I see! But that doesn’t make sense to me, though. That would mean that everything just “exists” without context. That would also mean, then, that concepts of good and evil are equal. So why do we reward those who do good, but punish those who do evil? If good only has meaning *because* of evil, and evil only because of good, this tells us nothing about their natures. It doesn’t tell us what *is* evil or good — just that they have meaning in relation to each other. So, with this logic, I could say murdering someone is good and loving someone is evil, because there is no distinction between the two. Do you see?
