It appears there exist associated groups of humans who work and evolve together. One strand of many purposes and experiences are those referred to as Luciferian. They believe they have come back, "fallen" back into 3rd dimension from the 6th dimension, in order to facilitate evolution by providing a negative polarity. This means that any atrocious thing executed by such a being is ultimately done out of love.
Dimensions and Spiritual Hierarchies:
Many occult schools conceptualize creation as a hierarchical structure. I personally see it more in the direction of what Tantric Buddhists call the "free play of phenomena:" I believe the divine subdivides itself into fragments that can interact with each other. This serves an ever-changing curiosity of all-that-is to know itself in ever new and diverse ways, a playful intelligence exploring itself in vast and infinite combinations. This part is quite similar to the hierarchical model; but in the hierarchical conceptualization of all-that-exists as playing with and exploring itself, there are varying degrees of awareness of how much the seemingly-severed-from-source fragment knows itself as creator and part of all-that-is. According to my understanding of these cosmologies, these degrees of divine awareness are called dimensions, or densities. A 6th density awareness would be very close to knowing itself as creator/source (8th density is considered re-mergence), versus a 3rd density awareness would still be struggling with the pain of perceived separation from the divine everything. And depending how you look at Earth Experience, you might find resonance in such models of hierarchies of consciousness.
According to their own lore, the soul group currently known as Lucifer, already advanced in self-understanding to 6th density, willingly chose to return back to a lower density in order to serve in order to speed up humanity's recognition of its being the creator itself, only disguised as a unique temporary form. They claim they have come in the guise of devil's advocate, posing opposition to all that humanity knows to be good and true. A favorite trick is to lead people away from self-knowledge. This includes the dissemination of spiritual ideas that require a mediator to access the divine, rather than pointing toward the divine's innate dwelling in all phenomena and thus also within everything that comprises human experience. It also includes more atrocious paths, such as putting a people through severe collective trauma (wars, genocides, and other human-caused suffering fall into that category), to which the human psyche responds, by nature, with fear and despair, both of which make trust in the goodness of life -- or in the love of God, as some would call it -- difficult, and therefore make people susceptible to manipulation in their search for relief from these so very painful emotions.
The Luciferian "devil's advocate" quality expresses itself as "the force that always intends evil and always creates good," as Goethe put it. Ultimately, the way I see it, all forces serve the creator, independent from whether we perceive them as good or evil, whether they support self-knowledge or lead away from it. Of course on the long run, all forces serve self-knowledge. If I've been following a false lead for a while, eventually I'll figure it out, turn around and pursue another lead with fervor. In that sense, all forces are good. And definitely, all forces are loved. Without love, they couldn't' exist. Their mere existence proves that they are ultimately made of love. At least to my eyes, it looks like that.
In order to serve its agenda of being able to provide "evil", a source of painful polarity that facilitates and speeds up growth and awareness, the Luciferian soul group puts its human incarnates through rigorous training from birth on, and often already in the womb. Not an insider, I am grateful to not be aware of the details involved at the different levels of their soul hierarchies. Because believe me: it's dark.
However, through friendship with one I believe to be a Luciferian incarnate, I began to research the subject. After being utterly perplexed by my friend's (sometimes I call him anti-friend, for comic relief to my own psyche as needed) secret and almost invisibly brutal behavior, I needed information that allowed me to understand where he was coming from. Simply saying "he is evil," as many of my friends felt, isn't cutting it for me. Because if he's evil, how come all the things I experienced at the effect of the (anti-)friendship ultimately made me smarter, wiser, and much more aware? How come to this day I experience deep love and trust, even though on the human level, I've come to expect overt malicious remarks and covert devious actions from him? And how could anything be "evil" when it is created by, consists of, and must therefore be loved by the force that makes us all? Because the concept of evil does not work with my logic, I needed to find a different way to make sense of what I was observing of my dear anti-friend.
And in this way, I have come to learn something about Luciferianism, and the artificial soul design employed by its lineages. My research is based both on articles and publications, as well as etheropathic communications with a dear friend who goes by Thoth. Occasionally, other spirit friends will offer their clarity. But I'd say Thoth is my closest and most knowledgeable source. I trust him to hold the highest vision of all, while being straightforward about where adjustments are ready to be made. He's mischievous and full of laughter, catching me by surprise with his humor, yet he can be unexpectedly deeply serious. His wisdom and loving understanding of humanity's foibles are unparalleled.
