In Chinese language, ‘mao dun’ 矛盾 means contradiction. Mao Dun is made up of two Chinese language characters to form a noun, or it can be a verb. The first character means spear, and the second one means shield. If someone with the best spear attacks the other one who has the best shield, then we may have ended up with an unresolved fight. Often in life, we use only either the ‘spear’ or the ‘shield’ to think and to do things depending which one is more convenient in achieving our goal(s). By this habit of thought, we relentlessly pursue efficiency, development, and innovation etc. Are these the sole meaning of our living, surviving, and life? Efficiency has brought us more working hours and not the time to enjoy the family time and bonding, development has brought us many destructions rather than the building of Eden on Earth, innovation and creativity have brought us the dependency of human on technology and not about being independence in our thought as well as in our living. Maodun World WordPress wants to convey a message to people that contradictions or ‘mao dun’ are part of our life, and we should breath in a new spirit into our thoughts and living that contradiction is a co-operative force rather than an opposing force.
