the shimesuhen 礻 ( 礻, a kanji radical, radicals are called so when they occur as part of another kanji, eg 神 ) just occurred to me, how its created: Zoom it and see. Each part of the kanji: 礻is (almost) same, only topologically (that is geometrically) rotated before conjugated (glued, so as not to be removed from each other until death does not do them part)

That each part are two people, who are struck because they are husband and wife, and if you already got: your parents. (you can also see as two folded palms united as when you do namaskar) Your parents are namasya

(namasya: honorable, like divinity, thats where the idea of divine or Godly as represented by this kanji comes, its called shimesu, which I do not know exactly as of today as to why, eg phonetically isu means Lord/Divine etc, but there could be other meaning)

Take the two palms from the namaste and rotate one till it forms 礻, if not sue me. (sue末, in Japanese means: end, as in only latest or youngest, therefore could mean, NO MORE)

the extra dot-stroke shows the thumb? You got it. Our ancient people were smart but we should know, exactly how.

Last “fact”: Its an Asiatic practice where parents are considered divinely, hence first to be honored** when you get up in Morning, which is why shimesu is used in kanji to convey meaning first (hatsu means first, 初, which says divinity+action, hence 1st action hence 1st)

(** but also parents are universally honorable in different ways, society: ways change, philosophy so-so)
