Feng Shui Research (2) - Logic and Common Sense

Continuo a compartilhar a serie sobre Feng Shui do blog de Master Yu.

Even though Feng Shui is not science, the theory goes through the same steps as science theories are developed. It begins with undefined terms and principles. The theories are then developed logically. 

Many years ago, a client asked me, "What is the most basic principle in Feng Shui?" 

I said, "Whatever beautiful is a source of Sheng Qi."

The client said, "Isn't it just common sense?"

"Exactly," I said, "If something goes against our common sense, it is nonsence and Feng Shui is not nonsense."

If a Feng Shui practitioner claims that he can make you a billionaire with Feng Shui, this is nonsense. Why? If he can make you a billionaire, why has he not made a billionaire himself? This is logical deduction. Making such claims is nonsense and by logical deduction we can say that he does not know Feng Shui.

However, using logic does not make Feng Shui a science. Whoever accuses me of contradicting myself makes a fundamental error in logic:

(1) Science uses logic.
(2) Feng Shui uses logic.
Therefore, Feng Shui is science.
