The “Great Way”, which deems all things in the universe as an integral whole, is a fundamental concept in Chinese civilization. This is how Fuxi, the legendary inventor of the eight trigrams, viewed the world. It is manifested in ideals that have been long pursued by the Chinese people: a happy life, harmonious family and society, prosperous country, solidarity, and unanimity between humanity and nature. From a cultural and theoretical perspective, it underpins the concept of “a global community of shared future” proposed by the Communist Party of China.
