I am posting this from the National Demonology Department, with permission from my director Ronald Dressler, a fellow demonologist and good friend...
A few of you may not know me very well but I am a practicing demonologist and a negative tuned medium as are most of the members of N.D.D we are nationwide with affiliates in several states our only specialty is severe demonic cases. I find the information fascinating the formation of demons in particular most people do not understand how the beings are formed and that there are several types of demons just because we call it a demon does not necessarily mean it’s a "exorcist" type there are some that are harmless and roam feeding on other energy beings like themselves, the type most people associate with the word demon are called "occult or cosmic and astral" demons, these are dangerous, there are cosmic and gregori. Gregori is the strongest and most dangerous this type of demon controls other types of demons and this is the kind that comes to our plane and can kill.
This is long but very interesting: I will break it in to parts of 3
The Formation and Behavior of Demons
Demons are entities made from neutral energy merged with negative energy. Neutral energy is not a native energy in this Dimensional Universe and is what many believe to be the energy of which our souls are formed. Demons are spawned by residual fragments of this energy that is left behind that bind with negative energy to form a demon.
Its consciousness is formed from fragments of memories of the deceased still within the area of death or in Hell. Neutral Energy is what our Souls are primarily made from. We call these energy neurons, and they form the pulses of energy throughout the nervous system and the brain. These fragments may become twisted with negative energy in the area to form Minor-Demons or Sub-Demons.
Before I go any further, I need to inform you of the Astral-Plane. It is another Dimension, where neutral energy is dominant and all things have either negative and neutral, or positive and neutral energy. This forms several different layers of different areas of this dimension. The top is where Heaven is thought to exist.
Below Heaven are the Greater Plains. This is where the Spirits of the departed are waiting to get into Heaven. This I believe is purgatory, and those who have lesser than pure lives have too much negative energy to be comfortable on that Plain, considering it would consist of positive-neutral energy.
Below the Greater Plains exists the Mid-Plains. The Mid-Plains is the area we all Dream in, and it is thought that this region is where creative ideas originate from as well.
Beneath the Mid-Plains are the Lesser-Plains, and on this Plain are Astral-Demons. They like to latch on to unsuspecting Dreamers that are close to the borders of these Plains. The Demons then cause Nightmares to awaken the dreamers in order to enter our dimension.
Below the Lesser-Plains exists a border between the Astral-Plain, and a dimension of anti-energy.
When the energy of the Astral-Plain and the Anti-Dimension merge, they form what looks as a giant fiery pit that we call Hell.
Those who have been to this area of the Astral Plain know of what I am talking about, and many refer to it as Hell. Many Demons dwell in this place and you can hear screams from the energy, which makes our consciousness split apart. Our consciousness is slowly being burned as its neutral particles are separated by negative particles binding with the positive or negative energy bound to it.
Positive, negative, and neutral energy are the three distinct types of energy that inhabit the human body. The positive keeps you in a positive mood and helps with motor functions of the human body and mind. Negative energy makes up our more aggressive attitudes, and enough of this energy in the human body can cause symptoms of depression and anxiety. The neutral energy is the pulse within the human brain that pulses throughout our nervous systems to send information back to the brain. These are the energies within Hell, and as the neuron energy separates, it binds with more condensed negative energy to form Demons.
Most demons like to run and only have basic intelligence due to the fact they like to leave this pit because it begins to harm them in the reverse fashion. These Demons then leave the pit and roam the lower Astral Plains gathering energy by creating nightmares inside the dreams of however wanders the lower plains while dreaming.
With enough energy these demons can bind on to a person, and that person brings that Demon into this dimension in the universe. These demons usually attack that person in this dimension to feed on the negative emotions it causes. As time progresses, these Demons get stronger until they become what is known as a Super-Demon.
It is very important to distinguish the differences between these Three Classes as each has different abilities. I use these differences to distinguish a small hierarchy within these Demons.
Super-Demons control and command Minor-Demons, and the Minor-Demons control but do not command Sub-Demons. This means that Demons can attack much like a wolf pack, and each will do their separate part to achieve their goals. I will discuss these goals in the Abilities and Separate Behavior of Sect-pack portion of this book.
