Ultimately, Darkness will meet its end. Our choice lies only in the form of its demise:

If we meet nothing but success at every stage of our mission, Darkness will helplessly surrender and deliver to our hand every spark of the divine it has so jealously held captive.

When we fail, however, we have taken upon ourselves to wrestle Darkness face to face until its utter annihilation. Darkness will not surrender—no trace will be left of it that can do so. Darkness itself will have been transformed to light.

There is no greater light than when darkness shines.
