Summoning a Corn Demon

Witnesses in the vicinity of a Southern Illinois town claim to have witnessed a bizarre ritual taking place in a field at 12:30 AM October 12, 2012. The town is of mixed European settlement, and has a bit of age to it – old even for the long-settled Mississippi valley. It is marked by houses built in the old and simpler – more organic, perhaps – municipal plan of the late 1880s through early 1900s. This is the sort of place troubled by less intense matters, or at least it appears to be upon cursory examination. But it is a sinister place by night, the old cemetery in particular. This is a place of curiosities and quaint ghost stories. A red lady is supposed to walk the upper stair of an insurance office that was once a small hotel. Lincoln is said to have visited the place. So too, Alexis d’ Tocqueville. It is a place with a former Governor’s residence, and it sports a significant university. It is also said to be haunted by escaped slaves who did not quite make it to freedom. In the vicinity, a massacre is said to have been carried out by American settlers against the indigenous inhabitants.
It has also been plagued since the late 1960s – so say locals and resident law enforcement professionals – by devil worship.
The Vicar is not one to put much store in tales of Satan-worship. All too often, these are the product of fevered fundamentalist imaginations, mistaking the weird late night romps of college kids for more significant rituals. Worse yet, it is not uncommon for the uneducated and uninitiated to conclude that a pagan ceremony is targeted upon contacting the Devil. Ignorance is bliss, except when it leads to witch hunts and bigoted agendas.

The ritual in question is however a disturbing one. If true, the event is said to have been connected to harvest and drought; the witnesses perhaps strayed too close for comfort. Kathy (a Nurse) and Maya (a CNA) are mother and daughter, and they reported to the Vicar that they had gone out in search of their dog Sasha, who frequently escapes from their yard to romp in nearby fields. These same fields have been ravaged by the country’s most significant drought in 56 years (the mystical 11) and it perhaps should come as no surprise that a community so closely tied to farming for so long might harbor remnants of a harvest-centered cult. Rumors of this sort of thing run deep in the American consciousness, thought we rarely concern ourselves with such things in an age where most people think food comes from big-box grocery and retail outlets.

Careful research will lead the curious to the conclusion that produce actually grows in the ground, and it has to be carefully tended before considerable labor goes into harvest and transport. Farmers make up a tiny percentage of America’s workforce these days, and the labor working those farms is often neither legal nor English-speaking. But the rhythm and rhyme of the wheeling seasons goes on apace.  We are no less bound to the land than were our distant ancestors.
The mother and daughter duo report that they discovered Sasha had squeezed out through the broken gate of their back yard sometime after 11:00 PM. This was not an odd occurrence, certainly, so they grabbed flashlights and set off in the direction she usually went.
“She usually runs off across Route 4,” Kathy told our investigator, “so we just worry about her getting hit. But that late at night, there isn’t much traffic.”
“Across Route 4” in this case means that the dog goes from a quiet subdivision to a series of corn fields backed by dense stands of trees. This is typical Southern Illinois country, and those readers who have traveled the region will understand that by night, this can be scary territory. Kathy and Maya are used to chasing their dog under these circumstances, however.

