Gods Angels Demons Ghosts Aliens These are all different things, albeit with some overlap. "Gods", "Demons" and "Ghosts" are concepts you'll find in old pagan writings. The "gods" are our creators, benevolent and similar in appearance to us, physical but with strong psychic powers. The "demons" are a class of malevolent spirits, probably corresponding to a combination of Montalk's "agenda aliens" and the more harmful variety of tulpa. Ghosts are specifically the souls of living things that have died, and will hopefully get a new body soon. In monotheistic writings, there is just one "god", and all the other gods have been converted to "angels". Things are otherwise basically the same as above, except for some weird cases where gods have been copied multiple times to have an "angel" version and a "demon" version (but that's an error, not a matter of terminology). The modern talk of aliens comes from looking back at the old descriptions of gods and saying "hey, I think those are what we'd call aliens!" The aliens would include gods, angels (if you even consider these distinct from gods) and demons (barring tulpas), but not ghosts or tulpas. The claim that gods and demons are aliens is, well, a claim - if you think those are all tulpas or some other variety of permanently-disembodied spirit, then that's a disagreement. People attribute abduction experiences to aliens because that's what they think it is. If they thought it was demons, that claim would pass much more easily in general society (the Big Skeptics are a tiny minority). Of course, when it comes to Montalk's version of aliens, there's no diffe Can you attribute motives to a ghost? You're been a ghost before. You probably don't remember it, and the experience is very strange, so maybe you don't understand the motives of a ghost. But it's certainly something you could understand, considering that it's something you've been before. Gods and demons are another matter, of course. It's no use talking about what they can be in theory - but there is some sense in talking about what they actually are, considering that they involve themselves with us. And there's no such thing as "totally incomprehensible" - only more or less difficult to comprehend. All things are possible. But what's usual is for each being to have its own experiences, which may or may not overlap with ours. A fish only knows the sea; a tree only knows the shape of nature where it grows; a dog knows the same world a human knows, more or less. A god most probably knows the same world we know, and then some. A tulpa, perhaps, has experiences only through us; that I'm not sure about. The ones that don't are called "tulpas". Fortunately, we agree on this point, so we don't need to discuss the evidence. (And if we do encounter a disagreement, I'd rather exchange intuitions than evidence.) Memories don't quite die with the body - they just don't come back to the physical world for your next incarnation. Seeing your past lives is possible with the right spiritual work. My experience is similar. What I was saying, though, wasn't that humans astral project to go visit the gods - it was that the gods astral project to visit the humans (and if you have the right chakras open to be able to see spirits, then you can see these astral visitors as well).
