earth presents the aspect which seems just to live. The earth has just never
the system which is composed of only by things. The environments on the earth
have been made through the system that life creates. But, as for the present
earth science, this recognition seems extremely lack. So,......
The researches of the experiment of the
closed ecosystem (mini-earth) and autopoiesis theory have been
done in our laboratory for several years. We will introduce the system which
life creates and its state of the innumerable changes to the public one after

So called mini-earth
is a closed ecosystem. Here, closed system is characterized by
materially closed but energitically open system.
Let's try to think
about the earth. Solar energy pours into the earth from the outside, and on the
other hand, heat is radiated by the shape of the infrared rays in the space by
the earth. But the earth is closed materially except for the example like the
rushes of the meteorites and the solar winds. So, the earth forms one of huge
and its changing of both life and the environment have been repeated for about
4,000,000,000 years in this huge closed space, that is, the earth which is a huge
closed ecosystem. Let's call it GAIA. The GAIA is a huge
closed ecosystem. The recognition that the earth is really closed ecosystem is
the first step to understand what the earth is, how it was formed and how it
We made some mini-earth
to know the movement of closed ecosystems deeply. We want to know what the
earth is by studying them!
