Founder of an experiment facility

Preparing the interview I would have tomorrow with the engineers of an experiment facility, I found the blog by the founder of the facility. The blog was so interesting that I couldn't stop reading it. The founder of the facility had something in common with the architect whom I had lecture on the architectural background of the novel "The fountainhead," in the sense that they protested against bad customs of the industry they belonged to.

Thinking ability

As far as I know it is unusual that the thinking ability of those who say "How can we cultivate the thinking ability of young people?" seems to be cultivated. People who emphasize the importance of the thinking ability often despise scientific way of verification.

Went to Fukushima

Commissioned to produce a publicity article of an inspection device manufacturer, today I visited a world‐famous inkjet printer manufacturer in Fukushima, to have an interview with its technical experts. In the rental car on the way to and from the factory of the inkjet printer manufacturer which a marketing staff of the client drove, I talk with the marketing staff about the principle and plan of the writing over an hour. We made various differences of our views about the article clear and solved many of them.

Feeling the weight of my internal organs

Since a few days ago I enjoy practicing martial arts feeling the weight of my internal organs, in other words, feeling the relation between my internal organs and the earth.

Refusal of perception of weight

A few weeks ago I noticed that the back halves of my feet and legs had refused to be aware of the weight of my hold body and my feet and legs themselves, and the refusal of perception of weight had had bad influences on various functions of my body and mind.

Technical experts' hard times

When I visited a precision components manufacturer yesterday, I was given a pamphlet which advertises the technology the manufacturer was proud of. Reading the pamphlet today, I thought I didn't fully understand what kind of hard times technical experts had. Probably that was one of the reason my interview with the technical experts of the manufacturer went smoothly.

Went to Ohtsu

Commissioned to produce a publicity article of an inspection device manufacturer, today I visited a precision components manufacturer in Ohtsu, Shiga Prefecture, to have an interview with its technical experts. The thoroughness of my interview did not seem to satisfy the client.

Willingly

People who complain about behavior of other people often seem to me just to have failed to learn to make other people willingly behave.

Too pushy

Advertisement writers have to write advertisement articles that arouse interest of the target readers. Some advertisement writers advocate techniques to induce the readers to read the articles, sometimes referring to techniques used in cartoons and films. I think it is important to bear in mind a difference between advertisement and entertainment. Basically the latter is appreciated with an attitude of active appreciation, while the former is not. Advertisement articles which are written with techniques of cartoons or films possibly give the target readers an impression of being too pushy.

Blamers

One of the types of people I dislike and despise most is the one who believe the way the real society works and the way the real people live are unpardonably immoral and there are people who should be blamed for the ways the real society works and the real people live. They always wait a chance to grieve over the vicious society and the vicious life and to blame anyone to be blamed other than themselves. I make every effort to minimize contact with that kind of people. They erode my mind. When I held a meeting which unfortunately attracted that type of people, I made up my mind to hold no more similar meeting.

Liar

I was a child who quite often told lies. I told lies for various purposes, sometimes to make myself look great, sometimes to amuse other people, sometimes to conceal my sin or shame. Probably it was when I was about twelve years old that for the first time I wanted to stop telling lies. It took more than twenty years for me to learn to forbear from telling shameful lies since I decided to stop telling lies.

Ratio

There seems to be no more than one out of ten people who adheres strictly to tell no lie. Bearing this ratio in mind, I rarely get angry at lies by other people.

Alignments and states of the bones, muscle, and internal organs

I can be happy by improving the alignments and states of my bones, muscle, and internal organs more easily than by trying to make my mood better, and much more easily than by trying to change other people or the world. Since I learned to improve the state of my own body, I rarely stick to the way other people do or the way the world be.

Toothpaste

Since as a little child I hated the flavor of toothpaste for children, it had been my habit to use no toothpaste when brushing my teeth. Last month I found my teeth was very blackish, probably because of my new habit of drinking coarse tea. Immediately I bought toothpaste which was claimed to be effective in whitening teeth. Fortunately the claim was confirmed.

