Elora: What, if any, is the difference in the personal experience of life between those infiltrated by Darkness and those not?
Heru: Imagine, if you would, two tuning forks. One of them might be covered with whatever junk that would prevent it from sounding, but the tuning fork itself is still in perfect pitch. At any time that it is unwrapped and struck, it will resonate. Because of that it holds at its core that true resonance, even though it is not sounding. Then imagine a second tuning fork, where the tines have been twisted and distorted. Whether it is wrapped or not wrapped, whether it is struck or unstruck, it always carries that distortion at its core. And that is not to say that this is uncorrectable.
Heru: That is perhaps too broad a question. In some cases yes, in that they would receive a great deal of support in acting the nefarious schemes of the Dark. You could say the wheels are greased and their ambitions are oftentimes not thwarted, because they are in essence Sons of the Ruling Body, whether that is literally or in spirit. But ease does not equate to happiness or harmony. [Elora: Is there a tremendous pain deep in the soul of all the Fallen?] How could there not be?
