The novel section is screaming for some attention. All other sections are active, but my section seems to get abandonned for some reason.

No it hasn’t, I am just focusing on the redesign.
Sun Jian is going live today, but aside from him there isn’t any new content for the time being. I plan to put Lü Bu’s SGZ together as well. All the bits are there now, aside from a few footnotes, so why not post what we have?

There's more stuff that can be put up, you have just forgotten them. I'll send it to you again.

That is probably best. Forgive my horrible memory.
Mountains of stuff probably grow old and die in the mound of text I call my inbox. :(

Chapter 14, I think. And I also wanted to ask you, what is your exact source?

It's a revised translation of the I Ching translated by James Legge...
im not sure when he wrote it but i found his lifespan to be between 1815-1897 so it should be public domain... even if he finished it on his deathbed... my version was revised in 1996 by Random House

They were having a booksale by the military base under a tent... and just reading Rotk in the car on the way there i remembered a passage about the I ching... lo and behold its there... i beg my parents to buy it and i got it... i never would have thought to find anything of interest at a fundraising booksale...

I don't think KMA should be affiliated with any Chinese religion or philosophy...

So DianWei, are you going to post sections of the I Ching on KMA? That'd be great, especially since there are always people wanting to know about Taoism, whether 3K figures are Taoists, where the 8-Trigram stuff came from etc.

I don't think this will be a problem. As I have suggested in some threads before, the I Ching is just an ancient text predating any of the Chinese religions/philosophies that we can see today. It is no more "religious" than the Guan Yu stories in SGYY... if people want to draw a religious link from them then that's their choice. :D
