Nothing, for us, can fill the place of undiminished brightness except the unconscious dark, nothing that of what once we might have been, except the dream that we had never been born.

This great evil. Where does it come from? How’d it steal into the world? What seed, what root did it grow from? Who’s doin’ this? Who’s killin’ us? Robbing us of life and light. Mockin’ us with the sight of what we might’ve known. Does our ruin benefit the earth? Does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine? Is this darkness in you, too? Have you passed through this night?
The Thin Red Line (the movie)

The wise man has eyes in his head but the fool walks in darkness; but I came to realize the same fate overtakes them both.

Suppose what your faith has said was essentially correct, suppose there is a Universal Mind controlling everything, a God willing the behaviour of every subatomic particle. Now every particle has an anti-particle, its mirror image, its negative side; maybe this universal mind resides in the mirror image instead of being our universe as wanted to belive, maybe he’s anti-God bringing darkness instead of light.
