From the Origin of the Earth
The two large tectonic plates that took form in Iceland slowly evolved half way around the globe in two different directions, and then reunited in my country, Japan. As the two plates tightly embraced one another, one plate slid beneath the other. The globe has a dynamic origin, and we human beings live on its surface. The volcanic eruptions in Iceland and the great earthquakes in Japan should be seen as natural phenomena that are continuously caused by the earth. Ever gently evolving globe, please watch over the restoration activities of the people who reside in your respective lands.
