Exploring Feng Shui: A Real-Time Learning Experience

Exploring Feng Shui: A Real-Time Learning Experience

introduces daily feng shui tips to college students, office workers, and anyone who wants to learn how feng shui can enhance their lives. This project uses Web GL technology that runs on any computer with an up-to-date, modern browser. The user flow is a simple four-step process: “listen,” “observe,” “find,” and “solve.” This is how feng shui masters help people figure out their problems. It is an engaging practice because users become actively involved in the whole problem-solving experience. My goal for this project is to present the principles and rules of feng shui philosophy, as well as its applications in modern interior design and to interpret feng shui through creative interactive experience. I wish that by introducing feng shui to a new western audience, they can benefit from learning feng shui theories and improve their living environment.

Ecological Evaluation of Landscape Using Feng-Shui Theory at Shandiz Urban Region, NE Iran

In the left of the cave placed on the Shandiz city is offered to spatial development in the excitation type as commercial exhibitions or other businesses. As a result the table 1 is the compact research outcomes which are applied in the landscape analysis and evaluation. In recent years the Shandiz urban region is prospered of international tourism site which affected on the spatial planning and development on this region. This touristic planning without the sustainable viewpoint is modulated many modern projects of different resorts and mixture land uses in large scale. These plans along the land use changes have resulted to land degradations and natural hazards such as soil erosion and landslides. Therefore it has been necessary to explain of traditional and ecological landscape evaluation in this region and same cases where decreased the impacts of abnormal development. The Feng-shui theory could be shown the sustainable and ecological vision of the study area where the Shandiz city properly developed with preservation of the good green gardens and blue rivers qualities.

Feng Shui: A Comparison of the Original Concept and Its Current Westernized Version

Feng Shui: A Comparison of the Original Concept and Its Current Westernized Version

- Third, everything is changing, which promotes the dynamic signs of living qi. This can be seen through the change of the seasons and, more subjectively, through the changes in our states of mind and emotions. Therefore, it is believed that positively changing the home environment encourages new habits and needs of the inhabitants. In fact, Qi is a cosmic stream that connects the universe, earth, and man together. This reinforces the fact that all things have a spirit that connects everything together. On the same note, qi can also be bad. Master Lin Hui-Tzu emphasizes that qi is divided into auspicious and inauspicious, good or sheng qi and bad or sha qi that comes from the needs of people. By extension, good and bad qi can be delivered by wind and water, which translates to the environmental aspects of Feng Shui. Understanding how qi flows through the environment is essential in Feng Shui. 42

Vastu Shastra And Feng Shui The Ancient Sciences And Their Fusion In Context Of Indian Architecture

Vastu Shastra And Feng Shui The Ancient Sciences And Their Fusion In Context Of Indian Architecture

Feng shui is originated in china around 6000 back. Feng shui is the Ancient Chinese art of living in harmony with the environment. It literally translates into wind and water. Feng shui is often defined as the art of placement because much of it revolves around determining the positive or negative directions for the people, their dwellings, and the relationship between them. The entire philosophy of Feng shui is based on the concept of yin and yang. Chinese believe that creation can always take place only if two forces which are different characteristic interact. We find this to be true statement as all creation in nature takes place due to the interaction of male and female counterpart. It is same in both animal and vegetable kingdom. According to Feng shui, heaven is male and earth is female which represented by yang and yin. The interaction of heaven and earth lead to the formation of wind and water which lies between earth and heaven due to this interaction, a cosmic force created which is called chi. Feng shui, revolve round the philosophy that every building be designed for trapping chi effectively as chi stands for everything in life. This is the same concept of universal life force which is called Reiki by Japanese, it is same as prana of Hindus and it is bio – plasma or bio –energy of west, everything visible in the universe is seen to liberate chi .The health concept of Feng shui nothing but a harmonious balance of yin and yang in human body. This balance is achieved with help of five basic elements; these are wood, fire, earth, metal and water by interacting in various ways.

