With a combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots.
We are promoting a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of the process in this section.

Normally, no one notices this blind spot.

Apparently, the human eye has a difficult structure and a blind spot.

It is always complemented by two eyes and processed by the brain, so it is never aware of itself.

How did it happen?
How did the human body get that way?

The most famous example of the design of nature as a snake is the retina, which is possessed by all vertebrates, from fish to mammals.

The photoreceptor cells of the vertebrate retina are turned backward.

In other words, the wire part is facing the light, and the light collector, the photoreceptor, is facing inward, with its back to the light.

Interestingly, the retinas of cephalopods such as octopuses and squids are not inverted.

There is another snarky design in the human eye that is worth talking about.

It is a structure called the optic nerve papilla, which is located right in the middle of the retina.

The optic nerve papillae are located on the surface of the retina and form a small circle with no photoreceptor cells.

This creates a "blind spot" in each eye. Normally, no one notices these blind spots.
Nope.

I have a blind spot, but I feel like I don't.

This message is a very important checkpoint in teamwork and new business.

Humans are not perfect, and even the best of us have holes in us.

However, inevitably, when a project is underway, the members become fixed, and someone's opinion becomes stronger, and it may seem as if it is always the right answer.

If people around us feel uncomfortable, we should try to shine a light on it, even if it's just a little bit.

Bento OBENTO

Around this time last year, when I was walking around Paris for training, I felt that I was coming into contact with a lot of information about Japanese culture.

As I walked from the hotel to Montmartre Hill, I saw posters of Hatsune Miku's European version everywhere, and when I returned, I was served a drink that looked like green tea for breakfast.

When I was chatting with the front desk clerk at the hotel, she gave me a lip service and said, "I know the ticket is expensive, but I would like to go to Japan someday. I know some people there.

So I read the blogs of Japanese people living in the area and found out that Japanese culture, especially bento obento, has been very popular since a few years ago.

There have been times when other children have eaten my child's lunch.

It is true that in other countries, people often put apples, bread, and cheese in a bag or more.

There seems to be a lot of background behind the popularity of bento, but what I personally found most interesting was how bento OBENTO is a very Japanese idea.

In this case, "Japanese" is synonymous with "the ability to squeeze all sorts of meanings into a small space.

In the tea ceremony room and in the garden, there are few things, but there are many overlapping meanings.

It is interesting to decipher it.

It is hard to find something like that in the world, and I feel that it is ingrained in the Japanese sensibility.

Something big and fancy would be nice too.

Something small and beautiful would also be nice.

I sometimes hear from other business owners about their longing to be part of a giant corporation.

However, in a future where the world's birthrate is declining and the population is aging, and resources are becoming an issue, I wonder if that is what Japan is aiming for with its competitive advantage.

We don't just need arguments, we need proof.

Because it's more convenient to look things up.

Sometimes I think of myself as a student and try to find out what I want to know.

These days, it's convenient and you can get a rough idea of what's going on, even if it's a little wrong, not only from books but also online.

Unlike books and magazines, the granularity of the information is not skimpy, which is also a good thing.

I happened to look up "animal species" a while ago, and according to wiki

Other eukaryotes include plants, fungi (mushrooms and molds), and protists.
Based on the findings of molecular genetics at the end of the 20th century, living organisms can be divided into three categories: eubacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes (three-domain theory), of which animals belong to eukaryotes, and other eukaryotes include plants, fungi (mushrooms and molds), and protists.

In addition, protozoa (e.g., zooxanthellae, fruit flies, amoebae, etc.), which are part of protists, are a different lineage from the animals (metazoans) referred to in this paper, and it has been found that they have multiple lineages.
Protozoa

I see. Next, we will look at information about "eubacteria". The same

The cell membrane is composed of fatty acid esters of sn-glycerol 3-phosphate.
It is defined as a prokaryote with a cell membrane composed of fatty acid esters of sn-glycerol 3-phosphate.

Together with the archaeal domain and the eukaryotic domain, they divide the whole biological world into three parts.

When compared to eukaryotes, the structure is very simple.

However, they exhibit far more diverse metabolic systems and nutrient requirements, and their habitats extend into all environments considered to be the biosphere.

The amount of life is enormous.

They are also closely related to humans as intestinal bacteria, fermenting bacteria, or pathogenic bacteria.
We have a lot of relationships with humans as intestinal bacteria, fermentative bacteria, or pathogenic bacteria.

Okay, so not just animals, but non-animal "viruses" as well.

It consists of a protein shell and a nucleic acid inside.
It is an extremely small infectious structure that uses the cells of other organisms to replicate itself, and is composed of a protein shell and the nucleic acid inside.

There is some debate as to whether they are living organisms or not, as they do not have cells, the smallest unit of life, or their biological membrane, the cell membrane, they do not have organelles, and they are not self-propagating.

Double-stranded DNA virus (dsDNA)
Single-stranded DNA virus (ssDNA)
Double-stranded RNA virus (dsRNA)
Single-stranded + stranded RNA virus ((+)ssRNA)
Single-stranded-stranded RNA virus ((-)ssRNA)
Single-stranded RNA reverse transcription virus (ssRNA-RT)
Double-stranded DNA reverse transcription virus (dsDNA-RT)
dsDNA-RT

There's no end to it if I continue, but it's good to know there's no end to it.

It makes me feel that what I do on a daily basis is just a small part of what I do.

Looking at it the other way around, a little bit of something is very precious, so I have no choice but to enjoy it.

What will cause externalities in the future

I started with a difficult word: externality.

Economic terms, according to Wiki.

Externality refers to the fact that the decisions (actions and economic activities) of one economic entity affect the decisions of other economic entities. In general, economics assumes that the decisions of one economic entity do not affect the decisions of other economic entities, but in reality, there are cases where the influence of other economic entities cannot be ignored. However, in reality, there are cases where the influence of other economic agents cannot be ignored, and the concept of externality was devised to deal with such cases.

It will be.

I know I'm making a difficult statement about something so obvious, but simply put, "When someone does something, someone else may be affected in an unexpected way. Let's take a look at all of them together.

For example, when too many trees are cut down in the mountains, the sediment flows out, gradually reducing the nutrient content of the water, which in turn reduces the plankton in the estuaries and prevents the catching of fish. If the lumberjacks' interests alone are taken into account, the fishermen will be unexpectedly affected.

In business, I think it is very important to look at the possibility of externalities that will happen someday rather than externalities that happen now.

I'm quoting from something that just suggested an externality that will be created in the future.

Woohoo!

Urbanization is a prime example of a future that we know for sure is coming.

In the 1950s, more than 70 percent of the world's population lived in rural areas.

The problems considered in economics were rural problems for most people.

Over the years since then, towns and cities have grown and shrunk as a result of the migration of people.

2007 was a notable year in which the world's urban population exceeded its rural population for the first time.

By 2050, the pattern of a century ago will be reversed, with 70 percent of the population living in urban areas.

The economy of agglomeration, once discussed by Alfred Marshall, will become even more powerful.

The most important trends for the next decade are aging, technology, and inequality.

These are three common global trends that are already causing great concern and are likely to intensify in the future.

In both cases, I feel that the importance of new education will increase.

I don't know what the future holds yet, but I hope to sincerely learn what is newly born.
