  1. Ahhh, love the smell of incense on the breeze. One of the great things about living in the Japanese suburbs is that you are generally a stone’s throw away from a temple in any direction. You go for a nice relaxing afternoon walk and get a real aromatically inspired sense of the old world charm of Japan.

      • The incense that the monks use within the shrines and temples is often handmade. The stuff that people bring to honour the ancestors graves on special occasions is fairly likely to be the cheap mass-produced stuff from the supermarkets. But there is no mistaking the ancient intent that it carries on the breeze, which goes beyond just physical smell. Further to that Egyptian thing, you have probably heard about some their texts which describe a very advanced Triage system for dealing with patients according to injury that is strikingly similar to what is used in modern hospitals. A transmission of old hermetic knowledge methinks. They even had a system for opening the skull and relieving brain trauma and used obsidian scalpels which are harder and sharper than anything we make today with steel. Doctors more recently have realized this and they are starting to use them again. So fascinating!

      • Obsidian may be harder than some materials we use, but it fractures to much finer, sharper edges. THIS is why a “local man” (years ago) opted to have his operation done, using instruments made from sharpened obsidian, instead of the usual stainless steel. – The incisions would heal more completely – thus produce less scarring, and heal faster. – He was an archeologist, if I remember correctly. (This before my time, though.)
