Sharpening improves already-proven technique for revealing hidden demons with iPhone

This post updates the technique I developed several years ago for revealing hidden demons in digital media by recommending the use of an unsharp mask as a part of the. post image acquisition processing procedure. Applying a sharpening filter to images processed per this technique is considered a crucial and necessary step, in that 1) it may reveal demons that otherwise remain hidden after the existing technique was applied; and, 2) it may expose details of demons made visible by the existing technique that cannot be seen without this added step.

The existing procedure requires an iPhone and a homemade video camera app [see Source code from GitHub]. With few exceptions, the app is basic: simply touch the Record button to start a video, and then touch it again to save it to Photos; the app automatically configures camera properties to settings known to increase the likelihood of capturing images of cloaked demons. It also provides manual configuration of two settings and access to one hardware feature to compensate for issues related to lighting and focus. Collectively, they determine how much light is allowed into the aperture and for how long it is exposed to the digital imaging sensor.

The controls enable manual adjustment to camera settings related to lighting and focus
The video itself is made by panning the camera across any object or person suspected to be possessed by demons or any scene occupied by them, albeit while cloaked (hidden). Panning and proximity are key, the speed and distance of either varying based on the size and material of the object (or the detail and scope of a scene) and lighting. With relatively little experience, a reasonable estimation of the optimal angle and motion for a multiplicity of subjects can be made prior to recording video; further refinements can be made by examining the video made.

Regardless of how fast and close the camera is panned, the end result should be a motion-blurred image every time. The aim is to move the camera at a speed and proximity that blurs only the slower moving light from visible objects, but not the faster moving "light" from invisible demons. The camera sensor sees both kinds of light and renders images that enable image-processing filters that sharpen to make and expose the distinction.

Once made, a video is processed at a minimum with a mirror (kaleidoscope) filter or any filter or feature that joins a mirrored duplicate of the original video at all four edges, both right-side up and upside-down (for a total of eight permutations). This step was derived from the theory of light physics that suggests that light is altered as it passes over to the edge of a surface, which both slows the speed of such light and concentrates it at the same time. In this case, the edges of the aperture opening combined with a digital imaging sensor's ability to detect a wider range of the spectrum of light than the naked eye make it possible to find hidden demons along the edges of the image.

Although joining a mirror duplicate to the edges of the original is an inextricable and immutable first step, using the advantages provided by the aperture's edges is not; the sensor alone is sufficient to capture light from cloaked demons. By overlapping the edges by any amount at any angle will reveal even more demons.
NOTE | It is amazing enough to capture images that show a dozen demon faces down the center of the join; it's even more amazing to turn those same images upside down and see a dozen different demons that were right on top of the others all along, but could not be seen from their angle. What's even better, is moving the original and duplicate by varying degrees towards the center created by their joined edges (the reflection point). As you do, you will see one demon face evolve into another, and then another and then yet another until you've merged the two frames to a narrow slit. To beat that, you can rotate them by the same angle but in opposite directions to see even more faces evolve—and, this at any center point. It's like counting bees in a swarm.
The added, second step adds detail and clarity, as shown by the following screenshots:
A frame from a video made of a painting in my bedroom using my camera app
The same frame reflected at its center point, which overlaps it by half to its width, reveals several demon heads, four of which are highly prominent 
The same, mirrored frame shown above, sharpened, adds remarkable detail to the demons revealed by mirroring while revealing even more demon heads

From fiction to fact: the "myth" of demon song

Demon song and its effect on the human psyche is neither a myth nor a story device conjured to advance the plot by engaging reader interest. It is, in fact, a reality—and, it is just as deadly, dangerous and malign in its use and intent as the stories recounting it describe.

It is on this fact that a solution of 100% efficacy was developed to end the demonic nightmare, namely, a tone barrier (or heckler), which inhibits the ability of demons to hit their notes on key—critical for effective song—and/or the ability of the target to hear the notes as they are required to be heard to be effective. Since ambient (nighttime) demonic activity of the nightmarish variety occurs during sleep, the tone barrier has to be erected at the onset of the sleep cycle and maintained throughout the entire duration.
NOTE | Demons who cause nightmares can restore connections broken by a tone barrier in three minutes after it ceases.
The tone barrier, however, while unique in both its addressing of a common and unaddressed (and huge) problem, is not by any stretch a marvel of creativity or intelligence—and, that goes double for the knowledge that demons song is dangerous. As to the latter, human literature is replete with both ancient and contemporary references to demons and their nefarious singing voices.

