UH alumna to discuss megaliths of ancient Japan
The University of Hawaii at Hilo will host a public lecture by retired California state university professor of systems engineering Harriet Natsuyama about megaliths and writing systems of Hinomoto, ancient Japan.
Her talk starts at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 1 in University Classroom Building Room 100.
The people of Hinomoto created several writing systems full of physics and philosophy, and some of their language continues to survive in modern Japanese. A highly sophisticated megalithic system also was developed to function as a solar calendar observatory, which is still keeping track of time deep in the Hida Mountains of central Japan.
“Decoding Rocks and Words of Hinomoto: Hidden Wisdom of Space and Time” will examine the knowledge and wisdom contained in the ancient rocks and words that recently were uncovered and decoded after being hidden from view for thousands of years.
