gēng (更)

to change or transform; with a different contemporary pronunciation, gèng (更), it means “more.” My rendition of gēng (更) in Sùwèn 3.11 refers to a progression of pathology, and is a play on both meanings. This reminds one that many diseases change or transform, by the embodied spirit progressing through an ongoing process of accumulation.
