I have been thinking on this for long enough and I feel it is time to once again share my concepts and ideals with the readers of ATS.
The Nullification of Good and Evil.
Many things come to mind as soon as someone says the word good, as the same goes for the word evil. When the word good is said in the sence of "what
this person did was good, or a good thing," there is a positive connotation instantly. It isn't just a small little positivity, the word good
carries with it a powerful connotation. One so powerful, it can change your emotions, feed your ego.
The same thing goes for the word evil. It carries with it a powerful negative connotation. Relating to the most horrible of horrible things or people.
What this does mentally is automatically create two categories to place yourself in. You can do things that are good in the eyes of society as a
whole, or you can do things that are evil in the eyes of society as a whole.
Coming around to my big point, who decides what things are evil and what things are good?
For instance, one may say killing another human is an evil thing. Yet people claim to kill in the name of "goodness". Fighting wars to "defend
The same goes for things some consider evil. One may believe that it is an evil thing to kill another human under any circumstances. Another person
may say that sometimes it is nessicary.
The truth of the matter is that there is no such thing as good or evil. Step out of the thinking boxes of either side into a neutral position. It then
becomes obvious of everything. They aren't good, they aren't evil, they just hold one perspective of the same thing.
That's the realness of the whole situation, no good, no evil, just different perspectives. Due to the ego of our world, many cannot accept any other
ideas than their own to be truth, so they claim anyone that believes otherwise are 'evil' people.
To be able to unclassify yourself as either, and for more people to accept that there's often more than one answer to the same problem and theirs
might not always be the best one, is a step in the right direction for humanity.
