I'm not sure if this is quite right. The Tao Te Ching states that The Tao gives birth to One. One gives birth to Two. Two gives birth to Three. Three gives birth to all things. (or 10,000 things to be more traditional) The I-Ching does predate the Tao Te Ching, but I haven't found any references to how the it is depicted here.
