Here's a site http://www.largesalad.co.uk/TTG/expreadings4.htm#choose
which has some kind of different i ching. Can anyone figure out what hex this example might be?

Path 8.5/1
A dead tree.

The rut is deep.
Three units of time pass.
If possible, avoid this Path. At best it will be unsatisfactory. A student who locks themselves away to study will do well.

TIME: Things may seem all right at first, but you are fast approaching a dead end, make changes before it?s too late.

According to the thread about 10 years/3 years, the lines that have three years in them are:

13.3, 29.6, 47.1, 53.5. 55.6, 63.3 and 64.4

That might give you a clue...

It's still the Yi, sort of.
The method forces one Yao Ci (changing line text) per reading. The numbers refer to the trigrams but don't give a clue to what Gua you're in. This one's 47.1.
Gimmicks and more gimmicks. They've always provided much wanted distractions from the actual study of the Yi. Why is that?

If you don't like changing lines, this method is helpful. It helps to focus on one changing line at a time. I used this a lot in the past. Not now, if you know the beauty of changing lines ...

It isn't really modeling "picking cards". It's rolling a d8 twice then a d6.

The translation/interpretation thingie is a "least common denominator" reading and rewording of four or five translations. Sort of a "paste up".

Which isn't necessarily a complete waste of time, especially if you really can't not do it.

Overall a pretty cute hack, and I hope it was very rewarding for a novice-to-intermediate web programmer to have done. Someone lavished a fair amount of time on it, especially if, as I suspicion, they did the text also.

I guess it won't be much of a page-view magnet but I imagine that probably wasn't the point.

Path 8 means upper trigram is wind.
Situation (or house) 4 means lower trigram is lake.
Path 6 is top line.
Hex. 21/6

He-he. Funny thing, but rather primitive. Always gives you one moving line in a hexagram.

Numbers go in simple way:
1 - Qian
2 - Kun (both parents)
3 - Zhen
4 - Xun (both - elder childred)
5 - Kan
6 - Li (both - middle children)
7 - Gen
8 - Dui (both - junior children)

The first card (House) shows you the upper trigram, the second card (Situation) - the lower trigram, and the third card (Path) (always from 1 to 6) - number of the moving line.

I don't know which translation had been used - but I didn't study English translations very much.

Before using this method and text I?d choose a good ole fortune cookie. At least they?re benign.
