The I Ching

I Ching symbol

The I Ching, or "Classic of Changes", is an ancient Chinese oracle, one of the five classics of Confucianism, traditionally used for divination and as a moral, philosophical, and cosmological text.  Yet great as it's relevance to an understanding of ancient and modern Chinese thought is, the I Ching goes beyond that, giving an insight into science and objectve and subjective reality.  It has profound implications for our understanding of quantum physics, chance and meaning, the genetic code, and mo0re.  It is without doubt one of the most profound systems ever formulated.
