Scientists are always looking
for a Theory of Everything. A theory that ties all others together.
It will be expressed of course in an equation. So laymen not versed
in mathematics won't know if the theory is an Eureka moment or pure
baloney. An ancient Chinese philosophy comes pretty close to being a
theory of everything. Yin and yang are elements of Feng Shui.
Everything consists of negative and positive forces and must be in
balance. In physics, negative subatomic particles are balanced by
positive charges (electrons and protons). Humanity has the masculine
and feminine genders, for procreation and preservation of the human
race. There is night and day, softness and hardness, etc. An excess
of yin or yang leads to imbalance. You can take this as far as you
want. This theory of yin and yang may be the theory of everything
that scientists have been searching for, and it was conceived in
Asia long ago. Think about it. The ancients were not as ignorant as
many have thought. Of course it won't be recognized by scientists
who would like to claim credit for discovering the big, unifying
theory. It's all about Ego. (which of course has the accompanying
Id) Could it be possible that Freud used the same theory in
psychological terms? Gotta go, my yin wants to converse with my
yang. Or vice-versa.
