Why is the world full of duality?

On a beautiful afternoon in Summer 2016, HappyGreenPanda (HGP) read a simplified story about the adventure of Robinson Crusoe to Little Prince [1].

Mommy: "Why is there a bad weather?"
HGP: "So that you can cherish a good weather."
Mommy: "Why are there bad guys"
HGP: "So that you can appreciate good guys."

On a positive note, Kavita Ramdas highlighted that "We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free."

First the contradictions may be confusing, but think of natural phenomena, such as wave-particle duality.

Many times, it is not only about the two extremes, but also the presence of the spectrum of quality. For example, there are times when bad guys act nicely, and vice versa. We just pray that we encounter people when they act nicely.
