I see the parallel of the four states between the areas you've listed, but the 'dimensional' properties? I've personally read the Book of Changes, and I can't recall any direct mention of dimensions.
As for the four states of Buddhism, I am familiar with them as: "ji", "ri", "ri ji muge", "ji ji muge". In what way do you see these as expressing dimension? I mean, these aren't necessarily physical states, so to boil them down to dimensions isn't really all that accurate.
The four states of society...I don't know. I mean, thats a pretty general grouping.

I mean, don't get me wrong, it just seems like you're reaching here. These could all very well be spurious correlations.
Tianman32 hi.

It is something I always do – to make connections and parallels, finding patterns amongst things. They may not be exact, but its not the content that matters, it is what lies behind it! If all things are extrapolated from one, then there is a ‘way’ in which this happens – what I call ‘universal synchronicity’ it is why there are such connections and what joins the elements and aspects involved in coincidence.

Keep reaching – you’ll make a druid yet. :p
