Pairing the Extraordinary Vessels with the Primary Channels and Zangfu - Part Two

Pairing the Extraordinary Vessels with the Primary Channels and Zangfu - Part Two
Special Offer
CMT 2012

by Thomas Richardson

Introduction

In the last issue of Chinese Medicine Times, I introduced a perspective that pairs the extraordinary vessels with the primary channels and zangfu in a one-to-one correspondence. In that article, I examined the relationship between the first three paired primary channels and zangfu of the horary clock (Lung-Large Intestine; Stomach-Spleen; Heart-Small Intestine, corresponding to the time period from 3am-3pm) to the three extraordinary vessels that form the quiescent state (ren mai-chong mai-du mai), as well as the relationship of both systems to the vertical axis (the connection between Heaven, Earth, and Humanity). In this article I will continue this exploration, turning now to examine the three pairs of primary channels and zangfu that correspond to the second half of the horary clock (Bladder-Kidneys; Pericardium-San Jiao; Gall Bladder-Liver, corresponding to the time period from 3pm-3am) and their relationship to the remaining extraordinary vessels: qiao, wei, and dai mai, respectively. After examining the correspondences between them, we will look at the relationship of both systems to the processes of the horizontal axis and transcendence.
