    Abstract I reconsider the natural characterization of change and non-change that arises from the algebraic approach: this sees change as yang in contrast to nonchange, which is yin. Following a persuasive example from Alain Stalder, rather than consider change solely in contrast to non-change, I develop a formal characterization of different forms of change considered relative to each other. This extension allows the internal structure of a change to be made explicit in a new way, bifurcating the change into yang parts and yin parts. I call this extended definition of change bipolar change.
