Earth [Di 地] 
Earth [Di 地] is the ‘receptive’ ultimate ‘Yin’: the material setting that allows the ‘Yang’ of Heaven to actualise its concepts and laws.  Heaven-Earth are mutually interdependent: without Earth the laws and concepts / order that derive from Heaven would not be able to be actualised, and without Heaven, Earth would remain in an unrealised state of primordial chaos.  Earth is therefore much more than the soil upon which we walk (or a planet within the solar system): it is the ‘Mother of all Creation,’ enabling and sustaining all forms of animate and inanimate life.
