Although it is commonly conceived as such IT is not light, yet IT is not dark or darkness – IT is simply without light. IT is neither light nor darkness.
The biblical, ‘ . . . and the Lord said, “Let there be light and there was light.”’ applies to the creation of energy and thence light. Obviously, therefore the “Lord” is not the light.
The common conception of IT [The Great Spirit, God, Allah et al] as something approximating human form; a crutch for us to lean on, and light in various forms and manifestations, probably stems from the early earthling experience where we saw the sun as “God” and worshipped it in awe.
Note: Until very recently, I have conceptualised IT as a form of light but, today, my awareness of it has consolidated as above.
