     When we choose one out of a pair of opposites, which we often do, we are doing a preposterous thing. Imagine inviting the husband alone and leaving the wife out (or the other way round). Won't we consider that to be preposterous?

    Yet we do this kind of choosing (which actually a heartless choice) all the time; separating the day from the night, the beginning from the end, the light from the dark, happiness from sorrow.

    The list is endless.

    Deciding not to separate the pair of oppsites is really a wise way of choosing.

    Try it just for fun. It is not preposterous at all.
