Last week I watched a very interesting documentary on BBC by Prof Brian Cox, that is as cute as intelligent, and I was amazed how he talks about life as it reflects the science behind Feng Shui.

Prof Cox defines life as a “process, the interaction between matter and energy described by the laws of physics and chemistry, the same laws that describes the falling, the rain, the shining, the stars”.

These are the same laws that are at the base of Feng Shui (that means “Wind and Water”).

What is life? The traditional answer is one that invokes the supernatural, as seen at the annual Day of the Dead celebrations in the Philippine highlands. Prof Cox sets out to offer an alternative answer: one bound up in the flow of energy through the universe.

On the edge of Taal Volcano lake, Prof Cox demonstrates how the first spark of life may have arisen. Here, heat energy from the inner Earth forces its way to the surface and changes its chemistry, just as it did in our planet’s infancy. It is now believed that these chemical changes set up a source of energy from which life first emerged.

Today, virtually all derives its energy from the Sun. But there’s a paradox to this as according to the laws of physics energy can neither be created nor destroyed. So life doesn’t ‘use’ energy up. It can’t remove it from the universe. So how does energy enable living things to live?

Brian reveals life to be a conduit through which energy in the universe passes, just one part in a process that governs the lifecycle of the entire Universe. By diverting energy in the cosmos living things are able to grow and thrive.

But whilst the flow of energy can explain living things, it can’t explain how life has endured for more than three billion years. So Brian meets an animal in the Borneo rainforest that holds the key to how life persists – the orangutan. Ninety seven per cent of our DNA is shared with orangutans. That shared heritage reveals a profound conclusion: that DNA is a record of the evolution of life on Earth, one that connects us to everything alive today and that has ever lived.

So life isn’t really a thing. It’s a chemical process, a way of tapping into the energy flowing through the Universe and transmitting it from generation to generation through the elegant chemistry of DNA. Far from demanding a mystical explanation, the emergence of life might be an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics.

The Feng Shui studies and analyses this flow of energy through the universe. And that is where the name Feng Shui comes from: “Wind and Water”.

Water represents 70% of our planet and at the same time 70% of our body. It is indispensable for life.

Wind transports Energy (Qi), that is the ability to make things happen!