The most notable stories include:
The Sirens and Ulysses, 1837, 442.5 cm by 297 cm (14 ft 6 in by 9 ft 9 in) by William Etty
In just these two literary volumes, you have accounts from both Jew (the root of Christianity) and Gentile (the Greeks), as it were. No one comes from a culture that hasn't made effectively made it widely known that demon song is real—and that it is not good.

Tone barrier app establishes first impenetrable stronghold against ambient demonic activity (DRAFT)

This blog post introduces the first tool for building a fence around an area of your life and person that demons invaded, conquered and now thrive. It drives them back, and keeps them away. It's not a small plot of land, either; it's the rest pillar of the three pillars of health, diet and exercise being the other two. Demons do a lot of work on people in their so-called sleep, generally, making a fearful and cowardly person by a torture so advanced it rivals any discovery of science you could name. That's the end result of any torture; mankind knows  to have its effect, torture must be conducted while the victim is consciously aware it. What man doesn't know (but demons do know) is that the victim does not have to remember it afterwards for that end result to be the same (or, maybe they know, but they don't know how to incognate a victim afterwards). Man also knows that the torture must cross the threshold of intensity that produces the desired result, and that it must occur with a specific degree of frequency; what man can't do (but demons can do) is cause fatal injuries, repair them immediately, and then cause them again. And, again. And, again.

This tool, I promise, stops that completely and totally, regardless of the level of demonic activity at any given period, right out of the box; it also promises the possibility to create more tools to stop other problems, too, although, for now, it only stops this one. Even so, sweet dreams are made of this—believe it.

Means for data acquisition and defense are the natural "next thing" after the blog, which started eight years ago as a means to inform as many as possible, as convincingly as possible, of a big problem I heard no one else talking about; but, rather, sounding off about it instead (demonic idiom). As soon as I started it, it was clear that my blog couldn't be the same tattle-tell and complaint forum and selfish plea of "help" like others publish. It had to have a point. Apparently, my enemy agreed, giving me one by setting out to mock everything I published, essentially saying no matter how good your proof is, you better be able to beat us in a fight over it. And, by beat, they meant so that no one who wants to believe a lie could in the face of my evidence.

We agreed that being able to make a visible image of an otherwise invisible demon using any smartphone with a built-in camera as easily taking a regular photo constitutes good, and making that available to anyone who owned a smartphone constitutes a fight, and getting people to make such images constitutes beat.

This blog starts off with a story that typifies The Life of a Demoniac as a beater-in-progress in a fight started eight years ago. It's the blog's pinnacle. I took eight years of notes on a lot of things; but, no matter the topic, every post had a crappy image or video that nonetheless contributed to art at its finest we have now.
NOTE | This doesn't mean the blog is over; it just means it has two clearly defined edges that mark a beginning and a definitive end. It couldn't continue without getting muddied. The fruit of its labor was meant to be distributed in other venues; it was meant to push down the walls that were erected to keep people ignorant, and to do so by stifling those who would seek to make people informed. That's anywhere but this blog. If the blog continued in this form, and adjacent to it, then what it is now would be "Chapter One." Most likely, though, just like the images that are the final outcome documented by these notes, Chapter Two will be published in whatever forum or by whatever means tools like the one that is the subject of this post are published and used. That's a more appropriate way to disseminate my notes, etc., than this blog would be.
A few weeks ago, I taught a blog reader how to use a digital video camera to create images of cloaked (invisible) demons. For the first time, he knew—not believed or suspected—but, knew they were real because he could see them with his own eyes by his own hand.

Even though my goal from the very beginning of the blog was to prove demons were real irrefutably, definitively, and globally to such an effect that anybody who denied them would be immediately branded a liar or ignorant or crazy (in other words, any of the same labels applied to me by people who knew demons were real, but wanted to frustrate my handling of the problems demons were causing in my life), being now able to do so isn't so much a blessing for people I had hoped it would be during these past eight years; rather, more like a burden to them. There's an avalanche of hard-to-cope realizations following their new knowledge, the two biggest being after creating one image and after having created thousands.

