About Xzavier Chronis
"Negative Evil is the practical corollary of the principle of Equilibrium. The universe is held together and perpetuated because of the strain of opposing forces. Never the less, we cannot dispense with either of these opposing factors if society is to be maintained in a healthy state; between them we achieve a steady progress that neither disorganizes society nor permits it to sink into inertia and decay. To label one contending force as good and the other as evil is a mistake and can lead to the fundamentalist heresy of dualism. We cannot deal with evil by destroying it, but only by absorbing it and harmonizing it. Each Qlippoth (Evil personified) arose primarily as an emanation of unbalanced force in the course of the evolution of the corresponding Sephiroth. The solution of the problem of evil and its eradication from the world is not achieved through suppression, or destruction, but through its compensation and consequent absorption back into the Sephiroth from which it came. Progress can not take place in perfect equilibrium. It is not until they become out of balance that the forces are freed for action, and it is only at this point that change and growth can take place."
