This is a diagram, designed for the precise purpose of responding to what was asked in the opening post.

Now that's a "cool-looking" diagram. Can anyone here translate the Chinese text, though, please? It could be a list of rice dish recipes for all know. I'm rather woefully ignorant about philosophical Taoism, except that there's obviously something about an interplay of opposites "in the Tao". Maybe it's an aesthetic system; people mention "harmony" a lot when they cite Taoism. Perhaps someone knowledgeable should start a "philosophy of Taoism" thread.
