Yin and Yang at the Laundromat

An ancient insight is profound but is sometimes pushed to absurd extremes.  Maybe the yin of solemn generality needs a little more of the yang of irreverent specificity.
(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)

Carpe Diem #1229 Yin & Yang

The ancient insight that «seemingly opposite … forces may actually be complementary … and interdependent» has modern echoes in wave/particle duality and concerns about work/life balance.  The insight is profound but (like many insights) is sometimes pushed to absurd and pernicious extremes.  I refuse to shrug off falsehood as the yin that complements the yang of truth.

Maybe the yin of solemn generality needs a little more of the yang of irreverent specificity.

Harmonious Completion of Necessary Cycle
|Balanced yin and yang.
|Spinning world will not wobble.
|Cosmic clothes washer.

      1. [2020-12-09]  The original post title «Yin and Yang» really was too generic.  I finally decided to add «at the Laundromat» (in hopes of making it both more descriptive and more enticing).
