XNUMX.Summary-Development of the last frontier of the economy, the Eurasian continent, and Heartland

We have entered an era in which professional differentiation has progressed extremely and it is difficult for experts to make global decisions.This is the time of religion, art, and science and technology.How to understand synthesisHe has introduced the intelligent design (optimal design theory) that can be used, and has described the problem-solving methodologies (for example, disparity and poverty) by "collective intelligence" using general-purpose artificial intelligence (big data).The keyword is the construction of an autonomous distributed control society.In the era of "fighting" between land countries and sea countries, let us finally consider the optimal design (collaboration) of the component technologies.The "worst scenario" for Japan is an alliance between Russia and China to direct the gun deck to the Japanese archipelago.Despite the Ukrainian problem, it is not good to block the escape route and eventually force Russia and China to form an alliance.We should start the development of Eurasia and the world islands, aiming for "collaboration" in the world.


12.1 Design of autonomous distributed control network by distributed energy application system

First of all, in order to cultivate "sensitivity and physical knowledge" so as not to misunderstand the starting point and its direction, it is necessary to acquire "science and technology as a real feeling".It will give you the potential to call the image of "awareness, discovery" and "creation".


(1) The end of the "collection" era-Failure and regeneration of energy policy of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry-

The theory of distributed energy utilization as an alternative technology to nuclear power in Japan is commented by Amory Lovins of the US Rocky Mountain Research Institute, but due to the failure of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry's "earn more than industry" policy, developed countries Located at the bottom of the middle.The amount of electricity introduced by distributed energy in Japan is 3/9 to XNUMX/XNUMX that of Germany.However, its resources are nine times that of Germany.The ratio of forest area to the national land is the third largest in the world, and thanks to that, delicious fish and shellfish are caught in the sea near Japan, but there is no biomass power generation, and Japan is a country of water. , Pumped-storage hydroelectric power generation and other production methods suitable for Japan that can also store energy have not been established.Also, geothermal energy is one of the world's leading resources, and even though these can be operated in a steady state, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry picks up only nuclear power plants with low operating rates.Furthermore, the design of the heat insulation structure and the optimum structure of the refrigerant, the design of the urban buildings such as the rooftop solar panel and the use of the heat pump, the prevention of heat land, and the design of the optimal compact city for daily life have not been touched.Amory Robins points out that these are because the monopoly system of energy production and sales of nine postwar electric power companies has denied competition and hindered its spread.


Makoto Iokibe says that in the "era of catastrophe", the recent "heaven and earth incident" is the same as the "national crisis" such as the "Mongol invasion" in Koan 4th year.If there is a national crisis caused by human activities, there is a possibility of overcoming it.Humans do not realize the "transition of history".Humans want to be "lions standing in the wind."For example, even if we take up the "economy", no one is aware that when profits are saturated, the flow of gold becomes a non-linear phenomenon and the conventional economic law does not hold.


The United States, which has adopted a policy of respecting "management", has further moved to a "earning from the financial economy rather than industry" method, and a stock profit-centered society where physicists are only paying money on Wall Street. It became.As a result, more than 500 million manufacturers have disappeared.In ordinary banks, there is no "person" in investment banks who can judge from the outside whether the strategy to be adopted is correct or not by all financial, economic officials, and investors carrying out common "money-making" actions. Synchronously died of the same illness. It was the economic collapse of 2008.


In short, all of the "collection" became the same environment, and the autonomous distributed control did not work, and it collapsed.Beyond the speculation of the parties, Shakespeare's Venetian merchant "Shylock" human beings, everything leads to a new era.


Profit is saturated and the modern growth system is dysfunctional.As soon as I gave up on the prototype reactor "Monju" that failed, why did the demonstration reactor one step higher come back to life?I don't know any hierarchy of technology.This is always the way the politics and bureaucrats do not understand science and technology. It's far from the "lost 20 years", and we can't escape from deflation.He is blinded by neoliberalism and refuses to recognize the problem as a problem. "There is only this way" is the development of the last frontier of the economy, Eurasia, and Heartland.


(2) Design and development of cultural science and technology-Recommendations to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology

The fact that Japan should aim for an autonomous decentralized control society based on a decentralized energy system based on a biological system will be a natural conclusion in the discussions so far.Specifically, we will summarize the optimal design and development themes that form the core of the global environmental system design theory.It is an urgent and eternal theme that should be launched into the earth world.


▶ In order to let elementary school students experience the fact that Japan is a country with many natural disasters, let elementary school students "experientially learn" about the disaster site.Budget to stop English education. There is no need for "children" to learn a language that does not have "mono no aware" or "mono no aware".

