Influence by Joseph Charroy
The starting point of this book is the hexagram 31 of the Yi-King (the book of transformations).
Yi-King occupies a fundamental place in the history of Chinese thought and can be considered as a unique treatise whose purpose is to describe the states of the world and their evolution.
Hexagram 31 is translated by emotion or influence and means to attract, call, invite.
Emotion is an instant.
It describes the triggering of the disorder: something erupts suddenly, calls us quickly, we are affected before we can intervene. The moment forces one to go out of oneself to participate in what is going on, a stimulus flows at the speed of lightning and spreads across the face, the back, the hand.
