      As general secretary xi pointed out, traditional Chinese medicine is the treasure of ancient Chinese science and the key to open the treasure-house of Chinese civilization.

      As the core of TCM theory, "five or six gas" is a study of the periodicity of natural change and its impact on human health and disease. Its theoretical source is deeply rooted in Chinese traditional culture, which reflects the ancient Chinese understanding of the laws of the natural universe. Understand the key, help us from a deeper understanding of the spiritual connotation of Chinese civilization, and prevent some will "five six air transport" simplification, mechanization, absolute, the tendency of mystification.

      The author profile gu zhi shan, professor of anhui university of traditional Chinese medicine, the group leader of the five six gas research experts of Chinese traditional Chinese medicine, and the representative of dragon sand medical school. Over the years, he has devoted himself to the study of the five - six gas theory, which has been used as a theoretical guide, as well as the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, to carry forward Chinese traditional culture.

      In the process of human and disease struggle, ancient Chinese medicine has accumulated rich experience in preventing and treating diseases, and its core theory is five - six gas. It needs to be emphasized that the five - six gas is not a branch of TCM theory, but the basis of the concept of TCM, such as five Tibetan six, three Yin, six meridian and twelve meridians.

      The source of the five - six gas is neither mysterious nor complicated

What is "six gas"? Generally speaking, six qi refers to the climate change of wind, fire, heat, wet, dry and cold. In fact, the climate is just one aspect of six gas contact, six gas is the sun cold water, less Yang, Yang Ming dry gold, fire too damp soil, less Yin jun and jue evil wind wood, from the dynamic change of tai chi Yin and Yang.

      Present, people all know that, but many people just put the taiji diagram model as philosophy, did not know taiji diagram is the periodic change of science pattern, the universe all sorts of cyclical change, such as day and night from the sundial shadow length and gradient can be naturally formed taiji diagram. The taiji diagram is dynamic, indicating that the Yin and Yang qi of nature is the rhythmic movement with the changing of the ups and downs. Yin and Yang represent the two elephants of the gasification movement: from decaying to sheng is Yang elephant, from sheng to senile.

      The ancients interpreted the changes of the rise and fall of heaven and earth as a kind of "opening and closing" movement, also called "separation", "war", "closing" and so on. A little sleep, a whole life. Between the opening and the closing of the "pivot", dynamic tai chi has the "opening, closing, armature" three states. "The theory of yin-yang and the theory of Yin and Yang," in the yellow emperor's internal scriptures, devoted to the discussion of the question: "to the south of the sage, to the south of the sage, before the guangming, later to taichong; The land of taichong is known as the shade; In the shadow of the sun... Under guang Ming, the name is taiyin; Before the lunar New Year, the name was Yang Ming... The table of the eclampsia, called the sun. It is the separation of the three Yang, the sun is open, the yangming is the closing, the little Yang is the armature... The separation of the three Yin is also, the Yin is open, the syncope is closed, the less Yin is the pivot. Yin and Yang are three Yin and three Yang qi, the "three living things" is "six gasification life". Huangdi neijing load: "three and all day, but become, three adults", "the five, the gas three", so "everything" "three" is not heaven, earth, people, should be "open, close, pivot". "The emperor of huangdi," he asked, "the great theory", "heaven and earth together, six verses and all things change."

      Five, five, four, four, five, five, four, five, four, five, five, four, five, five, four, five, four, five, five, six, five, four, five, five,

      All things cannot be counted, and western science focuses on distinguishing between material differences between different things, while Chinese ancients are more highly regarded as "wise men and scholars". "Was made with" is found with dynamic change, according to the things show up in the process of movement, and long, and five basic tenses, created to wood, fire, earth, metal and water represented by symbols of "five elements" said. The book of "han shu · yi wenzhi" carries: "five lines of people, the five common form qi also." Five is better, it is five. The five - five - five movement of the elephant, the simple control of the complex, grasping the dynamics of the matter.

      It can be seen that the source of tai chi Yin and Yang is neither mysterious nor complicated.

      The status of liuqi in Chinese traditional culture

      The theory of luck is a study of the periodicity of natural change and its impact on human health and disease. The periodicity rule here is based on the sixth and fifth rhythm of natural six and five, which is the sixth rhythm of the five. The theory of luck is that the unity of heaven and man is the synchronization of the dynamic rhythm of the earth, which is the foundation of human health, and the disorder of the unity of nature is the root cause of all diseases.

