Welcome to China’s Living System
China’s Living System.com is the global source for information about a revolutionary breakthrough in Chinese science and thought that never made it into the history books. One reason for this was likely the political instability that plagued mid-nineteenth century China when the system first appeared in the Beijing Imperial Palace. Another was that the social channels in Chinese feudal society through which advanced studies flowed were chiefly restricted within secretive lineages. For thousands of years in China, traditional lineages with the master-apprentice/disciple centered social culture performed the function of what is now the modern university.
