- I CHING PHILOSOPHY:
Chinese Laws of Creativity and Wisdom. The I Ching, or Book of
Changes, may be the oldest book of the earth; it is certainly one of our greatest
treasures of wisdom. As Confucius said, by following the counsels of the book, and
studying it continuously,we can attain creative awareness in every situation. This web is
dedicated to assisting in that life long process. It is designed for the moderate to
- CHANCE AND
CHOICE: a compendium of Ancient and Modern Wisdom Revealing the Meaning and
Significance of the Myth of Science. This book connects the latest scientific theories
with the oldest spiritual insights. The whole spectrum of human knowledge is synthesized
to reveal the spiritual significance of the dominant belief system of modern times, the
Myth of Science.
- Richard Wilhelm's Home
Page. Richard Wilhelm is the Marco Polo of the inner world of
China. He, more than any other, is responsible for opening up to the West the vast
spiritual heritage of China and thus all of Asia. He translated the great philosophical
works from Chinese into German, where they have in turn been translated into the other
major languages of the world, including English.
- The Image of the Cosmos in the I Ching - The Yi-globe. The Yi-globe is a spherical structure constructed from the 64 hexagrams.
This arrangement perfectly reflects the image of the world: as Chinese
people might imagine the origin, the make-up, and the operation of the
universe sometime before the first millennium BC. Moreover, because of
the three-dimensional arrangement, it throws new light on the whole I
Ching. Thus, all the readers of the Book - the adherents of Taoism in
the first place - can get new, specific information from here.
The Yi-globe also resolves a much-discussed question: Where did the King
Wen's sequence originate?
- The Oracle - Journal of
the I Ching Society in London The Oracle
was founded in 1995 as the journal of the I Ching Society in London, under the editorship
of William Fancourt, with Steve Moore joining as co-editor soon after. The Oracle
is published irregularly but approximately twice a year, with a minimum of 40 pages per
issue. The contents include articles, book reviews, correspondence and news on all aspects
of the Yi Jing (I Ching), including divination and synchronicity, the history of
the book and its use (both ancient and modern), its cosmology and structure, Jungian and
other psychological interpretations, computer-related and mathematical approaches,
bibliographic information, and so forth.

- Proving the I Ching.
Yes! In the pages that follow you will find four arguments with empirical data that shows
the I Ching does not give random answers to the questions it is asked. It gives answers
that have meaning.Now to all of us that have used this tool this is really no surprise.
But haven't you at sometime wondered if there was some way to prove this to all your
disbelieving friends? Especially, the scientists among them, who quibble with the
irrationality of random chance being able to provide a meaningful answer to a question
asked? - by Tony Granillo.
- Styles of Human Behavior Within a
Hypercubic Paradigm. With addendum on correlation with I Ching. Perhaps the most
attention-getting formulations in the study of mankind are the arrays of typologies that
sensitize us to human and socio-cultural variability. Most of these typologies would seem
to fall into two categories. First are the contrasting contexts for our problems (e. g.,
organizational, emotional or moral ones), and second are the contrasting styles of our
responses to such problems (e. g., flexible, rigid or yielding). - by Paul Oren.

the most prominent books in the history of Oriental culture is the I Ching, usually called
the Book of Changes. Since the time of Confucius it has never lost its importance, either
as a book of divination or as one of Oriental philosophy. Beside its importance in
Oriental studies, the I Ching has been invaluable in the history of philosophy, religion
and influence in modern Western thought. by Charlie Higgins

fact we are a completely new person every seven years. Cycles are eternal in nature"

Relationships between the Chinese I Ching Hexagrams Each of the 64 hexagrams around
the circle illustrates a particular human condition described in highly metaphorical
classical commentaries. Each condition can transform into other conditions as implied by
the lines across the diagram. In this way the hexagrams and relationships portray the
complete pattern of potential changes to the human condition. This pattern, and the
commentaries may therefore be used experimentally to explore the relevance of this map for

