I Ching Study Guide – Table of Content

The images stem from the ideas. The words make the images clear. In order to fully express the ideas, there is nothing better than words. The words are a result of the images. This is why you can see the images by looking at the words. The images are dominated by the ideas. This is why you can see the ideas by examining the images. The ideas are fully captured by the images and the images made clear by the words.
(Wang Bi, 226–249)

 

I wish for all of us all that we – just as Wang Bi suggests – go beyond the words and look behind the images. So that we capture the ideas and gain a deeper understanding of reality.
