On the theory of change of Zhou Yi Can Tong Qi

本文尝试从汉易学所主张的"易一名而含三义"义理出发，来考察《周易参同契》所蕴含的易学思想。从"易简"之义看，《参同契》突出了乾坤二卦法象着宇宙天地的生成变化法则及乾坤体性表现为"自然"而无人为的情态。从"变易"之义看，《参同契》主要是借鉴汉易学的"纳甲说"和"十二消息卦说"，来探讨天地判分之后阴阳之气的变通迭更过程，进而法象修仙之秩序或步骤，以及所应注意的火候进退或身体气息变化等。从"不易"之义看，《参同契》以乾坤二卦为体，坎离二卦为用，来比拟宇宙的张设布列之结构及相应变化过程。《参同契》已将《周易》之义理创造性地运用于炼丹的实践当中。Departing from the saying " Yi possesses three meanings (simplicity, changing, unchanging)" maintained by Zhou Yi Can Tong Qi , the author examined the philosophical connotations contained in it. As for "simplicity" was concerned, the book emphasized that the two diagrams of Qian and Kun symbolize the cosmos's generating & changing principle, in addition, Qian and Kun manifest a "natural" but not man made state. As for "changing", mainly adopting Na jia theory (a theory in which the celestial stems are arranged into the hexagrams by certain rules) and the "changing theory of the 12 months" (a theory utilizing 12 hexagrams to correspond to the 12 months) of the Han Dynasty, the book discussed the changing process of Qi of Yin & Yang , to symbolize the order and procedure in meditation and changes of breaths. As for "unchanging", Can Tong Qi utilizes the four diagrams of Qian, Kun, Kan and Li to symbolize the structure and changing process of the cosmos. Zhou Yi Can Tong Qi has merged the connotations of Zhouyi into the cinnabar refining practice creatively.
