Extreme –Change –Continuity
When things reach their extreme, change occurs, after the change they evolve smoothly, and thus they continue for a long time. This notion comes from The Book of Changes and is a way of understanding the principles of change. According to this text, things are constantly changing and will, when they reach their extreme, develop in the opposite direction. People ought to understand the way of change as revealed in The Book of Changes, look for the turning point when things reach their extreme, and facilitate change so as to effect their smooth and long-lasting development.
The Book of Changes reveals that when things reach their extreme, change occurs. After the change they evolve smoothly, and thus they continue for a long time. That’s how “Heaven bestows help to the human world and benefits all.” (The Book of Changes)
