This is exactly what the tyranny of the material brings us, and why it needs to be overthrown. There is a difference; and right action requires us to strive with every fiber of our being against these agencies of destruction that arise within us at all times. They are our desires, and our most essential states; and if we look at them rightly, we will discover how destructive and in fact horrifying they actually are. They are, furthermore, mindless — mechanical — and their destructive nature grinds things down relentlessly, a machine that will not stop —because it has no self-awareness.
The involutionary force is like this; it goes down because that is the only direction it knows, and it does not need any help to go there.
May your soul be filled with light.
