SU WEN III THE ENERGY AND THE COSMOS THE YANG AND THE YIN ARE THE SOURCE OF LIFE. MAN POSSESSES NINE ORIFICES, THE EARTH HAS NINE OCEANS, HE HAS FIVE ORGANS, THE HEAVENS HAVE FIVE SOUNDS, HE HAS TWELSE PRINCIPAL ARTICULATIONS, THE YEAR HAS THREE-HUNDERED-SIXTY DAYS, HE HAS TWELVE MERIDIANS, THE EARTH HAS TWELVE RIVERS. THE ENERGY OF MAN CORRESPONDS TO THE FIVE ELEMENTS: FIRE, METAL, WOOD, WATER, EARTH. IT CIRCULATES IN THE THREE YANG AND THE THREE YIN OF THE MERIDIANS. WHEN THE HEAVEN IS CALM, THE SPIRIT, THE WILL OF MAN MUST BE CALM. IF HE IS THUS, HIS YANG ENERGY WILL BE POWERFUL AND THE SICKNESSES WILLL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTACK HIM. IF HE IS, ON THE CONTRARY, IN OPPOSITION WITH THE ENERGY OF THE HEAVENS, THE NINE ORIFICES WILL BE CLOSED, THE PORES OF THE EPIDERMIS WILL BE DISTURBED AND THE ENERGY WILL BE DISPERSED. THE YANG ENERGY IS SIMILAR TO THE SOLAR ENERGY. IF THE YANG ENERGY LEAVES ITS CUSTOMARY LOCATION, SICKNESS IMMEDIATELY ARRIVED. LIKE THE SUN, THE YANG ENERGY ALWAYS RESIDES ABOVE, THIS IS WHAT DEFENDS THE EXTERIOR OF THE BODY. IF ONE GETS A SHOCK FROM THE COLD, THE YANG ENERGY, CHASED FROM ITS NORMAL LOCATION, BECOMES ERRANT. IF ONE GETS A SHOCK FROM HEAT, ONE SEES APPEAR ABUNDANT SWEATS, DYSPNEA, GREAT THIRST, DIVAGATION, THE BODY BURNS AS IN A FIRE. IF ONE IS ATTACKED BY EXCESS HUMIDITY, HE HEAD IS AS IF IN COTTON, THE GREAT MUSCLES SPASM AND THE SMALLL MUSCLES BECOME ATONIC. SWELLING IS OWED TO AN EXCESS OF ENERGY. WHEN THE ENERGY OF THE FOUR LIMBS IS DISTURBED, IT IS DISPERSED AND EXHAUSTED. THE YANG ENERGY INCREASES DURING THE SUMMER, IF IT IS DISTURBED, ONE WILL SEE APPEAR AS A COMPLICATION DISORDERS OF VISION AND OF HEARING. IF THE YANG ENERGY IS AGGRAVATED, IT MOVED TO THE HEAD AND PROVOKES COMA OR SYNCOPE AND AFFECTS THE MUSCLES AND LIMBS, IF THE SUDATION IS TOO ABUNDANT, ONE CAN SEE HEMIPLEGIA APPEAR. IF ONE ABSORBS TOO MUCH MEAT OR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES, ONE WILL SEE SOME ABSCESSES APPEAR. THE YANG ENERGY, WHEN IT IS CALM AND GENTLE, NOURISHES THE MUSCLES, WHEN IT IS PURE, IT FORTIFIES OUR VITALITY. WHEN THE ENERGY CANNOT CIRCULATE FREELY, THE COLD PENETRATES INTO THE BODY, REACHES THE MERIDIANS AND PROVOKES OBSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERFICIAL ENERGY OF THE EPIDERMIS CIRCULATES POORLY, ONE WILL SEE APPEAR ABSCESSES AND SWELLINGS. IF ONE GETS A SHOCK FROM COLD AND IF THE BENEFICIAL PERSPIRING IS NOT APPARENT, THE ENERGY IS INFLAMED, THE YU POINTS ARE CLOSED, THE INTERMITTENT FEVER APPEARS. THE FONG CAN