Our challenge this week, hosted by Amy, is about the Chinese theory of the five elements: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. Welcome to join in!
This Theory asserts that the world changes according to the five elements’ generating or overcoming relationships. Generating and overcoming are the complementary processes — the yin and yang — of Five Element Theory.
Generating processes promote development, while overcoming processes control development. By promoting and restraining, systems are harmonized and balance is maintained.
