    Default Vaginal I Ching by Dr. Franklin R. Kegan, Psy. D.

    In my first publication, I Ching Primer ( in Mexican Spanglish slang, Ching is an obscene word) I introduced my new Flux Tome Perspective and the Oracle Blank to allow all Yi Oracles to be written and analyzed on a pre-printed form. Rather than having different graphic lines for the Oracle line values of six, seven, eight, and nine, assigned to static or moving, Yang line or Yin line; my novel idea was to interpret Yang and Yin as Figure and Ground of Gestalt.


    Thus all Oracles take form in a standard Matrix of six broken lines like Hexagram Two Homeland. What makes the difference between the hexagram Two form or matrix and the Oracle Blank to record any and all I Ching Oracles is what is marked in the space between the two broken lines at each level.

    A line value of 6 which is a moving Yin line is marked with an X showing material being absorbed from the Environment to fill in this open Yin space and change it into a Yang line.

    A line value of 7 which is a static Yang line is marked by filling in this space to make a single solid or Yang line.

    A line value of 8 is an Open Yin space that is left blank to form a static Yin Line.

    A line value of 9 is marked with a line filling the gap between the two pieces of the form matrix and with a circle indicating this Yang line is moving, expressing and exhausting itself, diffusing out into the Environment which will change this line eventually into an Open Yin space.

    This use of six broken lines as Matrix for the graphic representation of any and all I Ching Oracles results in an alternative view of Hex 2 Homeland:

    Thus all Oracles take form in a standard Matrix of six broken lines like Hexagram Two Homeland. This Matrix of the Great Mother Planet Earth with the six broken lines represents the six categories of elevation in Planet Earth Topography from Sea Level to High Mountains Top.

    The first level and the first line is the Sea Level and the entirety of the World’s Oceans with their primal source of life and oxygen and abundance of sea food.

    Level Two is the elevation of rivers, streams, and ground water.

    Level Three is that of the rains that fall and the runoff from fields and villages into the streams and rivers.

    This completes the Lower Trigram of the Water Cycle.

    The upper trigram is the three elevations of the Land. Fourth level is the valley floors where crops are easily grown in flat fields with good drainage.

    The fifth level is that of the world of human habitation and development, the general topography and geography of the various nations and their land mass.

    The top or six level is the high mountains that represent the sacred heights and panoramic scenery of those special mountain ranges that create the character and exalted beauty of our environment.

    In my description of this active graphic marking of the line values in this column or channel between the ends of the set of six broken lines (Hex Two) I referred to this as the Birth Canal of the I Ching Oracle.

    Women friends of mine who had given birth objected saying that nothing happens in the birth canal, all development takes place in the uterus. I was aware that birth complications and problems like Kaiser Wilhelm II terrible forceps delivery tragedy generally occur in this passage through the birth canal from the uterus to independent air breathing as a living baby with its own breath or soul and thus horoscope.
    So I am now using the technical terms currently in medical use:

    While your baby travels through the birth canal, his body begins to produce two hormones: adrenaline and noradrenalin. Your baby will never again produce such high amounts of these two chemicals. Both chemicals help to make your baby's trip a successful one. The adrenaline aids your baby in adjusting to the air environment he will soon encounter. This chemical opens up his lungs and dries out his bronchi, preparing him to breathe. The noradrenalin works to slow your baby's heartbeat. This helps him to go without oxygen for a prolonged period as he works his way out of the birth canal.

    In general, your baby shouldn't have too much trouble making his way into the world. His body should pass easily through the birth canal. His head, however, may be a different story. This is actually the most troublesome part of your baby to make its way out of the birth canal. Luckily, the skull isn't completely hardened at birth, allowing your baby's head to be gently altered in order to help it pass through.
    During birth, the vagina is often referred to as the birth canal.

    Now I am in the process of expanding my original remarks, published in 64 numbered pages and VI pages of introduction in my I Ching Primer into a complete Flux Tome Perspective I Ching explanation of each of the 64 hexagrams and their 6 component lines.

    Default The human genitalia as the substratum of the Symbolism of Vaginal I Ching...

    Hi Luis,

    I was well along in posting a recognition of and replacement to this place where my thread took off on a tangent about the Royal Academy in Madrid and the difference in the Evolution of the Noosphere between formal languages such as Spanish and the living experiment of bilingual American Hispanics called Spanglish.

    Neither the metaphysics of Teilhard's Phenomenon of Man with its definition of the new reality of global mind, he called the Noosphere-- as the radio broadcasts brought human thought through the atmosphere, as bacteria had been found to extend the biosphere as an actual layer of life around the Earth and the air;

    Or the technical quibbles about Creole languages and slang Spanglish really are relevant to this thread about a new, simple, revolutionary and universally accessible interpretation of the Chou I Ching and the King Wen Sequence that can be related to eternal human verities: The Water Cycle, Agriculture, Appreciation for the Divine in human Life or Justice/Karma/ natural consequences of any and all actions for the first section of 30 hexagrams.

