It is 539 years before the common era.

Chen Yu consults the Book of Changes. He sifts the yarrow sticks. He casts the I Ching.

He casts it … poorly.

The hexagram he casts does not appear in any books. It is only spoken of on the forbidden scroll.

It is hexagram 68, “Emptiness.”

There are some who say that Chen Yu broke the world.
