7. Regarding the compatibility between politics, economy, and science and technology

7.1 Training in emotional techniques: Science, technology, politics, and intelligent design

In ``The Trump Phenomenon and Democratic Politics, Shincho 45, May Issue,'' Keishi Saeki writes, ``Democracy is a politics in which humanity has fallen into arrogance, in which humans try to satisfy their own desires by going beyond their own boundaries.'' "We must treat the Trump phenomenon as ``this is what democracy is all about,'' he added. Democracy and capitalism are far from being compatible; in some cases, they are negatively synchronized.

Commenter Kazuo Mizuno said, ``Mr. Trump is the 21st century version of Prime Minister Olimbarez, who tried to halt the decline of Spain in the early 17th century.However, the wheels of the era have begun to turn, and he is crushing policies that go against the grain. crush into

This is the lesson of history. ” he says. My sense of crisis is that there are no ``people'' in Japan's political and bureaucratic communities who understand science and technology. Blinded by the success of becoming a technology-based nation, we are neglecting science The reason is that, with the exception of the privatization of Japan National Railways (led by Toshio Domitsu of the Keidanren), there have been no successful examples of large-scale projects led by the state.

The world (earth) has become so ``strange'' due to the link between science, technology, and the economy that there is no other way than to repair it through science and technology.


(1) Eyes that see truth and falsehood: experiential learning of sensitivity (inventiveness, creativity)

In today's increasingly complex society, political and bureaucratic communities are required to have the ability to fully utilize science and technology to address the above-mentioned issues that form the basis of the ``Global Environmental System Design Theory.''
Politicians do not understand science and technology, and have entrusted policy decisions to unprofessional bureaucrats, which is the reason for the great failures of state-led governments to date. Bureaucrats don't do things that are unprecedented. No, there is no creation or it cannot be done.


The guiding principles of science come into the world through inventions and discoveries, and technology is what transforms them into ``things'' and ``systems'' that contribute to society. This is intelligent design. Even if you know the guiding principle that ``this is how you can do it,'' it will not become a ``thing'' unless you integrate the technology (this is called peripheral technology) that makes it a reality.


In the first place, the mass media and the political and bureaucratic communities share the difference between "science" and "technology," and that "things" and "systems" are not determined by "high-tech technology," but by "the lowest technology." There is no recognition . Therefore, we often make mistakes regarding the adaptability of science and technology to society. This is what seriously disturbs the perception of ``authenticity''.

Russia's Khrushchev said, ``Politicians are willing to build bridges even where there are no rivers.'' This has something in common with Caesar's ``Man can only see what he wants to see,'' and this is where the ``devil of depravity'' can take advantage, as expressed in Montvel's ``Lessons before going to the Sabbath'' (Figure 2.1). be.


(2) Compatibility between politics/economy and science and technology

Economics and science and technology have long been compatible; for example, ``financial engineering'' has been used to develop theories for collecting money, and physicists have joined Wall Street to develop ``financial engineering,'' or ``financial engineering'' to develop theories for stock and differential transactions. High Frequency Trading: We develop information equipment and do only financial accounting. The premise itself is wrong, and it feels like Shylock from The Merchant of Venice, who uses information only to make money, which is enough to make you wonder if this is true economics. Strategies are being implemented to buy and sell stocks even one millionth of a second faster than competitors, creating an "information processing world" that humans cannot control. I would like to touch on this again if I have a chance.


Current economics does not represent the reality. Since ``collecting'' is a nonlinear phenomenon, conventional economic theory has not realized that it can occur even though it cannot be predicted. As you can see from stock price movements, once stock prices are predicted, investors buy and sell stocks based on those predictions. If many investors buy and sell stocks based on this prediction, that prediction itself will influence stock price fluctuations.

This kind of interdependent relationship is called a "nonlinear relationship or dependent relationship." In other words, the collection and price of gold are not independent but dependent, so a linear relationship does not hold. In principle, prediction is almost impossible when there is nonlinearity. In intelligent design, this kind of unpredictability is referred to as deterministic chaos. This is the reason why we are moving away from the conventional academic system centered on analysis and developing the idea of ​​``complex adaptive systems'' as they are (Regarding ``viewing things'', see (II) Katsuyuki Kawaguchi's ``World Harmony''). Research” 2015).


