While the yang part is recorded and constitutes the mainstream opinion of the historian, its yin side is always overlooked, speculated and most of the time sidelined and distorted, though its effect is equally as potent as the yang. That is why i choose the dark side of the history - the yin part of our past

Trying to conduct a polls on your interest and specialisation.
My specialty is jade and jade culture. I also have a deep related interest in the traditions concerning the calender, festivals, the long or dragon, and ancient oral stories and legends. My interest in the Neolithic origins of Chinese Chinese culture is related to the above.
Go with the flow the river knows.

also Song socioeconomic history. As an alternative-history buff, I can't resist scenarios where China beats Europe to an industrial revolution

I don't know where I specialise in...........maybe I'm just interested in ancient Chinese history....or ancient history in general.
Any aspect of history that enables this Cardinal to play the ["Strategy is Dao"] game
