Remember that the eight trigrams are in fact traditionally presented in the form of a simple 2-dimensional mandala. Why would it not make sense that the sixty-four hexagrams could be arranged in the form of a mandala as well? It would be a somewhat more complex mandala to be sure, but a mandala nonetheless. That is the form or pattern we will be seeking.
