I-Ching is the earliest Chinese Classical Philosophy, as early as B.C. 213. According to the Chinese legend, FuYi the founder of BaGua (8 trigrams) saw a flying horse flying out from the yellow river with symbols and formation images on its back. And that was how these symbols and formation images inspired FuYi to develop the BaGua (8 trigrams).
It was later, during captive, Zhou Wen King redevelop FuYi’s Bagua (8 trigrams) and further permutate the BaGua (8 trigrams) into 64 hexagrams.
During Qing Shi King, many important classics were burnt, except I-Ching because I-Ching was used as a medical book. Later on, Confucius spread the teaching of I-Ching to his disciples and to all of us.
