Conceptual Chart of Living Spaces
- Where have florae, faunae, and humanity lived in the past?
- Where do they live today?
- Where will they live in the future?

The purpose of this research is to conduct comparative environmental historical research in order to reveal the historical process by which human cultures have been separated from nature. Project research will employ mathematical-geographical modelling to identify the underlying mechanism for this separation, present a future vision of local environments, and conduct action research reflecting and reinforcing our findings.
