What is mind?
Where is my mind?
Throughout history, many philosophers and scientists all over the world have discussed the relationship between mind and brain.
The concept of mind is understood in many different ways by many different cultural and religious traditions.
In particular, the concept of mind of the Japanese Shinto is very unique.
However, the cosmic view of Shinto is not well known outside Japan.
So, I would like introduce the amazing structure of mind revealed by Japanese Shinto and the greatest psychic of Japan.

- 2 The Truth of the Revelation from God
- 3 The Mathematical Model of the Spirit World
- 4 The Explanation of Collective Unconscious According to Shinto Philosophy
- 5 The Principle of Success Taking Advantage of the Power of the Unconscious Mind
The Structure of the Mind According to Japanese Shinto Philosophy
According to Japanese Shinto Philosophy, it is considered that the universe has different kinds of worlds depending on the degree of spirituality (immateriality).
In this multiverse model, a physical element in this world has its corresponding spiritual element in each world with different degree of spirituality (See Fig.1).
Fig.1 The structure of human mind according to Shinto Philosophy
In the above Figure 1, the base of a cone corresponds to the physical world (S=0) which consists of 4-dimensional space-time (X, Y, Z and T).
However, according to Shinto Philosophy, it is considered that there is a 5th dimension in the universe.
In the above Figure.1, the vertical axis (S-axis) of the cone shows the 5th dimension.
The 5th dimension corresponds to the spiritual scale.
As S approaches 1, the degree of the spirituality (immateriality) approaches 100% (the fully spiritual state).
On the other hand, as S approaches 0, the degree of the spirituality (immateriality) approaches 0% (the fully physical state).
Hitsuki Shinji, the final revelation of God, indicates the existence of the 5th dimension.

As shown in the above Figure.1, Alice has a body in the physical world (S=0), but she also has different stages of minds depending on the degree of spirituality.
As the degree of spirituality “S” approaches 1 (100%), Alice’s mind becomes more deep and subconscious.
The higher level of mind having the high degree of spirituality is often called as “higher self.”
The Truth of the Revelation from God
According to Eastern spiritualism, such a higher level of mind also appears as a kind of sprit guide.
Thus, it is considered that your spirit guide is higher yourself living in the higher level of the spirit world.
A higher level of your mind (higher yourself, hereafter) sometimes gives you various inspirations to guide you properly.
If you receive an inspiration from higher yourself belonging to the very high level of the spirit world, you may regard such an inspiration as a revelation from God.
The Mathematical Model of the Spirit World
Onisaburo Deguchi (1871-1948), the greatest psychic and philosopher in Japan once said,
If an event occurred in the spirit world, the same event will also occur in the physical world.
Onisaburo Deguchi (1871-1948).
Mathematically describing the above Onisaburo’s philosophy, each element is born in the full spiritual state (S = 1) at first.
Then the element will transfer toward the full material state (S = 0) (See Fig.2).
Fig.2 The Mathematical Model of “Law of Transfer” According to Onisaburo.
Onisaburo called such a transition from the full spiritual state (S = 1) to the full material state (S = 0) as
Law of Transfer
Law of Reflection
The Law of Transfer is a kind of spiritual law, which corresponds to the natural law in the physical world.
Just as time flows from the past to the future, the spiritual state transfers from the full spiritual state (S=1) to the full material state (S=0).
Therefore, there is a time gap between the occurrence of an event in the spirit world (S = 1) and the occurrence of the corresponding event in the physical world (S = 0).
In other words, higher yourself can know an event happening in the spirit world, before you know the corresponding event which will happen in this physical world.
This explains the reason why prophets can know the future in advance and divine revelations have been prophetic.
The Explanation of Collective Unconscious According to Shinto Philosophy
Furthermore, in the above Shinto multiverse model, Alice’s mind and another person’s mind (e.g. Bob’s mind) share the same origin at the highest level of the sprit world (See Fig.3).
Fig.3 Alice’s mind and Bob’s mind share the same origin at the highest level of the sprit world.
This explains the structure of the unconscious mind, such as collective unconscious.
A Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Carl Jung considered that the collective unconscious are shared among beings of the same species.
Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961)
Furthermore, in Shinto Philosophy, it is considered that there is no time and space in the spirit world, which is shown in Hitsuki Shinji, the final revelation of God.
In this regard, Onisaburo explains as follows.
There is no sense of time in the spirit world, because it is beyond the time and space.
Therefore, an event, which I saw in the spirit world with second sight, may appear a few days later, 10 years later, or several hundred years later in the real world.
In some cases, I may also see an event from hundreds or thousands of years ago.
When I see events in the spirit world, those events come into my second sight uniformly and in parallel, without any distinction of time and space, light and dark, up and down, small and large, broad and narrow, and so on.
Therefore, even if Alice’s body and Bob’s body are located far away from each other, their deep minds of the higher level of spirituality share the same origin (collective unconscious).
This explains Synchronicity, a concept first introduced by Jung, which holds that events are “meaningful coincidences” if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related.
The Principle of Success Taking Advantage of the Power of the Unconscious Mind
As discussed above, your body and lower mind are greatly influenced by higher levels of your minds (higher yourselves).
In other words, your body and lower mind depend on higher yourselves.
In other words, if higher yourself succeed in the sprit world, you will also succeed in the physical world, because what happened to higher yourself in the spirit world will also happen to you in the physical world in accordance with the Law of Transfer.
Therefore, if you want to succeed, you should pray for the success of higher yourself as an unconscious mind first of all.
If higher yourself succeeds in higher level of the spirit world, he (or she) will provide you with useful inspirations so that you could succeed in the physical world.
This explains the well known principle of modern personal development and self-improvement taking advantage of the power of the subconscious mind, as seen in the Napoleon Hill’s best-selling book Think and Grow Rich.
Napoleon Hill (1883-1970)
This is the basic principle of success taking advantage of the unconscious mind.
As described above, the theory of mind according to Shinto Philosophy is very simple, but it is a working theory which can explain many mental phenomena.
Furthermore, using the above mathematical model of Shinto multiverse, we can explain well various unsolved spiritual phenomena.
Some day, the time may come when the structure of mind will be revealed, which is clearly predicted in Hitsuki Shinji, the final revelation of God.
