More like they are all variations on the same thing. Infinite space creates infinite variables and possibilities or versions. But they all have the same solution: merger of duality through wise mind, understanding, mutual empathy.

Hm, there is some iffiness about what you just said. 'they are all variations on the same thing' what do you mean? You are not really answering my questions well enough, I am sorry. How is Good and Evil 'the same' and also 'solved with understanding and mutual empathy', if they are both the same, meaning nothing really matters, all is permitted so to speak, why is a solution needed, and what is a solution solving? and what is the point? And where does mutual empathy fit in in regards to Evil and chaos and dark side? And a lot more questions, but if you dont impress me with your reply I cant bother to talk to you any more.

Not what I meant.

Good/evil is a duality.

It is the same as Light/dark.

Each is a dualist approach to discerning meaning from intention/action/consequence. Each has its purpose: to create discord, thus creating individuality.

However, they are illusions in the sense that nothing is so simple as a duality. This place is infinitely complex.
 Quoting: Kai (VALIS)

Ah, yes! We have arrived at a disagreement. I think Good, is ultimate primary. And the ultimate value in relation to a being who shares 'family', and then although the world is a mess right now, community and species in general.

So yes, lets focus on one of the dualistic approaches, or the more important ones, instead of being so general as to compare them so easily and lump them together. The true nature of light, as in EM radiation, and dark, is hardly a good comparison, but if you mean the concept of light and dark, as in good and evil, well then we are just speaking about good and evil, which I believe is one of the most important concepts to human and humanity. If you know of another very important dual concept, please state it and we can discuss it. Positive and negative, again, if not speaking about magnetic, this is related to good and evil, so lets just stick to one, unless you have other separate ones.

Is creating individuality the highest purpose? Obviously in a sense, for the individual, the nature of being, is solely dependent on the very tautological concept of an individual manning its way through its being through the realm it finds itself thrust into being, in. But, this says nothing about the potential value systems and powers regarding the creating of the realm, the shaping of the realm, the shaping of the individual, the shaping of individuals, for better and for worse, and why.
