Moving Beyond the World of Duality

The idea of dualities is a common theme in many religious or spiritual traditions, reflecting the human experience. It can be said that this world is composed of opposing forces that create balance and contrast. The notions of good and evil, yin and yang, are prevalent in a variety of cultural contexts.

While these dualities can help us better understand the world and ourselves, it is important to note that they are often simplified concepts and can be fluid rather than fixed. The human experience is multifaceted, and individuals often navigate a spectrum of experiences that may not neatly fit into these binary categories.

In the academic realm, the use of clear-cut definitions of study fields can serve as a framework for understanding complex concepts. However, it is also crucial to cultivate a nuanced and critical perspective that recognizes the limitations of these dichotomies. Ultimately, embracing the interconnectedness of all facets of existence can lead to a richer understanding of the world and promote a more integrated approach to knowledge and wisdom. 

Thus, it’s important to transdisciplinarily expand every facet of any academic field of study. By recognizing and appreciating the interconnectedness of seemingly opposing or different forces or ideas, we can strive for harmony and unity in a world that often seems divided.

 Interestingly enough, it’s said that astrologically we are shifting from the “Age of Earth” to the “Age of Wind”. The “Age of Wind” will represent the world beyond boundaries, as Aquarius (water flowing boundlessly) will dominate philanthropy. The “Age of Earth” has represented the world of duality for past 240 years, as Pisces (two fish swimming in opposite directions) has dominated it. We’re now moving beyond it by exploring and merging different aspects that take us into the world of wholeness — That is being the world of transdisciplinarity.
