    • In Chinese and other Eastern thought, yin and yang are the two opposing and complementary forces that make up all phenomena of life.
    • Both proceed from the Supreme Ultimate and together they represent the process of the universe and all that is in it.
    • The concept of the yin-yang is very ancient, and its precise origins are unknown. In the third century BCE, it formed the basis for an entire school of cosmology, the Yin Yang School.
    • According to the Encyclopedia Britannica , "The significance of yin-yang through the centuries has permeated every aspect of Chinese thought, influencing astrology, divination, medicine, art, and government."
  • 6.  
  • 7. CONCLUSION
    • I really enjoyed the Chinese culture, and the belief of the Yin and Yang.
    • The balance of the two is really interesting, and very fun to learn about.
