Can there be a darker world than that of a nuclear holocaust?
It makes no difference in that darkness where the strands of love were broken that caused the night of darkness to descend. All that matters in this darkness is the last thing that we've got left that is of value, which is one-another and the stands of love that bind us to each other and to our humanity. Thus love becomes our light when all the other lights have become discredited and have failed. And so we move forwards in that light to confront the darkness.
When our humanity remains the only thing of value that we've got, then it grows in value and becomes the only value. And so, in the flow of it a whole new world becomes created, a world that never existed before. We suddenly discover that amazing achievements can become possible and subsequently happen, some with a scope we had never even dared to expect or imagine.
In the novel the holocaust is relatively small so that not the whole world is effected. However, this creates a paradox as the bright new world of a more universal love begins to clash with old world that has remained as convoluted and unyielding as ever. In the novel the old empire forces that have 'ordered' the holocaust in the first place have survived. Their arm still reaches out as before to crush the budding glow of any new humanism in the world. While some forces emerge that should crush them, their logic seems to be that they will succeed as they have always succeeded, with bribery, treachery, and murder. And maybe they are right in this case, because darkness, no mater how deep, isn't a force of substance that can uplift the world into a new renaissance even if it does so in a few isolated cases. A worldwide renaissance must have a broad universal foundation of intelligent culture, scientific advances, technological progress and a more expansive love that uplifts all.
Thus the question remains as the novel is closing of whether the great light that has been experienced by a few as being brighter than the sun is sufficient to become the seed for a new world, or whether it becomes extinguished again?
