Devotees of the I Ching will find new concepts to explore in THE GIFT OF THE TORTOISE: NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE I CHING. It offers new ways of seeing into the core of the I Ching, Hexagrams, lines, construction of an oracle and how it can guide us in our modern world. Building on the authors' basic text, QUESTIONING THE ORACLE: THE I CHING, are such riddles as: is there a secret behind the Textual number? Is there a reason behind the changes? Can the I Ching help us to look back in time, to better understand our past? These and other questions kept the authors searching over decades of study. Their findings pave a new trail, echoing the Oracle in expressing nature's intrinsic balance. Math fans will have much to ponder, and drawings illustrate each point. This book point readers toward the ultimate goal; union with the flow of Chi and communion with one's formless Spirit. Areas explored include: Quantifying Time, Gathering Momentum, Trioles, Hearing the Oracle, Patterns, Reverse and Interim Hexagrams, Tri-une Triplets and the Emperor, Parallels and a Parable. A Glossary, Index, extensive Bibliography, and Hexagram Cards close the book. Also in this breakthrough text: Bigram, Binary System, Codon, Co-Index, Conversion, Division, Drama Triangle, Duplets, Elements, Emperor, Greater Heaven, Head, Shell and Tail Hexagrams, Law of Odd and Even, Logon, Marks, Negative Logic, Nominee, Octonary, Oracle, Pairs, Pokon, Power Triangle, Quaternary System, Rolling, Smaller Heaven, Star Patterns, Sum-Cells, Trigrams, Un-Time, Utmost Heaven, Wu-Chi, Yang-flow, Yin-flow, etc. A merging of minds and talents is evident in this work, with psychology and artistry aiding readers in visualizing concepts, with hundreds of graphics.
