Patrick Harpur's spiritual vision is based on Neo-Platonism, Hermeticism and Jungianism. W B Yeats is frequently referenced. "Daimonic Reality" is an attempt to come to terms with fairies, UFO-s, lake monsters, ghosts and other paranormal entities. Who are they? Where do they come from? And what on earth do they want? Harpur believes that paranormal creatures are "daimons". They are temporary, personalized manifestations of an impersonal reality that could be called the World Soul, the collective unconscious or Imagination (in Coleridge's sense). Daimons are real, but not *literally* real. Rather, they are "daimonically" or metaphorically real. Daimons are both physical and spiritual, which explains why UFO-s, Bigfoot or fairies sometimes leave "physical" evidence, while nevertheless remaining highly elusive. Sometimes, daimons work through people, possessing them and forcing them to carry out paradoxical, seemingly meaningless actions, including hoaxes.Read more ›
