Holistic with CoherenceUnder the philosophy of "Tao", which is parallel to the Greek philosophy of Macrocosm and Microcosm, to see the same pattern reproduced at all level of cosmos,
Chinese developed the Wu-Xing model to represent the generic pattern of cosmos. They establish a very intuitive generic pattern by observing the influence relation between basic elements of life - the metal, wood, water, fire and earth.
the Wu Xing model whcih is the center of Chinese culture to address the organic system of politic, social science, business and medica
The doctrine of Wu Xing
It is a holistic but simple thinking method to emphasizing the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts by analogical reasoning approach. In addition to the interdependence, it is essential to distinguish the current state relative to its life cycle and predict the future development direction. An enterprise can leverage on the understanding from this model to achieve a specific business goal and optimize the utilization of resources.
Under the influence of classical physic from sixteen century, most of scientific trained community have the bias view of Eastern culture as non scientific and even superstitious. The concept of Wu-Xing is virtually unknown in the western world, only small group of people heard about Wu-Xing as a divination device. In the modernize eastern world, Wu-Xing is also abandoned by the western educated community.
LEA suggest the Coherence Architecture to embraces change and helps organizations formulate educated business strategies, make sound investments, and deliver the right solutions -- to the right people, at the right times, and to the right places.
2.3 The Five elements
It is sometimes translated as Five Elements, but the Wu Xing are chiefly an ancient mnemonic device, hence the preferred translation of "movements", "phases" or "steps" over "elements". By the same token, Mu is thought of as "Tree" rather than "Wood".
The five elements are:
Fire In Chinese thought Fire is associated with the qualities of dynamism, strength and persistence; however, it is also connected to restlessness. The fire element provides warmth, enthusiasm and creativity, however an excess of it can bring aggression, impatience and impulsive behavior. In the same way, fire provides heat and warmth, however an excess can also burn. In the conquest cycle, fire overcomes metal, and in turn is overcome by water. In the birth and nurturing cycle, fire burns to earth, and is sparked by wood igniting.
Earth : In Chinese thought Earth is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work and stability. The earth element is also nurturing and seeks to draw all things together with itself, in order to bring harmony, rootedness and stability. Other attributes of the earth element include ambition, stubbornness, responsibility and long-term planning. In pathology, the earth can represent selfishness and self-centeredness.
Metal : The qualities associated with metal are firmness, rigidity, persistence, strength and determination. The metal person is controlling, ambitious, forceful and set in their ways as metal is very strong;
Water: In Chinese Taoist thought, water is representative of intelligence and wisdom, flexibility, softness and pliancy; however, an over-abundance of the element is said to cause difficulty in choosing something and sticking to it. In the same way, Water can be fluid and weak, but can also wield great power when it floods and overwhelms the land.
Wood : In Chinese thought, Wood attributes are considered to be strength and flexibility, as with bamboo. It is also associated with qualities of warmth, generosity, co-operation and idealism. The Wood person will be expansive, outgoing and socially conscious. The wood element is one that seeks always to grow and expand. Wood heralds the beginning of life, springtime and buds, sensuality and fecundity. Wood needs moisture to thrive.
Five Element Relationships As described in the Sacred Lotus Arts
It was observed over the years that the Five Elements relate to each other in different ways.
* Sheng Cycle (Generating Sequence)
* Ko Cycle (Controlling Sequence)
* Destructive Cycle (Overacting Sequence)
* Anti Ko Cycle (Insulting Sequence)
The Generating Sequence or Mother-Child Relationship
As in the cycle of the seasons, each element generates another, i.e., one element is the "mother" of the next.
Wood (Liver) creates Fire (Heart) Wood is the Mother of Fire Liver is the Mother of the Heart
Fire (Heart) creates Earth (Spleen) Fire is the Mother of Earth
Earth (Spleen) creates Metal (Lungs) Earth is the Mother of Metal
Metal creates Water Metal is the Mother of Water
Water creates Wood. Water is the Mother of Wood
Naturally, therefore, each element is generated by another: Fire is the child of Wood, Earth is the child of Fire, etc. In nature, we see this in the seasonal changes: Winter transforms into Spring, Spring changes into Summer.
Controlling Sequence or Father-Child relationship Each element is said to control, check, or regulate another.
