10. Ametuti: Cosmos and Earth

The above image of M51 Whirlpool Galaxy is by NASA and European Space Agency and is in the public domain. The Wosite chart in this article is by S. Sakata.

This article describes Wosite cosmogenesis, how Cosmos and Earth are created by primordial forces of Universe. While we show only one short passage, the insights expressed here have been derived from other passages in Wosite literature. It is quite difficult to render into contemporary English. It requires study and practice of esoteric and hidden teachings. It is our intention to offer our modest knowledge so that people everywhere may benefit from it.

Hotuma Tutae Ametuti Passage

Ametuti Passage H.T

There is a very profound description of the origination of Cosmos, Sun, Moon, and Earth, found in Hotuma Tutae lines 2576-2583. This passage in Wosite is reproduced above, as verse in rhythms of five and seven. Next, we present the voicing of the verse. As you read it out loud, please sound each syllable clearly and consciously.

ame tuti no      hirakeru toki no

hi to iki ga:      me wo to wakarete

wo ha ame ni,      me ha tuti to naru.

wo no utuho      kase umi, kase mo

ho to wakare.      u wose no mune ha

hi no wa naru.      i me no minamoto

tuki to naru.      tuti ha hani mitu;

katu hani ha      yama sato to naru.

Glossary for lines 2576-2585:

ame,  cosmos, sun.  tuti,  earth.  hirakeru,  opening, separating in a natural way.  toki,  time.  hi,  first (when written as shown).  iki,  breath, will, mind.  wakarete,  divide.  wo,  male aspect of energy.  me,  female aspect of energy.  naru,  to become.  utuho,  ‘space’ energy of universe.  kase,  repetetive motion.  umi,  born.  ho,  fire (when written as shown).  u, great. wose,  male energy.  mune,  breath, origin, root.  hi-no-wa,  sun (when written as shown).  i,  will, mind, intent.  minamoto,  essence.  tuki,  moon.  hani,  soil without water; stabilized, fixed, determinate.  mitu,  energy moving, flowing.  katu,  moreover.  yama,  mountain.  sato,  plain.

The passage in Wosite & English:

At the time when Ame and Tuti separate,

first breath divides into a pair of Me and Wo.

Wo becomes Ame/Sun,

while Me becomes Tuti/Earth.

Wo no Utuho becomes very hot like Ho and produces Kase,

and Kase separates out Ho.

U-wose produces Hi-no-wa.

The essence of I-me becomes Tuki.

Tuti is made of Hani and Mitu.

And Hani makes mountains and plains.

The passage in English:

At the time when Cosmos and Earth separate,

first breath divides into a pair of Male and Female energies.

Male energy becomes Sun, while Female energy becomes Earth.

Male aspect of Space energy becomes hot like Fire and produces Wind energy,

and Wind energy separates out Fire energy. Great Male energy produces Sun.

Essence of Female energy of will becomes Moon.

Earth is made of Soil and Water energies.

And Soil makes mountains and plains.


With the first breath of origin, various phenomena occur. First Utuho Space energy divides into a pair of Male and Female energies. The Male energy being lighter, it becomes Sun and other celestial bodies. This is called Ame. Female heavy energy firmly solidifies and becomes Earth and Moon.

Kase comes from Male cosmic energy. Kase Wind energy is a regular occurrence, repetitive motion. It means that something is happening, regularly repeating. Although Kase is unseen, it implies the passage of time, and even more importantly, that time itself exists.

The part of Kase that moves vigorously at high temperature is called Ho, Fire energy. These three —Utuho, Kase, Ho — are always moving strongly, and are Male cosmic energy.

Sun from the Male was placed near Earth. Moon from the Female was placed closer to Earth. Life forms of people are comprised of inter-workings and characteristics of the five: Utuho/Space, Kase/Wind, Ho/Fire, Mitu/Water, Hani/Soil. Male energy of humans has Sun as its essence; Female will of humans has Moon as its essence.

The ground of Earth can be divided into Mitu and Hani. The hardened stable Hani makes the soil of mountains and fields. Water is a form of Mitu. The nature of Mitu is to increase as it flows, gathering while not changing its essence, and flows without stopping.

