Now what's the use of alternating opposites? All ancient cultures were obsessed by duality. Think about Cain and Abel, Yin and Yang, Remus and Romulus, Chaos and Order, Newton and Leibniz, or if your cultural background is quantumphysics: matter and anti-matter. All creation is the product of two counteracting extremities. Joyce knew: If not for human imagination, twins are unbelievably incredible.
