Prediction and divination are fundamentally different. In the first place, only that which has a moral basis can rightfully be called prediction.
Putting such power in the hands of a machine can only be a denial of humanity. YAMAMOTO, together with a group of other scientists including KATSUMI's own research assistants, not only secretly used the computer developed by KATSUMI to predict the future, but who has also been working on a genetic engineering project to develop mammals suitable for working in undersea colonies as a response to the prediction, using premature fetuses from abortions to create these genetically enhanced submarine transhumans with the aim to prepare humanity for a life under the see once the flooding has submerged Japan.

Beyond Ideology: Global Communism vs. One of the younger Japanese scientists is quoted saying: Perhaps […] it is natural that only Communists, who try to fit everything into a preconceived form, should have a future predictable by a machine.
