Say that we found a group of islands identical to the archipelago of Japan, but nobody was living on them. Let’s call the archipelago “Mirrored Japan.” How would we develop these islands without the consideration of history, traditions, customs or vested interests?

Many years of earth science research on the Japanese archipelago is now publicly accessible through this website. With little more than a high school-level understanding of earth science, we can use this data to think about the development of Mirrored Japan.
We propose the book Super Chronology of the Whole History of Earth (
