Recently I posted a legend that was taught to me in which, the conclusion formed regarding possessions by demons (like in the movie Exorcist). Is the result not of some demon which has somehow escaped Hell and is terrifying poor human but rather, a very terrestrial parasite. This very small animal makes his way to the brain where it attaches itself and begins feeding. Certain chemicals in the brain is what it can metabolize while others are in fact poisonous, so by some means (probably by releasing some of its own chemicals) the human brain reacts, by engaging in the behaviors, consistent with what is often referred to as demon possessions.

Remove the parasite and the only thing that has changed is that the person is no longer afflicted but these behaviors which, are often defined under the context of being paranormal are inherent to the human, not the
Parasite. Being "possessed by a demon" causes death and what the exorcist does essentially is create a condition in which the brain generates other chemicals which are poisonous to the parasite. S/he does this by taking the persons mind off the effect cause by the parasite. Today we know of one parasite that actually is very difficult to treat using modern methods the idea that one or two exist which can defy modern forma of treatment is not absurd. If correct this means that what we understand as paranormal abilities is inherent, the question now being how to develop this without vomiting pea soup and insisting that what is bad about our religions; that in Hell some can get out and when they do, they terrify people.

When looking at distribution patterns as well as identifying familial patterns with respect to the allegations those individuals can be possessed by humans? It is apparent that the cause could potentially be some kind of parasite.

Beyond this I am of the opinion that each of us are a part of some very elaborate and complex puzzle. We each have our own individual path to wisdom and to achieve this state requires focus.

Any thoughts?


The lipoprotein that covers each cell in your body vibrates at 10^11 Hertz.  A parasite vibrates at around 30,000 Hertz.  One parasite does not make much discomfort.  A little skin tag won't hurt you, but you multiply that skin tag by hundreds or thousands, then comes a discomfort and the body starts reacting to it by sending its attack cells.  It is not the parasite that defies the treatment.  If the parasite completely overtakes the cell, the parasite then has the protection of the cell.  Your body can destroy any kind of parasite that enters it if you have a good immune system.

It is me!

Why is it that some folks,
when they talk about going to Heaven,
they do not mention sitting down and talking to God.

Any thoughts?


Gd isnt always percieved as a figure you can talk to, he's not necessarily a 'dude in the sky.'  Perhaps in heaven one simply becomes part of Gds essence, there is no need to talk to him because you are part of him and have already assumed the wealth of wisdom once you have died and your soul is no longer limited by the mechanics of the human body.

greggK.....

There are known parasites which presently require about a month to get out of our systems with proper medical care (it consumes muscle). There are others which respond better to medical care but access to such medications in many parts of the world is limited. Parasites can be very large there is for example the intestinal parasite that can literally become slightly larger than a humans or animals intestinal track.


Wyvernkeeper.......

There is no reason to understand that it is possible to have a simple conversation with God and I do not feel it has anything to do with some "dude in the sky." The question of complexity from our standpoint is probably not applicable to a being capable of creating this Universe.

Any thoughts?

PS: True perfection does not exist without the imperfect for only then does one encompass all things.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

Agreed, I no longer think of God as a person or being really.

Well, I think God has a form because we were created 'in His image.'

We may be fashioned after his likeness and we may become the God we see in our image.  But, there are other 'intelligent' species out there.  The dolphin, the porpoise; what about the sheepdog, the carrier pigeon.  They are wise enough to know what to do for food.  Maybe the path is survival.  The path to wisdom is survival.

To paraphrase William Blake, the road of excess lead to the palace to wisdom . . . or the flophouse of regret.
