Let’s select the Number 5 as a Randomly Selected Number by the Chinese to be both lucky and unlucky.
To the Chinese who let the randomality of numbers that appear in their lives rule their lives, the number five alone is unlucky.
In Chinese the number five when spoken has a ‘wu’ sound, therefore any other entity associated with that number is also considered unlucky. Why? The ‘wu’ sound reminds them of the sound of ‘no’ in Chinese. It’s not actually that close; I listened. But if speaking very fast – probably. One might think that lazy listening was at fault, and not the ‘wu’ sound of no when the word five is spoken in Chinese, but they didn’t and continue not to see it that way.
They heard and continue to hear No when they heard or continue to hear any word before or after the word five that sounds like the word NO.
Later, just seeing the word five or number 5 in print triggered an automatic negative reaction in their brain and they steered clear.
However, to ease the burden of unlucky, many of those Chinese people made and continue to make exceptions through qualifying variables. Maybe the entity is associated with another lucky number or event or what we all like, even though the world doesn’t?
Although the Chinese people can perform astronomical feats of synchrony with perfection unseen in any other demographic, which makes it appear that they follow instructions easily, without much forethought even, which leads one to further believe that they can be easily led – that’s not the reality of it.
They became expert at over-riding and circumventing that which they feared and continue to fear, which ultimately made and continues to make them appear fearless, at least to the outsider.
One might think that the Chinese people fear the Chinese government and they do. But the Chinese government also fears the Chinese people.
Consider this strength, born out of a weakness in accepting randomality as a guide to a better life, in all negotiations with anyone Chinese, no matter where they reside or what political system they live within.
NO to FIVE (5) FATAL FLAWS: PREJUDICE, DISCRIMINATION, ENSLAVEMENT, TORTURE, SLAUGHTER.
One leads to the other if not stopped before it leaves the theatre of prejudice to discriminate.
YES, Five (5) Principles To A Better Life are Lucky to and for Everybody.
NO prejudice, NO discrimination, No enslavement, NO torture, NO slaughter.
If the entire world stays in the theatre of prejudice, before acting out their likes and dislikes in the theatre of discrimination, then the world will be okay.
Play together in the theatre of prejudice. Do your best acting, then leave it there. Go home and live in harmony, whatever harmony means to you. Synchrony maybe.
FIVE STARS ON A CHINESE FLAG?
And China has an English ‘four’ sound in the Chinese spoken language? It’s there; I heard it.
Four UNLUCKY. Does that mean bad luck for Britain from China, or bad luck for China from Britain?
