Dear Prof. Mei,
Thank you very much for your letter re the above which I have enjoyed very much and found the page 15 particulary beautiful.
I would like if I may enclose few of my own observations and conclusion to which I came during my long medical practice and a brief exposure to Chinese medecine since 2008.
I feel that the equilibrium you are writing about can only work if its in dynamic form ,we must rejoyce in our differences which unite us and must not strive for equality which would be manifested in energetic nirvana and death. The difference is the engine of all movement in life but as you pointed out it must be borne on the wings of harmony and not inequality.
I agree with you that virtual Yin is divorced from reality and cannot work but virtual Yang is a useful tool as a preccusor and a tool for imagination which supports human “tinkering” which has been in the forefront of human progress.
Benign competition is good because it leads into inventions but is bad when it turns into greed.
I was going to ask you re the title: Conceiving theYin and Yang, we do not conceive it it is there already we maybe percieve it ,become aware of it or reawaken it ??? or have I misunderstood the meaning of your thoughts?
With kind regards and best wishes
Dr C D Perko