It is important to note that Space, Wind, Fire, Water, Soil, are not “things”; they are primordial energies with characteristic types of activity and therefore they represent processes. We may think in terms of gerunds: Soil hardening, Water flowing, Fire heating, Wind blowing, Space activating. Although this is rather simplistic, it is a start toward deeper understanding. 

We suggest that you spend time sounding the vowels to feel their primal energies. Write Wosite vowels and imagine their deep meanings.

It seems to us best to use the original Wosite terms for the five energies, since they are so rich in meaning.

Ame and Tuti, Cosmos and Earth

This Wosite verse describes the separation of Uchuu into Ame and Tuti, Universe into Cosmos and Earth. It explains how Earth and Moon are created differently from the rest of the Cosmos.

Uchuu may be said to be Universe, if we agree that Universe is All That Is. The essence of Universe is energy. Primordial energies are the source of our Cosmos. These energies are Utuho, Kase, Ho, Mitu, and Hani. Because the original energy divided into Male and Female aspects, the five primordial energies also bear these aspects. Utuho, Kase, Ho are Male energies. Mitu and Hani are Female.

To most astronomers, cosmos and universe are practically synonymous. However to esoteric thinkers, they may not be exactly the same. We may say that astronomers study the cosmos, the observable universe. The word “cosmos” originally meant to ancient Greeks the orderly universe. We may think of planets, sun, stars, galaxies as being observable and orderly. In recent times, the presence of dark matter and dark energy has been discerned. Thus, the study of the cosmos by astronomers now includes invisible yet observable (through their effects) matter and energy. Let us agree to use the term “cosmos” to mean this kind of universe.

Ame is Cosmos, the universe of outer space: sun, stars, galaxies, … Ame/Cosmos is produced by primordial Male energies. Tuti/Earth, is produced by primordial Female energies. Ame is not identical to Uchuu. In our view, Cosmos is only a part of Universe.

In summary, Uchuu/Universe includes Ame/Cosmos and Tuti/Earth, as well as the laws and principles of Uchuu/Universe and its unseen energies.

6.1 Motoake (Amoto) Creation of Universe


Motoake (Amoto) Origin of Universe

Motoake (Moto-ake; moto, origin; ake, opening) literally means “opening of origin”, i.e., creation of Universe. Amoto (A-moto; A, cosmos, Universe; moto, origin) is a synonym, and it means creation of Universe.

The profound and beautiful Motoake chart was designed by Toyoke-sama to teach how the universe is created by the Original Presence, Amemiwoya. The charts were especially created by S. Sakata for this site. We colored the central circle pink to show it clearly. In the circle are three symbols. The upper spiral which opens counter-clockwise is the   symbol of Ame, Cosmos. The other spiral which opens clock-wise is the  Wa  symbol of Wa, Earth. In the very center, the ho-tai  U  symbolizes the movement of creation caused by Amemiwoya. This is most important. The central circle represents the place of Amemiwoya.

Creation was brought about by movement. This is the beginning and the origin of Universe. It divided into Earth and Cosmos, the rest of Universe. The Wosite letters  A, U, Wa  describe this process. They are in the center of the figure, and they represent the Center of Universe and Amemiwoya. Here is an enlargement of the three central ideograms.


Enshrined in the central circle with Amemiwoya is Minakanushi, first of mankind on earth, and first of the top leaders of Japan, the Kunitokotachi. This place is called  Amoto. It is symbolized by the North Star.

The eight ideograms in the innermost ring are the names of the eight Akuta-kami: To, Ho Ka, Mi, Ye, Hi, Ta, Me. These eight govern the corresponding eight phonemes. The Akuta have special important functions having to do with space and time.

Next, we turn our attention to the second Motoake chart with two colors.

Motoake En.

There are eight kami in the second ring; they are called Anami-kami. (The ring is colored pink.) Anami-kami are in charge of the phonemes A, I, Hu, He, Mo, Wo, Su, Si (the phonemes in the pink ring). Anami-kami are Kami that bring down cosmic vibrations to form the human body. They control the mime-katati.

