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

A Beginner's Guide to the I Ching

I Ching an introduction to the book of changes

by Willard Johnson

As Cocteau writes of opium, so of the I Ching
"One must not take opium too seriously." 

 . . .  The I Ching is not the obscure oracle book that it is commonly thought to be--anyone who uses it for a while knows this well enough. The I Ching is a book of vision and wisdom unique in the world, as it includes an absolutely simple method of consulting it, namely the throwing of three coins six times to 'draw' a hexagram . . .  The hexagram drawn presents an abstract 'image' along with commentaries which help one to understand one's situation of 'change.' As one throws the coins with a question in mind, the hexagram image helps one to investigate and understand all the subtleties of the change situation one is involved in as defined by the question . . .
