The word 'geomancy' covers two completely distinct areas. The original use of the word, dioinatory geomancy, was a technique which used sixteen figures composed of dots to foretell the future.
Telluric geomancy is a comparatively recent use of the word to designate both the beliefs of feng-sbui (concerning the interrelation of man, his buildings and tombs with the life force, or cb'i, which flows through his environment) and its recently evolved western counterpart concerned with the study of megalithic alignments and ley lines.
This work is concerned solely with dioinatory geomancy. However, a second volume on [eng-sbui and telluric geomancy is currently in preparation.
