The Book of Changes, also known as the I Ching or Zhouyi, was born in China during the Bronze Age. It has been compiled and developed by many scholars over generations, covering knowledge in divination, astronomy, calendrics, and other fields, and was considered a compulsory subject for ancient Chinese government officials’ selection exams. From a classical philosophical perspective, it explains the laws of the universe’s operation through the theory of Yin and Yang. The inventor of binary, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, believed that there was a significant similarity between the logical symbols in the Book of Changes and his binary number system. This book will be based on Leibniz’s perspective, using a graphical visual language to explain the mathematical and classical philosophical principles in the Book of Changes by analyzing the binary structure, and elucidating the relationship between the concepts of Yin and Yang and algorithms from a modern perspective.
