From Knowledge Cybernetics to Feng Shui

Maurice Isaac Yolles

Abstract


Feng Shui is a Chinese Taoist methodology that explores the harmony and balance of
landscapes, and there is no equivalent to it in the West. Its metaphors are quite
impenetrable for scientists, and this paper attempts to explore the principles of Taoism
within the context of the science of cybernetics, and in particular knowledge cybernetics.
The synergy that develops enables the metaphors of Tao to be expressed in terms that
may be understood through Western metaphors.
