    Default Second Edition of the Jiao Shi Yi Lin in the Works

    I have started work on a second edition of the Forest of Changes. This one will be very ambitious. At some point between the Han and the Song the book was badly damaged. The person who put it back together filled in the gaps by using the same verses repeatedly (sometimes up to eight times) and perhaps adding verses of their own.

    I am working on analyzing the various layers and components of the text and will try to put it together in a form that will work better for practical divination. At this point the work is far too negative to be effective. The Yi itself is very slightly positive overall, 50.03% positive. The Forest is more like a 60/40 split with negative verses predominating.

    Of course my real wish is to avoid the whole thing by having someone find a copy of the Yi Lin in a Han tomb.

    Regards,

    Chris Gait
