Lately, there's been a lotta tornadic activity in Kansas, where I
live. A couple tornadoes touched down in the area around Kansas City
yesterday, and last weekend they were all over the place, over-
turning cars, blowing down houses, tearing off roofs, even lifting a
full grown horse up into the boughs of hardwood tree. Tornadoes
behave as though they're juvenile delinquints, or like giant
luciferic spirits whirling chaotically through the etheric plane.
Still, to this day, scientists cannot figure out the inner-dynamic of
a tornado. It behooves them. Tornadoes remain nature's mystery.
Anyone have any ideas on tornadoes?
*******Sorry to take so long to answer. A good general principle to follow---as one might expect, condemned by so-called "scientific" thought as absurdly anthropocentric---is that everything in nature harmful to the human being is a corruption of pure nature caused by the opposing forces. So, earthquakes and volcanoes, poisonous animals and plants---all represent an intrusion into the work of the upper Gods by the lower ones. It is the hierarchy known as the Archangels who have to do with the air. "Fallen" Archangels therefore are behind every form of destructive weather pattern, interacting with the water, where the Angels work particularly strongly. The name of one of the opposing powers in the New Testament in Greek was "diavolos", meaning literally "he who throws into a hurley-burley" or "throws into confusion." This being is usually identified with Lucifer. A luciferic activity is indeed a good way to describe the mysterious creation of tornadoes, waterspouts, and hurricanes, or rather, an activity caused by both Ahriman and Lucifer, the former being the director and the latter carrying out the actual creation of the confusion.
