Race queen

The other day I happened to see a report from Tokyo on BBC World News about "race queens" in Japan (BBC site). They are considered to be untouchable goddesses among Japanese Otaku men, I believe. They were really cute, but many women, especially feminists, would hate to see this kind of scene reported by BBC.

* Those who typed into Google the words "race queen" should see the comment below! (added by Morioka November 2004)*

* You might be interested in my book, The Insensitive Man: A philosophical Essay on Male Sexuality (2005), especially Chapter 1 "If Only They Wear Mini-skirts We don't Need Flesh-and-Blood Women Any More!?" that deals with men's fantasy toward (race queens') mini-skirts. (added by Morioka, February, April, 2005)*

These days I am sitting at my desk from morning to night, and concentrating on translation. Please visit the translation of Section 1, Chapter 1 of Painless Civilization.

Civilization without pain and suffering

Translation of my newest book, Painless Civilization, has begun. Translation is made by myself, but I need English editing by an editor who is interested in this book. This is a very thick book, so It might take several years to finish it...... Anyway, please visit:

Dream navigator and computer-mediated-communications

Today, the page of Consciousness Communication was uploaded. This book was published in 1993, and became a "cult" book among readers who were interested in computer-mediated-communications. The concepts of "communication interaction field" and "dream navigator" are probably unfamiliar to most of you. I hope you will find the summary and the table of contents interesting.

During consecutive holidays from April 29 to May 5 (Golden week), I drink good wine and read books at cafes around here, and rest my brain.
