As I dig deeper and deeper into the LHP, I’m beginning to think that dualism is not necessarily a Law of the Universe.
Dualism seems to be deeply entrenched in occult principles - dark and light, evil and good, up and down, above and below, black and white, male and female, yin and yang, death and life, hatred and love, left and right, and so on. Both the LHP and even RHP follow this. But I am beginning to think that this is restrictive of what reality is: everything is a shade of grey. For example: there is no good, there is no evil, because it’s all based on circumstances and perspective.
What do you think? Is dualism a universal law, or a paradigm to eventually overcome as we explore reality?
I believe it is a universal law. Because you have one grey and you have a second grey, and they’re not the same, and the only way to differentiate them is that one is more dark than the other. And so you have the two greys, and for comparison reasons white and black exist. There can be no middle, no grey, without either ends cause otherwise everything would be the same.
I concur with @Orthos , in that most things are indeed a mixture of yin and yang. If we refer to something as being specifically as yin, or yang, then that just means they are yin-dominant or yang-dominant, and thus may be lighter or darker.
Some things walk a fine line in the very middle and may be referred to as grey, and most things strive for equilibrium in some degree, which is why most things act optimally at grey, unless they were not built for that. Most “demons” are really just highly yin-dominant entities, and act best under those circumstances.
Make no mistake, there are opposing forces to this universe, which interact in highly intriguing dynamics, but it is these interactions which will lead to all things in the cosmos, each individual included. Too much darkness for your system will compress your energy, to the point of making you go bonkers. Too much light for your system will expand your energy, to the point of incapacitating you. Notice that I emphasize, for your system, because some things will naturally lean towards one extreme or the other, and may require more of one force than the other to work optimally, if they were built for that kind of thing.
To try to oversimplify, or overcomplicate, either of these, is a fallacy, since you cannot explain it, as well as you can observe it, and utilize it.
II agree with @Orthos yes there is no white and blacks. The universe or/ and Aether is a reflection of our mind and we are never completely black or white at least we never have such a complete equilibrium on one side, always shades of grey around us, we may seem to be wonderful man for example if we save lives in hospital as a physicians but still some of our colleagues may hate us for some reason, at the end this is life and all is mixed, basically all depends on your perspective
I’d say that morality is subjective in human beings and many entities, as their experience shapes their mind, but with the universe there are certain good and evil forces. They are evil because they threaten all of our existences through all realms as a whole. There are parts that wish to kill and choose what happens to us ascending ones once we’re dead, and there are parts that respect life and protect us on the road to godhood. This trickles down to the idea of a Great War for our freedom, which several great spirits talk about extensively. They need Gods to fight in this war that is greater than the earth. Aliens would come and we would unite and all that shit. I’m not so sure that’s true, but it would be badass. Anyway there is a darker and lighter force at two sides of the universe, that’s it
Yes and no
Dualism is an inherent part of perception. There is a dog, and therefore there is everything that is not the dog. This is especially true when using adjectives. Something can be hot, so it could also be the opposite of hot.
Reality is unified, but to navigate within reality we must decide that one direction is North and the other direction is South.
I disagree with the first sentence. (I mean, if we say man and woman are dualism than they are obviously not polarity, cause the polarity of man is anti-man and woman anti-woman, but the concepts of man and woman are polarities within gender itself). I agree with the second sentence in that white and black (still going to use those terms) are aspects of the same thing, in the sense that they are all that is. But I believe dualism is polarity because even though nothing in existence is wholly black or white (?), black and white exist concretely in theory. If the ideas of them didn’t exist concretely, they couldn’t manifest into the differentiating forms of all things.
Yeah interesting. I’m still holding to my opinion that dualism is polarity is a universal law.
I agree with what you said except for the last part. I know so much of life is perception, but there are still fundamental blocks reality is built upon, and I believe the first one is duality.
I agree with you the most, but I’d say it’s just yes.
Everyone: My perspective on this is, even though all things are grey, dualism is still a universal law because it exists in theory. I have thought about it a lot. I see it as the beginning of reality (even if it had no beginning in time (i.e. its fundamentals)).
Someone made a post about an entity saying “If nothing does nothing for long enough it becomes something”. Ideas about infinity, zero, duality and how they manifest into the entirety of reality. I see it as, at its simplest form:
Everything exists because nothing by definition doesn’t exist (apparently, I heard this somewhere and I guess it checks out, cause ‘I think therefore I am’, we’re all here so reality exists). To begin the illusion of separation reality had to differentiate. And it did this by polarity and dualism. One side had to be more of itself than the other side. And I think that’s how this rule began within the infinity that never began, the beginning of sorts even though it is at the core and there is no time.
If we go by the old definitions, we clearly need duality, yes we need one thing be either zero or one. Binary code implies that, no doubt.
But what about quantum computing something new but put our mind a total new perspective and puts it within the boundaries of reality, it says as you may know neither of the blocks should be 1 or 0 where they can be both at the same time. Maybe that is a better definition to new duality concept, the reality is something questinable and hope to discuss another time, but sure you know the debates about it.
Duality yes, it can be helpful to a degree but isn’t really a necessity in the " more real or deeper or bigger whatever you may call it" universe, I think
No, I don’t think dualism is a universal law. I think dualism is a human invention and a product of how our brain works. I think that Monism is more accurate. It’s the idea that all stuff seen and unseen is made of the same building blocks. The ancient Greek theory of atoms was an out growth of a monism world view.
