I CHING is a SACRED BOOK. It gives surprises in each one of the times at which it is consulted. For example, now, at the end of the 20th century, the concept of "perspective" has been renewed; fortunately, it begins to become a habit to reflect from manifold perspectives, it is part of the intellectual workings to consider the things from the greater possible number of sides, against the authoritarianisms (often cultivated and promulgated from the universities) that only pay attention to a single cautious one. More than a divinatory exercise, to open the I Ching today is equivalent to listening to another point of view, and not any other point of view. The readers who already have made this exercise will understand the ineffable experience on this point of view.