By doing this, you can see the state of a broken house and an unbroken house, and you can experience intelligent design and training. It will be an experiential learning to prevent "children's disengagement from science and technology and poverty".


▶ Application of Japan's proud shield tunnel excavation technology-Development of disaster prevention and safety design technology

Technology that enables safe tunnel excavation can be used as shelters, shelters, underground societies, waterways, and supply channels, and if used properly, it can also be a tool for social development, disaster prevention, and regeneration passages.


▶ Sublime and energy production of "Fujiyama" -Degassing power generation and disaster prevention in the Fire Mountains

My dream is to harness the beauty, spirituality and power of magma of "Fujiyama".Once it explodes, the damage is immeasurable.The main purpose of the design is to "prevent eruptions and reduce the frequency" of the eruption system of the Fire Mountains, and use the ejected gas for "electric heating combined gas turbine" and steam for "geothermal power generation" to create a region. We propose to build "Energy production and preservation of cultural heritage by enhancing safety" from a long-term perspective.


Japan's "shield tunneling technology" is the best in the world.By using monitoring and this "shield tunnel machine", you can work with high safety.


(3) Development of the Eurasian Economic Union through the Japan-Korea Tunnel-Construction of the Heartland International Energy Highway

China's land and sea energy corridors have started.The Japan-Korea tunnel, which will be the "core" of the road to "cooperation" between the land and sea countries, should be constructed. Economics, which is "determined by someone other than yourself," is not responsible for being a victim.Based on the truth, it should be decided by intelligent design (optimal design theory) that is judged by oneself."Anti-intellectualism", Hate speech, and Japan, which are widespread all over the world, must respond with the "sensitivity" of "the sublimeness of Fujiyama."In other words, it is nothing less than "mono no aware, the perception and acceptance of" impermanence, "which is the principle of all things, the love and creation of what is born from it, and the denial of regret."The sublimeness of Fujiyama is voicing such things.This is the spirit of the city of atomic bombs, the city of peace, the city of prayer, and Nagasaki.


In other words, we must set the direction for the construction of the "autonomous distributed control society" of the earth while mutually enhancing ourselves by "constructing the Japan-Korea tunnel in collaboration with the Japanese and Korean people".


(4) Transformation of Japan's energy industry structure-Heartland (World Island) Energy production, consumption and circulation

Jointly developed with Russia, China and Mongolia to produce, distribute and circulate Heartland energy.The means is energy management, which will be described later.Gas / Oil will build a pipeline to Hokkaido via Sakhalin and convert it to a distributed energy system that does not rely on nuclear power.


Which is smarter, building a boat of heavy oil from the Middle East, hiring people to carry it around half the globe, or delivering electricity in an instant with electric current?In Japan, power semiconductors (SiC) have been developed and put into practical use *, which greatly reduce the loss of high-voltage power transmission.


The southwestern part of the Japanese archipelago is located in Tsushima and Iki via a smart grid that accommodates electricity produced by the East Asian power grid (distributed energy, wind power, solar power, hydropower, tidal power, biomass, etc.) through the Japan-Korea tunnel. Is connected to Kyushu as a route.Technically, this is called an energy management system, but it corresponds to the brain that controls energy consumption, production, and distribution according to the environment and time, and an autonomous distributed control system.


12.2 Energy Management System (Great East Japan Earthquake and Nuclear Power Generation and Future Japan's Energy System, Katsuyuki Kawaguchi, "World Peace Studies", NO.190, 2011) -Optimal Design and Control of Production, Management, Allocation, and Transportation


Optimal design such as load leveling (power peak cut), energy saving, etc. will be implemented for the entire distributed energy and comprehensive energy management according to the local demand.It is a system that acquires data on seasonal and regional fluctuations in household power consumption and gas, formulates annual demand forecasts, and transmits and distributes electricity.Figure 12.1 shows an example of an energy management system equipped with power storage for sodium batteries and lithium-ion batteries.


We will respond to fluctuations in the output of wind power generation and solar power generation with various types of distributed energy, and implement optimal design.Place the storage battery and store the surplus power in the storage battery on the demand side and the grid side.The storage battery is charged with midnight electricity, and the electricity, wind power, and solar power generation are used in the daytime.


Applying such an autonomous distributed control mechanism, the northern side of Japan will use the natural gas or oil obtained through joint development in Siberia to circulate energy through a "pipeline" from southern Sakhalin to Hokkaido and its utilization. It is a line format.The most promising method for the southern corridor is to capture the wind in the Gobi desert in southern Mongolia, generate wind power, and distribute electricity to Kyushu via the Japan-Korea tunnel.



