Relatively recent in human evolution is the splitting of ourselves into two pieces, like good and evil, like inside me and outside of me, like natural
versus alien. Odd how arbitrary the line we draw is. I know when we start out in life we come up with the theory that we are located inside our
bodies, and that everything else is "not us", but there are books in every bookstore in america to educate you out of that, I think of myself as in
all people and in all things across all of time, gods growing up, so some people won't listen just because of that detail,
But if unity of all things across all time is too much, what about unity of the personality? Of course there are the monotheistic religions where
you're encouraged to split off some part of yourself and separate it, call it alien, call it evil, and it is junior shamanism, I think, truly a god
not yet grown up, who wants to add to his or her own power by cutting something out of themselves. Like the junior shamanism hitler, and muamar
ghadaffi make, thinking they can improve their country by killing some portion of their population, always a mistake in history when you look back at
it, but common junior shaman mistake.
I had an idea while watching "Terminator 3". Man against machine. Man creates machine but then machine gets carried away and threatens to takeover,
and we of course all root for mankind to win the battle. Our human brains have a reptilian core, then a mammalian cortex that surrounds it. What came
first? The core! Then should we be rooting in any way for the cortex to take over, against the core? Wouldn't that be like machines taking over man?
Core vs. Cortex. The core came first, it should be the cortex for the core; machines for man. The word "catholic" means all inclusive. But they
exclude demons (not to mention other people's dissenting ways of life, though that doesn't apply to me). Should they be "exorcizing" demons?
"Destroying" demons? "Aborting" demons (as they say Judas did)? What came first, demons or religion? Core or cortex? Man or machine? Shouldn't it
be, then, religion for the demons, rather than trying to kick the ladder out from under itself? This "call" to "heaven" that my brother in law
speaks of, why is this something we should listen to? Maybe it's like we're all pine trees, in a field, and a lumberjack comes along and "calls"
several of the trees, to "give up" their roots in the soil, the underworld, and fly away to a "better place" where all the other trees that have
been disappearing from the field have already gone? We are from the earth, this is our home, and I’m not going anywhere. I love the human world, and
I love the demon world, these are all creatures in the same situation, all in need of help. No one should be excluded in true perfection. My
experience of devout Catholicism taught me that Jesus is powerful magic, a powerful shaman, but how fair is it? How one‐sided? Kill the demons?
Abort them? Exorcize them? They are part of the everything! And a truly magical, beatific jet can 'hold high the broken bowl' and bring
enlightenment to all, demons included. The bible progresses like a beautiful dream, , but I think it leaves out realities so fundamental that it is as
if you got up in the morning and planned your week without allowing for food or sleep. The need for these things would gradually creep in and obstruct
the fulfillment of the original plan. And so I think it is with the demons, controversial and unpleasant as this idea may be. So do you "exorcize"
the hunger and the sleepiness? Fight it and pray for it to go? Wouldn't it be more effective to allocate it its proper place in the creation of the
It is as if the universe itself, made up of brilliant balls of light and vast swaths of darkness as well as the ultimately dark 'black holes',
decided to pray only for light. Beautiful suns would light up, and at first it would seem like wonderful magic, but something about this is not right.
Darkness, even black holes, are an integral part of this universe we are so graciously presented with. Could it be this universe is our truest
"bible", revealing unimaginable beauty and power, as an infinite guide and even a role‐model ‐ the human spirit as a microcosm of the universe,
which contains within it two opposites, and uses it's very being as a unification of these opposites? "
Billerica is a small, sleepy New England town, 26 miles northwest of Boston, a bedroom community full of quiet, friendly working class people who
commute to Boston; there's a newly renovated catholic church, and just across the street a newly renovated park for the many kids in the town. The
church was usually relatively empty during mass, although a few times a year they would have events that involve the kids, and all the parents and
relatives come, and pack the church. On one such Sunday morning, I set my plan into action. I quietly walked around and locked the doors in the back
of the church, then the two side doors, during the mass. When the consecration of the Eucharist came, and the whole church was quiet, their attention
fixed on the round host that the priest was holding up, (the sacred point where they say the bread becomes the body of Christ), I pulled out an
automatic machine gun from under my coat, and yelled "Jesus is a demon!!!" and fired, first at the priest, watching his head explode, then firing
through the panicked screams in a circle at everyone, tossing grenades into the crowds that were growing by the locked doors, and setting off
pre‐planted bombs in the corner vestibules that ended up partially collapsing the church roof. Ultimately, none inside the church survived. The only
witnesses were the handful of parents and young kids across the street at the playground, who stood transfixed as the first exiting bullets shattered
the stained glass windows, then the explosions and collapsing structure had them turn and run like it was another nine‐eleven. The town’s two
on‐duty police cars arrived several minutes after the roof collapsed, and there was nothing for them to do but watch the dust settle. But as I had
finished the clips in my two automatic weapons, and was pretty convinced I had achieved the total destruction that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had
only dreamed of, I stood in the center of the church and began to rise up into the air, spinning slightly as I rose, and I escaped through a small
hole in the roof, just as it was collapsing. Absolutely none witnessed the miraculous escape. Moments later, I came back down out of the sky, arriving
on Golgotha, the mountain peak where Jesus’ crucifixion was currently taking place. It is said that here the skull of Adam was buried, and here that
the blood of the dying Jesus was to consecrate that skull as it fell to the ground. But it hadn't all happened yet. Apparently I had gotten there
just as the crucifixion was beginning. And I was way out of scale, like the green giant compared to the three crosses and the surrounding Romans. I
immediately reached down and ripped Jesus from the cross, and he looked up at me as he began to run away, down the hill and back toward Jerusalem,
looking scared. In the distance I could see the great city, but it suddenly became a blur as a huge wave seemed to be coming out of it and moving
toward the running Jesus, and toward Golgotha. Jesus kept running toward the city, and in moments was overtaken by the wave, and then the wave got
closer, I could see that it was huge, at least 90 feet high, like a tidal wave, but it wasn't made of water, and it wasn't quite sand, it was....
