I tried to translate essay written by mathematician Mr. Sakurai,but it's too difficult for me.I'll write down Japanese extracts also.

As you can see in "nou"and" sado",plain and simple beauty has a strong importance in Japan.It is excluded as much as possible and the last remained beauty.And that is related to value independent number,a prime number.

茶道や能からわかるように、日本の美は省いて省いて、最後に残った簡素な美をとても重んじます。それは自立する数・素数を大切にすることとつながっていくのです。