      Specifically, in the theory of luck, even though the climate has important effect on disease, but the weather, images and pulse condition, sick elephants are influenced by five six gas law, weather and disease is parallel to the relative two aspects, not entirely causality, sick elephants, pulse condition can be individually or in weather comes first, so the five six air shipment is not originated from "summary" of the climate change law, should not be defined as "the ancient medical meteorology". At the same time, the ancients often contacted astronomy when discussing the five or six gas, but "heaven itself is the sky, and the age is the age", the ancients only used the celestial image to indicate the five six gas. In fact, astronomy is a symbol, a tool, not an astronomical decision.

      Long before the time of fuxi, the cognition of "tiantao" had reached a level. When the ancients said "sky", it meant nature. By observing the changes of the shadow and the movement of celestial bodies, the ancient ancestors produced figures such as tai chi and river maps. At the time of fuxi, it formed the gossip culture with the main symbol of taiji, Yin and Yang, four elephants and natural gossip. The gossip culture expresses the ancient people's understanding of "the way of heaven".

      Although the fuxi era is much earlier than the time of the yellow emperor, it is important for the culture of emperor yan and huangdi to be the source of the civilization.

      The important symbol of huangdi culture is the development of "huang li". The yellow emperor, through "tiegren lu lu", USES the standard dozen scale of the music tube to carry on "fly ash hou qi", discovered the time rule of twelve gas. However, because of the difficulty of "fly ash weather method", the great wisdom of the Chinese sage is the symbol of the musical law, which is called "astronomy". According to the article, "according to the hieroglyphs, it is known as the text". The twelve qi is an unchanging time unit, so it is called "law". Twelve gas is included in the six - gas system, which is called "six laws and six lu", also known as "xii lu". The ancients used 12 lu "to adjust the climate, to orbit the stars", rather than to get twelve gas from astronomy.

      China's "astronomy" is different from that of western astronomy. A man's breath is known by the sky. Gu yanwu "day to know record" record: "three generations above, everybody knows astronomy", hence rarely again wait for qi. The sky is high and the air is wasted. The astronomical expression of the twelve qi produces "twelve branches", and the name of the twelve is the hieroglyphic symbol of the sky, and the twelve qi is measured from the underground, so it is called "land branch". Twelve months of the year and twelve months; The combination of the 12 - lu and all directions evolved into the 24 solar terms.

      It is called the "law calendar" by the law of qi and music. The "music" is the great discovery of the Chinese ancestors and the great wisdom of mankind. The idea of "harmony" in Chinese culture also comes from music. "Joy, the sum of the earth and the earth," and "the great joy is the same with heaven and earth." The sixth law became the basis and origin of the theory and system of Chinese ancestors. Historical records: "the rule of the king, the rule of things, is the sixth law. The law is nothing at all. Six, five meet, produce sixty a son. The calendar, which is composed of sixty - a - - - time symbol, is five - six gas calendar.

      The standard of western civilization and society mainly depends on material life. The standard of Chinese civilization is to see the cognition of "law" in nature. It is the beginning of the age of Chinese civilization. "The yellow calendar" is the "history of the yellow emperor", which establishes the cultural core of Chinese civilization.

      The "music" is the great discovery of the Chinese ancestors and the great wisdom of mankind. Five - six gas is the study of how to "with the earth and the earth" theory.

The history records: "the yellow emperor test the star calendar, the establishment of five lines." The five movement was timed by the observation of the sky, so the symbol of the five movement (five lines) was called "heavenly stem". The theory of luck is carried out with "five notes", so the five shipments also need to be in accordance with the law. In the yellow emperor period, the theory of Yin and Yang is constructed based on the cognition of the six laws and the five cycles of the universe. The book of the han dynasty: "Yin and Yang five lines, thought the way of the yellow emperor."

      It is not a matter of one or a few constellations acting on the earth, but the overall result of the universe and the earth. The most feasible and correct way to study the relationship between heaven and earth is to observe the various physical and human feelings of the earth and to summarize and grasp its changing laws. In this way, ancient Chinese people discovered the law of "the corresponding laws of heaven" and produced the concept of "unity of heaven and man". From the universe, we study the universe, the relationship between heaven and earth, never find the twelve laws, and never produce the idea of "unity of heaven and man". The common ancestor concept, first is the common cultural concept. The most outstanding is the law calendar, and on the basis of the resulting Yin and Yang thought and the pursuit of the unity of heaven and man.

