## Contrast Cluster

All the permutations of opposites give different results for these symbols. In the table below, the verbal description emphasizes the internal energetic direction of the symbol; the colour coding shows the values of the different combinations of opposite:

 A: A = o(B) A = e(C) A = o(e(D)) A = ~G A = e(~E)) B: B = o(A) B = e(D) B = o(e(C)) B = ~H B = e(~F)) C: C = o(D) C = e(A) C = o(e(B)) C = ~E C = e(~G)) D: D = o(D) D = e(B) D = o(e(A)) D = ~F D = e(~H)) E: E = o(F) E = e(G) E = o(e(H)) E = ~C E = e(~A)) F: F = o(E) F = e(H) F = o(e(G)) F = ~D F = e(~B)) G: G = o(H) G = e(E) G = o(e(F)) G = ~A G = e(~C)) H: H = o(G) H = e(F) E = o(e(E)) H = ~B H = e(~D))

This set of symbols has the same pattern of algebraic relationships as the Canonical Taiji Contrast Cluster.

The following characterizations of the gua in terms of some of their energetic qualities can be used to reflect back on the contarst relations given in the table above.