    The other secret to understanding ancient metaphysics and traditional Occult divination is to realize these were the stories of the simple folk, the kitchen gossip of the servants of the great houses. The children were invisible in the kitchen with the servants who observed everything, but only understood in their own terms. If the master read a book of poetry which caused him to weep, this was magic to the servants. They could not read, and no matter how much they looked at the pages of the book, it would not speak to them and tell them exciting adventure and sad stories.

    The children of the elite families remembered the stories they heard from the servants, but as they grew up, this became a whispered rumor of magical books that did so much more powerful things than the boring texts they had to read in school. This is the source of the sacred mysteries of the Occult and divination. The interplay of various Piaget stages of intellectual and cognitive development then translated into new concepts to account for the differences in epistemology.

    In any event, some references are eternal. The basics of the water cycle, agriculture, human seeking the Divine through sacrifice and ritual are some. The human experience of the male and female genitalia and sexual intercourse, pregnancy, childbirth and the awareness of the continuity and cycle of life by the time one becomes a grandparent.

    It is a universal experience of those over 40, the traditional age to begin study of the I Ching, that when you see your children doing with your grandchildren the same exact things you still remember doing with them--it is a great insight that these things are not just personal history, but the eternal cycles and realities of child rearing.

    These universals and my unique explanation of them from the simplest of first principles is the essence of my Flux Tome (I Ching or Book of Changes) perspective and the heart of the Vaginal I Ching. How to refer to the male or Yang component of this Vaginal I Ching. It must be some sort of Phallic symbolism. How do the male genitalia relate to each and all the symbolic stages from infant boys squirting their mothers trying to diaper them (hex 4 Meng1) to young boys like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn who are quite able to deal with the natural world, though they find their elders clearly crazed by their sexuality which does not yet exist for them (hex 25). Then on to puberty and the passions that they begin to feel (hex 61) until they finally learn the lesson of monogamous love as the secret to making the family work and produce food and raise more kids (hex 31 to 40).

    The key to making family life and work successful is to accept the spouse as your true love, regardless of how you came to the formal marriage. From there the ultimate secret (hex 39 and 40) is that the spouses must separate and involve themselves with their chores all day, becoming more and more sexually aroused and looking forward to returning home and after all their household and child rearing chores are done retiring to their marriage bed to make it all worthwhile in marital relations with the ultimately satisfying orgasm of hex 40.

    That is the background (Yin) to my Vaginal I Ching as pennant or bright flag shining in the sunshine (Yang).

    Best As Ever,
    Frank

    Default Vaginal I Ching as the wave of the future and friend to all Youth...

    Hi Hilary,

    And good riddance to them on my intellectual thread of the simple access to the Chou I Ching for high school students. I have just realized that is what I am trying to achieve:

    How does a regular, run of the mill high school student access the benefits of the Book of Changes (I Ching, Yijing, Flux Tome, etc) to deal with the changes that they are still learning to accept and deal with in their tumultuous lives that none of the adults realize are so tumultuous.

    Where do they find a cool grandparent that will guide them and play with them and help them do everything that they want to do. Encourage them when they are down, correct them gently (or not so gently if they need it), inspire them to tackle the difficult things they would love to succeed at, help them with the obligations they have and need to find a way to do better at, etc. etc?

    That was my first introduction to the Yi Oracle Spirit when it was shown how to cast and interpret the Wilhelm. I owe this to the youth of NOW who must face a very difficult world that it is their obligation to fix enough so they can survive long enough to produce another generation of kids to help them mature and through parenthood become the elders their society will need.

    So, like Liberty leading the People, it is time to take up our pennies and cast out the stogy old thinkers and enjoy the loving interaction between Father Sunshine and Mother Earth that is the core of all reasonable natural religion and the basis of the Chou I Ching and its King Wen Sequence of the 64 hexagrams that describe everything humans can perceive of their situation, circumstances, changes and potentials.

    Default Vaginal I Ching web page published online but still Under Construction...

    Hi All,

    I have completed at least the general outline of my entire work and it is all up on my website on the page:

    http://www.stars-n-dice.com/vaginaliching.html

    Amazing how much work still remains to be done. Gia-Fu's Taoist Translation and my Correspondence of the Yi and the Sabian Symbols for the 360 degrees of the Zodiac are not yet integrated together. A major Spreadsheet database would be a great help and is in the works.

    Most of my concern now will be the issues of explaining how to interpret and analyze the Yi Oracle for young people (and the young at heart) in a way that they can develop their own sense of personal mastery of the elegant symbolism of the Yi that transcends all Time and Space.

    I once did an I Ching Workshop where I put off until the second half any explanation of the traditional commentaries or hexagram meaning. Instead I explained the abstract concepts of the lines and Yang and Yin and had the class describe themselves in 6 lines.

    For those who knew nothing of the Chou I Ching, it worked very well. Not quite so well for the one person who was familiar enough with the Wilhelm to choose a hexagram rather than just self-description.

    So, now I will be working on access for all equally, whether they know the hexagrams and the Chinese Text intimately or they have never seen a Yi hexagram and find the notion of symbolism peculiar in any way shape or form.

    Default Vaginal I Ching as the penultimate resolution of Freudian view of Yang and Yin...