It only takes one image of a demon in your house captured by your camera by you for God and Jesus to actually become real to such persons about a minute after demons do. That's when it dawns on them that sin and salvation never got the serious priority it clearly should have had their entire lives—just as they were warned—now that Hell and Judgment both are knocking on their door.
NOTE | This gets even to people who are not religious, per se, and those who did not believe in God or what the Bible says of God. That's because it's not a belief that drives the rightful fear of judgment against the sinful, it's the fact that any creature having knowledge of the difference between good and evil can feel naturally, as part of their being of and presence in nature. Right and wrong are not laws made by hands; they are facts proven by the product of wisdom, which is nothing more than pragmatic logic. 2+2=4—you didn't invent that; it's what it is. God made the universe to support these facts; it becomes clear to atheists that there was a plan and design by a higher power when the demon-aspect of the Bible can no longer be dismissed is combined with the lifetime of a natural nagging of inner knowledge that God exists. They are staring a God they mocked in the eyes everywhere they look after my five-minute lesson on "seeing the unseen world" around them. If Airbnb approves my application to host an "Airbnb Experience" that teaches this same lesson for $10 a head, I'll get to see this happen to people weekly.
After making about a thousand of demon images—which, using my technique, is doable by merit of its output of three images every second, with up to a dozen in each—they realize they are surrounded by a citizenry with more power and influence in the world they thought they once knew (but didn't) and that they were both fools and victims of deception their entire lives; they realize that everything they know is not enough and may never be, and they realize that everyone they know is either a liar or a fool or a victim (except me).

The following is but one example of a lie flaunting itself in front of any and every ignorant face that looks at it:

This image showing art produced by the illustration software it advertises is a hand-rendered drawing of a demon totem (a demon totem serves the same purpose as a Jacob's Ladder, and requires that demons to blend like Matryoshka Dolls), which are characterized by the overlapping heads of demons; each whole head forms an individual part of another a part of the a different demon. The passenger pigeon demon—the V-shaped head and pointy chinned demon at the bottom-center—serves an evil agenda; they are the war horse of the Army of Darkness. Their name is derived by their defining role as carriers between realms for other species of demon, and because they are as common and proliferate as any variety of common pigeon. A Core ML model was developed to instantly recognize this particular demon in images [see TECH | Machine learning: Image classifier model automatically, instantly recognizes demons in images]

Once all of that hit my blog reader, all he could do is stare at his bevy of images of new worlds, life and civilizations and ask the same question over and over: "They are everywhere, aren't they?"

The answer, by the way, is: "Literally."

There are everywhere and in everything all the time. I had an ultrasound once during a period of unusually high demonic activity once, and you could clearly make out the faces of demons in every major organ in my body cavity. 

There are lots of them wherever they are and whatever they are in. Demons don't walk alone; they can't. The transition [decloaking] from their native realm to ours is a group affair. I don't know how many it takes to make it; it looks like that depends on the number of demons joined in a totem, the ability and strength and size of the demons in the totem with the species of demon being the leading factor with respect to ability. So, when someone says they are possessed by a demon, that may be true; but, if they think that's the only one involved in the possession, they think wrong. I can excuse the error from a demoniac—even the really arrogant ones who call themselves experts because of what they think they know, who also call anyone who actually might be experts anything but an expert; but, when a so-called exorcist talks of a one-demon possession, I have no mercy to give. It's not advanced knowledge that there are always an entire legion anywhere there is one. It's the second thing you realize after your first contact with demons. If you don't know this fact, it means you've never, ever been involved with demons—and, some exorcists call themselves capable of fighting them, even still.

This app creates a figurative barrier against specific kinds of demonic activity that only occur during sleep (such as demon-induced nightmares) by interfering with two requisite mental aspects: focus and concentration. In order to affect a tangible presence of consequence in any non-native realm, a demon must first narrow his thoughts to a single intention and then maintain perfect concentration until it manifests. The effort is the same as focusing on the part of a single musical instrument while an entire orchestra plays, and then singing to and listening to it to the exclusion of all other instruments until the symphony ends.

Regardless of whether a given instrument is the same as or different from other instruments, it is distinguishable by the differences between the notes played and/or their relative sound characteristics.

The random tones generated by this app obfuscate these distinctions in the mind of the demon, in a way analogous to an instrument that produced an identical sound and played the same notes, albeit in random order and to an unpredictable beat. Two sine waves with different random frequencies between 300 and 4000 Hz are played consecutively between 0.25 and 1.25 seconds for a total 2 seconds combined are known to be completely effective for ambient demonic activity.

