Blind Faith in Geomantic Omens
There was once a man who had a strong faith in geomantic omens. He consulted the geomancer concerning all signs beneficial or unfortunate.
One day, while he was sitting at the foot of a wall, the wall collapsed on top of him. He cried, "Help!" His servants came over to have a look and said, "Master, be patient. Let's ask the geomancer if it is a good omen to move the breaks upon you."
