Give thanks I-ciple
What makes the void, or primoridial waters evil/bad?
Bad is a description of an action.
Bad in itself does not exist, neither does good.
Man can describe bad because they have defined good and vice versa.
I am not talking about the human condition which is dualistic. I am talking metaphysically...in essence...not form.
Metaphysically, there is no good or bad.
Good and bad are human descriptors.
For example, many women say they want a "good" man. This man would be good for that particular woman and may be bad for another.
Is that man bad or good in essence?
In kemet, the I is right about there being no "devil". They considered Suketh as being the good of storms and destruction. Destruction is needed for rebirth.
It is true that the western world has made Suketh/Set synonomous with the devil.
But I think that there had to be a Icept of imbalance (u may call it evil) in Kemet in order for them to have to come up with declarations of Ma'at. If there was no imbalance then why the need to declare that you have not done anything against Ma'at (balance)?
Higher natures are in tune with Ma'at (balance)
Lower natures are not in tune with Ma'at..imbalanced.
Balance and imbalance or neither good or bad in itself.
