Know the Opposite

How would we know how good something is or even what it actually is. We see it, smell it, feel it, listen to it, read it, study it, observe it. Live it. Sometimes these aren't enough. We need more clarity. We then compare. Compare and it becomes known. Almost. We may have after all compared two un-comparables.

In such situations, why does my mind  like to think that we need to look at the opposite of it. Know the opposite of something to understand it better.

PS:
-Moot question - unless we know what it is, how do we know what its opposite is?
 - Does everything have its opposite?
- Is man a woman's opposite. Or vice versa?

man and woman are opposite only in gender but not in everything. Eg: Except for few parts most of the body parts are the same...Agree?

Without darkness you wouldn't know the value of light and vice versa. Same thing with men and women :D
