''Taishôgeki'' is the name of a philosophy and corresponding book, written by a powerful historical figure of Aqualon. He had spent time in the realm of the Aesir and bested them in combat, traveling through the Great Land afterwards to seek wisdom in many places, speaking to many philosophers and mages of his time. Before writing the book, he fought one of the Valkyries on top of the tallest peak of the Yamato Mountain Range and bested her, and as the legend goes, he ripped her soul out of her shattered body, and forged it into a great, metal gate that connected the physical world and the Great Clockwork on top of that mountain, where he had a monastery built to uphold his teachings.The symbol of Taishôgeki is a chart of the inner world and the Great Clockwork. In its cores lie 3 truths: Reality, Origin, and Existence, and from there on stretch five paths. It shows the five aspects of human existence to each point of the star, and between the points the energy associated with the inner gates. Beyond that, within the rings, lie the five elements, representing their corresponding ur-souls.
