The Analysis Of Light And Dark

The opposition of light and darkness has its origin in a simple natural cycle that people contemplated each day and were trying to comprehend for centuries - the change of day and night. In the color code the pair 'black and white' corresponds to the light and darkness. As for the moral categories - it's 'good and evil', 'life and death'.

Initially there was no antagonistic correlation between light and darkness. They succeeded each other in the alternation of beads in Native American necklaces, symbolizing the course of time, the day and night. In the ancient Chinese symbols, the yin and yang, the lights and darkness signs are mutually exclusive and at the same time are mutually complementary concepts that are inseparably connected in the circle of life. The original meaning of Yin is associated with a shaded, north side of the hill and Yang - a sunlit southern slope of that hill. Later, Yin has become associated with the feminine principle, earth, moonlight, even numbers and death and yang - with the male principle, sky, sun, odd numbers, and the life. At all times, the Chinese cared about maintaining the balance between these two forces in the cosmos, in public and social life, in the life force of each person. The complete fusion of Heaven and Earth was considered ideal.

The Chaos was the original darkness, and the first ray of sun was light, signifying the beginning of the act of creation, shaping space, which drew "building blocks" from the same Chaos. This scheme of world creation is common for all the peoples. The darkness as an integral part of the abyss that spawned all the life in the universe, had an inexhaustible creativity. In the darkness of the cave, the underworld, or dense forest went all the epic heroes to search for the secrets of life. In the darkness the ascetics and monks of various religions began to see clearly the divine truth, "true path" and their mission. The blind doomed to darkness become visionaries and able to see what is invisible to others. In the Old Testament the separation of light and darkness is simply stated: ‘And God said, Let there be light: and there was light’

In the Gospel of John, Christ was directly called the "Light". Christ in his sermons excluded the presence of darkness in the righteous man. However, the dialectic of life was much more difficult. The Absolute Darkness, as well as the Absolute Evil, is rare. More often the boundary between light and darkness is mutually permeable.

The opposition of light and darkness has its origin in a simple natural cycle that people contemplated each day and were trying to comprehend for centuries - the change of day and night. In the color code the pair 'black and white' corresponds to the light and darkness. As for the moral categories - it's 'good and evil', 'life and death'.
