Qinway Qigong link[edit]

I've removed a link that seems to be plain old advertising: I saw a bit of content on the linked site that seemed generally informational (though I can't speak to its real relevance to this page or to the subject of qigong), but it all seemed to be leading you toward signing up for some workshops and/or buying some products. (Any site whose front page has "before" and "after" pictures . . .)

From what I've seen of Wikipedia and read on the help pages, I get the pretty clear impression that this is not the sort of thing that should be here. Apologies if I'm dead wrong.Iralith 22:15, 18 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Is this the best way of expressing this? Yes, there are two elements but Yin-Yang sees them as a harmonious whole rather than two. The point seems to be to learn how to leave the dualistic view behind.

Problem with symbol[edit]

The symbol used as of today is incorrect. The proper Yin Yang symbol contains a dot of black in the white section and a dot of black in the white section. It represents that each side also contains the opposite of itself (non-duality) - this is a vital aspect of Yin and Yang. I have no idea how to change the photo, but it’s important that it be corrected. Sareyberry (talk) 04:40, 20 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've restored the original image. No upload required, it was already in commons. Checking the edit history though, it looks like people have been vandalizing the logo for years. 2606:6000:4FC0:11:45F1:5DCF:DDA4:B02B (talk) 06:36, 13 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

connection with Klein Bottle[edit]

Yin and Yang symbol is a "flat" repesentation of a continuous flow ou change, maybe better described by the Klein bottle? 2804:7F0:BA00:EC29:1ECC:D6FF:FEBA:4F02 (talk) 15:17, 20 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unless reliable sources have likened the symbol to a Klein bottle, it won't be described as such in the article. See WP:OR. Largoplazo (talk) 15:29, 20 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
