=== Anti-Investiture ===
Physical matter is known to have a counterpart called antimatter - matter composed of antiparticles that share many properties with the particles of ordinary matter, but manifest some of them in an opposite way (e.g. a proton and an antiproton have the same mass, but opposite electric charges and magnetic moments). Raboniel describes this in terms of axi with opposite polarities.{{book ref|sa4|97}} A similar relationship exists between Investiture and anti-Investiture in the cosmere. When Investiture combines with its corresponding anti-Investiture, they are both annihilated, resulting in the release of a large amount of energy.{{book ref|sa4|97}} The reaction seems to be more violent when the two are brought together under pressure.{{book ref|sa4|97}}

The only known forms of anti-Investiture are [[anti-Stormlight]] and [[anti-Voidlight]]. It is unknown whether hybrid Lights and Shards outside of the Rosharan system have anti-Investitures of their own. [[Khriss]] states in the Ars Arcanum that, though long theorized, the anti-Lights are her first evidence of an anti-Investiture.{{book ref|sa4|part=ars}}
