six levels of physical body figure

 

Poses of canon i-jing and symbols of human body.
The third page systematizes poses of physical human body according to 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, namely according to positions of six formal levels of trunk - abdomen - thigh - crown of head - chin - knees.
Also levels of physical figure of human body and symbols of canon i-jing on third page are compared to astronomical orbits of heavenly planets or celestial spheres of solar system.

Six levels of physical body figure.
Changes of poses and symbols of canon i-jing.

Poses of human body are caused not only positions of three basic physical levels but also movements of head and knees, that is connected with mobility of cervical section of backbone and knee joints, as shown in the chart.

movements of head with mobility of cervical section of backbone and knee joints

Trunk - abdomen - thigh are three basic levels of physical body figure, namely complex of torso which correspond with 8 trigrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing.
Head is top complex which consists of two levels of physical body figure, namely crown and chin which in aggregate with trunk - abdomen - thigh correspond to symbols of 32 pentagrams of the Chinese canon i-jing.
Knees too are component of physical body figure, that in aggregate with levels of torso and head correspond to symbols of 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon i-jing.
Crown of head - sixth top line.
Chin - fifth line.
Trunk - fourth line.
Abdomen - third line.
Thigh - second line.
Knees - first bottom line.

Deviations of head from vertical of balance can be mobile concerning point N which corresponds with neck or otherwise to tell cervical section of backbone.
Crown of head and chin correspond to points M and P which are mobile.
Point M determines forward or backward deviations of crown.
Point P determines forward or backward movements of chin.
Points M and P deviate from vertical of balance together with point N or cervical section of backbone, but also can move independently.
Deviations of trunk can be mobile in point T which within physical figure of body is located between cervical section of backbone and loins. Namely between points N and O which keep position near to vertical of balance.
If cervical section of backbone or loins deviate from vertical axis of balance then complex equipoise arch of physical body figure must be formed.
If cervical section of backbone or loins or knees considerably deviate from vertical of balance then such movements cannot be considered as poses. But such movements can be considered from the view point of  functional or otherwise to tell gymnastic dynamics of body shapes.
Abdomen can deviate from vertical of balance irrespective of physical movements of other formal levels of body.
Deviations of thigh can be mobile in point S which within physical body figure is located between loins and knees, namely between points O and K.
Loins keeps position near to vertical axis of balance, and knees cannot deviate considerably backward, that limits mobility of thigh.
Knees can have backward deflection from vertical of balance in that case when knee joints form elastic cranked arch which compensates weight of body.
Or knees can have forward deflection from vertical of balance in that case when muscles of thigh and shin form muscular arch which amortizes weight of body.
Deviations of knees from vertical of balance can have different positions, and consequently values of emotional conditions can be ambiguous. Namely if right and left knees have forward and backward deflections then such positions are ambiguous from the view point of emotions which are shown in human body pose.
Diverse deviations of knees from vertical of balance can be caused by weariness of muscles without connection with displays of emotions. Therefore in poses of human bodies can be considered only identical deviations of knees from vertical of balance.
Pay attention, that the shown points of physical figure of human body can be compared with astronomical orbits of seven visible planets of solar system, and in essence with celestial mathematical sizes which form harmony of heavenly spheres of world space.
Ankle joints - point L - Sun SL - gravitational center of solar system or epicenter of universe according to heliocentric model of world space.
Ankle joints bear the biggest physical weight of human body in comparison with other formal levels. Consequently ankle joints correspond with the Sun which is gravitational center of solar system.
Knee joints - point K - planet Mercury ME - distance from the Sun is 0,387 astronomical units.
Mercury according to rules of astrology is celestial planet which symbolizes movement, that will be coordinated with knee joints. Because deviations of knees from vertical of balance are displayed in changes of positions of all levels in physical figure of human body.
Hip joints - thigh - point S - planet Venus VE - distance from the Sun is 0,723 astronomical units.
Venus according to rules of astrology is celestial planet which personifies female character traits, that corresponds with smooth and slow movements, also with emotional conditions which are shown in poses of human bodies as a result of deviations of thigh from vertical of balance.
Thigh moves more slowly and smoothly rather than trunk, and consequently corresponds with Venus which personifies womanly character traits.
Lumbar section of backbone - point O - planet Earth ZE - distance from the Sun is 1 astronomical unit.
