Ancient Chinese philosophy and astrology believed that nature is composed of five elements: gold, wood, water, fire, and soil.
These five types of elements have different properties. Fire is hot, which has an upward nature; the soil has the nature of peace and existence; gold has the nature of killing and astringency; water has the nature of cold and moisturizing.
With the rise and fall of these five elements, nature has changed, affecting not only human's destiny but also the circulation of the universe.
