The binary / I Ching depiction represents a fully orthogonal system.
Imagine a fully symmetrical binary tree where all movement happens at right angles, or better yet, a point which is the intersection of an arbitrary number of lines, all perpendicular to each other.
Each digit we add or subtract is one line; an opposing/complementing pair of directions/aspects.
All movement happens at right angles, without deviation.
This structure maps out a clean ndimensional space; creates space so to say.
To create something from the symmetry of nothing/everything, we do so through antisymmetry.
This situation is not unlike in 3d graphics programs, where the nothingness of the three dimensional coordinate system is filled with the illusionary antisymmetry of polygons to create boundaries  and thus, form.
Circles are enclosures. In the line of polygons, the triangle is the first circle.
With establishing a relation between three points of the orthogonal system, we create angles.
We create 'something', a form, at a cost of distortion relative to the original system.
Selfawareness as we know it is born somewhere around here: the angles of the infinities of perceiving One set a dynamic in motion.
