The I ching hexagrams
    #3606553 - 01/10/05 03:52 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hello,













I am here so I can tell you about the I ching hexagrams (pronouced E ching).

This is the system of the cosmos of positive (yang) and negative (yin), vice versa.

The interesting thing is that the last of the 64 hexagram is the beginning, the restart of the cycle, it is titled as 'before completion' (Wei Chi).

okay, cool. as a token of my esteem for this favour of information, I will in turn provide you with some arcane information of my own: there is a book, very ancient. it is called the Bible. everything in it is true, and if you don't believe in it you'll go to Hell. seriously, check it out man. seriously.

it is a very well constructed system.

one can learn all they need about divination by observing themselves interpreting the i-ching.

the layout is excellent, symmetric in a way.
each paragraph is definitive but worded in a totally open way so that it can both:

1) teach an open hearted approach and
2) serve as the basis of divination.

nothing else among all cultures has been devised quite that way.
