Pattern of Opposition Group

~P = o(P) = e(P)

All the forms of opposition are in agreement for these symbols.  As such, these two pairs of symbols provide canonical examples of the idea of opposition.

Coherent, equal groups of yin and yang in stable balance.
Coherent, equal groups of yin and yang which are unstably balanced.
Equal amounts of yin and yang, uniformly dispersed and resonating in harmony.
Equal amounts of yin and yang, uniformly dispersed but in disharmony.

This group is composed of two clusters:

This set of four symbols can be seen as the intersection of the following sets:

Also, the lattice closure of ~P = o(P) = e(P) is:

The first of these two pairs show contrasts maximally separated in the symbol. As such, these are in the lowest non-zero set for internal energy boundaries: b() = b() = 1.

The second of these two pairs show contrasts maximally dispersed in the symbol. So, these two symbols have the highest internal energy boundaries: b() = b() = 5.
