These neighbors are inevitable in world: their living space can hardly afford food and shelter, their ancestors mostly live on subsidies, their pedigrees are almost all fabricated, and their social status can only be limited. , is a subordinate.
Because they are pathetic but also hateful: they take a Coke bottle as a treasure, but insist on asking neighbors because they like design on bottle, so they even want to take Coke from other people house for themselves, and even apply for a "patent".
This is our good neighbor China - Korea with inscription "Best Cola" on national flag!Yin Yang Fish Diagram
In early 2009, Korean friends went to Wudang Mountain in China. Admiring beauty of "World No. 1 Immortal Mountain and Blessed Land", they saw Yin-Yang Fish Image "Taoist Holy Land" Big tourists were extremely irritated, stamped their feet and beat their chests.
They stated: "It turns out China's Wudang Mountains actually stole our country's national flag as a badge!"
It was Shenyi Gate incident that caused a lot of backlash later.
Later, Korean friends refused to leave it and turned to Internet to publish it, which caused a lot of noise. At this time, some Korean scholars came forward and proposed "Apply Mount Wudang and Taiji map to World Heritage" strongly>, and quickly won support of people of country.
As a result, heated debates about protection of cultural property continue to this day. The ignorance, delusion and lust for power of some people in South Korea has also opened eyes of all Chinese people.
They may not know that Wudang Mountain is one of origins of Taoism. And Taoism, at origins of Chinese humanities. Judging only from written sources, it can be traced back to ancient Yanhuang period, which was five thousand years ago.
As for nondescript red and blue patterns and hexagrams on their national flags, in fact, they are also taken from Book of Changes and Yin-Yang Fish Tai Chi chart that we have had since ancient times. .
How can we take away long-standing and well-established national culture of our country from them?first map of China
Map of Taiji, also known as"the first map of China".
From pavilions of Taoism to pillars of temples of Confucius and Mencius, from martial arts of kung fu to feng shui of traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi diagrams are vividly displayed on them. Even fortune-tellers who set up fortune-telling booths and Western scholars new to China know whole story "Taiji creates heaven and earth, and Sanyuan destroys prosperity".
The Book of Changes says that "the river makes pictures and Luo makes books". Hetu Luoshu is origin of Chinese civilization, as well as basis of Yin Yang and Five Elements arithmetic. And "Yin-Yang Fish Tai Chi Chart" was originally called "Innate Map" or "He Tu".
If traced back to original source, his appearance is actually earlier than Book of Changes, earlier than records, and even more than four thousand years earlier than Taoist teacher Laozi.
For example, colorful pottery pot discovered by Shaanxi Mo Yun Taiji had a pattern of "Ancient Shuanglong Taiji". for a long time, six thousand five hundred years. At that time, Korean Peninsula was still in prehistoric and wild era when agriculture began.
The concept of "yin and yang" originated among people and formed similar images and symbols in different regions and cultures. However, in ancient and modern times, only my country received "Yin Yang Fish".
This is an ancient Chinese philosophy that seems simple and straightforward, but is actually profound.
From rise of Three Emperors and Five Emperors to theory of Laozhuang and Zhuangzi, and then to emergence of Taoism, which was considered "national religion" during prosperous Tang Dynasty, it lasted for thousands years and experienced. Thanks to wisdom of countless sages and scientists, it is now a great achievement of Eastern culture, known throughout world and stunning ancient and modern.
From philosophical dialectics "one life is two, two is three, three is all" to "Tai chi generates two forms, four images generate gossip". > , Taoist culture has gradually approached national economy and people's livelihood from mysterious subject related to all things in nature, and has become a well-known common sense in Chinese society.
Among existing archaeological documents, earliest depiction of "Yin-Yang fish" comes from book Yi Xuan written by scholars of Southern Song Dynasty. At time, North Korea didn't even know "what is a national flag".Which flag belongs
Don't say that patterns on flag of South Korea come from our antiquity, in fact even their current national flag was designed by Chinese.
Initially, there was no flag on Korean peninsula until 1875 when Japanese invaded Korea in what is known in history as "Unyang Incident". As a result, gates of country were opened by cannons, and North Koreans had to determine their affiliation, so they had idea to make a national flag.
Since Yuan Dynasty, China has been suzerain of North Korea. Although Qing Dynasty at that time was poor and weak and could not take care of itself, but younger brother was bullied, older brother still had to show his face.
The Japanese were extremely vicious and eager for colonization and negotiations. The North Korean ambassadors obediently walked. Halfway through, they suddenly remembered: their country doesn't even have a national flag!
What should I do?
North Korean rulers and ministers had no choice but to invite an envoy from Qing Dynasty. The envoy suggested that North Korea "play on side of overlord and use dragon flag as national flag".Just Qing flag was copied for use of dependent countries. The golden dragon with claws should be replaced with four claws, and that's all just a pretense to appear.
As a result, Qing government became furious and rejected it, deeming vassal state unworthy of using dragon flag, so matter was left alone.
In a few years, North Korea will sign an unequal treaty with United States and other countries. During signing ceremony, you need to fire cannons and raise flag, so they invited our envoys to express their ideas.
At time, Ma Jianzhong, North Korea's counterinsurgency minister, suggested, "Because there are eight paths in North Korea that match number of eight trigrams in Taiji chart, it's better to use half red and half black yin and yang in center and all black Gossip outside, why?”
Thus, this emergency gossip flag became rudimentary form of South Korean taegeuk flag. At that time, all foreign services used this flag, and it was announced throughout country that it had officially become national flag.
North Korea later changed its name to Taehan Empire, and Taegeuk flag became a symbol of popular resistance to Japanese colonization and is still passed down to this day.
After country's independence, after several revisions by "Correction Committee", four hexagrams in gossip were removed and color of tai chi was changed to red and blue, with white as base, to form current standard style.
However, what is surprising is that they never acknowledged this past history, but insisted that Taiji Yinyang and Eight Diagrams were created by themselves, which is completely in line with their own culture of Korean nation.Culture War
By way, China and South Korea live next to each other, and their cultural roots can be considered same. However, in uninterrupted historical stream, we have become divided into different customs and national characters.
Besides Taiji Bagua and Wudang Mountain, they also had disputes with us about hanfu costumes, Dragon Boat Festival festivals, and even Northeast folklore < strong> strong>"Fire Kahn" dispute.
It's hard to imagine that before a foreign country belonged to country, and children followed crowd, and now it has become so ugly and ugly, with an arrogant attitude.
Korean arrogance and xenophobia seems to be at heart of cultural dispute between two countries.
They went black and white, right and wrong, forgot their overlord in their codes, and set a flag without knowing its meaning.
Perhaps we should learn from this: as a vast nation passed down from generation to generation for millennia, we must figure out where national cohesion and centripetal strength go and unify our own culture.
Not to be greedy, not to plagiarize, to be able to inherit and create is pride of country.
