Sumo: Ancient Ritual of Mars

An article in explores possible connections between Sumo wrestling and ancient Japanese mythology by Sf. R. Careaga titled “Sumo: Ancient Ritual to the Thunder God” has many aspects which correspond to the cyclic catastrophism scenario. I have always hoped for more communication with the Japanese culture. The language barrier has greatly limited access to this blog site. Amazingly this article is from a Japanese scholar in Kentucky.  The author attempts to link the mythology to Patton’s Saturn theory but I believe cyclic catastrophism gives the best explanation..

1. The ceremony is performed upon the center single step pyramid platform, the Dohyo, which is made of Earth. This corresponds with the island at the north pole of Mars which remained facing the Earth during each geostationary orbit, called the raqia or firmament in Genesis 1:6-8  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven.

2. The Dohyo is ringed with rice balls that signify bounty and plenty which was the vegetative life that existed on Mars as recently as 4,ooo- years ago. It was completely blasted to the Earth by hundreds of volcanoes between 3687 and 687 BC.

3. At each cardinal direction an offset in the ring represents the four heads of Brahma (RgVeda) and Osiris (Egyptian). These same features seen from the Norse aspect were pictured as four long-necked stags reaching for the highest branches of the “tree of life”.

4. Above the Dohyo is a hanging roof, but in the past it was an actual pillared roof above the platform. This represents the Earth when Mars was in a geostationary orbit above Mt. Kailas, known as “Indra’s (Mars) Home on Earth”. Because of this orbit the two planets remained stationary relative to one another.  Consequently the RgVeda wonders “what great carpenter built this invisible structure of the two worlds”.

5. Buried in the Dohyo are salt, kelp, dried squid and chestnuts which symbolize the minerals and different life forms blasted to the Earth during the Vedic Period.

6. The wrestlers have paper lightning bolts tied in their hair, symbolizing the tree of life, also known as Agni with the flaming hair, that rose up in the center of the northern island.

7. The combatants wear a tsuna, a loin cloth with five white lightning bolts and pose to simulate the thunderbolts recorded by early humans. They  stomp their feet to simulate the accompanying thunder.

Only cyclic catastrophism can explain these massive electrical discharges. Some of the large, incandescent iron meteorites blasted from Martian volcanoes, known as “Thor’s Hammer” in Norse myth, and vaijra in the RgVeda, created an ionized path between the ionospheres and the surface of the Earth and then back to Mars, through which the entire ionospheres discharged.  The resulting lightning spread across the entire sky and their shapes were simulated in ancient rock carvings.



The human compulsion to find absolute truths, however noble, too often cumulates in tyranny of the mind, or worse. Only an extreme skepticism toward science – and an open mindedness toward other modes of knowledge and ways of life, however alien – can help us avoid this danger.
