Masha Allah. Your entire paragraph speaks volumes. 
the question is - why do they promote these things? Why promote transhumanism and DNA tampering?

My guess would be for greater control (through things like Neuralink) and greater (eventual) profits.

The promotion of Satan is obvious - they worship him

@313_Waiter, There's ongoing debate among comic book aficionados regarding who's the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Universe/Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some will say, "Thor", others will argue Hulk, but a case can be made that Dr. Strange is Numero Uno do to his secretive skills in black magic. There's no limit on how strong the Hulk can become as he gets madder and madder. Hulk's strength can theoretically surpass that of Thor or Zeus if he perpetually remains in a state of anguish/irritation/pain. In Incredible Hulk Vol. 1, #301 Hulk rages out of control, obtains godlike power, causes unspeakable damage and none of The Avengers can stop him. Dr. Strange is summoned and he banishes Hulk/Bruce Banner to an alternate/crossroads dimension. In World War Hulk, he's banished by The Illuminati to a parallel universe. (The purpose of this post was simply to demonstrate the high-ranking position of the fictitious occult practitioner /i.e. Dr. Strange/ in the Marvel Universe)

More Eye of Horus/All-Seeing Eye symbolism...The Eye of Agamotto "Agamotto, a powerful mystic being and one of Doctor Strange's three Vishanti, is said to have used the Eye during his time as Sorcerer Supreme of the Earth dimension. The Eye's origins are currently unknown, but there are theories of how it came into existence. Some believe that it was discovered by Agamotto among the seas and stars, where it had drifted for ages. Others claim that it was created by Agamotto himself, which makes sense when the Eye's powers are compared to those of "the All-Seeing." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_Agamotto

Bryan Singer, director of Bohemian Rhapsody, is accused by 4 men of sexual assault

https://www.vox.com/latest-news/2019/1/23/18194224/bryan-singer-sexual-assault-underage-boys

 

In a report published in the Atlantic, four men have accused director Bryan Singer of sexually assaulting them while they were underage. The alleged assaults took place in California between 1997 and 1999.

Singer is the credited director of Bohemian Rhapsody and is known for directing films like X-Men, X2, and The Usual Suspects.

The Atlantic’s report details the Hollywood circles Singer was reportedly part of during the late ’90s, the boys he met and parties he threw during that time period, the allegations of sexual assault of underage boys, and an alleged pattern of abuse that wrecked the accusers’ lives. It was written by Alex French and Maximillian Potter — a writer at large and editor at large for Esquire, respectively — who say they spent 12 months reporting the story and spoke to more than 50 sources about the allegations.

Singer’s lawyer Andrew Brettler denied the allegations against his client, stating to French and Potter that Singer has never been arrested or convicted of any crime and that he categorically denies ever having sex with, or a preference for, underage men. Singer, through his lawyer, told Vox the story is a “homophobic smear piece [that] has been conveniently timed to take advantage of [Bohemian Rhapsody’s] success” and that it was written by “a homophobic journalist who has a bizarre obsession with me dating back to 1997.”

French and Potter tell the stories of four men who had previously never spoken publicly about their allegations against Singer.

One of those men is Victor Valdovinos, who told French and Potter that when he was 13, he worked as an extra on Singer’s 1998 film Apt Pupil. Valdovinos says that during a day of filming a locker room scene that required partial nudity, Singer molested him multiple times. Per the Atlantic:

According to Valdovinos, Singer reached through the towel flaps and “grabbed my genitals and started masturbating it.” The director also “rubbed his front part on me,” Valdovinos alleges. “He did it all with this smile.” Valdovinos says that Singer told him, “You’re so good-looking … I really want to work with you … I have a nice Ferrari … I’m going to take care of you.”

“I was frozen. Speechless,” Valdovinos continues. “He came back to where I was in the locker room throughout the day to molest me.”

The other three men in the story were given pseudonyms for fear of retaliation. One of those men, identified as “Andy,” says he was 15 when he met Singer through Marc Collins-Rector, a purported friend of Singer’s and a convicted sex offender. Andy told French and Potter that he and Singer had sex the first night they met, and multiple times after:

“I just remember how loud the moaning was. I remember thinking, God, there’s a big group of people downstairs hanging out in the living room, and they can probably hear him. That bothered me, so I stuck my hand over his mouth or in his mouth just to stop it. When we went downstairs, it was really awkward. I just acted like it was no big thing.”

