A set of different characters that the ancient Japanese might use./古代日本人が使っていたかもしれない文字

Interestingly enough, there was a set of different characters called “Woshite” before using Kanji. 
A history book “Hotsumatsutae” was written by the Woshite characters.
According to Mr. Ikeda Mitsuru, a Record of Ancient Matters, “Kojiki”(710A.D.), and Chronicles of Japan,”Nihonshoki”(720A.D.), which were known as the oldest history books in Japan, were compiled based on the original work “Hotsumatsutae”.
This theory has not officially approved yet.
The period after these history books were compiled is only around 1,300 years compared to the long Jomon period from 14,000 B.C. to 1,000 B.C. 
Moreover, we know there are many tribes who didn’t need characters in the world.

Don’t you feel a sense of mystery when we imagine that the ancient Japanese people would have used other characters before using kanji?
