A Balance of Elements: I Ching (Yi Jing) and Pyramid
Immanuel Kant found four basic contradictory statements:
There is an idealistic being, a necessary being, a Platonic reality (a
notion characteristic of the classical, the idealistic temper) or there
is none (characteristic of the pragmatic, vulgar, expressionist
temper). (Wind Trigram, Air Primary to Thunder Trigram and Dust
Anti-Primary).

There is a simple mind, soul monad of phenomenological
primitiveness (a notion characteristic of the impressionistic and
manneristic tempers) or there is none (a notion of the nationalistic,
symbolistic, post-impressionistic temper where the self merges in
the complex whole). (Mountain Trigram, Salt Anti- Primary to Lake
Trigram, Water Primary)

There is freedom (a notion characteristic of the cubist and
existentialist tempers) or there is none (a notion of the rationalistic,
mechanistic, indeterminate, Baroque tempers). (Flame Trigram, Fire
Primary, to Waterpit Trigram, Pottery Anti- Primary)

There is no beginning or end (a romantic notion) or all things are
finite (a realistic notion). (Heaven Trigram, Heaven Anti- Primary, to
Earth Trigram, Earth Primary).

Each trigram is one of the eight basic trigrams of the hexigrams of
the I Ching (Chinese Classical Book of Wisdom), one of the eight
sides of a buried octahedron that emerges from the ground of being
as a great pyramid.

THE EIGHT TRIGRAMS  AND EIGHT SIDES OF THE BURIED
OCTAHEDRON PYRAMID OF ALL THINGS:

wind salt mountain is the true apex of the pyramid,
this is also the top long yang line of the mountain

Above is the flattened octahedron of mixed forms.  Technology
is the short yin middle line of the Flame, Earth, Mountain, and
Thunder trigrams and Religion is the long yang middle line of
the Water Pit, Wind, Heaven, and Lake trigrams.  Opera is the
long yang bottom line of the Heaven, Flame, Thunder, and Lake
trigrams and Scholarship is the short yin bottom lines of the
Mountain, Wind, Water Pit, and Earth trigrams.  Phenomenology
is the long yang top line of the Flame, Mountain, Wind, and
Heaven trigrams and Education is the short yin top line of the
Lake, Water Pit, Earth, and Thunder trigrams.

Business is the Thunder Trigram, Science is the Earth Trigram,
Mathematics is the Mountain Trigram and Design is the Flame
Trigram.  Metaphysics is the Wind Trigram opposite of Thunder,
and Magic is the Heaven Trigram opposite of Earth, Government
is the Water Pit opposite of Flame, and Literature is the Lake
Trigram opposite of Mountain.  Each trigram is the corner of a
grand cube, face of a grand octahedron, and each trigram line is
the face of a grand cube, corner-vertex of a grand octahedron.
