The Chinese Medicine Clock

The Chinese Medicine Clock

In the classical chinese worldview, the human body was viewed in a holistic unity with Heaven, Tian, and Earth, Di. As the seasons ruled over a year, so too does a microcosm of the seasons rule over a single day, and each passing moment. The Five Elements are always in operation from greatest to most minute. They divided the 24 hours in a day among the 12 officials. Each one being a minister with a different task in the Empire. The Heart holding the imperial office itself. The Xin, which was the house of the Shen or Spirit. The mandate from heaven coming down in that person. Observing these cycles syncs up the ministers with the Dao, and balances Yin and Yang. These observations are not a requirement or guaranteed fact, but a system which can be followed for organization.
