Their main goal was to control other beings instead of living in harmony with the system. This has always been and still is part of our nature.

The cherry blossom holds much symbolism within Japan.  According to the Buddhist tradition, the breathtaking but brief beauty of the blossoms symbolizes the temporary nature of life. Nothing lasts forever but if equilibrium is set, life will renew itself, more beautiful and filled with energy.

Japan added more than thousand megawatts of power from renewable energy sources in nine months, as the islands set limits to reliance on nuclear power.
