I am concerned with the play of opposites: opposites which are not conflicting or competing, but complementary and necessary parts of a whole. I believe in the simultaneous co-existence of opposites. This idea has persisted for so long and has been perpetuated by so many civilizations that it is the closest thing to a "truth" I know. Lao Tzu, Marx, Freud, Levi-Strauss, and the majority of Saharan African cultures all incorporated this concept into their beliefs.
