I have been well known as a man with no secret, which sometimes creates a problem for those who need to keep secrets. In early 1980s, one of my friends Dr Lance Rucker published his novel entitled “No Secret”, which is a detective story based on his 2 week stay with me at HPI Institute in Atami, Japan. When he first brought his novel to a publisher, he turned it down and told Lance “The key character is not realistic.” Later he successfully published it on his own. (Note: No secrets, Lance Rucker. Please see Amazon.com or LanceRucker.com.)
“Needs” mean something without which anyone can’t survive, which is common to all the people on earth. For example, food, water and safe sleeping station. “Wants” and “demands” are different. If it is less than all people, it is a want or a demand. We tend to use the word “demand”, when it involves a large group. It is very much related to the theory of capitalism vs communism.
Some people are good at rote memory. I personally am strong with social memory, and very weak with rote memory. This is a matter of self analysis. Why did I do so poorly, when it comes with rote memory. For example, when we were learning German at school, all the grammatical rules were rote memory. I was at the bottom of the class. Then they turned into translation of German, and I immediately went to the top of the class, because putting phrases together assembling them and connecting these terms, I could grasp them quickly.
Democracy and elective democracy are different. We should get rid of elective democracy, having to deal with so many people we don’t know. They should not exist. A dictator comes from a party. They are elective. 160412
What is different between sane people and insane people/abnormal people? An insane person can be seen as sane in this context of group but insane for the other. Look at Hitler. People would say what he did and planed how to kill all the Jews on earth. That is insane. But German people did not think it was so insane. They had good reasons to go alone with him to quite extent. Many of them did anyway. Jewish people had a very strong influence on all people on earth. 160422

The circle represents the surface of a human being, while the space inside the circle is the inside of a human being. The solid straight line represents past experience, and the outer segment represents experience with temperature, smell, sound, light and color. The intersection between the circle and the solid line represents experience with taste and contact. The inner segment represents memory or perception based on experience. The center of the circle represents evaluation of present conditions in context with the potential of our future.
I’m watching a TV program. I feel a pain in my stomach. I tap the interactive mode key on the remote control lying at my hand. The TV goes interactive. The screen shows graphics and words – each with a number. I tap 3 – the number for health care. A front view, back view and side views of a human body shows with numbered sections of the body. On the channel selector I tap 1 which shows on top of the frontal view and 3 which is printed in the abdominal area. A large view of the abdominal area shows with a digit for each of 9 sections. I tap 2 which centers the pain on the upper left side of the abdominal section. Lists of graphics and words appear each preceded by a digit with a reason for its order. One list is a scale of the magnitude of discomfort or pain, another addresses time or timing, others list effects from position changes, finger pressure etc. – to the limits of what one can detect from oneself. Tapping the number keys in my hand is fast and handy but I might talk in the numbers of the words beside them too when the voice recognition devices are OK.
A proprioceptor is a sensory nerve ending that responds to stretch of elastic tissues. Proprioceptor input is stretch of tissues. Proprioceptors are mainly found in muscles, joints, ligaments and the body balance organ in the ear. Proprioceptor input is changes in tissue stretch.
Proprioceptor output in tissue or nerve paths is reflex. Proprioceptors exist in all animals, and are key to identifying animals from plants. The animal may be as small as an ameba, which demonstrates independent movement in reaction to forces of water current – this is input to proprioceptor. Dr Sherrington coined the word “proprioceptor” in comparison with interoceptors and exteroceptors. But I am not sure if he identified proprioceptor as a key of separating the animal and plant life. (Eg. eyes and ears exist in more highly evolved animals only.)
My main interest in proprioceptor is proprioceptive feedback to human forebrain, where judgment centered on proprioceptor output is made that can satisfy human wants/needs, or change motivation from eye-/ear- centered value to feel-based value of one’s body. With more than 7 billion people, the mother earth is reaching her limits. Proprioceptor, ie. the feel of one self, is a key to identify how we can best fit in the limits of the earth gravity and biosphere.
Q & A:
1. What is the key to link skill with settings and technology?
– The optimum use of the body begins with the use of the neck, with which we can feel optimal use of remaining muscles of the body. The use of the neck can be specified for both resting conditions and purpose-oriented activities. It is not only the key for determination of skill, settings and human interface with technology, but it also affects musculo-skeletal health which, in turn, may affect the health of other body parts.
2. When should we be concerned with use or misuse of the human body?
– We are concerned with it, when consistent accuracy of desired outcomes is required, when our judgements on skill, settings and technology affect the lives of many, and when we want to prevent or correct personal health problems caused by our bodies. 170425
Organization ethics can be most clearly manifested in organization settings by absence of need for individual ethics. The final goal of organization is to eliminate the need for both organizations and individual ethics. 811026
It is widely believed in East and South Asian cultures that we own only time, ie. time for being and doing. The only space we really own is the space that our body occupies at any moment. Endless wants for more possession of space beyond skin covers for temperature maintenance is anti-social. 131016