Although any activity by demons outside their native realm requires the same focus and concentration to some degree, this app could conceivably protect against all of it. The determining factor of the effectiveness and feasibility of a tone barrier is proper deployment (i.e., location, specifically, proximity and positioning), which based on a complete knowledge of the fundamental aspects and dynamics of the type of activity it targets and the limitations inherited by all demons occupying a non-native realm.

The cacophony of the tone barrier’s cadence created by this app was determined to be completely effective against its targeted activity using a single iPhone at full volume throughout an entire sleep cycle within range of a demon’s hearing, and positioned along their path.

Locating a demon at any given site is the only challenging factor, but the possibilities can be narrowed and otherwise readily ascertained by these three keys facts:

(1) close proximity to the target-sleeper is necessary to perform the target activity (usually within the same room or adjacent);

(2) the presence of demons in a non-native realm is only made possible by occupying space from their native realm, which pockets or pools or is otherwise contained in small, enclosed or ensconced structures (e.g., a closet, small bathroom, chimney fireplace, cabinets, drawers, dishwashers, garbage disposals, drains, sewers, washers and dryers, ovens, range hoods, bathtubs/showers, etc.); and,

(3) the species of demon involved in the targeted activity is comparable in size and shape to h. Sapiens (human).

In sum, the position of the iPhone can be logically strategized by the placing the iPhone in any structure known to contain native demon space sufficient for occupation of a humanoid-sized demon nearest occupied sleeping quarters.

The end (of nightmares) is here

About this post..
Let's just say: It was about time to hymn them up...

Today, a fellow Quora user asked: Is sleep paralysis paranormal?

Lately, Quora has been receiving a lot questions related to the phenomena sometimes called demon nightmaresenough, in fact, that I have once again become one of Quora's top writers on the subject of demons:

A most viewed writer on demons for Quora—yet again
Having recently proven a sure-fire way to put an end to those for myself, I decided this question and others like it would be a great opportunity to share my knowledge.

This post contains my answers to two questions published to Quora related to ambient demonic activity, and (indirectly) introduces my solution to it:

Q: Is sleep paralysis paranormal?

A: Yes, it is paranormal—demonic, to be exact. It is never anything else, certainly not a “combination of lazy leg and hallucinations” as bold-faced liars will tell you and the lazy will believe.
It is a form of torture that has its roots in early childhood, and is perpetuated throughout the course of one’s entire life. Its potential uses are many, but the overarching goal is to take away aspects of your humanity which would make you resistant to any kind of manipulation that would serve the demonic agenda—and, that, by subjecting you on a routine basis to extreme fear and pain.
Most people only remember a portion of the experience, specifically, the fear, and comparatively few episodes; but, these episodes occur much more frequently and involve much more than fear than your memory will tell you. Regularity and reinforcement go hand-in-hand, it would seem.
I wouldn’t have known this until I met demons, but, apparently, you don’t have to remember the particulars of an egregious act (such as bodily mutilation) to achieve the same damage (or effect) to the mind as otherwise. It seems demons are content with the mark they leave on the subconscious, whereas the rest, being able to serve as a warning they’d rather you not act on, can go. This is one of two primary reasons why you perceive sleep paralysis as a dream when (I’m sorry to say) it is not. The “incognation” process is conducted on the conscious part of the mind; naturally, as you recover from having your short-term memory impaired, you are going to feel like you are waking up from a dream, of which the longer you try to remember, the harder it gets.
These are just a few of the most important facts about sleep paralysis, as it were. If you accept them, and act on them as if you believe they are true, you’ll find that whatever solution to the problem you try, your results will have been predictable. It’s people who believe it to be a physical anomaly or abnormality who never get anywhere.
It just so happens that I solved the problem for myself with 100% efficacy a couple of months ago by merit of my extensive engagement with demons over the course of my life. I took really good notes, you could say, and discovered a little bit about the role and purpose and function of demon “song” as it is “sung” in human space (and, in particular, how it is used against and for humans).
I also observed demons at work causing nightmares. I was even approached by one of my childhood demons from over 30-something years ago, who very apologetically showed me a device she had used on me (and presumably others) that creates fear.
Eventually, I was able to draw corollaries between what I learned about demon song and demonic nightmares both, which allowed me to begin forming ideas as to how to address the problem. All those that seemed viable involved interrupting the song demons use to find each other “in the ether” (the space in your mind where you hear things with your mind’s ear and see with your mind’s eye—the place where you pray silently) to create nightmares jointly and to find a way into your mind to put it there.
Accordingly, I put together an app aimed to make pitch-finding impossible. It beeps random pitches, loudly, and nothing more:
How it works is easy to comprehend: Have you ever tried to sing Mary Had a Little Lamb while someone sang Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star directly in your ear?
The song that is the key to your inner mind must be sang perfectly on-pitch and on-beat. Your mind will reject as foreign any off-key or off-cadence note. My app, which runs on the same iPhone I sleep with, keeps my mind closed by playing randomized frequencies at varying amplitudes at unpredictable intervals so that no song could be sung beside it—correctly or otherwise—by anyone with a nefarious agenda.
Because the attempt can still sometimes be felt—even though unsuccessful—I have been experimenting with running the app on computers installed in various locations around my apartment in the hopes of throwing the singers off-key.
It has been a wildly successful experiment, let me tell you. I found out that even if a demon can sing the perfect song that connects him to his dream partners, it can be squelched or obfuscated or jammed by simply throwing the listener off the same way my iPhone app throws me as a “listener” off—by playing tones in the air. I also discovered that it takes three demons to make a nightmare: One for setting the scene, one for creating the characters, and a third for creating the dialogue and interaction with the scene and the characters. it’s the third one that you want to avoid. Fortunately, this role cannot be filled without the first two, so it’s sufficient to take out any one of the three to knock out the third.
The source code for my app is available at Github, if you want to see how it works and try it for yourself.

