Duality, Polarity, and the False Dilemma Fallacy

“A false dilemma (also called false dichotomy, false binary, black-and-white thinking, bifurcation, denying a conjunct, the either–or fallacy, fallacy of exhaustive hypotheses, fallacy of the excluded middle, the fallacy of false choice, or the fallacy of the false alternative) is a type of informal fallacy that involves a situation in which only limited alternatives are considered, when in fact there is at least one additional option. The opposite of this fallacy is argument to moderation.”  ~Wikipedia

spiritual_dualityfalse dilemma is indeed a duality, but not because the two should be one, but because an alternative option is left out and hasn’t been considered.  People often make the mistake of confusing a polarity and a duality, because they both contain two things, but a duality is oppositional, whereas a polarity is co-creative.  Polarity is one of the seven hermetic principles
