I Ching in Human Digits

Dry bones in five digits.


Throwing the bones in bone divination practiced by Africans, Portuguese, Greeks, Romans and other people, is a type of computing similar to pyromancy practiced in ancient China. Ox scapula and turtle shells used for bone reading by the Chinese are called oracle bones. 

I Ching hexagram is human digits. Using yarrow sticks, coins and dice to download data from the Yi Jing hexagrams is an act of palmistry (palm reading).

Normally, humans have twenty digits. Each hand or foot has five digits, such that the two hands have ten digits and the feet have ten digits. The feet and the hands are two trigrams intersecting to form a hexagram.

Each trigram is a Tetractys comprised of ten dots. In the feet, the ten toes are the ten dots. In the hands, the ten fingers are the ten dots. In Kabbalah, the ten dots are called ten sefirot.

Toes and fingers are called digits because the ten dots are the ten decimals: 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. The sum of the ten decimals is 45 (axis mundi).

When the ten toes are the ten decimals, the ten fingers are the following ten binary numbers: 0000, 0001, 0010, 0011, 0100, 0101, 0110, 0111, 1000 and 1001. When the ten fingers are the ten decimals, the ten toes are the ten binary numbers.

The toes and fingers are two intersecting equilateral triangles. The first equilateral triangle is a Tetractys numbered in binary numbers, the second Tetractys is an equilateral triangle numbered in decimal numbers, and the hexagram is the point of equilibrium or balance between decimal numbers and binary numbers. 

The ten decimals are the ten tribes of the kingdom of Israel, and the two digits in binary numbers are the two tribes of the kingdom of Judah. I Ching hexagram where the two equilateral triangles meet is the twelve tribes of Israel or the United Monarchy.

I Ching hexagram is a six-pointed star called the star of David. The six points are A, B, C, D, E and F of a hexadecimal called Ifa. Where the ten dots are decimal numbers, the six letters are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. When they are binary numbers, the six letters are 1010, 1011, 1100, 1101, 1110 and 1111. 

I Ching hexagram is Ifa in which the ten digits and the six letters are the sixteen principal Odu. Ifa is a Yoruba term for Israel, and Yi Jing or I Ching is a Chinese term for Israel. 

Israel is the oracle. And the oracle bones are the bones of the people of Israel. 

“Mortal man, the people of Israel are like these bones. They say that they are dried up, without any hope and with no future." (Ezekiel 37:11)