Persuasiveness

The ability to persuade other people often seems to prevent the owner of the ability from getting aware of errors of his own thoughts.

Source of memory

Sometime I have no idea whether a scene which has just come to my mind is my own experience I actually had, or my dream I had while sleeping, or a scene I saw in a drama or read in a book.

Extension of latitude of imagination and comprehension

I want to believe I can extend the latitude of my imagination and comprehension by trying always to meet the demands by clients who think highly of writing styles which disgust me.

Self‐hatred

The situation in which almost all the tasks I am offered and accept are of such kind that I am not sure I can complete meeting expectations of the client leads to self‐confidence if I succeed but leads to self‐hatred if I fail. Recently I fail more often than succeed.

Brief explanation

I am not good at explaining things briefly -- especially things which interest me a lot. Almost every time I try to talk about what occupies my interest, I find the listener bored or am said "Could you explain it more briefly?" before I have talked for half a minute. So I make it a rule not to try to talk about things which I cannot explain within half a minute.

Dream of zebras

Although it is reasonable for a zebra to wish to live comfortably without fear of being prayed on by lions, it is ridiculous for a human to try to persuade lions to give up praying on zebras, or to try to exterminate lions in order to abolish predation. Few social reformers can be saved from this kind of ridiculousness.

Governance based on goodwill

This week I watched a movie titled "Metropolis" (1927) by Fritz Lang on DVD. I thought the movie had been made by those who had no idea how dreadful the governance based on goodwill could be.

Nagging clients

To be favored by nagging clients is honorable and improving but troublesome.

A leap

A mathematics teacher whom I was taught by when I was a student said considering "one" of "one apple" as the same thing as "one" of "one orange" was a great leap. In this sense comparing the risks of different things may be too great a leap for people to accept.

Always have trouble

Writing publicity articles, I always have trouble making the articles easy to understand and at the same time not giving impression of low intelligence.

When I get more taciturn than usual

How I grew up is one of the most difficult things for me to explain and things which cannot be explained without explaining it are also. At the situation when I am required to explain such things I get more taciturn than usual.

The rule of law

Sometimes I think the situation in which I can take no part in the decision‐making of the laws but the rule of law is kept may be better than the situation in which I can take part in the decision‐making of the laws but the rule of law is not kept. In this sense I cannot eagerly oppose the rule of law to be forced by a foreign government.

Recorded voice

When I began to work as an interview writer 4 years ago, I was shocked to hear my voice and way of speaking recorded while interview. My voice was ugly and my way of speaking was obsequious. Recently my voice recorded seldom disappoints me. I may have got insensitive. I may have been accustomed to my voice. But I want to believe my way of speaking has improved by hearing my recorded interviews over and over again. Hearing people making a speech poor in substance and productivity in a public place, I cannot help hoping they once record and hear their own speech.

Such a kind of novel

Hearing people talking about The novel The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand I think that reviewers of this novel reveal the attitude with which they live their own life.

Takoyaki

To write a publicity article of a measuring device, this morning I visited a user company which manufactures plastic parts in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture. Osaka is famous for takoyaki, or a snack consisting of octopus (tako), chopped scallions, and pickled ginger cooked in wheat-flour batter. The managing director of the plastic parts manufacture explained the technology of injection molding comparing to the special griddle for takoyaki, which had hemispheric cavities. On my way home, I stop over at Nanba, which was especially famous for takoyaki. I stepped in a takoyaki stall. Unfortunately, I was not very fond of the stall's takoyaki. The batter of the takoyaki was too lax.

Soil ground

Recently I often use long‐distance buses for business trip. Long‐distance buses have a rest stop every one or two hours at a service area. While a rest stop, I walk on soil as much as possible. Soil ground revitalizes my body much more than paved one.

Normal life

When people say that they want to live "normal life", probably the "normal" does not necessarily mean "average" or "mode" or "median" from a statistical point of view. I guess the "normal" has something to do with the dignity of human being. The idea occurred to me when I thought about the essence of the charm of songs by a Japanese musician, Nakajima Miyuki.
