The Occurrence Mechanism and Operation Process of the Telepathy Between Heaven and Man in Chun Qiu Fan Lu and “Tian Ren San Ce”
YU Zhiping;School of Humanities,Shanghai Jiaotong University;
Dong Zhongshu, one of the most famous thinkers on the ancient Chinese thought of telepathy, raised a series of concepts and ideas such as natural law being the telepathy between the same type of things, yin-yang and character temperament deriving from each other, man being the copy of nature, things being done according to the five elements, and discussed the general principle of telepathy. His discussion entailed not only the logical deduction of many statements, but also the practical application of "praying for rain" and "preventing from rain"; in this way, he constructed a complete set of cognitive systems and advanced the thought of telepathy into a mature one. This article explains the occurrence mechanism and operation process of Dong Zhongshu's thought of telepathy between heaven and man to eliminate the mystical misinterpretation that people have been making for a long time and to overcome the malpractice that the studies in the academic circle only discuss the telepathy and the telepathy between heaven and man generally and superficially rather than thoroughly.
