The two Tinctures are the source of the fundamental conflict and tension that drives human life, the ‘two eternities' of ‘Under Ben Bulben': the primary representing the One, the macrocosm, the race, the collective, the objective, truth, and knowledge, which strives with and against the antithetical representing the Many, the microcosm, the soul, the individual, the subjective, beauty and creativity.
