Duality vs Polarity

Polarity is the fourth of only seven Hermetic Principles, which are the foundational laws of nature. “Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.” ~The Kybalion, Polarity: The Fourth Hermetic Principle We make the distinction that duality and polarity are not the same thing.
