The I Ching also known as the Book of Change has been used by political, business, scientific and philosophic leaders for thousands of years and has influenced medical and scientific advancements that will take the human race will into the 21st century and beyond. I have studied the Taoist philosophy for a number of years and I continue to be intrigued by the concept that energy is all things and all things are energy. Energy can be viewed as vibrations with many different frequencies. The Taoist concept of life being nothing more then the interaction between Yin (negative) and Yang (positive) energy is now a universal scientific fact.
Everything in the visible world and invisible world is vibrating and in constant movement. Scientific research has shown that a concentrated control of the frequency and vibration of an object can move it into a dimension outside of our understanding of space and time. The frequency of the subconscious mind of humans also has the ability to move outside our understanding of space and time. Perhaps this is why consulting the I Ching has been practiced for thousands of years; and why it has served as a source of guidance to some of the most vital questions in the continued evolution of the human race.
Gottfried Von Leibnez, the German mathematician and philosopher was able to confirm his system of binary mathematics which served as the foundation for computer science; after being introduced to the I Ching in 1675. In 1953 Dr. James Watson and Francis Crick announced the discovery of the genetic code consisting of sixty-four binary triplet figures called DNA; that corresponds amazingly with the sixty-four binary triplet hexagrams used when consulting the I Ching. In 1949 Swiss psychologist Carl Jung wrote the foreword in one of the best known Western translations of the I Ching by C.F. Baynes and Richard Wilhelm. Jung theorized that consulting the I Ching allowed the subconscious mind to move past our understanding of space and time.

C. G. Jung first used the term synchronicity in his foreword for the Wilhelm/Baynes book. Synchronicity meaning in short, that there are no coincidences all things have purpose perhaps that is why you are reading this dialog.
