On a related line of thought,
Is the mass of the collective belief of a large group of spiritual clueless, directed by a cadre of applied willworker could reach a point allowing the cursing of an Higher Demon with a behavior in accordance with the clueless belief?
Or the critical mass has not or cannot be attained due to their level of power and knowledge?
In other word, what level of power an aligned collective thought can be?
That could explain what they are or more likely trying to do.
As an example on a solo scale to illustrate:
I encounter an entity with horns.
Balanced belief: Horns are symbols of abondance, power or link to nature. Those carries no positive or negative intent a priori, so a polite greating is in order to initiate communication…
Clueless belief: AAAAAH! a Demon! its going to kill me and devour my soul!
2 thing could happen:
A - The shockwave of my belief, fueled and amplified by a strong emotion, transform the entity in accordance to my mis-will.
B - The entity read the belief and goes “Oookay! not quite ready for a communication from an evolved mind to another. What a shame! you had interresting latent abilities! Maybe for a later time… Take care!”… and leaves. However, due again to the strong emotion and lack of knowledge, I miss the departure and the image persist and again conform to my mis-will.
Religion is the invention of mankind to interpret spiritual matters. Interpretation is a key word. It implies error in them and if you take yourself too seriously in your belief, it become a belief trap.
I see to type of religions:
The dogmatic ones and the “tool-box” ones. Spirituality cannot be mass produced, the latter provide knowledge and opportunities allowing individual spiritual growth while the former is to spirituality what fast food is to gastronomy.