The two women proceeded into the fields, where they soon found they could hear Sasha barking. These sounds led them about a mile into the corn field, near the edge of a stand of trees. The dog seemed to have continued into the woods, probably following the scent of other dogs or small game. “She’s an English Setter – a hunting dog,” Kathy said. “My ex-husband trained her.”
The two women led our investigator into the trees for perhaps 500 yards to the point where a group of large, expensive homes are situated along what the women describe as a “private road”.
“It’s not really private, though,” Maya stated. “It’s more that nobody comes down here except the people who live back here. We don’t really know these people. I think [redacted] the one lawyer with the office on Main Street owns one of the houses.”
What drew the women into the area on the night of the 12th was the fact that a large bonfire could be seen burning in another, more secluded stand of trees to the east of the “private” neighborhood. Sasha was nowhere to be found by this point, and they could no longer hear her barking. But the women were motivated by something else.
Kathy told our investigator that they thought they could see people around the fire, and they wondered if someone – perhaps the rich folks living in the vicinity – were having a bonfire party. They concluded that Sasha may have been drawn to the people, and they could probably get away with a bit of trespassing if they were searching for the dog. They decide to walk the additional mile or so to the next clump of woods.
“That was not a bonfire party,” the older woman informed our investigator. Both women are of a scientific mindset, the result in part of their professional training. Kathy has been a nurse at a local hospital for more than 11 years; before that she worked in medical offices as a receptionist and a CNA. Her daughter is following in her footsteps. “We go to church,” Kathy said, “but I don’t think either of us ever worry too much about the dark side of spirituality. I don’t really buy a lot of the ghostly stuff and exorcisms and demons I really think are just silliness. I still do. But what we saw was a group of people who must feel differently.”
The mother and daughter describe a lurid and weird scene, with around a dozen black-robed figures surrounding a fire in the midst of a small clearing in the copse. According to the women, these individuals wore white masks, largely featureless, and had their hoods drawn up. Maya remarked, “It reminded me of Eyes Wide Shut.”
The group was apparently engaged in a fairly standard summoning ritual, as one individual brandished a ceremonial dagger and chanted phrases. When asked if they could recall what was said, both women indicated that a lot of it did not sound like English. The phrases that they did catch include, “Spirits of Earth and Sky” and “Dragon of Damuse”.
Our investigator asked about pictures, assuming that both women had taken along cellular phones. In response, Kathy stated, “Oh, I thought about it for about ten seconds. But then we looked at each other and we were both like, ‘not a good idea’. We pretty much turned and ran the other way.”
Maya added, “This town gets weird around Halloween. I didn’t think it would get that weird, but either way, I don’t want to know any more about it. We both swore we wouldn’t even discuss it but my mom ended up bringing it up to Dr. [redacted] at [redacted] University. And then there was that UFO out in Freeburg just the other day. We thought maybe it was connected.”
An associate of the Vicar’s at the local University made a referral, since biology departments do not accept the validity of occult rituals as a general rule. While the mother and daughter noted the use of the phrase, “Spirits of Earth and Sky,” connecting the latter usage to the timely appearance of the UFO – not just in Freeburg, IL, but also seen in Hecker, Milstadt, Mascoutah, and as far south as Pickneyville – a different phrase caught our perhaps more esoterically trained ears. It is this single phrase that makes the whole episode worth investigating and reporting on, since it is unlikely to have been added if the experience was the result of running across weird revels in the night. It is equally unlikely that it would have been thrown into a fabricated account.

“Dragon of Damuse” is likely a misinterpretation of the phrase, “Dragon of Tammuz”. The women claimed to have been in the trees, perhaps 30-50 yards from the ritual they briefly witnessed. The Dragon of Tammuz seems to be a reference to kin of the celestial dragon slain in Babylonian myth by Marduk. The serpentine monster, often called Tiamat, is in some occult sources the mother of a whole race of demonic entities. Some of these include harvest or planting oriented creatures and the use of the term Dragon of Tammuz almost clinches the connection. Tammuz was the Babylonian god of the harvest. His “dragon” could well be a simple way of identifying a serpent-like monster that hunts the corn fields – which would be a fair mythic rendering of the Midwest’s recently surfaced Corn Demon. The creature described by some migrant witnesses is a serpentine being clearly related to Maya depictions of a similar entity. Investigations and reviews of relevant literature carried out by staff here at the Lamp in August and September yielded an interesting connection between harvest and planting sacrifice ceremonies in hundreds of early cultures, and the tendency even today for murderers to deposit bodies in cornfields and for individuals to go missing in the vicinity of the same. The conclusion: If any phenomenon has ancient roots, it’s the notion that farm fields are inhabited, controlled or patrolled by spiritual entities with interesting tastes and appetites, including a need for human sacrifice.

On the heels of this report from Southern Illinois that a strange ritual occurred in the fields, a well-publicized news report was logged by KSDK.com of a mysterious light in the sky:
http://www.ksdk.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=344461
The upshot? It was a satellite, of course. These things always are, when they aren’t a weather balloon or a secret US Air Force project…
Our dear friends at ATS spotted the same story from a different angle, here:
http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread893290/pg1
The obvious question is whether or not the ritual these women claim to have witnessed was a legitimate occult summoning. The idea that a group of people in a small Midwestern town might engage in occultism is neither surprising nor particularly scary; interest in this sort of entertainment goes back to ancient times and there is very little that has changed within human beings that we should expect the death of mysticism. If what they saw was a summoning, then it stands to reason that it runs a small percentage chance of being effective, since we have no idea as a species what it really means when our witch-doctors and wizards speak of “summoning a demon” or “contacting spirits”. Literature abounds on the matter; it is always possible that the mystical means of summoning contact entities from off-world taken by our ancestors to be spiritual forces or divine beings.

