Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 28 (Part One)
Well, if you are using the term noosphere as you stated, I think the term 世直し would probably qualify. Yo-naoshi [= change, i.e., repair, restore, the world] was a term in wide use during the period from the close of the Tokugawa shogunate to the time of Japan's incursions in Asia, and certainly included the Meiji Restoration and the rise of new religions.
Omoto was certainly part of this yo-naoshi movement, as was the Sakurai, Hashimoto Kingoro, and the meetings in Morihei Ueshiba's dojo. I think the issue here is the transformation and adaptation of an idea like yo-noashi from the ‘noosphere' to the existing political circumstances in Japan at the time.
