This is a good thought, and one that I sometimes like to mull over as well.
Just to say right off the bat, the answer I think will and forever shall be abstract until we leave this life. That being said, I’m sure many have their own ideas, which I am niether supporting nor rejecting.
In my opinion ‘good’ and ‘evil’ are just terms we use to set our conciousness straight. What something I might consider good, others may consider evil. And vice versa.
For want of a better example, take Star Wars*hears groans* Yes I know probably really cheesy, but still:
Anakin has ‘good’ intentions of brining peace to the galaxy. Did he go about it as ‘good’ or ‘evil’….of course this is where the dual answer would come in.
We might think that ruling an empire is evil, by destroying people’s free will and freedom of speech, etc. Yet did he not bring peace??? Until the rebel alliance, there was no battling, no fighting…pretty much peace. (Ok, I lost my train of thought here…)
Anyways, my point is, is that ‘good’ and ‘evil’ are all relative terms. We must in the end decide what is good and evil to us. While not necessarily having to do with ‘evil’ I would take a look at Jax’s post on darkness..or go the the Jedi Online to read something about it.
