Preface

  • Hexagon is a strange polygon, which closely resembles a circle. Six is also a number which we could manage.
  • Six would be the maximum number which we could pursue consensus.
  • I would mention six important neighboring countries around Japan; US, Korea, China, Russina, and Vietnam.
  • In 2005, I could visit Vietnam five times for the research activity of OSS in Vietnam. Vietnam is focused on a country representing developping countries with their diligence, and belonging to the sama edge of Sinic civilization.
  • Such fundamentals will be an essential measurement to understand each country.
  • Please refer to another six major countries: UK/FR/DE/CA/AU/IN
  • Sosurce: CIA The World Fact Book
  • 六角形は不思議な多角形である。それは円を近似している。
  • 6はまた合意を得るためには最大の数かもしれない。
  • 日本の周辺には6つの重要な隣国がある。米・中・韓・露・越である。
  • 2005年にベトナムでのOSS調査のために5回訪問した。ベトナムは勤勉な途上国の代表として、また同じ中華文明の縁に属する国として注目したい。
  • この基礎指標は各国を理解する上での必須の数字となろう。
  • 他の6ヶ国データも参照されたい。英仏独加豪印である。
