In the YIN- YANG symbol ... which color is the YIN .....?
actually the word YIN is both female and masculine in Chinese
there are 3 WRITING CHARACTERS for the word YIN
# 1 SILVER / MONEY ,
# 2 sound or tone
#3 Protection/shelter/shade infers dark
according to youthkiawaaz.com
the CHINESE symbol YIN -YANG where
the YIN forms the BLACK portion with a WHITE dot
and YANG forms the WHITE portion with a BLACK dot
it originated in Chinese philosophy of TAOISM
it describes that the opposite or contrary forces
tend to BALANCE each other in the NATURAL world
what i find interesting is in psychology
the propensity of Human beings to
associate BLACK with BAD
the COWBOY with the BLACK hat
or person who's clothes were black
or SKIN color
was portrayed as the OUTLAW or VILLAIN EVIL distrustful
perhaps humans FEAR of the NIGHT
interesting is HOW by what means did one determine
one is being "JUDGED" by others
..the word JUDGED is defined as to form a OPINION or conclusion ..
no reference in the definition of JUDGED to indicate
if that opinion is positive negative or neutral or has
element of BOTH positive and negative just like YIN-YANG
People also have the propensity to ASSOCIATE the word JUDGED
to be NEGATIVE that its about BAD BEHAVIOR .
. BOB can also determine make a judgement
TED did an appropriate behavior a positive action
i can present 3 POSSIBILITIES
# 1 the questioner has SPECIAL mind reading talents
# 2 people are engaging in verbal communication
# 3 the questioner is INTERPRETING others facial or body expression
so when this question is asked .
.. Some people might SMILE
and others show no discernible expression ..
. many people are CONDITIONED to think in DICHOTOMIES
consider if you blended WHITE with BLACK one gets GRAY
the HOMOGENIZING EFFECT

Yin is black and white. Mostly black, but has a small white dot.