Feng Shui Practices among Selected Business Establishments In The Chinatown Districts Of Kuala Lumpur, Manila And Singapore: A Comparative Study

Feng Shui Practices among Selected Business Establishments In The Chinatown Districts Of Kuala Lumpur, Manila And Singapore: A Comparative Study

merchant families and their business activities became havens for Chinese intellectuals, scholars, and political exiles. Furthermore, challenges posed by ethnicity issues within the plural and multi-racial societies of Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore further strengthened and entrenched Chinese traditional values and culture within these enclaves. Today, these Chinatowns embody the culture and values of the homeland reflecting the tradition of strong family ties, the humanism of Confucianism, the harmony between man and nature of Taoist philosophy and geomancy, the spirituality of Buddhism, and the importance given to industry and a productivity-oriented work ethic. This study documented and established the dominant use of feng shui, a cultural practice that traces its origins in early Chinese history, among the owners of business establishments located in shophouses within the Chinatowns of Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Singapore. Using descriptive research, the data gathering process started with an ocular survey of selected businesses located in shophouses within the catchment areas of the three Chinatowns to determine whether feng shui was used in these establishments. In the second phase, surveys and interviews were conducted with owners as key informants to determine why feng shui was used in their business establishments. The study documented the fact that like typical business establishments and homes in the homeland, feng shui was used by business establishment owners in the Chinatowns of Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Singapore to bring good health, prosperity, and harmonious family relations.

Architectural Education Adapting to Climate Challenges in Light of Feng Shui

Architectural Education Adapting to Climate Challenges in Light of Feng Shui

Even though natural hazards are beyond human control, rapid development throughout the world has altered the ecological balance and led to “nature’s revenge.” To build a home on the beach, a cultural luxury, not only jeopardizes the fragile coastal eco-system [13] but also places humans in danger during storms. In the U.S., houses in coastal areas are built identically to inland homes, and houses in high-risk regions for tornadoes are constructed similarly to those in low-risk cities. Buildings designed with disregard for wind patterns have repeatedly been destroyed during windstorms. Fisher [7] stated “we designed our way into these disasters, and we can design our way out of them by understanding the nature of our errors. We should not simply repeat them, as we have been doing over and over in recent decades”. These problems in practice reflect the weak points in education. As the products of architects, buildings are responsible for over 40% of pollutant emissions and energy consumption in the world [22], but this fact has escaped the attention of architectural education until the recent decade. Conventional architectural education emphasizes artistic creativity and ignores design constraints and environmental issues. This paper explores a synthesis approach to architectural education in adapting to climate challenges, and emphasizes learning from Chinese vernacular wisdom, precedents, and particularly feng-shui, the traditional Chinese practice used to harmonize people with their environment, which literally translates to “Wind” and “Water.”

Hedonic Prices and House Numbers: The Influence of Feng Shui

Hedonic Prices and House Numbers: The Influence of Feng Shui

Feng shui literally means wind and water, which are the elemental forces of the earth, and are believed to have hidden power to determine the course of events. Feng shui has its roots in the Tao, an ancient Chinese philo sophy analysing the environment and interpreting the “way of nature”. By watching the many cycles of the physical universe, Taoists perceived a rhythm connecting humanity with nature, and developed a system to enhance that connection some 5,000 years ago (Thompson, 1996). According to the Tao, there is order and balance in the world. By living in harmony with the environment—the winds and waters of the earth—individuals can attract good luck and prosperity. Although the system of feng shui is intrinsically linked to the Taoist philosophy, the practical tenets are a complex blend of logical reasoning, common-sense maxims, and oral tradition, some of which are no more substantial than superstitions. The practice of feng shui incorporates ideas of geography, ecology, astrology, aesthetics, psychology and more, and it attempts to ensure a good life through site selection and the arrangement of objects on a site.

Applications of Knowledge-Based Expert Systems to Feng Shui Knowledge

Applications of Knowledge-Based Expert Systems to Feng Shui Knowledge

Abstract—Feng Shui is a traditional Chinese wisdom which aimed at creating a harmony between environment, buildings and people. With a desire to improve the relationship between human and the environment, there is an increasing interest for architects and other building professionals to apply the concepts of Feng Shui in building design and the built environment. While Feng Shui has been practiced in China for more than three thousand years, little research has been done to capture the Feng Shui knowledge in a systematic manner. Knowledge-based expert systems (KBES) approach is one of the artificial intelligent techniques possessing a high potential to deal with intuitive expertise which is appropriate to structure and represent the Feng Shui knowledge. This paper outlines the design and development process of a prototype model of Feng Shui knowledge using knowledge-based expert systems approach.

