opposites vs complement

Hi Lama,

Very cool!

Actually some of these are opposites because they don't oppose each other.

Even in true daoism, yin and yang have never been seen as opposites because they don't oppose each other. They complement each other to make a whole.

A male and female complement each other.

"In many different fields, the complement of X is something that together with X makes a complete whole, something that supplies what X lacks."

Love and Fear do not complement each other and oppose each other so they are opposites.

Light and Dark, Yin and Yang are not direct comparisons to love and hate. Even thought this is the typical analysis.