Another man, identified as “Ben,” told the writers he met Singer at one of Singer’s parties. Ben said he was 17 or 18 when Singer coerced him to perform oral sex on him.

“He would stick his hands down your pants without your consent,” Ben told French and Potter. “He was predatory in that he would ply people with alcohol and drugs and then have sex with them.” Ben also said “it wasn’t a hold-you-down-and-rape-you situation.”

 

The fourth man, identified as “Eric,” alleges that he and Singer had sex when Eric was 17, and that he witnessed a system in which young boys were brought to Singer and his friends to curry favor.

“If you weren’t young and cute enough to be their boy, you could still ingratiate yourself by bringing boys to them,” Eric said.

Bryan Singer has previously been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple men

These are not the first allegations of sexual misconduct that have surfaced against Singer.

In 2014, two men filed lawsuits against Singer accusing him of sexually assaulting them while they were underage. Those lawsuits were later dismissed.

Then in 2017, Singer denied accusations by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, a 31-year-old man from Washington, who filed a lawsuit saying that Singer raped him when he was 17, on a yacht sailing from Lake Union to Lake Washington in Seattle.

And in October 2018, Singer posted a message on Instagram warning of a “negative article” from Esquire about him and implied that it was a publicity-seeking opportunity timed to the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, which came out on November 2.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Singer was fired from the project in December 2017, a few weeks before filming ended, after he clashed with star Rami Malek and disappeared from the set. Singer said his absence was due to wanting to care for a sick parent. Because of Directors Guild of America rules, only one director or team can be credited for directing a film, and Singer remains the sole credited director for Bohemian Rhapsody.

It appears that Singer’s October Instagram post may have been referencing Potter and French, who are both named on Esquire’s masthead. Though Potter and French originally reported the story for Esquire, it was later brought to the Atlantic, where, according to a spokesperson for the magazine, it went through the publication’s legal vetting and fact-checking process.

Singer, in a statement made through his lawyer, disparaged the piece, calling into question the credibility of the writers, accusers, and editors:

The last time I posted about this subject, Esquire magazine was preparing to publish an article written by a homophobic journalist who has a bizarre obsession with me dating back to 1997. After careful fact-checking and, in consideration of the lack of credible sources, Esquire chose not to publish this piece of vendetta journalism. That didn’t stop this writer from selling it to The Atlantic. It’s sad that The Atlantic would stoop to this low standard of journalistic integrity. Again, I am forced to reiterate that this story rehashes claims from bogus lawsuits filed by a disreputable cast of individuals willing to lie for money or attention. And it is no surprise that, with Bohemian Rhapsody being an award-winning hit, this homophobic smear piece has been conveniently timed to take advantage of its success.

The writers of the piece responded, and said that the piece was fact-checked at Esquire but then Hearst executives killed the article. The move then let them publish at The Atlantic:

Singer has not been involved in promoting Bohemian Rhapsody on the awards circuit. The movie was nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture on January 22, and its star Malek was nominated for Best Actor. It previously won Best Drama at the Golden Globes.

Also on January 22, Malek distanced himself from Singer, telling People that he “was not aware of” any allegations against Singer before working on Bohemian Rhapsody.

Singer is still slated to direct an upcoming Red Sonja remake.

Bryan Singer’s Former Employee, Partner Details Years of Alleged Abuse

https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/bryan-singer-abuse-allegations-blake-stuerman-1274239/

Blake Stuerman spent four years in the filmmaker's orbit after they met in 2009, when Stuerman was 18 and Singer was 43

 

BLAKE STUERMAN, A former employee and partner of Bryan Singer’s, detailed the alleged abuse he suffered and witnessed during his four-year relationship with the director in a new piece for Variety. 

Stuerman was reportedly involved with Singer between 2009 and 2013; they met when Stuerman was 18 and Singer was 43. In his first-person account, Stuerman detailed Singer’s alleged abusive and manipulative behavior — especially when it came to money and sex — as well as his reported heavy drinking and angry outbursts. Stuerman also described witnessing Singer allegedly assault someone in 2012.

