jīngluò (經絡)

Most often, jīngluò (絡) is rendered into English as a simple conjunction — jīng (經) translated as “channels” and luò (絡) as network or connecting [vessels]. However, if we understand the jīng (經) are the twelve ‘organizing principles’ of flow and vital process within individuals, then we might render jīngluò (絡) as a complex — either the “network of organizing principles” or “connections of the organizing principles.”