* Wood controls Earth
* Fire controls Metal
* Earth controls Water
* Metal controls Wood
* Water controls Fire
Each element is of course then controlled by another.
* Earth is controlled by Wood
* Wood is controlled by Metal, etc.
This cycle ensures that a balance is maintained between elements.
The "father-child" symbology relates to traditional family roles, where the father was the patriarchal head of the household. The mother, by comparison, is seen as the creative and nurturing force.
This is the same as the Ko cycle, but in this sequence, one Element is said to "over-control" or "destroy" another, causing the controlled element to become Deficient. This happens when balance breaks down so that one element becomes excessive in relationship to another.
E.g. An excess of Wood energy will over-control Earth, causing Earth to become Deficient.
This cycle is the reverse of the Ko cycle or controlling sequence. In the Insulting Sequence, the element that should BE controlled becomes imbalanced and excessive, and controls the element that normally controls it.
Example: Instead of Metal controlling Wood, if Wood becomes excessive, it can "insult" Metal, causing it to become imbalanced. This is akin to the child rebelling and insulting or trying to discipline its father.
3. The Wu Xing Matrix
Mathematically, a pure quantum state is typically represented by a vector in a Hilbert space. In physics, bra-ket notation is often used to denote such vectors. Linear combination (superpositions) of vectors can describe interference phenomena. Mixed quantum states are described by density matrices. In quantum mechanics, a density matrix is a self-adjoint (or Hermitian) positive-semi definite matrix (possibly infinite dimensional) of trace one, that describes the statistical state of a quantum system. The formalism was introduced by John von Neumann (and according to other sources, independently by Lev Landau and Felix Bloch) in 1927.
Holistic is define as "emphasizing the organic or functional relation between parts and the whole"
The holistic matrix is use to describe the whole and the functional relation. It is constructed using the five element as the same pattern reproduced in all level of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level).
2.1 The field of Energy : "Chi"
The field of Energy : the "Chi" is not visible in the Wu-Xing model but it is essential in the entire space. Wu-Xing have taken the concept of Field into the element model. Element and Field have become aspects of an perplexing physical reality. It is a the property of indeterminacy and statistical causality in quantum theory. T
The cyclic nature of change
The ancient Wu-Xing model is not only about equlibrium but alsl take business cycle into account. The combination of equlibrium and functional cycle analysis serve as the foundation of Chinese Traditional Mediccal Practice. The concept can be further verifyed in the business cycle theory.
Wikipeidia says The first systematic exposition of periodic economic crises, in opposition to the existing theory of economic equilibrium, was the 1819 Nouveaux Principes d'¨¦conomie politique by Jean Charles L¨¦onard de Sismondi. Prior to that point classical economics had either denied the existence of business cycles, blamed them on external factors, notably war, or only studied the long term, Sismondi found vindication in the Panic of 1825, which was the first unarguably internal economic crisis, occurring in peacetime
Coherence on Wu Xing expression
Coherent dianosis in Chinese Medicine
The interdependence of Zang Fu networks in the body was noted to be a circle of five things, and so mapped by the Chinese doctors onto the five phases. For instance, the Liver (Wood phase) is said to be the "mother" of the heart (Fire phase), and the Kidneys (Water phase) the mother of the Liver. The key observation was things like kidney deficiency affecting the function of the liver. In this case, the "mother" is weak, and cannot support the child. However, the Kidneys control the heart along the Ke cycle, so the Kidneys are said to restrain the heart. Many of these interactions can nowadays be linked to known physiological pathways (such as Kidney pH affecting heart activity).
The key thing to keep in mind with the Chinese medical application of the five elements is that it is only a model, and it is known to have exceptions.
The citation order of the Five Phases, i.e., the order in which they are cited in the Bo Hu Tong and other Han dynasty texts, is Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. The organs are most effectively treated, according to theory, in the following four-hour periods throughout the day, beginning with the 3 a.m. to 7 a. m. period: Metal organs (see the list below), Earth organs, Fire1 organs, Water organs, Fire2 (the "non-empirical" Pericardium and Triple Burner organs), and Wood organs, which is the reverse of the citation order (plus an extra use of Fire and the non-empirical organs to take care of the sixth four-hour period of the day). These two orders are further related to the sequence of the planets going outward from the sun (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, or Water, Metal, Fire, Wood, and Earth) by a star diagram similar to the one shown above.
