Good & Bad Paradox

Duality's Arising Pairs are not mutually exclusive like the ancient belief in good & bad prevalent among dualistic religions.
The root cause of this is inadequate Understanding of G-d as having an undefeated Antagonist named Satan who he can't seem to finally get it over with.
In reality G-d is Emptiness itself. No-thingness. Formless.
Eventually your visual world will turn black.
That is the beginning & the end in a Twinkle.
In reality the very notion of 'bad' ever existing on this Planet is absurd, as the only cause of suffering is ignorance, and ignorance is not necessarily bad.

Ignorance is lack of Understanding.

If Ignorance is lack of Understanding...
then Total Understanding must imply Enlightenment.

Ignorance vs Understanding is also within that same dualist category as Good vs Bad or Satan vs God.

In Advaita, there is no ignorance and no understanding, as it is the mind/ego which does both.

There is that which either incorporates polar opposites...viz, if God is 'omnipotent', God must also be Satan, or else God is simply not omnipotent OR transcends both opposites with the awareness that Brahman is neither God NOR Satan, but just is.

There is no relational framework between the differentiated Self and the undifferentiated Source....Source alone exists independent of awareness or perception...then Jivatman and Paramatman are seen as the one expression of pure consciousness.

What do you mean by: “your visual world will turn black” ?

All forms that we witness with our sense of vision are separate but arise in pairs thus pointing towards Unity amidst seeming Duality/Opposition/Friction... You could say that the hypothesis is that our truest nature is Emptiness that we come closest to letting the separate self fall away during Deep Sleep.
In Deep Sleep we are not aware of forms arising, and my postulate is that that is the Primordial State that we are all progressing towards merging with... Stepping into the Fertile Void indefinitely...

Understanding is the only tool by which we can make our Hearts Single and thus experience a Non-Dual World: A Single Heart makes for a Single World; A Single World makes for a World at Peace; for it takes Two to make a War.

For Love will guide your Hand, while Understanding holds the Lantern.
