Alan W Watts, in his groundbreaking book “The Way of Zen”, states [paraphrased] that all things are without self nature or independent reality since they exist only in relation to other things. Nothing can stand by itself, person, place, event, etc, so you cannot single anything out as the ideal to be grasped. What is singled out only exists in relation to its opposite.
You cannot have evil without Good, In without out, birth without death, dark without light, etc. If there was only light, nobody would know what light is; there would be nothing it was relative to-like darkness. If everybody was pure evil and there was no such thing as good, then nobody would know they were evil.
