Taiji (chinês tradicional: 太極, chinês simplificado: 太极, literalmente ‘grande polo’) é um termo cosmológico chinês para o estado "final supremo" do potencial absoluto e infinito indiferenciado, a unicidade antes da dualidade, a partir do qual Yin e Yang se originam, em contraste com o Wuji.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15]
