I think you meant two adjectival verbs, not two adverbs.

The problem in feeling is that in English "pure, negative energy" 
probably isn't what you mean. Do you actually mean "pure energy, 
negative energy," or do you mean "purely negative energy"? Is it the 
energy that is pure or the negativity?

*ngIngchu'bogh HoS, qarIt.*
