I suppose this would also be good point to humbly note, that I too have had some mild position changes over the past 5 years on ATS. The line between what is a 'being' and what is a phenomenon created by a being, is a very tough nut to crack.. and in fact may be the 'smoking gun' of 'spirituality' as a whole. When i first came to ATS, I was big on parasites/symbiotes.. and I certainly still see why I was.. but I find the 'answer' is probably far more nuanced than that, as humans too are just temporary beings.... not really any different than other temporary beings who aren't fully real. Humans are not fully real, at least compared to more enduring forms of life.
From your first post in this thread, do you believe that this sentient intelligence would be misconstrued as demonic?
Last question; Has your original stance / hypothesis changed since the first post on this thread in 2016?
