The Opposite Aspects of the Endless

It is known that the Endless have dual aspects, for example, Death not only represents death but life as well, Destiny also represents freewill, Destruction is shown to represent creativity, and Dream represents reality. I believe that Despair also represents hope, as without despair, there could be no hope, and vice versa. But I can't really think of a clear opposite for Desire or Delirium. Does anyone know? and if anything I have said is wrong, please let me know and correct me.

Delirium (uncontrolled happiness) was sort of her own opposite when she was Delight (controlled happiness) and Desire? Well...

I thought the opposite of desire was self control? Or is that simply of you act on desire or not?

I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.

the parrot... ...gets tiresome.
the parrot... ...i ate him.


CHIKKINZ?

Or would the opposite of desire be the Zen position of not wanting anything?

Nope. Can't think of a 'D' word that fits.

So I'm right. I'm always right. Razz

Disgust maybe? Disinterest? I thought Apathy and tried to think of words related starting with a 'D.' Which would explain her cold attitude.
