In all seriousness, you have one hell of mind to work with. I am impressed with your intellect and wish to once again acknowledge that you have the intelligence to do whatever you set your mind to. The problem with having such a powerful engine is that you must learn how to control it and steer in the right direction. Any direction is fine as long as it is right for you. There is no rush to determine what works for you. You are your own project. I hope you learn and grow for as long as you live. I have a feeling that you will.
When I was involved in my "good versus evil" thing, it sure seemed important at the time. Looking back on it, I see that, for me, it was an impediment to personal growth. I was running around in circles. I was simply investing too much time, energy, and emotion into searching for answers to questions that were never asked of me, and that would not help me to become functional, positive, and productive in the corporeal lives we lead. There was no payoff to the investment. I remain spiritual, and have no need of certainty. What is, is. Now, I look for the beauty and joys that can be found in God's creation. There is just so much of it. It is infinite. Why look towards darkness when there is so much light to protect you from getting lost in it?
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
