As translated by Micheal John Paton
Preface to the Secretly Passed down Water Dragon Classic
Of the writings on the principles of the earth that DaHong passed on, only the GuiHouLu (Record of Returning to Sincerity) is the most outstanding and there are many copies in the world. Yet this water dragon classic in five chapters has certainly never been seen before. I do not know when it entered the library of Xi of YuFeng. His man wanted a heavy price to set it aside. So it was not purchased until the library changed hands. While flipping through a jumble of papers, I discovered and recognized a mysterious volume.
I have often placed it in my luggage to use it for divining residences. This is the only volume in the world and I am afraid that it will consequently sink into oblivion and be lost. Moreover, much of the original book was in the wrong order with sentences omitted and characters written erroneously and with the mistaken incorporation of writers of the category of YangYunsong and LiuBoWen. Therefore, I made corrections and wrote out another copy and returned the original to QingHe.
I once took it out and showed it to experts on the water dragon like Wang JinGuang and Zhang ShiZhi who exclaimed in wonder at this singular copy and made a copy of it and left. From this you can know the value and importance of the book.
I have examined the mountain dragon and water dragon according to the opinion of antiquity and it was believed that (the idea of) a dragon had come from the GongLiu of the Book of Songs.
`If one ascends, they are at the peak. Moreover, one ascends the south ridge.' This then is the method of observing the mountain dragon.
`Behold the flowing spring becomes meagre and comes to an end.' This is the method of observing the water dragon.
However, in deciding on the middle of the area one matches a 'gradual rise' to 'look down', which indicates that these are the shallow theories of latter men who mixed everything together and that these do not come from the ancient theories. How can these be considered to be the first observations of DaHong? The only possibility is that the ancient method has not been passed down and that all the records of history consider this method to be the theory of the Form School, is it not?
The method of measuring the land is wholly within discerning the form. Yet the form of a mountain is vexatious. When one climbs to look into the distance from a high place at layer upon layer of ridges, it is difficult to bring the distant closer (to observe it better). Even with a form of water which is clearly manifested upon the land as lakes with twisting and turning for a hundred li, there will still be many considerations of the biased being correct and the pointed, round which will often fool the generation and damage the people.
However, discussion of situations according to books is essentially useless. Only those who have spiritual understanding and who have exhausted themselves in bitter effort can ascend the hall and enter the profound. This is what DaHong in the book often refers to as having knowledge with spirit and, thus, understanding the changes. Moreover, what is of utmost importance in the book is the Three Principals and the Nine Palaces. I had sought the method of the intention of the heavenly principal for several decades and still had not found a good copy until now. So I knew that there was much of the theory of Da Hong that had not been passed down. Da Hong associated mostly with the famous gentlemen of YunJian, Chen and Xia. Among all the books there was nothing that was not pried into by him. The different methods of divination such as GuXu, DunJia, ZhanZhen, and HouQi even down to QiaoGuan and FiCi were all essentially examined.
Moreover, he was also able to disappear and fly away. Therefore, the world speaks of when YuSi arose at ShaoXing he desired to work together with DaHong and securely locked him in a solid room. One evening DaHong disappeared and cavalrymen were sent to the four directions but no trace could be found of him. The meaning here is that DaHong was an intimate friend, a sensible person and a reclusive gentlemen.
Moreover, I have seen The Farewell of Da Hong on his Travelling North, written by Ge Zhi of YuFeng styled WoLong ShanRen who said: "JiangZi is a man of purpose and principle. For the sake of his work he would rather be driven by hunger and cold with the fear of unexpected horrors. He will wade the Huai and Si rivers to pass through Zou and Lu, lingering between Shanggul and Yuyang. Now the Huai and the Si are the rivers where Marquise Han once fished and it is here that he received the mystery book. The kingdoms of Zou and Lu are where the bells and drums of Confucius are still sounding and small evergreen shrubs in Confucius' native place are still thriving. Shanggu and Yuyang are the places where GengYan and WuHan initiated their meritorious achievements. JiangZi will drive his carriage in these areas and will be so touched that he must gain something."
