  Yi Jing, Oracle of the Moon

to maintain this website


This website has been nominated for the Benelux Enterprise Award.
"EU Business News has become aware of your exceptional contributions and has personally submitted a nomination for YI Jing to potentially join the shortlist this year."

My reason for making this website: Ancient Chinese characters are ideograms, containing several images. When a problem arises, these characters give a wide field of meaning when used in an answer, either literally or as a random text. Since Quantum mechanics tells us that random may not be that random, it is possible to build an oracle with this language. The Yijing (or I Ching) is exactly that. It has been used for around 3 millennia by rulers, generals and later also by common people.
About multiple and random answers for a problem, see 'Design Thinking'. Compare it to standing on a certain ridge in the Alps. When spitting to the right it will end up in the Donau, spitting to the left will end up in the Rhine. "Random" is like that ridge, it adds another way of thinking to your regular paths, and it combines the two in your subconscious: the source of genuine and innovative creativity.
I love the old characters but my aim is this real creativity. I want to share it so others can benefit from it.
