I have to disagree. Darkness is awareness, and Light is understanding. Light is the knowledge and information. The painting to be seen. The
darkness is the awareness, the eyes watching the painting.
Step into a large gym. Turn the lights off. Put a blind fold on. Everything is dark. What are you aware of? What can you perceive, other than smell
and sound and the pressure of the floor beneath your feet? What does it tell you? What does the darkness reveal to you about your environment? Imagine
if you had been part of an activity which mandated your absolute ignorance regarding the location or nature of the room. Still no lights, and still
blind folded. What would the darkness tell you about your surroundings?
Nothing. It would tell you nothing.
Understanding doesn't come without awareness, which obliterates that part of your argument. Understanding and awareness are both light. Darkness is
lack of either, but light is the graduation from darkness. The more you learn, the more you see, and the more you see, the more you learn. With every
step, the shadows fall away. The shadows made you want to learn, and now that you ARE light, you want to go back and try that ride again. You want to
learn as much as you can, as many ways as you can. Cue the infinite cycles of existence.
Darkness is ignorance of INFORMATION not awareness.
Light is love, as in CONTROL for CARE, but NOT as in FREEDOM of individual expression...
How are information and awareness mutually exclusive? How is light not freedom? I'd like to see you contain light absolutely.
The darkness is Free and therefore Truth (Sincerity with self)
The light is Control and therefore a light (Not completely sincere but conforming...)
Darkness is a prison. Darkness is a blanket of fear, a device of containment. If you cannot perceive, you cannot escape. Intent is a result of
information and desire. Without information, you are just desperation. Desperation and darkness is a recipe of death. You will make mistakes, and the
darkness keeps you from learning because it has blinded you.
Light is freedom, it is courage, it is passion, it is hope, it is love, it is understanding, it is connectivity, it is life. But that's what makes
darkness beautiful. It's just as earnest, just as honest, and just as capable of delight. Darkness is light that serves itself. It doesn't want to
share, so it keeps the light. And only it can see the light.
You clearly don't understand light and dark. That's okay. You're human. I hope you learned something from me in this discussion. Your arguments
don't make sense, but maybe I've shown you a way to make better sense. Maybe...I've shown you the LIGHT.