Master Ge's words being like this seem to indicate that Dahong is a person who desires to test his talent and intends to 'throw stones' and `stroke the grass'. This man was certainly unique and so writing books was his spare time activity, and the study of the Form School was a spare time activity of this spare time activity. I have recorded this and wait for the assessment of others.
Cheng Muheng of He city in Qianting recorded this in the twenty fourth year of Qian Long.
FengShui is a term strictly referred to as the art of harnessing ShengQi. Looking at a natal chart and predict where is ShengQi and ShaQi and to decide where to sit and face is not FengShui. This is Divination, the art of divinity based on numerology, imagery and Qi. Its method is far reaching ranging from QiMen SanShi to YiGua and BaZi to the very extend of XuanKong DaGua. Yet, since time immemorial, it is considered as part and parcel of FengShui, formerly called ZhaiBu, the Divination of a House.
Modern practitioner may use both arts in synchronicity. As example, they may do a divination before even attempting to visit the site for an audit. This is by mean of opening up a QiMen or a ZiBai Natal Chart and read the ingredient thereof. From the chart they are able to discern where is the incoming Qi, outgoing Qi, ShaQi and where is the best location to locate the main door, thus establishing siting and facing. This is called remote sensing. The customer would be thrilled by the practitioner's ability of clairvoyance and often mistaken as a living angel. However, this is Not FengShui!
Upon reaching the site, a FengShui practitioner will evaluate the capacity of a site by taking into consideration the macro incoming and outgoing Qi, to establish its Qi maps. The same is applied to the immediate external and follow through towards the compound of the property, so that every layers are consistent to a structure. This is the art of harnessing Qi. The interior of the property is arranged to conform to such structure as to allow Qi to flow unobstructed. The art of harnessing is through the Xue, not one but multiples. SanHe method is employ to where Qi begins. SanYuan method is employ to where Qi ends. They are both complementary and these are genuine FengShui and they are not guess work such as divination.
What if the site conditions contradicted the divination outcome? Which take precedent? This often happen. FengShui method is grounded on specific methodology almost scientific in nature. Divination is by virtue of synchronicity and probability almost guess work. Which do you think is likely to bring result?
Point in discussion...
There is case point worth discussing and it is called XianTian SanYuan QiMen DunJia XuanKong DaGua (XTSYQMDJXKDG) what a mouthful words for a simple term of Early Heaven Three Cycle Mysterious Gate Hiding the Jia Mysterious Void Huge Hexagram. Gosh... Gasping for air pronouncing it.
This method is made popular by the late grandmaster Zheng ZiNan hailed from Taiwan who had lived a ripe age of 100 and had built an empire of wealth for his family. His life is the epitome of a true genuine master who prosper himself before others. When he came to Taiwan, he use the term SanYuan DiLi or SanYuan Earth Study to differentiate himself among the peers. He advocated his technique called XieZiFa and the results driven application has impacted the industry of his time. He is among the pioneer to give warranty for his work, unmatched by others. By self-confession, he never disclose his method to anyone outside his family circle. Yet, as we see today, there are so many "clones".
Some of these clones, learnt the similar art from HongKong, similar is the operative word. The late grandmaster ChenBeiSheng was the torch bearer of XuanKong DaGua he claimed as MiaoPai. He advocated the key in applying XKDG is in QMDJ. Therefore, XTSYQMDJXKDG is XieZiFa. Unfortunately, we don't subscribed to this statement.
There are two arms to this method. One is QMDJ and the other XKDG. QMDJ is the art of the Divination and XKDG is the art of Connecting Qi. So, together it is a complete technique.
