Ah, but I spend my life explaining God to mammon and mammon to God.
Likewise with liberals and conservatives, salesfolks and geeks, parents
and children, chickens and eggs, and even Taoists and non-Taoists.

is round, though, and the universe is a hypersurface whose circumference
is everywhere and its center nowhere.

Or consider Escher's "Drawing Hands":
Or even more simply: U+262F.

"Two are one, life and death, lying/Like lovers together in _kemmer_/
Like hands joined together/the end and the Way."
