#20: Feng Shui and the Holographic Concept

When William Blake wrote, “To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower,” he was reflecting on the holographic concept of the universe where each part of the whole contains the complete information that reflects the whole.

14: Does Good Luck Come From “the Blowing of Wind And the Flowing of Water”?