Earth is center of universe according to geocentric model of world space. That can be coordinated with the fixed position of waist which keeps position near to vertical of balance in poses of human bodies.
Abdomen - Moon LN - astronomical satellite and heavenly body which is nearest to Earth. That can be coordinated with abdomen which is connected with fixed waist within physical figure of human body but possesses independent mobility and can deviate from vertical of balance.
Moon according to rules of astrology is heavenly body which personifies vital energy that corresponds to abdomen. Because movements of abdomen are displays of emotional conditions according to which human person expresses own personality or degree of personal manifestations which are caused by realization of vital energy.
Chest section of backbone - trunk - point T - planet Mars MA - distance from the Sun is 1,524 astronomical units.
Mars according to rules of astrology is celestial planet which personifies courageous character traits that corresponds with fast and vigorous movements, also with emotional conditions which are shown in poses of human bodies as a result of deviations of trunk from vertical of balance.
Trunk moves more quickly and vigorously rather than thigh, and consequently corresponds with Mars which personifies male courageous character traits.
Cervical section of backbone - point N - belt of asteroids - distance from the Sun approximately between 2,11 and 4,33 astronomical units.
Belt of asteroids is congestion of heavenly bodies which were formed as a result of destruction of planet Phaeton. That can be coordinated with neck which alongside with waist determines balance of physical figure of human body. But also neck is formal level according to which crown of head and chin can move independently.
Near diameter of belt of asteroids on distance of 2,11 astronomical units from the Sun corresponds with bottom part of cervical section of backbone.
Distant diameter of belt of asteroids on distance of 4,33 astronomical units from the Sun corresponds with top part of cervical section of backbone.
Basis of skull - chin - point P - planet Jupiter UP - distance from the Sun is 5,203 astronomical units.
Jupiter according to rules of astrology is celestial planet which personifies supreme deity of heavenly hierarchy of mythological gods. Namely Jupiter is astrological symbol of authoritative actions which are dictated by personal will but are caused by public necessity and social role of personality, that can be coordinated with chin which deviates from vertical of balance together with trunk and bottom part of cervical section of backbone but can move independently.
Crown of head - point M - planet Saturn SA - distance from the Sun is 9,539 astronomical units.
Saturn according to rules of astrology is celestial planet which personifies deity which is equivalent to Jupiter, namely having similar supreme status in space of heavenly hierarchy of mythological gods. That can be coordinated with crown of head which too alongside with chin deviates from vertical of balance together with trunk and top part of cervical section of backbone but can move independently.
Astronomical orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, also invisible planets of solar system can be correlated to joints of hands within physical figure of human body.
Shoulder joints - Jupiter.
Elbow joints - Saturn.
Wrists - Uranus - distance from the Sun is 19,19 astronomical units.
Third phalanx joints of fingers - Neptune - distance from the Sun is 29,77-30,44 astronomical units.
Second phalanx joints of fingers - Pluto - distance from the Sun is 30-39,65 astronomical units.
First phalanx joints of fingers - Proserpine - distance from the Sun is 68 astronomical units.
Proserpine is invisible planet which astronomers have found at beginning of 21 century and have incorrectly named by name of goddess ERIS.
Because name of goddess PROSERPINE before has been given to asteroid in space between Mars and Jupiter.
Tips of fingers - Chiron - distance from the Sun is unknown.
Chiron is unknown planet which is very near to the Sun and consequently is invisible, but this heavenly body is not astronomical asteroid in space between Mars and Jupiter.
More detailed information about parities of invisible planets of solar system with joints of hands, also about ratio of astronomical distances of world space with geometrical proportions of physical figure of human body I shall try to publish in the future.
Total according to symbols of 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing and six formal levels of physical figure of human body it is possible to systematize sixty four poses, that is shown on the chart.

hexagrams of Chinese canon of changes and sixty four poses of physical body

Dark contours on the chart show physical figure of human body.
Dark contours are identical in all 64 poses.
Deviations of six levels of physical body figure from vertical of balance are designated by white zigzag lines.
About ratio of six levels of physical body figure with emotional displays of human  personality and symbols of canon i-jing it is told in old Chinese book which was named as Collection of Treatise about Median Harmony and has been written by Li Tao Chun.
"In Gua signs there can be three Yao levels which display three posing personifications and primary beginnings of human personality. When six Yao levels in Gua signs are represented then they display six emptiness and joints of human personality".

Following page shows poses which within physical body figure are systematized by means of sixteen tetragrams of the Chinese canon i-jing.
