When more On becomes Off

The other day, after a conversation with Amanda, I had a little thought. If one is on the rooftop and one begins sliding, one is sliding on the roof. If one continues to slide on the roof one will end up sliding off the roof. ‘On’ and ‘off’ are supposed to be opposites. But here is an example of one thing continuing becomes the opposite of what it is.

So curious.

    There is an old chinese saying " Things goes to extreme must end up in the opposite side". 物极必反。In Ying-Yang theory, extreme yang will have ying features(such as soft, abosobing), and extreme ying will have yang features (such as hard, sharp). In chinese medicine, there are similiar theories.
