"I like apples"
"I get it the apple is symbolic of temptation and the temptations sang, so you're saying to sing"
Don't make leaps, take steps
Hold on, Nick.
I was asking about the implications of framing Jack as being Jewish and how I was supposed to interpret it: post #21. As you'll recall, you then asked why I thought Light was positive. I didn't necessarily think that. I was actually asking about your making it seem like it was a good or bad thing and if I was supposed to interpret it one way or another, hence my asking about you calling Jack Jewish.
I relented; I said fine, I was misunderstanding you and made it seem like a personification, where it can be viewed as a good or bad thing.
This is when you asked me to convey my understanding of primordial darkness and I reciprocated, agreeing to the concept of "false light".
Your next comment was condemning my framing Lucifer as a deceiver. I thought then it was best to just cut to the chase, leaving behind dichotomous frames and simply repeated the question, this time leaving out the word that seemed to trigger the next response - I called it Trickster and not deceiver this time.
Here is where you assumed I meant Satan, but I'm, again, fully aware "Satan" just means "adversary".
Next, I gave examples of why I thought a crucial component of Lucifer was deception, namely in this situation agreeing Jack's light was false (deception). Next you again asked me about the primordial darkness concept and I illustrated my understanding of the typical story used, specifying why we consider the light of the Demiurge to be false.
Nick, I don't think I ever made a leap after my initial misunderstanding, which you never really answered, you just assumed I meant to say "bad guy" when I just meant the Trickster archetype (to me it's devoid of polarized perspective). Frankly, I was asking you about your dichotomous frame of Jack and I explicitly asked if you were just being cynical or something. Maybe I should've asked if it was supposed to be a fleeting example, not one through which I should perceive any deeper connotation of Lucifer.
I'm not sure why you're being impatient with me. I've tried to just cut back to the original question multiple times now...
