The Book of Changes holds that all functions of the Universe come from Nature. Hence, as an element of Nature, mankind should, without exception, also mold its acts and thoughts to the spirit of Nature.
As far as methodology is concerned, the Book of Changes is a logical system using Gougu (Pythagorean) Theorem as the pivot, and using time and space to unify all things in the Universe in terms of their function (instead of their physical structure).
In the Book of Changes the ancient Chinese used the River Map and Luo Writing to record the natural pedigree of function, constituting a general grasp of time and space of the Universe, and forming the "simplest form of macro and micro power models" as described in the language of mathematics. It has formed its own system of logic, and built up a system of explanation and deduction for the whole of traditional Chinese culture.
The great charm of the Book of Changes lies in the fact that, by using the "axiomatized" method, that is, starting from the earliest primitive concepts and a few self-evident axioms and postulates, and using deductive reasoning, it has worked out all the inherent theorems of mankind under the guidance of the world outlook of "Heaven and Man As One, " and crafted them into a self -contained system of logic.