Variety corroborated parts of Stuerman’s story through documents, photos, emails, and texts that Stuerman provided, as well as interviews with 20 people (one of whom corroborated the assault story and was present during the alleged incident as well). In response to a summary of Stuerman’s piece, Singer’s lawyer, Andrew Brettler, shared a lengthy response in which he called the allegations “uncorroborated, inflammatory, and highly defamatory.”

“The types of allegations that Mr. Steurman [sic] now is leveling against Mr. Singer are nothing more than self-serving and conclusory statements with absolutely no evidentiary support,” Brettler said. “Mr. Stuerman is angry and upset that he allegedly did not receive the ‘credit’ that he thought he deserved on Mr. Singer’s films… And, most of all, he is angry and upset that Mr. Singer is no longer funding Mr. Stuerman’s jet-setting lifestyle and supporting Mr. Stuerman financially, as he had done for so many years.” (Brettler did not immediately return Rolling Stone’s request for comment.)

 

Singer has faced numerous accusations of sexual assault and abuse over the years, all of which he has denied. He has never been arrested or charged with a crime, although has faced civil suits: One accusing him of raping a minor in 2014 was withdrawn, while another accusing him of raping a 17-year-old boy was settled for $150,000 in 2019. Singer has not directed a movie since the 2018 Oscar-winning Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody (from which he was fired). 

In his piece for Variety, Stuerman says he was introduced to Singer in March 2019, not long after his 18th birthday. He was working as an assistant scenic designer and said Gary Goddard — the producer of two of the shows Stuerman was working on — introduced him to Singer (while Stuerman hadn’t heard of Singer, he knew of his blockbusters like X-Men and Superman Returns). Their first night out together, Stuerman said, was with a large group at the upscale sushi restaurant Nobu 57; Stuerman says Singer invited everyone back to his hotel suite afterward and that Singer “asked to see my driver’s license because he couldn’t believe I was actually 18.”

While Stuerman left Singer’s hotel that night, he says they soon began spending more time together. At one dinner, Stuerman — who’d never drunk alcohol before — said Singer began insisting he drink a little: “Just try it. It’s OK. You’re safe. I relented and took a sip of his drink. It burned my throat. He insisted I have the rest. And then he ordered another.” 

That night, Stuerman said, was the first time he was drunk and the night ended with him alone with Singer in a hotel suite. “My chest grows tight now just thinking about it. You can imagine what happened next. I didn’t know I was allowed to say no. I didn’t know that alcohol was affecting my decision-making ability.” (Brettler, Singer’s lawyer, did not address the claim that Singer got Stuerman drunk before their first sexual encounter in his response to Variety.)

Stuerman said Singer soon convinced him to move out to Los Angeles if he was serious about pursuing a film career. It was at this point, Stuerman added, that he learned about Singer’s “reputation for liking very young-looking men.”

He continued: “Older men would lead groups of twinks, like me, into Bryan’s house. It was expected that these men had already vetted these boys to make sure they were legal. He would come hang out for a bit, make sure everyone had drinks, and then he’d pick the one, two, or more who he liked and we’d see them an hour or three later. I was often one of them.”

Stuerman said he worked hard to prove himself to Singer, and said, at the time, he felt “incredibly lucky to have such a talented and powerful man as my mentor.” Stuerman said Singer would take him not just to expensive dinners and parties, but also film sets, post-production sessions, development meetings, and more (it was around this time, Stuerman adds, that Singer became “[Edited Out] you [Edited Out] you [Edited Out] you rich” thanks in part to the success of the medical drama House, for which he was an executive producer). In return, though, Stuerman said, Singer often expected sex.

“As we got closer, he expected even more,” Stuerman wrote. “If he didn’t find a boy out at the bars that night, I would have to be the boy. If I put up even a little bit of resistance, he’d get angry. Why would I throw my future away? If I wanted to leave I was welcome to, but I wouldn’t be allowed back. He would text me about sex: ‘Boy cum yeahhhhhhhhh!’”

The assault incident Stuerman describes allegedly took place in fall 2012 during a late-night party at the director’s home. Singer had already “passed out in his room,” Stuerman said, but returned angrily because the party was so loud. “He violently attacked one of the guests near me. I grabbed Bryan and took him back into the house. His eyes were wild and full of rage. I had never seen him like this before. We went to his room and he slammed the door. I found a shattered lamp on the floor and began picking up the pieces.”

