"I am Six"

One of the more riveting episodes of "Paranormal State." This episode entitled "I Am Six" refers to what a possessing entity would reply when called out by the exorcist to declare his name. According to demonologist Lorraine Warren who was consulted by phone as the possession became more and more difficult a reply like "I AM Six" would indicate "legion" meaning a host of demonic entities. What was originally thought to be a house haunting turned out to a case of oppression or possession of one of the family members which required the services of an exorcist. There are many instances of scratch stigmata filmed which would have been very difficult to have been self inflicted especially the ones on her back.

and/or the phenomenon could be Patrick McGoohan...

and/or there was a character in Grant Morrison's "Invisibles" called Jon Six, someone who was very clued in to conspiracies and the arcane...

and/or...

I'm glad her & the host's G_d gave them the opportunity to test their faith...I guess this is proof that demons & the devil are a clear and present danger and that we should all accept Jesus pretty soon...

spooky stuff, m'dear :3

I have never been a church goer or a Bible reader, and I never tell people what they should do with their spiritual selves, but in your case - yeah - maybe you should give that a go - Jesus, Allah, the Buddha, Yahweh or whoever. They are all the same.

*chuckle* i was just going with the narrative of the music video you posted

(finding it odd that the phenomenon stopped with the help of an Episcopal priest...)

me, i realize it would be very easy of me to declare myself a Christian and find Jesus and whatnot, but my path is more difficult (i'm stubborn)...also, i'd rather stay here with the 'underdogs' instead of the 'winning team' :3

That is basically my approach as well, but I find it very interesting to observe the efficacy of these encantations and exorcisms in stopping bad situations. I have watched scores of these ghost hunter shows by now and witnessed many instances of demonologists in real time chasing away some truly nasty entities. There is often physical phenomena accompanying the exorcism which has been filmed in real time as the exorcism is taking place, so this goes way beyond placebo effect. It has changed my thinking about core religion independent of the organizational debasements that have tainted most religions today.
