HKIE Seminar on Chinese Traditional Wise on Environment Assessment (堪輿學與環境學 2018)

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) organized the Seminar named “Geomancy ( fung - shui ) Geography and Environics” (堪輿學與環境學 2018) on 26th Feb 2018. The seminar aimed to explain what is divination and its relationship with engineering (講解何謂術數及術數中與工程學有關之學術與硏究).  Since it is very difficult to translate into English, I summarized it using some Chinese below.


The guest speaker was Ms. Lai (黎曉日女士) and she had learnt divination from the gurus named “陳萬宜老師”.  She shared this seminar to HKIE annually since 2009.


春牛圖 (Spring Cow Picture)
Firstly, Ms. Lai showed the Spring Cow Picture in 2016, 2017 and 2018 with the farmer who was old man, young man and boy, respectively.  They related to 12 Chinese Zodiac (12生肖).
Old man: Dog (), Dragon (), Ox (), Sheep ()
Young man: Rat (), Horse (), Hare (), Rooster ()
Boy: Tiger (), Monkey (), Snake (), Pig ()
She explained the inflation would be serious in 2018.

有關廣東工業大學襟章的故事

上年二姨丈送了廣東工業大學的襟章給我。這是他多年前的工作單位,而我上年剛成為廣工大的可拓學與創新方法研究所兼職研究員及可拓學學術交流中心副主任。這襟章把我們兩代人和大學聯繫一起,別具意義。


以下是二姨丈的記錄:
這校章大概在上個世纪末,约1998年左右,因廣工大是在19956月才由原廣東工學院、廣東機械學院及華南建設學院(東院)合併组建而成的。這校章就是建校後两、三年才發的。

「可拓學」的學習分享

本文是回顧我從2016年開始學習「可拓學」所看的書, 由淺入深的一個介紹.  首先是蔡文教的「創意的革命 今天你“可拓”了嗎?. 這是一本通俗易明的入門書, 有大量國內事例作解說.  雖然說是入門, 沒有根基時, 還是感到很多地方不明白.  要看到最後一章才有簡單說明「可拓學」的基礎結構.  另一本通俗入門書是米甘干.理佛克(台東縣阿美族人)從蔡文教學得「可拓學」再出版了「不按牌理出牌」. 他主要是講解基本變換及基運算. 因年代久遠, 有些變換名稱不同.

1)      蔡文.創意的革命 今天你可拓了嗎?, 北京: 科學出版社, 2010 (第一版), 2015 (第三次印刷) (看畢)
2)      米甘干.理佛克. 不按牌理出牌, 北京: 中國書籍出版社, 2004.4 (第一版), 2005 (第二版) (看畢)


雖然我是讀了原著「可拓學」才開始讀李興森和張玲玲的「可拓創新思維及訓練」,但是我依然建議看他們的著作為先.  這樣可以更有把握去了解「可拓學」的思考方法.  接著是研讀楊春燕教最新寫成的「可拓創新方法」, 它有系統地介紹可拓創新四步法.  李興森教和張玲玲的書適一年, 而春燕教的書適授課給拓創新方法一級至三級認證課程. 「可拓創新方法」一書雖有公式, 但已經是最低限度.

3)      李興森, 張玲玲.可拓創新思維及訓練, 北京:機械工業出版社, 2016  (看畢)
4)      楊春燕. 可拓創新方法, 北京: 科學出版社, 2017  (看畢)


楊春燕, 蔡文的「可拓學」是標誌性著作, 它把整套理論由誕生至發展, 由理論至實施的方法都有描述.  內有很多公式有關集合論及變換等.  當初看時, 不明所以.  但我堅持把它看畢, 再參考其他書籍作輔助.  用英文本對應來看, 可以了解翻譯意思.  對香港常用英文上課的, 有很好的參考作用.  但如果只看英文本, 可以肯定不能了解「可拓學」的精髓所在.
