Book of Changes, is an ancient Chinese divination text and the oldest of the Chinese classics. Possessing a history of more than two and a half millennia of commentary and interpretation, the I Ching is an influential text read throughout the world, providing inspiration to the worlds of religion, psychoanalysis, business, literature, and art.

The I Ching philosophy supposes a universe ruled by the principle of change triggered by the dialectic relation between opposites.

The I Ching or Change Classic. as it is sometimes called, is only surpassed in copies in print by the Christian bible. Its legendary origins are said to trace back to China’s mythological first emperor, Fu Hsi, 5000 years ago. Of course, as is standard fare for many ancient Chinese mysteries, no one really knows its origin.

Create a definition for this class. About the I ching, a general exponation of how a reading takes place, the ways there are of consulting the book(turtle,  coins, sticks), the ways in which the book can help a person reach a better understanding of the inner and the outer world.
