Both I Ching and the Vedas are said to contain the totality of all human knowledge.
Both are complex, complicated systems that are hard to decode/understand.
The hexagrams of the I Ching are essentially manifestations of Tao, just like the Gods of the Vedas are manifestations of Brahman. Each hexagram, like each god, has a different personality. Each of the hexagrams and gods, come to the forefront at different times, interplaying with each other.
I believe that the I Ching is the Vedas of China.
