I am a local bar fortune teller and sit nightly offering a gentle push by combining tarot and ching. Here I have utilized a trello board where each hexagram and line is laid out in an accessible 'at-a-glance' formation. Each card displays the Wilhelm translation on face, clicking into the card opens full transcription of multiple resources.

James Legge
R.L. Wing
John Blofeld
Alfred Huang
Lui I-Ming
David Hinton
Richard Wilhelm
Wengu Tartarie
Etc

With contemplation of Hexagram 48 (The Well) in mind: the source of nourishment never changes, but we cannot rely on the palate of one translator, commentator or interpretation. Even Confucius himself was fallible and often foolish according to Zhuang Zhou. Therefore, after a read - I seek to immediately peruse every resource available with the expectation that each scholar has a needed piece of the same puzzle.

All books are owned physically and have been entered manually by hand. It is essentially an attempt at building upon the James DeKorne Gnostic Book of Changes which omits too much, assumedly to keep the information succinct - or to skirt copyright infringement. Similarly, I must refrain from sharing the resource until permissions can be granted. The project is barely 20% complete, thus such things can wait until a later time.

You need to at least add translations/writings by Rutt, Hatcher, Karcher, Barrett, RL Wing, John Minford (both translations), Thomas Cleary (both translations), Wilhelm's Book III, and Nigel Richmond to make it even close to being complete. And correspondences with the Tarot, Kabbalah, Astrology, the Forest of Changes, and the Canon of Supreme Mystery would round things out nicely.

Very possibly a lifelong project that I can keep adding to over the years. When doing a read, I just swipe and tap once - allowing the querent themselves to peruse and interpret. It has been very rewarding. Can provide my own interpretation if they wish - but why not stand on the shoulders of giants?

The real giant in the room will always be the person you're reading for, who will experience the imagery in their own, unique way. (Or to hijack a metaphor, show them how the Well works, and they'll water their own garden!)

Typing all these out by hand must be a real labour of love - and yes, you're right, sharing it would get you into all kinds of copyright troubles. Ingenious use of Trello, though!
