a name that can be named is not the constant name

It is interesting to see how hypertext has gone from being a grand possibility to a never-finished chore. --Ted Nelson

I Ching at the UCLA CAD Lab (1993)

This document will perform an I-Ching reading for you. There is also
some additional information regarding how this program generates

Explore the power of prophecy and how it can affect you.
Concentrate on a problem or question facing you now, when you have it

Additional Information: (yes, I guess I take submissions...)

Advanced I Ching: The Structure of a Well- Ordered Family
This is an unreviewed paper written by Terrence Payne.

Implementation Notes

Here are a couple of interestion notes on how our I-Ching readings are
generated. I tried to capture how a real reading was cast to the
highest degree possible.

In pursuit of the above goal:

* Lines are generated from bottom to top.
* Random numbers of 2 and 3 are generated to capture the proper
numerical symbology

Why are you here?!?!?

Jonathan Katz: A retrospective.



(About time, dont you think?)


Why Jonathan is disgruntled about his Web Server...

Well... My former goal of putting all information available at UCLA on-line
is essentially dead. InfoUCLA (an "official" group) is doing that. Perhaps,
one day, they will put up information interesting to students , but, either
way, they have made it clear that they do not appreciate me doing general
UCLA things.....

I have at least been getting good feedback on my Tarot Card, I-Ching, and
Biorhythm, servers, so, I dont feel totally quashed.

Computers were a hobby, now I work with them as a job. You too can develop
skills to obtain a position in a thankless profession. If I studied
Cognitive Science, I would say that I am getting overcompensated which is
leading to a state of discontent and lack of feeling for initial inherent
enjoyment of computers that I used to enjoy. Sure, those psych models work
for other people, but, they couldn't be working on me....


Random Biographical Information...

Some Things I like...


Welp, I really don't have time now to throw in a biography, but, I guess
some obvious things to say are that I am a member of the The Magic Castle in
Hollywood, I have a dry sense of humor, and I like when people cook for me
(if you are considering this, I dont eat meat (eggs and cheese are ok) and I
dont eat mushrooms).


My current biorhythm is here for no other reason than "because I can".
The location of my birthday in PI is here for no other reason than "because
I can".
