an acupuncture discussion ...
“The twenty-fifth difficult issue: There are twelve meridians, but the [body's] five depots and six palaces [add up to only] eleven. Of what nature is the one [missing] meridian?
It is like this. One of the meridians encompasses the hand-minor yin [vessel] and the heart-master [vessel] as separate vessels. The heart-master and the Triple Burner represent outside and inside. Both have a name but no form. Hence, one speaks of twelve meridians.”
