I think about a Lot how when we think about spirits, whether be energetic beings or faefolk or mythical figures or Japanese demons, they’re all depicted as wearing or acting or speaking like whatever time period and region they’re from because we humans made art and recorded findings.
Japanese demons in kimonos and ukatas and robes with swords and bow n’ arrrows. Greek gods and beings wearing togas and wearing wreaths or other headpieces. That whole deal.
What I think about a lot is how since these beings presented themselves to match the era, when in the modern days practitioners or fans go “I can’t believe that artist drew Satan in a leather coat and gave him piercings and tattoos, he looks so edgy!!!” you know, the thing is: he could totally be wearing that. Maybe when you summon Satan in your summoning circle he might project himself to you as a 90’s metal band bassist. Or just in sweats.
Of course, I see spirits that look like some wild inconceivable amalgamation of figures and shapes and energy. But think about it. Maybe that faerie is wearing a t-shirt and leggings just because they can, with some cool theme. You know we got cool designs for those these days. Maybe these spirits look like some pastel anime otaku.
Maybe that angel is in sweats. Maybe they all wearing sweats. Or look like a scene kid. Maybe that spirit you summon decides to look like Dwayne The Rock Johnson because that was the appearance you’d be most receiving to when they relay their message.
JUST THINK ABOUT IT. SPIRITS GOING ALONG WITH THE FASHION AND LINGO OF OUR TIME.
