In Zuo Zhuan, there is a phrase as “‘Gen’ to eight” (「〈艮〉之八」). In Guo Yu there are phrases as “‘Tai’ to eight”(「〈泰〉之八」), “the lower trigram of ‘Tun’ (貞〈屯〉) and the upper trigram of ‘Yu’ (悔〈豫〉) are both eight” (皆八). What does “eight” exactly mean? The question has kept troubling the scholars studying Yi Jing and Zuo Zhuan for thousands of years. This essay aims to explore the real meaning of “eight,” dissolve the mystery, and dispel the doubts disturbing scholars. This essay consists of six parts: Introduction, “Gen” to Eight, “Tai” to Eight, The Lower Trigram of “Tun” and the Upper Trigram of “Yu” Are Both Eight, Truth of “to Eight”, and Conclusion.
