Fab 11 contradicts ancient Chinese wisdom
The town changes but the well does not change contradicted
A few years ago, someone pointed us to the ancient wisdom contained in Chinese oracle the I Ching (Legge edition). He said that many businessmen in the orient used this oracle to make their business decisions. In Japan, in particular, the oracle, which uses yarrow stalks, is well esteemed. After his advice, we bought the English translation of the text and were puzzled by such phrases as "You let your magic tortoise go." What, we puzzled, was a magic tortoise and was it very fast? Another phrase, however, seemed to make sense to us. "The town changes but the well does not change." Artesian wells notwithstanding, ground water nevertheless, the phrase makes sense. Amazingly enough, this ancient gem of wisdom has been contradicted big time by fab plants. For example, Albuquerque town council is livid about Fab 11 for using up so much of its water. And Palm Springs, where Intel holds its Developer Jamboree, is in jeopardy because the aquifer in the desert will run out in about 2003. We travelled in our little bus from the Winyard Hotel in Palm Springs to the famous airport (which has a micro putting green in its centre) accompanied by eight Intel techies who all shook their heads and ponytails where appropriate and to a man and a woman said: "So stupid, so dim." So ancient Chinese wisdom is contradicted by Lintel, the combination of Linux and Intel which anagrammed is Lentil. ® Register Fact Fo Hi is the Chinese god of happiness, so giving rise to the phrase: "Fo Hi's a jolly good fellow".
