Mondo Secter, Ph.D Penetrating the
Dao
This
presentation will introduce students to Secter's innovative unpublished
work on the I Ching over the past 30 years. It will cover the importance
of Evolutionary Hexagrams as a compass for the direction or context
of each hexagram; and the value of Transitional hexagrams for accurately
guiding and explaining change when there is more than one changing
line.
The talk will examine Secter's discovery of the dimensional meaning
of the terms Heaven, Earth, and Human, which notations define the
three trigram lines and six hexagram lines. And he will take a quick
journey through a few of the multidimensional harmonic symmetries
that are embedded in the I Ching sequence, that could be a precursor
or metaphor of the DNA double helix.
Finally Secter will review his powerful trigram symbols, his hexagram
formation cards, and the coin method he devised in 1975, to harmonize
with the probability of change in the older yarrow stalk method
of divination. And if time permits, there will be a quick overview
of the 32 sacred mandalas Secter has elicited from the underlying
hexagram system.
About Mondo Secter,
Ph.D
Mondo Secter is a labelfree multidisciplinary philosopherscholarsculptorcosmologist,
and a leading interpreter, commentator, and decipher of I Ching
cosmological system. His Ph.D. is in Culture and Communication from
Simon Fraser University, Canada's top ranked school; his MA is in
Chinese Religion and Philosophy (honors) from the University of
Hawaii. Secter's book "I Ching Clarified" has been published
in German (1984) and English (1993). It was just republished as
"The I Ching Handbook: DecisionMaking With and Without Divination."
Secter is credited with several insightful I Ching discoveries,
that can be attributed to three decades of internal study without
the diversion of giving courses, seminars, and workshops. His findings
include: mathematical proof of the link between Five Elements and
the I Ching; the Evolutionary and Transitional hexagram theories;
the coding of the hexagram arrangement as a binary symmetry (a 3000
year old enigma); and the symmystery of dividing the hexagram sequence
into Parts 1 and 2. Secter has also found conclusive evidence: of
binary mathematics, prime numbers, and Pi defined in the hexagram
sequence; that the hexagram names and four mantic terms serve as
harmonic intervals; that the sequence is a repeating spiral; and
several more coding modules.
Japan's leading scholar researcher on humancomputer interaction,
writes: "Secter is in the leading edge of inquiry in a field
that is interpreting ekikyo or I Ching as relevant to modern science
and decision or problemsolving processes" Yoshio Hayashi,
Ph.D., M.D, Professor Emeritus, Keio University.
Secter is currently completing four books: 1) Quantum Dao: Unified
Binary Theory"; 2) "Decoding the Dao: The Concealed Symmetry,
Mathematics, and Harmony of the I Ching"; 3) "Strategy,
Ethics, and Power: the Oriental Way of Planning, Decision, and Action";
and 4) "The Architectonics of Culture and Personality: Six
Core Dimensions of Who We Are", an adaptation of his dissertation.
Secter has also written two cookbooks with Ari Tomita, his wife
and a master brush artist from Japan.
