On my Weebly Stats today, I found a person had searched Google with this question, leading them to this site. I thought, "That's a very interesting question," and decided to Blog on it.
Yin and Yang, the balance of nature in traditional terms, comes from the East when the culture over there - where the sun rises - was devoted to the art and passion of the natural world rather than consumption of it. As polarities, which is what Yin and Yang symbolise, they must have deep roots in the universal order and therefore must relate to us, and everything else, in an esoteric way.
Particles are stuffed with polarities, juxtapositions and irrationalities. They have positive or negative charge, if they are charged at all, along with spin, having any number of permutations, and world line - the amount of time they spend in existence. Some particles are very long-lived, like the electron, while others like the Higgs boson are fleeting in appearance before vanishing back into the ether.
This makes the question asked by that person unknown a very good question indeed. Maybe answering that question using the terms of reference Yin and Yang propose would be a useful exercise in determining the deeper level of realism which Dark Matter forces us to consider.
I'd like your thoughts, since I have none, other than the question - what constitutes the character of a particle as viewed in the ways we have forgotten to analyse our reality?
