Yin Yang and Five Earth Ideology is an exposition of creation and a transformation of the sky and earth. The earth consists of wood, fire, soil, gold and water.

The arrangement of wood, fire, soil and gold and water is according to the circulation of nature. For example when wood grows, it needs water, fire needs a tree(wood), the ashes which follow the fire become soil and gold comes from the soil. This is a perfect harmony. If any one element crosses another it is called a conflict relationship.
