It's interesting that you say that. Lucifer as a life force sure changes the context of many pieces of literature. Is it proclaimed that there is only one life force or are their many? What is the nature of this life force?
One could consider pain to be evil but if one were to unknowingly sit on a fire it would be pain that caused us to react before any further harm could be done. I wonder if this is similar to the Luciferian life force?
So "Lucifer" is nothing more than an ancient Latin name for the morning star, the bringer of light. That can be confusing for Christians who identify Christ himself as the morning star, a term used as a central theme in many Christian sermons. Jesus refers to himself as the morning star in Revelation 22:16: "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star."
Theosophists call it "fohat" as well.
Hah! What a mouthful, unless shriners do actually donate their caps to schitzos.
Not quite. Lucifer is just another name for Jesus Christ. It's a word only used once in the King James translation (and no where else) and it refers to the planet Venus, which they then called the "morning star" because it was visible in the heavens roughly three hours before dawn. (Lucifer translates from the latin as "Light-Bringer".) As the star in the sky was a portent of the new dawn, so too was Christ leading us to God, if you believe that particularly mythology.

Lucifer and Satan are different. Lucifer is an ancient Italian god who came far before the Christian Satan. when the Catholic church was trying to convert the Pagan peoples of Europe, they wanted to demonize their gods, so they called Satan Lucifer in some parts of the Bible.

I disagree with those who say he is senile. He looks and sounds quite aware to me.
I think he's just having some fun with the interviewer.
