Yin and Yang Hidden Meanings

The Hidden Meanings of 
Yin & Yang

John Bellaimey
TED-Ed - Aug 2, 2013

The ubiquitous yin-yang symbol holds its roots in Taoism/Daoism, a Chinese religion and philosophy.

The Yin, the dark swirl, is associated with shadows, femininity, and the trough of a wave.

The Yang, the light swirl, represents brightness, passion and growth.

John Bellaimey explains why we all contain the spirit of yin and of yang - and how we can achieve a balance of both in our lives.

 The Death of Bees Explained
Parasites, Poison and Humans
In 2015 the bees are still dying in masses. Which at first seems not very important until you realize that one third of all food humans consume would disappear with them. Millions could starve. The foes bees face are truly horrifying – some are a direct consequence of human greed. We need to help our small buzzing friends or we will face extremely unpleasant consequences.
