Yin and Yang
Everything has an opposite – up down, hot cold,
dark light, positive negative, male female, and so on. These
opposites, as already mentioned, are known as Yin and Yang.
This basic polarity is inherent in the nature of reality,
and is also part of the architecture of our brains and minds.
It is the “binary code”, represented by o and 1, in mathematics,
which makes possible much of our electronic technology. Yin
and Yang operate according to very specific laws. These include
the principles : everything has a Yin and a Yang aspect ;
everything has a proportion of Yin and Yang ; every Yin and
Yang can be further divided ; Yin and Yang create each other
; Yin and Yang control each other ; and Yin and Yang can each
transform into the other. Yin and Yang are represented by
the now familiar symbol, which is known as the Tai Qi – the
Supreme Ultimate. Graphically they are represented by a broken
and an unbroken line.
