    As for the short poem about the rag ball and it's meaning, it does have a meaning. The poem represents the failed hopes of Tagomi. Spring is the promise of happiness and sun for a child, but in reality it offers no promise and will as likely rain a child out as give them joy. In Tagomi's mind, the watch was the key to establishing a warm relationship. It bore within it the same power as spring, but like spring the watch had no power and the gift was met with cold indifference.

    The I ching has predictive power in The Man in the High Castle because it it represents the third layer of reality in the book. There is the layer of reality that the events of the Book portray;the layer of reality that The Grasshopper occupies;Finally,there is PKD's reality, in which he uses the I Ching to determine the events of the book for the characters. In reality, Pkd did not choose I ching passages for the story, the I ching revealed to Pkd what must or could happen, around which he sculpted the reality of the text.
