To recap, the two First Powers interact to produce the Four Symbols. The Four Symbols intermingle with the two First Powers again to produce the eight diagrams, or

Observe that the

*Ba Gua*.arbitrary Ba Gua |

*Ba Gua*effectively combine to produce an octo-partitioned space in three dimensions. The binary metric space allows for two values per dimension. One of the*Ba Gua*is depicted here, with each of its corner given as a triplet of binary digits.Three binary axes combine to yield 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 partitions in the metric space we've defined. Each of the eight partitions may then be visualized as a cube. The eight partitions also can represent the Ba Gua as eight cubes.

Eight Ba Gua comprise an hypercube, |

These 8 cubes come together at a common vertex (ORIGIN) to form a composite cube of a higher order, or hypercube. Each of the eight Ba Gua cubes contributes one distinct corner to the higher-order composite cube. A vector (path) drawn from the ORIGIN to each of the 8 corners of the hypercube defines direction in space and the bounds of the space. If all eight paths measure equally, a spherical space results.
