I am always amazed at the insight of Judaism, although I shouldn't be considering where it is coming from. To think that by crossing into darkness one might better understand the light might seem superfluous, like appreciating the day after the night. The power of evil darkness can be understood as fear, (caused by an evil act), to be increased by the full power of G-d without mercy. Of course that could only happen while near the presence of G-d. What would be the outcome of a soul beholding such unbridled terror. I dare say it would not be nice. Thank you for teaching the sublime.
