I have an excellent book at home I can reference, and I would love to include links to other associated ritual objects besides the Bi, as described in that book, including those referenced in Dragon Bones, a novel by Lisa See, author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. I think these kind of references and links can help to generate greater interest and understanding in other cultures, both historic and contemporary. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Beadmatrix (talk • contribs) 11:05, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

"It has been suggested that congs were an ancieny form of axle bearing. The rectangular outer surface enables the axle to be braced against a flat suface such as the wooden base of a cart or a drill bed. Incised tracks on this outer suface allow for the bearing to be lashed securely. Similarly, bi discs are an early clutch plate type mechanism for transferring force between axial loads."