PROVOKE HUNDREDS OF SICKNESSES. WHEN IT HAS PENETRATED INTO THE BODY IT IS INTRODUCED INTO THE MERIDIANS AND IS TRANFORMED INTO COLD, HEAT, OR HUMIDITY. THE ENERGY OF MAN MUST BE ABLE TO STRUGGLE AGAINST THESE FONGS, THE PHYSICIAN MUST KNOW HOW TO DISPERSE THEM. IT IS THE YANG ENERGY WHICH IS THE GUARDIAN OF THE DOOR DURING THE DAY, BECAUSE IT APPEARS AT DAWN, IT IS AT ITS MAXIMUM OF INTENSITY AT NOON AND IS WEAKENED AT THE SETTING OF THE SUN, AT THIS MOMENT THE DOOR OF THE ENERGY IS CLOSED. THE YIN ENERGY ACCUMULATES ALL THE ENERGETIC SUBSTANCES IN ORDER TO STRUGGLE AGAINST SICKNESSES. THE YANG ENERGY MOUNTS TO DEFEND THE EXTERIOR OF THE BODY AGAINST THE ATTACK OF THE SICKNESSES. IF THE YANG ENERGY BECOMES STRONGER THAN THE YIN ENERGY, THE BLOOD BEGINS TO CIRCULATE MUCH MORE RAPIDLY, AND IF THE DISEQUILIBRIUM IT TOO GREAT, ONE WILL SEE SYMPTOMS OF "MADNESS" APPEAR. IF ON THE CONTRARY, THE YIN ENERGY BECOMES MUCH STRONGER THAN THE YANG ENERGY, THE ENERGY OF THE FIVE ORGANS IS DISTURBED, AND THEY STRUGGLE AMONG THEMSELVES, THE COMMUNICATION OF THE ENERGY BETWEEN THE NINE ORIFICES IS INTERRUPTED. THIS IS WHY THE WISE MAN MUST REGULATE THE EQUILIBRIUM BETWEEN THE YANG AND THE YIN ENERGIES. WHEN THE FONG TRIUMPHS OVER THE ENERGY OF MAN, THE ENERGY OF THE FIVE SENSES IS EXHAUSTED. IF ONE EATS IN EXCESS, THE CIRCULATION OF THE BLOOD INCREASES AND THE LIVER IS CONGESTED, WHICH WILL HAVE AN EFFECT UPON THE INTESTINES AND WILL PROVOKE HEMORRHOIDS. IF ONE ABSORBS ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES EXCESSIVELY, AND AFTERWARDS OVEREXERTS HIMSELF PHYSICALLY, THIS WILL INJURE THE ENERGY OF THE KIDNEYS AND IN CONSEQUENCE, THIS WILL INJURE THE BONES. THE YANG ENERGY MUST BE VIGOROUS, THE YIN ENERGY CALM. IF IT IS NOT THUS, THIS WILL BE LIKE A SPRING WITHOUT AUTUMN, A WINTER WITHOUT SUMMER. A SHOCK FROM COLD IN SPRING, WILL PROVOKE, IF IT IS NOT DISPERSED, DIARRHEA IN SUMMER. A SHOCK FROM HEAT IN SUMMER, IF IT IS NOT DISPERSED, WILLPROVOKE INTERMITTENT FEVER IN AUTUMN. THE HUMIDITY IN AUTUMN WIL PROVOKE COUGH IN WINTER. A SHOCK FROM COLD IN WINTER WILL PROVOKE TYPHOID FEVER IN SPRING. THERE ARE FIVE FLAVORS WHICH NOURISH THE YIN ENERGY. SOURNESS, ACID, MATCHES THE LIVER. BITTERNESS GOES TO THE HEART. SWEETNESS, COOLING, MATCHES THE SPLEEN. PUNGENT, ACRID, REACHES THE LUNGS. SALT GOES TO THE KIDNEYS. BUT THE NOURISHMENT OF TOO MUCH SOURNESS, ACID, WILL INJURE THE SPLEEN, TOO MUCH SALT WILL INJURE THE ENERGY OF HE HEART, TOOL MUCH SWEETNESS WILL INJURE THE KIDNEYS, TOO MUCH BITTERNESS THE LUNGS, TOO MUCH PUNGENT THE LIVER.
