Yep.  That's the one.

If you are embracing, you are still separate from the other.

Hi dawei,

 

Like a couple making love - locked yet "separate from the other"?

 

Like Abigail and Abraham?

 

It is...

One begat two.

Two begat three.

Three begat the ten thousand things.

 

One represents heaven.

Two represents earth.

Three represents heaven, the union of heaven and earth.

 

Separate yet joined. Multiple yet one. Duality and non duality are one.

 

In the words of The Oracle, that'll bake your noodle.

light becomes dark and dark becomes light. There is darkness in the light and light in darkness.

 

We can not have light without  dark. 

 

Scientist have gone out of their way to prove absolute darkness by creating an environment that is unnatural and not able to support life. Protons were still able to penetrate massive thick walls and give off light.

 

The Taoist have already observed how things work in the natural world for over 8000 years. I find it interesting that people think they can change it.

The primal and constant state of the universe is dark (Yin).  Light requires energy (Yang).  Dark = Yin = Rest.

Keep in mind that yin does not mean dark per-se, rather is means darker; and yang does not mean light, but rather lighter

This also ties in with the notion that yin and yang are relative:

In this case grey would be yang and black would be yin.

But here grey would be yin and white would be yang.

Although there are no absolute yin or yang 物, I think.

 

I keep coming back to this color chart. I guess a picture does speak a thousand words!

Quite true! There can be no shadow without an object to cast it. When that happens one side of the object must be bathed in light. To lament the shadow is to also lament the light.

I still prefer shades of grey as opposed to white/black, light/dark.
