THE SIXTH POINT
OF  THE   LIFE   OF  DARKNESS, WHEREIN  THE  DEVILS
DWELL;   WHAT BIRTH AND QUALITY IT HATH.
CHAPTER IX
1.  The life of darkness is repugnant to all life
of light;  for the darkness gives fierce and hostile
essence, and the life of light gives love-essence.
2.  In the darkness there is in the essence only
a   perpetual   stinging   and   breaking,   each  form
being enemy to the othera contrarious essence.
Each form is a liar to itself, and one says to the
other, that it is evil and adverse to it, that it is a
cause of its restlessness and fierceness.   Each thinks
in itself:   If only the other form were not, thou
wouldst have rest;   and yet each of them is evil
and false.    Hence it is, that all that is born of the
dark property of wrath is lying, and is always lying
against the other forms, saying they are evil;  and
yet it is itself a cause thereof, it makes them evil
lw its nnisnnrviiR in for/hi on.
