human poses and canon of changes i-jing

 

Physical body figure and human poses.
The fourth page describes emotional conditions which are connected with poses which are caused by positions of three formal levels of torso and crown of head. Also poses which are caused by positions of four levels which within physical body figure correspond with backbone, that corresponds with symbols of sixteen tetragrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, also with psychological phenomena of human personality in the context of analytical psychology of Carl Gustav Jung and old Indian philosophical system Nyaya.

Four levels of physical body figure.
Human poses and canon of changes i-jing.

Human consciousness cannot perceive emotional conditions in poses which correspond with 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, because six formal levels of physical body figure form very complex design for perception. Therefore it is possible to consider only some formal levels which within physical body figure correspond to the most essential emotional displays of human personality.
In particular if to not consider knees and chin then it is possible to analyze emotional conditions which are connected with positions of crown of head - trunk - abdomen - thigh, that is shown on the chart.

six formal levels of physical body figure as complex design for perception Movements of crown of head - trunk - abdomen - thigh within physical figure of human body are interconnected.
If trunk deviates forward then crown of head has backward deviation.
If trunk deviates backward then crown of head has forward deviation.
Or crown of head can deviate from vertical of balance irrespective of trunk.
If thigh deviates forward then muscles of abdomen strain.
If thigh deviates backward then muscles of abdomen relax.
Or movements of abdomen can be not connected with deviations of thigh from vertical of balance.
Formal level of chin within the shown chart in attention is not accepted, and consequently is combined with cervical section of backbone, namely points P and N are incorporated and are considered as fixed.

Crown of head - trunk - abdomen - thigh have essential value from the view point of emotions which can be shown in poses of human bodies. Because these formal kevels correspond to four mental functions of human personality in the context of analytical psychology of Carl Gustav Jung.
Because these levels of physical body figure correspond to astronomical orbits of Saturn, Mars, Moon, Venus, which in space of astrological circle are dominating planets in cardinal zodiacal signs of four fundamental world elements which are connected with mental functions of human personality.
Crown of head - Saturn - Capricorn - ground - logical function.
Trunk - Mars - Aries - fire - ethical function.
Abdomen - Moon - Crab - water - intuitive function.
Thigh - Venus - Libra - air - sensory function.
Crown of head and trunk form rational or mental sphere according to which people show emotions which are caused by thinking.
Abdomen and thigh form irrational or sensual sphere according to which people show emotions which are caused by feelings.
Look information about ratio of formal levels of physical figure of human body with astronomical orbits of planets in solar system on the previous page in this section of website.
Look information about four fundamental world elements and mental functions of human personality on pages of other website emotions.64g.ru in section which is named as analytical physiognomy.

Total according to four formal levels of human physical body figure it is possible to analyze poses and to estimate values of emotional conditions which correspond to symbols of 16 tetragrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, that is shown on the chart.

Crown of head and trunk - two top lines in tetragrams of canon i-jing - mental sphere.
Abdomen and thigh - two bottom lines in tetragrams of canon i-jing - sensual sphere.
If lines are unary then levels of physical body figure are deflected backward.
If lines are binary then levels of physical body figure are deflected forward.
Dark contours show body figure.
White contours are markers which designate deviations of body levels from vertical of balance.
Points N and O are fixed, because bottom part of cervical section of backbone and waist are levels which do not deviate from vertical of balance of physical body figure.
Chin is fixed and combined with bottom part of cervical section of backbone.
Numbers on the chart are combined numerical values of 16 tetragrams of canon i-jing.
Left digits of numerical values designate top lines in tetragrams, that corresponds to positions of head crown.
Digit 1 designates binary line and forward deviation of head crown.
Digit 2 designates unary lines and backward deviation of head crown.
Right digits of numerical values designate combinations of bottom lines in tetragrams and serial numbers of eight trigrams of Chinese canon i-jing, that corresponds to positions of trunk - abdomen - thigh.
Positions of head crown within mental sphere mean emotions according to which logical estimation of perceiving information can be shown.
Forward deviation of head crown means positive estimation.
Backward deviation of head crown means negative estimation.
It is possible to tell that positions of head crown correspond to logical operators YES TRULY and NOT INCORRECTLY according to which human attitude to perceiving information can be positive or negative.
Positions of trunk within mental sphere mean emotions according to which ethical appreciation of perceiving information can be shown.
Forward deviation of trunk means positive appreciation.
Backward deviation of trunk means negative appreciation.
It is possible to tell that positions of trunk correspond to ethical principles and norms according to which human attitude to perceiving information can be benevolent and favorable or malevolent and unfavorable.
If deviations of trunk and crown of head from vertical of balance are unidirectional, namely if identical negative or positive ethical and logical estimations of perceiving information are combined then emotional condition seems hypertrophied or hyperbolized, that corresponds to rules of analytical psychology because ethics and logics are mutually exclusive rational mental functions of human personality.
Positions of abdomen within sensual sphere mean emotions according to which intuitive predilection of perceiving information can be shown.
Forward deviation of abdomen means positive predilection.
Backward deviation of abdomen means negative predilection.
It is possible to tell that positions of abdomen correspond with intuitive predilection according to which human attitude to perceiving information can be easy and unpretentious or uneasy and pretentious.
Positions of thigh within sensual sphere mean emotions according to which sensory or otherwise to tell sensitive predisposition to perceiving information can be shown.
Forward deviation of thigh means positive predisposition.
Backward deviation of thigh means negative predisposition.
It is possible to tell that positions of thigh correspond to sensitive preferences according to which human attitude to perceiving information can be tolerant or intolerant.
If thigh and abdomen have unidirectional deviations from vertical of balance, namely if identical positive or negative intuitive and sensitive estimations of perceiving information are combined then emotional condition seems hypertrophied or hyperbolized, that corresponds to rules of analytical psychology, because intuition and sensory are mutually exclusive irrational mental functions of human personality.
Total logical perception of information is connected with crown of head, and three mental functions have connections with formal levels which within physical body figure correspond with backbone. Namely median skeleton or otherwise to tell main psycho-physiological core on which anatomic structures of physical body are formed, also basic psychological phenomena which form human personality, that is shown on the chart.

