Hawaii Tribune Herald - - COMMUNITY -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call 932-7038.
