About this site

I'm J.M. Berger. I'm a freelance journalist covering a wide variety of topics. These days, that means terrorism, for the most part. But I also enjoy writing about religion, spirituality and religion-science convergence. This site is an outlet for that impulse, but it is also devoted to a personal obsession of mine -- figuring out the logic that informs the King Wen sequence of the i-Ching. It's not the most intuitive read sometimes -- I'm working on that. I am not blessed with an abundance of free time at the moment, but I usually manage to update this site every couple of months or so. But I hope you enjoy it nevertheless (the more you already know about i-Ching, the better you will be able to follow). I have other Web sites relevant to this material, which are linked above. You can contact me at with questions, comments, suggestions or requests.
