Whatever physical beings are involved, they seem allergic to Jesus Christ which should tell you something right there. I knew of two cases where invoking Jesus against satan caused the human carrier to flee along with the devil.
So physicality is not ruled out by exorcistic effects. Aliens can be demons, physical, or demon infested physical beings.
An interesting video series on youtube is by a scientist who has gone loony from working with these aliens in some underground base, they get inside your head, and he may have gotten in their head also. TWO of the videos have a definite satanic imagery to them, and incl. a far eastern flavor in one. the other tells a little story that adds up to, the aliens had a problem, and made a deal with the devil to solve their problem, so now are serving him.
I discuss this in a video embedded at [...] and in my book on amazon kindle, A Possible History of Life on Mars. In my late father Elliot Erikson's book also on kindle, Karl Marx and The Communist Manifesto, is an eyewitness story of Karl Marx blowing his top, and this and his hatred of religion (and he even once penned some pro satan poem, I don't think that is mentioned in this book but somewhere else) makes me suspicious that Marx was possessed, and of course so was Hitler. A pincher move. But nazism is closer to the demonic than the mere vaccuum of atheism in communism in general (aside from Marx) so is worse. an atheist can always be converted to Christianity being bored after a while with the spiritual dryness of atheism. covert ambiguous Christians were always in play in Russia and got more unambiguously Christian after the Iron Curtain fell.
The fairies and so forth are definitely trouble. they lie, they steal, and the initial peace between the Ottoman muslims and the Orthodox Church in the Balkans, Serbia in particular, was disrupted by a Montenegrin bishop who started the rant that the people don't need their religious freedom as much as their national identity. This fleshly unspiritual concept which worships serbian land as part of "the serbian soul" got entrenched and Velimirovich spoke approvingly of this, and said that fairies in the hills help the serbs with their struggles.
Well! a land beset with vampires and haunts and demons has fairies in the hills helping the people, eh? helping keep them estranged from Orthodoxy. most were not reliable church goers long before Communism.
these things are damn evil, and whether demons themselves or demon compromised physical beings with a technology or psychic skill to warp one's mind so the are invisible or whatever, they are following the style of Balaam in Numbers in The Bible, who, when he could not curse Israel for gold from the king of Moab, advised alienating the Israelites from YHWH by getting them into sin - fornication with Moabite women, and idolatry. This didn't work forever and 23,000 were killed for it by a plague God sent, and Balaam ended up dead.
But the analogy is obvious. These things want what they want, and they try to get us estranged from Jesus Christ. Either get people away from Him altogether, or water the faith down with New Age heresy in the west and meditative states of mind that make one more vulnerable to their influence, dreamy manipulatable states or in the case of Serbian Orthodoxy compromise the faith by viewing it as a cultural artifact, and entrench a mysticism of soil and nation with it defiling it.
I am Eastern Orthodox myself by conversion. I have been there done that and repented of it regarding the Republican party is the party of God sort of mentality, and I recognize the same game when it play out in another context.
I found this book,like most of my now favorites,causally browsing the Cryptid/Bigfoot/unknown sections of Amazon.com. This work has left me just about speechless,for it brings so many things I've never considered,pertaining to the strange and unknown,witch in itself is great,. But to back up thoughts,theory's,speculations,,with historical references,from some of the most famous works in history,well,its flat out amazing! That pertains to me,personally,although I figure many may agree with this,after reading.
The world of the unknown,and for the moment unknowable,is a strange and spooky place. There's no clear and distinct lines. No rules and regulations. IMO,this work may be the closest thing to an explanation for so much of the unexplainable phenomena that presents itself to so many people,and has done so for uncounted century's. Mr Mott has explained the historical accounts,including the descriptions of certain phenomena,or entity's, in some cases from many sources,and has left little room for other interpretations on many of these experiences.
Very few books,it seems try to tackle these subjects in a way that's been done here. Again,IMO,it seems that tragically,mainstream America tends to joke,or just plain ignore strangeness,when it shows up unexpectedly. Hopefully soon,this awful characteristic of many will change,for the better. It's bad enough when every day people are traumatized,sometimes for life,by unknown and terrifying events or encounters,but to be ridiculed and joked about by the current state of news,or skeptics is blatantly inexcusable and un except able.
I would like to personally thank Mr Wm. Michael Mott,for his work and time that went into this book. I highly recommend it to anyone,who's interested in the unknown,for reading this book,one is bound to end the final page with an extended base of knowledge,and many new views and outlooks on ages old collections of subjects,entity's and creatures,and their history.
Not so with this book. For those of you that read Keel and Vallee and have had a hard time finding anyone that did more than regurge their ideas, or someone that took up where they left off, this is it, this is one of very few that also realized the whole idea of things unknown being native to this earth just as we are, ultimately makes a lot more sense than the currently popular ideas.
Overall, an excellent, excellent read that I did not at all regret buying and putting in the time to read. In a very few parts, I was less impressed by some of the stories put forth and with what I found when I tried to follow up with further research of my own. But overall, this was well-done and Mr. Mott has done a great job presenting ideas that are well out of the box, there is a piece of the puzzle here that goes a long way toward better explaining the experiences of many throughout history on this strange, haunted planet we find ourselves on.
