In China, the first celebrated exponent of the five-element theory was Tsou Yen (350 - 270 BC): 1. WOOD 2. FIRE 3. EARTH 4. METAL 5. WATER. The 5 energies are symbolized as wood, which as fuel gives rise to fire, which creates ash and gives rise to earth, which in its mines contains metal, which attracts dew and so gives rise to water, and this in turn nourishes wood. When balanced these are the healthy relationships of the Five Elements: Water extinguishes Fire, Fire melts Metal, Metal cuts and shapes Wood, Wood can contain Earth, Earth absorbs Water.
