The world as we experience it is a spectrum of opposites: Yin & Yang, black & white, hot & cold, chaos & order. These polarities create us and our experience of the world, differences define each other, yet we discriminate rather than celebrate them. Polarity exists in us all, in every aspect of our existence, the person and the collective. Will we ever see beyond the superficial differences that exist in society today? To come together as a unified species and embrace our collective humanity?
