from the source
Imagine that a being from an advanced culture gave you a toy designed to both entertain you and instruct you in the workings of our reality
matrix. The toy works like this: at any moment, you can freeze the flow of time into a very small slice which not only tells you the nature of the
moment, but why you chose it, the ramifications of having chosen it, and three other co-ordinates of change that create the moment and the choice.
Essentially, the I Ching, the gift of Fu Hsi, is such a toy. Any means of random selection can be used - counting yarrow stalks, tossing coins or a
binary computer program - to provide the hexagram which marks the quality of that moment. This hexagram is then interpreted by various methods and
then related to other hexagrams to provide an inclusive and holistic perspective on the evolution of that moment in time. The value of such knowledge,
however, comes from our ability to make use of it.
Notice that in the post from Poster Tablet over in ignorancedenied, that the program used to reveal codes is a hex viewer. Is this perhaps related to
the hexagram? Also, the all seeing eye is peppered throughout the source. However, the significance of the all seeing eye is something supported by
Poster Tablet is supporting, so it might not necessarily be relevant.
And a 2012 connection
According to this view, all of biological and cosmological time is approaching a point of concrescence in the near future. The McKenna brothers
went looking for possible dates for this concrescence and decided that the helical rising of the winter solstice sunrise in 2012 matched the
This based on somehow applying something just like the labyrinth to the I Ching
, except that the 'hexagram' used has 64 divisions, whereas
the blacklabyrinth has a different 'code' for it.
So in this thinking, the Black Labyrinth works as a cypher that decodes the actual code. Or something.
also, here is a page that professes to provide a free online version of the i ching oracle
