I dealt with the ethics for openness, oneceness (or oneness), uniqueness in Daoism which is in the work of Toru Takemitsu (明日ハ晴レカナ、曇リカナ, lyrics and composition by Toru Takemitsu,, is opposed which is based on proportions and their perfection in (German) idealism toward the higher direction.

-> References (preparation)


-> Practical exploring and theoretical exploring, thereby the question in the context of Daoism which relates to Takemitsu's composition, which is in the context of musical modes of the Japanese Music in the Heian period. (Iroha) -> Page: silence by John Cage

This is a (meta-) ethic draft in the 21st century, which I explore:

"Today, it is not decided that women will like men, men will like women, and men will marry women. Even if a man and a woman get married, the man may be in love with the man and divorced, or the woman may be in love with the woman and divorced. It has not been decided that men will like women, nor will women like men. Maybe one will love "you", be with "you", and they break up, to become one again. Even if your son says he's going to get married, it's not certain that his partner is a woman. Even if your daughter gets married, it is not decided that her partner is a man. It is not decided that your parents are men and women. It could be a man and a man, or a woman and a woman. Nothing has been decided. Today, men and women can be friends. Men and men can be friends. And women and women can be friends.”.

It is not the draft of anti-authority education on the extension line of the 20th century, but rather which draft is based on the queer study.

Why the queer study is important, which refers to molecular biology?
Molecular biology is a study that relates to the contemporary law on humanity basically.

-> The logic level of openness in Daoism, how it is different the Western contemporary academic researchers defined on openness culturally. The Western contemporary academic researchers logics are rather "tolerant" in the context of Christian culture, it might be possible to "ignore" (tolerant towards ignoring). Tolerance in the context of the Christian culture was/is very cold. Freedom and punishment stand at the same level. e.g. Neo Nazi (neo-Nazism) in Germany (so, they are in the underground of the society.) This is what it means to fall out from society. For this reason, the German academic art, some of them are conventional, that is their truth in the context of the Christian culture, and they have no other choice if they are not successful in the mainstream of art world autonomically. They have received mercy from society. - Conflicting extreme two poles consist of society in the Christian culture. It seems often like a craft of elasticity.

Openness in Daoism requires studying, and its intelligence and autonomy.

-> "The Varieties of Goodness", Georg Henrik von Wright, Lonton: Routledge & Kegan Paul (New York: Humanities Press), 1963

I explore them at the practical and theoretical levels, that is my PhD in arts proposal in 2019.

The context, method, and research questions of my PhD in arts proposal in 2019, that I did not change. (for that, it was a too early stage of the new education program. Then I asked him, whether I will be able to submit my PhD. the proposal, which I worked under him (supervisor)? He said to me, "yes, you can it.". (In 2020, they started a new program (in a test phase of pre-doctoral course in performing arts and fine arts with the other academic discipline), because it is the post-doc level, but another supervisor wrote me back that I can challenge for exploring them. I did not know, but they would start the new higher education program (with the salary) from 2020. The end of 2019 was the deadline of their first open call. (They wanted to have many submissions.) But it was really higher (together with academic disciplines), I answered, I need one year more. Because it might be possible to connect with the law or the medicine, i.e. philosophy of language. But it must be at the academic level. In the study of art, it requires to create and explore the logic.) After then, I don't know, because of the corona pandemic, many had to stop the activities.

I am exploring step by step, and at this moment, after the corona pandemic 2020, I don't know, whether I will and I want to study in the doctoral program. I am attempting to deal with the issue of corona-pandemic through my artistic research exposition at the doctoral level.

-> Discrimination in social media might be not only by humans but rather by non-humans automatically (algorithmically). Technology is not progressive always, rather conventional and conservative, how we can see it in algorithmic. Technology is the reflection of human's idea(s), including nuclear weapons.

- Danger of the democratic culture such as using social media

The popularity of what we consider to be "justice" is also questionable. Justice can delegate fascism also.

-> Just Twenty years after the unification (after the end of the military occupation in 1989, in the 20 years later). AfD was founded in Germany and they will establish their foundation. The activities of neo-Nazis have become active. It can be said that Germany is probably the centre of the world of neo-Nazis.
