Chapter: Weak Points and Strong



The five elements (water, fire, wood, metal, earth) are not always equally predominant; the four seasons make way for each other in turn. There are short days and long; the moon has its periods of waning and waxing.


When you break things down to the fundamental elements, you may find that those basic patterns do not appear equally and have different impacts.

Nothing is constant and stable, not even atoms. All is in flux. A pictures is a snapshot in time, yet life is a three-dimensional dynamic.

Yet there are also predictable patterns amongst interactional dynamics. The four seasons, for example, always follow each other in a predictable sequence.

If you can understand the basic elements, how they work and interact, and how they form predictable patterns, then you will be able to create and predict many things.
