to change to a society based on photosynthesis with the projects that are technically possible and also guaranteed economic rationality even at the present moment in the early 21st century. We develop and accumulate technologies that draw out the potential of small organisms such as microorganisms, cell lines, algae, flora, etc. In order to allow for the efficient production of organic matter through a sustainable way using the sun’s energy by photosynthesis and to produce various substances necessary for human society, it is necessary to use the ability of small living organisms such as microorganisms and animal cells. Building a project not solely based on the idea of “controlling the living thing”, which is the current trend, but on the idea that human beings have matured through spending long periods of time “continuously managing living things”. This will become the key to paving the way for the next era. We will embed the technologies into the society one by one as a business with continuous profitability. While we are alive, it would be impossible to make the whole structure of the society to be based on photosynthesis and biotechnology. However, if we embed the technology we created as a business in society, we are certain that someone will understand why we wanted to leave this technology to the next generation hundreds of years later, and will further improve it to fit in the economic situation of that time to use it for making a better earth and society.
