For the longest time, PM has wondered why tension of opposites predominate the world.
It has always bothered me why it always have to be the case, why things almost always have to be hard because a choice to be made – hard ones – is certainly involved, like if you want to have this, you have to loose that; if this is where you want to go, you can’t go here. The last thing that can really make it difficult is not really the indecisiveness – it is the decisiveness.
But now I think I’ve realized the answer. The tension of opposites exists to maintain a balance in our lives. We cannot really have it all because if that was the case we would not be able to appreciate anything, and if we try to take it all, at the end of the day, we would end up with nothing.
It is actually a self-preservation mechanism of life. No matter how ridiculous it seems, it actually keeps us sane.
