It has frequently been asked by (international) lawyers and experts in other areas whether the world faces a new form and its occurrences of supreme power.
Reading / hearing the recent news about the earthquake in Japan, I couldn’t escape posing the premises that the world is ruled by Who can calculate; the seismic processes are predictable, but can people contribute to those processes by speeding those processes, making them more powerful or by changing their allocation? Knowing that the United States has geostrategic interest and bases between the Persian Gulf and North-East Asia, and viewing Japan as military alliance with the United States and the Great Britain, I would not wonder if the model above described was actually assisted by people. On the other hand – knowing that the Arabic number system and arithmetic were invented by the Arabians, I wouldn’t wonder if those cease serving the people attacking those people.
