Tai Chi Information

Taiji 太極 is a Chinese cosmological term for the "Supreme Ultimate" state of undifferentiated absolute and infinite potentiality, contrasted with the Wuji 無極 "Without Ultimate". Taiji is best known in the West from the name Taijiquan 太極拳 "Supreme Ultimate Fist".

Chinese taiji 太極 is a compound of tai 太 "great; grand; supreme; extreme; very; too" and ji 極 "ridgepole; roof ridge; highest/utmost point; extreme; earth's pole; reach the end; attain; exhaust". In analogy with the figurative meanings of English pole, Chinese ji 極 "ridgepole" can mean "geographical pole; direction" , "magnetic pole" , or "celestial pole" .

Common English translations of the cosmological Taiji are the "Supreme Ultimate" or "Great Ultimate" ; but other versions are the "Supreme Pole" , "Great Absolute", or "Supreme Polarity" .
