More > the hexagrams are the vehicle for the expression of a philosophy, the characters became the basis of the national literature and the names repositories of ideas springing out of the dual philosophy of yin and yang. From there, the philosophy of two contrasted elements in a single antithesis expanded itself into the system of the five elements. A philosophy whose symbols were linear became a philosophy whose symbols were circular and linear. Mr. Edkins provides in these few essays a fascinating approach that reminds that of Iulian Shchutskii's Researches on the I Ching (1979) and benefits to be read along with the analyzis of Terrien de la Couperie's The Yijing (1892).

His theories were challenged by J. Legge and G. Schlegel, especially his theories of the origins of Chinese civilization, the comparison between Chinese characters, monosyllabic and Chaldean words, polysyllabic, and the Babylonian origins of the sixty year ganzhi cyclical calendar system. With these cautions in mind, his work remains of interest with regard to suggested interpretations, analysis of material history and Western developments. ISBN-13: 978-1-944175-09-2< Less

Classical Chinese Combinatorics: Derivation of the Book of Changes Hexagram Sequence By Richard S Cook

Prints in 3-5 business days
The first and most enigmatic of the Chinese classics is the Book of Changes, and the reasoning behind its binary hexagram sequence remained an unsolved mystery for some 3,000 years (according to the... More > tradition ascribing it to King Wen of Zhou, d. -11th c.). This Monograph resolves the classical enigma: Richard Cook provides a comprehensive analysis of the hexagram sequence, showing that its classification of binary sequences demonstrates knowledge of the convergence of certain linear recurrence sequences (LRS; Pingala -5th c.?, Fibonacci 1202) to division in extreme and mean ratio (DEMR, the “Golden Section” irrational; Pythagoras -6th c.?, Euclid -4th c.). It is shown that the complex hexagram sequence encapsulates a careful and ingenious demonstration of the LRS/DEMR relation, that this knowledge results from general combinatorial analysis, and is reflected in elements emphasized in ancient Chinese and Western mathematical traditions.< Less

The Book of Mutations By R. Leo Gillis
eBook (PDF): $8.97
The Book of Mutations is based on Liber Trigrammaton by Aleister Crowley, who called it "the ultimate foundation of the highest theoretical qabalah". The 27 trigrams of this work establish... More > a new paradigm of number mysticism by using Base 3, rather than decimal counting, to explore the Cube of Space, sacred geometry, the I Ching, magic squares, English gematria, and much more. The Trigrammaton Qabalah also has extensive commentaries on Crowley's Book of the Law, using English gematria based on the letter-values Crowley himself assigned to the 27 trigrams of Liber Trigrammaton. Using the trigrams in this way is 'the key of it all' that unlocks this mysterious document. The Cipher of verse II:76 is also decoded, showing the deep connection between this string of glyphs and the English gematria of Liber CCXX. The result of over a dozen years of research, with dozens of charts and hundreds of hexagram graphics, this is the definitive sourcebook for the English Qabalah.< Less
