Lévi- Strauss believed that the human mind thinks fundamentally in these binary oppositions and that these are what make meaning possible. He considered the job of a myth to be an association of binary opposition with a reconcilable binary opposition, creating the illusion, that the former had been resolved.

These binary opposites create a plot for a film, for example, a hero and a villain (good and evil) creates a storyline where the hero attempts to defeat the villain.  Binary opposites have been said to create a ‘balance’ in the world. For example, if there were no evil in a horror film, there wouldn’t be a horror storyline.
