On the eighth day of the lunar month, half of the moon is visible, and the other half is dark. However, the bright half does not negate the existence of the dark side –on the contrary, it indicates and affirms its presence.
Similarly, when the ‘head’ of a coin is visible to us, we know there is a ‘tail’, and when we look at the stem and leaves of a bush, we understand that it would not stand without invisible roots.
There is no ‘here’ without ‘there’, no ‘close’ without ‘far’, no ‘high’ without ‘low’, no ‘big’ without ‘small’, no ‘young’ without ‘old’, no ‘good’ without ‘bad’…
Far from being the logical antithesis of any phenomenon, its opposite is the necessary cause for its manifestation.
