CHINA: Feng shui

From China, Paul Simon says: "Feng Shui (wind and water) is the ancient Chinese practice of Geomancy, also practiced in Japan and Korea. FS is a pop trend in the US now, but, in my opinion, it is a lot of silliness, and I hope I don't offend any WAISers by saying so. However, I don't worry about where the dragon's back is or how many demons the fishbowl or mirrors will keep out when I set up a home or office. Still, Geomancy is high art in Hong Kong and many real estate developers will consult high-powered (priced) Geomancers when making construction decisions".

RH: I agree with Paul, and he need not worry about offending WAISers, since they must listen to a variety of opinions. That FS is a pop trend in the US is evidence how gullible "we the people" are. From the account of FS in the the Philippines, which started this discussion, clearly much of what passes for FS is not geomancy. Just idiocy.
