From the Paper:

"I Ching is a form of divination used in China for the prediction of many affairs, both personal and affairs of the state. "I" or yi means change. "Ching" or ying means book. Therefore it is known in English as the Book of Changes. It is based on the philosophy that everything in the universe is constantly changing. The I Ching reflects this process of changes and gives a way to interpret the way that energy is flowing at any particular moment."
