he is an alien proper (which I'm most inclined to concur with), or
belongs to our hierarchy just like Lucifer.
Lucifer, however, is a lot like us, very human and also divine,
brother of Christ, Light-bearer. Origin of egoism and selfishness,
but honest. Ahriman is strange and fascinating. He is ice cold,
prefers extremely deep below zero temperatures (global warming can't
be his thing), extremely arrogant, deceptive, and a liar. He is also
intellect itself, intelligence itself; we would have no brains
without him. No brains, no math, no science, no techonlogy, no
economy, no politics without Ahriman. Plus, of course, statistics.
Insurance is his favorite casino game: You bet you get sick and he
bets against it. The huge scam exposed in Michael Moore's "Sicko" is
Ahriman through and through.
