A THEORY ON THE ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT OF ANCIENT CHINESE GEOMANCY (FENG-SHUI)

Hong-key Yoon  
Chinese geomancy(feng-shui) is a system of evaluating landscapes in order to find auspicious sites on which to place suitable structures. This ancient Chinese system should not be categorised as either science or superstition, for it includes both elements. All the basic principles of Chinese geomancy point to the factors determining an ideal site for loess cave dwellings. Based on the analysis of geomantic principles and field observations, I suggest that loess plateau areas where rolling hills and nearby water as the probable place where ancient Chinese geomancy had started.
