This is what I found after a looong search: Pierre is Chinese and high to Dharmas hierarchy so i searched Chinese symbolism and here it comes:There is a symbolism called trigrams and hexagrams which in few words is: Trigrams: The Baqua is a circular arrangement of the trigrams, traditionally printed on a mirror, or disk. According to legend, Fu Hsi found the bā gùa on the scales of a tortoise’s back. They function rather like a magic square, with the four axes summing to the same value (e.g., using 0 and 1 to represent yin and yang, 000 + 111 = 111, 101 + 010 = 111, etc.).The solid line represents yang, the creative principle. The open line represents yin, the receptive principle. These principles are also represented in a common circular symbol known as taijitu but more commonly known in the west as the yin-yang diagram, expressing the idea of complementarity of changes: when Yang is at top, Yin is increasing, and the reverse.
We all know that there is a good-bad, god-evil, yin-yang thing going on in the series. Let’s check out the 8 trigrams
And lets see the Dharma’s symbol
I KNOW…from top and to the right fire,earth,wind,heaven,water,thunder,mountain,lake.Ah the guards on the sub wore uniforms with the symbol water (that makes sense).
and now lets look the hexagrams:
The text of the I Ching is a set of oracular statements represented by a set of 64 abstract line arrangements called hexagrams. Each hexagram is a figure composed of six stacked horizontal lines, where each line is either Yang (an unbroken, or solid line), or Yin (broken, an open line with a gap in the center). With six such lines stacked from bottom to top there are 26 or 64 possible combinations, and thus 64 hexagrams represented.
The first three lines of the hexagram, called the lower trigram, are seen as the inner aspect of the change that is occurring. The upper trigram (the last three lines of the hexagram), is the outer aspect. The change described is thus the dynamic of the inner (personal) aspect relating to the outer (external) situation. Thus, hexagram 04
