This morning I read a Japanese philosopher, Masaya Chiba's tweet. He found a problem in Saizeriya's menu because the meals are treated by each number. He found the moment that every meal, that must be basically precious, becomes numbers that are mechanical and lack humanity. I think that Chiba's sensitivity is great. But also I am worried about a miscommunication between Chiba and the people who see that calling meals by numbers has a very good performance. Therefore Chiba's opinion might not be delivered over the gap. The scenery that Chiba's words become a kind of 'meme' and so his opinion might be laughed at by brutal minds. Yes, I find a violent moment in there.

Today I worked late. This morning I went to Aeon as usual and tried to read Kenichiro Mogi's "Qualia and Artificial Consciousness" but I couldn't well. I felt anxiety and loneliness. What a shame. I am actually connected by various social media such as LINE, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc. But if I faced the time I couldn't talk to anyone, I would have to owe my worries to myself, But there must be some people who try to work for my job and my life. So I shouldn't feel lonely.

I read "Qualia and Artificial Consciousness". TBH I have little knowledge about Mogi. I thought that he appears on various TV shows and on the internet news. But this book contains a lot of knowledge so I can't treat it as a light book. He discusses Artificial intelligence and Consciousness, and also tries to think about philosophical problems like 'who am I?' and 'what is the phenomenon which is called 'me'?'. I thought that he tries to ask the things I also have followed with Wittgenstein and Hitoshi Nagai, so I thought I should read his books more.

Loneliness... Yes, I should endure it because it is a common thing. When I want to talk to someone, I can't find the proper person... Yoshimichi Nakajima recommends that we should face our loneliness. Look at that with honesty. Following that word, I might have to read books and think more in every lonely moment... Of course, I must die one day. But I will wake up in the morning as usual. I will go to Aeon and read books. Work as well as possible and Think more. That's my way. And I have built this 'my way' with my life . 47 years of life...