Book of Changes (IC+) This site demonstrates the template through a usable and
detailed exposition of the Book of Changes (I Ching), traditionally an ancient Chinese
method of predicting, as well as summarizing the more 'scientific'-biased maps including
Mathematics, the MBTIŽ, and Physics; all of which use dichotomy (pairs of extremes e.g.
yin/yang, hot/cold, firm/soft, wave/particle) as a method of mapping. IC+ is so called
since it has emerged from an innovative analysis of the traditional Book of Changes AKA
The I Ching. This analysis started in the realm of Psychology and Cognitive Science (my
background is in computers) and was based on the question as to how the so-called
'esoteric' disciplines still maintained a degree of 'value' in a culture that is strongly
science-biased - by Chris Lofting.
- BIO-CHING A combination
of the biorhythms and the I Ching, thus "Bio-Ching". Every combination of the
three bio-rhythms has a corresponding Hexagram. This enables you to know what Hexagram is
active for you on any particular day along with the level of your biorhythmic energies.
Introduction to the Theory of Blown-ups. I will summarize the current situation and
the future of the theory of blown-ups. Beside explaining the realisticity of objective
matters contained in the concept of blown-ups, we point out that this concept offers an
opportunity for the mergence of the Eastern and the Western thoughts and a challenge to
the conventional beliefs. It reveals both positive and negative confirmations of
theoretical research, is helpful for the deepening of theoretical research and embodies a
wide range of applicability. - by Jeffrey Forrest.

reason I am only including the hexagrams that I have actually received during the
research phase of the project.
- The Philosophy of Tao. The
important difference between the Tao and the usual idea of God is that whereas God
produces the world by making (wei), the Tao produces it by "not-making"
(wu-wei)--which is approximately what we mean by "growing." Because the natural
universe wor ks mainly according to the principles of growth, it would seem quite odd to
the Chinese mind to ask how it was made. If the universe were made, there would of course
be someone who knows how it is made. But a universe which grows utterly excludes the po
ssibility of knowing how it grows in the clumsy terms of thought and language, so that no
Taoist would dream of asking whether the Tao knows how it produces the universe. For it
operates according to spontaneity, not according to plan. But spontaneity is not by any
means a blind, disorderly urge, a mere power of caprice. A philosophy restricted to the
alternatives of conventional language has no way of conceiving an intelligence which does
not work according to plan, according to a (one-at-a-time) order of thought.
- Patterning: Alternation
between complementary policy conditions. "Transformative Approaches Project"
report from UIA. The vital point that emerges from the Chinese perspective of the previous note is that it is not
sufficient to conceive of organizational conditions in isolation, as is the prevalent
tendency among Western networkers. The processes of change in which a policy cycle is
embedded, or to which it responds, require that the policy cycle consider itself in a
state of transience within a set of potential conditions.
- Patterning Transformative
Change. UIA. It is debatable whether Western-style organization has reached the limits
of its ability to improve its "effectiveness". Even if this is not the case, it
is possible that new insights can be derived from non-Western approaches. These would have
the merit of breaking out of the currently criticized constraints of
"eurocentric" modes of thought. For example, the above challenge can be usefully
clarified by an exercise in adapting the insights of the Book of Changes. As noted by R G
H Siu (1968): "For centuries, the I Ching has served as a principal guide in China on
how to govern a country, organize an enterprise, deal with people, conduct oneself under
difficult conditions, and contemplate the future. It has been studied carefully by
philosophers like Confucius and men of the world like Mao Tse-tung." For this reason
the popularity of its (ab)use as an oracle should not be confused with the philosophy and
insight embodied in its structure. With the benediction of C G Jung, it has achieved wide
popularity in the West over the past decades.
- The Holy Qur'an: The
Judgement Day Book Of the mathematically coded spiritual systems of thought, two are
most prominent:the I Ching or Book of Changes, originally developed in China, and basedon
a system of 64 (16 x 4 ) six-line 'hexagrams,' and the Tzolkin or SacredCount of the Maya.
While the mathematical structure of the I Ching is flawless,its commentaries have
accumulated over millennia, and the text is oftenobscure. Nonetheless, knowledge of the
numerology of the I Ching may behelpful in 'reading' the Qur'an and expanding its
subliminally coded messages. - by Pacal Votan.
- ORION TECHNOLOGY AND OTHER
SECRET PROJECTS. It was a project that evolved out of the Philadelphia Project. it was
a project that the Navy did in the 1930's and 1940's in an attempt to make ships
invisible. They threw the switch one eventful day and the ship went into hyperspace. They
had all sorts of problems with the people on the boat. It was a huge success as well as a
huge failure - then they shelved it. Around 1947 it was decided to re-activate the project
and it was moved to Brookhaven National Laboratories with Dr. John Von Neumann and his
associates. Out of Phoenix I came Stealth technology, which I cannot talk about because of
my job. It also produced all sorts of energetic little toys like the radiosonde. by

areas alone. It is this that I want to relate to the inquirer. The information here-in

