While I enjoyed the post, I still have a hard time coming to terms with the idea that there is fundamentally no difference between "Fear" and "Love" -- as in, which one is more desirable.
I understand you're saying they are both equally effective in channeling energy. I also understand that if one believes we exist only to gather "experiences" both good and bad, then both types of experiences are equally worthwhile.
This is the same argument I had with an ex-Buddhist monk, who told me it's "fine" for people to mistreat others, exploit the downtrodden, etc, because "there's no right or wrong" in the universe.
Shouldn't the "good" be increasingly favoured over the "bad?" Shouldn't the traits of fear and power mongering be phased out as we move towards a more peaceful and loving society?