    One of the more vexing questions in the tug of war over Western and Chinese views of the I Ching focuses upon the relationship of the concepts of Yang and Yin with the hexagram line symbolism of the broken and unbroken lines.

    The reflex Freudian view is that since Yang is associated with male and Yin with female that the unbroken line must be phallic and the broken line symbolize the female vulva.

    Confucian Chinese commentary has always objected saying the Confucian notion of Yang and Yin were dominant or masculine and submissive or feminine roles equally represented as the King and his ministers as by husband and wife. That is certainly the literary consensus in Chinese text sources from the Confucian era (he died in the 5th century BCE) forward.

    However, the ancient Chinese ideograms suggest there was a more direct, concrete understanding involved in the development of concept based ideograms to express the Mandarin centralized written form of the Chinese language to Imperial official throughout the land.

    In some ways the male development of artistic and symbolic creations as their alternative to the totally female capacity to bear children would suggest that there ought to be some more concrete genital substrate upon which the graphical development of the Yang and Yin symbolism arose.

    The development of the copper smelter from the original pottery kiln seems to indicate a direct line of descent from the female form such as the original use of pottery for Venus figures to the construction of the new technology of copper smelting as a way for males to give birth to the generation of new metal. Was there a parallel evolution in symbolism from observed genitalia to Yang and Yin lines?

    And when that symbolic evolution is carried further to the connection between the human quest to connect to the Divine Source we get the I Ching Oracle being born in the space between the broken lines of hexagram Two Or

    Default The Six Stages of Vaginal I Ching by Frank R. Kegan, Psy.D.





    I. The Chou I Ching Oracle is an universal symbolism of the natural growth process or Flux in all things. It begins from a growing root or seed in the first line toward its ultimate flower and seed pod in the final or sixth line. Moving lines and auxiliary hexagrams offer further embellishment to this fundamental process of Flux itself.

    II. Yi Oracles arise from graphical illustration of the mathematical line values of Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine.

    III. The traditional or concrete perspective believes that even numbers are Yin Lines and odd numbers are Yang Lines. Therefore, drawing a Yi Oracle must be done upon blank paper to allow for the 4 different possible lines.

    IV. My new Vaginal I Ching perspective is based upon the insight that the ancients observed and clearly understood the concept of Gestalt controlling human perception. This is an alternative to the foolish Western notion that since Gestalt principles were only entered Western thought in the 20th century; other cultures such as the Chinese could not possibly know about such concepts until it had been explained by Western Academics and translated into say Chinese.

    V. In my Vaginal I Ching perspective, Hexagram Two, composed of Six Open Yin line spaces represents a universal template for all Yi Oracles. The lines of Hex. Two indicate the 6 elevations of our Planet Earth topography from sea level at the first line to the high mountain peaks at the sixth line.
    As with all geographical markings upon symbolic structures such as maps or hexagrams, these elevation or topographical indications are not real entities; but only symbolic lines such as national boundaries or contour lines (cf: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contour_line ). Yi Oracles form in the open space between to two broken line figures for each of the six lines of Hexagram Two as Template.
    Stable Yin (8) remains unmarked as part of the overall background. Moving Yin (6) is marked by an X in the open space of its line place indicating that it is absorbing from its environment and developing a clear focus. Stable Yang (7) is marked upon the Yi Oracle template by filling in the complete single bar at that line stage. Moving Yang (9) is marked by a line across the open space at that line stage with a circle in it showing its focus is expressing and exhausting itself to move towards returning into the general background.

    VI. FAQ:
    1)Why the name Vaginal I Ching?

    2)Why is Junzi now called The Total Prick?

    3)Why now in this perspective is The Great Man called The Total Package?

    4)Why is the focus of Yi Oracle Interpretation changed to a completely simple structural analysis of line place sequence and line values intelligible by 13-year olds?

    5)Symbolism is either grounded in concrete observable reality or in imaginative speculation. Nothing is more concrete, objective or fundamental than the sexuality of the teenager.

    6)The Oracle of the Chou I Ching is a gift from the Divine through the Chou sages to all living humanity universally. Extending and expanding the reach and comprehension of the I Ching Oracle is the duty of all who love and use this form of sacred divination.

    When we first reach our answer, we do not want it to be lost. We must give birth to it correctly.

    OK, how does one know what is correct in a Yi Oracle Answer? And how would an Oracle be lost?

    I have always been amazed how well the Oracle keeps up with us each and all no matter what we might do.

    Not wanting the answer in a Caesarean manner. Grabbing at only the things that comfort us within the reading like a quick knife cut to the answer could possibly create a more surface answer when something deeper lies within the canal that could get lost.

    When I said "correct" I had the idea of a natural birth in my mind. Going thru all the steps that nature intended and not rushing things like a pill but rather searching for things thru deep meaning. (Also some people will skim hexagram's for answers and then "cast" again unsatisfied) And this isn't wrong for those that do. I am sure they get from the answer what the Yi intended. I myself would prefer not to skim and ask again.

    As I was reading your thread my initial post came to mind and I figured I would share my little vision of how vagina's and the I Ching are juxtaposed in my mind.
