SiXiang

Four phase (four hexagrams) described as
four living creatuires.

'Si Xiang' is the four living creatures (four phases) described in Revelation 4:6-8. The four living creatures are four hexagrams, and since a hexagram is a six-pointed star, the six wings of each living creature are the six points of a six-pointed star.


New International Version of the Holy Bible described the four living creatures as follows:
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. (Revelation 4:6) "NIV"
King James Version of the Holy Bible refers to the living creatures as four animals.
In the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. (Revelation 4:6) "KJV"
Beast: animal
Four beasts: four animals

The four animals are symbolized by four hexagrams, and six (the first three letters of the word 'Si Xiang') implies the six wings of each of the four living creatures or four animals.
And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him (Revelation 4:8) "KJV"
Four beasts: four symbols
Four symbols: four hexagrams
Six wings: six points of the six-pointed star or the hexagram

The four animals are described as follows:
And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.       (Revelation 4:7) "KJV"

Bagua is made up of two squares, and each square is divided into four triangles. Since a square is made up of four triangles, the two squares constituting the Bagua are equal to eight triangles.
Mathematically,

Bagua = Square + Square
           = 2 Squares

A Square = 4 Triangles

Therefore,

Bagua = 2(4 Triangles)
           = 8 Triangles

Each triangle is a trigram such that the eight triangles are eight trigrams. The three sides of the triangle (the trigram) are the following three persons of the Blessed Trinity:
  1. Father
  2. Son
  3. Holy Spirit
Jesus says,
Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19) "GNT"
Recall that the Holy Spirit (the third person) is the Tao, and the Tao is the sum of the Father and the Son, the trigram is equal to the first two persons of the Blessed Trinity. Each person is a line so that a trigram is two lines and the eight trigrams are 16 (2 × 8) lines.

Four-dimensional Space

In harmony, 4-D space (four-dimensional space) is a tesseract comprised of an outer large cube representing 3-D space and a small invisible inner cube representing the fourth dimension.

The two cubes are space and time, such that the tesseract is spacetime.

Spacetime implies equilibrium between space and time.

A cube is made up of the following three equal sides:

1. Length (l)
2. Breadth (b)
3. Height (h)

The three sides are three dimensions of space such that the cube represents three-dimensional space.

Time (the fourth dimension) has the following three sides:

1. Hour
2. Minute
3. Second

Time is the reflection of space, which means that time is a cube in another dimension.

Since length is l, breadth is b and height is h, hour is l', minute is b' and second is h'. l', b' and h' are reflections of l, b and h respectively, such that time is the image of space.

There is a mirror between time and space. When a cube is placed in front of a mirror, the image in the…

Yinyang in the Holy Bible

Yinyang is the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire described in Exodus 13:21-22. The pillar of cloud is darkness (Yin), the pillar of fire is light (Yang), such that the two pillars are Yinyang.

"During the day the LORD went in front of them in a pillar of cloud to show them the way, and during the night he went in front of them in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel night and day. The pillar of cloud was always in front of the people during the day, and the pillar of fire at night." (Exodus 13:21-22)

Note that Yinyang is not 'Yin Yang'. Yinyang implies unity or reconciliation and 'Yin Yang' means division or conflict.

The Israelites left Egypt as a united people, which implies that their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land was governed by the force of Yinyang (not Yin Yang).

Yinyang is only one word. Yin Yang are two words.

Yinyang = 1 (unity or neutrality)

Yin Yang = 2 (division or polarity)

Circumscribed Circle

In geometry, a circumscribed circle (also circumcircle) of a polygon is a circle enclosing a cyclic polygon such that the circumference of the circle passes through all the vertices of the polygon.

All triangles and all regular simple polygons are cyclic polygons, which means that equilateral triangle, regular cyclic quadrilateral, regular pentagon, regular hexagon and regular octagon are cyclic polygons.

Recall that an octet is a regular octagon comprised of regular hexagons and equilateral triangles. Since these three geometric shapes are cyclic polygons, an octet is a circle comprised of circles.

In logical reasoning, the intersection between two equilateral triangles is a conjunction between two circles or two rings. Two circumscribed equilateral triangles are merged to form a circumscribed regular hexagon, and eight circumscribed regular hexagons are fused to form a circumscribed regular octagon.

Since the three geometric shapes are circumscribed polygons, each one can be substi…
