IS QI THE SAME AS FLOW OF AIR, WIND OR ENERGY?
The answer is the flow of air or wind has Qi but it is not Qi in its fuller sense, because Qi in Feng Shui is made of Form Qi and Formless Qi, similar to Einstein’s theory of relativity that energy and matter are interchangeable, from his famous equation E = mc2 so we have to look at the two parts and what effects their relationship has to each other to use the term Qi.
Form Qi, as the name implied, has form and a shape, it is manifested, tangible and visible, it is also measurable and quantifiable, whereas Formless Qi has no form, it is un-manifested, intangible and hidden, it is not measurable and not quantifiable, it can only be felt individually.
Form Qi is something that actually exists, while Formless Qi has the ability to become but not yet manifested, and we cannot pull them apart when we talk about Qi in its totality because they are the complementary opposites to each other like Yin and Yang, one cannot do without the other.
This idea that there is Form and Formless Qi within each other implied that Qi is in everything and Qi is everywhere, it is both material and spiritual, it combines “potentiality” with “matter” and we cannot just see it as matter on its own, neither as potentiality by itself. That is why it is so difficult to define and measure Qi, because it is a thing and an idea and it is also concrete and abstract at the same time.
With this in mind, let’s get back to question, “Is Qi the same as wind”? The answer is yes when we talk about Wind Qi, but no, when it is only about wind as a physical force that we can measure its effect but not its potential to become. So in a way we have to speak about wind and its “windiness” before we can say it is Qi, because Qi is more than energy, it is energy that has the potential to become matter while remaining what it is. Likewise, Qi can be matter, but is more than matter, which has the potential to become energy or a force while remaining what it is.
September 27, 2016
I have done this prediction one day before the first debate on the 27th. September 2016, with Xuankong Mingli; not so much that the stars can tell the future with certainty, but out of my fears and longing for America to stay the righteous course, because her influence on the rest of the world is immense. I am not worry about the outcome of the debates I just hope the stars can give us the reassuring signs.
I use the two candidates birth time to obtain their Ming Gua (Trigram of Fate) number and its associated Five-Phase, then I look at the stars (i.e. the Trigrams) for the year, the month and the day and see how time influence each of them to get a reading.
Clinton was born in 1947, so she has a Ming Gua 7 Metal; Trump was born in 1946, so he has a Ming Gua 9 Fire. The yearly star on duty is 2 Earth, the monthly star on duty is again 2 Earth and the daily star on duty is 4 Wood.
For Hillary, the year generates into her, the month also generates into her and she controls the day of election. For Donald, the year weakens him, the month also weakens him and the day generates into him. What generates into a person nourishes this person and what the person controls is his or her wealth and power.
So the outcome looks much more favourable for Clinton, she will win the election but Trump will also benefit from the contest even though he loses out. For Clinton, being the first female president is what she wants and for Trump the whole contest is a stage for him and he would become even more famous afterward and that would certainly help his business in the future. The fear is that he might suffer health problems as a consequence, because the contest will ultimately weakens him as showed by the yearly and the monthly stars, whereas Clinton will grow stronger.
Of course this might not happen at all, prediction is a risky business, whether we use Western science or Chinese metaphysics. Que Sera, Sera.
