Then, if we look at it from another point of view, we shall see that duality is in fact nothing but unity, in other words that two is one; and the most interesting point in this is that as soon as we see two, each of the two at once takes a different and particular position in our view. This is clear with man and woman, but also our right hand and our left hand each shows a particular power and a particular function, and the right foot and the left foot each has its peculiar place in life. The right foot is distinctly different from the left foot, and also the sight of the two eyes is not the same. One eye is always better and stronger than the other, or at least different from the other, and if there were no difference the eyes would not be a proper instrument for seeing. If there were no difference between the power and strength of man's left side and his right side, he could not live.
