Actually it is ideas that change the brain, how it functions and it's perception of itself and the world around it. Just look at the living world
where people can get indoctrinated so bad they blindly follow the cult leader. It is possible for people to undergo radical personality changes within
a period of time, just as it appears to happen in possessions.
Deny the theory of possession, or anything that might lead to the theory of a nonphysical human spirit as something inhabiting and controlling a
physical body and those braincells which would enable one to experience it would never form in the brain and so one can go on for all of his/her life
without ever having to deal with it ever, which I think is a good thing and it should be that way for most people, like a kind of defense that
doesn't even need to be constructed.
There is something to say for opening that door by believing in the possibility to learn more about the human spirit and what is out there, if only to
learn how to deal with it properly (or not going nuts). When something happens, then at least a person would be prepared instead of being taken by
surprise after which they typically go nuts/psychotic.
I don't believe in possession like most believers do, I believe it's not what it appears because people don't have enough information (about mind,
body, soul) to properly interpret such things but I am convinced there is more to it. Most importantly to be convinced of possession actually allows
for it to happen. Once you know you can see it happening all around you. Luckily none of the people who have others with them ever notice they do, nor
do those with them want anything to happen because of which the possessed might notice or it might break the delicate spell in a second. Which is one
of the reasons there appears to be no signs of it anywhere, it's all subjective.
Anyway, I would never allow walkins, in fact I don't trust anyone who doesn't appear to have a physical body of themselves. Not that I don't
believe there isn't 'good' out there but they would understand distrust.