Q:   I’m 16 currently. And last night I think I first experienced my first sleep paralysis. But I definitely heard something screaming in my right ear, and it felt like forever. Is this sleep paralysis?

A: It confounds me the same, no matter how many times I see a term invented to describe an attack by demons that misses the mark so completely as some do. What in the world is sleep paralysis?
Here’s what happened and here’s what it is…
You were attacked in your sleep by demons (plural), who can jointly create a space of a kind that you share with them that is perceived by your mind as a dream. While maybe not always your body, definitely some part of you is making contact with entities who know how to marshal people into a playground of mutual creation—that is, both yours and theirs; and, while you also have some control over this space, too, you are outnumbered by experts, who also have all of the advantages inherent to a demon: permeability, invisibility, etc.
That’s what’s happening, and those are your odds when playing the game on their terms. That, by the way, will always deal you a losing hand.
To come to accept your experiences for what they truly are, and not some ridiculously named medical phenomena, still does not afford you any ground for victory.
The only means to winning that fight, like so many others, is to avoid it. I don’t know what’s been tried, but I doubt anything that fails to identify the cause of the problem and define it correctly (truthfully) works well and in every case.
Any viable means of avoidance would have to at least acknowledge the real problem, and then address each of its particulars. How the problem is caused by demons and how the cause is a problem to you would have to factor into the design at a minimum. That requires not only an intimate knowledge of the process of creating a shared space between minds, but how a demon creates them jointly with other demons; it would also require knowledge of how the human conscious is lured into such a space, and how it allows this space to be created in their mind by other minds.
Although it may sound hard to gain this knowledge and to formulate a defensive strategy from it, just think of how impossible it would be to figure anything worthwhile out of sleep paralysis.
You’re in luck, though, in that I happen to know a way to prevent these with 100% efficacy. It’s called a tone barrier—an app that plays sounds, randomized in frequency and amplitude, which prevents demons from “hitting their notes on key.” This is a rudimentary description of the way they “sing” to each other in the mental ether to find each other and otherwise make beautiful music together. Their harmony is one your mind has been subliminally trained to “hear.” When they sing the song written only for you, your brain opens its ears and listens.
NOTE | A connection between the song of demons and its effect on the human psyche was most notably established in the Greek myth, specifically, in the story of Ulysses and the Sirens.
The fact your brain has been trained for joint telepathic communication without your knowledge should compel you to take this problem as seriously as any. It takes years upon years of coaching and coaxing to get a human mind to participate and cooperate and yield control to another mind. One incident of sleep paralysis is invariably evidence of a lifetime of deceit (which, I hate to say, is not all done while you’re asleep, although you may not recognize it).
Together, this all means that your demons have made an investment in you that they expect to yield continual returns—not just one night of bad dream. There are other reasons w they do this to people. Generally, it’s to modify behaviors and attitudes for their purposes—and this never serves you.
On that note (pardon the pun), I’ll leave you with this thought: you are not the you that you could be while someone with selfish interests is piloting the helm of your mind. It’s not that you’re just going to be a different person; it’s that you are not going to be a person at all. If you want a chance to be you, you should try a tone barrier.
If you have an iPhone, you can download the source code I wrote at Github. Play it next to you while you sleep at safe volume (or under your bed or in your bedroom closet at full volume). That will keep you from hearing their song long enough for them to take away the bait that brought you into connection with them and to switch it out with their hook.

