Found these gems on the interwebs, and got me thinking about the nature of dualism…

I find these really compelling. For we all tend to think of things as ‘good’ or bad’, positive or negative, yin and yang. But the true nature of yin and yang isn’t just about being opposites, but that they are intertwined in an eternal dance. Of course, in the ‘Aliens vs. Predator’ universe, humans are the third wheel in the relationship, so really it’s bad vs. worse. (We are definitely NOT at the top of that food chain…)

This also reminds me of the Looney Tunes cartoon starring Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf. Every morning, they go off to work together, and punch in on a time-clock. It is interesting to think that these two are not mortal enemies locked in an eternal struggle, but merely playing out their place in the tao.