This is a topic we have often visited and revisited here at the Lamp, sometimes to the delight – other times to the dread – of our readership. It remains an important point: In a nearly infinite reality, we cannot rule out possibilities of any kind, no matter how sharply Occam’s Razor may cut. It’s an uncomfortable, utterly statistical argument that skeptics cannot stand because it cannot be refuted, which makes it all the more potent.
If – and we are almost always dealing with big IFs in this business – the ritual was real, then the next question is obvious: Did the UFO manifest in response? And will a new Corn Demon sighting be forthcoming? Or has the damage already been done by the Corn Demon, and we are merely treading along in the wake of Tammuz’s Dragon? This kind of activity may indicate that a group of unknown size and uncertain purpose has been controlling or attempting to control ancient occult forces linked to agriculture. On the surface, that seems absurd. But the power to cause drought is simultaneously profound and well-attested. Francisco Maria Guazzo collected thousands of these stories in the course of his career as a Papal investigator of the Malficarum. And he drew heavily on secondary sources, which often drew on secondary sources of their own. While few serious researchers will take ghost stories from the Middle Ages at face value, the sheer weight of human belief in these phenomena manifests a corpus of proof all its own.

What caused our long drought? What is causing climate change? Understanding meteorologic forces is fine, but the function of Science is not and has never been the establishment of Truth. Rather, Science deals in Fact and the Facts collected are not ever assumed to have instant and perfect linkages to other factors of a query. The whole point of Science is to describe the what and the how of things. Causes and larger questions of why a thing occurs are a separate issue, except for the unimaginative. Knowing how the Sun burns is not the same as knowing why it is where it is and what it thinks about the planets that circle it.
The essence of a materialistic time is the certain and dogmatic article of faith that there exists a division between the animate and inanimate. But this is not the basis of the Occult systems that underpin the magic of rulership. If one accepts the concept that the elites have among their number cadres of Occult practitioners, then it is almost a certainty that these belief systems are survivals and reinterpretations of the pagan mystery cults. As such, they are methods for ruling the remaining 99% of the earth’s populace. These methods are both overt and covert; no one can doubt the power of monetary control coupled with the capacity for violence represented by military hardware, soldiers and police forces. But it is the covert mechanisms that rob free peoples of courage and integrity.

Kongzi taught that “Symbols rule the world, not rules and not laws.” Mastery of symbols and their power is the core of real magic. Those who master the symbols rule the world, and may even influence the forces we think of as natural and timeless.
At the very least, someone may be trying to summon and control the power of an ancient and potent occult spirit with dominion over our fields and our food supply.
Or some nuts out in the boonies were having a weird good time.

Who and why he removed 10 pages from the Devil’s Bible?

One of the largest medieval manuscripts is the so-called Codex Gigas, also known as the Devil’s Bible, because it has a large image of the Devil on one of the pages .

The weight of the book is 75 kg, its width is 49 cm and its height is 89 cm. It is estimated that it would take at least 30 years for one person to write and draw the whole book.

According to legend, however, it took only one night to do so for an unknown monk living in the 13th century AD. The same monk was imprisoned in a cell for violation of discipline and vows, and a much more severe punishment awaited him. In an attempt to avoid punishment, the monk decided to surprise the superiors with a book that described ” all the knowledge of the earth .”

To write this book, the monk turned to the Devil himself for help. In exchange for his soul, the Devil created the Codex Gigas overnight.

Initially, the Devil’s Bible was stored in the monastery in Podlazice, in the territory of modern-day Czech Republic, near the town of Chrudim. After a while it was moved to the monastery in Brumov. In 1648, it was stolen by Swedish soldiers and taken to Sweden as a prey. In 1649 the manuscript was placed in the Royal Library of Stockholm, where it is still preserved.

There are 310 pages in the Devil’s Bible, but there were 320 pages before. So, 10 pages were taken and what was written in them is still unknown to anyone.

It is officially believed that the statutes of the Benedictine monastery are written on these 10 pages, but many conspiracy theorists are sure that no one would extract the written rules of the monastery from such a huge and valuable book, and that the missing pages clearly contain much more important information.

For example, the prophecies about the Apocalypse. Or, the so-called “devil’s prayer”, the reading of which, under certain conditions, is described on the vanished pages to summon the Devil. At the same time, the sheets did not just fall out of the bound book because of old age and decay. They have been deliberately removed. They were cut off from the Codex and this is evident from the cropping of these pages.

None of the historians knows when and by whom these pages were removed. In the 16th century, one of the mystics of the Paracelsus Circle became interested in the Code, and in 1590, his student visited the Brumov Monastery to study it.

The Code also attracts the attention of the Holy Roman Emperor – Rudolf II, who sought occult information in it. He even ordered the Codex to be transported to his Prague Castle. Then the legend of the Devil’s Bible began to spread. Most probably, it was Rudolf II who tore these pages, finding in them the occult records he needed.

Another oddity of Codex Gigas is that no one has even tried to rewrite this book. In those centuries, when printing was not yet invented, important manuscripts were constantly rewritten to reproduce.

Moreover, even more voluminous and complex texts have been rewritten than the Devil’s Bible.

