A lot of people get caught up in the argument of moral relativism (that is, shades of grey about what is right or wrong) versus moral absolutism (you always know clearly what is right and wrong).
If we look at the energetics of a situation (which is a good process to simplify complicated issues), you can see how both positions are justified.
And it’s not just about morality. You can apply this to any polarity you care to name: day and night, male and female, hot and cold, large and small, ad infinitum
Starting off with the pure qualities – say good and evil, for example. You start off with the pure dichotomies, but then, other factors start to come in. Life starts getting complicated.
Consider a binary system, like 1 and 0. More 1’s and 0’s are added to the mix as the system progresses, so that soon there are entire strings of different combinations of 1’s and 0’s.
This is how life is. By the third iteration, you start getting a lot of “it depends” kind of factors, when relating it back to the two original polarities. There is a lot of mixture of both elements, which gets exponentially more complex with each evolution.
So while the original polarity might start off as, say black or white, most of life is, in fact, shades of grey.
The left brain likes things to be clear cut and “black and white.”
The right brain is comfortable with complexity and shades of grey. It can, however, discern the predominant element within a mix.
Note which you allow to lead.