How is this done? In response to the phonemes, thirty-two Misohu-kami produce human mime-katachi (human appearance and constitution of the body). Misohu-kami are thirty-two reverberations of voice. They are shown colored yellow in the outer two rings of the chart.

Because there are eight kami in each of the first two rings and sixteen in each of the next two rings, there are a total of forty-eight kami represented by the forty-eight ideograms for the phonemes of Wosite.

Hutomani and Motoake

The Motoake chart shown above symbolizes the manifestation process. It was designed by the sage Toyoke-sama to help people understand the process of Universe. It comes from the Hutomani document written in Wosite by Amateru Amakami. As we stated in Post #1, the original name given by its author was Moto ra tutaye no humi. This means a humi for solving a problem by applying the principles of Amenaru-miti, the Way or Law of the Cosmos, as taught by the Motoake chart.

Meaning of Hutomani

What does the word Hutomani mean? Let us break it down into its parts.

Hu is the appearance of a new strong movement, an inspiration from Ame, Cosmos/Universe.

To is the gathering of the inspirational movement and stabilizing and solidifying it. It also refers to the teaching of To no Wosite from ancestor To-no-Kunisatsuchi as taught by Toyoke-sama.

Ma means receiving new energy, gathering the energy, and conveying it down to earth.

Ni is harmonizing the energy and manifesting that energy.

So, Hutomani means:

A new strong movement of inspiration appears from Universe. The movement is gathered, stabilized, solidified according to the teaching of To no Wosite. The new energy of movement is received, gathered, and conveyed down to earth. This energy is harmonized and manifested on earth.

We will provide you, dear Reader, further explanations of Hutomani and the Motoake.


4.1 Ama, Amakami, Amemiwoya

Ama and Amakami

The words that we study in this article all begin with ama which is written with the cosmic allograph for the Wosite  a .  Ama is the Wosite word for cosmos, which includes sun, stars, and galaxies. It also describes a highly respected person. The  a  in ama is written with the cosmic spiral of  a.

Kami is a word from ancient times which is still used today. Kami is a powerful force of nature or a person who possesses great power and has earned great respect. Amakami is a special term, a title, for a secular-spiritual leader in Wosite times. Amakami was a leader who stayed connected with Ama Cosmos. Amateru is the best-known Amakami in Hotuma Tutae. Let us try to understand Amakami through Wosite analysis.

First, for Ama, look at the right of the illustration below, and note how Ama is written in Wosite. The usual form of  a  has been replaced by a spiral that opens to the left. This is a special ideogram, an allograph, of a  when it is associated with Cosmos or Universe. In Wosite analysis, we treat it the same as the basic circular utuho-tai for  a.

「Amakami」Ancient TENNOU

The ideogram below it in the figure is ma, the circle of utuho-tai with an overlaid T-glyph indicating strong will. Therefore Ama refers to the energy from the Original Presence, the presence that originated Universe.

Finally the term we analyze is amakami.  The ideogram for ka means shining, as in kaguya. It also implies megumi wo watasu, sending blessings. Mi is a wind-like energy which is balanced and sent down. The amakami of the past always shone brightly for his people, sending them abundance equally, without thought of personal gain.



Amanohara (also Ahara) has important meanings in ancient Japanese. (See our later posts on Ahara and Takamanohara.) Amanohara is the place of the Amakami’s Congress. Amakami as the leader communicated with Ame Cosmos and the ancestors who returned there. This meeting of communication with Universe was held at the miya, Amakami’s residence. The meeting is called maturi.

Although now we think of matsuri as a festival at a miya Shinto shrine, the original meaning of maturi was connecting with Universe and its laws for the welfare of the people. By connecting with Universe, Amakami was following the Amenaru-miti, the Laws of Universe. This was Amakami’s most important responsibility.

Amanohara has the greater meanng of Cosmos and all the Laws of Universe. Regretfully now, these meanings of Amanohara have been lost to modern people.


