Fiat Lux

“It is one of the primeval boasts or lies of Evil that darkness came before light. But the thought of ‘darkness’ before creation is simply the image or symbol that we use to imagine nothingness, or the absence of anything, which is otherwise unpictureable. The dark is the diminution of light until it deepens to the unseeable, just as Evil is the diminution of Good until it collapses into the destruction of itself. Darkness depends upon the creation of light, as Evil depends upon Good for the possibility to exist.” --from Quoniam Sapientia Stulti.