At that point, Stuerman claims Singer told him, “I’ll [Edited Out]ing kill you if you leave me.” (Brettler did not address the assault allegation in his response to Variety.) 

Stuerman said he grew more fearful of Singer after that, but also more involved. He said he was formally on Singer’s payroll, worked on his various projects, and the two essentially lived together for long stretches. But Singer also grew more controlling, he said. Stuerman said he wasn’t allowed to date or “have sex with people of my choosing,” and if Stuerman hooked up with someone without Singer’s permission, Singer “berated me, and dangled my future in front of me.”

While working with Singer on X-Men: Days of Future Past in spring 2013, Stuerman said Singer’s “mental and emotional abuse… would frequently trigger panic attacks” (one even landed him in the emergency room, he claims). Stuerman, at one point, confronted Singer about his drinking, which allegedly enraged Singer. Stuerman said he nearly left after that moment but ultimately decided to stay. But after Stuerman accidentally overslept one morning — not missing any work, but brunch — he said a security guard showed up at his apartment and told him he needed to pack up and leave.

“To make sure you’re loyal and that you won’t leave, Bryan gives you a taste of having nothing,” Stuerman said. “He teaches you a lesson. Your credit card is frozen, and you’re expected to pay for yourself to get back home. It’s like a time out. It scares people into realizing what they’ll lose. I was told to lay low and wait a few days. Just let it blow over.”

But when he returned to Los Angeles, Stuerman decided to cut ties with Singer (a “separation agreement,” which included a “low five-figure payment” was reportedly reached). Over the next few years, Stuerman said he struggled to come to grips with the alleged abuse and often found himself defending Singer after sexual assault allegations surfaced in 2014. It was only after receiving therapy and treatment for abuse and PTSD, Stuerman said, “that I accepted what had actually happened.”

He continued: “I am a victim of abuse by a very powerful, very wealthy, and very sick man. I am a victim of Bryan Singer.”

Also, three cast members from the original X-Men 2000 series identify as bisexual or gay...1.) Anna Paquin came out as bisexual in 2010 according to People Magazine...2.) Ian McKellen is an atheist and an extremely active advocate of LGBTQIA rights...he came out in 1988 and regretted not coming out earlier...and of course 3.) Ellen/Elliot Page...she/he transitioned from woman to man in 2021...shortly after transitioning Page stated that she/he "will now be an inspiration to countless trans and non-binary people".

A key concept in Satanism/occultism/witchcraft/black magic etc. is the concept of inversion...inversion ties occultism, Satanism and homosexuality all together...the definition of inversion is to "reverse the order of something or to turn it inside out or upside down."...so the Satanist will invert the Christian cross or the pentagram for example...upright pentagram is an old symbol and has been used by many ancient cultures including: Jewish, nascent Christian (early alternative symbol to the cross), Greek, Samarian, Babylonian, Chinese etc....It (upward pentagram) has a 5,000 year old history and typically signifies justice, mercy, wisdom, wellbeing, balance, the five senses, five knightly virtues, man's dominion over the five elements, the five wounds of Christ, white magic, ascendance, God, supremacy of the spirit etc....an upside-down or inverted pentagram symbolizes the inversion the spiritual world, descent of spirit, matter reigning in over spiritual order./natural order...homosexual acts (especially sodomy) are hailed as acts of liberation in occult circles and are considered inversions of heterosexual practice...they're referred to as sex magic (sometimes spelled sex magick)…Aleister Crowley taught a tiered system of sexual practices that aid to unlock certain spiritual pursuits...8th Tier (or Degree) included autoeroticism (i.e. masturbatory) magical techniques...9th Degree included heterosexual magical techniques...10th Degree (i.e. the highest tier/degree) included homosexual/sodomy magical techniques.

@Eddie Avast WOW. Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
aleister Crowley is an interesting but scary man. Here’s a post that @Qa'im made on him:

Quote

Aleister Crowley was a 20th century occultist who (1) revolted against religious values, (2) reintroduced pagan deities in Western circles, (3) took part in sorcery, (4) had an affinity for Nazism, Marxism, Social Darwinism and Nietzsche (5) preached complete sexual freedom and advocated for deviant sexual practices, and ultimately (6) was an extreme, radical individualist. This was the most notorious occultist of our times; a devil.