Amemiwoya is the Great Source, that which produced Universe, the essence of existence. Amemiwoya generated Universe, and is the Presence of the Origin. Amemiwoya is Energy from the Original Presence. Amemiwoya taught the To no Wosite, the Amenaru-Michi, and other great teachings of The Way. 


Ame is the universe. Mi is a high honorific of great respect. Woya usually means parent. But Amemiwoya is not a person, rather “Something Immensely Great”.  


4. A and the Originating Energy of Utuho-tai


Autumn equinox setting sun (Okunomichi)


Utuho-tai and A Vowel


1.  The ideogram a  is a dot in a circle. The circle is utuho-tai. What, then, is utuho? Utuho is uchuu universe when it is umu born out of void; it is unseen, it is pure potential. In the illustration below, utuho is spelled out in Wosite ideograms for u-tu-ho, read top to bottom.




2.  Ho-tai is the triangular form of  u  vowel energy. See the article posted about ho-tai. Ho-tai represents the flow of energy from the left corner upward to the top, then down the right side, and finally horizontally to the left. The dot in the center of the triangle signifies an originating energy. This ideogram means great heat moving even now, as is necessary for the continuous origination of all things.

Next, consider the ideogram for tu. Tu is made up of the Y-like glyph of ta-sou overlaid on the triangle of  u. The Y-glyph represents reception of energy and the sound of the consonant  t. Note the junction at the center of the Y. The two arms gather energies from above, and balance and harmonize the energies; the vertical stem brings the energy downward.

The third ideogram is ho. It is made up of ha-sou for consonant  h  and hani-tai for vowel  o. The two lines of ho represent duality: up and down, male and female, etc. The square of hani-tai is like a box, bounding the contents and completing creation.

Utuho is the birth of all things, of all life.

Next, we look at words containing the utuho-tai, the  a  vowel sound.

Asa, morning


3.  The Japanese word asa (shown in red) means morning. In explaining asa, we consider the expression asakotoni. This means every morning, as in “every morning the sun rises.”

Let us analyze asakotoni. First, asa. Asa is made up of two circular ideograms. There is a dot in the first, and a horizontal line in the second. The  a ideogram is the unseen original energy, full of potential. The Sa ideogram has a horizontal line which indicates the balancing of energy. Sa is very bright and full of light. This helps us to understand asa as the time of day when the sun is rising and very bright, it has full potential.

Koto as a word is still used even now, but for the Wosite era, the meaning varies by each sentence. Asakotoni becomes a single concept through the particle* ni.  Thus asakotoni means “in every morning” or simply “every morning.”

* Particle, joshi:  Japanese particles, joshi or teniwoha, are suffixes or short words in Japanese grammar that immediately follow the modified noun, verb, adjective, or sentence. Their grammatical range can indicate various meanings and functions, such as speaker affect and assertiveness (Wikipedia).  In other words, joshi is not a noun, verb, adverb, or adjective per se. We may consider them “connecting words” since they give the relationships between the other words. They are very important in Nihongo.

The Wosite energy analysis goes something like this. Look at the images on the left. We have discussed the dot and the bar. We already know the meaning of the vertical k line, and the Y glyph for the t sound. The plus symbol represents connecting the energies both vertically and horizontally.

Ame, rain


4.  Ame means rain. It is shown in red. The expression we will study here is ame to huru nari. First, let’s look at ame, on the right. We have the same a as before. Now for me we have the river-like image of mitu-tai vowel e with a T-like glyph for the M sound. The energy which is always flowing is received and sent down. This is the real meaning of rain.

The particle to connects with ame and emphasizes it. This is due to the emphasis of the hani-tai of to.

As for huru, there are two triangles. Hu contains two vertical bars for the back and forth or male and female aspects of energy.  Ru has the upside-down Y indicating energy that is moving down and dividing as it goes. Nari is a joshi.

Allographs of  A

5.  There are various allographs (alternate forms) of the ideogram  a:  the basic, the formal, and the cosmic. The different ways of writing it helps us understand what is meant. The cosmic allograph indicates a connection with Ame, Cosmos.
