I’m pleased to present you with the July-August 2018 issue of the Journal of Global Issues & Solutions.

This issue begins with our Page One Feature Paper, “Science: Philosophy: Elements of Scientific Consciousness” by Technologist Tetsuo Kaneko of Matsudo-shi, Japan. “A reality that the brain can understand for an object is not the same as the object. However, the reality should be precisely qualitatively similar to the object in order to understand it suitably. Hence, the brain should always demand to reconsider how a reality carried by a specific object can be understood. For instance, we can question how a reality carried by either a cloud floating in the sky or a nebula generated by an astronomical phenomenon can be understood. Images caught for certain objects by eyes do not allow the brain to understand the whole complete realities of the objects. If a cloud is magnified with a telescope, we can understand the contour of the cloud precisely. The boundary between the cloud and the sky appears because of the phenomenon of scattering of light, which is made to occur by a lot of small grains of ice distributed... (Continued)

A reality that the brain can understand for an object is not the same as the object. However, the reality should be precisely qualitatively similar to the object in order to understand it suitably. Hence, the brain should always demand to reconsider how a reality carried by a specific object can be understood. For instance, we can question how a reality carried by either a cloud floating in the sky or a nebula generated by an astronomical phenomenon can be understood. Images caught for certain objects by eyes do not allow the brain to understand the whole complete realities of the objects. If a cloud is magnified with a telescope, we can understand the contour of the cloud precisely. The boundary between the cloud and the sky appears because of the phenomenon of scattering of light, which is made to occur by a lot of small grains of ice distributed in the cloud. This fact makes the boundary become vague if we continue to magnify the cloud. Then, we must give up an effort to understand the reality of the cloud on the basis of the precise contour of the cloud. This means that another reality of the cloud must be understood. A reality of an object that is understood via awareness cultivated by daily experiences has a feature similar to one that the reality symbolized by the contour of the cloud has.... (Continued)
