Next intermediate tests should be conducted. This serves as an important link between the past and the future. In this stage, feasibility study can be done and programs can be optimized and the economic and technical parameters can be measured to do the economic and technical evaluation, providing necessary technical preparation and program design basis for the full-scale spreading of the technology. In fact, I had worked out the basic concept and preliminary operation program for the intermediate test, but due to the lack of funds, the test had to be stopped midway.
In order to seek for help from all circles of the society and get financial support, I had sent 200 letters from June14 to August 25, 2002 with 3 articles enclosed: “A Kind of Manufacturing Technology of Artificial Soil”, “If I Were Given an Opportunity by the Society” and “My Overall Planning” (See attached appendix1, 2 and 3). Meanwhile, according to the situations of the recipients, I had sent some autograph letters and other materials to express my sincere expectations and firm determination and resolutions. Up to now, 9 letters have been sent back because the addresses were not clear and I have received only 12 replies and no answers for the rest 179 letters. The letters were sent mostly to government officials at various levels, followed by higher learning institutions and academic bodies. The 12 answers were sent as routine business and the same message was conveyed either indirectly or directly: they did not support me.
