Last night I had a dream where I saw the world for what it is, but I can’t remember anything. At the end, the devil spoke to me in a voice more beautiful than anything I’d ever heard. He asked me if I’d like to go back to earth now, and warned me that if I returned I would forget everything I learned on the other side. I would forget all the cosmic wonders he showed me, and I would lose my knowledge of the nature of the world.
If I chose to stay, I would retain the occult, long-forgotten knowledge. But I would never be able to return to earth. I chose to return for now… And the devil bid me farewell and showed me the portal back to our universe of Nines. The portal to our entire universe was very small, and it was one among many. Like a formless blob of jelly with white specks throughout.
Every so often I have these dreams of a compassionate, understanding, incredibly beautiful devil who shows me the secrets of the world. He is so timeless and fills me with such nostalgia and longing to return to his side. I guess it isn’t really a “devil” in the terms of Christian mythology… He isn’t evil, and he has shown me infinitely more love than any God or man. But he reminds me very much of Lucifer.
