Don’t Be Stupid, Be A Smarty
In Japanese Folklore, when an object turns 100, it comes alive and self-aware!
Tsukumogami is understood by many Western scholars, for the most part. It was a concept that was highly popular in Japanese folklore as far back as the tenth century, used while spreading Shingon Buddhism.
Tsukumogami objects are often considered to be harmless, and would occasionally play pranks on humans. However, according to legend, these objects would also have the capacity for anger and would sometimes band together (with other objects) and take revenge upon those who were wasteful and threw them away!
To prevent these animate objects from resenting mankind, to this day, ceremonies are performed to console items that are broken and considered unusable.
