Hello, everyone, this is the editor of China story network. Today I’ll tell you the story of “Di Jun” in the book of mountains and seas. Welcome to pay attention.
Here, the book of mountains and seas is considered to be a relatively objective history book. It was edited and edited by Liu Xiang in the Western Han Dynasty before the Warring States period, with supplementary modifications. This is also the foothold for writing this article. If you don’t agree with this, the following content is of little value to you.
Dijun (Q ? n) “Jun” connects “Ye”, which is an important role in the book of mountains and seas, and is also the key to clarify the context of the characters. Some people also believe that the name “Dijun” represents multiple ancient emperors and is a collection.
“The great wilderness South Sutra” has: “Xihe, the wife of emperor Jun, was born for ten days.”
There are also: “emperor Jun begets emperor Hong, Emperor Hong begets Bai min, Bai min sells his surname, millet food, and makes four birds.”
Another: “emperor Jun gave birth to Hou Ji.”
Also: “emperor Jun’s wife e Huang, born in this three body country, surnamed Yao, millet food, makes four birds.”
Is it a little chaotic? The story we have heard before is: Xihe was the mother of the sun and was shot by Hou Yi on the 10th day of his birth; Empress e Ying, the daughter of Emperor Yao, married Emperor Shun; Hou Ji was the ancestor of Zhou Dynasty. His mother ginger didn’t step on the footprints of giants. These characters don’t seem to be next to each other. It’s hard to say that they are from a time. Why do they all have a relationship with emperor Jun? Is “Dijun” really a nickname for many people? Not at all.
Although China’s history is very long, the time recorded in historical materials is not long enough. This “not long enough” is relative to the length of the Chinese civilization. The Chinese civilization has been around 5000 years. Although this length remains to be discussed, there must be more than 3000 years, while our historical records only have more than 2000 years, with a gap of one or two thousand years, and what complements this gap is “legend”. “Legend” has its own characteristics, and the longer it spreads, the more distorted it becomes. Therefore, when we explore the historical truth, there are two simple criteria for selecting materials. One is to be as official as possible, that is, official history; One is to try to select historical materials close to the time of the event.
Most of the fairy tales we have heard are not recorded in official history, but adapted by people in the Han, Jin, Tang, song, and even Ming and Qing Dynasties based on literary works of the pre Qin period, and some are even compiled by Du. Many of them are derived from folklore, so they are also called folklore, and the dissemination ability of folklore is much greater than the influence of official historical materials. The reason why Guan Gong became a God was that peisongzhi made notes on the annals of the Three Kingdoms, adding many anecdotes. The Yuan zaju was based on this, which expanded the influence of the Three Kingdoms. Later, Luo Guanzhong wrote the romance of the Three Kingdoms, which had the influence of later generations. However, folk tales cannot be used as the basis for overturning historical data. We don’t use the romance of the Three Kingdoms to overturn the annals of the Three Kingdoms, but we use folklore to deny the classic of mountains and seas. Why? Or is it because everyone thinks that the book of mountains and seas is a absurd book, and the content is not credible? So what is the book of mountains and seas?
The book of mountains and seas is a witch script, and I agree with Mr. Lu Xun here. It is precisely because the book of mountains and seas is a witch book, and it is a witch book in ancient times, so it has great historical value. In the early stage of human society, witches and leaders are often combined into one. Therefore, in all dynasties, the emperor is the only person who has the power to sacrifice to heaven, called the son of heaven, which is also another relic of ancient witch culture. Even if it was later divided into secular power and clerical power, the status of witches was still very high until the ritual and music culture of the Zhou Dynasty appeared, and witches served God, which was different from later historians who were subject to secular power, so they could record history more objectively. So what are the obvious contradictions about Emperor Jun in the book of mountains and seas? Are those people really born to Dijun? Are Xihe, e Huang and others Dijun’s wives?
No, again. If we look at the marriage and fertility standards we understand today, it must not be, but if we look at it from the perspective of religion and philosophy, it is. Christians say that “the world is the people of God”; Materialists say that man is the product of nature; Idealists say that everything is a derivative of the “absolute spirit”. Whether it is nature, absolute spirit or God, it is an existence, and in Wu, it is called “emperor Jun”.
Therefore, the book of mountains and seas is a geographical history book with emperor Jun as the Supreme God. What we accept today is the history without God, and the book of mountains and seas is a history with God, but this God is not the God who promotes the development of history, but the creator God, so it does not affect the objectivity of the content recorded in the book of mountains and seas.
The virgin gives birth
There is a little personal view here. The “wife” in the book of mountains and seas is a verb, which can be understood as “lucky” rather than getting married. The result of “Dijun’s wife” is equivalent to “feeling pregnant”. Refer to “Jane diton’s egg” and “the Virgin gives birth”. Therefore, it can also be considered that the woman of “emperor Jun’s wife” is the head of the matriarchal clan, and the son born is the head of the paternal clan. “Emperor Jun’s wife” occurred in the transition period from the matriarchal clan society to the paternal clan society. The word “Sheng” cannot be understood as fertility, such as “emperor Jun begets emperor Hong” and “emperor Jun begets Hou Ji”. It cannot be inferred that emperor Hong and Hou Ji are the same person, or that the two people are brothers, but that they are all descendants of the God “emperor Jun”.
Emperor Jun, as a God, was a unique existence, but later generations confused him. In the Western Jin Dynasty, there was a Huang Fumi with high medical achievements. He was knowledgeable, but his access to information was limited, and he was keen to interpret. He annotated the historical records. In his annotation, he said “emperor Hao Mingjun”. This statement itself was correct, but it was based on the premise that Gao Xin was Emperor Hao in the historical records. Refer to Emperor Hao, Why can you say your name when you are born? Therefore, Gao Xin, di Hu and di Jun were completely confused by erroneous transmission, so we should pay attention to when reading historical records. If it is annotated by this person, we should pay attention to identification. Later, Huang Fumi compiled a book “emperor’s century” by himself, with all kinds of miscellaneous meetings. The words are well written, but the content is not enough for letters. Therefore, it is either a well written history or a good history. The ancient genealogy we see today, however, comes from this unreliable unofficial history, the emperor’s century, which has now become the mainstream.
Let’s take it literally again, e (Q ? n) The word means: walk slowly. Is this really the case? In the process of the evolution of Chinese characters, a word often derives many meanings, and even has opposite meanings. The word “Ye” may be. We know that most of the words combined with ye have distinctive meanings, such as handsome Jun, horse Jun, mountain Jun, valley Jun, etc., so the word “Ye” has a prominent meaning, and the name “emperor Ye” may be understood as transcendent existence.
To sum up, Dijun is the highest god in the book of mountains and seas, and also the creator God. It is similar to Dihao sacrificed in the Shang Dynasty. This is also the reason why some people think that Dijun and Dihao are the same person, which should be invisible. “All things are created in Tai Yi, transformed into yin and Yang” should be the same existence.
