The Open Circle contains all aspects of the work, and is revealed in 32 'forms'. It is based to some degree on the structural patterns of Five Element Wu Xing which you might like to think of as an 'embedded' pattern.
Creative Balance contains 24 forms (distilled from and developed in a different 'pattern)
You might think that the relationship between Open Circle and Creative Balance is like that between particle/wave. It is not so much repetition as coming at the narrative from a different perspective. Creative Balance is experienced in two parts:
Wu xin - by which I’m meaning: Invisible/ without shape. There are 11 'forms'
Wu Ji - by which I’m meaning: without limits. There are 13 'forms'.
