December Reflections - Light

Well this one is easy, right? Jesus Christ, light of the world.

But not so fast though - what does it mean for a philosophical atheist? Light is just a way for energy to get around. It's just E-fields and B-fields doing what they've been doing since the era of recombination.

Light could also mean enlightenment. Where we work to examine the world, our history and our minds in order to improve the state of all humanity.

Light could mean that we examine dark corners within our psyches and try to tidy up what we find.

Light could mean the flicker of candles and a welcoming hearth.

But really, I think that for all of us earthlings, light means life.