Banking on the expansive investment of learning this art, many clones started teaching QMDJ in 4 instalments, namely QMDJ-Divination, QMDJ-Life Reading, QMDJ-FengShui and QMDJ-Strategy. Some clones go as far as teaching QMDJ-witchcraft, QMDJ-art of war, QMDJ-hoccuspoccus and so forth. They denied the fact that fundamentally, they are the same - the art of divination.
How to connect the dots?
It begins with the understanding of Heaven Earth and Man. Each has its own natal chart. QMDJ-Life Reading will tell you that QMDJ can be used to read your Life like BaZi. It is even better than ZiPing BaZi, the clones called it BaZi+. Based on your solar date and time of birth, a QMDJ chart is constructed. It is supposed to be uniquely You. The natal chart is fixed, but the palaces are dynamic and it reflects your Destiny. When you add another layer of XKDG, you will get the Hexagram, that is specially and uniquely Your Life Hexagram. This natal chart will form the very basis of You and You must never deviate away from the prescription of this chart, otherwise it is bad omen.
After knowing yourself, you must know what is around you. This is where QMDJ-Divination becomes handy. This aspect aligns traditionally as the Hour School QMDJ, where the chart is derived from the Hour. Interpreting the charts differ among schools but its fundamentals are similar – interplay between host and guest to determine the useful god. Failure in doing so will result in a chaotic reading. When you add another layer of XKDG, you will get the simultaneous application of Purple White Hexagram that is the ultimate usage of the Purple White Scroll or ZiBaiJue. The simultaneous application of QMDJ-Divination with Annual and Replacement stars enable forecasting for any event, property, person and others including the ever familiar Eight Mansions techniques.
Knowing what is around you is insignificant if you do not know how to unlock the secret of QMDJ and XKDG. This is where QMDJ-FengShui becomes handy. Besides the ability to perform “desk-top” FengShui or “remote-sensing” audit to a particular site or property, QMDJ-FengShui coupled with XKDG enable you to connect Qi wherever you please. Your ability in FengShui is no longer confined to the physical existence of Qi but to connect to the mystical abode of Qi so provided in QMDJ. Your ability in Qi connection will be transcended beyond merely receiving good incoming and expelling bad outgoing Qi to tapping to your wealthy neighborhood while living in a not so prosperous neighborhood. Turning misfortune into fortune is what probably coined as XieZiFa within a short time span. It is an art of wizardry, hardly anything one has known before.
Unlocking the Secret of QMDJ XKDG is when you plan and execute your plan according to the will of Heaven including date selections that are not confined to only FengShui date selection but everything. The key is Plan and Execute! This is QMDJ-Strategy. When it is applied to War it is the Art of War. When it is applied to getting rich it is the Art of Wealth. It encompasses all the duration of short, medium and long term plans juggling among the Hour, Day and Year School QiMen. This is divination applied to execution par excellent as the saying goes, if you failed to Plan then plan to Fail and you will NEVER FAIL! In our school it goes hand in hand with QiMen LiuRen simultaneous applications.
Not enough? Call in the ‘X-Men’ from another dimensions. This is traditionally termed FaQiMen. It is the art of both the ‘dark’ and the ‘white’ sides. In StarWars terminology, it is the use of the ‘Force’ between the Jedi Masters and the Sith Lords. Goes very well with any Daoist Lineages be it LiuRen ShenGong, MaoShan ShenGong, ZhenYi ShenGong, LvShan ShenGong and all that you can possibly find and it comes in very handy in Ghost Busting, gambling and ‘robbery’. Incantations and Talismans are the tools to summons the ‘X-Men’ to your assistance via QiMen Five Charms Five Ghosts techniques. In our school it goes hand in hand with QiMen LiuRen simultaneous applications.
Do you still want to learn?
Master Hung HinCheong did an excellent rendition on this topic Lesser XuanKong 5 Elements 小玄空五行 that he termed, grow-in/counter-in 生入剋入 technique in his book entitled, Water water everywhere. However, this is only one interpretation and may not represents the true method. Herewith are the interpretation of the above method in accordance to Master Hung.
