    “Illumination” is a story about the relationships between desire, fear, and conflict. Fears are born out of desire, giving rise to what we experience as opposites. Conflict avoidance buries these already elusive relationships, intensifying our fears and desires. Facing fear is one approach to gaining understanding.
