond civilized society shall be sustained by the real deal who is doing everything with conscious.

In other words,

The woman society shall be the real deal society.

The Dawn of New Age This page's impressive page
Anthropology of Nitta's theory To the evolution of civilization

At the end

 

“The concept of richness” was written at January 2002 and as a result “The Dawn of Newly-born Age” has been gone over in 2012.

In conclusion,

We can figure out that,

The 21st century shall have the role of opening the dawn of newly-born age.

And,

The keywords shall be “The age of individual” and “The woman society”
