Poses of body and eight trigrams of Chinese canon i-jing.
The second page shows poses which are systematized by means of eight trigrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing according to three levels of physical figure of human body, namely according to positions of trunk - abdomen - thigh.
Also body poses and eight trigrams of canon i-jing are compared to basic components of human essence in the context of Hermopolis cosmogony system of ancient Egypt and Chinese philosophy of Taoism.

Positions of three levels of human body.
Poses and eight trigrams of canon i-jing.

Human body is capable to do complex and very diverse movements which cannot be described in all completeness. But physical figure of body from the view point of emotional displays of human personality is logic system according to which significant or otherwise to tell essential movements are connected with basic formal levels which correspond to symbols of the Chinese canon of changes are i-jing. Also with basic constructive elements of universe and structural components of anthropocosmic image according to which psycho-physiological essence of human personality is created.
The most important and essential part of physical figure of human body is the torso which consists of three levels, namely trunk - abdomen - thigh, that it is possible to see on the chart.

elements of universe and structural components of anthropocosmic image

Mobile are trunk and thigh, that corresponds to points T and S, and middle level of body is motionless center concerning which movements can be occured. Namely positions of trunk and thigh change concerning the point O which corresponds to loins and does not deviate from vertical balance of human body.
Point O corresponds to the centre of gravity and golden section of human body. Than concurrence of point O with mathematical size of golden section and gravity centre is more exact then physical figure of body is especially balanced.
Look information about golden section and geometrical proportions of human body on pages of other website: phantomgallery.64g.ru.
Loins in the context of Chinese philosophy of Taoism is area where true energy can be harmonized, that is written in old book which was named as Inscription in Hundred Hieroglyphs.
"That is place in organism where sky and ground, eight trigrams, five movements, four images gather and incorporate. Before divisions of sky and ground there was unique particle of divine light, and it was the Supreme Ultimate in that place which is located below heart and above kidneys as though inside where the continuous stream of ideas concentrates, that was called by our patriarchs as combination of movement and rest. Here true energy can be ordered and harmonized. Here the truth of life stays also authenticity of absence comes to light".

Loins keeps constant position and does not deviate from vertical axis of balance. Therefore loins can be not considered in poses of human bodies.
But middle level of body alongside with loins has abdomen which can deviate from vertical of balance irrespective of loins. Therefore in poses of human bodies it is necessary to consider positions of trunk - abdomen - thigh, that corresponds to points TRS.
Total three levels of torso are essential in poses of human body, that corresponds to symbols of eight trigrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing. Because trigrams of canon i-jing consist of three lines according to which it is possible to systematize poses which are caused by deviations of trunk - abdomen - thigh from vertical axis of balance.
Top lines - trunk.
Middle lines - abdomen.
Bottom lines - thigh.
If line is unary then formal level of physical body has backward deflection.
If line is binary then formal level of physical body figure has forward deflection.
On middle level of body figure if line is unary then abdomen is strained and has the reduced outlines.
And if line is binary then abdomen is relaxed and has the increased outlines.
In total eight trigrams of canon i-jing correspond to eight basic poses of human body, that is shown on the chart.

eight trigrams of canon i-jing and poses of human body on the chart Dark contours show figure of body.
White contours are markers which designate deviations of body levels from vertical balance of physical shapes.
If white contour is visible behind of body figure then corresponding formal level is deflected forward.
If white contour is visible ahead of body figure then corresponding formal level is deflected backward.
White contour on middle level can be visible only ahead of body figure when abdomen is strained and has reduction of outlines.

The shown figures are conditional images which can be compared to bodies of real people for identification of poses.
Or for identification of poses can be used images where deviations of formal body levels from vertical axis of balance are designated by zigzag lines.

