第九章 四象學 CHAPTER NINE: THE FOUR MANIFESTATIONS [i.e. DOUBLE PALM CHANGE] 四象者。兩儀各生一陰陽也。太極生兩儀者。八卦拳之奇耦也。復於兩儀之中。各加一奇一耦。以象太陰太陽少陰少陽而名為四象。四象即本拳之奇耦。各加一陰一陽。而分為金木水火也。在腹內則為心肝肺腎。在拳中則為前後左右。俗稱名為雙換掌也。言四象不及土者。太極即土也。拳中起躦落翻。動而未發謂之横。横者亦土也。因其生生不息謂之土。因其一氣運用謂之太極。太極也。土也。一而已。故不及土。僅言四象者。而土已在其中矣。夫四象旣有陰陽。則八卦相交。彼此相盪。一卦可盪於八卦之上。八卦相盪。更可重為六十四卦。按易一卦六畫。下三畫象天地人三才也。上三畫相盪。因而重之。象天地人三才各有陰陽也。以明拳中各法左旋右轉。皆有陰陽之式也。故左旋象下三畫。頭手足象天地人三才也。右轉象上三畫。因天地人三才各有陰陽也。八卦即四象之陰陽。六十四卦即陰陽配合之生氣。八卦成列。因而重之。則陰陽相交。自可生生無已。豈第六十四卦哉。雖至千卦萬卦。總不出乎六十四卦。六十四卦總是八卦。八卦總是四象。四象總是兩儀。兩儀總是一氣之流行也。紫陽讀參同契云。一自虛無兆質。兩儀因一開根。四象不離二體。八卦互為子孫。六十四卦於此而生。萬象變動於此而出。誠哉斯言。可為此拳之鑒矣。 The four manifestations are born from the dual aspects, which were generated by the grand polarity.
