Category Archives: Japanese national idiosyncrasy

The end or just the beginning?

The recent school gate scandal in Japan showed one of the biggest Japanese national idiosyncrasies which I have been pursuing after for  the last thirty years.

A former finance ministry bureaucrat Mr. Sagawa and the prime ministers secretary Mr. Yanase as well did their job following the justice of the “seken” they belong to under the circumstance that even the justice is comparative in Japan due to the lack o the concept of absolute.

It would be really hard for a Japanese to stick to their own opinion or own justice when there is no place for independent individuals in Japan.

Even the deputy prime minister Mr. Aso revealed that his personal opinion and social opinion (following the justice of his “seken”) differs each other accidentally(as usual).

You can hardly survive Japan without bending the justice, it means almost the same as die.

Since there is no concept of independent individuals facing God(absolute) one by one in Japan, at the Meiji restoration in 1868 Japanese fabricated the story that the emperor as a Human God, and to protect the people not to face the society individually called group identity not like the western society, Japanese made all the imported social system including the education system as “tatemae” means things should be, and “seken =small community” and “ijime=bully” as “honne” means the real mind.

Western people developed the modern civilisation separating body and soul temporally while Japanese  were forced to separate them by modern civilisation and all became schizophrenia. 

The lack of secularisation made Japan remain as premodern society just like medieval world.

My journey of pursuit after Japanese national idiosyncrasies ended ended up with the worst result as the Japanese government has been occupied by a cult called Nippon Kaigi showing the characteristics of unsecularised society which is the mixture of religious crime and political crime.

I wrote in the previous column,

“ I believe Japanese are like convinced criminal believing their inerrancy or infallibility.”

I’m convinced now this was brought up as a substitute of the human God(almighty) after the Emperor made a declaration “the Emperor as a human” since Japan lost in the world war two.

Hopefully this worst experience being uncivilised in 21st century left out as the Japan Galapagos would become the trigger for getting civilised and become an universal country.

How to get enlightened

  1. Reset your mind set to the factory default, thinking and believing.
  2. If you can’t solve the issue with the science you have to believe.
  3. Thinking and believing always balance out.
  4. Be logical, no compromise, no shortcuts, avoid any contradiction.
  5. Face your self straight, objectify yourself and face the fact.
  6. Society is composed of you and others nothing else.
  7. Everything is within yourself, you can’t reach All outside yourself, you can reach All through inside yourself.
  8. You have to be connected straight with the universe without any shortcuts.
  9. Even if you conclude your logics with shortcuts it always comes back to the same point.
  10. There’s no shortcuts in your life it always balances out.

Steps for the Japanese to get civilised.

  1. If you don’t have yourself you can hardly face yourself.

  2. If you don’t face yourself, you can hardly have philosophy there.

  3. If you don’t have philosophy, you can hardly get individually independent.

  4. If you can’t get individually independent, you can hardly find something absolute(GOD).

  5. If you don’t have GOD, you can hardly find the justice.

  6. If you don’t have justice, no moral would prevail

  7. If moral don’t prevail, lies prevail all over.

  8. If lies prevail all over, truth would disappear.

  9. That’s all about Japan.

  10. Yourself is everything.

  11. Everything is within yourself, you can’t reach All out side yourself, but can reach through inside yourself.

  12. Why you can’t get individually independent is not because of the absence of GOD, absence of God is because you can’t get individually independent.

Kunio Yanagita my grand father the founder of the folklore in Japan

I wanted to know what my grand father was thinking about modern civilization.

Fortunately Kunio Yanagita left lots of books and words through the dialogue or conference or speech he made, and happened to find he has been to Florence when he was working for the United Nation in Geneva to see that famous painting the birth of Venus which symbolise the syncretism of theism and Greek myth.

In ten years he established a book titled “the birth of Momotaro” believed that Japan should have the same kind of story on the background.

I was delighted to know my grand father was thinking the same way and that pushed him to establish the folklore institution in Japan.

I was also delighted to to know Kunio was thinking the same way that what he’s learned at school didn’t quite link to his daily life.

Kunio pointed out lots of national idiosyncrasy which I felt exactly the same.

Kunio was aiming to publish Japanese original social studies text books but unfortunately at that time after the WW2 GHQ had a big control on Japanese education therefore Kunio’s dream was not realised.

Kunio emphasised the importance of education to promote the good voters since Japanese people follow somewhat wiser people so easily without thinking deeply like sheep or fish.

As I researched along all the books written by famous scholars including my grand father and my uncle and found out all the scholars of my uncle’s or father’s generation

never admit Japan is behind, and even emphasised that Japanese culture or civilization is different from those of the western world.

I tried to prove that Japanese society is not secularised therefore not civilised and remained pre modern analysing the western way of thinking.

I emphasised on one of the Japanese biggest traits All or None which simply shows Japanese primitiveness without individual in the middle.

Since christian way of thinking don’t have the concept none, because they describe the universe as an existence.

And at the same time I tried to prove western way of thinking is based on the simple self and other or subject and object theory that is the fundamental methodology of the philosophy today the logics.

Since the modern civilisation is based on the logics and individuals, Japan lacks those two fundamental factors which made Japan pre modern without secularisation.

It shows that Japanese don’t have a habit of objectifying themselves thats why there’s no independent individuals in Japan and that became a main cause of Japan remained pre modern.

Besides since Japan imported the western way of thinking at the Meiji restoration, Japanese kept on objectifying objects not subjects, supposed to be objectifying subjects due to the lack of subject or self.

I squeezed out Individualogy

I was keen to explain how the modern civilization is composed by creating a new word “individualogy” and tried to prevail among Japanese and spread on the internet as well as live video streaming.

Reactions of the audience was against my expectation and obliged to close because of the persistent annoyance from a troll.

I believe that the philosopher should think with one’s own brain not depending on famous established philosopher’s words.

So I wanted to connect with the universe with my own knowledge and might starting from proving existence of God.
