An act of cruelty – Beelzebub #6

Feeling a distinct nip to the air, despite the summer night, I buttoned up my coat, then said: “But things have moved on since then. There’s the comforts of civilisation, which OK, you need to have a degree of affluence to benefit from, and sadly there are those that...

How to summon Slenderman

Slenderman is a thoughtform, otherwise known as a tulpa, servitor or egregore. And he – or it – can be summoned and banished. But why would anybody wish to do so? I guess some would do it for kicks, others to unleash the demonic meme on their enemies. But...

Witches Bridge – Beelzebub #5

The drive into Norwich city centre in the Daimler was largely uneventful. Making conversation, I asked Beelzebub where he lived. “Oh, I’ve got a little country pile in Hertfordshire, not far from Hatfield, and a flat in London, of course,” he replied. “So did you...

Split brain research

Do two selves live within us? Over the last few decades, scientists have come to the conclusion that the two halves of the cerebral cortex (which constitutes the top 80 per cent of the brain in man), though mirror images of each other, serve very different functions....

A chauffeur arrives – Beelzebub #4

So I went to the door and was confronted with a chap, probably in his mid-fifties, wearing a chauffeur’s’ uniform, complete with peaked cap. “Doktor Snake?” he asked. “Yes,” I said. “I’m Matt Black, Mr. B’s man, his chauffeur,” he informed me. “He’s awaiting you...

Carlos Castaneda: A life in sorcery

“I’m going to teach you how to set up dreaming,” the old Yaqui Indian sorcerer told his apprentice. It was the early 1960s and don Juan Matus and Carlos Castaneda were out in the wilds of the Mexican desert. Don Juan was attempting to teach Castaneda...

Unexpected caller – Beelzebub #3

Two weeks went by with no word from Beelzebub. I felt a tiny touch of guilt as I’d accepted the grand he gave me and it didn’t seem right that I hadn’t yet started on his literary project – the user manual. I considered phoning the number for Beelzebub Inc on the...

Auras

Are there any scientific explanations for the ability to see auras, halos, energy fields, etc, that reportedly surround the human body? When American aura-reader Mark Smith visited professional psychic Ginny Stringer for the first time, he noticed that her husband...

Shamans & aliens

At first sight we might not expect to find a connection between the spirit world of indigenous shamans, and the phenomena of alien abduction. But look closely enough and remarkable similarities between the two experiences can be found. The basic thing common to both...

Demonizing the world – Beelzebub #2

To be fair, when Beelzebub put his deal to me, it caught my fancy. A user manual to get humans out of the mess they’re in seemed pretty unique to me. Not something you turn down. Of course, I didn’t believe the old fellow purporting to be Beelzebub really was the...

Thoughtforms

Can thoughts take on physical form and acquire and independence of their own? During the early 1970s, writer and anthropologist Carlos Castaneda and his sorcerer teacher Don Juan Matus were sitting on a bench in down-town Mexico City. Don Juan was attempting to...

Ghost horses

Black stallions and silver-maned mares can serve their human masters to the very end – and beyond. Ghostly horses have often been seen or heard around Britain. The sound of thundering hooves and a horse’s rapid breathing, or the sight of a pale figure...

Arch demon from Hell – Beelzebub #1

I first met Beelzebub when I was having a cup of tea at the pease pudding stall on Norwich market. Considering Beelzebub is one of the most notorious arch-demons from Hell, meeting him wasn’t all that dramatic. I just thought he was a somewhat eccentric older fellow...

666: The Number of the Beast?

Does the feared number 666 really bring bad luck and death or is it all in the mind? People died too often on Route 666. Fifteen or twenty times a year someone would either collapse in the middle of the road, stumble across the asphalt too slowly, or stagger in front...
