These comparisons helped to reveal how Japan achieved such intensive domestic development and far-reaching external restructuring to create its raw materials peripheries. We found a clear pattern of rapidly ascending economies that simultaneously developed their domestic industrial economies, restructured and progressively globalized raw materials and transport industries, and restructured increasingly distant regions into raw materials peripheries supplying increasingly diverse sets of raw materials at progressively lower costs.
The intersection of geological process and technological discovery provides the third sphere in our analysis, in which we see the role of contingency, chance, interpretation, and communication that constitute story, or history. This is the sphere where the inevitability of law and process are joined with human choice, intention, and agency in the formation of society. It is also the sphere where the laws and rules conﬁgure as process creating very diﬀerent geological, climatological, and biological events according to the accumulation of site-speciﬁc material formations that we humans know as topography, vegetation, mineral composition, hydrology, and such.
