DUALITY

There is something beautiful, powerful, and edifying about duality. On a macro level, there is beauty in contrast, in the point of intersection between opposing forces. The beauty of dawn, the wonder of dusk: there is balance in the meeting of light and dark, yin and yang.

On a micro level, there is beauty in having a partner–profound beauty. There is beauty in having someone who cares for your life as much as they care for their own life. Such partnerships yield invaluable growth: emotionally, socially and developmentally.

Little personifies the power of duality better than twins. Twins possess a unique opportunity for honest introspection and guidance, sans ego.  One buttresses the other, and in doing so builds up himself.

Moreover, twins represent the ability for each of us to truly empathize with another on a higher plane. Though physically separate, twins often share the unique ability to feel each other in ways that seem foreign to others.  Twins provide valuable insight into the path towards a larger, empathic civilization.

At every juncture, LFANT is a tale of duality and of partnership.

There is an invaluable lesson to be learned here: though separate entities physically, we are all deeply connected to those around us. We are all an extension of another. We will build together, or fall alone. There is no middle ground.
