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 other—a 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.
