Here is another excellent example of the “change model” depicted here, i.e. “Ethnically, the Okinawans are believed to be a mixture of three racial groups: Mongolian, Ainu, and Malayan. Their life styles are clearly adopted from surrounding countries, but have been molded over the years to create their own distinctive culture.” - Okinawan Primeval History, Isshinryu Isshinkai eBook, “Isshinkai Manual.”
Now, if non-change means we adhere to the old model religiously and without question and without change then there would be no karate, no Okinawan, no Okinawan culture and no Okinawan belief system to learn from and to admire. It is apparent that the I Ching or at least the beleif system preached in Isshinryu that says change is good because without this taking the old, non-change, way they cycling it though other such non-change ways to achieve a more or less sequential change that occurred over years to create and achieve a totally new and unique cultural belief system that gave us karate and the kind and gentle peoples of Okinawa.
