New Book “Why Evil Matters” Exposes the Underbelly of Darkness and Light

What is evil? Why is it seemingly so pervasive on our planet right now? Is there a purpose to evil that can help mankind truly extricate the light?

These questions were the basis of a discussion with the host of the popular podcast Skeptiko and author of the new (forthcoming) book: Why Evil Matters, Alex Tsakiris.

We explored the questions…

– Does darkness act as an independent agent or is it a catalyst to help us understand who WE really are?

– Has science largely dismissed the idea of evil as nothing more than a “social construct” vs a force in and of itself?

– What lives beyond the 3D and to what extent does it impose its reality upon us?

– What role do we (humans) play in co-creating ALL reality, including the shadow (or evil) that appears to be foisted upon us?

– Do Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, After Death Communication, and even contact with ET play a part in this “play” we call “evil?”

In this DEEP DIVE episode we explore all of these questions within the framework of what Alex refers to as extended consciousness realms.

Controversial, but worth the listen for sure!

Alex’s new book “Why Evil Matters” is set to be released in January of 2021.

Alexis was a guest on Alex’ Skeptiko podcast in June of 2019. You can listen to their deep dive discussion HERE!

    Good and bad are the names of end results. A person, place, object, thought, etc. is not labeled good (the name of something we want) or bad (the name of something we do not want) until after the experience. We use the words good/bad as a quick way to tell another what it that experience is without having to tell the experience. Example: You come across a person who asks if the place you came from is where he wants to be (can not say the person asks if it is a good/bad place because in this example those words do not exist). The only way to answer the question is to tell them about your experience of it. However, if there is a name for that experience (good/bad), you could just tell him it is a good/bad place and they can decide for themselves without having to tell your experiences.
    Evil is the one who chooses to do bad for the enjoyment of it. A place becomes evil when there are experiences of those who chose to cause harm for the enjoyment of it. An object that is made for the purpose of enjoying killing and hurting and using it for such would be called evil.
    An object is not labeled bad until it does not work. A place is not labeled good until one has a pleasing experience there. A thought is not labeled bad until one decides it is.
    Good and bad are the names of end results. Something has to happen or be decided upon before it can have the label good/bad. Evil, and it’s opposite, benevolence, are a choice. The choice to do bad/good for the sake of it (pleasure, desire, etc.) and nothing more.

    I forgot about the darkness. In this existence of opposites in order for there to be the concept of light then the concept of darkness must also exist. The concept of light is being able to see and the concept of darkness is not being able to see. We only call things “in the light” when we are able to see it, and when we can not it is “in the dark”. Those with the ability to see in the dark would not see dark but what ever is there. Energy glows. All this stuff we ‘”see” is made of energy, and our eyes are designed to use this as means to interpret the other things in this existence that can effect us when coming into contact with it (if you can see the glow of the wall ((it’s structure)) you will not run into it). All the things we can not see are the things that will not effect us here so we do not need to unless we want to (choice). When you are not living is there darkness or light? You will be told both and neither. When you are not living there is no concept of light and dark because they are the same thing (opposite sides of the SAME coin) and since you do not have “eyes” it does not matter because it is the “eyes” that are designed to determine the difference (you have no need for the concept of light/dark there so it is not there, but if you want it, it is).
