Here is an article I wrote, which might interest you:

* * https://www.exactphilosophy.net/elemental-changes-i-ching.pdf

It is about a new way of arranging the trigrams of the I Ching in a circle and considers trigrams in terms of changes between the 4 "Greek" elements. See the article for full details and several illustrations.

About me: I am a Swiss physicist (*1966 in Zürich) and have had contact with the I Ching since about 15 years, but I am not an expert on it and cannot read ancient (or modern) Chinese. What I know very well (besides obviously having some skills in scientific areas), is Western astrology, and I have a certain overview over all kinds of similar "systems" worldwide...

And happy 2017 to everybody! :)

Alain (StaIder)

PS: There is also a German version of the arcticle if you prefer that:

FYI, the article is now also available as part of a book:

Title: exactphilosophy.net 2017
Author: Alain Stalder (=me)
Publisher: Artecat Alain Stalder (=me too, essentially)
Year: 2017
ISBN: 978-3-906914-01-5
Pages: 50-55 (English), 56-61 (German)

I am providing this information mainly so that the article can now be referenced from other works in a maybe more permanent way, but note that the article will remain available in electronic form online for free as long as I possibly can. Also associated with this publication is a copy of the book archived at the Swiss National Library (due to the Swiss ISBN), which is also important to make the publication stick independently of me, since I did not publish the article in an academic journal.

That said, I find the book ist quite beautiful in its way (but also expensive), see here for more information:

• Google Books: https://books.google.com/books?id=C8dBDwAAQBAJ
• Publisher's website (mainly in German): https://www.artecat.ch/exactphilosophy-net-2017.html
• Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/3906914011
• Lulu: http://www.lulu.com/shop/alain-stalder/exactphilosophynet-2017/paperback/product-23440594.html

All the best for 2018! :)

Alain
