Violator violated

In The Mythology, Ananke is equated with undifferentiated oneness. 1=0

In the beginning the originating principle, Love, violates Ananke.

The cosmic egg and the emergence of life, Eros, results.

The unremitting cycle is broken.

It is a cycle that that must continue to be broken if life, mind, consciousness, are to differentiate themselves from nature and ultimately from entropic death.

From the violated and the violator emerges a third entity, new man, new consciousness, imagination (imagination is God - Blake).

The active and dynamic party is the violator.

The violator cannot help his actions.

Love is blind.

There is also a divine principle at work… he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)

The Seraphim are not distinct from God, so must occupy innocents to awaken men.

Whoever is a Seraph, that is a lover, is in God and God is in him; even, it maybe said, God and he are one. (Oration on the Dignity of Man, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola)

Only the highest orders of angels enjoy the immediate gaze of God and know the mystery of love.

An angel occupied your body and spoke to me… touched me… and drew me towards the Divinity. (The Seraphim)

After the union, the violated and violator lay spent and discarded.

What emerges from the egg? Not a new being, but rather being out of non-being. The violator violated.

The paradox is this.

The violator, now conscious, was the violated party.

But is not the unremitting cycle to be consciously broken?