deviations of formal body levels from vertical axis of balance

Pay attention to feature according to which physical figure of human body and logical system of eight trigrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing are commensurable.
If trunk deviates from vertical backward then muscles of back relax.
If trunk deviates from vertical forward then muscles of back strain.
If thigh deviates from vertical forward then muscles of buttocks strain.
If thigh deviates from vertical backward then muscles of buttocks relax.
If abdomen has the reduced outlines then abdominal muscles strain.
If abdomen has the increased outlines then abdominal muscles relax.
Straining and relaxation of muscles in the shown poses are coordinated with rules of the canon i-jing according to which unary lines are considered as strong, and binary lines as weak. But this coordination is true at level of abdomen, but inverse at levels of trunk and thigh where unary lines are connected with relaxation, and binary lines with straining of muscles.
Because eight trigrams from the view point of Chinese canon i-jing are top and bottom parts of 64 hexagrams. But logical complex of symbols of canon i-jing in the offered anthroponomic system is compared with physical design of human body, namely eight trigrams correspond to positions of trunk - abdomen - thigh.
Trunk means emotions which express degree of public communication.
If trunk has forward deflection then person is predisposed to communication and aspires to social interrelations.
If trunk has backward deflection then person is not predisposed to communication and avoids social interrelations.
Abdomen means emotions which express pretentious presentation or unpretentious manifestation of personality.
If abdomen is strained then person tries to make impression on people. Namely man or woman aspires to pretentious presentation and constrains unpretentious manifestation of own personality.
If abdomen is weakened then person does not try to make impression. Namely man or woman does not aspire to pretentious presentation and supposes easy manifestation of own personality.
Person possesses cheerfulness if abdomen is expressed from the view point of psychological characteristics which are connected with constant physical parameters of body constitution. And if abdomen is not expressed then person limits vital displays. Accordingly in poses of human bodies dynamic straining of abdomen symbolizes emotional pretension, and relaxation of abdominal muscles means absence of pretentious restraint.
Thigh means emotions which express intensity of readiness for actions.
If thigh is deflected forward then person is predisposed to active actions and realization of desires.
If thigh is deflected backward then person is not predisposed to active actions and realization of desires.
Also it is possible to compare values of emotional conditions which are connected to positions of three levels of torso in poses of people with three first beginnings which are basic structural components of human essence in philosophy of Taoism and alchemy of ancient China.
Trunk - spiritual strength CHEN.
Abdomen - vital energy CHI.
Thigh - seed or energetic potency CHING.
Look information about ratio of formal levels of physical figure of body shapes and symbols of canon i-jing with components of human essence according to concepts of philosophies of Taoism and alchemy of ancient China on 5th page in this section of website.
Also it is possible to compare values of emotional conditions which are connected to positions of three levels of torso in poses of people with deities which personify basic structural components of human essence in the context of mythology of ancient Egypt, and in particular according to mythological concepts of cosmogony system of Hermopolis.
Trunk - NIAU and NIAUT - emptiness.
Deviation forward - NIAU - male deity - progression of emptiness.
Deviation backward - NIAUT - female deity - regression of emptiness.
Abdomen - TENEMU and TENEMUT - disappearance.
Deviation forward - TENEMU - male deity - projection of disappearance.
Deviation backward - TENEMUT - female deity - rejection of disappearance.
Thigh - GEREH and GEREHT - absence.
Deviation forward - GEREH - male deity - procession of absence.
Deviation backward - GEREHT - female deity - recession of absence.
This three pairs of male and female divine essences in the context of Hermopolis cosmogony of ancient Egypt are basis for existence of unobvious material substance of universe. Also this three pairs of divine essences are prototypes of eight gods which personify occurrence of objective matter and existence of Great Ogdoad, that is equivalent to symbols of four digrams and eight trigrams of the Chinese canon i-jing.

Abdomen - projection of disappearance - augmentation of vital energy CHI.
Thigh - procession of absence - liberation of energetic potency CHING.

To male deities of Great Ogdoad in cosmogony of Hermopolis in the shown list there correspond trigrams which have bottom binary lines, that corresponds with forward deviation of thigh.
To female deities of Great Ogdoad in cosmogony of Hermopolis in the shown list there correspond trigrams which have bottom unary lines, that corresponds with backward deviation of thigh.
Eight trigrams in the shown list are symbols of logical sequence of physical exercises according to which founders of Chinese philosophy of Taoism, also experts of alchemy and masters of fighting arts of ancient China develop three basic structural components of human essence, namely vital energy CHI and spiritual strength CHEN, also seed of life or otherwise to tell energetic potency CHING.
In particular it is written in old Chinese book which has name as Step Ways of Perfection at School of Xing Yi Quan.
"First true of perfection: train seed to transform into energy.
Second true of perfection: train energy to transform into spirit.
Third true of perfection: train spirit to come into emptiness".

Or it is written in old Chinese which has name as Science in School of Eight Trigrams.
"Perfection in skill and transformation in spirit are differ in fighting arts. Spiritual practice in fighting arts is coordinated with forms of eight trigrams. Therefore disclosing and concealment, movement and rest, attack and retreat at school of eight trigrams conducts to secret boundless".
Also eight trigrams of canon i-jing in the shown list are equivalent to gods of Great Ogdoad in cosmogony of Hermopolis of ancient Egypt. And actually eight trigrams are logical system of symbols according to which not only founders of Chinese philosophy of Taoism or experts of alchemy and fighting arts of ancient China develop basic structural components of human essence, but also Egyptian pharaohs and priests carried out formation of psycho-physiological matrixes of perfect physical bodies and immortal souls.
Serial numbers of eight trigrams in the shown list correspond to sequence which has been established by Fu Hsi who was legendary emperor of ancient China and founder of the canon of changes i-jing. It is necessary to consider that eight trigrams in the context of Chinese canon i-jing are top and bottom parts of 64 hexagrams, but in the shown anthroponomic system these symbols correspond with three levels of torso within physical figure of human body, that is possible to see in the table.

eight trigrams of Chinese canon i-jing and parts of 64 hexagrams

Verticals and horizontals of the table correspond with trigrams of canon i-jing.
Cells of the table correspond with 64 hexagrams of canon i-jing.
Hexagrams in cells of the table are connections of top and bottom trigrams on verticals and horizontals.
Two thin top lines in hexagrams correspond with head within physical figure of human body.
One thin bottom line in hexagrams corresponds with knees within physical figure of body.
Three fat lines in hexagrams correspond with three formal levels of torso.
Names of eight trigrams are specified at the left, namely values which have been established by Fu Hsi or legendary emperor of ancient China and founder of the canon of changes i-jing.
Look additional information about values of eight trigrams of Chinese canon i-jing on pages of this website in section which is named as configurations of poses.

Following page systematizes poses of physical human body by means of 64 hexagrams of canon i-jing and according to levels of torso, also head and knees.
