Can you defeat a woman? Women have experienced some of the greatest hardship in this world, and continue to do so. Yet, women are still strong. So, yes, you may kill one woman, but you will never defeat women. We are not speaking about us though, we are speaking about god. I don't think it is illogical to say that God cannot defeat Evil, even though he is omnipotent. God may have unlimited influence, in whatever he is, and understands. And perhaps, god's influence, ends where evil begins. As god is supposed to be Pure, and not Evil.

I am not sure if supreme power is overcoming duality. I don't think we can escape or overcome duality. I think we are dual beings, by the simple thought vs. perception. However, I do see your point and I acknolwedge that, yes, God may have conquered his duality, but, if God conquered duality, why is there need for duality in his creations? We are born dual, do you agree, or disagree?

Peace.
