By accepting Blackfoot culture on its own terms throughimmersion rather than subjective [Plato’s ‘objectified’]anthropological notions, here is what I’d been able tosolve applying Native American principles of math tosolve an ages old mystery: this (formerly) lost Chinesesystem reconstructed more than 30 years ago using the based 8 math of the Native American oracle called Stick Game. The text of the Wilhelm-Baynes I Chingtranslation is organized around this system asdemonstrated in the resulting relationships of thehexagrams and consistent text references. It is mosteasily explained using the coins rather than sticks, whichis less familiar to people. The mathematical principlesare identical to Native American.Using three tossed coins (like dice) these are the possiblelines:Masculine/old is --o-- three heads (a so-called‘changing line)Masculine/young is ----- two heads and a tail.Feminine/young is -- -- two tails and a headFeminine/old is --x-- three tails (a so-called‘changing line)Draw a + symbol large enough to build four hexagrams,one in each quadrant. Using the space in the upper leftquadrant of the + symbol, you build your initialhexagram from bottom, up. Follows is an example of thevalues if you assign masculine to heads:line 6 ----- 2 heads, one tail
line 5 ----- 2 heads, one tailline 4 --o-- 3 headsline 3 --x-- 3 tailsline 2 ----- 2 heads, one tailline 1 ----- 2 heads, one tailthe lines movement is -> and becomes its opposite atright
----- -- ------- -- -- young--o-- (a solid line) --x-- old--x-- (broken line) --o-- old----- -- -- young----- -- -- 
The hexagrams recording now differs to fill the + symbolfrom above to below
-- -- ------- -- -------o-- --x----x-- --o---- -- ------- -- -----
The difference in recording above to below is followingthe I Ching maxim “Change, that is unchanging” (also astick game axiom), while reversing the order, you do notreverse the ‘old’ or ‘changing’ lines when recording thelower hexagrams.The top right and both bottom hexagrams are built fromthe top left hexagram, that is to say building onehexagram actually built four hexagrams.Using this system to build the hexagrams, together withthe Wilhelm/Baynes I Ching translation, will produceconsistent numerological inter-relationships between thehexagrams and consistent references between thehexagrams in the text, as organized by the ancients. The bottom hexagrams are the primary “hidden hexagrams”of the I Ching.The presently popular and wide spread I Ching hexagram building system (given in Wilhelm/Baynes) can beapplied as a math check for this system, one only need toapply it to the bottom right hexagram to arrive at the topleft hexagram (with movement exhausted) and as wellemploy it to arrive at the secondary ‘hidden hexagrams’for all four of the primary hexagrams.If you did not ‘draw’ (a word going to the original use of sticks rather than the coins) 3 of a kind when tossing thecoins, it indicates the idea of ‘stasis’ or no movement.The principle of infinity with this system can be lookedat as rolling a wheel on a plane. If you were to mark 64degrees on a wheel and ‘roll’ it so to speak, unlike acomputer analyzing Chess, you cannot exhaust the
