Recently, while working on the translation of Wang Ju-Yi’s Case Studies in Applied Channel Theory 1 into English, I asked Dr. Wang to explain some concepts in more detail to ensure the translation of certain terms was in accordance with his understanding. One of the terms that led to a number of useful discussions was the concept of ‘constraint’ (yù 郁). Dr. Wang’s explanation of this term branched off into a deeper analysis of the relationship between constraint and channel qi transformation. The following article is a summary and extrapolation of Dr. Wang’s understanding of constraint through Applied Channel Theory.
