From her book, Tao of Chaos Patterns, Chapter 13, Section 5 (ebook)
This TOE suggests that the deep-level structure of primal space, time, matter, and energy is fractal. A source code turns this primal foursome into a pair of polarized pairs: space and time become the universal carrier pair, and matter and energy become the universal contents pair.
Space and time stay dependable in their task of containerizing matter and energy. These containerized contents continually flux in their specific details. Old configurations of matter and energy decay in the container of space and time, but then morph into emerging new events.
Mind itself, above and below the Planck level, helps shape the thrust of this process. Information crosses the central threshold of the Planck level. This threshold separates the two conjoined twins of a double bubble universe. Each twin bubble has its own dependable 4D space/time container that holds its matter/energy contents with evolving specific details.
The conjoined twins also interrelate constantly across the Planck level. They carry on a continual conversation at the Planck level. To do so, they use a fractal code based on vertical and horizontal period 3 windows. A shorthand version of this code exists in the I Ching’s trigrams and hexagrams, which are holographically resonant to reality itself.
Our universe consists of both twins together, It is holographically resonant and exhibits chaotic flow in a complex, non-repeating pattern. This means that you may be able to predict the general fractal carrier form of a chaos pattern—but not its specific contents. A minor event in one place can have huge, seemingly unrelated consequences elsewhere.
A modern weather forecast is rather like a message from the ancient I Ching oracle. Both the weather forecast and the I Ching message speak more about the fractal carrier form of a qualitative dynamic rather than the quantitative load of its specific details. The ancient Chinese enshrined this “butterfly effect” in the saying, “I wave my left hand, and the whole world moves.”
Likewise, the ancient Chinese believed that consulting the I Ching oracle helps you foresee and weather the emotions of life better. It won’t predict the quantitative details of an emotional hail storm or tornado or drought or rainbow that’s upcoming, only its general qualitative dynamic for your life.
In both cases, a forecast on either physical or emotional weather, you’re provided with a basic outline of the dynamic in its fractal form, but the unique details must be filled by living through it as you make your free will choices. The advantage here is that at least you now have a heads-up.
Perhaps you scoff, thinking, “How can consulting some old oracle possibly give me a true answer?”
Well, consider this possibility: a hexagram answer embodies the principle of co-chaos patterning generated between domains. It succinctly describes the dynamic of an event occurring in mattergy over space and time, yet it still lets you fill in the specific details with your own free will. It even describes this dynamic using both a verbal analogy and a mathematical shorthand.
This TOE suggests that the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching resonate with the universal source code. That cryptic shorthand reflects the fractal dynamic that is embedded in the great hologram of reality. Each hexagram is a miniature model for this paradigm.
Each hexagram holds a pair of trigrams. Each trigram has three lines or “3 dimensions” that indicate a specific dynamic organizing its own domain, above or below, on a p-tree. A hidden bond or 4th dimension in each domain attracts the two trigrams to each other. Together they develop a co-chaos pattern that bonds the two trigrams across domains.
This is a miniature version of what happens to our double bubble universe with four dimensions in each domain, above and below the Planck level—plus 4 more tiny dimensions that create the attraction hidden right inside the Planck level.
What a gift from the master code! For more on this, see the third volume of this series, Double Bubble Universe.
Tapping into the I Ching gives you a way to get an insight on the fractal dynamics of our universe. It helps you perceive and adjust your own fit in it. Your I Ching answer is complex and nuanced. Understanding it encourages developing a subtle, associative mindset.
An I Ching answer is a far cry indeed from the mere flat, dogmatic, binary right or wrong, yes or no, that we have come to expect on a pop quiz and we currently demand in a law court. Learning to understand the I Ching is necessarily an experiential voyage into exploring your own life and psyche.
This exercise is pumping iron for the subtle body. It resides in the universal patterning and will reside there it long after your physical body is gone.
Katya Walter has a Ph.D. with an interdisciplinary emphasis from the University of Texas at Austin. She spent 5 years of post-doctoral study at the Jung Institute of Zurich, and a year of post-study in China. She taught in colleges and universities in the USA and abroad for sixteen years before focusing on writing and lecturing. She has presented numerous workshops on the I Ching, Chaos Theory, Synchronicity, and Dreams in the United States and Europe. Katya is author of the Touching God’s TOE series of books. She also authored an accompanying handbook called Dream Mail – designed for contemplating the deeper structure of dreams. It discusses the fractal messages that are carried in the symbolism of dreams and how to interpret dreams for daily life.