The largest hoard of maniacal horrific demons I’ve ever seen! And then the wave vanished as quickly as it had appeared, and I could see Jerusalem
again, but Jesus was gone. My vision went black. Then an amazing thing happened. I 'woke up', appearing in the landscape of a dream I must have had
twenty years ago, and hadn't remembered even the morning after it happened, had never glimpsed it again till now, but all of a sudden it was all
clear, as if it had just happened. I was amazed, and wondered if there were other 'dream places' here ‐ and then I saw a huge landscape, made up
of hundreds of different scenes, all dreams I suddenly remembered i'd had over the course of my life, some from distant childhood, but most I had
never remembered until now. And never, even during those dreams, had I seen the entire picture together, until now. It was all clear, all the
different dream episodes made sense as never before: this was all an elaborate prison, and I was only one of millions of inhabitants, prisoners, and
there were guards, and there was one warden, huge, like a giant, and very powerful, all‐seeing; and I knew who it was, so I stood up tall and yelled
again: "Jesus is a demon!" i was thrown back into my cell‐area, not actually enclosed except by filth, miserable crowds who were mostly family
members from my demon family that I somewhat recognized, and I had a blanket on me that was covered with red things that looked like leeches, and they
were biting and stinging me, causing quite a distressing discomfort. Several characters around me were also suffering from something similar, though I
could tell I was at the center, and was experiencing the lion's share of the bites and stings. "what are you doing ?!? You're making it worse for
everyone, why don't you just sit down and shut up!!", my neighbor said, but I just kept rolling around on the ground, swatting the bites and stings.
When a few others started joining in their chastising of me for getting us all in trouble, I got up and addressed my demon family members: "we're
all in jail, and Jesus is the warden, a powerful and evil demon. This is an example of god being hijacked by demons, I told you it could be done!"
they quieted down and began to listen. I continued, "his lies separate everything! He takes a hostile and antagonistic stance toward demons,
separates humanity into two halves, the better to conquer us! Jesus and his other creation, Satan, the two 'sons of man', tearing the human spirit
asunder, so that we cannot walk hand in hand, but will rip ourselves apart, in every way. Look at what they're doing to us... They tell us 'here are
all the mechanisms of modernity, but you have no insight or wisdom as to how to implement it'; or 'here's radiant, humanist wisdom, but it's
hopeless to try to govern modernity with it.'; or 'here's Christian culture, here's Islamic culture, and there's only room enough for one of
you'; or 'here are men, they're from mars, and here are women, they're from Venus'; or 'here's black magic, attack the light, here's white
magic, resist the black', they give us songs to sing with slogans like 'we'll keep on fighting till the end, no time for losers, we are the
champions'; when humanity finally comes to an end, we won't all go down together; rather it'll be precisely when we've completely torn ourselves
in two, that we'll truly come to an end." "Look at that bible; he didn't even cover his tracks! When he commanded the demons to get out of some
poor 'sinner', some of the people watching, who understood demon technology, said 'he must be a demon, for look how the demons obey him', and what
was his reply? It was 'a house divided cannot stand, so how could I be a demon if I’m fighting with other demons?' look, its irony, he's playing
with us, he knows we can't stand divided, and he knows that demons typically attack other demons, and he wants everything for himself. It's a
typical demon‐type lie!" "Look at what he offers 'his people', those who are willing to bow down to him, worship him, sacrifice to him ‐ he
offers them comfort, happiness, material success... This is eudemonism, it's in the dictionary, judging what's good by what's most comfortable, by
what's 'nice', and that’s typical demon technology. He's good at it too. If you want to be a simple eudemon, your best bet is to worship
Jesus." "But attack him, and see what happens ‐ he fights back, and he employs large scale versions of our typical demon technology (but before
you do, you better make sure your ready... I'm right now sustaining the heaviest demon blows to my stomach and immune system that I’ve ever
experienced, and I’m lucky I built up to this slowly, over the decades, by my play fighting with all of you!" "so what's he up to, who is this
out of control uber‐demon? I've seen it, I know what he's doing. He wants to steal your darkness, your core, (as opposed to your cortex, which he
intends to leave you with, though he intends you to have it hollowed out, having taken your solid dark infinite core and left you with a light,
'contrite' core. What's he want with our cores? I have learned that demons are energy, and that energy can become matter by passing through a Higgs
field, which is generated at the core of each astral body and springs up through the ground of each planet. And there are plenty of free and beautiful
planets, but why is earth so desolate, compared to the three other earths that we demons know? Well my friends, I’ve charted earth's Higgs field,
and I went with a team of underground creatures called hyperthermobarophiles, and when we came to the underground spring, we found him! Jesus! He's
sitting on it!!! And he's getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger....." "But not to worry, my friends. We can survive. Why? Those of us who have
double‐souls, one human and one demon, we will make it. We have life, Jesus does not!!!!!