As well as having three main Classes, there are also six different Types of Demons. There are some demons that do not attack human beings, mainly because they have a better energy source elsewhere, however all Demons are very Territorial, and will not allow intruders without a fight.
These Classes of Demons prefer the company of their own type. This shows a division within the Demons themselves that have formed what I call Sect-packs.
If a Demon can’t find any of its specific Type, it will roam, and attack by itself. These separate Sect-Packs seem to hate the other, or finds the other Sect-Pack a danger to its own Sect-Pack. What we would call primitive instinct, and primitive thought patterns emerge from these Demons as their behavioral patterns. These primal instincts derive from the neurons these entities absorbed to create them, which would be our most basic and primal instincts.
These Instincts cause the Demons to form separate Sect-Packs, each with their own hierarchy. This behavior separates these Demons into the six types of Demons.
The six types of Demons are broken up into six various groups determined by the element they are drawn to the most. These elements of Demonic types are Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, Cosmic, and Astral. These are the basic formation of a Sect-pack.
Demon types are classified as elemental types by the color of their energy:
Demon Energy Color Elemental Type
Description of Demonic Types: Sect-pack formation
1) Earth Demons: Demons that dwell within nature, trees and other plants.
a) Tree Demons: Demons that reside in trees and are very protective of its particular territory.
b) Animal Demons: Demons that take forms of animals and attack on site.
c) Forrest Demons: Demons that dwell in the ground of forests and help life humble forms to survive by attacking predators
d) Hermit Demons: Resides in rocks in areas of great magnetic energy fields. Docile entities and they hate confrontation, but will if provoked.
2) Fire Demons: Demons native to Hell that are the minions of the Grigori (Fallen) Angels.
a) Flame Demons: Collects contracted souls and the souls of the possessed.
b) Wraiths: Souls of the dammed and angered, who are allowed revenge and are controlled by a Grigori angel.
c) Warrior Demons: Guards of Hell.
3) Wind Demons: Demons that reside in the air, mostly protective of life, but some are territorial.
a) Banshee/sprite/faeries: Ones who warn of death and catastrophe.
b) Storm Demons: Demons of storms, causes massive storms when angered.
4) Water Demons: Demons that reside in aquatic areas and are very aggressive.
a) Drowning Demon: Demon that draws its victims to the water and pulls them in to drown them.
b) Black water Demons: Demons that appear as dark spots in the water and controls aquatic life.
5) Astral-Demons: Demons that reside on the lower Astral Plains and invade the dreams of unsuspecting sleepers and cause nightmares to feed them. They are the Demons that come through tears in the astral barrier from ouja boards and summoning rituals that are improperly performed. Also these demons will combine with stronger demons to form a legion.
a) Possession Demons: Demons that possess buildings/animals/objects to control a territory or clear one for a legion to reside. They will do anything to gain favor from the Grigori Angels.
b) Demon Lords: Demons that controls a legion and can twist a soul, usually the attacking entity during exorcisms.
c) Mimickers: Demons that mimic animal forms and the looks of other people close to the individual to attack. These are relatively weak demons that can possess a human being. Normally these types of demons reside in areas of ritual and burial and stay dormant until an energy source is felt or it is disturbed and brought forth. These demons follow its attached target and will not stop until it is exorcised and cleansed. These are commonly miss-classed as Earth Demons. The difference is its attacking and following the targets
6) Cosmic Demons: Demonic Entities of negative energy. These Demons usually do not even know they are Demons and exhibit massive aggression toward human beings that invade its territory.
a) Shadow: Demons that usually try to relive the life of the person whose memory fragments remain as well as their primal instincts. These Demons usually try to possess a human being and give the demon a sense of self. Also some shadows work directly for other demons and attack humans on site.
b) Tempters: Demons that enjoy feeding off of the negative energy you create by listening to these Demons, and following their demands. These Demons are very old and do not ever manifest a form for itself. They bind to the soul and cling to it until it is removed forcibly or through self-religious ways.
There are several more parts but that will be for another time;
