x005-1

 

The concept of down and below is clarified in relation to a horizontal line. The stroke below the fundamental line was originally a dot : x005-2 which was extended to a line : x005-3 for ease in writing. The modified forms :x005-4 andx005-5eventually led to the final ideograph:x005-6. The characters below, although literally under water, are figuratively above water.
