Basically in a best of all possible AllThatIs's, which this is,
Good is the eternal existence of what (fortunately) already exists, and
bad would be its non existence.

     In other words good is accordance between desire and the WhatIs.

     And evil is discordance between desire and the WhatIs.

     But the purpose of this WhatIs seems to be the creation of
illusions that this perfect accordance does not exist, and illusions
that the being did not create his present state of illusion.

     That's responsibility for irresponsibility.
     Thus the goodness of the WhatIs includes the ability to believe for
a while that the WhatIs is bad.
     Thus the intent to HAVE accordance between desire and the WhatIS,
includes the intent to NOT HAVE it for a while.

     In other words good is having what you want, and bad is not having
what you want, but good seems to want not having what it wants, namely
bad, for a while.  Adore defines that intent of good to have bad, to be
Majesty, as in Majestic practical joke.

     What troubles me about this view, is that good then really does
have ontological precedence over bad, as bad is an illusion created by

     Why the hell would good create bad.  That seems to be what good
enjoys creating most.  Chase and failure after desired goods.

     In otherwords Dura, the world of permanence, creates Sabe, the
world of loss.

     However it does present an auditing route out, which is to recover
the goodness to the creation of the bad, at which point the being will
regain sovereignty over the creation of bad and will be able to vanish
it at will.

     And that then would be the beginning of pure magic and super power.

     Super power is, at the top, the ability and willingness to create a
state of non super power.
