    Default Timeprogress in the hexagram - a draft

    I'm working on a little article on how I see time and our position in relation to the hexagram.

    Awakening in young Yang,
    fulfilling in old Yang,
    enjoying in young Yin,
    resting in old Yin.
    The daily, annual and existencial cyclus.

    Thanks Svenrus, the way you've written things creates an almost 3D or holographic image of the hexagram for me, really interesting.
    We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets, to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew…human beings are actually created for the transcendent, for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful. ~Desmond Tutu

    I preferr PDF as it's easier to me adding illustrations. I have added postings here before using PDF and I'm awere that my english grammar sucks, to put it in the soft way. This time I try to dubblecheck the grammar beside the spelling.

    Default So far for now

    Googletranslation are invented by the devil, no sorry, but I think I've corrected my article by the help of several dictionaries others than Google translator. And the english spell- and grammar checker in my OpenOffice editor can't be valued too high.

    I would be very pleased if someone who finds errors will tell.

    There's a lot more to add to this draft and I'm not sure if it's OK the way it is.

    I've wrote it only for You here on Hilary's site.

    Default I Ching older than king Wen (?)

    It's important for me to notice that I'm not a sinologist, as I also have pointed out in my profile here; I don't understand one chinese word and my pdf are based only on westerners translations.
    When I place king Wen later in the origin of I Ching I base it on what James Legge refers to from The book of History (the Shu): ".... In the Shû King, in a document that purports to be of twenty-third century B.C., divination by means of the tortoise-shell is mentioned (The Shû II, ii, 18); and somewhat later we find that method continuing, and also divination by the lineal figures, manipulated by means of the stalks of a plant, the Ptarmica Sibirica, which is still cultivated on and about the grave of Confucius, where I have myself seen it growing (The Shû V, iv, 31)...." (ibid p. 7) and as divination with the stalks of yarrows are so nearly connected with I Ching I dare claiming that king Wen only compiled the I Ching - that he did not compose it....
    You could also see the pdf as an "aperitifer " for a wider look on the hexagram (than "just" a hexagram)

    Beside that I'm still not sure whether my english grammar are correct or not.
