Symbols Ba Gua and mutual relations of people.
Poses of bodies and Chinese Book of Changes i-jing.

Trunk and thigh and abdomen form three levels of physical figure of human body, that corresponds with eight trigrams or symbols Ba Gua of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing. Accordingly it is possible to project values of eight trigrams or symbols Ba Gua on poses of human bodies and to analyze emotions of people during mutual relations.
Names and features, also symbolical images of eight symbols Ba Gua are described in comments or appendixes of the classical Chinese Book of Changes i-jing or I-Ching.

1 QIAN - QIAN - creativity - strength - sky.
Symbolical image of heaven or sky means unsteady air space, because three lines are entire.

2 DUI - DUI - permission - good fortune or pleasure - lake.

Or symbolical image of this symbol Ba Gua is bog which has firm surface or slough and unsteady swamp in depth.

3 LI - LI - clinging - clarity - fire.
Symbolical image of fire means firm fiery core and mobile external tongues of flame, because middle line in this trigram Ba Gua is break and external lines are entire.

4 ZHEN - ZHEN - arousing - quickness - thunder.
Symbolical image of thunder means electric discharge or zigzag of lightning disappearing at contact with ground, because two top lines in this symbol Ba Gua are break and bottom line is entire.

5 XUN - XUN - refinement - penetration - wind.
Symbolical image of wind means movement of air above firm ground, because two top lines are entire and bottom line is break.
Or symbolical image of this symbol Ba Gua is tree which has unsteady crone and motionless root.

6 KAN - KAN - immersion - danger - river.
Symbolical image of river means motionless banks and mobile water stream, because middle line in this symbol Ba Gua is entire and external lines are break.

7 GEN - GEN - keeping still - stability - mountain.

8 KUN - KUN - fulfillment - devotion - earth.
Symbolical image of arth means firm ground, because three lines are break.

In addition eight symbols Ba Gua in comments or appendixes of the classical Chinese Book of Changes i-jing or I-Ching are compared to hierarchy of children and parents in family, also with points of geographic direction or otherwise to tell geodetic orientation of space, that is shown on the chart.

eight symbols Ba Gua in appendixes of classical Chinese Book of Changes Entire lines in symbols Ba Gua - backward deviation of formal levels of physical body figure.
Break lines in symbols Ba Gua - forward deviation of formal levels of physical body figure.
Top lines - trunk.
Middle lines - abdomen.
Bottom lines - thigh.
Letters N - NE - E - SE - S - SW - W - NW mean points of geographic direction.

-

1 north - north - father.
North is connected with middle of winter, that corresponds to cold emotions.

5 northwest - northwest - first elder daughter.
Northwest is connected with end of autumn and beginning of winter, that corresponds to combination of sad and cold emotions.

3 west - west - second middle daughter.
West is connected with middle of autumn, that corresponds to sad emotions.

2 southwest - southwest - third younger daughter.
Southwest is connected with end of summer and beginning of autumn, that corresponds to combination of warm and sad emotions.

8 south - south - mother.
South is connected with middle of summer, that corresponds to warm emotions.

7 southeast - southeast - third younger son.
Southeast is connected with termination of spring and beginning of summer, that corresponds to combination of joyful and warm emotions.

6 east - east - second middle son.
East is connected with middle of spring, that corresponds to joyful emotions.

4 northeast - northeast - first elder son.
Northeast is connected with termination of winter and beginning of spring, that corresponds to combination of cold and joyful emotions.
It is necessary to tell that parities of geographic directions with symbols Ba Gua in comments or appendixes of the classical Chinese Book of Changes are others. But however it is necessary to consider the shown parities if reference points of geographic direction at space of physical reality of universe should be compared with symbols of eight Ba Gua of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, that there can be essential in the context of philosophical concepts of topological map of Feng Shui.

Alongside with children and parents in hierarchy of family attitudes, also along with cardinal points of geographic direction it is possible to consider other philosophical and psychological values according to which symbols Ba Gua can be compared to poses of human bodies and emotional reactions in mutual relations of people.
In particular it is possible to consider values which are shown on the following chart.

children and parents in hierarchy of family with points of geographic direction Impartial impassivity - entire top lines and backward deviation of trunk.
Partial preference - break top lines and forward deviation of trunk.
Restraint indifference - entire middle lines and backward deviation of abdomen.
Unrestraint predilection - break middle lines and forward deviation of abdomen.
Isolative segregation - entire bottom lines and backward deviation of thigh.
Connective integration - break bottom lines and forward deviation of thigh.

1 strength - impartial impassivity - restraint indifference - isolative segregation.

2 fortune - partial preference - restraint indifference - isolative segregation.

3 clarity - impartial impassivity - unrestraint predilection - isolative segregation.

4 arousing - partial preference - unrestraint predilection - isolative segregation.

5 refinement - impartial impassivity - restraint indifference - connective integration.

6 danger - partial preference - restraint indifference - connective integration.

7 stability - impartial impassivity - unrestraint predilection - connective integration.

8 devotion - partial preference - unrestraint predilection - connective integration.

For example, if positions of trunk and thigh and abdomen form positional configuration which corresponds with combination of 1st and 5th symbols Ba Gua then attitudes are impartial impassive and restraint indifferent, but emotional reaction of one person has parameters of isolative segregation, and emotions of second participant of mutual relations are disposed to connective integration.
Look complex information on parities of symbols Ba Gua with emotional reactions and poses of people in gallery where symbolical images of 36 configurations correspond to possible positions of trunk and thigh and abdomen of two participants of mutual relations.

gallery of configurations

Symbolical images of 36 configurations in gallery are correlated with 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, that is shown in the table.

symbolical images of 36 configurations with 64 hexagrams i-jing in the table

Numbers above in cells of the table specify serial numbers of 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon i-jing.
Numbers below in cells of the table specify numerical values of 36 configurations of human bodies. Namely numerical values which develop of serial numbers of eight symbols Ba Gua and correspond to poses of two participants of mutual relations.
Eight configurations in cells of the table have one numerical value and correspond with hexagram which is formed by identical symbols Ba Gua.
Twenty eight configurations in cells of the table have double numerical values and correspond with hexagrams which are formed by different symbols Ba Gua.
For example, hexagram 52nd is formed by identical symbols Ba Gua which have serial number 7, that there corresponds with configuration 77. And hexagrams 47th and 60th are formed by different symbols Ba Gua which have serial numbers 2 and 6, that corresponds with configuration which has double numerical value 26/62.
As ciphers of numerical values in configurations, also top and bottom symbols Ba Gua in hexagrams of canon i-jing correspond with body figures of left and right participants of mutual relations.
But it is necessary to consider that top symbols Ba Gua in hexagrams designate external and receding according to philosophical concepts of canon of i-jing. And bottom symbols Ba Gua in hexagrams designate internal and coming. Therefore it is possible to correlate left body figures in configurations with external and receding, and right body figures with internal and coming.
Namely it is possible to differentiate left and right figures of human bodies in configurations according to values of top and bottom symbols Ba Gua in hexagrams of Chinese canon of changes i-jing.

Following page compares symbols Ba Gua and poses of human bodies to numbers of Pythagorean numerology and gods of Greek mythology.