      Huangdi neijing rooted in culture, the yellow emperor huangdi neijing five of six qi theory, inheritance law of the Chinese civilization is five or six, condensed the essence of the culture of the era of the yellow emperor, is the living fossil of the yellow emperor culture, so it can be the key to the treasure-house of Chinese civilization.

      The status of the theory of five - six - gas theory in TCM theory

      The theory of traditional Chinese medicine is basically based on five - six - gas.

      The basic mode of TCM theory is the Yin and Yang wuxing and the Tibetan government. The Yin and Yang theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the Yin and Yang movement produces three Yin and three Yang (sun, sun Yang, yangming, taiyin, less Yin, and syncope) six qi, also known as "six classics". The theory of six classics is one of the core theories of TCM. Zhang zhongjing's "treatise on typhoid fever" has become the classic of traditional Chinese medicine with "six classics".

      The basic law of Yin and Yang is "seven losses and eight benefits". "Huangdi neijing · Yin and Yang should be like the great theory" : "to know seven losses and eight benefits, they can be adjusted, not to use this, but also to premature failure." If you don't know what to do, you won't know what "seven losses" means. In recent years, according to the unearthed medical Jane "under the world", the author enumerates the seven losses of the ancient atrial surgery, and many people think that the seven losses are the special term for the operation of the house. It's not. According to the location map of sanyang, the "eight" is the northeast, and the corresponding early spring, the yangqi is growing from three to one. "Seven" is the west, corresponding to fall, the Yang qi is from nine to seven, continuously receives health (loss). When adjusting Yin and Yang, we should first understand the time and tendency of Yin and Yang, such as the need to obey and help the growth of Yang qi during the spring and summer season, which is called "yiba". Autumn and winter two seasons are about to comply with the law of natural decline, to help the Yang qi collection, so-called "qiu dong raise Yin" is "seven losses".

      Five six gas emphasis is a dynamic, tenses, the key to heaven corresponding, is to grasp the dynamic rhythm of heaven and earth, Yin and Yang of the profits and losses of the relationship, "insufficient day northwest, southeast of discontent" and "seven damage of eight yi", etc., are all descriptions of virtual dynamic change of Yin and Yang company profit and loss of heaven and earth. The Tibetan elephant doctrine of Chinese medicine "each takes the gas to hide", the sky has five - six gas, the old people have five Tibetan six. Five - six gas represents the tense, so the huangdi neijing refers to "Tibet gas law". The theory of "Tibetan elephants" is the expression of the dynamic change of the five - six - gas movement in the human body. The twelve meridians are named after three Yin and three Yang, and the early appearance is the "eleven veins", which also shows that the theoretical basis is also five - six gas.

      The five - six gas theory is used to predict the epidemic situation, highlighting the characteristic advantages of TCM in disease prediction. The correct application of the theory of five - six gas can provide an important reference for disease prediction and disease prevention. However, luck has always changed, and the yellow emperor's inner scripture says "there is always a bit, and there is no need to be angry," and so the five six is "not to be counted, to be like". There are some people in the society who predict the disease with five or six gas, which tend to simplify, mechanize, absolutize and mystify the luck prediction, causing people to misunderstand the theory of luck.

      The first is to look at the state of the human body, rather than diagnosing specific diseases. Traditional Chinese medicine is medicated, and the drug is classified into three Yin and three Yang qi, which is the Yin and Yang gasification attribute of the drug. This is a theory established by the concept of Chinese culture, earth, people and things. The generation of the theories of traditional Chinese medicine has a direct relation with the sixth air, and different luck backgrounds produce different academic theories and form different academic schools. Starting with the theory of luck, it can clarify the large number of historical cases in TCM.

      The dominant thought method of "huangdi neijing" is objective and dialectical, and we have used the statistical analysis of a large number of meteorological data to prove the existence of the rule of the five six gas cycle. In clinical practice, the application of the five - six gas guidance, the treatment of difficult and even emergency, shows the rare curative effect. Therefore, correct understanding of traditional Chinese medicine theory and the close relationship between civilization of the yellow emperor, correctly understand the scientific connotation and scientific civilization of the yellow emperor, people will change the prejudice to the traditional Chinese medicine theory, also brings to the Chinese pride and self-confidence.
