Using Feng Shui’s Time Dimension to explain the past and current trends
The standard unit of time is the “hour, day, month, year”. They are also cycles – one hour has 60 seconds, one day has 24 hours, one month has about 30 days and one year has 365 days. The Chinese have further cycles of 12 years, 60 years and the 180 years.
In this talk, I am referring to the 180 year cycle which is made up of 9 sub-cycles, each of 20 years. As with Chinese philosophy, these cycles have their own particular characteristics or properties.
This video is about two of these 20 year sub-cycles. They are known as Period 7 and Period 8. The characteristics of each sub-cycle are different and I will show how they relate to current social and economic trends. As the saying goes: ”To be forewarned is to be forearmed”.
1984-2004 is known as Period 7. It was a brash time, rise of the women in the workplace, the spending of money, and the rise of the service industries. 2004-2024 (Period 8 ) is totally different – creative and manufacturing industries, different perception on money; village life with a caring and sharing mindset.
The talk is in the Pecha Kucha format; showing of 20 images each for 20 seconds.
The video is for the UK audience but for non-UK viewers, there is some background information on Katie Price (aka Jordan) and her ex-husband Peter Andre.
Katie Price is a celebrity, famous for being famous. At the age of 33, she has already written her 5th autobiography and is in a number of reality shows. She says what she thinks. She is considered to be impulsive, frank, argumentative and a spendthrift.
Peter Andre is a singer who had the hit “Mysterious Girl” in the 1990s. His second spell as a celebrity started with his romance with Katie Price. He takes is “craft” seriously. He practises his singing whenever he has time. He has a TV programme where he goes around the country helping people to raise money for their projects. He uses his time and celebrity status to help.
