VISION 2, HADO of words
In the beginning of March, 1993, I went to Paris for the first time, to meet with Professor Aimer Limoge of the University of Paris, School of Descartes.
I learned that Limoge Current (Limoge Hado) developed by Professor Limoge is very effective for easing the pain of terminal cancer patients, drug addicts, and alcoholics. I invited Prof. Limoge to Japan in July of 1992, and we reached a basic agreement to proceed with joint research. My visit this time to Paris was to further pursue that project.
Prof. Limoge, a well known scholar in this field, came to meet us himself at Charles de Gaulle Airport. As I knew that he does not speak English so fluently, I did not know what to say when I first saw him, but without thinking, I was smiling, and saying “Hil” We shook our hands. It was a moment of Hado resonance.
Our visit to Paris was very fruitful and ended in a week. I will be reporting to the members about the technical aspects of our project in the near future, but today I would like to share with you what I felt during this short trip about “words” from the Hado perspective.
Japan is an insular country and the Japanese are a more or less homogeneous race.
Yet even in this country there are said to be a few hundred different dialects. I have a friend from Kagoshima, and when I heard him speak to his mother on the phone, I could not understand what he was saying at all.
I was born and brought up in an urban district, but even in Yokohama there are a several words which are unique to the local community. For instance, the well known word “JAN” (meaning “isn’t it?”)is fairly understandable, but there is another word which I don’t think most Tokyoites would understand which goes “KOREDENAKKIYO” This means “Now we are even” but this phrase is used only in the district surrounding the Honmoku district in Yokohama.
When I was in the Eighth grade, I transferred to a school in Maebashi because of my fathers business. At the beginning I felt quite resistant to the word “DANBE”(meaning “it’ s something”), but soon I was using the word myself, and my brothers in Yokohama teased me a lot.
More than 20 years ago before TV and radio networks covered the nation as they do now, young people who came to Tokyo from rural districts had a deep inferiority complex because of their unique accents.
Even in this small insular country Japan, we have quite a diversity of dialects.
If we think globally, the number of languages easily exceeds 180, the number of countries. I believe the number of languages that differ slightly is well into the thousands.
It was the opposite in the Bible. It says in the Bible that first there was only one language. Then People tried to build the Tower of Babel up to heaven. They became so arrogant and decadent that the Lord took from us our common language, creating different languages in each district, and making us speak only our own language. That let the creation of nations. When we encounter this explanation, a the majority of us in this modern era would probably respond in a somewhat doubtful way, and they would not agree completely.
In the course of the past few tens of thousands of years, we human beings have come to hold so much distrust of one another. As a result, it has become our nature to avoid saying “Yes” from the bottom of our hearts to phenomena which do not have a scientific background. In other words, modern people open their minds only to technologies and methods for which reproducibility is confirmed through SCIENCE and TOOLS such as computers. Therefore, I believe it is meaningful to grasp words and language as Hado, and to investigate language from a Hado perspective.
French people love dogs so much. Many keep dogs as pets, and we saw a great deal of dog do in town. I heard that there are professional cleaners to deal with dog do. It is quite unthinkable in Japan, but dogs are allowed in restaurants, and while the masters are enjoying meal, the dogs keep quiet under the table. They observe good manners and do not bark or growl, even when they see other dogs.
When we were invited to Prof. Limoge’ s home, we met a cute little dog there. I discovered there and then that the dog understands French, Japanese, and the English spoken by Dr. Lorenzen, who accompanied us. Of course, the dog understood his master’s words the best, but still, the dog showed us the same response when we talked to him in our native tongue.
Needless to say, this does not mean that the dog understands each different language like we humans do, but the dog intuits the meaning through tones of words and gesture, I felt that this was an illustration of the original communication based on HADO.
Even chimpanzees, said to be advanced creatures, are said to memorize at the most two or three words after many years were spent to teach the chips words.
However, animals can send signs and messages to their peers by letting out certain sounds. For example, when they want to convey danger, love, food, anger, direction, they let out sounds with the Hado specific to each of their Peers.
In the case of dogs, as dogs have been living with humans for tens of thousands of years, I am sure that they can understand human language by Hado way.
As an aside from the main point, there is a theory that dogs were sent by God to help us human beings. Therefore, though the Chinese characters for all the other animals use a left-hand radical meaning “beast”, the character for dog does not. Rather it is similar to the character TEN meaning “heaven”.
Even in English, if you spell DOG backwards, the word you get is GOD.
In this way, I see that language and words as Hado itself. Instinctively or purposely, a specific vibration (Hado) generated among animals can be transmitted as sound when the animal has the ability (for humans, this function is in the vocal chords) to change Hado to sound, Just as there is a visible light range, there is also an audible sound range. Though we humans cannot always hear them, there must be a range of Hado that each type of animal uses to communicate.
From that perspective, we can understand the wonderful underwater collaborative group movements of fish.(April, 1993)
