Limiting oneself to two directions is dualism. Limiting oneself to polar extremes is dualism. Forgetting the gradient in between—dualism.
Dualistic is what everything is from perspective of the self, and the self cannot observe itself.

A dualistic perspective is the only, natural and complete perspective.
