What is evil? Could it be as simple as pernicious selfishness? Could it be the drive for immediate gratification without regard for others? Man’s life is limited; one hundred years or less. But, the souls of angel and watcher are eternal. Consider how much evil can be wrought through the millennia of immediate gratification on an eternal scale.
It continues to be pride that keeps us from seeing the truth of our own nature. Pride itself blinds us to our own pride. Pride, arrogance and selfishness are the seeds and flowers arising from the same root of evil. Evil is the manifestation of the same, all too common, human condition; a condition afflicting angels and watchers alike.
The root and cause of all evil arise from a self-centered viewpoint that takes no one else into consideration. It is the drive to control, dominate and consume. The condition comes from tunnel vision so narrow as to include only the person and his desires. This calls into question the nature of evil.
Does evil have a reasoned intent to hurt, kill and destroy or is there an egomaniacal innocence to evil? Could it be that complete evil is actually a blind selfishness? Does evil not arise from a refusal to consider the life, position or feelings of others? Evil thoughts, actions and feelings are based on fulfilling one’s own desires at the expense or destruction of all others. Feelings and welfare of others do not come into play, nor do they cross the mind of an evil being. The nature of evil is a twisted, childish innocence; a self-centered and myopic view.
