Recently I’ve been thinking quite a lot about what demons are, their power, obscure forces, and how they’re connected to nature and humans. Personally, I think demons are mediums which allow humans to tap into/interact with certain forces. Every demon represents a particular force. I also think that humans (or at least some of them) share a connection with these forces as well, but in a significantly lesser degree.
From my experience, and the experience of other people I know, I’ve come to two possible conclusions:
A) Demons visit certain children and bestow gifts upon them (such as greater knowledge of mathematics, philosophy, etc). And this is from a very early age, by the way, before they go to school, and/or have much experience. Usually, it’s the guardian demon who passes this knowledge onto the child.
B) People, upon birth, are a part / partially connected to the demons/forces they represent, so they have this unexplained knowledge on particular topics which isn’t a result of experience.
I know it may sound a bit wacky, but I think it’s rather odd how I, for instance, had/has knowledge on topics that Asmodeus teaches, as well as exhibited behavior/attributes that belong to him when I was extremely young, only to find out years later that Asmodeus is my guardian demon. The same goes for my friend who had/has knowledge and attributes which are associated with Vapula, who turned out to be her guardian demon.
