Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 18
I've never heard the term "sakura" used in that context.
In the book I mentioned above, the authors apply this "Silence Principle" to ancient myths. According to them, Creation Myths in particular encode vital information about the movement of the stars that can be transmitted over millennia.
I thought it might be interesting to apply some of these ideas to Morihei's recounting of Japanese Creation Myths.