Grow-in Counter-in 生入剋入
In the "4MWM" (四大水局) method there is a secondary technique called the "grow-in/counter-in (生入剋入)" technique.
While the Growth, Prosper and Grave formed the core of the "4MWM" method, the "grow-in/counter-in" technique played a supporting role. Many school chose to ignore "grow-in/counter-in" altogether, yet, "grow-in/ counter-in" was very much an integral part of YangGong's teachings, and should not be discarded.
The "grow-in/counter-in" technique operates on a system of 5-elements called the "Lesser XuanKong 5 Elements (小玄空五行)" ("Lesser XK") that has nothing to do with XuanKong DaGua ("XKDG") pioneered by Master Jiang DaHong (蔣大獅).
The "Lesser XK" elements were defined by 6 lines in the "Dragon & Water Classic (龍水經)"' such as:-
LongShuiJing was later renamed "Green Satchel Preface (青囊序)", but the part about the lesser XK elements somehow was omitted. The rationale for these elements has never been fully explained. Some master tried to explain in terms of Yao transformation (爻變) based on the Earth Plate.
The "Dragon Water Classic" state:
Grow-in Counter-in, people by the hundreds; Grow-out Counter-out, people numbers decline!
YangGong classic, "Green Satchel Oracles (青囊奧)" state:
Grow-in & Counter-in called prosperous; descendants rich, noble & attain high office
Whereas Growth, Prosperous and Grave dictate the flow of water, whether Left turning or Right turning, to determine that, the practitioner is to walk out to the point of intersection between the facing axis and the river, and measure the direction of the incoming flow.
The "Lesser XK" element of the incoming water is then based on the verse above, based on the Earth Plate. This "Lesser XK" element is then matched with the SanHe frame, based on the Heaven Plate. These are:
If the "Lesser XK" element of the incoming water grows or counters the SanHe frame, then the selected facing is supported by the incoming water. Conversely, if the SanHe frame grows or counters the incoming water element, then the SanHe frame is weakened.
LongShuiJing said nothing about the same elements, but it may be implied that SanHe frame and incoming water having the same element is deemed negative.
Example: Property facing BingWu (丙午), Heaven Plate SanHe Frame is Fire; and the incoming water enters from Xun (巽) on the Earth Plate, hence "Lesser XK" element Water. Water counters Fire, hence the SanHe frame is enhanced by the incoming water.
In a number of years back, one school has been advocating this method in the purportedly famous Water Dragon Method. The famous "Big Sister" took it and propagated it and the consequences were disastrous. The problem does not stem from the theory but the applications are entirely wrong! You cannot create Water Dragon within your compound. These are "water lizards" or "Cutting Feet". It was also learnt that this method has been brought from Taiwan, where one actually measure the water spout of the artificial water features as the incoming Gua within the "river" as specified above. Upon deeper researched from Taiwanese counterparts, it was learnt that such form the fundamental measurements for a SanYuan technique called QianKunGuoBao or LongMenBaDaJu. In this case, the applications are confined to the natural, not artificial. Yet the operative method is not really standalone, but a subset within the orthodox method of YangGong 4 Major Water Mouths (4MWM), very accurate in giving predictive outcomes without even the need of a LuoPan, as the technique itself aligned the observer as a "LuoPan" itself. Further exploration also revealed that it forms the basis of XuanKong DaGua (XKDG). Has such modification embodied within the work of JiangDaHung's Water Dragon Classic, ShuiLongJing? That may be another tale for another day...
TWO CASES IN MIND
While we are closing up for the Chinese New Year, we ought to clear up a lot of back logs due to our cases at hand that is multiplying by the days. Of these, 2 cases come to mind about the water dragon formula. In accordance to our findings, it makes more problems then to otherwise bring health and prosperity.
