Would like to hear How unified science explains this.
Poem: Symphony of opposites
All true, all truly contradictory, all truly beautiful and sacred. All opposites meet at the same place and yet there is no place.
All good and yet all is evil, where both life and death meet as lovers.
One in the many and many in the one. Stars of light shine in the darkness and sounds are heard by the silent one. Shapes and forms in the formless void, dance by and take form by the will of shapeless shapes.
Life, death thoughtless minds filled with deathlessness, sing of the afterlife from the previous life which never was, but always is.
Continually they mate as lovers with passion both for and against, now in love, now in hate.
Blissful joy for bitter pain fills it’s belly and quenches it’s thirst never quite satisfied, always seeking more and less. Blissful joy for bitter pain fills it’s belly and quenches it’s thirst never quite satisfied, always seeking more and less.

Paradox, duality, nonduality
Paradox is both the primal and the final truth. Life, whether we approve of it or not, is like that. Things are dual and so is man’s nature a pairing of negative and positive. But even more is the entire cosmos itself both real and unreal.
“The truest sayings are paradoxical,” declared Lao Tzu, and to prove it wrote a little book which was full of them. The proverb applies as much to the entire universe which science is probing as to the mysterious divinity behind it. What is more, we humans meet at times with the most astonishing situations which exemplify paradox to the full.
Lao Tzu’s Tao Teh Ching is a book of paradoxes. Yet it summarizes the highest wisdom, the Mystery behind the world, life, everything. It is the essence of yin and yang, the principle of polarization, the method of dialectics.
Every individual comes, in time, into possession of that very peace. The answer, so often summed up in one word, is paradox. For this is what sums up the world, life, and man.
