This hexagram is one of eight that are 'pure', in that their trichotomous form contains no BOTH/AND states other than the 'Tao' position (base line):
_______ _______ _______ __ _ __ T27
With this in mind it is notable that this form cannot share space with any other and thus for joint context situations some form of change is required.
At all times, the path into hexagram 01 is that of 43 - resolutness,seeding, spread-out. What this implies is that the change of any hexagram into 01 is forced to go through the characteristics of 43
At all times the path out of hexagram 01 is the opposite of the path in - in this case the path described by 23 - pruning, cutting-back. Thus the process of hexagram 01 changing into any other hexagram has to pass through hexagram 23 to start.
Hexagram 01 finds it's roots in hexagram 28, Exceeding, with the emphasis on there being too much yang present in the hexagram.
As we progress towards the refined point at the top of the hexagram, so we pass through ever-improving states, the description of which is given by the order of contextual hexagrams. The final contextual state, prior to text and context becoming 'one', is described by the line 5 influence - hexagram 34, inspiring.
For hexagram 01, the contextual hexagrams sequence from the base line through to the top is:
At a finer level of analysis, the contextual hexagrams encapsulate the behaviour of a hexagram pair - where one is connected to the unchanging line and the other to the line when it changes.These pairs are shown below, with The layout format described here
