Slightly more than 1 year ago, I had reported my finding of a pattern in the Japanese, Chinese (?) system of numbers.
(After having initial inspirations from how certain phonetics of Indian, Japanese, Chinese, English and other worldly language, match to almost similar extent and how numbers are also said in somewhat phonetic matching, how Asia had a lunar calender in the ancient times, hence Japanese and India system have similar phonetic, concerning eg a calender or numbers, the words for time etc are said in many instances, the almost exactly same way, I suspected, that there would be patterns in scriptographs and there are. All claims of technical nature on this website, are often supplied with evidences of such, and those that haven’t been corroborated, will be done with time, as permits one’s life.)
** In addition to the above, I had mentioned, how, English 7, is totally a copy of Chinese, and Japanese 7, “七 or 7”, with topographic variation. In this particular example, rotating one, upside down, than the other, if you would like, check which one and whats the sense of rotation, eg clock-wise or anti-clock-wise.
With this article, you will see, that, almost all English numbers, might simply have been copied from these, Japanese, Chinese kanji, except 4 with such a special and elaborate reason, that, I won’t claim that here. But also I have shown at times how Indian Devanagari scripts, at times, also derive the same way, from Hiragana Alphabet System, the latter being at-least 1500 years older in its present form and the original Chinese is one of the oldest in the world?
People claim Sanskrit is the original user of Devanagari, but, since, there are no evidence so far, that one has ever talked about “non-verbally“, that one can show that its originally 1500 years old, and there are some other serious technical reservations in my mind towards this, which I have pronounced on this website, eg why Devanagari is only a script of alphabet, of only 3-4, North Indian Language which are mostly 2 or 3 if we are to discard recent political division of language, Devanagari simply might have been used or evolved within last few 100 years of India’s History.
Note that Odia Language and Bengali Language are far older than, Hindi eg but do not use Sanskrit Alphabet Devanagari, but the claim, is, Almost all Indian Languages, originate from Sanskrit. That runs into more than 20 and subtract 4 South Indian or Dravidian Based Language, then, why all other, ~ 15 languages, don’t use Sanskrit Alphabet Devanagari.
I have also given my reason: The 3/4 states that use Devanagari are most well populated region of India, in its recent past and a political theory can not totally manufactured, there will be serious lack of evidences. Such theories are often engineered though and given to a totally language, religious and socially divisive political nation state that India is, this seems so.
The evolution of Devanagari Based Alphabet might have occurred previously, but I checked a script, on Wikipedia that gives the evolution history of many Indian language, and the script is totally different from what it is now, towards 1500 years ago. But these 4-5 alphabet symbols of Devanagari are almost same or right-away copied from Hiragana as one example. (by omitting a few parts, as here in case of English, copying from Chinese eg. I suspect it was all a Imperial Practice in Asia where Britain and Europe led forces might be imperially assimilating Chinese and Japanese culture, philosophy, language and anything of great importance to society. Hence India being a subservient undercurrent having not much decisive powers as to what its society must or must not accept kept on bullying its lesser educated brethren as to India is an Indigenous Culture.
This fact is at the base of nationalistic propagandist agendas that is easy to mobilize on sentimental grounds even when the populace does not support the merit of the political movement by itself, “Are you with India or with India” must be the undercurrent. But this shows up as a copying in today’s terms, because I am deeply seeing this. I have often said this by now, I didn’t know any grand technicalities of Sanskrit or Japanese or Chinese but by now I am finding these amazing facts that just also need be explained. And thats my take. Of-course give it another 5 years and you will see, a lot of anti-religious mentality will grow towards this, which would reject such finding, BUT I would be happy to be wrong here although my back and neck and everything pains. I would also be happy to be wrong about any fall outs in my love life, but no say there as well. )
As a final note I would like to mention a point, all phonetics are merely unifying to “only” what I have described as Sun Theory of Language and Philosophy etc. Check yesterday’s linked article. A side note: Read that “only” not as the only answer but as I have said before “There is not only one way to truth, but there aren’t many either”. Otherwise I would stop and do something else. But I know there is only a few ways, and there is a far greater chance and wisdom to keep trying than bully yourself by speculations of negations.
Here is what seems to me to be the rules, involved, in carrying out the task of creating the 10 digits of the Japanese system. And since there would be perhaps other rules involved, as of now, which I am not aware of, I am not citing this result for Chinese. Just mentioning. Read the linked article, from 2012, which showed the results in the first instance of these findings; my finding of a pattern in the Japanese Number System.
Rule 1. For the group of numbers 1-3; remember to count the open-sides. Higher numbers are mere addition of previous numbers. eg 1 is a horizontal 一 and 2 is two horizontal parallel 一 like this: 二.
[see then, English 1 is merely a topographic rotation, that is a pure angular twist. You will see, pretty much all other numbers of English, are also formed, by rotating or encircling an open side etc. eg see 5 五, omit mostly the closing side on left]
Rule 2, 3: See that, the numbers have been divided into groups, where in each group, a new rule is employed and then to count from there. i) for the group of numbers 4 – 5; by counting only open sides for this group, the numbers are formed by special selection as shown and not by adding previous numbers ii) for the group of numbers 6 – 9; by subtracting, than by adding . (so start from 9)
Rule 3: I merged rule 3 into 2 and sub-itemized into i) and ii). Smart? I think necessary. They say “necessity is the mother of invention”. I thought last night, as I was totally ill, by body pain and head ache, and didn’t do much except weeping in pain, “what if, invention is actually a baby of inspiration as inspiration died quite young and necessity was the only aya available in the neighborhood to take care of these baby inventions. The father was totally taken to be abusive, towards society’s tastes and high handed dealing with everything, so the poor guy doesn’t often show up. He loved inspiration, in a total spell of Romance, then inspiration after bearing the pain of invention, died young. The abusive father married, necessity and its necessity which now communicates with society and the father mostly thinks of more romance and more babies.”
Here is the rules then, without any more drama.
1 = 一 = 西
六6、七7、八8、九9=西 [Define 9 first then go on omitting 1, 2 sides …, although this is quite not simple as said now, eg 7 to 6 is not clear]
10 = 十=西
Note that: 1一 is a single side and 10 being an end of digit, is a criss-cross of two single lines; 十, saying: enough.
Next time you see a kanji or kanji part like that ask yourself is it connected to the word “enough” in any way? You will have discovered perhaps another fact.
