Chapter 24
    #4568636 - 08/23/05 12:10 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

"Chapter 24" by Pink Floyd

A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return.
The seven is the number of the young light
It forms when darkness is increased by one.
Change returns success
Going and coming without error.
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset.
The time is with the month of winter solstice
When the change is due to come.
Thunder in the other course of heaven.
Things cannot be destroyed once and for all.
Change returns success
Going and coming without error.
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset, sunrise.
A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return.
The seven is the number of the young light
It forms when darkness is increased by one.
Change returns success
Going and coming without error.
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset, sunrise.

This a song written by Syd Barrett that is on Floyd's first album. Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Some of you know that the lyrics are almost word for word with chapter 24 of the I Ching.

I dont know much about this book besides what I've read about the song lyrics. Can anyone tell me more about the I Ching?

Also, what are your interpretations of Chapter 24? I believe it is talking about the apocalypse or something along those lines.

i also believe it is talking about the apocalypse....
for some reason...i started seeing the number 24 all over the place last year...after my first major spiritual experience...
now...i believe...half believe...because i think i am part dillusional/shiziod....
that 24 represents the year 2004...and the next seven years afterwards are the apocaplypse...and in 2012 will be the change...maybe...alien first encounter...when we have to unite as a globe...and start fighting evil aliens instead of evil terrorists.

I think I'm going to go to the library now and hopefully find a good translation of it

Chapter 24 of I Ching

"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

Could probably be interpreted on a more personal level though. Personal change (giant leap).

The Norwegian word for destruction is "?deleggelse". Literally translated this means to "lay desolate/waste". Blank pages. Tearing down structures making room for new grounds.

I Ching is pretty weird....I didn't know it was used for fortune telling.