Figure 12.1 Energy management system, regional and environmental production, distribution and transportation design

Partially modified quote (Watanabe 2010)


According to Softbank's estimate, even excluding the windless Gobi Desert, it is possible to generate 700 to 1000 million kW, which is equivalent to 7 to 10 nuclear power plants.The cost of wind power generation in Mongolia is 2 to 3 yen / kwh, which is less than 10 yen / kwh including the grid transmission cost to Japan, which is cheaper than nuclear power generation and other power generation.Japan's electricity rate, which is the highest in the world, will be cheaper than that of the United States, CO2 problems will be solved, economic growth and employment will be maintained.


12.3 Response to the hydrogen era-Food residue, high-calorie gasification production and power generation from biomass

Since Heartland energy production is a distributed energy utilization system, it also includes the development of distributed energy equipment.It goes without saying that distributed energy production is more productive than centralized energy production, but since nuclear power and steam turbines use a large amount of water as the working fluid, they are not suitable for wasteland and gas. Turbines, diesel engines and gas engines are adaptable.It goes without saying that these prime movers are approaching the limit design in practice, and an optimal management system for renewable energy and distributed energy is essential.


At the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake, I used "wood with 70% of debris" to "debris processing" and "cogeneration (combined electric heating) gas turbine" by <Nagasaki method high calorie gasification power generation>. He proposed to the government a technology to adapt and efficiently supply electricity and heat for local production and consumption.This is because the high-calorie gas produced by this method is mainly rich in hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane, etc., and the fuel consumption is greatly reduced (for details, see "Expression of human inner sensibility". Research ”P417-422).


In the current hydrogen production, hydrogen is extracted from fossil fuels by an aqueous reaction, but this does not lead to a reduction in carbon dioxide gas.The method of electrolyzing water to produce hydrogen by solar and wind power generation is permanent.The Bush administration started to take fuel (ethanol) from food (corn) because it is alcoholic fermentation, so productivity (efficiency) is also poor, and it is possible to efficiently produce fuel from the residue after food. It is an intelligent design that suits the divine intention.High-calorie gas (H2, CO, CH4) used in high-efficiency power generation and combined heat gas turbines is the residue generated from agriculture, fisheries, forestry and their service industries.This cycle of energy production and consumption is shown in Figure 12.2.The figure also shows the Nagasaki method of high-calorie gas production, but methanol (the liquid fuel closest to hydrogen) can be produced simply by applying a little pressure to the high-calorie gas and passing it through a catalyst (for details). , "Study of expression of human inner sensibilities", pp. 417-422).Half of the dry weight of biomass can be converted to methanol fuel.It can be used as a mobile fuel, and the "start" of the hydrogen era will begin there.


"The strength of a chain is determined by its weakest ring, and life is, after all, a series of chains."

William James



The arrow indicates the Nagasaki method high calorie gasification production.The entire amount of biomass powder is gasified with high calories (H2, CO, CH4) by high-temperature steam.

≪Human folly leads to the end of the earth≫

From the Big Bang to the present day, Kodansha's selection by Masaki Sawano, who treats the history of the earth as a history, not as a natural science, as a humanities is exciting.


The 21st century is a time when human activities have brought about decisive changes in the historical state of the global environment. Long before the "time" comes, human folly will bring an end to the earth.


If you make a mistake in choosing the farewell road that is just around the corner, you will follow the path to ruin.So much what humans are doing now is dangerous to the fate of the earth.


What the world's most influential America should do now is to start a discussion with the world's intelligent designists about a solution to excessive globalism: protectionism that is cooperative rather than competitive. It's time to come.It is necessary to devise how to train workers to fill the vacant jobs due to the disappearance of the manufacturing industry.


According to Hiroshi Nakanishi, a professor at Kyoto University, the recent earth isWise peopleIt can be said that the computational reason of being able to manage the emotions and social order of other people is, like the old "big story", a "deathful conceit".The world in the future is likely to face challenges since World War II.


Nothing is more scary than you might think. "What was once impossible and unreal can now happen."Common sense in the world is changing. "To do the right thing, you have to know what is true," Huxley and Kosuke Motani insist.


The problem is that accurate fact recognition never spreads throughout the country, so correct response actions do not occur.This is the introduction to "The Earth Magazine of Extinction".


In terms of sensibility and technology, the image of Agatha Christie's "and nobody is gone" that I read when I was a boy comes to my mind, and each one disappears.
