we declare Your Perfection above and beyond all: we have no knowledge whatsoever except what You have taught us. No doubt it is You, and You alone that is all Knowledgeable and all Wise. (al-Baqarah, 32)

Black or White

On a sheet a white paper, a single black spot sticks out even more than a sore thumb. Anybody who looks at that paper is bound to notice it. That's because black and white are polar opposites - the ying and the yang. It's only natural that they don't get along well. A world where black and white are brought together is a harsh one - it is a battlefield! Think reversi, the battle which pits black against white on a single board, with the winning colour devouring the losing one. White can never be black no matter how hard it tries to and the same goes vice versa. Instead, they can only replace one another. White is white, black is black and two opposites can never merge. The only way for black and white to coexist harmoniously by having them both give up their original identity and turn grey.






*Title taken from Michael Jackson's Black or White. Thinking about that song now makes me feel old...
