Holmes Vs. Moriarty

The narrative is told from the perspective of Good in the story of Good versus Evil. Genius resides in neither one side nor the other. Matter and Anti-Matter, two energies that can’t occupy the same world. It’s the idea of Manichaeism, the world is a battle between darkness and light.

Think about the difference between that frame and the cultural value of Monopoly versus Competition. Instead of a zero-sum game, the game requires two well-matched opponents. It’s the difference between a finite game and an infinite game. In an infinite game, the rules of the game are changed to extend the game to infinity.
