That's the thing, it isn't a "stalemate" because it isn't a fight.
Let's look at it this way. Here is a metaphor, In binary there is 0 and 1, 0 would represent "OFF" and 1 would represent "ON". There seems to be a
battle, either a particular space is "ON" or "OFF", there is either a 1 or a 0 in a particular space. Even though this makes it seem like there is a
"battle", there really isn't because they are arranged to create a Bigger Picture. Therefore, there is no stalemate or victory.
If I wanted to write the word "Cycle" in Binary, it would require the "one" and the "zero", the "order" and the "chaos", but the chaos - the zero -
the emptiness itself is being used to create an even bigger order (the formation of the word "Cycle").
Here is another way to look at it. A white piece of paper represents "chaos", and the lines that you draw to make a picture represents "order", even
though some may look at the picture and say "who's winning" and seeing if there is more "chaos" (blankness) or "order" (lines making up the picture),
it's the chaos (blankness) AND the order (lines) that makes up a perfect, complete order (the entire picture).
