Let's make an arrow:
Were we to make another arrow on this page, it could be in the same orientation as the first arrow
or it could be in a different orientation, perhaps straight up
or maybe midway between straight and parallel or anything in between. When it is not in the same orientation, we call the difference between the two lines, the angle.
Around any given point, there are 360 ways another line can sit in relation to it, or 360 angles (differentiated by degrees °). When you think in three dimensions, each of the original 360 degrees contains an additional 360 degrees expanding around it.
Each degree around our bodies contains energy that is entirely unique from the degree above it, below it, or beside it. As it turns out, each angle of energy flowing through the body resonates with a unique cell or tissue inside the body. One angle relates to lymphatic vessels and another to skin. One relates to capillaries and another to nerves. Every angle is a unique fingerprint for its associated tissue.
Each tissue of the body corresponds to a specific angle in space; this is a primary building block of Fu Xi Wen. These tissue-angles (T°) exist in three dimensions, so they consist of two components: an horizontal angle paired with a vertical angle. When you move energy in a particular tissue-angle, the associated tissue is directly affected even – crazy as it may seem -- if you treat the angle with sound or other tools off the body. This off-body effect happens because the energy that is treated is so small it easily moves inside of us as if we were made mostly of space – which, in fact, we are. In effect, it works because our bodies are more connected to our universe than we can consciously perceive given the limitations of our sensory organs.
If you think this off-body explanation is rubbish, there is a more terrestrial explanation that could explain the same effects. When we treat people with Fu Xi Wen, we use the same sound frequencies over and over again. When we focus these sound frequencies at different tissue-angles, we actually change the original frequencies on a very subtle level so that when they reach our bodies, they have a microscopically different amplitude, frequency, pitch, and wavelength. Our bodies are fluid and when the sound hits our skin, the fluid of our bodies vibrates internally. For whatever unknown reason in the Western paradigm, each tissue of the body responds to a different sound shape that is created by taking the same sounds and shifting them in this way. This effect is well known in physics. It is called “resonance”.
Sound engineers may one day be able to take this Western explanation and create a more focused treatment tool that plays a unique sound for each tissue, but for now we must use the same frequencies directed at specific tissue-angles to have our treatment effects.
The two angles of a tissue-angle are differentiated as follows:
The horizontal angle relates to a compass direction. In other words, the angle is always parallel with the ground but can move East/West/North/South. This angle is considered S.0° at due South, N.0° at due North , W.0° at due West and E.0° at due East. Within each compass direction, there are +45° degrees clockwise and -45° counterclockwise. So, the angle for skeletal muscle Yin is W.+10° (10° clockwise from direct West) and skeletal muscle Yang is E.-10° (10° counterclockwise from direct East). Clockwise and counterclockwise are determined looking straight down towards the ground. (All tissues have two tissue-angles, one that corresponds with the Yin substance of the tissue and one that corresponds with the Yang function of the tissue. For best results and for safety sake always use both).
(As an aside, I was originally going to create a horizontal model based on 360° from due South, with West at 90°, North at 180° and West at 270°. But after playing around with it for a while, I realized this gets confusing when describing the larger angles. I believe the compass model I am using above can be implemented more quickly without doing advanced algebra in one's head.)
The vertical angle relates to the tissue-angle's relationship to the ground. This vertical angle is divided from V.-90° to V.+90°. The vertical angle is exactly parallel with the ground at V.0°. Whereas, V.+90° points straight up from the ground and V.-90 points straight down.
When you put the two angles together you get a unique fingerprint for a tissue. For instance, W.+20° (20° clockwise of direct West) V.+5° (5° above parallel to the ground) relates to the Yin epidermis of the skin whereas W.+20° V.-5° (the same horizontal angle with a vertical angle pointed just below parallel to the ground) relates to the Yin dermis of the skin. The Yang epidermis is E.-20° V.+5° and Yang dermis is E.-20° V.-5°. (In the Anatomy Guide, you will find an altogether different way to locate the epidermis and dermis that is even better. But this shortcut works quite well.)

The Process of Discovery
Originally, I discovered these tissue-angles through experimentation with acupuncture needles and their angles of insertion. The process was simplified greatly when I realized how the lines of force divided according to acupuncture theory. This is explained in the Intermediate skill level. Essentially, these lines of force follow a Five Element pattern. Each Element has an associated tissue related to it. Given these underlying principles, I was able to make quick progress in determining the tissue-angles. Once hypothesized, I tested these angles on myself, my family, and my friends. When I was more confident in their authenticity, I used them in the clinic where they have proved effective time and time again.
While I have made huge headway, the
process of associating angles with tissues is far from complete,
especially at the level of individual angles. In the tissue-angle
chart I present the tissue-angle as a fixed number. In fact, given
the current state of Fu Xi Wen specificity, the tissue angle is more
of a range of angles around that point. When I treat people, I hold
my sound tool in my hand and I work a range around that angle. It is
Cells that move independently in the body, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, lymphatic fluid, plasma, platelets, and so on can be treated in an horizontal circle around the vertical angle V.-85° (5° off of straight down). Each individual horizontal angle corresponds with a unique cell type – but each individual cell type still needs to be determined. While I have a general sense that certain lymphatic cells can be found around N.+10° V.-85° (10° clockwise of due North and pointing almost straight down). I do not as yet know the exact horizontal angle where neutrophils can be found versus T cells versus B cells. While I know I can discover these cells by applying the Five Element relationships in analyzing the actions and functions of these individual cells, this detail work will either require a lifetime of my own exploration, or the collaboration of other pure Fu Xi Wen scientists.
The ultimate goal is to map out every single angle in 360° around the body. I call it “The Human Angle Project”. This project is accessible at: http://www.humanangleproject.com. But I do not expect to accomplish this in my lifetime -- not without a lot of help. Nevertheless, the good news is that many of the big picture tissue-angles have been identified. Additionally, the tools that we use are not focused like laser beams. Sound disperses in every direction with our tools, it's just that it has its strongest effect in the angle selected. This means that even if we do not have an exact angle for a specific tissue, treating the big picture angle will still have its desired effect.
As an interesting digression, the angles follow an evolutionary course. They start at the beginning of time, when all life existed as unicellular creatures. As these creatures evolved internally and externally, new tissues were created inside increasingly complex organisms. As new tissues were created, the angles that effected them grew higher.
The first angle, a horizontal circle in the vertical plane of V.-85°, relates to individual cells. The second angle, V.-50° corresponds with various forms of connective tissue. The third, V.-40°, relates to passive communication between multiple cells. The fourth, V.-25°, relates to the aggregation of cells into groups. The fifth, V.-10°, corresponds with the interior boundaries that define cell groups. The sixth, V.0°, relates to structures these cell groups create. The seventh, V.+10°, relates to exterior boundaries along these structures. The eighth, V.+25°, corresponds with interstitial cells between these structures. The ninth, V.+40°, relates to active communication between different structures. The tenth, V.+50°, relates to flexible connections between structures. The eleventh, V.+60°, corresponds with increasingly powerful movements between structures. The twelfth, V.+70°, relates to exterior boundaries. The thirteenth, V.+80°, relates to exterior structures. And the fourteenth, V.+85°, relates to flowing communications between members of a species.
You can use this information diagnostically. If a person has a neurological problem communicating with members of the species, such as with autism, consider the possibility that the problem can be treated using the correct compass angle at the vertical angle of V.+85°.
