So Sha means Light to the Draenei because their only experience with Sha are beings of Light, while it's come to mean Darkness to the Pandaren because their only experience is with beings of Darkness? What fascinates me most about this prospect is the history of the Draenei, who have gone through much self-purification and greatly overemphasize the need to be excellent to each other, mostly as a reactionary to the measure of the Burning Legion's corruption, all compared to the Pandarens who merely seek a balance and inner peace to avoid spawning their Sha. I am curious to know if they sought good to the extreme to avoid their Sha if the naaru would have revealed themselves to them. Or perhaps they seek not these things because they do know the truth behind Mu'sha and An'she and view them as an extreme as well.This and your WRUP answer both remind me of Han Solo before we meet him in the movies. There was a species whose voice could cause ecstasy in humans. They played this off as a religious cult and, needless to say, many people were willing to suffer greatly to experience this ecstasy on a regular basis. While Han wasn't one of them, he did deal with them on a regular basis and watch this from the outside in a manner that fundamentally changed him. If the Pandarens have such a perspective, the battle of Light and Darkness will be very interesting indeed as they have no desire for such external beings -at all-.
