The eight Kua - Family members # For people wishing to study the Chinese Classic I-Ching
A lot of modern translations of the Chinese Classic I-Ching exist nowadays. This one is a copy of the Chinese to English version by James Legge. Used traditionally as an oracle, to bring one closer to the guiding wisdom of the spirit.
A SHORT OUTLINE.
The original book appeared in the Sacred Books of the East Vol. 16. The Sacred Books of China, vol. 2 of 6, Part II of The Texts of Confucianism. As well as this complete edition of James Legge's 1882 book, there are now appended/later updates which include analytics and modern graphics applied to the more difficult, obscure sections. As this area covers advanced study, the understanding of other resources of knowledge is found necessary. This will be shown at various points in this text, to help elucidate the mainstream subject matter of the I-Ching.
References include; Taoist doctrine & traditional medicine, Buddhist abhidhamma sources, Hinduism, Platonic solids.
# New sections added, cover hitherto unpublished subjects on;
The single line correlates used in each hexagram, expanded by the use of a 3 part set of colours applied to each line.
Dual line pairs named as hsiang, expanded with supporting colour line theory and revealed in a matrix for efficient abbreviation. With analysis of alignment to the established order of I-Ching dual-hsiang, trigrams and hexagrams.
Adding modern sciences DNA to the thousands of years of recorded harmonious knowledge found in the I-Ching.
All this makes provocative reading, supplementary to the valued original James Legge translation. As an additional cross-reference, every one of the 64 hexagrams has an external web-link to the Richard Wilhelm English I-Ching translation.

Some detail from a few of the 64 hexagrams, the coloured lines shown in the image above, help with insight into the single line 'CORRELATES', a term used when reading a hexagram in binary form. That is as ZERO (0) and ONE (1).
Just how would one translated 6 lines of a mixed hexagram into a word description? This is what is done by the zero and one correlations. Each of the hexagrams has extensive paragraphs appended over thousands of years by various groups of official commentators, kings, Confucias and James Legge in his translation to English.
THIS NEXT IMAGE SHOWS THE MAIN SUBJECT MATTER OF THE I-CHING, IN THE PRE HEAVEN CIRCLE AND SQUARE OF FU-HSI.
The colours used here define the dual line hsiang, these differ from the colour usage outlined by using 'correlates' noted above. Here progress through a hexagram is by 2's.
