The doctrine of yin (negative) and yang (positive) is a summarization of the opposition of all things. Neijing - Yin Yang Ying Xiang Da Lun (Canon of Internal Medicine - On Conclusions of Correspondence of Yin and Yang) says, " Yin—yang is the law of the universe, the principle governing all things, the parents of changes, and the origin of life and death" . Generally speaking, all that are hyperfunctional, exciting, hot, dynamic, strong, bright, invisible, light, upward, outward, clear and the like, belong to yang (positive). On the contrary, all that are waning, restraining, cold, static, weak, turbid, and the like, belong to yin (negative). The same opposition exists in Heaven and Earth, sun and moon, day and night, hotness and coldness, male and female, superior and inferior, outside and inside, motion and rest, fire and water,exhale and inhale, and excess and deficiency. So all things of the natural world containing two opposite components can be divided into yin and yang.
