Should we think about systems changes, in a way that we think about weather changes? SJ Marshall (also known as Joel Biroco) wrote on the meaning of Yi in the ZhouYi, which was the earlier basis for the Yi Jing (known to most westerners as the I Ching).

> In the Shang oracle-bone inscriptions this character refers to ‘a yi sacrifice to the sun’, the context suggesting a ritual intended to change overcast conditions and rainy weather, and bring the sun out again. In the inscriptions the character precedes ri, ‘sun’, literally meaning ‘change to sun’ or ‘change to sunny weather’.
