Asked the Yi about a friend, "Hey X, how are you doing?" Yi's answer: 6.4,5 > 4. Background situation is he's a little "out there" and recently started going a little manic and is now in the psych ward of a hospital. I don't know the guy real well... I just met him one time a party and heard about his situation through another friend. Interpretations welcome.

with/from compromise comes socialisation (masking - resistance is futile, he will be assimilated).

Thanks, Chris. The thing about this situation is even though I don't know the guy very well, he seems like a genuinely nice guy, just a little over the top sometimes, so I hope he doesn't end up as a lifeless worker drone in the Borg colony.

Do you think 4 as the resultant hexagram means that this is a repeating pattern, or that it's just a one-time thing and he'll find that central balance? Or doesn't the resultant hex have a significant meaning here?

hi,

I must admit, my first thought from what you described was the hyper-sensitive type that received too many impressions from the external world and which then flooded his inner world to the point of "submerging" his ability to manage daily life.

4 suggests to me that there is at least the potential to learn from this experience. If there wasn't I guess there would have been a 29, 36 or 28 in there. Not sure.

This person needs to learn to compromise and to do that needs a teacher, the quality control, the discipline, comes with that teaching where the focus is on socialisation.

The water base of 6 covers issues of rejection/rejecting and so the 'demand' for socialisation to be able to 'be one of us' (Borg ;-)) This base is shared across both hexagrams and brings out the issues of containment/control and the dynamics of protection - be it from him or for him. The 'imprisonment' focus (47 - shares space with 06) is on (a) protecting others from him but also (b) protecting him from others/himself. This also covers integration with the context, setting down roots etc.

06 reads "with/from containment comes singlemindedness"
04 reads "with/from containment comes discernment (quality control)"

06-04 reads "with/from compromise (but singleminded compromise, meet 'them' half way, no more, no less - and so the focus on litigation exercises etc - competitive but in a boundary state a la water's bounding nature) comes masking.

Now we COULD interpret this negatively in the context of compromise allowing for masking and so a loss of unique identity OR to resolve the problems the focus is positive in that within the containment a teacher exists who is able to help.

Which perspective is valid depends on the local context.

Chris.
