The liver plays a primordial role in the sleeping process. During the waking stage, the liver manages the circulation of wei qi on the surface and, through the jing jin, muscular activity. The liver is also responsible for the eyes and vision. The liver plays an important role in the initiation of sleep by mobilizing wei qi inward, which results in a lowering of muscle tone. We have seen that this movement of wei qi to the interior causes sensory relaxation as well, starting with the eyes, the nose, and then the ears.

The term “depth” is defined as the position of the channel in relation to wei/nei (outer/inner), where yang is exterior, and yin interior (Fig. 17). Tai yang is the outermost channel, which is in contact with the world; then comes shao yang, and then the deepest yang, yang ming. Tai yang is more yang than yang ming, and therefore closer to the outside (wei). The yin channels are energetically closer to the inside (nei). This organization in space is clearly demonstrated in the disposition of the 12 primary channels in the body, where the most yang zones will be tai yang, followed by shao yang, then yang ming, then tai yin (the yin closest to the outside), followed by jue yin, and then shao yin, the deepest yin in the body.
