IKGF Research Project:

The synchronic relationship between Pluto's revolution and alteration of China's dynasties

Curriculum Vitae

Dongrui Yang graduated from Peking University in 2011 with a BSc and MSc in mathematics, and received another MA from Chinese University of Hong Kong in Religious Studies in 2019. His first book, entitled Dialogue on First Philosophy, explores the synchronic relationship between Pluto, Uranus, Neptune and human history. This book results from his findings about the relationship between Pluto's revolution and alternation of China's dynasties: for instance, all the beginning years of the Tang Dynasty (618), Southern Song Dynasty (1127), Ming Dynasty (1368) and Qing Dynasty (Later Jin, 1616) are around the time of Pluto in Aries. Through this research, he realized the importance of Pluto, Uranus, and Neptune. In the next few years, he collected materials, and gradually believed that they represented the key factors in human nature-- Eros (Pluto); Idea (Uranus); Faith, Hope and Love (Neptune). The research around them is believed to be crucial to understanding the concept of heaven (Tian 天).