UPDATE | Five-year old argument with brother over demonic possession, revisited

In order to get this post, you need to know the general definition of worldview; it also helps to know the definition of two types of worldview, namely, deism and theism. Here are those definitions, if you don't already know them:

A worldview is the set of lenses through which you see the world around you. It's a web of habit-forming beliefs that helps you make sense of all your experiences related to God, the mind, morality, destiny, reality, knowledge, human nature, purpose, meaning, matter, origins and truth. Through your worldview, you interpret life in a particular way. It affects how you think, how you feel, and how you live from day-to-day.

To understand what your worldview is, think carefully about the big questions of life:
• Does God exist? (God, truth)
• How did everything begin? (origins, matter)
• Who am I? (purpose, knowledge, the mind)
• Why am I here? (destiny, meaning, human nature)
• Am I living a good life? (human nature, morality, truth)
• What happens after I die? (destiny)

This week, I started my 15th week and third course as a Christian Studies major at Grand Canyon University. In my Christian Worldview 101 class, students were asked to "recall a time when you met someone with a different worldview than yours, and you had a difficult time relating."

The Topic 1 Discussion Question 1 Christian Worldview 101 assignment asks students to recall a time when their worldview clashed with someone else's
I chose the argument I had with my brother over the reality of demonic possession nearly five years ago, as recounted in #575 - READER | No biblical basis for demonic possession. I wouldn't have known it at the time, but, after just three days in this course, I saw that it was our disparate worldview that made "productive and peaceful" conversation impossible that day.

Below is the April 24th, 2014, conversation; it is followed by my answers to the two questions posed in retrospect of my recollection, which pertain to the challenges I had relating to my brother, and my views on how I could have turned an argument into enlightenment:
NOTE | This was before I was able to produce images like these anytime, anywhere, and for anyone in under five minutes (and, that includes teaching someone how to do it for themselves, too).

Using a camera technique I developed, I can produce images of hidden demons like these, one every third of a second, on-demand
Topic 1 DQ 1

Recall a time when you met someone with a different worldview than yours, and you had a difficult time relating.

Here’s what I wrote about an argument with my own brother in #575 - READER | No biblical basis for demonic possessiona post to my blog on April 29, 2014 (note that this was before images like these were able to be made in front of his very eyes—he sings a different tune, five years later…):

Much rarer than those who accept that demon possession occurs in men, women, children and animals, regardless of their state of sin are those who believe that there is not only no biblical basis for demonic possession, but that the Bible teaches that it no longer occurs; but, sure enough, a reader (who turns out to also be my own brother) asserts this argument emphatically, as shown in this Facebook conversation between the two of us this afternoon in my Facebook group Demonic and Other Paranormal Activity [unformatted; starts with my post, advertising the latest factoid addition to this blog]:

James Bush DEMONIC FACTOID #34 | In spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, most people still believe that demonic possession is caused by spiritual defects inherent to the demoniac, and that godly living has the power to prevent or repel this affliction; rather, it is the ungodly that are more likely to cope, and to use demons to their personal advantage.

Read more about this fact and others at:

Jarrod Bush Or, you could refer to the New Testament after the establishment of the new covenant and see that demonic possession (along with miracles) are no longer permitted by God. God permitted possession in the times of Christ so that examples could be made that He was the Christ. As stated in in the letters from Paul, miracles and demonic possession have passed from the land. Therefore, if we believe that the Bible is truly the Word of God then demonic possession is not even an issue as it cannot occur. That is not to say that Satan and other Devils or demons cannot persuade you to lead a life of evil intent, but they cannot directly influence your body or soul per God's will. The Bible cannot be used to pick and choose what we want. It is one complete book from start to finish. The fact that this is addressed in the New Testament after the New Covenant has been established prove that possession cannot happen. If a person believes that it can, then they have to disagree with the entire Bible. It really is an all-or-nothing deal.

James Bush If you have any particular scripture in mind, by all means, share it with my readers...

