De acordo com a antiga tradição oriental, são "agentes espirituais" que, agindo de maneira misteriosa, fazem com que os pauzinhos do I Ching dêem respostas significativas. Tal poder forma a alma do Livro das Mutações. Se um punhado de fósforos é jogado no chão, eles formam o padrão característico daquele momento. Obviamente não é um procedimento que apele a uma mente crítica moderna acostumada à verificação experimental de fatos ou evidências factuais. A mente chinesa antiga contemplava o cosmos de uma maneira comparável à do físico pós-moderno, cujo modelo do mundo é uma estrutura psíquico-física. Os 64 hexagramas do I Ching são o instrumento pelo qual o significado de 64 situações diferentes, porém típicas, pode ser determinado. Essas interpretações são equivalentes a explicações causais. O critério de validade do observador é sua conclusão de que o texto do hexagrama equivale a uma representação verdadeira de sua condição psíquica. Para quem vê o mundo do ponto de vista da China antiga, o I Ching pode ter alguma atração. Mas é claro que as teorias de Jung dificilmente adentrariam a proverbial mente chinesa. ( )

De Yijing (I-tjing) is een oud Chinees orakelboek opgebouwd rond 64 figuren gevormd door hele en onderbroken strepen, die samen alle mogelijke situaties in hun ontwikkelingstendens representeren. Rond deze zgn. hexagrammen hebben zich van de 10e tot de 4e eeuw v.Chr. talrijke, meestal duistere, commentaren verzameld. Deze uitgave is de ongewijzigde druk van de Nederlandse hervertaling door A. Hochberh-van Wallinga (1953) van de Duitse vertaling door Richard Wilhelm, oorspronkelijk verschenen in 1923. Wilhelm doet in zijn bewerking geen poging de verschillende historische lagen te onderscheiden, maar biedt het werk aan als één bron van wijsheid. Zijn vertaling en zijn uitvoerige toelichting dragen sterk het stempel van zijn tijd, maar zijn indrukwekkende prestatie is nog steeds niet verbeterd. De Nederlandse hervertaling bevat ook een vertaling van het voorwoord door C.C. Jung geschreven voor de Engelse hervertaling (1950).
