…lives, our governments, our corporations, our jobs, and our infrastructure are being transformed by fundamental shifts in demographics, technology, and globalisation. Consequently, these key trends are shaping the period in which we live, and Japan is the first country in the world delicately poised on the precipice of these changes, reluctantly forced to navigate this complex but critical new era.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” — Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
