As I was talking the other day with a friend about life and our tendency to view things as either/or, he mentioned that we need to move from opposition to polarity thinking, and presented the following example.
If you think of a piece of paper with 100 at the top and 0 at the bottom, you would tend to think in terms of 0 being the least and 100 being the best. This is opposition thinking. However, if you made the 0 ice and the 100 steam, the element in between would be water. There would no longer be better or worse, because water becomes one or the other depending on temperature. So the steam, the water, and the ice all coexist in a state of equality. They are merely variations within a given polarity, not opposition.
I think this is a good visual example for expanding perception and moving beyond either/or.
