    You shouldn't curse at all.

    Chinese philosophy Taoism describes the properties of light and darkness.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taoism

    In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (/jɪn/ and /jɑːŋ, jæŋ/; Chinese: 陰陽 yīnyáng, lit. "dark-bright", "negative-positive") is a concept of dualism in ancient Chinese philosophy, describing how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. In Chinese cosmology, the universe creates itself out of a primary chaos of material energy, organized into the cycles of Yin and Yang and formed into objects and lives. Yin is the receptive and Yang the active principle, seen in all forms of change and difference such as the annual cycle (winter and summer), the landscape (north-facing shade and south-facing brightness), sexual coupling (female and male), the formation of both men and women as characters, and sociopolitical history (disorder and order)

    Man represents Yang and woman represents Yin.

  • They are just expressions.

    At some point we fumbled in the dark, we were beasts driven by instinct, and then we woke up and opened our eyes and saw what we were. And then we weren’t. Seeing gave us enlightenment and evolution of our souls.

    Why curse anything

    Even in the presence of light darkness still exists

    Light cannot do anything itself. It was created by the supreme being. I don't think that light is a natural one. It's an essential one for human beings and other creatures. Darkness is the ever existing eternal phenomenon. The darkness is darkness only to human beings, not to God or eternal beings.

    God is Energy; Light is Energy; Light, Energy, is Omnipresent. What is simply unperceived is simple "darkness." That lack of perception = "ignorance" (of Immanent Omnipresence).

    Perverting of Energy = E-veiling, eviling (cf Christ Jesus' "If that Light in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness?").

    "Cursing" is not an activity which man ought take on (as you judge, curse, so also are you judged--a two-fold sword or sacred-word). Only right-use or righteous judgment is profitable, and for that, one must needs have that Mind which was in e.g. Enoch, Abraham, Elijah, Jesus, Paul, Mary, Mohammad (owbp), and Sri Ramakrishna.

    Even as Judaism, correctly practiced, is a religion of Life, Christianity a religion of Love, Islam a religion of Peace and Justice, and Hinduism a religion of Purity, so all true paths thereof re-cognize the Light of the living Word, Brahman, as Life, Love, Peace, and Purity.

    Ignorance and malice are two errors re Energy, Light.

    You are free to curse absence of light rather than darkness itself, but the two are the same anyway.

    Light and dark.

    There's multiple reasons why light and dark are considered two separate things.

    Naturally religious and spiritual beliefs came from primitive man's reasoning and reaction of his enviroment. Knowing this, it is obvious that daytime is not seen as much as a threat as night time. Things seem more of a threat at night than at day. We can't see in the dark therefore we're completely vulnerable and useless. What can we do when we cannot see (The power just went out for me and I feel beyond lost)? Without light man is lost.

    But what did primitive man think when he started to have dreams? Dreams only came at night when man slept. He came to the conclusion that if he saw people or ancestors in his dreams that this must be the time the spirits are awake; this must be the time they communicate.

    It's beyond my means to explain everything to you. But there's much more you, on your own, can discover between why light is "good" and dark is "evil."

    I don't know wtf you're getting at but no, it's my inability to see in the dark that I curse when I stub my bare toes

    You're going to have to explain why first. Why is light inherently "good", and darkness "bad" (that's just a popular fairy tale but not derived from the natural world). As far as I'm concerned light and darkness are neutral concepts in terms of good and bad.
