Mods - this post supports a key tenet which I will use as a reference point in a future post. Please don't remove as 'off-topic', as it lays the
groundwork for further discussion relating directly to the OPs presentation of modern political affiliation with spiritual powers.
- I have to say - your theory regarding the 'one set of ETs playing both sides' strikes me as dangerously uninformed. You
are obviously lucid and intelligent; I noticed you work with tarot and astrology (I'm not a Bible-basher here to condemn you for such things btw).
However, the mysteries of life, prophecy, good & evil, life after death and so forth are a lot deeper than what you are alluding to with the whole
'good cop/bad cop' scenario.
As someone who has witnessed first-hand the demonic forces sneaking around this ol' universe (seen during very traumatic exorcisms, at which I was an
assistant and 'medium' for the powers doing the 'casting out') - I can assure you that the noble spirits on the side of 'Light', are most
certainly nothing to do with the foul, bestial & utterly depraved spirits of darkness
. The noble angelics are powerful elementals who are
themselves spiritually pure, adhering to principles of virtue in the face of darkness.
There is a grudging respect afforded by the demonic spirits to the 'Powers of Light' (I dislike using that term, as it's so frequently misused to
portray some sort of fuzzy, cuddly - essentially childish - 'love everyone, there's no such thing as evil' ideology). The grudging respect I speak
of arises not from any sense of affinity or kinship - it comes merely from a cowardly fear; they know what can be done to punish them for their vile
acts against the natural order of the cosmos.
Please don't make comments like the last one you made, without first having researched a bit more into demonology - and perhaps having visited some
of the most high security psychiatric facilities in the Western world. Demonically obsessed individuals commit the majority of the most heinous,
sadistic, torturous crimes known to mankind.
They are often incarcerated and heavily sedated for the remainder of their lifetime, simply because human power to 'kick them out' or otherwise
control their behaviour is extremely limited. We therefore resort to inhibiting the body they occupy - even this may sometimes not work effectively;
it depends on the power of the entity involved.
Western medical practice doesn't accommodate the necessary belief in spiritual realities, which is pre-requisite if one is to obtain control over the
dark entities. If a proper exorcist were brought in, many (though not all) life-long patients would be freed from mental incarceration in their own
primal brains. Ultimately (should they remain free from possession) the majority of those exorcised would be be safe to release into society, though
strict monitoring would be necessary at first while they become accustomed to the self-discipline necessary to keep the dark spirits at bay.
But - can you see any reform of that sort happening in the West..? Me neither. Which is why, until we wake up to the reality of evil as a tangible
force and not just a human abstract of behaviour (which it can also be, don't get me wrong - humans are capable of being just as evil as demons), we
will never be mature enough as a species to become 'enlightened' as a whole.