In my usual disclaimer, I'd like to state that really what I know is but a tiny fragment of a much larger picture, and that I can provide no actual proof, other than a friend's website and the links leading from it and my notes from when Thoth told me to get a pen and paper and record what he was about to explain. If you have anything to add, please feel free to email me or leave a comment. I will be grateful for any further clarifications. Given this, onward. Here is the meat:
Creation of Dissociated Personalities/Soul Parts through Deliberate Exposure to Trauma (Yep, ouch):
The basics that you need to know are the following: The Luciferian's children's psyche is split into multiple personalities through deliberately inflicted trauma. Splitting is a defense mechanism the psyche does automatically under extreme duress - you may even be familiar with some of those reactions yourself. Me, for example, I was terrified before surgery as a young child. My mother requested that I shouldn't cry so she wouldn't feel scared. I dissociated, so I didn't need to feel it, and didn't cry, instead I smiled, becoming the pleasing heroine to my mother. Another one I remember is a bit later. The thought was: If I always stay in this state of intelligence, I will never have to feel this pain ever again.
And that thought is one of the tricks that is used deliberately: "If I do X, I will never ever have to feel Y again." When a human is not only discouraged from (like my mother did with me) but actually punished for their true experience, perception, feelings, or needs, they will develop alter egos designed to please the punisher in order to avoid further pain and terror. The true experience remains hidden, enveloped by the terror or whatever other pain was experienced when the alter ego was created. I suspect most of us have at least some experience with dissociation under duress. Usually we can integrate later, when we have time and space and the inner safety to reflect on the experience. But when the trauma that triggers dissociation is deliberately and forcefully kept from healing and integration, multiple personalities arise. The younger the child, the stronger their ability to dissociate: You get to a child early enough, and you can split their psyche into 7000+ personalities. This is such a high resolution of multiple dissociated personalities that the picture of such a person appears analog -- not unlike digital photography. You can no longer see the individual pixels, and the person moves seamlessly between these compartmentalized aspects of themselves. Therefore they appear as highly functioning, however, underneath that front, their minds are splintered into a million pieces.
This splitting of self-understanding is used not only in ritual abuse, but also for purposes of manipulating another's will. It looks to me that sometimes ritual abuse is done for the purpose of breaking people's will and putting them someone else's; but I think sometimes it is simply done for its own sake; susceptibility to another's will then is a side effect.
And What For?
The reason this dissociating mechanism is handy for warfare and other endeavors designed to win and succeed over others is that through dissociation humans can endure higher levels of pain and access abilities that might otherwise be compromised during stress. It also lessens their empathy, which allows them to be more ruthless in war, business, politics, science, and religion. It's a way to create a group of people uninhibited by pain, conscience, or loving concern. Instead of empathy, they use intelligence and emotion-free calculation to make decisions. You can see how this could be helpful, to be able to look at a situation without emotion. And in that sense, it offers a version of power, of being in control. Ah - not to ever lose it - wouldn't it be nice. Or would it?
In its darkest aspect, these mechanisms are used to deliberately create soul parts the owner is not aware of and which are capable of doing things the conscious owner isn't. One typical use is what's known as Manchurian candidates; but other purposes employ this rogue-soul-part method, as well, including spy operations, sex slavery, political/public front people, and a lot of things I don't know and probably don't want to know.
How are soul parts useful if the owner isn't aware, you wonder? Who runs the show then? Yeah, that's nasty: it's usually what's called a "handler," someone aware of the keys that will trigger the person into their unconscious soul parts. The handler becomes in charge, instead of the conscious mind of the owner of the body and soul aspects in question. Yep. Boohoo. Hypnosis, shamanism, and brain wave technology at its worst: as a tool for manipulation of another's will. It is one of the darkest forms of slavery, and the most difficult part of it is that the person is usually not aware. Or if they are aware or becoming aware, the trance is so overpowering, it's hard to break: The hypnotized mind will have a hard time discerning which impulses originate from natural inner momentum, and which ones originate from subconscious hypnotic programs.
