The idiom Jing Wei Fen Ming has a long history that can be traced back to a sentence in Farm Song from the Bei Songs of the Chinese ancient poetry The Book of Odes.
Muddy as the Wei River becomes,
as the Jing River joins.
Clear as it was
the water flows the islet around.
It means that the two rivers look completely different, because one is clear and the other is muddy.
The Wei River which is the largest tributary of the Yellow River, rises in Niaoshu Mountain in Weiyuan County, Gansu Province, forms the Weihe Alluvial Plain, and finally enters the Yellow River at the junction of three provinces Shaanxi, Henan and Shanxi. Coming down from the north to the south, the Jing River, as the largest tributary of the Wei River, enters the Wei River at the Chuanzhang Village, Gaoling District in north Xi’an, and thus creates a natural landscape as the clear distinction between the Jing River and the Wei River.
To our surprise, by perceiving water frequencies from both rivers, we find that the distinct colors are actually related to two separate subterranean reptilian species. Indeed, as the above picture shows, the yellow water has a vibration frequency of 384.3Hz from the moth reptilians, while the green one, 367.3Hz from locust reptilians.
