|“||Suppose what your faith has said is essentially correct. Suppose there is a universal mind controlling everything, a god willing the behavior of every subatomic particle. Every particle has an anti-particle, its mirror image, its negative side. Maybe this universal mind resides in the mirror image instead of in our universe as we wanted to believe. Maybe he's anti-god, bringing darkness instead of light.||„|
|— Prof. Howard Birack|
An Anti-God, also called the Devil, is an archetype present in several religions such as Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Gnosticism, Manichaeism and so on. An Anti-God is an antagonistic figure that represents the opposite of what a God would be, being an evil entity of darkness and terror. Although the figure of the Anti-God is very present in different religions, some religions have abandoned the concept of an antagonist of God and someone who rises up against the Almighty, such as Islam, which considers that Allah is responsible for the Good and the Evil, something that is also shared in Kabbalah, with the two trees of Sefirot and Qliphoth being part of God.
In fiction, the Anti-God/Primordial Void represents the counterpart and/or sometimes dark aspects of the Supreme Being. They are considered the essence of all evil, darkness and chaos in all of existence. As the ultimate destroyer, they are ranked among the most powerful beings.