Crowley’s entire philosophy centered on the idea that one should live, love, and exist exactly as they wanted without following the dictates of any central authority.

Devils are a tight-knit community that push one another deeper into misguidance. But what brings them the most pleasure is preying on naïve, unsuspecting people. So, let’s look at Crowley’s circle of influence:

1. Musical: The Beatles are probably the biggest musical influence of the 20th century. They shaped the generation. And Aleister Crowley was on the cover of their Sgt Pepper album. John Lennon was their connection to Crowley, and both preached the postmodern mantra, “do whatever you want, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone”.  John Lennon’s most famous song Imagine talks of a world with no religion, no heaven, no hell.

Red Hot Chilly Peppers, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, and other artists were also massive influences of contemporary music, and they had been influenced by Crowley.

2. Technological: Jack Parsons, the father of the space age, was a devoted follower of Crowley. He invented the first rocket engine. He claimed to have met Dajjal in an out-of-body experience.

3. Religious: Besides creating his own religion, Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons influenced L Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Hubbard was married to Parson’s ex-mistress, Sara Northrup. Northrup was a member of Crowley’s order, where she met Hubbard, and she was a major influence on his book Dianetics. Scientology is an atheist religion that tells its elite members that God is a lie. Modern Satanism and Wicca also have been influenced by Crowley.

4. Film: the directors most influenced by Crowley are Kenneth Anger and Brian Butler. They inspired celebrities like James Franco, Martin Scorsese, and Bono. 

As you can see, this small, mostly unknown circle (“Thelamites”) made a large portion of the modern world as we know it. Things that we used to deem innocent are turning out to be a part of Satan’s grand plot.

“We seek refuge in the Lord of men, the King of men, the God of men, from the evil whispering of a slinking devil who whispers into the hearts of men, from among the jinn and the men.”

The fact that three heavyweight titans of occultism like Crowley, Hubbard and Parsons lived during the same time-period is curious and amazing enough...the fact that they met one another and interacted intimately/closely/personally is mind-blowing.

Jack Parsons claimed to have met Dajjal in an out-of-body experience.

"Parsons recounted having an out-of-body experience invoked by Babalon, who astrally transported him to the biblical city of Chorazin, an experience he referred to as a "Black Pilgrimage". Accompanying Parsons' "Oath of the Abyss" was his own "Oath of the Antichrist", which was witnessed by Wilfred Talbot Smith. In this oath, Parsons professed to embody an entity named Belarion Armillus Al Dajjal, the Antichrist" who am come to fulfill the law of the Beast 666 [Aleister Crowley]". Viewing these oaths as the completion of the Babalon Working, Parsons wrote an illeist autobiography titled, 'Analysis by a Master of the Temple' and an occult text titled, 'The Book of Antichrist.' In the latter work, Parsons (writing as Belarion) prophesied that within nine years Babalon would manifest on Earth and supersede the dominance of the Abrahamic religions." Armilus = (Hebrew: ארמילוס) (also spelled Armilos and Armilius) is an anti-messiah figure in medieval Jewish eschatology who will conquer the whole Earth, centralizing in Jerusalem and persecuting the Jewish believers until his final defeat at the hands of the Jewish Messiah.

Marvel Actress Says She Knows People Who Practice Witchcraft

https://www.christianpost.com/news/marvel-actress-says-she-knows-people-who-practice-witchcraft.html

Actress Elizabeth Olsen, known for her recurring role as the Scarlet Witch in the Marvel superhero films, revealed she has friends that dabble in the occult.

The actress, seen in the newly released “Doctor Strange” installment, said she does not practice witchcraft in an interview.

“I am witness to it. I don’t practice it, but I have friends that do and people around me who do,” the 33-year-old actress told Pedestrian.tv when asked if she practices the dark arts.

“I do feel, though, that I and some people in my life are a little bit witchy,” she continued.

The California native said her “witchy” inclination impacts her subconscious.

