ANCIENT MASTERS KNEW
SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF FENG SHUI ENERGIES:
SECRETS OF THE YIN YANG SYMBOL

Prof. Dr. Ong Hean-Tatt 15th January 2008

Introduction

It is foolish to think that the ancient masters never know what are qi and sha. It is because we like to think they were more stupid than us today!

You should find out what exactly the ancient masters knew are the Feng Shui energies.


Ancients Measured Solar Radiation with Gnomon Stick

This evolution of the Tao into the eight trigrams is described by Confucius, circa 600 BC, in his Shou Kua commentary in the King Wen I Ching. This evolution of the Tao into the eight trigrams can now be scientifically explained!

In ancient times, both Chinese geomancers and astrologers used the gnomon stick to determine the variations of the solar shadow (and thus solar energy) and from this they determine the directions. They also measured the variations of the solar shadow through the seasons to track the variations of qi throughout the year.


Variations of solar shadow through the seasons form the famous Yin Yang symbol! The 4 dark spots denote the Summer and Winter Solstices and Spring and Autumn Equinoxes positions


The ancient records described how they measured the solar shadow with the gnomon stick:

  • They even divided the year's cycle into 24 Segments…They used six concentric circles, marked the 24-Segment points, divided the circles into 24 sectors and recorded the length of shadow every day. The shortest shadow is found on the day of Summer Solstice. The longest shadow is found on the day of Winter Solstice. After connecting each lines and dimming Yin Part from Summer Solstice to Winter Solstice, the Sun chart looks like [Figure on left]. (Allen Tsai, 1999)


Seasonal Variations in Solar Radiation Basis of Qi

Recognise this very important scientific finding:

  • The seasonal variation in the solar shadow will actually form the symbol of the Yin Yang. The Yin Yang is a measurement of the solar based variation of qi throughout the year!

  • This is also a secret of the mysterious megaliths scattered throughout Europe, the Middle East and the parts of the world. They tried to track the time fluctuations of energy flows through measuring the movements of the Sun and the stars. Some of these megaliths tried to focus the energies to spots used for sacred rituals. Areas where energies are focused are actually equivalent to the Ming Tang (Bright Hall) of Feng Shui.

The 24 segments are the "24 Mountains" common in San Yuan Feng Shui. The ancient Confucius' documents only describe evolution of the Tao into the 8 trigrams. The evolution of the 64 hexagrams from the 8 trigrams came later.


8 Trigrams of Bagua are actually 8 Seasonal Packages of Solar Energies!

The 24 segments are the "24 Mountains" common in San Yuan Feng Shui. The ancient Confucius' documents only describe evolution of the Tao into the 8 trigrams. The evolution of the 64 hexagrams from the 8 trigrams came later.

These measurements of the solar shadow were also made in ancient times as far back as the Chou dynasty to track the variations of qi, the energy invoked in both astrology and Feng Shui:

  • "In 655 BC it is reported that the Duke of Lu went up to the Divine Terrace to observe the Ch'i at the equinoxes, solstices, and the beginning of the four seasons." (Walters 1987 p.238).

    In its earliest perspective, qi referred to some physically visible atmospheric aura or impression. Duke of Lu's equinoxes, solstices & beginning of 4 seasons are the 8 directions of Bagua.

The well known evolution of the Primordial Monad or Tao into the 8 trigrams is thus the step by step description of these variations of the solar shadow and energy through the seasons.


Negative Ions form major natural component of Qi

Qi is something physical connected to the variation of the Sun's energies through the seasons. Dr Ong's research indicates that a major portion of qi is really the negative ions formed by the transformation of the solar energy (shen) by green plants. Other components of qi may include electromagnetic waves.

In contrast, positive ions are the major natural component of sha. 60% of the positive ions in Nature are radioactive, adding a second threat from radioacitivity.

Scientific evidence shows how the natural fluctuations in negative ions and electromagnetism affect hormonal production in a wide range of life, including during the foetal stages. Astronomical movements can affect the natural levels of these ions and electromagnetism, and changes affected during the foetal stages will have far ranging effects into the adult life. That is how astrology and Feng Shui works!


So You Think You Are Cleverer than the Ancient Masters?

The ancient masters were more advance than us today! They obviously knew the scientific basis of the Feng Shui and astrology so many modern practitioners like to believe they are expert in. Yet, the modern masters can hardly explain what are the real mechanisms of both Feng Shui and astrology and fall back on a near superstitious approach .

The modern practitioners make a serious error in thinking the ancients did not know the scientific basis of their arts. It is high time for them to re-study the ancient lores and texts.

AMAZING SCIENTIFIC NATURE OF FENG SHUI ENERGIES

The amazing thing is that back in Yang Yun Sun's time in AD880 and even Confucius' time in 600 BC, they knew what were the scientific physical nature of the Feng Shui energies! Find out what they knew, here.
