 Yin Yang

In Chinese Taoist philosophy, the concept of yin yang (often referred to in the west as yin and yang) is used to describe how polar or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn.

Yin Yang are complementary opposites within a greater whole.   The greater whole (at its extremity) is unseen and unknowable.  In this sense it is similar to the "photon" in that a photon is seen as either a particle or a wave because its true nature is not visible.

 The idea that yin and yang has a moral dimension originated in the Confucian school and is sometimes viewed as such in western cultures .  Church members may choose to accept the moral or judgmental elements of the yin yang in the same way they accept Newtonian Physics.   That is, in the section of the multiverse we exist in, certain rules or laws seem to work and we should pay attention to them.
