Thus we find Chu Hsi concentrating on the inner life of the individual, on the Great Learning's premise that "self-cultivation is the root" of social and political order.(8) Chu's fundamental problematic, the basis of all his intellectual concerns, was the possibility and the difficulty of attaining sagehood by means of self-cultivation.
Chu Hsi's hermeneutical principle that meaning is part of a broader intentionality that also includes practice is the basis for much of his criticism of previous commentators on the I, especially those of the i-li school.

Fabricius fu particolarmente fortunato in quanto, a causa della combinazione delle periodicita', il massimo del 1596 fu uno dei piu' alti: la magnitudine raggiunta fu intorno alla seconda e in questo modo si spiega perche' la ritenne piu' luminosa di alfa Arietis la quale ha magnitudine visuale apparente 2,0.

 Chu Hsi and Divination
In other words, Chu Hsi's commentaries were not intended to develop the specific moral implications and lessons to be learned from the text and applied to the life of the reader.
Chu Hsi refocused attention on the practical use of the I as a manual of divination, reinterpreting this ancient ritual in terms of his theory of mind and incorporating it into his religious-philosophical system.
Chu Hsi's contradictory statements on whether ghosts and spirits were "regular" aspects of the pattern of the way should not obscure the fact that he consistently describes them in terms of the pattern of yin-yang change.

 Chinese Philosophy & Religion: EightTrigrams
Thus we find that these Five Emperors; Fu Hsi (Subduer of Animals), Shen Nung (the Divine Farmer), Huang-Ti (the Yellow Emperor), Shao Hao, and Chuan Hsu, have each been credited with many inventions the I-Ching (as well as inventing hunting, fishing, and trapping) nearly 5,000 years ago.
It is thought that the patterns that typically reappeared when the shell was heated were given meaning, and this practice eventually led to the formation of the trigrams and hexagrams.
While tortoise shell divination could very well have led to the formation the trigrams and explain one of the Fu Hsi myths, I tend to believe that the formation of the trigrams and hexagrams came about through an evolutionary numerological process which started with the concept of yin and yang.

 I Ching PLUS : Cracked the Code -- Traditional Sequence
The Fu Hsi pattern, derived vertically, develops into a left-right sequence of hexagrams at level 6 with an ORDINALITY bias in that each hexagram is the quantitative successor of the previous when 'read' left-right.
Since we are applying the Fu Hsi method of derivation, we apply one of the principles of Fu Hsi, namely that of opposition/complementarity.
Thus the Fu Hsi derivation process works at an intuitive level that is hard to symbolise and can even be blocked by symbolisation; the ordinality in the form of lines in the hexagrams etc acted to hide full expression.
