Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I thought the idea of the ancient eastern religions was that unity was fragmented by "seeming" opposites, hence yin and yang are coiled round each other and each has an "eye" which is the other.

...whereas although there is the claim in the One God religions that the One God is superior in all aspects to everything else (Creator of All), on analysis their thinking--and logic--is of the In/Out variety.  You are chosen, or you're not.  You go to heaven, or you go to hell.  Once the mystics (sufis etc.) get involved this all falls apart, as it does when one examines the concepts, hence the position of the heretic...or sommat.

I think I'm at that Wittgenstien moment...
