Sorry to disturb your discussion.

We are a group of university students in Hong Kong. We are doing a
project about the analysis of traditional chinese taboos.

http://home.ie.cuhk.edu.hk/~ylliu9/survey.htm

You may find that most of these taboos sounds ridiculous and impossible.
Some of them even no longer believed by modern chinese. But actually,
some of these taboos can really give benefits to people if they follow
them. This is why we choose this as our topic. For example, the 14th one
(Marriage between couple with the same surname should be avoided,
otherwise they will bear teratogenic children). Nowadays, it is proven
that marriage between close relatives increase the probability of their
children having inherity diseases. Ancient chinese discovered this
phenomenon. To protect offsprings from inherity diseases, couple with
same surname is banned in ancient china. This is because in ancient
china, in a village, all people have same surname are relatives.

We want to know how people treat such taboos, especially the foreigners.
We want to make a comparison between the viewpoints of chinese and
foreigners in this topic.

Please come to our site and fill in the questionaire. We need you help
very much. Thank you.

I believe in superstitions of different cultures and of the wivestales and of their taboos. They have to have come from something that actually happened and continued to happen to others. Please respond to me regarding the Science of Chi, energy in the home, and most importantly to me, the positioning of mirrors, furniture and the home.
