From Fake Watches to Fake Europe.

July 23, 2015

Faux-European Towns in China don’t have good feng shui, many of them become eerie ghost towns.

The reasons being that they are fake places and we find it hard to connect to them and feel comfortable living in them. The Chinese would say they have “wu-qing” 無情 or they have no feelings and affections.

In a feng shui mnemonic (a song to aid memory) called “The Golden Letter Poem” 《金函詩》,it is clearly stated:

”A good Dragon and a good Liar has real affection, the formation comes alive when it is genuine”.

When it is a copy of a far-away place with a different culture and a different world-view, the results are often fake and false, they don’t come alive and so no one wants to live in them for long, except to take some pictures and then move on.
