The blue man
Who is the blue man? Actually he is not blue. I just colored him that way so he would be more visible.
He seems to have been some important old man. Maybe an ancestor to the Chinese?
The Chinese have through their long history of about 5000 years been worshipping Heaven. There is a park in Beijing where you can see and read about this worship. Who was Heaven? He seems to look like a man. With a head. Is there some connection to the blue man?
Why is the blue man turning into a traitor? We see him here up side down.
The blue man standing on a line has the meaning of establishing, setting up and founding something. Someone is ascending the throne. Who? The blue man?
The blue man is climbing a tree. Why is he doing that? And what does it mean that he is taking advantage of something?
Here is the blue man and a mouth. The meaning is that the blue man had to leave for some reason. He had to be away from something. Why is his mouth there? What did he eat? Why did he have to die?
Because of what? The blue man again? Inside an enclosure.
Was he arrogant?
The Chinese character above has the meaning yellow. It is also the short form for the Yellow Emperor, a legendary ruler and ancestor of the Chinese nation. Here we see the blue man and a 田-field on him.
This character is similar to the last one. It looks like the 田-field has been separated from the blue man. The character has the meaning separate. Could something have happened that changed history?
Here is the Yellow Emperor again. He is under some kind of shelter. Could this mean that it came a great people through him? Or many peoples?
Here we have the blue man on a fire. Here the character tells that he is good, naked and red. Wait a little. What? Did you say the blue man is red?
I believe the Chinese did not only have this information, they also put it into there characters when they formed them. Mainly because that what had happened in the world was their history. Let me tell you what the Bible says.
is similar to because Adam was created in the image of God. According to the Bible
"So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created Him" Gen. 1:27
that has the meaning extend and many, refers to the next verse
"Then God blessed them, and God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it" Gen. 1:28
"have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth." Gen. 1:28
The Yellow Emperor refers to Adam in Eden
"The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed." Gen. 2:8
The 田-field originates from the garden of Eden.
"And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, 'Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die." Gen. 2:16-17
The character has the meaning to leave and to die. When Adam ate of the forbidden fruit with his mouth he had to leave the garden of Eden. He also had to die later on.
has the meaning pure, loyal, faithful and bare. Adam was all that before the fall. The character has a fire in it. Maybe that is a picture of the glory of God that where covering man in the beginning. Here from the Bible
"And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and where not ashamed." Gen. 2:25
is the story of how Adam (and Eve) took advantage of the tree. They wanted to become like God.
"For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasent to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked" Gen. 3:5-7
When Adam sinned he had to leave the garden. We see in that Adam and Eden is separeted.
"The Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So He drove out the man" Gen. 3:23-24
Look how frustrated Adam seems to be. Everything was different outside the garden.
is the fallen man, the traitor. Adam disobeyd God. He was haughty, arrogant and excessive .
Because of this there are suffering in the world. is Adam in the garden, the enclosure. We are now all following his way of living. The reason to all this is the old man. The blue man.
Could it really be that the Chinese had all this knowledge before? Why not if it is a true story. It is mindblowing I know that. But the Chinese have been worshipping Heaven (or Shangdi) for thousands of years just ended it as late as 1911.
The blue man.
Or actually he is not blue.
He is red.
Adam has the meaning red in the original Hebrew text. Probably because the ground where he was taken was red.
Arthur, I believe the Chinese originated from the line of Shem as the Jews did. Exactly from which of them I do not know.
