  55. Floating:
    Located in the exterior. With finger raised, it has surplus; when pressing down, it is insufficient. When pressure is released, it regains its full strength.
  56. Drumskin:
    Bowstring and large with an empty center, feels like the head of a drum.

  59. Scallion-stalk:
    Floating, soft, large body, but empty center; feels like a scallion leaf.
  60. Scattered:
    It is floating, large, and without root; with light pressure, it is easily irregular, becoming scattered and chaotic. Heavy pressure leads to its absence.

    Floating, fine, soft, and flexible. Can be felt with light pressure but cannot be obtained by heavy pressure.
  62. Deep:
    Located near the bone. Cannot be detected with light or moderate pressure but can be felt with heavy pressure.
  63. Weak:
    Deep, fine, soft like thread.
  64. Hidden:
    Difficult to feel, under the sinews, not obvious, required heavy pressure to the bone to obtain.
  65. Confined:
    Pressed superficially or moderately, does not respond, but can be obtained by heavy pressure. Hard, firm, not changeable, replete, large, bowstring, forceful, and long.
  66. Slow:
    Below 60 bpm or less than 4 beats per breath.Moderate or relaxed: Relaxed, loose, slack and on the verge of slow. Right around 60bpm.

  77. Short:
    Does not reach its location or range.
