Take over plot and creation of a Fake version of Fengshui by Chinese Ming emperor
Fengshui is not a religion, but a spiritual philosophy and technology not very unsimilar to Scientology in its goals:
Definition and Goals of Fengshui and Scientology
Feng shui (traditional Chinese: 風水; simplified Chinese: 风水; pinyin: fēng shuǐ; pronounced /ˈfəŋˌʃueɪ/ fung-shway in Mandarin or fung-shooy) is an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to utilize the laws of both Heaven (astronomy) and Earth (geography) to help one improve life by receiving positive qi or Chi, which is another name for Theta.
Compare this with the first definition of SCIENTOLOGIST in the "The Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary" by L. Ron Hubbard: one who betters the conditions of himself and the conditions of others by using Scn technology.
So Feng Shui seems to be a fore runner of Scientology in China, at least per its original purpose. When we take a look at the history of Feng Shui we can see the relationship between government and such an attempt for betterment of mankind:
History of Feng Shui
Feng Shui was practiced in china for several years. We can trace the use of this science as back as the Tang dynasty. It was used mainly in the imperial court practice. Those days the Feng Shui masters were either highly honored or put to death in order to ensure that they do not give the benefit of their knowledge to others. Chinese folk tales are full of stories about the Feng Shui practitioners.
It is believed that the first Ming emperor Chu Yuan Chaun could overthrow the last Mongol emperor with the help of an extremely auspicious Feng Shui of his father’s grave. But this ungrateful emperor ordered the killing of all the Feng Shui masters on gaining power. He was also instrumental in making and distributing fake Feng Shui literature in the public.
The third Ming emperor suffered due to this fake literature as he had a new capital created in the place that is presently known as the Forbidden City in Beijing. This was created as per this fake Feng Shui and shortly after the palaces were built, they were burnt away. There were a number of mishaps during this time due to the wrong Feng Shui. Later when Manchus overthrew the Mings, they to succumbed to the effects of wrong Feng Shui. This continued till emperor Chien Lung took a personal interest in finding & introducing correct Feng Shui. His period was full of good luck and prosperity to his people. Later it was seen that even Mao Tse Tung and Deng Xioa Ping had benefited with the Feng Shui of the graves of their ancestors. Yet Mao Tse Tung did not allow the practice of Feng Shui during his rule as he was always having the fear to be overthrown.
Don't think, that the versions of Fengshui which are available today for the broad public are not infiltrated very much by these fake versions. They are definitely. A lot of advices are just bullshit to mislead people into dead ends.
And as this 1.1 toned method of governmental control over a philosophy and technology is very effectiv, don't assume, that this was not done to Scientology either. It was done, as I showed on this website and my other websites which you can find in the menu under external links.
