Also consider the lower section of the graphic to be an 'abbreviated' cross-section of the top, but rotated through 90°. And, if it wasn't obvious, the small black and white circles are to be dismissed from your thoughts.
Consider a cylinder having the two major halves of the Yin-yang symbol as the profile of two moulded pieces of differently coloured woods.|
Allow one of these pieces to be obliquely cut from A to B as in the illustration.
What percentage by volume of the whole cylinder do each of these two parts represent?
The lower part of the illustration attempts to portray a receding void on the left and having cylindrical dimensions against a similar protuberance on the right, and of the same scale.
