Change7 I Ching
Includes the Richard Wilhelm / Baynes translation with additional comments plus the ancient Chinese text.
The I Ching or Book of Changes is a classic of the Chinese literature that has been used well over two thousands years as a wisdom repository and for divination.
Some relevant features:
The Oracle can be consulted either with the coins or the yarrow-stalk method, using an animated interface.
Oracle answers can be stored in a database. Afterwards they can be searched and analyzed with different tools.
Guidance for interpreting the Oracle answers is provided, so users can know how which are the key points in the situation.
Hexagrams include both the Wilhem-Baynes translation plus a pragmatic interpretation targeted to diary life.
The program is easy to understand, allowing easy navigation between linked hexagrams and the English and Chinese text.
A Chinese text pane, with a literal word by word translation of the Book of Changes, can be opened, side to side to the Wilhelm translation. This feature is very handy or the serious I Ching aficionado, since only in that way one can apprehend the whole range of meanings or the Oracle answers.
Users can add their own words and insights to the text, creating in that way their own version of the I Ching.
