'The growing modern realization that the patterns of aligned tracks and monuments around the world belong to a forgotten code of science and religion, once universal, has come with the development of aviation, satellite surveying and new techniques of map making.' -John Michell, The New View over Atlantis, reprinted 1986

'You may see an Indian crouch down behind the taller heap, sight over the low one and mark the farthest object in a straight line, which is likely to be a clump of bushes on the horizon. Then he rides towards those bushes and finds - not water, as he expected, but two other heaps of rocks. Sighting as before, and taking a rockfaced cliff, perhaps towards the SW, as a goal, he rides a couple of miles farther, and there, trickling out from beneath the cliff's rocky brow, is a spring of fresh, clear water.

'3 months were exclusively devoted to the examination of the lineal ranges connected with the Turkey river range. During that time I traveled, according to my reckoning, at 20 miles per day, more than 900 miles, examining by excavation 76 earth-works, and surveyed 449 mounds. I succeeded in establishing, to my satisfaction … that the lineal ranges were designed as and constructed for national or international landmarks and boundaries.'

Ernest J Eitel - ‘Feng Shui Sacred Chinese Landscape’

Li = The Principles of Nature and the Laws of the Universe

1. Heaven Rules the Earth
2. Heaven and Earth influence all living things and we have the ability to affect it to our advantage.
3. Fortunes of the Living also depends on the goodwill of the dead (ancestors)

For consideration in determining a suitable location, one must consider many aspects of the Universe in relation to the Earth. These include; the position of the Sun (12 signs of the Zodiac), the Moon (the 28 Constellations), and the 5 Planets (known at the time).

The Constellations (of the Moon) include most notably;
The Great Bear - a seven star constellation
The Nine Luminaries - consists of 7 stars + the sun & moon
The Nine Stars of the Bushel, which has no fixed location (yea figure that out…) 

Also consider that each planet corresponds to an element (water + wood + Fire + Earth (Ash) + Metal), as well  as a cardinal direction.

'The force and nature of the invisible currents would be from hour to hour modified by the positions of the heavenly bodies' - Joseph Needham 'Science and Civilization in China'

Feng Shui
Ying = Forms of Nature
There are two magnetic currents, the Azure Dragon and the White Tiger.

1. The Azure Dragon can be found in high ground, the male aspect. The White Tiger found in the low ground, the female aspect of the landscape.

2. It is good for the high ground to be on the Left, the low ground to be on the right.

3. It is most desirable to have your site where the high ground and the low ground meet.

4. A curving, meandering waterway is desirable, where a straight flowing waterway is seen to carry away the sites prosperity.

5. If the majority of the site is male in nature, then the lucky site exists in the female portion, and vice versa.

'Every place had its special topographical features which modified the local influence of various chi (energies) of Nature. The forms of hills and the directions of water courses, being the outcome of the moulding influences of winds and waters - Ernest J Eitel 'Feng Shui'
