TAO generates ONE (origin)
ONE (origin) generates TWO (poles)
Tao comes before the ONE origin of universe which gives rise to TWO polarities of feminine(yin) and masculine(yang) or negative and positive.
TWO (poles) generate THREE (capacities)
The masculine gives rise to heaven and the feminine gives rise to earth. The masculine also gives rise to man and the feminine to woman; the two together make up mankind.
THREE (capacities) generate TEN THOUSAND things.
The THREE capacities of HEAVEN, EARTH and MAN
give rise to ALL existence in the universe.
ALL is depicted with the pictogram of TEN THOUSAND which is the drawing of a scorpion with infinite reproduction capacity. All existence is actually the two characters of “Ten Thousand” “Things” (See the pictogram of “Thing” which is actually made up of a drawing of cow and bird.)
Peace is blending TWO polarities into ONE and balancing the THREE capacities of Heaven, Earth and Man in harmony giving rise to the infinite.
ONE,TWO,THREE ! Freeasy Peace!
