In the midst of a chaotic world situation, the role of nations, organizations, and traditions is being questioned anew. There are those who have lost their faith in the world and believe only in a god of their own creation. They worship and love their idols and feel closer to them than to their family and friends. Knowing that their faith is false, they cling to it and continue to love it, and eventually it will materialize into an idol and give them a soul. It may be said that this is one of the forms of human evolution.

混沌とした世界情勢の中、国家や組織、或いは伝統の持つ役割が改めて問われつつあります。世の中には信じられるものを失い、自ら創り出した神のみを信じる人々も居るでしょう。彼らは偶像を崇拝し、愛で、家族や友人よりも身近なものとして捉えています。その信仰が偽りであることを知りながらも縋り、尚も愛し続ける心は、やがて偶像を具現化し魂をも吹き込むでしょう。それも人類の進化の形態の一つと云えるかもしれません。
