五大 The five elements of being are, in ascending order of power: Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Void.
地 Chi, meaning “Earth”, represents the hard, solid objects of the world.
火 Ka, meaning “Fire”, represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world.
風 Fū, meaning “Wind”, represents things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement.
水 Sui, meaning “Water”, represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world.
空 Kū, most often translated as “Void”, but also meaning “sky” or “Heaven”, represents those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy. It is the quintessential creative energy of the world. A warrior properly attuned to the Void can sense their surroundings and act without thinking, and without using their physical senses.
