Tenets of the Sons of the Batman

1. "There are no dualities. Only symmetries." (G. Morrison)

        Good and evil are linguistic artifacts of Aristotlean dualism that describe two extremes on the same scale. The most blatant illustration of this tenet can be found in the relationship between the Batman and the Joker, but it permeates the entire Bat myth. Other examples include the demon Two-face, Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Batman/Robin. Further reading will reveal many more to the dedicated follower.

2. "As above, so below." (Hermetic axiom)

        The universe is a complex, information-rich 4-dimensional fractal pattern. The Smallest contains the whole. Common thematic refrain: "Gotham City IS Batman." The members of the angelic Bat Family as well as the qlippothic Rogue's Gallery can be read as personified aspects of the Batman mirrored back at him. Each entity, then, is a reflection of the entirety of Gotham City.

3. "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted." (Hassan i Sabbah II)

I don't know if this is serious, but if it is, then I'm in. Very cool stuff.
