Strictly speaking it could be quite possible for The Sage to have made the tablet , after all what comes after EMS is Rinnegan , but only when Senju is present , i doubt even with all his wisdom , he could have forseen how Madara would end up doing it. The Sage probably expected for the tablet to guide his real successor , not the demented and twisted uchiha's(who might have stolen or just found the tablet and because their sharingan could read some bits , thought it was theirs to begin with).
The Tablet had to have been written by the sage himself. I see the tablet as a ode to alchemy (both the fictional and actual artforms) showing that all is one and one is all. Madara being a descendant of the One, had its power within himself and after realizing the Truth he wanted to return back to being one unified being (very akin to Homunculus and his plan).
I think the Sage and Madara could have written the tablet in order to give information. Madara probably wanted to leave the Uchiha with information on how to control the Kyuubi while the Sage probably wanted the Uchiha to know how to unlock the Rinnegan if need be... maybe the Senju as well and have them work together.
Or the elder son. Could have been a plan for the elder son to make the Uchiha get Rinnegan so they could start winning the war.
If that would had been the case, senju would have known that such a tablet exists, but madara specifically stated at the time of coalition that hashi was the first one to see it and know of its existence. Therefore, most probably it was made by the elder son
But what if the elder son hid it before the younger son knew about it, or it wasn't passed down or stopped being passed down as an info in the Senju line? If the Uchiha hid it and Senju couldn't find it, they'd probably think the tablet could have been fake or a myth.
But what if for some reason he wasn't able to? Though honestly, I think you're more right here that the Sage may not have had a hand in the tablet.
Firstly, the tablet has nothing to do with him being able to released Edo tensei, im sure this had more to do with him knowing tobirama in person.
Secondly, With what madara read on the tablet the it spoke of 2 halves becoming one to create perfect harmony, This is what he told hashirama. This is not all that is on the tablet, the rest is untold but it can be assumed that 2 other things were on it. Read by Eternal Mangekyou
1. The knowledge of senju and uchiha powers and the combination of them, Ultimately leading to rinnegan (not sure if it said it would create rinnegan but im sure it spoke of the 2 powers)
2. the knowledge of the Juubi being split into many forms.
How do i know this?
Well, after reading this he proceeded to come after hashirama and fight him in order to obtain his cells, also the thing he told hashirama that was on the stone also metaphorically links to the Senju/Uchiha and their bond from the rikudou.
The bijuu part? Theres a scene a few chaps before bijuu mode occurs with the nine tails thinking back on what humans said to him, Madara, Hashirama, Mito, Kushina Etc.
What madara says is. Kyuubi you are only a piece of your former self.
So we know that he knew about the juubi/kyuubi before awakening the rinnegan. But there is still information to read after obtaining the rinnegan. Whats after?
Well ill tell you what i think the Tablet says each 4 parts of it.
Sharingan View - Killing one close to you or killing a loved one, creates a change in the eyes, the Mangekyou
Mangekyou View - These eyes lose their light over time, but with another source they will have a newfound light forever.
Eternal Mangekyou View - Uchiha/Senju info, along with juubi information.
Rinnegan View - Juubis Shell Location how to summon, and any information unknown juubi related.
Didn't it mention somehwere in the manga that the tablet WAS written by the sage? I honestly can't remember. I also remember a section in the manga where both Madara and Hashirama were standing infront of the tablet talking casually. Again, just a faint memory.
But then again, maybe that tablet was indeed left by rikudou to his eldest son. As you know, maybe when he's dying, he divided his treasures/scroll/money to his two sons. The eldest got the tablet and the youngest got the money/palace/the throne/scroll. Maybe that's the reason why the eldest want to kill his younger brother, because their father isn't fair with his last will and testament.
if I remember right...madara said this to kurama the first time he summoned him.so in hind sight,madara knew what/how kurama came about before he even summoned him.it would make no sense if it took EMS to summon/control kurama,when obito did it without it....Quote:
It seems that Sharingan is one of the two requirements needed to control the Kyuubi. ANother one is having an exceptionally strong chakra, which Madara already had and which Tobi had when he received Hashirama's DNA. Or it could be strong eyes? NOt sure if Sasuke could control the Kyuubi since he's said to have strong eyes, but despite Itachi's expertise in genjutsu, he wouldn't be able to control the Kyuubi. Not for long anyway.
Though, maybe the Mangekyo provides a more powerful genjutsu. Tsukuyomi and Komoamatsukami could be strong enough to control the Kyuubi, which is why the tablet said Mangekyo controls the Kyuubi at a price. Or can control the Kyuubi.
Huh, just posted about this last week:

Despite how everyone else in the world talks about Uchiha and especially Madara, Kurama remarked about the potency of Sasuke's malicious chakra, not his eyes. Now I'm thinking it really is the chakra that matters in controlling a beast. Tangentially, I REALLY want to know wtf those chains are. Gyuuki said they were a jutsu of the Outer Path, but that wouldn't make any sense for Kushina to have a Gedo jutsu.
