36 Years ago on March 8 in a Fire Dragon Year, a meteor
shower fell in Jilin Province in China's northeast, with
the biggest one weighted at 1.77 tons. A month later, April
5 Incident erupted; 6 months later, Mao Zedong passed
away; 7 months later, a political coup took place and the
Gang of Four were arrested, and China entered a new era.
It has to be said that the change at the time was overwhelmingly
welcomed by the majority of Chinese people from all walks
According to the Five Agents theory, Fire gives birth to
Earth (1988 is an Earth Dragon year), thus China has been
turned into a giant construction field and a modern China
emerged in the East (at least in its physical appearance
in the eastern seaboard of China).
Again, according to the Five Agents theory, Earth nurtures
Metal (2000 is a Metal Dragon Year), while gold and coin
are all metals, therefore China's GDP figures keep rising
and Chinese government becomes the richest regime in the
world, to the point it "doesn't even know how to spend
all its savings" - claimed some State Council's top
economic consultants in their interviews with the Western
media - and "which is why it invested 3,000 billion
"You invest such a big amount into a single product,
which could be quite risky," a timid foreign journalist
commented. "Oh, if one can't bear loss, he shouldn't
be in the business," the Chinese consultant replied
in upbeat mood, "after all, the money isn't a problem, Chinese
government just has too much money in its hand."
But, gosh, the universe is running in circles, and that
is a universal truth, thus Metal eventually rusts and melts
away and becomes Water, hence in the Water Dragon Year 2012,
Beijing flooded in July, Chongqing inundated in August, Hefei
deluged on the both days when it tried and sentenced Gu Kailai,
and meteor rain once again fell in Jilin Province in China's
northeast on August 13.
A circle is closing.
