In saju, science and mystery are integrated exquisitely together. People may denigrate saju for its seemingly superstitiousness but it should be accredited to its scientific content as well, whose value can be recognized with the advance of contemporary science. I am interested in how saju and other types of fortunetelling such as astrology, which actually have many fundamentals in common, collaborate with AI in reading and translating not only human fate, but many other economic and social indexes.
Saju reads various information about people based on accumulated data from celestial movements and climatic elements when they were born. It may tell one's wealth, reputation, knowledge and vocational aptitude on top of biological and social relations.
I am often asked to read the future prospects of a company or a television program based on their establishment or launching dates. Some masters have tried to forecast stock market with the help of saju theory. The below photo is a device developed by an Italian artist to show the astrology chart of a listed company in global major stock markets.
I have read the saju of a securities company to determine whether it would be merged by another company based on its establishment date. The company consists of many letters symbolizing investments showing significant energy to represent its authority and contracts. Based on my reading, they face a major change in their destiny this year.
Looking back on the old days, ancient people viewed the universe and nature with a wholistic perspective and there was no demarcation between the East and the West in this respect. Passing through modern times, the West divided the whole into the parts until they reached the atom, an undividable particle to be observed and experimented on. It was the division of mind and body in other words.
In the meantime the development of science yielded different traces in the East. Instead of distinguishing man from nature, Eastern people tried to perceive the two as one structure by apprehending man as a part of the nature. It might have impeded the development of modern science and become a major reason why and how science and mystery are commingled in various areas. Chaos, coincidence, probability and statistics are the words to explain this odd combination while contemporary science is represented by system theory, nonlinear science and so on. It is something that cannot be explained by the law of causility, dualism and mechanism.
The Eastern way of understanding obviously didn't accord with the way of modern science. However nowadays, with the advance of the Fourth Industrial Revolution represented by AI, big data and deep learning, the Eastern way, especially epitomized in the theory of saju, may produce many intriguing insights.
