Sequence of "Existence" in the Chart of the Sequence

"Existence" is in the position of "Completion of the Inside".

As one of the four Primal Hexagrams of "The Inside", "Existence"
contrasts with "#1. The Creative Spirit" to establish the Space for Creative Experience.
The Hexagrams of "#3. Before Completion" and "#4. After Completion"
contrast to establish Time for the Creative Experience.

Relationship of "Existence" to the calendar and "The Great Wheel"

The four Hexagrams of "The Inside" represent the contrasts allowing
for the the existence of Creative Space and Time.

The eight Hexagrams of "The Inner Circle" represent the movement of
Creative Spirit through the metaphysical universe into the physical universe.

The calendar and "The Great Wheel" represent the 52 Hexagrams of "The Outer Circle",
or the physical universe. Because of that, "Existence" is not represented on
the calendar or "The Great Wheel."

It is positioned outside the physical universe, a causual power
creating both the metaphysical and physical universes.
