    Default Fengshui

    From the new $1 coin to garden by the bay, do you believe in it?

    The question is rather: Does Fengshui believe in Singapore?

    Don't understand what you are trying to say.
    I though fengshui is more like "environmental science".

    Ok, sorry if my irony missed you.
    If Fengshui is science, the it does not require believe but facts and independent assessment, peer verification and all the other things one can see in the established science subjects. To me, it hovers somewhere between psychology, psychosomatic topics, common sense, personal preferences and ecology. Such topics are always difficult to pin down.

    It brings fortune to Singapore... not to the organization that runs the wheel. They must have missed the environmental science footnote.

    this is a very complex subject,

    but I notice, for some people believe strongly in display some ornaments will bring them good luck, it is not the ornaments bring them luck, but their strong desire bring them the luck.

    It is psychology both to the user and other parties who believe in it. I once spoke to a fenshui 'master' when he attends one of the sessions where he give advices for bring in good business. He claims a certain corner of the building facing is bad fenshui. Something need to be placed there to 'improve' the situation. Being a tall building, that same location is repeated numerous times above. Many occupants are enjoying good business!

    He answer is, we'll everybody is different and the items placed in each floor also differs. So, even if you have done what he told you, the 'external elements' will decide if it works. The conclusion, he is never wrong! Hahaha

    No no no.... If everyone is the same, it will spell bad fengshui for his biz. Just reveal to one, the rest follow for free.

    Which puts this 'master' closer to religion and superstition. Pair that with business and it gets really murky and fishy.

    He is definitely not superstition. Every time he walks around for 30 minutes, it is a few thousand bucks in his pocket without having to produce even a single written report! Better than any consultant. Even Dr Susan needs to attend to her patient 24 hours and provide medical aids. Hahaha
