- Recently experimental study paradigms are widely applied into the language study. The experimental results about the topic “Interactions among space, time and number” can be attested or identified by the linguistic expressions and Symbolic Cognitive Artifacts in Ancient China. To some extent, the language study is a basic complementary verification for experimental study. In this paper, I will use these symbolic cognitive artefacts (the Yellow River Map and the Luoshu Square) in Yi-Ching as a window into the mind, and discuss them in relation to cognitive archeology. And I give a full account of the artefacts, including a full account of the textual sources to understand how these artefacts were employed. Finally I claim that the artifacts can provide a window into the mind, just like language does.
