Yeah, something like that. The Yi Jing influenced pretty much all aspects of classic Chinese thought, religion, philosophy, ritual, etc. Likewise the other five classics, on poetry, etiquette, etc.gregkavarnos wrote:Okay, I understand now!

These basically pre-date notions of Ru (Confucianism), Dao or Lao Zhuang (Daoism), etc.
