 Heaven & Hell, Angelic & Demonic, Virtue & Sin, Holy & Unholy, Light & Darkness, Good & Evil, Milton's Paradise Lost & Dante's Inferno, white mana & black mana: the eternal dichotomies. This was the theme our Magic writers tackled this week. Here's how it went down:

 Without Contraries is no progression.
 Attraction and Repulsion, Reason and Energy, Love and Hate are necessary to Human existence.
 From these contraries spring what the religious call Good & Evil.
 Good is the passive that obeys Reason. Evil is the active springing from Energy.
 Good is Heaven. Evil is Hell.

– William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