median skeleton or main psycho-physiological core of anatomic structures Chin - top part of cervical section of backbone - natural forward bend.
Trunk - chest section of backbone - natural backward bend.
Abdomen - lumbar section of backbone - natural forward bend.
Thigh - sacral section of backbone - natural backward bend.
Crown of head and knees are not connected with backbone and consequently are independent in relation to basic skeleton of physical body figure. But these levels too form construction of human personality, and in essence crown of head and knees are connected with psychical displays of spirit which is global source of life and movement, that is in detail described on following pages in this section of website.

Natural bends of backbone correspond with strained or relaxed deviations of four formal body levels from vertical of balance.
Chin - forward deviation is relaxed - backward deviation demands straining of muscles .
Trunk - forward deviation demands straining of muscles - backward deviation is relaxed.
Abdomen - forward deviation is relaxed - backward deviation demands straining of muscles.
Thigh - forward deviation demands straining of muscles - backward deviation is relaxed.
It is necessary to consider that forward deviations of chin and abdomen, also backward deviations of trunk and thigh can be strained, namely can be unnatural in comparison with natural movements of body figure if are caused by deliberate emotions which can be displayed in poses alongside with inadvertent emotional conditions.
In particular backward deviation of thigh can be strained if person wishes to look graceful and bends waist, that demands straining of buttocks for spatial balancing of body figure, because point O deviates from vertical of balance.
Backbone within physical body figure has connection with four levels which too correspond with tetragrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-jing, that forms multilevel combination of symbols which correspond with mental functions of human personality in the context of Jungian analytical psychology, also with psychological complex of phenomena or components of thinking in the old Indian philosophical system Nyaya, that is shown on the chart.

psychological complex of thinking in the old Indian philosophical system Nyaya

SHABDA or evidence - logical function - crown of head and chin - Saturn and Jupiter.
UPAMANA or comparison - ethical function - trunk - Mars.
ANUMANA or conclusion - intuitive function - abdomen - Moon.
PRATYAKSHA or perception - sensory function - thigh - Venus.
SHABDA and UPAMANA - rational perception of information or SALVIKALPAKA.
ANUMANA and PRATYAKSHA - irrational perception of information or NIRVIKALPAKA.
Crown of head and three levels of torso - tetragram of conscious thinking.
Chin and three levels of torso - tetragram of subconscious thinking.
Crown of head corresponds with objective logics or LAUKIKA, and consequently tetragram of conscious thinking determines reliable perception of information or otherwise to tell knowledge about objects of world validity.
Chin corresponds with subjective logics or ALAUKIKA, and consequently tetragram of subconscious thinking determines uncertain perception of information.
Forward deviations of formal levels of physical body figure - extrapolation of objective perception of information.
Backward deviations of formal levels of physical body figure - intropolation of subjective perception of information.
Extrapolation of objective perception is connected with extraversion.
Intropolation of subjective perception is connected with introversion.
If crown of head deviates forward then objective logics is guided on objective perception of information.
If crown of head deviates backward then objective logics is guided on subjective perception of information.
If chin deviates forward then subjective logics is guided on objective perception of information.
If chin deviates backward then subjective logics is guided on subjective perception of information.
If trunk deviates forward then tendency to objective ethical appreciation of perceiving information is shown.
If trunk deviates backward then tendency to subjective ethical appreciation of perceiving information is shown.
If abdomen deviates forward then tendency to objective intuitive estimation of perceiving information is shown.
If abdomen deviates backward then tendency to subjective intuitive estimation of perceiving information is shown.
If thigh deviates forward then tendency to objective sensitive estimation of perceiving information is shown.
If thigh deviates backward then tendency to subjective sensitive estimation of perceiving information is shown.
Forward deviation of chin corresponds with natural bend of cervical section of backbone.
Backward deviation of chin contradicts to natural bend of cervical section of backbone.
Therefore people focus subjective logics on objective perception of information and learn objects of world validity by means of subconscious thinking. But according to mystical concepts of old Indian philosophical system Nyaya if perception of objects of world validity is exposed on critical analysis by objective logics then true knowledge is carried out.
Therefore Gautama or founder of philosophical system Nyaya had second name as Aksapada, that in the context of Indian Sanskrit matters "looking on foots". As it is possible to assume that during meditative reflections or dialogue with people this old Indian philosopher looked at foots, and in essence Aksapada deflected chin backward and deviated crown of head forward, and as a result he had intropolation of subjective logics and extrapolation of objective logic perception of information, that created conditions of correct mind with clearing of subconscious thinking.
More detail information about mystical concepts of old Indian philosophical system Nyaya I shall try to publish in the future. Also in the future I shall try to publish more detail information about conceptual ratio of old Indian philosophical system Nyaya and analytical psychology of Carl Gustav Jung.
