    Default "The Devil" as "The self" or Id

    The term "The Devil" is often used today as a metaphor for "The self" "the lower self" "the subconscious" "the body" "the Id" "the shadow" et-cetera, as opposed to a single deity of evil. The shadow, or Ba, is the usually self aware part of us that we share our bodies with symbiotically. Usually shadows inhabit areas of the body below the head or sometimes the back of the head. These "Symbiotes" have their own way of communicating with each other and their own social life. Try listening to Metallica's song "Sad But True" in this context. Most of us have symbiotic relationships with these beings and some of us will one day ascend (or descend) to become one. Others of us are their own shadows, as some animals are. "The Devil" can be a friend or an enemy, but unfortunately they sometimes view us as pawns or livestock. If you want to get your shadow's attention, try using a pendulum.

    That would explain why I have unconscious habit of refering to "I" as "we" when in conversation. Which has been pointed out to me on several occasions.

    I read somewhere that our mind is madeup of about 32ish different beings? Relating to kabalah i think, honestly cant remember.

    When an idea is formed it passes down a chain like:

    Should i eat that poptart now?
    Yes im hungry!
    But then i wont have any for later...
    Thats ok because im hungry now!!
    Maybe eat half now and half later?
    Nope...Thats out of the question! lets eat it all now.

    I guess i might not be mking much sense.

    Hahaha! that is funny. I think of it kinda like Eddie Brock and his simbiote becoming "Venom". Some people may have 32 selves, but most do not. MMM, Poptarts!

    Anything "against the herd", guilty of Free Thought, Independence, Great Spiritual Authority and Power is a representation of Satan to me.

    Which has a tendency of manifesting through Experience. (either your own, or that of others)