What is a water dragon method. According to the principle of Earthly Principle 5 Considerations, DiLi WuJu, a rather offspring of the SanHe methodology, the 5 principles consists of dragons, water, embrace, mountain and spot. Water is only one of the 5 principles and cannot be taken out of context devoid of the other 4 principles. It takes the 5 principles to make it work. So, in other word, water dragon cannot be created.
Now, here is the novelty of the commercialized FengShui practitioners. Some authors even proudly present their works as getting wealthy with water dragons, outlining all the water exit in accordance to the Earthly Principle 5 Considerations. What these authors and practitioners are advocating is none other then building parameter drains around the property. That is where all the problems begin.
Case 1: A lady suffered from intestinal growth. On a Gua imagery level one is able to notice that the parameter drains actually represents her intestines and plants growing out of these drains are intestinal growth, which means cancer of the intestine. Again I am reserving the details on another channel.
Case 2: A gentleman with bad debts. His house is surrounded by these "water dragons" ended up he is living with "water lizards" that siphoned away all his hard earned cash. There is a lot of issues with his investment that does not materialized as promised. Again I am reserving the details on another channel.
Solving these cases are to undo all these "water lizards" and that is all about wasting money and double handling of works. If next time, someone offer you a "water dragon" and you succumbed into their perspectives and enjoyed an about turned of events from bad to worst, you know who to call...
Dragon Water Classic is, now, known as Ancient Scroll Dragon Water Classic 古本龙水经. Being "ancient" we will not be certain as to who wrote the script. Some copy has the first verse, 楊公養老看雌雄, YangGong old age see CiXiong, while others, it simply start with 天下諸書對不同, under Heaven all books are different. On the first assumption, it may have been written by Zheng WenChang 曾文辿, YangGong most senior disciple. Unfortunately, the 7 characters prose, common to the Tang Dynasty literature, are sometimes punctuated by 5, 3, 2 characters prose that pose, such copy may have been "polluted" by others or there are just some missing or illegible characters that has been lost during translation and hand copy from one generation to another. The examples are: -
Item 3-8 seems to have been sub topic to the method prescribed or annotation made by others. Such does not gel well with the obsession of ancient Chinese inclination towards poem over clarity. That is one good reason as to why the Old YangGong method lineage (YangGong GuFa) did not subscribe to this literature. The followings are one of the many copies found in the internet: -
Reviewing this copy of Dragon Water Classic 古本龙水经 and comparing it with QingNanXu 青囊序, there are many areas of inconsistencies namely: -
The followings are the comparative studies between both classics with variants highlighted in red:-
DISCOURSE ON LONGSHUIJING
By changing a single character, it changes the entire meaning, for example: -
By changing the the entire phrase, it presents a new idea for example: -
The remaining script of LongShuiJing provide more ideas and methodology such as Small XuanKong 小玄空 as the followings: -
The remaining script introduces to us an entire method of XuanKong. The first 6 stanzas are the key poems defining the XuanKong elements to the 24 mountains such as: -
If you Google the history of China, you will be greeted by the fact that The Yellow River is said to be the cradle of Chinese civilization. The known Xia Dynasty 夏朝 is believed to be the known first dynasty of China. LienBu (連逋) is way before the first Dynasty of China. It may also predates HuangDi, ShengNong and ChiYou.
Within its chronicles, it is recorded the Supreme Ancient HeTu Lineage 太古河圖代姓.

It is the Heaven and Earth (天地) or the father and mother (父母) to the Supreme Yi (太易). Supreme Yi (太易) is never constant and ever changing. Such movement give rise to the Two Slices (兩儀) of YinYang (陰陽). Its dynamism is creation called the Supreme First (太初) who in return generates the 4 imageries (四象). These 4 imageries (四象) are HeTu (河圖) that is also called the Supreme Essence (太素) of all creations, notably Heaven, Man and Earth Three Talents (三才). Human's existence between Heaven above and Earth below are the chronicles of its lineage called Supreme Ancient (太古) where the maternal lineage are the order.

