    Default I Ching: Estructura y Fórmula de los Trigramas

    Behold! My Yijing Master and friend: Cat-Yi



    I really wish that book he's resting on (I Ching: Estructura y Fórmula de los Trigramas; by J.C. Fernández, ISBN 84-85805-35-6) had a version in English. Alas, it is only in Spanish and it is near impossible to find extant copies. The whole book is dedicated to discussing trigrams and their structure and interactions. There are diagrams there that I've not seen in any other work in English, or even in Chinese. All diagrams are drawn by hand (see sample below). I purchased the book just recently and I'm reading it. Aside for the quasi-religious connections he makes, it is a very interesting reading and has some original ideas.


    Rodrigo (Jesed), do you have a copy of this book? I'd like to know your opinion about it, if you do.

    Oh, I think I could read that book in Spanish.
    It's about structural similarities between trigrams and formula one racing cars, right?

    Yes, Cat-Yi is fully trilingual: English, Spanish and Chinese. Furthermore, not only his Chinese is far better than mine, he makes me doubt my Spanish...

    Hi Luis

    Yes, this is a very interesting but most-un-known author (J.C. Fernandez).

    For those who can read in spanish, his work is being published in the Blog compendiu d' iching
    http://iching-ichingyafines.blogspot.com/

    There, in the section "otro material" (other material) you can see 6 pdf files with Fernandez's take on structure of the Yi (including 4 pdf from the book you talk about here on trigrams); and in the section of "los 64 hexagramas" (the 64 hexagrams), everytime is not mention another author, the text if from Fernandez.

    It is worthly work in my opinion...

    Best wishes
