#31 Towards an EM-Use Society


A new year is upon us, 2010. I am wondering how the previous year, and the world-wide recession, affected all of you.  Having gone through it I think you might feel that “It wasn’t so bad after all,” and that “the H1N1 flu wasn’t that major an issue.” People who have an awareness of self-responsibility are able accept everything that happens and respond accordingly, without being overwhelmed.

Still, advanced nations have lost the power to expand domestic demand, and only developing countries will be able to succeed using conventional patterns. There is only one possible way to break out of the present situation: a sustainable technological revolution to create low cost, high quality goods, and the use of EMTM to develop nations with a high level of happiness.

The word that best expresses the situation in Japan last year was “new”. Social conditions called for a new approach that was different from the methods used heretofore. This was represented best by the new administration that took over Japan’s government, and on the negative side by the new strain of influenza. The majority of Diet members elected from the Democratic Party of Japan are quite knowledgeable about EMTM, and we are beginning to see a fundamental change in the government’s stance towards EMTM.

In the midst of the unforeseen drop in tax revenue, the new government has taken a number of steps, including “sorting” businesses (to eliminate budgetary waste and to improve transparency) and calling a halt to large-scale construction projects; however, the existing administrative structure is so bad, and the wounds it has inflicted so deep, that unless the system is fundamentally transformed, the new administration will get bogged down. The issues of allowances for children and making high school tuition free are precursors of this.

At the same time, there is a need to raise the Japanese people’s ability to take self-responsibility and their awareness of how they can contribute to society. As I have said a number of times, using EMTM as freely as the air and the water in all areas of life is the solution. If a system is developed by the nation whereby its citizens can use EMTM as freely as air and water, then most definitely a fundamental solution can be found to all the issues we face.

First of all, just by efficiently treating all domestic organic waste with EM-1® and changing all agriculture in Japan to Nature Farming or organic farming, an effective solution can be found to environmental and health issues and employment problems, and we can experience an improvement in the degree of self-sufficiency and the problem of global warming. There are many examples throughout Japan where chemical fertilizers and agrochemicals are not used at all, and EMTM has been skillfully applied, and farmers have had excellent harvests of high quality, produced very economically. If one works in concert with the Organic Agriculture Promotion Law, the Food Waste Recycling Law, and other policies, what’s happening in Mikasa City and Shin Shinotsu village in Hokkaido will spread to the entire nation.

Further, if EM-1® is applied to waste treatment plants and rice paddies, methane gas emitted from paddies and lakes and marshes can be completely suppressed; if used in animal husbandry and fishery farming, not only methane gas produced by cows’ burps, but all the methane produced by animal and fish production can be decisively dealt with.

It goes without saying that methane has a greenhouse effect 20-30 times that of carbon dioxide. Countermeasures are said to be impossible, and methane is not one of the greenhouse gases that are regulated. Use of EMTM, however, makes it possible to quantify this, and it can then be possible for it to be a target for carbon dioxide credits. The nitrogen oxide originating in chemical fertilizer that is emitted from agricultural land has a greenhouse effect 200-300 times that of carbon dioxide; if EM TechnologyTM is used, the production of nitrogen oxide can be completely suppressed, but like methane gas it is not regulated. From the standpoint of global warming, a strategy can be outlined that is the same as that for methane.

Of course, if primary industries as a whole adopt EM TechnologyTM, we will be able to solve not only pollution problems raised by accumulated chemical materials and pollution caused by agrochemicals, but rivers and seas will become clean and abundant, it will an easy matter to revive various ecosystems, and inshore fishing can be promoted.

Products of primary industry made through the application of EMTM all have a high functionality, so the notion of “ishoku dogen” (a right diet that can be a means to promote good health) has become an accepted idea. Beginning with adult-onset diseases, even if education to prevent disease is emphasized, unless one includes the foods that support good health, this will turn out to be just a castle in the air.

Naturally, if EM TechnologyTM is applied to processed food, chemical preservatives will be completely unnecessary, and the processed food itself will become a high functionality food. Soft drinks are no exception.

In this way, if all fields related to food and drink are EM-ized, the majority of health-related problems can be solved, and it will be possible to solve the most difficult problem facing our country, namely the area of healthcare. Further, if EMTM is thoroughly applied to various manufacturing fields, environmental problems, including carbon dioxide, can be resolved. We need to change to a system whereby our lifestyles, our industrial stance, and our environment are inevitably cleansed. The technological system we’ve lived with up until now—living, increasing production, and developing economic activities—has polluted the environment. Just by using EM-1® in all areas of daily life where we use water—in cleaning, doing the laundry, the toilet, the bath, etc.—and spraying EM-1® in production sites, the environment can be cleaned. Using EM-1® in humidifiers, and using it on a daily basis, the air will become cleaner, and this will help prevent all sorts of illnesses. In short, through use of EM-1® what was once a source of pollution can become a source of cleansing.

If EM TechnologyTM is used in concrete construction, buildings can last over 300 years; maintaining them with EMTM afterwards they can be preserved for over 1,000 years. Old buildings can have a life of 2-3 longer than normal, and asphalt roads only need to be laid down once every thirty years, instead of every 4-5 years. If the amount of asphalt laid on roads in Japan can be reduced to less than one-fifth, it is possible to see a 25% reduction in carbon dioxide. We need to remember that massive amounts of carbon dioxide go into construction material.

If EM TechnologyTM is used in all sorts of materials, including electrical goods, it is possible to have a 30% energy reduction, the harmful effects of static electricity and electromagnetic rays can be eliminated, and the presence of those electrical goods and materials will promote good health, including a minus-ion effect. The functionality of batteries can also be dramatically improved.
 
Through the application of EM TechnologyTM in the medical field we have seen marked improvements in various diseases—such as ALS, Parkinson’s, dementia, retinitis pigmentosa, multiple sclerosis, AIDS, influenza, adult leukemia, and terminal cancer. There are hardly any pharmacological effects, but we have seen catalytic energy effects that return all body functions to normal.
 
All the things I have discussed above have been made public in EM Festa and EM Forum meetings, and nothing is new information to those involved with EMTM throughout Japan. EMTM has not spread more widely because of lack of government backing and because it has not grown beyond the volunteer level. And since EMTM is something that lies outside what’s considered normal in the social and technological systems we’ve been in up till now, the opportunities for its use have been limited.
 
All problems facing us now, including those of the Earth’s environment, have finally been recognized as systemic problems, and we are at the point where we need to investigate how these systems operate. The International Institute for EM Technology at Meio University that I belong to, in cooperation with the EM Research Organization, has begun a model enterprise whereby entire local areas will become EMTM special districts. Mikasa City is the very first, and this year we are hoping to expand this even further, to make model regions at the prefectural level.
 
It is precisely when there are many difficulties before us that EMTM can take the stage, for it has the power to transform the world. I’m looking forward to all the various activities of those people involved with EMTM.
