Purpose of World Congress On Thinking in a Turbulent Age                    
 In an unpredictable future, we,@the human race are facing problems we have never encountered before, and we will experience continued violent, irreversible change in the 21st century if we cannot change our Thinking Paradigm. We are only now realizing that conventional Reductionism Thinking, which focuses on past and present records to analyze the  future, is useless, as no prediction of future is assured by case studies and detailed analysis of the past. In addition, the development of the Internet offers us as human beings a new dilemma, burying us in tons of meaningless information and knowledge. Effective solutions are buried in a constantly changing current of data. This phenomenon of gover-informationh causes disorder in our daily lives, and destroys shared human values.
 We are facing the Cognitive Age to learn how to use knowledge and information beyond the knowledge and information based society. However, in the aspect of gFuture Thinkingh, the status quo still depends on ideas, concepts based on the past and the present with regards to information and knowledge. The human race has not been released by gReductionism Thinkingh, which is the basic thinking paradigm of a 0-1 based Digital Thinking paradigm popular in the Information Age. Further more, human beings segment and reduce all events unconsciously. This segmentation and reductionism is at root with much of the worldfs unsolvable problems. The ruin of humanity is caused by such digitizing, producing much conflict and crime, today.
 This second World Congress is based on a new thinking paradigm called, gBreakthrough Thinking g. Using this new thinking paradigm, gBreakthrough Thinking g, we can learn to create future-base solutions, using" Integration Thinkingh, a thinking that regards totality and relation as critical components in solution creation. This second World Congress is targeted at the future of human development through people from many different fields, with a focus on the 21st century thinking paradigm, gBreakthrough Thinking g to cope with a gChanging and turbulent Age g.

Concept of Second World Congress : Makizushi Approach
1. Participants: Economist, management, engineer, scholar, business man , farmer, politician, student, house wife, owner of restaurant, teacher, philosopher, etc people, group from all fields will gather.
2.  Makizushi  Approach: (sushi various tasty ingredients rolled in seaweed paper with harmony) Each group participating has their own planning and execution of our meeting independently, however , the basic concept  of this meeting focuses to co-opening of the meeting, an integration of ideas and a co-creation of something essential. To achieve this goal, a final and total integrated meeting, crossing over all fields, is held after individual and independent integrated meetings are held after each field meeting.  Deployment of the rolling idea "Makizushi " and integration will develop a new creative solution process. For example, integration of each idea or solution based on this new approach a collaboration between agriculture and industry such as restaurant, medical and health control, governmental administration and business management, will be our final output goal. This concept will create new group of production systems regardless of country boundaries, new business with encounter of business man and scholar, new economy system with virtue, study field of  economy and info-psychology will be expected to be co-created in the long run.

He has delivered over 800 invited lectures at many universities, companies and National and international conference, and has been an invited Visiting Professor at the 5 Universities worldwide.


 Prof. Shozo Hibino has created a new thinking paradigm with Dr. Gerald Nadler and promoted this new thinking paradigm in the world in 21st century turbulent age. gBreakthrough Thinkingh is not only a methodology but a paradigm shift for a new thinking approach to problems and solution creation. It involves philosophy, approaches, tools, and offers a total Solution Creation  framework. It aims to change the current paradigm of the Scientific Thinking Approach adopted from the Descartes Period, over 350 years ago. Breakthrough Thinking is now expanding throughout the world
 Prof. Muneo J. Yoshikawa and Prof. Shozo Hibino have  conducted  joint research in developing an  gintegration philosophyh for the turbulent age of  the 21st Century. The theory of gMöbiush, proposed by  Dr.Yoshikawa is the  underling theory for this philosophy.g Breakthrough Thinkingh is also viewed as an integration thinking. Those two views on integration advocated by Dr.Yoshikawa and Dr. Hibino as well as by Dr. Nadler will be presented and explored further at the Congress, with the aim to establish a new type of integration philosophy.
