    And what do you say to the rest of my post?

    For someone rocking a Stoic logo as their avatar it perplexes me why you're attributing a moral value to light and darkness, life and death, existence and non-existence. These things just are.

    And Windwalker is right - darkness does not exist as a thing. It is simply the absence of light (which is a type of radiation). You may want to do more research in this area so you become un-baffled.

    A stoic is a person
    First a stoic person is some who handles pain and suffering without complaint. Not relevant to morality. Secondly the science is irrelevant to you and I without the light we would die. Our whole society is based on or manipulation of light(or energy if you must). Research does not keep you alive, that climate control does. And makes it possible for you to research. Maybe you should leave the comforts of you synthetic environment so you have better understanding of how reliant you are on light. Without it where would you be, in the dark. Your arguing science not reality. I understand that it's not a subject of morality. But when in the context of lets say the Bible or any other anthropomorphized tale. We get hung up on words. I don't care what light is or isn't if it's radiation or dog ****. I know for a fact it keeps all of us alive. It still baffles me that you deny that. But considering I know all is eternal, I can see why you like to stay put in you transcendental state of mind.

    Yes, a "stoic" (little 's') person is someone who handles pain and suffering without complaint. However, the logo in your avatar is associated with Stoicism (upper case 'S'), an ancient Greek philosophical system fundamentally concerned with ethics, morality, and the Good (virtue). So, when a person comes on a forum conflating stoicism and Stoicism, and light (radiation) and morality, you can see how it becomes very muddled.

    The rest of your post doesn't make much sense to me and I'm not sure how to interpret your tone. It doesn't read in a friendly way and you don't seem to be seeking information or constructive dialogue. So.. what's the point of your thread? It's not clear to me, I'm afraid.

    I understand your position. Unfortunately, many people are more interested in being right than finding the truth. Have a nice day.

    I don't really understand your OP, then. Your OP sounds like it is going "light = good, dark = evil." That's classic dualism. What point are you trying to make?

    Physical photons traveling (light) do not uniquely enable life. All aspects of physical reality are necessary for life.

    The only real dualistic panentheism I can think of offhand are certain brands of Christianity that are super into the idea of a "body of Christ". They have clearcut good/evil, but most pantheism (and panentheism) is just not at all into that.

    It seems like the OP kinda just decided to drive a point home even if it involved multiposts.
