When people see some things as beautiful, other things become ugly. When people see some things as good, other things become bad.–Tao Te Ching, S. Mitchell tr.

Pairs of opposites are actually polarities. Polarities are creations of the human mind and not necessarily representative of reality. Speaking in the language of mythos, God created the universe and called it good. Should we assume that’s a mistake and that some bits are actually bad? You can’t get around the problem by appealing to some fallen angel, or to original sin. Either it was all good including that angel and the first humans, or it wasn’t. If it wasn’t, God made it badly and then missed the mistakes entirely when he looked at the result.