7.2 The value of "things" is determined not by "high technology" but by "minimum technology."

Everything starts out increasing linearly, but eventually profits become saturated and reach a plateau. The same is true of the intelligence curve. Just as there is a limit to the earth, there is a limit to everything. Let's talk about a jet engine that successfully pushed its limits. The critical point is a turbine rotating in a gas flow of 1,570℃, which exceeds the limit temperature (melting temperature) of superalloys, the tip gap between the turbine blade and casing is 0.5 to 0.7 mm, and the time from start to full load. It takes 2 to 3 minutes, and unless all of these design conditions are met, it will not be possible to rise to 10,000 meters in the air in this amount of time.

Moreover, a 1m long metal will undergo a thermal elongation of 1mm if there is a temperature difference of 100℃, so even a steam turbine at a low temperature will start up slowly over a day. You can see how a jet engine performs a load-unloading operation. The rapid start-up technology that safely maintains the blade tip gap at 0.5 to 0.7 mm until the maximum temperature of 1,570°C is reached can be called a miracle.


Turbine blades are "internally cooled" through a complex internal flow path by high-pressure air from an axial flow compressor, and after impinging cleaning (spray cooling), the air is passed through film cooling holes of approximately 0.5 mm on the leading and trailing edges. The air film that covers the entire blade protects it from gases at temperatures as high as 1,570 degrees Celsius. The surface temperature of the wing is between 900℃ and 950℃. If the superalloy material is not cooled to such a temperature, its melting point is below 1400°C, so it will not be possible to ensure a lifespan of 10,000 hours. What would happen if there was foreign matter in the intake air of an axial compressor and the 0.5mm small holes in the turbine blades were blocked? Since the gases at a temperature higher than their melting point collide, they will probably end up in heaven. It is truly a life-or-death work of art, and the artist's impression is shown in Figure 7.1.


In a high-temperature rotating body where the components are designed to the ultimate limit, it is important to ensure Even if the radius of curvature at the base of a turbine blade is slightly small, stress concentration can cause the blade to blow off. When you look at it this way, you can see that in mechanical design, which is a comprehensive technology, the value is determined by the elemental technology that does not pass the test.


Naturally, the use of high-tech technology will result in higher costs. Therefore, the structure should be made as simple as possible, and the component technologies should have a passing score of 65 or higher. In this way, the product can be replaced at the designed "lifetime", making it possible to circulate in accordance with the economic system. This is the essence of intelligent design (optimal design). The same goes for politics. If something in life fails, bring it up to standard and bring it into harmony with the whole.


If there is even one ``technique'' below the passing grade, failure will occur. Under severe driving conditions, the margin up to the critical point may suddenly drop below the passing point. The core meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was a typical ``artificial mistake'' in which this ``multiple defense design'' did not function.


To prevent unexpected accidents, when designing a new model, make 20 prototypes and repeat tests with different operating conditions, starting/stopping, fuel, etc., to prevent accidents. Exhaust it. Therefore, developing a jet engine is extremely expensive, and the usual way is for it to be developed through collaboration between various countries Safety design has become the most important implementation item. I think this research and development of jet engines is enough to convince us that ``God's creation'' and ``man's creation'' are the same thing. After all, it operates at a gas temperature that melts any metal.


7.3 Conclusion – Designer’s woes

In this way, ultra-high-tech technology has the potential to lead to disaster if one mistake is made. It is not something that is "in principle dangerous" like nuclear technology, but "limit design" itself is a risk that cannot be afforded, and a society where "redundancy design" (French design) becomes the norm. Is it possible?


Wall Street greed drives the economy, science and technology. Wealthy people need to pay more to help others. If you do so, you will realize that just by making such statements, you can become something like an ``advocate.'' This stirs up "collective knowledge" and creates "group synchronicity." Christ and Nichiren must have come into being in this way. By transcending his human limitations, he became an "image, a light" for ignorant humans.


Kakuei Tanaka's ``Theory of Remodeling the Japanese Archipelago'' has the same ``direction'' as ``Theory of Global Environmental System Design.'' Unfortunately, there was no intelligent design (optimal design theory) as a methodology that integrated religion, art, science and technology. In other words, there was no ``sensibility'' for ``science and technology'' that could be felt.
