Origin[edit]

When and where did the East Asian Taijitu originate from? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.105.21.201 (talk) 13:00, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

It comes from Chinese culture! Chinese culture is 5000 years old and maybe not comprehended by Western mind. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:C5F7:EB00:7C02:3760:51CC:D764 (talk) 04:01, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Symmetry[edit]

This article refers to the yin-yang symbol as symmetrical. However, for an image to be symmetrical, it has to consist of two halves that are mirror images of each other. The yin-yang symbol is made up of two halves that are 180 degree rotations of each other, not mirror images. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.164.128.78 (talk) 06:36, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

See Rotational symmetry. --Thnidu (talk) 04:01, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Why include the foreigner's things?[edit]

The taiji concept is Chinese origin, from the well-spring of ancient knowledge. Please don't pollute the concept with the foreign things, especially from those time of Western had no culture, only the caveman things. You should think long and hard to respect Chinese culture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:C5F7:EB00:7C02:3760:51CC:D764 (talk) 04:04, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Learn something about respect, yourself, before you post again. --Thnidu (talk) 04:04, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Why paragraph on taijitu in Trypillian culture removed?[edit]

If mentions of similar symbols among Celts and Romans are present, why is mentions of Trypillian culture removed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.36.43.201 (talk) 12:08, 18 July 2013 (UTC) I added informations on this subject again. Examples are easly visible on photos from articles in references. 178.36.43.201 (talk) 12:30, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
