sammcdaid8 Connected - Bill Gates, the I Ching and binary code:

01010011 01100101 01100001 01110100 01110100 01101100 01100101
The word ‘Seattle’ represented in ASCII #binary code

Binary code was first introduced by the German mathematician and philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm #Leibniz during the 17th century. For many years he tried to find a system that converts logical verbal statements into purely #mathematical ones. He came across a classical #Chinese text called the 'I Ching’ or 'book of changes' which used what we now know as the type of binary #code. This book was initially written as a system of divination by the legendary Emperor and sage Fu Xi.

The Chinese BaGua and the Fu Xi array of #hexagrams is the very arrangement which led Leibnitz, to discover the binary system, the foundation of all digital language. Father Joachim Bouvet, a Jesuit priest in China, introduced this sequence to Leibnitz, who was astonished to find that when taking 0 for each solid line and 1 for each broken line and reading upwards on each of the hexagrams gave the sequences 000000, 000001, 000010, 000011 and so on. This is the binary notation for the numbers 0 to 63!
The #BaGua is the tool used in #FengShui practice. It is split into eight sections: 'Ba' meaning 8 and 'Gua' meaning trigram. Each section or Ba consists of two yao symbols which are either #yin or #yang. When put into a sequence it represents the fundamental principles of #reality. This type of binary code was used in ancient China and has sixy four possible pairs of trigrams called hexagrams. Confucius spent much of his life studying the I Ching and created a resurgence in interest across China. As I find myself in the home of Microsoft I wonder if #BillGates has also read the 'book of #magic'. The concept behind the ancient text is very simple: that the circumstances which occur in our lives - indeed the whole #universe- are the result of two interacting forces called yin and yang. It is this synthesis of all universal interactions which Liebniz was fasciated by and led towards a digital evolution 5000 years old.