Black Cats and Witches

In some areas where people live, black cats that are completely black in fur, are a rarity, and this factor adds to their mysterious trait. Also, in the night, a black cat can be practically invisible, so people in the darkness see just the two eyes of the cat, which can be a pale shade of green, orange, or yellow or be amber colored.

Many superstitious people were terrified, thinking an invisible creature or demon with 2 eyes or simply 2 floating, glowing eyes were staring at them in the dark. Black cats were the traditional and most common creatures that lived with witches even though witches had other animals around them, at times, as rats, dogs, ferrets, birds, frogs, toads, and hares. These small animals were often kept in pots or baskets lined with sheep’s wool and fed various things including milk, bread, meat, and blood. Often, such animals would have the same affectionate nick names or common names that parents give their children.

When a person, for example, an old lady, especially a person who lives alone, has, for example, a pet black cat; there are people who strangely talk to their pets as though they are human beings and can understand every word. Centuries ago, when belief in witchcraft was very strong, many people that saw and heard a person talking to an animal seriously wondered if the animal was a spirit or demon in animal form that attends and obeys its master- a witch. The occult name for such an animal is called a familiar. There are other reasons that can make people further wonder if a person is a witch; as that person being unnaturally mean; highly aggressive; hateful in personality, and if such a person were also very ugly, it would add to their resentment by others.

The American author, Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849) wrote a short horror fiction story called “The  Black Cat” that would reinforce the idea of a black cat having supernatural powers. In that story, a black cat gets its revenge against its owner who has abused it, then horribly mutilates it, and later kills it.Once, in the 1970’s, there was an occult supplier who sold, among many other things, tall candles in the shape and color of a black cat. The sales pitch was that the black cat, being a symbol of bad luck, when burned in candle form would destroy that black cat image and this became a ritual for good luck.For many, many years, black cats have gotten a bad rap; a really unfair, undeserved reputation of being evil and harmful to humans. Some people, over the years, tried to undo; reverse this situation by claiming that black cats are actually good luck. In certain parts of Europe, for instance, black cats are looked upon as actually bringing good luck.

Some folks, centuries ago, thought that at times a witch’s familiar or familiars was a person or people that , from the power of witchcraft, got turned into an animal or animals as punishment for somehow angering a witch.Black cats began to develop an association with evil in the minds of various people, centuries ago, from the extreme worry that any black cat there was could be a demon in disguise. Many people developed a great fear, distrust, and revulsion to all black cats and would chase them away, at times even throwing small objects as stones at the animals.Various people began to believe that the black cat, from its demonic significance, brought bad luck, especially if a black cat crosses your path.

Satanic pacts to create “immortal guerrillas” in Colombia?

For many years Colombia has been hit by a dangerous guerrilla that has not been eliminated, why? The reason could be more macabre than many think: Satanic covenants.

People who, in one way or another have had contact with the guerrillas, tell how they have witnessed guerrillas who are shot, get up and continue fighting armed, some with a simple machete.

Although it sounds like something impossible, it is a speech that is repeated constantly among the interviewees. One of the most chilling stories tells us how, during a night like any other, a squad of paramilitaries was awakened and taken to a hill in the jungle.

In front of them lay a boy who was, if anything, 16 years old. The women were trained on the other side and the commander, with a machete in hand, called one of them and handed it to him, ordering him to behead him.

The woman said she could not do it and, in a threatening voice, the commander shouted: “He who does not serve to kill, serves to be killed.”

With nothing else to do, the woman dropped the machete on the supplicant boy, but could not finish the work. The commander took the machete and with a certain blow, beheaded the young man in front of everyone.

Without hesitation, he got up and exclaimed: “Welcome to the ACC, I am commander 030 and I must deliver three thousand souls to the devil.”

“Commander 030” was one of those immortal soldiers who, based on satanic covenants and sacrifices, had obtained eternal protection. To this myth are added declarations of United States military factions that have faced the Colombian guerrillas.

Some say they shot them with AK47 rifles and saw how, without any protection, they received the bullets and they did not pass through them.

They simply did not harm them beyond a bruise. Other more extremists say they have seen them become invisible, heal at great speeds and disappear from one moment to another.

Many communities that live in nearby areas where the guerrilla is alive, tell how these people use prayers, rituals, sacrifices and satanic pacts.

These stories are supported by the latest findings made by the Colombian and US military, where they have found “picket houses” with prisoners, still alive, dismembered.

Some captured say that this is part of one of the many satanic rituals and pacts they perform for their protection. Sounds really amazing and macabre at the same time.

But many of these guerrillas have been seen killing soldiers armed with guns using a simple machete, which leads us to really think about the chances of this being real …
