The Balance


A white-and-black room was once someone’s home. Years passed, and nature took a new course: a birch tree grew into a ladder, connecting the two opposite worlds, ever changing directions, constantly taking over each other. Life is a battlefield for survival. Man is powerless against most natural disasters. Nature is powerless against man-made destruction. However, in the end, nature does seem to outlive the mortal man. Our universe is an intelligent and interconnected organism that interacts with us in the most unexpected and humbling ways. The yin-yang symbol 69 symbolizes the polarity. Superimposing the “6” and the “9” produces the image of the “8,” reflecting totality and infinity—the structure and the heart of the universe. At its very center is where positive/negative, above/below, feminine/masculine, yin/yang, and creator/creation cross.
