Tài jí 太极

tài 太 – the biggest (big, bigger, biggest)
jí 极 – extreme, pole

Taiji (Tai Chi) is the principle of yin and yang ( ☯ ). It describes an observation, that everything that is has a polarity of opposites within. For instance, our planet always has one side where there is day and another where there is night.

Important to understand here is that this polarity exists at the same time.
