Plato paints the picture of a Charioteer driving a chariot pulled by two winged horses:
"First the charioteer of the human soul drives a pair, and secondly one of the horses is noble and of noble breed, but the other quite the opposite in breed and character. Therefore in our case the driving is necessarily difficult and troublesome."
 The Charioteer represents intellect, reason, or the part of the soul that must guide the soul to truth; one horse represents rational or moral impulse or the positive part of passionate nature (e.g., righteous indignation); while the other represents the soul's irrational passions, appetites, or concupiscent nature. The Charioteer directs the entire chariot/soul, trying to stop the horses from going different ways, and to proceed towards enlightenment.

We have the ability to label things, i could show you a rock and tell you its evil, yes the concept of good and evil exist but its not a property that anything can have which is why i say it does not exist since so far we are unable to find it in the physical world, no matter how hard i believe the rock I'm holding is evil it is simply a rock.
The thing is you have to first define what you mean by it exist, because if you think about it good and evil are simple arrangements of molecules in your brain and how you deconstruct and conceptualize these things.
Try and step out of yourself for a second and forget about being human to analyze these sort of things, the ego is your worst enemy in these situations.edit on 23-7-2012 by CesarO because: (no reason given)
Is that so? Was it my ego that told me there definitely was a spiritual attack like experience going on with the cinema shooter for a purpose not his own?
and there was another thread today where the guy was hearing voices telling him to kill himself and he felt the negative energy from those around him also. No evil?! hmph! who thought?! and news to me.
I guess we just need to convince the entire population of Earth there is no such thing and it's just a 'concept' and mosey along on our very merry way then....as friends
Okay, no evil....but there is some nasty rotten horrible suck filled bastards on this planet, is that better?
Negative energy pal, can be just as harnessed as positive energy.
sorry to be confrontational, it's in my nature or is it genes, or is it my karma...... I give up!
