"Here the sun has sunk under the earth and is therefore darkened. The name of the hexagram means literally 'wounding of the bright'; hence the individual lines contain frequent references to wounding. The situation is the exact opposite of that in the foregoing hexagram. In the latter a wise man at the head of affairs has able helpers, and in company with them makes progress; here a man of dark nature is in a position of authority and brings harm to the wise and able man.See the James Legge translation of this hexagram.
One must not unresistingly let himself be swept along by unfavorable circumstances, nor permit his steadfastness to be shaken. He can avoid this by maintaining his inner light, while remaining outwardly yielding and tractable. With this attitude he can overcome even the greatest adversities. In some situations indeed a man must hide his light, in order to make his will prevail in spite of difficulties in his immediate environment. Perseverance must dwell in inmost consciousness and should not be discernible from without. Only thus is a man able to maintain his will in the face of difficulties."

This contemplative series is based on the ancient Chinese I Ching, also known as the "Book of Changes" in English, an ancient divination text and the oldest of the Chinese classics.
There are a total of 72 hexagrams but only 64 are known (the final 8 are multidimensional) which are ancient "bar codes," each one arranged in a unique sequence, assigning it a specific frequency. The resonance received from the hexagram code emanates a "visual software" that results in a metamorphic effect on the viewer.
