Much Ado about Residence Address Numbers Cecil Lee Cecil Lee firstname.lastname@example.org
1. In my opinion, the best way to approach such a question is to see if your question(s) is linked to any common sense (if any).
2. Customs and Beliefs
2.1. For example, the Chinese Cantonese dialect group dislikes number "4'. As when pronounced in Cantonese literally means "die" or "death".
2.2. This is pure common sense. And because the Cantonese don't really like number 4, it also affects some other Chinese thru intermarriage between Cantonese and other dialect groups or if the population by large is made up of Cantonese or Cantonese influence.
2.3. For example, Hong Kong besides Canton, China has the largest pool of Cantonese. And even in countries like Singapore and Malaysia, especially during the 1960s to 1970's most of the Chinese shows on TV or cinema comes from Hong Kong studios.
2.4. Customs and Beliefs may result in the re-sale value of a home that may have number "4".
3. In Feng Shui, in general, especially for landed properties, house number remains "neutral". Other than again, based on either customs or beliefs or other influences (which I will clarify under Para 8).
4. In a recent forum posting, I mentioned that e.g. Singapore Airlines business class skips "13". In the past, I had also taken a photo of the business class cabin showing seat numbers 12 (A, B, C ...) skiping 13 and restart at 14 (A, B, C...)
5. Many Chinese are not as superstitious to the number 13 as compared to some westerners.
6. Thus, it is about customs and or influence. Or the saying goes: "One Man's Meat is another Man's poison".
7. In fact, on the contrary, I know of some clients who are not superstitious even if they are Chinese and have house or apartment numbers with 4 or 44 or even 444 in them.
7.1. Like I mentioned, this has more to do with FUTURE RESALE VALUE. And since it may affect future resale value, then isn't this COMMON SENSE or rather can be explained thru common sense. And not something so mysterious or hocus pocus.
8. Numbers can also be associated with other subject matters. And again, if someone argues that it is inauspicious because e.g. under Flying Star Feng Shui, today, #7 implies past prosperity or signifies "theft or wealth or robbery star". Then so be it.
8.1. The Five Elements Concept and Flying Star Feng Shui
8.2. Reference: http://forum.geomancy.net/review/tropica/index.php
8.3. The Seven Auspicious Clusters of Apartment Blocks
8.3.1 There are a total of 7 clusters of apartment blocks within this condominium development
8.3.2 Under the Lunar Calendar, we are now in the Period 7 i.e. from 1984 to 2004. The Number 7 is considered an auspicious number for this period. Since the development also will be completed in Period 7, this symbolizes Good Luck.
9. If one has no knowlege of Flying Star nor influenced by someone close or near-by then such Flying Star significance of "7" does not apply.
9.1. Unless like what you had done, listen to all the various "chats and talks" on this or that number.
10. It is the same thing as someone asking: What is MY LUCKY NUMBER(S)?
10.1 Frankly, there are at least more than 1,000 formulas or beliefs in what is or are lucky numbers. So, which formula you are looking at? Some formulas may deem number 7 favourable or good. While another formula may deem it average or even very inauspicious?
10.2 Under Flying Star Feng Shui, there is even a vertical Flying Star Feng Shui for evaluation of units e.g. level 1 onwards. But, often, this is just a guideline.
10.3 The main gist of Feng Shui is: The forms (Shapes and Forms) determine the stars (Flying Stars) - first.
11. Thus first key success factor is based On Shapes and Forms Feng Shui: LOCATION, LOCATION and LOCATION, first.
12. Earlier, you had encountered another form of "in the name of Feng Shui". Here, the easiest to know whether a Feng Shui website is into commercialised Feng Shui is to check whether they do sell any phsycial products on their website.
12.1 Frankly, the easiest to make tons of money is to sell useless products (with high mark-ups) in the name of Feng Shui.
12.2 The trick of such CON-man is to:
Under false pretenses the CON-man will say : "You need this specific item".
Then you ask: "Where to buy?"
He says: "Buy it from (only) ME"
