- hi sakari, all
thanks for the input sakari. curious, are you japanese? where do you live currently?
i wonder about when the japanese came to japan? based on culture similarity, i would guess from china. most east asian people have mixed mongolian blood. its difficult to know what the original indigenous race was like.
my studies suggest that india and tibet are the oldest cultures of asia. i think both of them, and a lost culture of the gobi, were colonies of lemuria. a book i just read said that the mongolians began from atlantean exiles mixing with native women. im somewhat hesitant to believe this entirely, for i think there was always a native yellow race. although, its undeniable that a mix with the red, brown, and black races must have occurred in ancient times.
im guessing that the ainu are of the brown race of pacifica.
we are speaking academically, no offence was intended.
