Fire relates to the heart itself, but does the triple warmer relate to the trigram heaven among the eight forces?
I propose that the title of this article be changed to Triple Burner (or some variant of the term). In my experience, this is the more common name in english usage. I am not proposing that this is the case for all related concepts: I more often hear qi, dantien, lao gong, and of course yin and yang over any translations of the terms. But in my experience, Triple burner is the prefered term for the organ/meridian. Shaggorama 05:49, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
There isn't a single reference cited. I'll dig out my Porkert and paraphrase from there, but unless we can get some cites for a lot of what is here already, most of it will have to go and the article will be much shorter. --Bradeos Graphon Βραδέως Γράφων (talk) 15:37, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
- Yes, sorry about that, as the original author I've written up a blog post with the context surrounding it. There are some references on my blog post to books and authors who cover this entry-level TCM concept stuff, but at this point all I can do is wave a copy of _Zang Fu_ by Jeremy Ross and _Foundations of Chinese Medicine_ by Giovanni Maciocia and say, that's how they're described in the literature.
