Duality of nature

Filed under: Misc — Teal @ 4:48 pm

The thought of duality struck me one fine evening, amidst heavy Chennai waterspouts. I was sitting in my balcony and taking a good glance outside, enjoying the rains. My sis and me were having one of our arbitrary conversations, when I can across a few points.
Think about it:

  • In Hinduism, we have the Ardhanareeshwarar. This form is actually a representation of Shakti and Shiva together as one, implying the equal might of both.
  • In Taoism, we have the ying-yang: which quite plainly balances the equilibrium of good and evil.
  • In Christianity, we have Adam and Eve, the first two humans, representing Male and Female.
  • In good ol’ programming, we have Boolean variables: True or False.
  • In Logic gates, we have: on or off. [Don’t care about don’t care]
  • Coming down to bits: 0 and 1.
  • Good and Bad.
  • Heads and Tails.
  • Jedis and Sith lords.
  • Rebels and Agents.
  • Neo and Agent Smith.
  • Love and hate.
  • War and peace.

Duality is all around us.



  1. Nice groundwork on the duality thing… wish 2 add sm more 2 ur list– angels n demons, dithi n adithi(mothers of devas n asuras);dvaitha n adhvaitha…
    True tht no. 2 is a synonym of equal and opposite complementing power.

  6. @ me2rock:
    Will be waiting 4 da i/ps.
    @ HA:
    +ve and -ve charges only exist. Neutrality occurs as a result of the combi of both, and not independantly
    @ Rebel:
    Good pt.
