Greetings and Salutations

Hello! I study Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and found this forum by asking google if Vladimir Nabokov ever studied daoism because he is quoted as saying 

“Does there not exist a high ridge where the mountainside of scientific knowledge joins the opposite slope of artistic imagination?”

 

This quote made me think of yin and yang and the Chinese words representing a mountain with the sunny side and the shade or dark side represented. Of course, anyone who has absorbed mountain peaks may be struck with the idea of the whole being made of at least two distinct sides. 

 

And the forum made me introduce myself in order to read more. So here I am.

Hi truli,

 

Yeah, it is the rare mountain that has only sunny sides.  The concept of Yin/Yang are ever present.  It is what drives life.

 

You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.

 

May you enjoy your time here.

How exciting! My poor cat is going to the dentist tomorrow. Poor baby. Do you have any suggestions for treating trauma in cats? I give him lots of love, and fresh chicken. That seems to work but it pains me to see him in pain. :(

treating trauma

Tea made out of the flowers of hops and chamomile.  Apply with eye dropper.  Safe and effective for cats.
