It was a pretty conservative choice but I didn't feel like trying anything more exotic at that point.
Numerology and divination from numbers was once considered to be
part of Mathematics, especially during the time of Pythagoras.
There are two major Classical Feng Shui Schools, the San He (means Three Harmonies), and the
San Yuan (means Three Cycles).
