Two Chinese words :
– yáng 陽 «south face» of mountains and hills in the north hemisphere
– yīn 陰 «north face»
The use of these two words is typical of what is a metaphor.
A metaphor is the use of words for something physical – a mountain with light and darkness – to « give an idea » of :
– hot and cold, dry and wet
– expressor, receptor
– masculinity & femininity
– order and disorder
– expanding and contracting
The complete picture is used to illustrate simultaneous unity and duality, opposite forces, etc.

Whether it is a broader view on the metaphor or on the yin yang the corresponding knowledge and academic references have been lost.
