Here are some example's of a portrayed duality within the bible.

Book Of Ecclesiastes
Section-3

3:1-To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

3:2-A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.

3:3-A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up.

3:4-A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

3:5-A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.

3:6-A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away.

3:7-A time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak.

3:8-A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, a time of peace.

For example, (3:8) Love and Hate are a duality, yet War and Peace are the duality of the duality of Love and Hate, this also can be seen within the other verses.

So, even in the past it has been known to some, of the duality of the world around them, yet how far can this duality system go? What can it apply to and what can it not apply to? Is it the active them within are existence?

@No0ne,
I think duality here can apply to how everything has opposites. And how they are both intrinsic features of the universe, not just applications of perception.

@Holiday20310401,
I don't think the Bible, or even Ecclesiastes, promotes a dualistic systematizing of reality.

@Didymos Thomas,
Hi Ya'll!!Smile

:)If everything in essence is energy, as modern science tells us it is, how can there be in fact opposites. We in fact have as orgainisms, a relational experience of energy, it is that relation which determines our experience of it. Of course there is no reason one would find this understanding in the bible, for the bible expresses the understanding of its own time. Eden seems to be the acception in the bible, this is non-duality, the sin of Adam it would seem was to break with this wholelistic view, and suddenly Adam becomes conscious---------consciousness, the blessing and the curse.

Looks like a thirty-ality rather than a du-ality.

The biggest examples of duality in Christianity are good and evil, God and the Devil. One should live beyond both.

To understand to not understand.

Duality, need's a new word.... the old one dosnt relate well to the new concept.

"Dualism Duality Of Realality" work's well.

The story of Adam and Eve is very much a warning against dualism, but this is not presented when Adam becomes conscious. This warning against duality is presented when God kicks Adam and Eve out of paradise - Adam and Eve eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and as a result they cannot stay in paradise.

If you embrace dualism, you've lost the figurative paradise.

For such be tru, so to shall the oppisite be true.

For thats the same method or "Logic" that is used within the "Book Of Ecclesiastes".

Yet the main question is, is it a fact that if one thing, function, charaistic, exists at one point of time, the oppisite will have to exist at one point of time.

For example,

A person unknowingly makes somthing that gives you a headach.
A person knowingly makes somthing that takes away your headach.

So can it be proven that every thing, every function, every chararistic that exists at some point of time will have a oppisite that will exist at some point of time, due to the fact that its oppisite has existed at some point of time.

And if such is true, then such would be a governing law of this existence, the same as any law of physics, would it not?

Lets be honest change dualism with "contradiction"
GenesisĀ 1:11-12 andĀ 1:26-27 Trees came before Adam.

Genesis 2:4-9 Trees came after Adam......and such many "dualisms"
