Why would the Sage of the Six Paths create a stone tablet that can only be read by the Sharingan and Rennigan? Why would he create the the tablets even though he supposedly had a son (that he favored) with no ocular powers whatsoever? Wouldn't this put the son at a disadvantage? ANd why would it be created so that it can be read only by the Sharingan and Rinnigan? Supposedly, the Sharingan didn't exist during the Sage's time. It could be a byproduct of the Sharingan's ability that allows a user to read the tablets but, if so wouldn't other ocular jutsu be able to read it to some degree? They are all descendants of the Rinnegan after all. Or, did someone other the the Sag write the tablets (his son and their descendants)? It just stands to reason if the Sage made the tablets only for ocular jutsu he would have made something similar for his son without the ocular powers (that can only be utilized by non ocular users).
Thanks to everyone for making this post enjoyable.
I wanted to know your thoughts on the Stone
Tablets, why they (supposedly) can only be read by
Sharingan(different levels) and the Rinnegan. And
if the Sage did write it why leave it so his
favored Son cannot read it. I have seen a lot of
different theories to my questions and I
appreciate everyone of them. Some of them made
sense to me and some didnt but are no less
enjoyable. They all bring up different lines of
thinking and many questions to some issues.
P.S. Just for clarification I am not
saying that all Ninja descend from the Sage but I
was theorizing that the Rinnegan and the Sharingan
were descended from him.
@JuniorUchiha : Amaterasu really has a property
which never dies until the target dies.But
didn't you wonder why Madara only specified
Sharingan who can summon Susanoo is rare and
didn't even mention about the Amaterasu?
Seems to me that Amaterasu was really
designed/created to have the right eye to have the
power to extinguish as shown by Itachi himself
before transplanting it to Sasuke.Its like a lock
is made with a key. Sasuke was just surprised to
known that he was also capable of extinguishing
Amaterasu with his Mangekyou.
It may be because most parents love their kids and
he knows his successor is and his descendants are
going to be very powerful and he doesnt want just
his successors side ruling he wants them to live
in harmony so he gives the other a tablet with the
secrets of the other descendants ocular power so
they are on par with the other descendants cause
without many would not be able know how to use the
sharingan, ms, or rinnegan for that matter its
showing equal love for both sons theoretically
But Itachi can summon the Susanoo, why
couldn't he just use Itachi instead of
Saskue? He could of ezily went into itachis mind
and make him evil. Itachi is way stronger with
mangenkyo then saskue iz, why not choose him. See
what im getting at:Why is saskue so
"special" even though itachi is better?
@JuniorUchiha : Itachi mentioned to Naruto that
Sasuke is still "pure" and can be easily
tainted. Madara said Itachi is such an eyesore to
him. it simply means that Madara can't
manipulate Itachi as he wants while Sasuke can be
easily be brainwashed.
Madara's Eternal Mangekyou's
power/jutsu's and limits aren't
clear/revealed yet. Madara is not using his
Mangekyou/ Eternal Mangekyou to manipulate people.
He is simply using persuasive statements as shown
when he manipulates Sasuke and Nagato. And AFAIK,
it is Uchiha Shisui who is capable of using his
Sharingan to "mind control". Even Madara
was interested in getting Shisui's eye from
Danzo but it was crushed by the reverse sealing
jutsu by Danzo. In that instance, i can say that
Madara is not capable of "mind control"
using his Sharingan coz if he does he won't
be interested with Shisui's eyes powers. Itachi has a strong will and attachment with
Konoha that's why he wasn't fully
manipulated by Madara. He even foreseen the plan
of Madara manipulating his brother Sasuke to turn
against Konoha that's why he took a step to
counter it by talking and giving Naruto a jutsu to
use when the time comes that Sasuke threatens
