Created over 5,000 years ago by Chinese Emperor Fu Xi, the I Ching has been studied along with modern science, and the discoveries are described by Charles H. Chen, MD, FACOG in his latest book, “I Ching (Yi Jing) and Modern Science: Its Application for the Benefit of Human Society”.
Among the greatest Chinese contributions to mankind, the I Ching (Yi Jing) continues to throw surprising discoveries. The creation of this oracle tool goes back to ancient times and keen observation of nature and the universe. Its key components are the Yin and Yang, four phenomena, the trigram, two sets of eight trigrams, 64 hexagrams, and two sets of 64 trigrams.
While I Ching has been extensively studied, few scholars have attempted to correlate it with modern science, since they lack adequate knowledge. In his book, Charles H. Chen, MD, FACOG has made an important attempt to show how I Ching and its components are consistent with the discoveries of modern science.
The secrets of I Ching are slowly being discovered along with progress in modern sciences. Charles H. Chen reveals that the Yin-Yang duality of the universe correlates with the matter duality as discovered by quantum mechanics. The four phenomena correlate with the DNA and RNA configurations, while the trigram, a triple of the Yin-Yang configuration, correlates with codon, a three-chemical configuration of DNA and RNA. Similarly, the two sets of 64 trigrams correlate with the two sets of 64 codons in DNA and RNA.
Yi Jing’s hexagrams and lines represent external factors of change. For oracles, they offer advice on various issues and dilemmas faced by the seekers. The symbols and images used in them are derived from the collective unconscious, as shown in the research of Dr. Carl Jung, who described them as innate and universal datum.
Charles H. Chen, MD, FACOG is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He was in the private practice of OB/GYN for many years in the United States and is now retired. Charles has spent a great deal of time researching the findings of modern science, in particular research on DNA/RNA, along with extensive studies of the I Ching. With a rich knowledge of both fields, he has brought new light to shine on the ancient wisdom contained in the I Ching.