THE CHINESE (華夏) THEORY OF EVOLUTION (太一生水)
"Inconceivable is the beginning, O disciples, of this faring on. The earliest point is not revealed of the running on, the faring on, of beings, cloaked in ignorance, tied by craving” - Samyutta Nikaya (Buddhist Cannon)."
What it suggests, do not bother to ask what is the origin of life as it will not be understood by those who is bound by ignorance and craving. Therefore, the Chinese simply called it the Ultimate One (太一), without the necessary to define what constitute the One.
Implying that the One, may have arisen from the “First Cause”, it is the so called God created everything. The idea of the almighty God, is strangely, spur provocative philosophical discourse by non other then the maverick, Sir Bertrand Russell in his controversial book, “Why I am NOT a Christian”. He questioned, if God is responsible for the creation of everything, then by the same implication, God must have its own creator. In a nutshell, there is a first of the First Cause ad-infinitum.
The Chinese implied that the One as nothing more than a line (At least that is the pictogram of the Chinese character One), it also implies that the One is a line connecting all the “First Causes”. The idea of connection implies movement, as a stroke of a brush. So, the ultimate stroke is the First Cause. Scientist believes that such stroke represents another controversial idea, the “Big Bang”. The aftermath of such created water. The Chinese theory of Evolution begins with this phrase, The Ultimate One gives birth to water, water in return assisting the Ultimate One (太一生水,水反辅太一) .
The Ultimate One gives birth to water Scripts is believed to be written about 300 BC during the Warring States period on 14 bamboo strips in the Chu script. It was discovered in 1993 in Hubei, Jingmen. It is part of the Guodian Chu Slips (郭店楚簡). Thus, it became the fundamental doctrines for the Daoist art of cause and effects.
If there is a cause, there must be an effect. Water is the effect. The Greek Mythology stated that the world is created by Oceanus (son of Uranus and Gaia) and the Greeks must have a reason to believe in that. From water, the Chinese believes that The Ultimate One gives birth to water, water in return assisting the Ultimate One, therefore establishing Heaven, in return establishing Earth (太一生水,水反辅太一,是以成天. 天反辅太一,是以成地.). At this point, 2 new ideas emerged, Heaven and Earth. It was also said, the Chinese folklore has the Giant PanGu (盤古) separating Heaven and Earth, within his anatomy, landforms were shaped and rivers were excavated. Very strange that the Chinese paints his personification as a Giant similar to the Greek mythology, Titan race of Giant Atlas. More strange is in his given name PanGu (盤古) denoting “ancient plate”.
This “plate” is referring to the Milkyway Galaxy, as modern sciences revealed it to be a resemblance of a Disc! From one point it resemble a circle, the Chinese called, the Ultimate (太), while from another angle, a slim shape Disc in the form of One (一). The noble act of the Giant PanGu (盤古) separating Heaven and Earth, marks the beginning of evolution sometimes called, Heaven and Earth fixed position (天地定位). As he decomposed, his flesh and blood turn to mountains and streams which are also known as Mountain and Stream same Qi (山泽通气), so on so forth. The script TaiYi Sheng Shui states, Heaven and Earth, assisting thus, therefore establishing Gods (spiritual enlightenment), in return establishing YinYang (Duality) (天地复相辅也,是以成神明. 神明复相辅也,是以成阴阳.).
Again, the term ShenMing (神明) is rather sketchy. This term has 2 compound words. Shen (神) can mean spirit, gods or unknown forces. Ming (明) comprising sun and moon denoting enlightenment, wisdom or knowing. When both words are conjoined, it has multiple meanings but in this context it simply denotes the seeds of human evolution. The Chinese folklore continues to say, Nuwa (女媧) created humans from the mud of the Yellow River, therefore the Chinese has a yellowish skin texture. Strange similarity from the Book of Genesis, Adam is made from earth of Eden and Eve is part of Adam, personification of the mother Earth as a goddess, in this case, half human half serpent forms liked the Greek Mythology, Medusa.
