As a Seeker I admit that this thread fascinates me because it's something that has been on my mind a lot.  I was reading another thread the other day about the Great Rite and how sex was used to represent the duality of the Divine and fertility.  I was personally bothered by this because I think that we all have both in us and that duality is too often seen as opposites instead of a pair working together that has qualities the other needs to be complete.  Like a seed in the ground.  Both need each other to accomplish a goal but I don't see them as opposites and yet they are, together, fertile.  Or an idea.  There is the spark of the idea and then the energy to accomplish it.  I don't see those as opposites either.  And physically speaking there is a correspondence in the genitial of the male and female.  When testerone is introduced into a fetus the ovaries become testes, the clitoris becomes a penis.  The only thing there is no correspondence between is the uterus.  So ... I sort of have the idea that both are inside one yet are expressed in different ways.  It's more about how it's expressed instead of there is a lack of.  Does that make sense?  I hope so but I admit that my ideas are still forming.  Does anyone else see that duality is necessary but interchangable?  I really like what Darkhawk said about the ying-yang and how there is a spot of the other on each one.  That sort of plays into my own thinking process.
