(see also black/white version, animated versions, and hypergraph applet)
Access to hexagrams: 01 / 08 / 16 / 24 / 32 / 40 / 48 / 56 / 64 | See: Commentary: A / B / C
[see PDF version]


Interpretations of each hexagram vary according to the column that you choose (Dialogue, Vision, etc). These six columns are parallel themes. You can explore links between parallel themes within each hexagram interpretation. This index can also be navigated using the traditional organization of hexagrams by houses. Each theme is also the subject of a special index and a map of relationships (both offering access to individual descriptions). One may be explored via a hypergraph applet.
