A bookstore in the Sogo department store.

With a statue of Chinese polymath (astronomer, mathematician, poet, inventor) Zhang Heng at the Tapei Astronomical Museum.

 Go to the religion section of the bookstore and read some Buddhist books. In no time you will find that Chinese discovered the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle thousands of years before Heisenberg.
