The logic of YinYang and the science of TCM: An eastern road to the unification of nature, agents and medicine
by Wen-Ran Zhang
International Journal of Functional Informatics and Personalised Medicine (IJFIPM), Vol. 2, No. 3, 2009

Abstract: Many wonder whether Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is science; many TCM practitioners are eager to fit TCM into western medicine for acceptance; some TCM scholars suggested to abandon YinYang in favour of western tradition; some researchers suggested to avoid relativistic and quantum theories in TCM research in favour of established scientific theories. Faced with these tough choices, this paper unveils the salient nature of YinYang related to Greek philosophy and identifies its critical role in logic, TCM, and modern science. Surprisingly, it is shown that YinYang bipolar relativity has opened an eastern road toward quantum gravity – Einstein's unfinished scientific unification of general relativity and quantum mechanics. Furthermore, it is shown that not only does YinYang bipolar quantum gravity constitute a physical theory but also a mental, logical, social, and biological quantum theory.
