There may be a conceptual one.

There's this narrative that the Light is about a set destiny, predestination, order, stagnation, while the Void is about multiple possibilities, freedom, everything-is-true, madness.

Which state more closely resembles freedom, multiple possibilities? Life. Organic life, ever-evolving, ever-changing, relentlessly adapting. Which one more closely resembles the perfect stagnation that the Light supposedly wants? Death. Eternal slumber.

I must say, however, that I don't think they were already planning this Light/Void narrative back when Chronicles was first being written. The way Light and Void are described in the first book doesn't fit the later lore.
