I learned about this method on Clarity (a well known site with lots of information and very good community forums) which reports it to be described in the book "I Ching Made Easy" by Rod & Amy Sorrell. In line with the book's title, this is an easy way to cast an hexagram and proceeds as follows:
ProbabilitesThis method always produces exactly one changing line meaning that there are only 276 possible responses (out of the 4096 that are theoretically possible).The probabilities for each lines are:
Prob(6) = Prob(9) = ^{1}/_{6} * ^{1}/_{2} = 8.33%
Prob(8) = Prob(7) = ^{5}/_{6} * ^{1}/_{2} = 41.67% Prob(yin) = Prob(yang) = ^{1}/_{2} VariationsInstead of using a different coin for getting a moving line, you can throw the coins six times generating 6 hexagrams from which you can derive 6 line using the process described for the I Ching Book method.--- I received a good suggestion from Tsukiko for another variation:
Prob(6) = Prob(9) = Prob(8) = Prob(7) = ^{1}/_{2} * ^{1}/_{2} = ^{1}/_{4 }
:Prob(yin) = Prob(yang) = ^{1}/_{2 } |
