“Light out of darkness,” or “out of the darkness, light!” are expressions of an ancient wisdom about the complementarity of opposites in nature.
In eastern traditions such as Taoism and Buddhism, light and dark, chaos and order, good and evil etc. are represented by yin and yang, each of which contains the seed of its opposite within it as expressed in the symbol of the yin-yang. Various heretical mystery traditions such as Hermeneutics had similar mottos such as “As above so below” and “What is within is also without.” To the alchemists, it was the philosophers stone, known to have the powers to transmute lead into gold in the same way the masons create order out of chaos.
