Wosite was Deliberately Erased. 1.
This is the first of a series of four posts on the intentional eradication of Wosite. Our posts are selected excerpts of a series of three blogs posted on the Julian Way site in 2013. We believe that the message is so important that must be revealed to Western readers post haste.
The color photos from the original blog posts remind us which post we are dealing with. At the end of each of our posts, a summary of what we have presented will be given. Our fourth post of the series will be a summary of Julian Way’s major points regarding the erasure of Wosite.
Why Woshite moji was erased. Part 1. Mononobe Clan
Woshite moji did not disappear, it was intentionally erased. It is ‘political consideration’ no matter how you look at it. It’s not only that the writing system of one’s country deliberately was erased, its history itself was rewritten. What happened？
It was for the convenience of the powerful people of the time that shinwa myths were created. It is now forgotten that the Tenno’s divinity was made up, even the ‘descent from heaven’ of the kami’s bloodline …
The カミ kami representing our ancestors were erased, the Chinese ‘神’ kami were created. The people who were living then were forced into the ‘神’ of kanji.
Subsequently, the uniqueness of Japanese thought, even its ground, were abruptly and finally cut apart….
The small nation called Nihon, to raise its authority, may have deemed it necessary to write the「日本書紀」Nihon Shoki and the「古事記」Kojiki documents which contain the re-written ‘histories’.
The point is, we must read the history written in Wosite, the prohibited books, and gradually realize the truth, and do it thoroughly.
From the era of Shoutoku Taishi [574 – 622 CE], the compilation of history was borrowed and the contents of Wosite began to be changed.
Mononobe and Soga Clans. There was confrontation between two powerful families, the 物部氏 Mononobe clan and the 蘇我氏 Soga clan, for power in the court. The Mononobe clan was, from their bloodline, a prestigious family. They were descendants of the Amakami. However, around 800 BCE, there were two people with the position of 10th Amakami, and there were two courts.
[The Mononobe wanted to maintain the status of Shinto. The Mononobe were an old family descended from Nigihayahi and Emperor Suinin, 29 BCE to 70 CE. The Soga had close ties with the Continent and they supported the importation of Buddhism in the 6th century.]
Miyako. Map of the World of Wosite with a close-up of Nakakuni. North is toward the bottom.
The Miyako [capitol] was placed in the center of the kuni [see map, Nakakuni, ナカクニ]. The house of Takamimusubi (grandfather of Oshihomimi) was living in Hitakami-no-miya in Tohoku. The 10th Amakami was ruling over Nakakuni. It was `Asuka no Honoakari’ Teruhiko [son of Amateru whose miya was in Isawa [イサワ], the other son being Ninikine]. He transfered the miya to the land of Asuka [アスカ].
Ama no iwafune. In celebration of the crown prince proceeding to a new position in Nakakuni, a sailing ship called ‘ama no iwafune’ was used. This ship is called “Iwa Fune (Kusu Fune)”. It refers to a type of boat that has been decorated and purified in a special way. Since grandfather Amaterukami recommended boat trips, it was named Amano Iwa fune (Amakami no iwawareta fune).
[‘Ama no’ means ‘Amakami no’. ‘Iwa’ means iwareta, said. ‘Iwa’ also means to purify. ‘Iwau’ means to celebrate. These are double yet compatible meanings. Therefore, Amano iwafune means a purified boat for celebrating, as Amakami recommended. Wosite has give us a different explanation of Amano iwafune than the usual. Nigihayahi is associated with Amano iwafune. Usually, ‘Amano iwafune’ is thought to mean a stone ship of the sky. ‘Ama’ is thought of as sky, and ‘iwa’ as stone. This Wosite anecdote goes a long way toward dispelling the conundrum of flying stone ships.]
Summary of this post
Wosite was the written language of the people of Hinomoto.
The people believed in kami as ancestors.
From the Continent, immigrants came and achieved political power. They eradicated Wosite.
A religion was created, with god-like kami. The ruling class claimed descent from the gods.
Kanji writing was imported from China and made to replace Wosite.
The Mononobe clan tried to resist the power movement but failed.
By the time of Shoutoku Taishi in the 7th century, Wosite began to disappear and history was re-written.
The true history remains in the Wosite documents.