Jarrod Bush "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name" John 20 30,31. In this scripture it says that Jesus was able to do many miraculous things. One of those things was to cast out demons. God permitted these demons to affect people mentally and spiritually so that Jesus could cast them out to prove that He was the son of God and that he had dominion over these demons.

James Bush There was demon possession after Christ. Read Acts 6.

Jarrod Bush Zechariah 13: 1-2 "There shall be a fountain opened to the House of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land."

James Bush That pertains to God's covenant with the house of Israel. Not applicable here, in that it refers to a very specific point in time.

Jarrod Bush This was a prophesy referring to the new covenant being set up. After the new covenant prophets and demons that could directly influence body and mind were gone.

James Bush Besides, there's no one who doesn't believe that this is real, so...

Jarrod Bush This as in Jesus casting out demons or demonic possession?

Jarrod Bush Once there was no more need for words or signs to deify Christ, these things ceased to be.

Jarrod Bush The apostles were given the power to do miracles so yes, these occur in Acts (of the apostles). But God did not allow the transfer of these powers to others because there ceased to be a need. Therefore, God would not allow possession if there was to purpose. It is not expedient or profitable.

James Bush Nope, you're confused; Jesus said that when he returns, there will be people who claim to have cast out demons in His name.

James Bush That means that demon possession is real, and that it will be an issue until the second coming.

James Bush Sorry, you're ass out on this one.

Jarrod Bush Exactly, CLAIM does not mean it happened. CLAIM, I can claim that I'm Jesus. Doesn't make it true. So, I don't think I'm the one confused.

Jarrod Bush I provided multiple references that shoot down your argument. I can give you about 5 more if you like.

James Bush Matthew 7:21-23. It doesn't mean "claim," it means "happened."

James Bush Of course, that doesn't mean it's happening around me; but, if it hasn't, you've been arguing with a crazy man, which is pointless.

Jarrod Bush And, his response to them, "And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness"

Jarrod Bush Argument invalid.

Jarrod Bush It's not happening around you nor anywhere else. Note, I never said demons don't necessarily exist, I said demonic possession doesn't exist.

Jarrod Bush Lastly, I'm not saying that your perception of reality is wrong. If you think it's happening then it doesn't matter what I think, because to you it is. All I'm saying is that of all the people I have met in my walks of life, Church of Christ, atheist, theistic agnostic, atheistic agnostic, from a lot of nationalities, no one believes in true demonic possession. They like in the sense of "The Exorcism" for entertainment. But no one takes it seriously.

  1. What challenges did you have relating to that person?
There were multiple issues that challenged peaceful and productive conversation on that day:
  • First, his knowledge of the Scripture and Word are spurious and superficial, and that’s because his attempts to study, test and learn their tenants have always been spurious and superficial—almost non-existent, in fact. By contrast, my understanding, comprehension, and efforts to apply them (coupled with my well-documented, positive results) enabled me to more readily interpret the Scripture he used to support his argument correctly and intuitively;
  • Second, his approach was a confrontational one from the time he initiated it to the time I ended it. Our history prior presented this challenge. From the onset of my blog, he acted on multiple occasions to undermine my growing popularity due to the intense interest in the videos posted to the blog (no longer available), and he acted to derail my ongoing success at winning public trust, support and confidence (my readership had recently soared to over 5 million, worldwide) by openly disparaging me in several of my advertising venues. Being a small world—apparently—some of his friends asked him about my blog, and stated they favored it highly.
  • Third, his comprehension of the purpose of my blog was lazy. My blog is not a "Are UFOs real?" kind of blog. That's not the type of question it purports to answer. After five years, he should have bothered to understand what the blog is: "a collection of written notes on observations and experiences with demonic and criminal activity in the Bay Area of California..." It is not trying to "prove" anything; the reader is presumed to have already experienced firsthand some or all of the things described in it.
  1. How might an understanding of the other's worldview have helped you in that situation?
Nobody wants to belong to a relatively inferior species and be native to an environment that makes them completely vulnerable to another, far more superior one. To many, it is aberrant to their pride and ego to contemplate or acknowledge this fact; and, to them, anyone who acknowledges this fact is essentially shaming mankind. Had I known that my brother believed in God, but not that he was made in the image of God (in other words, Had I known that my brother had a deistic worldview, but not a theistic one), I would have led the conversation to a place where I could allow him to learn about, acknowledge and possibly accept his God-given divinity and dignity prior to having this particular discussion.  I believe it would have made him more receptive to the truth—that is, what he already knows and what is actual reality (both being the same)—and not his own machinated rationalizations.

