I'm usually black and white
I'm not a Zebra, but perhaps a Panda is named after part of me
I'm always perfectly in harmony
Because that is what I say
I consist of two parts, and two times three lines is what I start with
I might be on your arm or leg, hand or foot, but at the same time I'm all around the universe
I consist of two times 2, a 6 and the final number of a different base
I'm like your left heart and right liver, one in down and the other up out
The easy one to find is made by G. Maxwell

What am I? (The answer is probably pretty easy, but please give why for each of the lines.)


Tim Couwelier has the correct answer, but who knows the last line:

I consist of two times 2, a 6 and the final number of a different base

Hint(s):

I consist of two times 2, a 6 and the final letter of a different base
, and in addition I usually also consists of you

It doesn't have anything to do with the shape of the Yin Yang symbol

You are:

The Yin Yang symbol

I'm usually black and white

It's typically displayed in black and white

I'm not a Zebra, but perhaps a Panda is named after part of me

The Yang Yang panda

I'm always perfectly in harmony Because that is what I say

The symbol symbolizes harmony

I consist of two parts, and two times three lines is what I start with

Refers to the starting letters Y (which consist of three lines) - credit to Aleeeeee

I might be on your arm or leg, hand or foot, but at the same time I'm all around the universe

Reference to tattoo's - it's a common tattoo theme / they are also linked with 'Moon' and 'Sun' (for the universe part)

I consist of two times 2, a 6 and the final number of a different base

Unicode U+262F is the yin yang symbol: ☯

I'm like your left heart and right liver, one in down and the other up out

It appears (source: Wikipedia) that 'left heart' is 'yang' and 'right lever' is 'yin'.

The easy one to find is made by G. Maxwell

    $\begingroup$ +1 Most correct, not all though. "I consist of two lines..."; "I consist of two times 2..." and "I'm like your left heart..." are incorrect. The one with Panda is incorrect as well, but your answer is a lot better. ;) I didn't even knew a Yang Yang Panda existed tbh, I was merely referencing to Yin and Yang both being pretty popular names in China and Pandas are Chinese. (PS: As for the "I'm like your left heart..." it isn't completely wrong, but the answer I was looking for comes from a different source. In this case, the last one (with "G. Maxwell") can be used as hint.) $\endgroup$ – Kevin Cruijssen Apr 6 '16 at 12:30

    $\begingroup$ I consist of two parts, and two times three lines is what I start with refers to the letter Y, composed by 3 lines at the beginning of both the words $\endgroup$ – Alessandro Apr 6 '16 at 12:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Aleeeeee Correct, two more to go. :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin Cruijssen Apr 6 '16 at 13:47
  • $\begingroup$ Tweaked the organ one, and the two times three lines. Should be just the 'two times 2...' one remaining. $\endgroup$ – Tim Couwelier Apr 6 '16 at 15:00
