- Yin and Yang
- The Five Elements
These concepts permeate Chinese philosophy and medical theory and form the foundation for the whole of Traditional Chinese (& East Asian) Medicine.

- Eastern Philosophy: a statement can be true, false, both, or somewhere in between. Every false statement has an element of truth, and vice versa.
