I'm not sure why you called it "Dungeons and Dragons"...
According to The Bible, Greek Mythology, and Sumerian/Babylonian Mythology...
Chaos/Darkness was here first and then light was formed. As The Bible says, for example, that there was void and darkness covered the face of the
deep, then God said "Let there be light!".
In Greek mythology, Chaos/Darkness created Eros (Desires/Passion) which brought in Light and then Heaven and Earth.
In Sumerian Mythology, Abzu and Tiamat (The chaotic waters) brought forth Heaven (Light) ...
Quantum Physics says that Potential comes before Form (Think of Zero-point field).
The Primordial Chaos, The Nothingness, the potential, the womb of "Kali", it is the darkness (potential) giving birth to the light (form).
All of the energy around is physical. Even if it is a spirit that is made of energy, it is still physical just on a frequencies that most humans can't
see. Just like most humans can't see heat , but it exists and can be measured.
Light appears and disappears, and at some point reappears. Energy comes and go, and at some point returns. There is birth and there is death, and then
birth. It is energy recycling, appearing and disappearing.
Being attached to "Light", "Energy" will lead to suffering as it is the natural of energy/light to come and go (Change) and therefore cannot be held
on to forever (which is why materialism also leads to suffering as eventually the stuff will stale/break//rot etc. as it can't be forever, including
the physical body).
Emotions are sensations/energy running through the body. Emotion is Energy in Motion. Even that comes and goes. As does ever-changing thought.
To not identify with it, but to understand that it is something appearing and disappearing, coming and going. Sent forth from Darkness (potential).
The nature of Reality/Energy/Existence seems to be movement/change. Darkness (potential) watches Reality/Light/Energy manifesting.
