There once was a man who had a superstitious faith in geomantic omens.
He consulted the geomancer beforehand concerning all signs beneficial. or
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, "Be patient, Master. Let's ask the geomancer if it is a good omen to
break the ground today."
