logical canon of changes I-Ching  

Logical system of mimic motions of a human face.
The first page describes basic concepts of binary logics of the canon of changes I-Ching and logical system of mimic motions, according to which emotions are display in faces of people, that is necessary for understanding of physiognomic images in five online galleries where symbolical images of human emotional expressions are shown.
Galleries have five names: impressions, oracle, relations, conditions, times, that corresponds with various psychological aspects of emotional expressions or displays of a human face.

Information of this web-page can be interesting not only to experts on physiognomy or face-reading, or psychoanalysts who investigate emotional expressions of human faces, but also for mathematicians and programmers who correlate artificial intellect of virtual characters in computer games to emotions of people.

Basic concepts of the canon of changes I-Ching.
Binary system of hexagrams and emotions of a human face.

Facial emotions are mimic expressions of mental processes which are shown in human faces and which show attitude of a person to world around.
If to allocate basic physiognomic features or otherwise to tell emotional traits or lineaments of a human face then facial expressions or mimic motions can be considered as strict logical system which corresponds with digital binary code of 64 hexagrams of the ancient Chinese canon of changes I-Ching, or original and universal system of mathematical symbols according to which it is possible to systematize various phenomena of world around and aspects of a human life, and including it is possible to systematize emotions from view points of philosophy and psychology of personality.

logical system of mimic motions of a human face in the table

Logical system of mimic motions of a human face in the table.

Fundamental logic basis of the Chinese canon of changes I-Ching is the digital binary code which has representation by means of entire and break lines in hexagrams, that is possible to see in first table.
Mathematicians in computer cybernetics designate binary code with digits or figures 0 and 1. But mathematical binary code corresponds with digits 6 and 9 in the Chinese numerology, and consequently entire and break lines in hexagrams I-Ching have values which are similar to numerological numbers. Namely numerical six and nine in the Chinese numerology mean philosophical principles of Yin and Yang.
And also numerical or numerological values of lines according to concepts of the Chinese canon of changes I-Ching correspond with six positions in hexagrams.
In total six vertical positions and every possible combinations of two types of entire and break lines form 64 hexagrams I-Ching.
Namely two types of lines have spatial arrangements or locations in six vertical positions, and are combined in every possible combinations, that makes 64 hexagrams of the canon I-Ching.
Everyone hexagram in the table is connection of top and bottom trigrams on vertical and horizontal rows. Namely three top and three bottom lines in hexagrams or otherwise to tell top and bottom trigrams correspond with verticals and horizontals of the shown table.
64 hexagrams or Kwa in the Chinese classical Book of Changes I-Ching or I-Jing  have symbolical names and semantic meanings, or otherwise to tell figurative interpretations of philosophical senses which correspond with diverse phenomena of global world validity and correspond with positions of entire and break lines, or digits 6 and 9 in the Chinese numerology. Namely two types of lines on six positions in hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes I-Ching symbolize modifications of global phenomena of world around and spheres of universe.
It is possible to speak that constructive design of all objects existing in the world correspond with positional system of lines and structural logic of hexagrams in the canon of changes I-Ching from view points of Chinese philosophy and numerology.
Physiognomic structure and constructive shapes or lineaments of a human face too can be correlated with positional system of lines and structural logic of hexagrams in the canon of changes I-Ching. Because facial features are similar to spheres of universe and any other objects of global world validity. Namely faces of people possesse visible shapes which can be realized by means of binary system of logical symbols of the canon I-Ching.
In essence emotional expressions of mimic motions of a human face can be described by means of the Chinese canon of changes, and numerological values or philosophical meanings of six lines in hexagrams can be correlated to facial features.
Two bottom first and second positions in hexagrams show a mouth.
Two middle third and fourth positions mean eyes.
Two top fifth and sixth positions designate eyebrows.
These are basic facial features or physiognomic shapes according to which human emotions can be expressed.
Namely emotions of a mouth correspond with combinations of two lines on bottom positions.
Emotions of eyes correspond to combinations of two lines on middle positions.
Emotions of eyebrows are connected with combinations of two lines on top positions.
In total there are four logic combinations of two lines or otherwise to tell four types of digrams to which there correspond numbers 6, 7, 8, 9 in the context of Chinese numerology, and also there correspond physiognomic variants of facial emotional expressions.
Number six - open emotions.
Number seven - joyful emotions.
Number eight - sad emotions.
Number nine - quiet emotions.
Four types of digrams form 64 hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes I-Ching and correspond with logical system of mimic motions of a human face, and in essence allow to systematize 64 physiognomic symbols which designate most typical displays of facial features and form symbolical gradation of basic human emotions.
Symbolical images or physiognomic symbols (physiognomies) of basic human emotions or emotional expressions of a face are shown in the second table.
And also the table shows serial numbers of corresponding hexagrams I-Ching. Namely each physiognomic image is in the table on crossing of two trigrams which form corresponding hexagram.

Namely conceptual idea of the offered physiognomy or face-reading consists that emotional modifications of basic facial features or lineaments as mimic parameters of emotions are compared to positions of lines in hexagrams of the canon of changes I-Ching.

It is necessary to tell that the offered logic system of mimic motions, and also mathematical method of ordering or gradation of human emotions by means of 64 hexagrams differs from scientific concepts of modern academic psychology according to which grading attributes or characteristics of emotional processes are words which designate sensual phenomena and psychological conditions of human personality.
In particular in the academic psychology following emotional processes or moods are known.
Emotional processes or moods.
Affection Anger Angst Anguish Annoyance Anxiety Apathy Arousal Awe Boredom Confidence Contempt Contentment Courage Curiosity Depression Desire Despair Disappointment Disgust Distrust Dread Embarrassment Envy Excitement Fear Frustration Gratitude Grief Guilt Happiness Hatred Hope Hostility Hurt Hysteria Indifference Interest Jealousy Joy Loathing Loneliness Love Lust Outrage Passion Pity Pleasure Pride Rage Regret Relief Remorse Sadness Satisfaction Self-confidence Shame Shock Shyness Sorrow Suffering Surprise Terror Trust Wonder Worry Zeal Zest.
Affects.
Feature of affects is greater excessive intensity and rough external expression of emotional processes or moods.
Fright Panic Horror Euphoria Ecstasy Fury.
And also this list can specify other emotional processes or moods which correspond to words, or otherwise to linguistic designations of emotions.
In essence in the academic psychology there is no concrete gradation of emotions, and also there are no certain visual comparisons of various emotional processes to physiognomic changes which can be seen in mimic motions of human faces. But linguistic designations of human emotions by means of words can be correlated with 64 hexagrams of the canon of changes I-Ching and physiognomic symbols of the shown logic system of facial features or lineaments, namely to symbolical images (physiognomies) in the table which can be considered as universal classification or gradation chart.

Following page describes detail ratio of physiognomic images and logical system of emotional mimic expressions of a human face with hexagrams of the canon of changes and numbers of Chinese philosophy and numerology.
