white plastic made in the U.S.
Designed by Leslie B. Carlson


The six sides of this die show the following:

— one side for +, or “Yes” (meaning “Yes, but there is more to explore/understand.”)

— one side for ++, or “Yes, Yes” (meaning “Your basic understanding is good enough.”)

— one side for +++, or “Yes, Yes, Yes,” (a complete Yes)

— one side for —, or “No” (meaning “Your question is missing the point.”)

— one side for - -, or “No, No” (meaning a basic No.)

— one side for - - -, or “No, No, No” (in this case we need to find out what the Sage wants to communicate.)


Note: The use of the RTCM (or retrospective three-coin method) is described in these four books: The Philosophy of the I Ching; I Ching, The Oracle of the Cosmic Way; Healing Yourself the Cosmic Way, and The Psyche Revealed Through the I Ching.

The RTCM enables you to understand in a precise way what the I Ching wants to communicate to you. In addition, it enables you to have meaningful conversations with the Sage that speaks through the I Ching


A word about the probability

The distribution of the Yes’s and No’s on the six sides of the die does not correspond precisely to the probability law pertaining to the use of three coins. However, the Sage that speaks through the I Ching reassured us that it can use this die to give us the correct answers.
