I don’t remember now how Yin/Yang got my interest back in 2014 but it was an interesting topic to study. It resulted in an eleven post series to covered many aspects of the Yin/Yang.
In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (also yin-yang or yin yang, 陰陽yīnyáng “dark—bright”) describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, expanding and contracting) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality symbolized by yin and yang.
