I want to know more about the glare and reflection characters that appear in glare and reflection (?) please. Please be very detailed.
|A 2011 image made of childhood demon, as shown in the glare of light from a possessed desk lamp as seen in my old apartment on Julian Street in San Jose, marking just one of his several semi-regular appearances in light and reflections during attacks|
This is not magical in any way, shape or form; it’s similar to what we have in our own nature: consider the chameleon or pancake-flat leopard flounder (or cuttlefish). It’s a natural, physical attribute inherent to all demons so born; it is part of what defines them as a category of sentient life, and is a primary distinguisher between us and them (their longevity and undamaged brains and bodies being the other two—humans are crippled by them mentally prior to birth, and then damaged physically throughout their lifetimes).
You can see in the image I posted of a childhood demon in the glare of light for two possible reasons: 1) because cloaks are not perfect (“near-perfect” is an actual scientific term, by the way), so the glare was strong enough to generate some reflection; or,
2) the demon wanted to be seen, but not very touchable, so he used the light to be seen, but stayed cloaked so as to be permeable.
Speaking of permeability: that’s the only caveat to a cloak, if a demon wants to interact in our nature tangibly. You can’t just cloak for invisibility; altering molecules to cloak also makes them weightless, timeless and permeable. Demons bleed. If they are not permeable, they can be made to bleed, just like us. If they are not timeless, it’s going to be hard to get away from those who want to make them bleed—especially since, without gravity, they have to anchor from point-to-point to keep from drifting away, and that relies on such anchors to be in relatively close proximity to each other.
These facts are what has kept humans alive; if it was not for the fact that demons cannot interact with us as safely while uncloaked we would all be dead. And, that is their intent, and it is why they possess people. By using people as a “space suit,” there is no danger to them as they interact tangibly in our natural environment, rather only to the “suit.”
That’s all for now, as I’m knee-deep in dispatch queues and semaphores and the like, and multi-threaded programming waits for no man….