- The Book of the Eight
Changes: Universal Cycles and the Trigrams. Whenever two opposed forces act upon a
thing (unless that thing happens to be at the place where the forces are exactly
balanced), the thing will oscillate between the extremes (as does a pendulum or weight on
a spring). Such cycles between opposites are everywhere in the world, from the wheel of
the year to the alchemical rotation of elements to processes of growth and decline -
by John Opsopaus.
- Swirling Chaos/Cosmos(middle).
The 'swirls' in the background of this site are like the swirl in the 2nd page below
(Cosmos/Chaos NEWS), which came from the early chaos and turbulence theory of the 70s,
showing that there were orderly patterns following genral mathematical principles even in
a random process of swirling a liquid of suspended particles. Such a natural swirl (or
whorl, or vortex) looks very much like the whirling Yin/yang figure that has been handed
down through the ages from the orient, and this paper relates that to the derivation of
the bagua trigrams and also to the planetary patterns and zodiacal orienting of the
seasons, years and directions, just as some of the ancient myths hint.
- The Eternal Philosophy of
Chaos (middle). For several thousand years it has seemed obvious that the basic nature
of the universe is extreme complexity, inexplicable disorder; that mysterious, tangled
magnificence popularly known as Chaos. The poetic Hindus believed the universe was a
dreamy dance of illusion (maya). The paradoxical, psycho-logical Buddhists spoke of a void
too complex;maybe a trillion times too complex; to be grasped by the human A-B-C-1-2-3
wordprocessing system (mind). Chinese poet-philosopher Lao Tse sardonically reminded us
that the tao is forever changing complexities at light speed, elusive and inaccessible to
our fingers and thumbs laboriously tapping letters on our alphanumeric keyboards and
mind-operating systems. - by Timothy Leary
- The Challenge of Synchronicity.
Synchronicity experiences, even if shrouded in mystery and
separated from us by a chasm of time, usually hold extreme importance for us. Although the
unreliable bridge of memory is our primary connection to them, they continue to shape our
lives long after they occur. Let's define Carl Jung's much abused term of synchronicity by
beginning with a first-person account of such an experience. This anonymous story, along
with another one I discuss later, is taken from my recent book, Synchronicity, Science,
and Soul-Making, which inspires this article. Both stories are in the words of the
protagonists. - by Victor Mansfield.
Complexity Threshold. About four and sixth tenths
billion years ago, the swirling cloud of interstellar gas circling the Sun condensed into
planets. In the inner solar system, two planets formed that were similar enough in size
and mass to be called sister worlds, Venus and E arth--Gaia.  During the next few
hundreds of billions of years, lighting and ultraviolet light from the Sun began to break
apart the simple hydrogen-rich molecules of the primitive atmosphere on Gaia. Fragments of
these molecules recombined into more and more complex molecules which precipitated out of
the atmosphere and dissolved in the oceans. The complexity and interaction of these
molecules continued to increase until primitive organic compounds formed as molecules made
sophisticated links--bonds--with each othe r. Eventually, a threshold was crossed and
molecules arose that were able to make crude reproductions of themselves. These were the
earliest ancestors of deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA, the building-block of biological life.

- The Certainty of Uncertainty
- I Ching. The Certainty of Uncertainty is
a revolutionary new theory that intends to encompass all of existence, to create a
comprehensive understanding of Life's most fundamental and elusive mysteries. It orders
our common sense ideas, and the ideas of the great philosophers, in a counter-intuitive
yet familiar framework of understanding. I hope to show that there is a purpose to life,
and that our existence has a meaning that we can not only comprehend, but actively
participate in. By doing so we can live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. - by

- The I Ching. The I Ching,
or "Classic of Changes", is an ancient Chinese oracle, one of the five
classics of Confucianism, traditionally used for divination and as a moral, philosophical,
and cosmological text. Yet great as it's relevance to an understanding of ancient
and modern Chinese thought is, the I Ching goes beyond that, giving an insight into
science and objectve and subjective reality. It has profound implications for our
understanding of quantum physics, chance and meaning, the genetic code, and mo0re.
It is without doubt one of the most profound systems ever formulated.

review. The "New Age I Ching" is not just another translation of the ancient
material. It is the result of a whole new look at the Oracle and how it can be consulted.
The book goes beyond the problems of simply trying to translate the existing text; it

350 pages long, divided into about 100 pages of introductory essays and 250 pages of I
Ching hexagram text.
