How to say “I” (me or mine) in Japanese; #mdashf #kanji5

After writing this article, this is what I realized, following a pattern  of what would be called “kanji equations” the kanji for watashi also follows a kanji equation; 私 = 仏 − 亻+ 禾. [watashi = hotokeninben + nogihen] (says I/me is like a Lord, who owns this rice or eats this rice) Check the image in the bottom.

How to say “I” (me or mine) in Japanese; wa’ta’shi.

Note that: a real distinction between I, me or mine comes from what are called “particles”. It defines; to-I, by-I, on-I, From-I etc. The few help-objects that does so (by, to, from, on, in … ) in strictly phonetic language like Japanese or Indian languages are called as Particles. (Be rest assured particles have never been studied formally in Indianic languages, at-least as particles.)

Note also that: (I have said this somewhere in last 1 year or more, wata is whats rice in Indian, written vat or bhat, that what the 1st kanji is here, its called nogi-hen or nogi part. nogi is rice, or ear of rice, which is why this kanji looks like a rice-ear, the plant-tip. shi is like ji or shri. It could be that rice just denotes the Lord, farmer, owner etc. Nose then gives the human depiction. I or me to be known as “I who eats this rice” or “I who owns this rice” etc)

Note; if you want to see this word from Sun-unified theory of language: watashi is matashi = mahata-shri or maharaj etc which are only depiction of Sun-the-Lord and applicable as: Me/I. In Odia eg ambhe and ame (we ) in reference to one-self is taken as arrogance that befits maharaj or King or Lord. But it comes from Amiy = Sun.

I am an experimental particle physicist, traveler, teacher, researcher, scientist and communicator of ideas. I am a quarkist and a bit quirky ! Hypothesis non fingo, eppur si muove, dubito cogito ergo sum are things that turn me on ! Researcher in experimental high energy physics (aka elementary particle physics; like “quarks, leptons & mesons and baryons”) … Teacher of Physics (and occasionally chemistry and maths) Blogger (check my website; ! Love to read read and read but only stuff that interest me. Love to puff away my time in frivolities, just dreaming and may be thinking. Right now desperately trying to streamline myself.
