Question and answer
What do the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture and the symbol of the Yin and Yang have in common?
Yin and yang are critical concepts to Chinese philosophy, and they are also integrated into Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chinese architecture, and many other branches of Chinese culture and society. [ Famously, these concepts are often represented with the yin/yang symbol, in which equal parts of black and white are shown in balance to demonstrate their harmony. Rather than being actual forces or things, yin and yang are better understood as abstract concepts which explain a variety of phenomena. They are viewed as complementary, arising from the same root or action and transforming each
other while also working in opposition. They also strive for balance, reaching for a state of equilibrium so that they will be at peace with the universe as a whole. One of the classic representations of this concept is as male and female. Women are said to be “yin,” associated with things like water and cool temperatures, while men are “yang,” associated with fire and metal. Under the beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine, every body should have a proper balance of yin and yang, and it may be necessary to correct this balance with various practices, herbs, and foods. ]
