hmmm... some more - we have these pairs that form into a quartet:

25 assert one's perspective (standup)
12 defend one's perspective (neutralise)

11 balance one's perspective (harmonise)
26 hold firm to one's perspective (hold firm)

WITHIN the binary sequence of earth-based trigrams we have the pairings in the earth-based ordering as:

exaggerated(active,proactive) - balanced(passive,reactive)

12 - 02
45 - 23
35 - 08
16 - 20

thus the left column is exaggerations of the properties of the right column all done within the LOCAL set of eight. Go global to get the general set of heaven octet vs earth octet:

01 - 02
43 - 23
14 - 08
34 - 20
09 - 16
05 - 35
26 - 45
11 - 12

again left column is exaggerating of the right column - thus neutralise is more 'balanced' than harmonise that puts in more energy to allow for 'potentials' - there are none in 12 in that change is avoided.

45 celebrates belief and no more. 26 is proactive in that it chooses to retain a belief (traditions), it chooses to promote, to exploit, a belief system beyond the norm (and so the warning about not getting too carried-awaty and letting the past rule the present/future)

35 focuses on 'bringing something into the light' - 05 is more 'proactive' in that process with a more personal sense of promotion (bringing self into the light! ;-))

09 makes small gains, 16 plans and in doing so avoids 'extremes', something that 09 is prepared to risk. (locally 16 exaggerates 20, we dont just admire, we enthusiastically plan)

20 is passive invigoration (admiration leading to copying etc) 34 is more intense, more active invigoration.

08 is passive control, 14 is active, an individual in the centre rather than the group.

23 balances belief by pruning. 43 promotes belief by seeding (spread the word).

02 integrates, balances, protects 01 differentiates, promotes, exploits.

We could reduce it all to eight 'pure' threads that are active through any level of analysis:

dodecagram hexagram trigram
111111111111 111111 111
111111110000 111100 110
111100001111 110011 101
111100000000 110000 100
000011111111 001111 011
000011110000 001100 010
000000001111 000011 001
000000000000 000000 000

these 'constants' shine bright, all else is 'details' - simple ;-)

Chris.
