Notes

"Wuji is the undifferentiated timelessness which, in the Taijitu Shuo (a traditional Taoist diagram) is represented by an empty circle. In Taoist cosmology, Wuji refers to a state of non-distinction prior to the differentiation into the Yin and Yang that give birth to the ten-thousand-things-- all the phenomena of the manifest world, with their various qualities and behaviors."[1]

"Taiji refers to Tao-in-motion. Taiji represents the spark of movement--the emergence, oscillation or vibratory modulation which allows the defined “something” of manifestation to be born of the infinite “no-thing” of Wuji."[2]
