Dualism is like theological primary school.
It is simplistic and provisional.
If you think about it not all things are dual.
Some things are 1s, some things are 2s, some things are 3s, some things are 5s etc..
For example 5 is considered the human number because there are 5 fingers, 5 toes, 5 limbs, 5 senses.
So to reduce everything to dualism, especially when we are talking about God, is ridiculous.
God is all numbers at once.
God is holistic.
That is He is all things and more in one.
But to say that God is transcendent does not mean that God is a combination of the pairs of opposites.
God is beyond dualism.
