: The core Taoist concept of yin and yang is
: not yin and yang. It is yin/yang. Yin and
: yang are simply two different ways of
: looking at the same thing.
: "Change" is just a different way
: of looking at the same thing. Change is the
: product of divided thinking. Relative
: thinking. Dualistic thinking. Split-mind
: There is only the whole.
Butcho, you might enjoy reading, learning from, even consulting the I Ching, (Book of *Changes*, aka Book of Wisdom), an exquisite, subtle, esoteric and profound explanation of yin, yang, and change. The meaning of terms lies in the culture in which they arose; I Ching is probably the premier source for understanding the Chinese meanings of yin, yang and change.
There are many translations, of course. I have several, the Wilhelm/Baynes my most respected as a source for wisdom, insight and understanding for thirty years. It's a treasure.
