No darkness at all

A leading point that Christian Science sets forth for the world is the fact there is not a presence or force that exists besides God. All that genuinely is in existence is God and God’s action, or outcome. “Know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else,” says the Bible (Isaiah 45:6).

Darkness isn’t a substance or element in addition to light; it’s always simply the absence of light. In any room, there aren’t two switches on the wall—a light switch and also a “dark” switch. We can’t walk into a bright room with sunshine streaming through the windows and then switch on the “dark”!
