The Balance

             I have always wondered to myself, as I am sure all of you have done at least once.  Where did we come from?  Why are we here?  Is there a God?  Well I don't have the answers.  What I do have is an opinion.  As a child I went to a catholic sunday school.  I also went to pretty much every christian denomination church that I could think of, including mormons.  I never felt like I was being told the truth.  I always felt that I could never have such blind faith in something I could not see, or have some sort of proof.  So in my teen years I always struggled to find what I really believe in.  I had decided for a long while that I was atheist.  I really was always into science.  So I was always down with the whole "Darwin- Evolution", and  "The Big Bang Theory".  One day I was watching a documentary on the science channel about the "Large Hadron Collider".  One of the scientist was talking about how they were smashing atoms to see the smallest length of measure known to man. From what I recall basically it was a group of positive and negative charges.  BAMMM!  It was all clear to me. Everything on earth is made with atoms.  You, me, your pet, house's, car's, food, ect...  The atom is basically the smallest building block known to man.  Then I started trying to reason my new found thought.  I immediately thought of the chinese symbol for "yin/yang" .  The Chinese culture is one of the oldest in the world, and their whole philosophy of life is based on this symbol.  Yin/Yang basically means dark/light, evil/good, cold/heat, female/male, death/life, and negative/positive. Then I thought of computers, and binary code specifically.  Binary code basically is a series of  of zero's and one's.  Negative/Positive, minus/plus. They can take almost anything, music, pictures, movies, games, virtual worlds, and turn it into data.  Data is made of a  series or string of series of zero's and one's.  The more I think about it the more things I find to validate this.  So everything that we have come to know with science, explains our world is made up of positive and negative charges.  Some people believe in karma, which is pretty much the same thing.  So this brings me back to Yin/Yang.  The real meaning of Yin/Yang is "the perfect balance".  Our world as we know it is made up of trillions of trillions of positive and negative charges that found the perfect balance.  So I still don't have all the answers, and I still don't know why we are here.  However; I do have something to believe in, and now I know what I am.  I can  a cluster of Atom's trying to find  "THE BALANCE"
