In the general scheme of many philosophies there is the combination of the 4 directions and the 5 elements that creates sort of a grid like this:
5 elements Wood and metal
Fire and water
And the 5th is earth
4 directions equal east/west /north/south
Does anyone notice the falsity of this scheme or its incompleteness?
It’s very clear to me
What do the thinkers here think?
I will give the answer if no one gets in a timely manner.
A point here: The Chinese have the earth in the middle of the elemental scheme but most philosophies don’t do it that way
The Chinese method to me is correct because through that method will we perfect this grid system. It will fall in place like a snugly fitting puzzle
In other words both the elements and the 4 directions are incomplete the addition of one element will perfect both parts
I yield to the thinkers of ATS