Another idea of ShenMing (神明) borrowed from the notion that states, if there is a beginning, there must be an end. If Big Bang is construed as a beginning, Big Crunch is the end. Upon the ending of the world system, lives on Earth parishes and on the other hand reborn as spiritual entities ShenMing (神明). The world system evolved to regenerate itself and when the conditions are met, such as Fire and Water does not shoot each other (水火不相射), these entities which have no gender, live within the water. When the surface of the water is exposed to the heat of the sun and coldness of the night, a crust is formed and became the sustenance of these spiritual entities. With the constant consumption, these entities take forms of single cell organism, manifesting as crude beings on a new world. This is the beginning of life.
The scripts continue to say, YinYang (Duality), assisting thus, therefore establishing the four seasons, in return establishing cold and warmth. Cold and warmth, assisting thus, therefore establishing wet and dry, in return establishing birth and dead (阴阳复相辅也,是以成四时. 四时复相辅也,是以成凔热. 凔热复相辅也,是以成湿燥. 湿燥复相辅也,成岁而止.), so on and so forth. The ending words, in return establishing birth and dead (成岁而止) has multiple implications. First, the word Sui (岁) means age and Zhi (止) means stop. Compounding bring forth the idea of life and death. The order of things is nothing more than a complete cycle of growth phases rather than the misconstrued productive or weakening cycles.
Saying thus, it laid the foundation of HeTu.

Why must Yang takes left to right and Yin takes right to left? A matter of coriolis effects?
Perhaps, in the Northern Hemisphere, the compass is pointing South and an adjustment must be made while in the Southern Hemisphere instead, as the compass ought to have pointed North! All our known SanYuan theory must have been reversed and screwed up for the reference point is always in the context of the Northern Hemisphere... OMG! Is that why the application goes so wrong?
What may seen to be a displaced disc of enclosures are actually stacking above one another. What does this imply?
In the another words, mountain is construe as Yin or mountain is construe as Yang? Water is construe as Yin or water is construe as Yang? Better, when XieZi changes, Mountain are not construed as Mountain, Water is not construe as Water. Mountain can be taken as Water; Water can be taken as Mountain.

The early history of Chinese civilizations are all legendary. This book acknowledged the existence of Titans, believed to have been a cross between super Aliens and Dinosaurs. Characters liked, PanGu 盘古, ShenNong 神農, NuWa 女娲, FuXi 伏羲, HuangDi 皇帝, ChiYou 蚩尤, XingTian 刑天, XuanNu 玄女, GongGong 共工 and a whole lot more are non human, super beings who has the most advanced knowledge of the stars and the Galaxy utilizing the most advanced vehicles propelled by nuclear energy. The first recorded battle of Zhoulu 涿鹿之战 is an epic proportion of nuclear warfare. But why are the Titans fighting among themselves but to conquer the very natural resources of planet Earth - Plutonium and Uranium. Coincidentally, HuangDi won over ChiYou, not otherwise, all the Chinese would have been a generation of a cross between a Bull and a Reptile with Green Skin and not Yellowish as what is seen today.
The Great Flood happened in a sudden due to the shift of the Himalayan platonic mass risen almost suddenly creating the roof of the world. Gun executed his plan with the atomic bomb, flatten the entire Tibetan plateau forcing the water to flow South. He succeeded but at the expanse of his clan's men. Many died due to the atomic implosion of the sub platonic strata and the Emperor is not very happy with the news. He was beheaded for that crime!
This is also known as inheriting the throne not through hereditary but to the worthy one. Unfortunately, Yu successors were despot and subsequently replaced by the notion of the Mandate of Heaven, the very tale of FengShen YanYi 封神演義, the making of the Gods and Deities. That we leave it for another time.
