  1. Bad enough we get astrology in Astronomy and Space, and now i’ching.

    i’ching is a Chinese fortune-telling device, where a random number from 1 to 64 is chosen (traditionally by casting sticks, although any random binary process for choosing numbers from 1 to 2^6 can be used), and then the i’ching book, which has 64 pages, is opened to that page and read. Since the contents of the page are deliberately poetic and enigmatic, and loaded with psychological symbols, the need to impress meaning upon the randomly-chosen text may cause you to think in a creative way about your life situation.
