2. An Quotation from John of Salisbury,The Metalogicon, 1159-60

  • Our own generation enjoys the legacy bequeathed to it by that which preceded it. We frequently know more, not because we have moved ahead by our own natural ability, but because we are supported by the menial strength of others, and possess riches that we have inherited from our forefathers. Bernard of Clairvaux used to compare us topunt dwarfs perched on the shoulders of giants.He pointed out that we see more and farther than our predecessors, not because we have keener vision or greater height, but because we are lifted up and borne aloft on their gigantic stature.

3. About Author ( :

  • Jin Lu received B.S. and M.S in Mechanical Eng. from CSU (P.R. China). Dr. Jin Lu received Ph.D. in Optics, mechanical and electronics engineering from University of Ghent (Belgium) in 1994. He was post doctorial research follows in BECETL & IMM UC San Diego in 1995 and CAMT U. Sydney Australia in 1996.

Dr. Lu has been working in Ottawa Optics Valley (Canada Capital Region) and Silicon Valley (CA, U.S.A.) as senior opto-mechanical packaging engineer since 1997. Dr. Lu has been one of the pioneers in the development of engineering sciences and manufacturing technologies for photonics/biophotonics packaging applications. He worked for JDSU and Nortel to develop flexible ultra precision assembly work cell & its based production chain for mass production of OC192 DWDM fiber optics components & subsystems. He co-founded a start-up EXUPOLI.net in 2009. 4. About EXUPOLI.net :

  • Dr. Jin Lu founded EXUPOLI.net in January 2009, after Nortel Networks went into chapter 11, to seek the solutions for the poor sustainability of Canadian Tech Businesses. The early work was focus ontunable laser technologies , both patents & known-hows.

However, the learning leads to the understanding that the root cause of the failure of the Telecom Giant was the lack ofMarketing Engineering Integration (MEI)in March 2009. The company has been focusing in MEI, which has been the bottleneck to prevent greatest successes of the internet revolution. EXUPOLI.net is developing interruptiveContact Center Technologies for bridging the markets of Canada & China. 5. Contents

  • Globalization: the diminution or elimination of state-enforced restrictions on exchanges across borders and the increasingly integrated and complex global system of production and exchange that has emerged as a result [1]
    • the word "globalization" was first employed in a publication entitled Towards New Education in 1930, to denote a holistic view of human experience in education (Oxford English Dictionary)
  • Global Manufacturing Renaissance: the complements of globalization by harmonizing the industrial relationships from uncontrolled marketing competitions to rational laws of the global business ecosystem (defined by Dr. Jin Lu, 6:50 AM, Saturday, October 29, 2011 in the office of EXUPOLI.net, Ottawa, Ontario Canada)

9. Renaissance of the 12 thCentury (R12)

  • R12 was a period ofmany changesat the outset of the High Middle Ages, including social, political and economic transformations, and anintellectual revitalizationof Western Europe withstrong philosophical and scientific roots .
  • These changespaved the wayto later achievements such as the literary and artistic movement of the ItalianRenaissance in the 15 thcentury (R15)and thescientific developments of the 17 thcentury (SD17) .

10. Characteristics of R12 (P. & S.)

  • P olitics &S cholasticism [A.1]
    • R12 built on the spread of monasticism and the associated increase in literacy by"wandering scholars"who traveled from country to country
    • Legendary King Arthur: the King of Round Table & Knights of the Round Table - implying that everyone who sits there has equal status
    • Translation from other cultures, especially ancient Greek works to Latin (from Islam), was an important aspect of both R12, focused almost entirely on translating and studying Greek and Arabic works of natural science, philosophy and mathematics

11. Characteristics of R12 (2.T. & C. )

  • Trade & Commerce
    • The Power of Merchants
      • The nobility in Europe held power during the 12th century, but the merchant class (guilds) pumped money into the economy through trade, which strongly influenced the politics of the time
    • Religious Commerce: The Church owned a great deal of land all over Europe, including farmland. It sells the agriculture products at the local market.
    • Sea Travel (Europe): Open sea and rivers allowed easier haulage of goods (muddy and pothole-ridden roads made overland transportation difficult). Italy dominated (its expertise in the field and its banking system).

12. Characteristics ofR12(3.1. Sci. 2.1K Ys) 13. Characteristics of R12 (3.2.Sciences )

  • Students were eager for knowledge and sought it out with enthusiasm & the most advanced scholars knew that the Muslims of Islamic civilization had great storehouses of knowledge
  • They increased contact with the Islamic world in Spain, Sicily & Constantinople, which allowed Europeans to seek and translate the works of Hellenic and Islamic philosophers and scientists, especiallythe works of Aristotle (c. 4 thBCE)
  • Medieval university laid far greater emphasis on science than does its modern counterpart and descendent

14. Characteristics of R12 (3.3. Tech) Paper manufacture began in Spain around 1100, and from there it spread to France and Italy during the 12 thcentury. In Zhu Yus book Ping Zhou Table Talks:magnetic-needle compass for navigation at sea &Muslim merchants in China (1117 AD) 15. Significant Achievements in R12

  • The western Europe of R12 can be characterized as a flowering of civilization (humanism) with spreading of religious faith, increasing of the literacy & implementing laws & orders
  • Increasing of the trade & commerce stimulated the population growth and the public desires of the politics & economics involvements from guilds & churches
  • The achievements in A&S&T filled the gaps between that of Ancient Greeks & High Middle Age, which contributes to the future developments of A&S&T in R15 & SD17
  • The above achievements encouraged the politics reforms, enforced by highest politics & religious Leaders

16. Renaissance of the 21 thCentury (R21)

  • Problem: Globalization moves manufacture jobs from developed economy into developing one, which leads the imbalance of the global trade that trigged the global recession in 2009
  • Dr. George M. C. Fisher pointed out two key aspects in R21
    • Assessing technology from a humanist perspective will be the greatest challenge we face
    • If competitors can cooperate creatively, so can business and government
  • R21 is a time of rethinking and optimism. Successful sciences & engineering have redefined the publics expectations of what we can accomplish, especially how can we advance information technology to complement the self-correcting mechanisms of the Capitalist system

17. Characteristics of R21 (Crises & Jobs)

  • Our Ultimate Objective Is to Provide More and Better Jobs for Our Citizens ,(- THE CANNES ACTION PLAN FOR GROWTH AND JOBS).

18. Characteristics of R21 (Globalization)

  • Globalization is the process by which markets integrate worldwide, which is driving up peoples expectations, creating new sources of competitions for businesses and opening new opportunities for the growth of the world wealth.

19. Characteristics of R21 (ICT)

  • The Age of Information and Comm
