Introduction to the I Ching
The I Ching is Chinese and the oldest of all the classical systems, from around 800 BCE. It is a great universal model and one of the oldest books in the world. It is based on simple binary (what our computers are built on) with 64 themes. In its original form it guides through the ways of nature, and provides wisdom for contemplation and insightful answers to questions.
A Universal Model
The hexagrams that form the basis of the I Ching are from the Bagua, in Taoist Cosmology. It is the 8 symbols that represent the basic principles of existence. It is represented by the 8 trigrams, 8 elements of nature: Earth, Wind, Fire, Thunder, Mountain, Water, Lake, and Heaven. Each trigram has three lines, each line either “open” or “solid”, representing yin or yang, 0 or 1 forming binary numbers 000-111 (0 to 7).
The spectrum I Ching is designed by Nathalie Strassburg: 4 Primary aspects: physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental. The 8 parts of the self that we unify on the path to self-realization (Instinctive, Tribal, Emotional, Rational, Achiever, Ecological, Integrated, and Holistic). The 8 trigrams from the I Ching / Bagua: Earth, Wind, Fire, Thunder, Mountain, Water, Lake, and Heaven with their corresponding binary and Intuitive Geometry icons. The 64 hexagrams that form the spectrum of consciousness, and the lessons we master.

The positions of the earth and sun create the primary birth cross (color framed on the profile). The profiles contain both the conscious personality (dark grey icons on the profile and report) and the subconscious design (light grey icons on the profile and report). The subconscious design aspects come from the location of the elements 3 months prior to birth when major brain development takes place, and usually reflect aspects that may be more challenging to integrate. The profiles and reports are compatible with the Human Design and Gene Keys systems.
Female and Male Profiles are available
Intuitive Geometry & the I Ching
I had some knowledge of the I Ching Hexagrams by the time I got into geometry and created the Intuitive Geometry book. Intuitive Geometry is intended to be a universal model to draw and design based on the same kind of universal structure so that Intuitive Geometry becomes a framework for an infinite number of projects. I believe the Intuitive Geometry system can be a great educational tool because we learn so much easier with colors and patterns.
Spectrum of Consciousness
The 64 hexagrams is a useful tool for exploring something as complex as the spectrum of human consciousness. Looking at the spectrum of consciousness through 8 primary themes makes it simpler to see a larger perspective while appreciating the subtle essence of each.
I recommend further study of the I Ching, Human Design system, Gene Keys, Kabbalah, Chakras, Astrology, Psychological Archetypes, personality spectrum, Numerology, Advaita Vedanta etc.
