Journal 23 December 2014 - Editorial

Welcome to the 23rd edition. The Chinese phrase on the cover says: 百花齊放– bǎihuā qífàng – let the hundred schools contend. It refers to a golden age of thought during the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods of ancient China. An artist in Taiwan did a calligraphy of these four characters especially for the journal. The contributions in this edition demonstrate a richness of thought, a daring to put these ideas into practice and to describe the results. There are differences in style, tone, authority and understandings of theory. The multiple sets of ripples in a pond are an image of the hundred ways we connect. Interpenetration can be perceived; each set of ripples taking the other into itself. Notice multiple occurrences of the AANZPA symbol.
