Dear Andrew,

Last two months I was busy in 'translating'( with notes for 'rotations'
and 'reflections') H. A. Simon's The Sciences of the Artificial and C.
Alexander's Notes on the Synthesis of Form. So I opened this mail quite
late. Nevertheless I think better late than never.

I checked and learned the word Chinese 'listening' with one of most
authetic dictionary back around 2000 years ago.

Yes, the system of Chinese character 'listening' ( In Taiwan and Hongkong,
we still use it)is composed with five parts. But to interpreting it
part-wise might be misleading.

use your ears to 'get' the 'nuance'of it( or things), like listening to
the bell music).

Honest speaking, I also learned a lesson in the systhesis of the form or
the art of the artificial.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hanching Chung
