A little over a year ago I posted a circular chart of the Hexagrams. I was inspired to do this by a comment Luis Andrade made regarding a question about the Hexagrams in a previous post. Well I have to thank Luis again. I received a request from Princeton University Press to include this chart in a book on math to be published in October, 2011. The book is by Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham, titled Magical Mathematics: Revealing the Secrets behind Great Card Tricks of the World. In this book, the authors include a section on the I Ching and its relation to mathematics.

Needless to say, I am thrilled to be included in such a book and most especially since it was Princeton University Press that published our I Ching bible, the Wilhelm translation with Carl Jungs’s famous forward.

I will include here again the image to be included in the book as well as a link to the original post.

I sell this image in several different at my Zazzle store. Clicking on the image will take you to that link.

      If you read the post about why this chart was created, it tells how the I Ching is a circular concept rather than a linear one. How would you use it? That’s up to you. I just like to see the I Ching as a concept with no actual beginning or ending, one hexagram leading to the next. However, there are many other variations of I Ching charts. Maybe I should crate and post all of them. ? ?
