If Good and Evil are the 2 sides of the same coin, what would the coin be called?

OK Cass, I read it all.
My summary is that Good and Evil are the two sides of the same coin.
I prefer to just use the term Karma, and not use the terms
good and Evil.
For once one labels the other guy, religion, politician, etc, Evil, then where is
there to go. One does not compromise with Evil.
If good and evil are the two sides of the same coin, what would
the entire coin be called, taken in its totality.

THE NECESSITY OF THE CONTRARIES(1)
In fact, there is neither light nor darkness in the realm of truth. Absolute light is absolute darkness, and vice versa.
P. BLAVATSKYEVIL is but an antagonizing blind force in nature; it is
reaction, opposition, and contrast --evil for some, good for others.
Good and Evil are twins, the progeny of Space and Time, under the sway
of Maya. Separate them, by cutting off one from the other, and they
will both die. Neither exists per se, since each has to be generated
and created out of the other, in order to come into being; both must be
known and appreciated before becoming objects of perception, hence, in
mortal mind, they must be divided. Were it light alone, inactive and
absolute, the human mind could not appreciate nor even realize it.
Shadow is that which enables light to manifest itself, and gives it
objective reality. Therefore, shadow is not evil, but is the necessary
and indispensable corollary which completes Light or Good: it is its
creator on Earth
