Alive is about all I can say honestly. I've been suffering severe work overload... averaging 15 hours a day, 6 days a week lately with all the upheaval in the conglomerate of companies I work for... the recession is just making it worse.
That said, it's interesting to see how this topic has expanded, lol... seems now to be focusing on duality concepts and determining if fundamentalism is inherently bad...
I would have to agree with some of the above statements, Light isn't more powerful than Dark, or vice versa, they are two sides of the same "coin". All things have an inverse and real strength is finding ways to keep them in balance or at least in harmony, which isn't always the same thing.
Fundamentalism? It's never a good thing, be it christian, islam or even radical neo-pagans. When you get into a fundamentalist mindset, you close out reality and lock your mind away from growth and truth and stagnate in your perceptions and beliefs... and tend to force those beliefs and perceptions on everyone else. Beliefs are only good and proper when applied to a given individual, i.e. your self... as only the individual can honestly say what is "right" for them. You can't make that determination for others and in order to make that determination for yourself and do it right, you have to keep your mind open to experience and learn and not stagnate, which are some of the core issues with fundamentalists of any kind.
