Well put. It's for those reasons that Joker's lines like "You complete me" and "I think you and I are destined to do this forever" have such deep meaning and resonance because they are a ying/yang relationship.

It's like black vs white. Order vs chaos. Even the comics touched on that;

"Sometimes I remember it one way. Sometimes another. If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!"
