    Hi Harmen. First thanks for the video: excellent. I just want to say that when it comes to the expression “Crossing the Great River” I do mainly think on hexagram 63 and 64 and also the strange thing that what one could expect namely hex. 63 to be ‘not yet across’ and hex. 64 to be ‘allready across’ it’s the other way round in the king Wen sequence.

    Congratulations on an interesting inquiry!
    Thank you for your thorough research, Harmen.

    I was interested to see “yin and yang(the north and south sides of the/a river)” show up on a bronze inscription. What is the direct translation there?
