The Tao of Chaos

Don’t get me wrong — I think that a correlation of the I Ching with the genetic code is a vital step in expanding our search for illuminating metaphors. And Walter has certainly made a valiant effort. Yet I couldn’t help being somewhat distracted by the author’s style. Her real agenda seems to be selling us on the integration of Eastern and Western worldviews — an admirable aspiration, to be sure, but how many times do we need to hear breathless rhapsodies about “paired period 3 windows creating co-chaos!”? She makes her point, and then keeps making it, over and over, caught up in her own capacity for language, overeager to convey the awesome pattern she senses around her. Maybe it’s just my Western linear worldview, but I would have preferred higher signal-to-noise ratio here. Sorry. [Element]
