    Maybe we can add all the opposites - good/bad, hope/despair, create/destroy, war/peace etc. One does not exist without the other.Yet we want more good than bad. Thank you for defining the terms in a simple way. (Report) Reply

    everything destined pairs, at once contradictory
    the one have its meaning because of the presence the another
    this is what causes the difference needed, because the differences can achieve harmonization
    this called Ying/Yang

    May be you they are all relative values.
    And yin/yang brings a certain merge in.
    I accept this is modern poetry. And it very strong.
