Description

In this course I will explain what the Dark Side or darkness really is. As a by product you will also understand what the Light really is.

The hues white and black are widely used to depict opposites. Visually, white and black offer a high contrast. In Western culture, white and black traditionally symbolize the dichotomy of good and evil, metaphorically related to light and darkness and day and night. The dichotomy of light and darkness appears already in the Pythagorean Table of Opposites.

  • in religion and mythology
    • The Genesis creation narrative has God 'separate light from darkness' on the First Day.
    • War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness
    • The underworld (Hades, Tartarus) was imagined as a chthonic place of darkness, contrasting with the celestial realm of the gods. Christian notions of heaven and hell inherit this conception, as do the 'dark angels' vs. the unfallen angels, often with aureola (halos), inChristian mythology.
  • 'Black and white thinking' is the false dichotomy of assuming anything not good is evil and vice versa.
  • Dress
    • White often represents purity or innocence in Western culture, particularly as white clothing or objects are easy to stain. In most Western countries white is the color worn by brides at weddings. Angels are typically depicted as clothed in white robes. In manyHollywood Westerns, bad cowboys wear black hats while the good ones wear white. Melodrama villains are dressed in black and heroines in white dresses. Evil witches are stereotypically dressed in black and good fairies in white.
    • This can be reversed as a deliberate play on conventions, by having the evil character dress in white, as a symbol of their hypocrisy or arrogance. For example, Don Fanucci in 'The Godfather, Part II' is an evil character, but wears an expensive all-white suit as a sign of his esteem, power and prestige. Sometimes protagonists can wear black too, as inStar Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, wherein Luke Skywalker wears black during the final battle.
    • In computer security, a black hat is an attacker with evil intentions, while a white hat bears no such ill will. (This is derived from the Western movie convention.)
  • Magic
    • Healing or 'good' paranormal magic is called White magic. Black magic is a destructive or evil form of magic.
    • A Treatise on White Magic is a book by Alice Bailey, a Theosophist.
    • White witch.
  • The Yin and yang symbol, attributed to Lái Zhī-Dé (1525–1604).
  • The Dark Ages vs. the Age of Enlightenment.
  • As shown in The Lord of the Rings, the antagonist is Sauron, who is the 'Dark Lord.'

The topos of 'light and darkness' is also reflected in numerous titles in popular culture, such as Heart of Darkness (1899), Light in My Darkness (1927), Darkness and the Light (1942),Creatures of Light and Darkness (1969), From Darkness to Light (1973), Darkness and Light (1989), The Lord of the Light and of the Darkness (1993), the Star Trek: Deep Space 9episode 'The Darkness and the Light' (1997), the Babylon 5 episode 'Between the Darkness and the Light' (1997), and Out of the Darkness, Into the Light (1998).

George Orwell makes a bitterly ironic use of the 'light and darkness' topos in his Nineteen Eighty Four. In the early part of the book the protagonist is getting a promise that 'We will meet in the place where there is no darkness' - which he interprets as referring to a place where the oppressive totalitarian state does not rule. But the man who made the promise was in fact an agent of the Thought Police - and they eventually meet as prisoner and interrogator where there is indeed no darkness, in detention cells where the light remains on permanently, day and night, as an additional means of torturing detainees.

Course Content

Gilad James, PhD

Researcher of hidden knowledge

Hi :) I hope you'll let me share with you some wonderful teachings.

I hold a PhD in Mythology & Occultism from Bircham University. I've been researching different spiritual and religious teachings, ancient and modern texts and the occult for the past decade. I specialize in channeled teachings. These are teachings that were transmitted to people from beings on the other side!

I travelled the world in my quest to uncover hidden knowledge. I celebrated the new moon at a witch coven in New Zealand, I witnessed how a blind person begins to see in Mexico and helped ghosts complete their transition in Colombia. Research for me is not only about reading books, it's about people and culture.

I uncover hidden knowledge about different planes of existence, enhancing psychic abilities, manipulating energies, how to heal and perform miracles, what happens after death, how to initiate an out of body experience and even extraterrestrial teachings and philosophies.

These teachings are timeless and can help us find peace, tranquility and evolve spiritually. My goal in my courses is to help students find that inner peace and expand their consciousness.

I hope you'll let me become a friend and a guide to this crazy world of hidden and sacred knowledge.
