But I'm also not sure that this solves the problem. If you say that the Nephandi are there to destroy the universe because the Weaver has put it out of balance, that seems to be making the Weaver, or the Technocracy, the objectively evil element. And then you still don't seem to have true relativism, because you still have objective evil, don't you?
The Weaver's POV is that the Wyrm was a threat to reality and needed to be imprisoned. The Technocracy thinks that a rational worldview is superior, for what should be obvious reasons, but essentially amounts to logical positivism.

Order is stasis. Rebirth is destruction. Freedom is chaos. It all depends on your point of view.

The thing is that the Nephandi still want to destroy the universe, which most people, including the traditions and the conventions aren't going to see as a good thing. But the other side of that is a view that maintaining or modifying a sick universe rather than letting it be reborn is misguided.
