Re: To Add To The Theory That The SO6P is an Uzumaki
Oh Jesus.... that is an awesome idea, though...

We only know that the Uzumaki and Senju are relatives. The common assumption is that the Senju predate the Uzumaki - but I'm not so sure this is the case.

Through the Taoist-based arts of the Hyuga - he was among the first to atain a "sage" status and fought on parallel with the Ten Tails. The Rinnegan is, actually, not the source of his "learn every jutsu" ability (that lay within the abilities of a "sage" utilizing the gentle fist arts to twist raw nature chakra into elemental forms) - and the Rinnegan was attained when the sage achieved a form of personal enlightenment (and it is not necessarily a blood line ability). Within him - the mutations for both the Senju (his younger son) and the Sharingan (his elder son) took place.
These mutations could have been driven by absorbtion of the Ten Tails - or plot-no-jutsu.
Though it's also possible that his wife was a Hyuga and he learned the original "sage mode" from training with a higher form of Byakugan user (having the characteristics I described - rather than being able to use the "gentle fist" to control the flow of chakra within an opponent - a Hyuga can do that to the nature chakra around him/herself). He, himself, was simply an Uzumaki. Though this does leave the question of how he gained his reported ability to manipulate all nature elements (as we have not seen this with the Rinnegan - despite it being one of the alleged key benefits to having the rinnegan; leading me to doubt the Rinnegan grants this ability).
Which... the longer the story goes - the more I'm beginning to suspect this to be the case. Kishimoto has been -quiet- on the Hyuga - yet Hinata is always placed right at his side during critical moments of plot and character development for Naruto (see my thread about the inherent Taoist themes governing the relationship between the two). For a side character - she's coming out of nowhere to steal the thunder typically reserved for the lead heroine.
Call me crazy - but I think we're going to find out that the Hyuga have a history with the Sage, and Hinata is their part of the repeated cycle along with Naruto.
