BlankOwnership of the Soul & Casting out the Genie - Genius

I have read the "The Devils of Loudon", and Possession of one's soul was a =
dominant factor in the premodern world. Including abuse by most of the powe=
rs that be, whether by the state of religious institutions. Times don't cha=
nge much. Exorcists and religious functionaries were called upon to drive d=
emons and other spiritual beings out of persons, while oracles and prophets=
chose to summon such beings to come to them. In the New Testament, Christ =
is frequently called upon to drive evil demons and "unclean spirits" out of=
people. It was a widespread belief in the ancient world that these spiritu=
al beings were responsible for the physical and mental illnesses of most pe=
ople. Creative people were thought to be possessed by a genius (the word co=
mes from the same root as djinn or genie) or tutelary planetary "daemon" wh=
ich provided them with their wisdom. When people were acting "not like them=
selves," it was assumed that their soul had been expelled and that their bo=
dy was now possessed or owned by some other spiritual being. (Garrett 1987:=

Re: Liminality


Hello Manik,

Shucks is the order of the day...

I saw your project on free manifesto - looked good. Even though there are
language differences between indivuals on the list, I am sure that generally
everyone will try to understand more because of this fact - cleverness is a
distraction/understanding takes time...

much respect from marc
