Notes

In Western exoteric teachings, good and evil are personified as cosmic forces battling it out in a cosmic war.[1]

In Western esoteric teachings, initiates are taught that there should be a balance or equilibrium between Good and Evil, see Justice, The Wheel of Fortune.[2] Why? Because this allows them to manipulate and confuse the masses.[3] [4]

In Western esoteric teachings, the battle is sometimes conceived as between warring aspects of the psyche. The ultimate goal is acceptance and integration of the "dark side" of our psychic selves, hatred, fear, loathing, etc.

Half-way between the east and west, and north and south, in a properly instituted temple are placed two upright pillars.6 One of these is colored white, the other black. These pieces of lodge furniture are emblematical of the two opposites functioning in the diverse operations of nature. Just as the temple represents in miniature the whole of life by which we may ever be confronted, or, rather, the manifold parts of our own inner nature, so these two pillars symbolize some aspect of these phenomena. They represent light and darkness, heat and cold. In man, they stand for love and hate, joy and pain, mind and emotion, life and death, sleeping and waking. Every pair of opposites conceivable to the human mind find their representation in the implication of these two pillars....The technique under consideration consists primarily in the conscious reconciliation of opposing forces. It is this which has been called the development of the Golden Flower.[5]

While explaining the meaning of the tarot archetype Justice, papus says "Here we find the continuation of the symbolism of the 2nd and 5th arcana. The Seated woman occupies the Centre between the columns, the first idea of the equilibrium between Good and Evil."[6]
