Description

The ancient Chinese records tell of a "Place of Ten Suns", where "Ten Suns rose and shone together". The Chinese accounts further call our eastern realm a Fu-Sang (or Helpful Mulberry) land. Like the Mexicans, the Chinese sages declare that there is an enormous Tree—the Fu (or helpful) Sang Tree—in the eastern Mulberry land 3, 000 miles wide. The One true sun is, of course, high above the mountain ranges, or "Branches" of our Continental Mulberry. But the extra Nine are false or delusive and mere reflections of the true sun on fog or vapor. The Chinese account, truly enough, states that they bear wu, and this term stands for "blackness", "inky", or "dark".