“I think that that has something to do just being connected to nature and to allowing certain thoughts, or surprising dreams, like actually allowing — [taking] them in,” Olsen explained.  “And I think there is something about that in itself that is very witchy.”

n the Marvel films, Olsen plays Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch. She's a Romani Transian sorceress and the twin sister of the speedster Quicksilver.

In a past interview with Glamour Magazine, Olsen said she was given a "box of crystals and magical stones" by some of her marvel peers. In another interview, the actress also shared her atheist beliefs.

"When I was 13, I told my parents I didn't believe in God anymore," she said in 2013. "I wanted to be an atheist because I believed that religion should be about community and having a place to go in prayer, not something that should determine women's freedoms."

Olsen's sorcerous character is heavily featured in the new "Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness," a film filled with the dark arts, including casting spells, the occult and demons. The film pokes fun at Christianity by having Doctor Strange turn water into wine through a spell.

Joe Schimmel, the senior pastor of Blessed Hope Chapel in California, said "Doctor Strange" is "pushing the envelope" by "making satanists the heroes."

In an interview with CBN News, he drew a parallel between Marvel films and Christian.

He said Marvel is deliberately "making the bad guys have elements of Christ," adding: "Many Christians are putting their guards down, not realizing the darkness."

"It's in plain sight. They are influencing families and children," the pastor said. "Our parents grew up with comics. Now, it's superheroes but they're not the same comics from back then ... they've become far darker." 

He emphasized that Christians should be "discerning" and not "ignorant of Satan's devices."

Christian experts at Got Questions Ministries warned that "God takes witchcraft very seriously."

"The penalty for practicing witchcraft under the Mosaic Law was death (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus

20:27). First Chronicles 10:13 tells us that 'Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the Word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance," the ministry noted.

"At the heart of witchcraft is the desire to know the future and control events that are not ours to control. Those abilities belong only to the Lord. This desire has its roots in Satan's first temptation to Eve: 'You can be like God' (Genesis 3:5)," the ministry explained.

John Lennon was their connection to Crowley

The actual identity of Sgt. pepper is a lingering question...some theorize that the song "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (and album by the same name) are dedicated to Crowley himself...Crowley died in 1947 and Sgt. Pepper was released in 1967 during the height of the flower power revolution...opening song lyric goes, “It was 20 years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play”...also, one of Crowley's chief aims was to facilitate "oriental wisdom (i.e. Hinduism and yoga) to Europe and to restore paganism”...Fab Four and accompanying hippie movement did precisely this

The Book of the Law was supposedly dictated to Crowley by an interdimensional being named Aiwass...the most famous teaching in the book is, “Do what thou wilt is the whole of the Law”...during a 1980 interview with Playboy Magazine, Lennon stated, “The whole Beatle idea was to do what you want, right? To take your own responsibility, do what you want and try not to harm other people, right? Do what thou wilt, as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody.”

Ah the liberal ‘Harm Principle’ by John Stuart Mill. Often used by gay activists to justify homosexuality—i.e. “it’s two consenting adults…”

Yes exactly. This principle could be stretched to justify a lot of heinous acts.

It also presupposes materialism and does not consider the spiritual harm of one’s acts.

concept of inversion

It isn't unusual to see occultists or magicians or their artistically-inclined admirers walking backwards, talking backwards, writing things in an inverted manner, wearing clothes inside-out etc. Inverted sex (i.e. homosexuality) and backmasking was encouraged as training for adepts by Crowley. He suggested in his 1913 book, 'Magick' (book no. 4) that an adept, "train himself to think backwards by external means." One of these methods included, "listening to phonograph records, in reverse." Lennon singing in reverse on 'Rain'...John wanted the entire song reversed but Paul and George Martin had to reign (see what I did there...wink) him in and they all decided on the last thirty seconds only...'Rain' was a single that was issued when the album 'Revolver' was released

Throughout his life, Crowley emphatically maintained that Aiwass was an independent entity and not a suppressed part of his personality or of his subconscious mind...materialistically-inclined cynics aggravated him tremendously by dismissing his claims that Aiwass was an objectively separate being from himself

It's interesting to note that images, photos, pictures etc. themselves...and I believe films, movies, moving pictures, television etc. are also inverted (someone correct me if I'm wrong)…scientific explanation behind opposite images in the mirror versus upside-down photographic images
