Lightbulb Blue House

The Blue House (Korean: 청와대; Hanja: 靑瓦臺; Cheongwadae; literally "pavilion of blue tiles")is the executive office and official residence of the South Korean head of state, the President of the Republic of Korea and located in the capital city of Seoul. The Blue House is in fact a complex of buildings, built largely in the traditional Korean architectural style with some modern elements...

Geomancers have long considered the area in which Cheongwadae is located as an auspicious location. This view was backed up by an inscription on a stone wall that reads: "The Most Blessed Place on Earth," found behind the official presidential residence during the construction of a new building in 1990..To the north of hugiwawa is the mountain Bukhansan, flanked by 2 mountains, Naksan, symbolizing the Azure Dragon, on the left and Inwangsan, symbolizing the White Tiger, on the right. To the south is Namsan, the protective mountain of the capital. In front flow the Cheonggyecheon stream and Han River..

Geomancy (Greek: γεωμαντεία, "earth divination") is a method of divination that interprets markings on the ground or the patterns formed by tossed handfuls of soil, rocks, or sand.. The most prevalent form of divinatory geomancy involves interpreting a series of 16 figures formed by a randomized process that involves recursion followed by analyzing them, often augmented with astrological interpretations..In Renaissance magic, geomancy was classified as one of the 7 "forbidden arts", along with necromancy, hydromancy, aeromancy, pyromancy, chiromancy , and spatulamancy .. is the practice of divination by use of scapulae (shoulder blades)..Scapulimancy was also mentioned in Chapter 5 of the Kojiki, the Japanese Record of Ancient Matters,in which the heavenly deities used this process of divination during a consultation by lesser gods..It is also a method of divination among Greek and Serb farmers, even today. It is probably of extremely ancient origin. More recently, references are found in the memoirs of several warriors who fought during the Greek War of Independence. Whenever they had a feast, they used to roast lambs or kids, and after the meal, anyone who knew how to "read" the scapula would clean it of any remaining flesh and, lifting it up to the light, would interpret the various shadowy bits showing on the transparent part of the bone. A clear scapula was a good omen. Shadowy bits had their interpretation and by this they used to predict the outcome of a battle on the morrow, death or survival...
The Azure Dragon is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. It represents the east and the spring season. It should not be confused with the mythological yellow dragon that is associated with the Emperor of China. It is also referred to in media, feng shui, other cultures, and in various venues as the Green Dragon and the Avalon Dragon..As the other 3 Symbols, there are 7 "mansions", or positions, of the moon within Azure Dragon..The 126th meridian East forms a great circle with the 54th meridian West..The 37th parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 37 degrees north of the Earth's Equatorial plane..At this latitude the sun is visible for 14 hours, 42 minutes during the summer solstice and 9 hours, 37 minutes during the winter solstice..the parallel 37° north passes through Turkey for about 7 km \ 37°0′N 44°16′E... special assignment for "The Daily Sentinel." You know..Okay, how about, um, the Red Hippopotamus No Not Red Hippopotamus..I was born in Shanghai.. You know Shanghai..And so, thunder strikes lightning..I can see by that stupid Expression you've had on your face for past 5 minutes that you're trying to piece this together...
