|“||I am Anti-Life, the Beast of Judgment. I am the dark at the end of everything. The end of universes, gods, worlds...of everything||„|
|~ Choronzon, a Duke of Hell, describing Anti-Life|
The Anti-Life Equation is a fundamental part of reality, the antithesis of life and free will. It is part of the Source, and hearing it spoken aloud has been described as a "noise devoid of meaning, frequency of symbols defining nothing, burrowing into thoughts like a worm...a void forming, filling with one awful thought...'I submit.'" Users of the Equation gain various abilities, chief among them the power to dominate all free will.
Fragments of the Equation have been found in various humans on Earth, and one, Sonny Sumo, even possessed the whole. It was inherent to the creation of the Antimatter Universe and is bonded to the Anti-Monitor, ruler of that reality.
While Anti-Life is primarily sought after and used as a reality-altering mathematical formula, it can be found embodied in the Anti-Life Entity.
In human terms, the Anti-Life Equation reads: "loneliness + alienation + fear + despair + self-worth ÷ mockery ÷ condemnation ÷ misunderstanding x guilt x shame x failure x judgment n=y where y=hope and n=folly, love=lies, life=death, self=dark side".

- Grant Morrison has referred to The Death of the New Gods as canon but clarified that the Source is a non-dual being and cannot be split, meaning Anti-Life should not be scaled to the Source itself.
