Mr Yang and Mr Yin



Mr Yang is white. Mr Yin is black.
Mr Yang come from the sky and goes toward earth. Mr Yin come from earth, heading toward the sky.
Mr Yang come from everywhere to go to a point. Mr Yin come from a corner and goes everywhere.
Mr Yang is introverted while Mr Yin is open to the world.
Mr Yang always knows where he goes. When he leaves from point A, he always find his way to point B. Mr Yin, often get lost. When he leaves point A, he never knows if he will ever get to point B.
Mr Yang is a determined man who can sometime become stubborn. Mr Yin is an open minded man, full of uncertainties. 
Mr Yang rushes right to the goal. Mr Yin is often distracted by what surrounds him.
Mr Yang swims upstream. Mr Yin goes downstream. 
Mr Yang is orderly. Mr yin is not.
Mr Yang is often ahead with the winners, while Mr Yin is often left behind.
Mr Yang knows what is important. Mr Yin doesn't care about what is important.
Mr Yang would love to dominate the world. Mr Yin would prefer to embrace the world. 
Mr Yang will only rely upon himself, while Mr Yin will often ask for help.
Mr Yang goes to the point. Mr Yin is quite absorbed by details.
Mr Yang can be quite obtuse. Mr Yin is quite aware of his surrounding.
Mr Yang is aware of himself, while Mr Yin is not.
Mr Yang tend to become angry quite easily. Mr Yin will slip into fear a bit to often.
Anything else?
I like them both.

Purity



What is purity? On the concrete side, the dictionary gives this definition: Consisted of itself only, unmixed (Harrap's Chamber 2005). It gives several other definitions which I won't mention all, but this one : freedom from contamination, pollution or unwholesome or intrusive elements.

If we take the first definition, there isn't any pure element in wilderness. It's all mixed up matters. Even precious metal or gemstones need to be treated artificially to become pure. Which mean that we only find purity  in treated things. 

Paradoxically, nature itself is considered a pure beauty when untouched by man, hence we see the second definition. A nature free from pollution, contamination and so on. 

what about the spiritual purity? Still according to the dictionary, it is chasteness or innocence (same dictionary as above). The French dictionary add : devoid of all darkness. 
Besides small children you will hardly find a pure human being. Jesus was, some will argue. But the bible, who attest it, is and was throughout history (by the Gnostic, the Orthodox, the Catharses, the protestants, etc.) contested for its validity, some accusing it to be just a bunch of propaganda. Jesus as been reduced to be a married man with children (why not? I like this idea, makes him more human to me, more accessible). 
Buddha, another pure man actually preached the middle way, between good and evil. There are many others and I cannot discuss about them all.
 We simply cannot be pure, because we are all made of light and shadow, whether we like it or not.

That being said, I think there is actually a way of becoming pure. First we have to acknowledge our dark side and once we do, we don't need to freak out about it. We also look at our positive side. Then, we merge them together to create a spiritual unity. This is a stage that will lead us to enlightenment. Once there, we can say, we are pure. The dark side cannot reach us, not because we resist it, but because we don't care about it. When it strikes us, we let it soak us, then we let it go.

Against G.M.Os

I think there is a simple way of ridding the world from g.m.o. Their should be a law saying that all those who support genetically modified organisms, in a direct or even in indirect manner, should prove their faith into it by eating g.m.o every day, during breakfast, lunch and dinner for at least a year. They would be medically checked to see the effect on their body.
And if they refuse, then they should be prosecuted for crime against humanity. Because that means, they know how harmful g.m.o can be, yet they still promote it, slowly poisoning the people to death.
