E8, The Na Yin and the Central Palace of Qi Men Dun Jia

Authors: John Frederick Sweeney

The ancient Chinese divination method called Qi Men Dun Jia is mathematically based on the Clifford Clock, which is a ring of Clifford Algebras related through the Bott Periodicity Theorem. On top of this lies the icosahedra or A5 with its sixty or one hundred twenty elements. A5 in the model functions to account for Time, as well as the Five Elements and the Na Jia, additional elements of Chinese metaphysics used in divination. This icosahedra is composed of three Golden Rectangles. The Golden Rectangles are related to three Fano Planes and the octonions, which are in turn related to the Golden Section. This provides the basis for the Lie Algebra and lattice of E8, again with its own Golden Section properties.
