this piece was inspired while research the different aspects of the #9 Lit part extracted from WIKI The chinese culture was the most interesting and inspiring! : Nine (九 pinyin jiǔ
is considered a good number in Chinese culture because it sounds the same as the word "longlasting" (久 pinyin jiǔ
Nine is strongly associated with the Chinese dragon, a symbol of magic and power. There are nine forms of the dragon, it is described in terms of nine attributes, and it has nine children It has 9×13 scales, 9×9 being yang (masculine, or bad influence) and 9×4 being yin (feminine, or good influence).

YIN YANG EXPLANATION! this was the simplest way i found it explained.
This Simbol(Yin-Yang) represents the ancient Chinese understanding of how things work. The outer circle represents "everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called "yin" (black) and "yang" (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other.
