Allies or Adversaries?
It’s not really an either/or…
Survival plus our personal beliefs continue to present to us the universe as a dualistic choice when it reaches our conscious awareness.
The mind sees in terms of opposites: i.e., black ~ white, good ~ bad, yes ~ no, yin ~ yang, right ~ left, friend ~ foe.
The brain sees “lukewarm”, “grey”, “maybe”; it also sees inclusive patterns and especially new choices.
