Yi Jing – The Book of Changes



Yi Jing

El I Ching, “Yì Jīng”, is a Chinese oracle book whose first word is written to represent the 1200 the. C. It is one of the Five Confucian Classics.

The term I Ching means 'Book of Changes'. The text was increased during the Chou dynasty and later by commentators Confucius School, but its original content is Taoist origin, and no confucianista. It is believed that describes the current situation of the user query and predicts how they will be resolved in the future if it adopts the correct position before. Book is also a book of divination and moral, while its structure and symbolism is a philosophical book and cosmogenic.

The philosophy of the I Ching is a universe governed by the principle of change and the dialectical relationship between the opposite. Never has a situation that is not included on principle against the rector of the sign, will lead to a new state. The changes occur in cycles, as the seasons, which clearly shows the Taoist concept of yin and yang.

In appearance cosmogenic, the I Ching describes a universe in which the creative energy comes from the sky, while the earth is receiving and fertilizing that primary energy.

In a way the I Ching considers change as the only existing reality, being. In the West, being identified with that which holds together the way (immaterial principle) and matter (material principle) and gives the formal under the form. For the I Ching, the matter is just a temporary manifestation of a deeper principle.

Zhou's comments, mostly of the Confucian school added a moral principle that should govern the conduct of the person who aspires to be "noble". This moral philosophy is inspired by nature and the ways in which it proceeds, so I Ching figures find their counterpart in the political life and behave as metaphors of right conduct.

In the I Ching binary numbering system warns, both geometric and arithmetic, in which a continuous line is simultaneously all odd numbers, and a creek, pairs. Hexagrams strokes are built from the bottom up, unlike later Chinese writing, which is built up and down.
