Not all concepts are defined in a dualistic way. Think of how we differentiate between colors. Its not a "good" or "bad", or a "light" or "dark" dualistic distinction, but a reduction of many, e.g. The color I perceive now is not red or blue or green or purple or orange or pink... I'll call it yellow. Yellow is therefore defined as the color that is not all the other colors. Dualism I think is an unfortunate concept to use sometimes as it gives the impression of either X or not X, which is not the case as shown above.
However, any differentiation is the dualistic process of the left hemisphere of our brain. In a nano second a color has been compared to each other color. "Dualism" is only a label that shouldn't be taken so literally as if all comparison is only between two consciously defined things. We can still be unconscious to how quickly the left brain is comparing one color with one other color during a sequence of defining one color against every other color. The term "dualism" may also consider that the brain is two hemispheres and only one of these is doing comparisons (making distinctions, defining and refining).
