VL006 - Yin Yang Taoism Symbol of Balance/Harmony Small Vinyl Cutout Window Sticker
In Chinese philosophy, the concept of yin yang, literally meaning "shadow and light", is used to describe how polar opposites or seemingly contrary forces are connected and interdependent in the natural world. Forces like tides, seasons, flood and drought, they all give rise to each other in turn in relation to each other. The concept lies at the origins of many branches of classical Chinese science and philosophy, as well as being a primary guideline of traditional Chinese medicine.
Yin and yang are not opposing forces (dualities), but complementary forces, unseen (hidden, feminine) and seen (manifest, masculine), that interact to form a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects as light could not be understood if darkness didn't exist, and shadow cannot exist without light. The concept of yin and yang is often symbolized by various forms of the Taijitu symbol, for which it is probably best known in western cultures.
There is a perception (especially in the West) that yin and yang correspond to evil and good. However, in Daoist metaphysics, good/bad distinctions and other dichotomous moral judgments are perceptual and not real, and yin-yang is an indivisible whole. In the ethics of Confucianism on the other hand, a moral dimension is associated with the idea of yin yang.