SCREENING FOR BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE FANG FENG TONG SHEN SAN

SCREENING FOR BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE FANG FENG TONG SHEN SAN

In clinical practice, the original prescription of FFTSS can be modified to focus on certain effects. Jia Wei Fang Feng Tong Sheng Wan, for example, is a modification intended to reduce weight and consequently obesity. These particular effects are aligned perfectly with the anti-diabetic effect of FFTSS as obesity often is a condition of diabetic patients. The later property is basically due to the inhibition of α-glucosidase that will reduce the sugar absorption and ultimately lead to weight reduction. The broad clinical applications of FFTSS require a systematic study to understand such clinical indications. The panel of biological activities tested in this paper will help to determine the effectiveness, role and possible mechanisms of action of FFTSS in Traditional Chinese Medicine. These data of FFTSS are of great interest and will guarantee the propagation of Chinese Medicine to the world.

Activation of amygdala opioid receptors by electroacupuncture of Feng Chi (GB20) acupoints exacerbates focal epilepsy

Activation of amygdala opioid receptors by electroacupuncture of Feng Chi (GB20) acupoints exacerbates focal epilepsy

mechanism and to prove the clinical action. Epilepsy is one of the most common and devastating neurological disorders. About seventy percent of patients with epilepsy can be well-controlled with currently available anti- epileptic drugs (AEDs), but seizures still persist in 30% of epilepsy patients who do not respond to any of two to three first-line AEDs despite administration of the carefully optimized drug treatment [3]. Alternative therap- ies, such as vagus nerve stimulation [4,5], deep brain stimulation (DBS) [6] and acupuncture [7,8], have been considered for treating refractory epilepsy. Several reports demonstrate that acupuncture may suppress seizure activity through the activation of vagus nerve, which sub- sequently activates the nucleus of tractus solitarius (NTS) [7,8]. Our previous results demonstrate that EA stimula- tion of bilateral Anmian (EX17) acupoints enhances sleep through the activation of opioid receptors in the NTS [9,10]. Feng-Chi acupoint is anatomically close to the Anmain acupoint. It has been shown that amygdala receives the afferent projection from the NTS [11,12]. Altering the NTS activity changes dynorphin gene expres- sion in the amygdala [13]. Therefore, stimulation of Feng- Chi acupoints may activate vagus nerve and subsequently modify the opioid receptors in the amygdala to achieve its effect in suppressing focal epilepsy. This study was designed to elucidate the effect of high-frequency (100 Hz) EA stimulation of Feng-Chi acupoints in an animal model of focal epilepsy by administering pilocar- pine into the left central nucleus of amygdala (CeA).

Simplified Simulation Method for Flood-Induced Bend Scour—A Case Study Near the Shuideliaw Embankment on the Cho-Shui River

Simplified Simulation Method for Flood-Induced Bend Scour—A Case Study Near the Shuideliaw Embankment on the Cho-Shui River

Abstract: The modeling of flood-induced bend scour near embankment toes can provide important information for river engineering, embankment safety warnings, and emergency action management. During the rainy seasons, short-term general scour and bend scour are the most common causes for the failure of reinforced concrete embankments in Taiwan. To gain a deeper understanding of the scouring process near levee foundations, this study proposed a straightforward and practical method for bend scour simulation. The proposed simulation method is subdivided into three stages: two-dimensional flow simulation, general scour estimation, and bend scour estimation. A new bend-scour computation equation is proposed and incorporated into a two-dimensional hydraulic finite-volume model for simulating the evolution of bend scour depth around embankment toes. The proposed method is applied to simulate the temporal evolution of bend scouring near the Shuideliaw Embankment on the Cho-Shui River in Taiwan, where serious failure occurred during the June 2012 monsoon. Field data were gathered using the numbered-brick technique at the Shuideliaw Embankment to demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed method. The results of the bend scour simulations compared reasonably well with field measurements, indicating close agreement in terms of water levels and bend scour depths near the Shuideliaw Embankment. The proposed method was found to quickly estimate the maximum short-term general scour and bend scour depths for further enhancement of the safety of the embankment toe.
