You have heard them, those Feng Shui sayings about T-junctions, unfavourable water courses, and "poison arrows".
There is a quaint modern "common sense" explanation for the bad luck associated with T-junctions. The oncoming road is called a "poison arrow" going straiht into the house directly in its path. It is said that houses located at the T-junctions facing the oncoming roads would be prone to lights from cars shining into the houses. Only, when Feng Shui mentioned the bad luck of T-junctions logn ago, there were no cars!
Another common sense view is that T-junctions are places where accidents are most likely to occur. And therefore disturb the peace of the occupants living at the T-junctions. The accidents would not be restricted to modern cars but also ancient horse riding etc. Well and fine. However, the Feng Shui saying is that it is the house which faces the oncoming road which would have bad luck, not the other houses by the sides. Accidents should disturb virtually all those houses cluttered around the T-junctions, not just the one facing the oncoming roads.
The truth about how T-junctions and their likes produce bad
Feng Shui is now explained below.
Underground Water Produces Weak Electromagnetic Fields
For some time, Westerners geomancers are aware that underground waters have adverse effects on living things above them. They have seen that, in certain locations, livestocks would be uneasy or ill. When the geomancers used the water dowsing they found that underneath the locations were streams of underground waters.
If a sensitive electromagnetic meter was used the geomancers could detect a faint electromagnetic field. This weak electromagnetic field is created by the underground water passing through the soil particles. The interactions of the soil particles and the water generate a weak electromagnetic force.
There is a tendency for the interactions of the
underground water with the soil particles to produce positive
ions. These positive ions are harmful to life. Hence,
there is a tendency for plants to be sickly above the
Harmful Gamma Radiations
What is even worse is that sensitive scintillators had also detected faint gamma radiations from underground waters. The gamma radiations would further harm living things and cause planmts above them to be injured. It appears that the underground waters could have passed through radioactive soil particles deep below and come to the surface and emit the gamma radiations.
Western geomancers had accumulated evidence that in some
Western cities, high incidences of cancer were often located
above underground waters or faultlines. The faultlines are
cracks in the earth surfaces, apparently allowing radiations
from beneath to seep above.
"Water Dragon Classic"
The "Water Dragon Classic" is a well known ancient Chinese Feng Shui document showing the auspicious and inauspicious water courses. People are exhorted not to live in houses by unfavourable water courses, which more than often, are straight courses. Auspicious water courses are highly meandering.
Both the "bad" straight water and "good" water courses have junctions. T-junctions are not the distinguishing signs of "bad" water courses. It is the straightness which renders the water course inauspicious.
A little bit of thinking will alert one to the fact that straigth water courses are those underlaid by faultlines. Faultlines would be where a mass of rock jut out from another and the faultlines are usually very straight. Being cracks in the earth surfaces, faultlines would be lines where radiations would seep through.
Hence, the corridors of the straight water courses are corridors of dangerous radiations. Not inconsequently, living things would be harmed if they linger too long in such corridors.
Meandering rivers are free from faultlines and hence do not
suffer from dangerous radiations.
Cross Junctions and Allied Places
Western geomancers are aware that the underground water current generates a weak electromagnetic field, positive ions and even gamma radiation. When two underground water currents cross each other, the location is particularly susceptible to strikes by lightning. Not only that. The Western geomancers pointed out that such locations also tended to be associated with sightings of "ghosts" and even UFOs.
In the natural terrain if there is a straigth path that path
is likely above an underground water or a faultline. Such a
straight path would be dangerous, and would dubbed as "haunted"
or a "fairy path".
Modern Perspectives vis Feng Shui
A great part of Feng Shui effects are due to the effects of underground waters in producing weak el;ectromagnetic forces, positive ions and even radioactive radiations. The well known Feng Shui "Water Dragon Classic" is based on these underground waters effects. Large trees and rock formations interact with effects of such underground waters to produce a range of Feng Shui effects. Rocks and rock artifacts like pillars and pagodas are Feng Shui devices to modify the ill-known underground water effects.
