clusters of six?
Okay, here's an idea that I've never thought of before, and I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere either (although I'm sure some Chinese guy who's been dead for six hundred years came up with it too).
The idea: a connection between the six hexagrams, or rather the six active lines in those hexagrams, which all have the same relating hexagram. For instance:
Okay, at first glance, I don't see a lot in common with each of those lines. Do any of you see a commonality in those six lines?
I suppose I have to take into account the nature of 42 vis a vis the nature of which line is active: a first line is often way different from a third line or a fifth line, for instance - which would mean that there wouldn't be a lot in common. So, for instance 42's Increase in the context of a first line in 20's Contemplation wouldn't necessarily have anything in common with 42's Increase in the context of a fifth line in 27's Nourishment.
