Socrates, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. — the most elevated, effective, change-ushering people on our plant have always taught about the principles of light & dark. Not “right” or “wrong” — simply the physics / mechanics of how Light operates.
Darkness is the absence of light. And so it follows that if you walk up to or into a space of darkness emanating light, you will eliminate the absence of light in that portion of the darkness. It is the basis of non-violent confrontation. Stand in Shine and the darkness before you has no choice but to be bathed in the reflection of your Shine.