Quora post bests blog traffic 3:1; fight against evil inspires poetry in readers

Talk about a blood bath in the ratings...from hellraiser to bar-raiser...and all that...

In just one week and one answer to a man's question on Quora, I garnered over 1,250,000 eyeballs on my definition of what constitutes right thinking and right action when witnessing heinous acts. That's nearly three times more eyeballs on just one Quora post than over 1,000 posts in my seven years of blogging:

My answer was circulated to over a million Quora users, which garnered 71,000 views in about a week
That's only the first of three surprises, though. Next, was the difference between the expected level of interest in one topic relative to the other was just as great. My answer pertained to a man who rescued a dog from apparent cruelty, and this blog is about the source of the world's most pressing problems (old and dusty as it may be).

A 'Most Viewed Writer in Demons' on Quora......distributed to over......1,220,000 readers, world-wide.

There's the life I wanted (and still very much want for myself)......and, then......there's the life God very much wanted for Himself.

Then, there's the not-so-surprising but ever-so-pedantic appearance by demon-allied people, who posted comments in mass shortly after my post became popular, all pretending to think I was the questioner (the man who saved the dog), and pretending that I offended them by saving the dog from the alleged abuser. The surprise, though, is what happened after I shared my post with fellow students at the university I attend:

An overwhelming flood of support followed the casual mention of my Quora post in a class discussion on the topic of online harassment (I am a full-time, straight-A student at GCU, eight weeks in...)
Unlike all the similar times before, comments showing support and encouragement buried the negative ones. It was a clear and public statement of an active stance against the acts of demon people. The response was the first sign that a large number of people recognized what was—before—unacknowledged if not unknown. Although that implied acknowledgement was not necessarily direct, it wasn't likely intended to be. Rather, it appeared to be a dollars-for-donuts tactic, which sent a pretty clear message that demon people are not welcome, and not the only ones who know how to play ball, as the demons say.

Now, before you say I'm reading too much into it, let me ask you this: How many people who read your blog think of you whenever they read famous poetry:

I cannot think of a more apt poem than this one, as it sometimes applies to my situation; it is downright scary to think the number of complete strangers with an intimate knowledge of some of its most egregious aspects—although it shouldn't be. God, after all, has made it part of his routine to acknowledge the same degree of intimacy. I guess finding it in a human is what surprises me. This man is golden in my mind.

TECH | Knock-out video-processing techniques for turning night into getting the daylights knocked out of you

Sorry if the heading reads a little funny; I haven't been the same since being knocked out cold by the group of belligerent demons that invaded my home to hurt Scratchen, Fish and the Other Fish a couple of nights ago during the latest period of demonic activity (I'm confident everyone on earth knows of which I speak).

Thanks to the demons who did this, you can see the aftermath of the assault on video. In the clip below, I'm being dragged from underneath my bed by demons, and then laid in front of the camera with my head arranged so it's facing towards it by a pair of arms. After a little brightening, you could easily see my stunned face and wide-eyed, frozen-faced empty stare that evidences every assault committed by the demonic weapon specifically used to cause what is literally a temporary death:

This isn't the first time demons have borrowed my video camera to commemorate such an event; there are at least three other similar occasions documented by this blog. Unfortunately, since YouTube and Vimeo have deleted all of my videos hosted by them, only the descriptions of the events remain.

Still, I think this one says plenty about the problem and the danger. It wouldn't, though, without a little post-processing prowess using the same iPhone on which the video was made.

The original video was too dark to tell what was going on; to make it as clear as possible, I used the same technique shown below:

Using VideoLeap for iPhone, I was able to quickly brighten video shot in the dark—in less than minute, in fact, and realistically, too. Anyone who makes videos during periods of high demonic activity should keep them until they can be processed in at least this one way.

Coming up is a technique that reveals actual demons standing in a dark room with you, which cannot be seen with the naked eye. The results are not realistic, but they do make clear that you are not alone, if that's indeed the case.

This may look bad; but, the demons haven't had any appreciable impact of negative consequence on any of my key indicators for personal success—namely, my continuing education and my public writing.

I'm still an ace in class:

The impact to my educational agenda was negligible, as shown by my current gradebook report as a student attending GCU
And, an ace on The Life of a Demoniac | Quora:

My expertise and experience are evident to any audience, no matter whether the venue is personal, like this blog, or public or third-party, like
