Yin And Yang
The origin of the yin and yang is obscure, but ancient Chinese philosophy has often been described as a concept of dualism. The yin and yang describe the contradicting opposite forces that may serve to complement one another. This philosophy is actively present within our worlds, everything has its counter opposite, the sun has the moon, black has white, dark has a light, and so on. Yin often symbolizes the feminine, internal energy, the negative, passive and intuitive.
Yang is depicted as masculine, external energy, dominant, active, and of a logical mind. This Chinese concept of contrary forces is believed to create balance, an interrelation of peace.
