About This Place
So, you’re curious about what this place is, and what it’s going to become. You’re good to be curious. Curiosity makes the world go round. It’s the mother of discovery, and the father of trouble. So, first thing’s first, let’s start with the first question you are probably asking yourself:
What exactly is “diabolical confusion”?
This answer cannot be programmed, categorized, or easily referenced. It is generally a description for the things that happen to someone who is either possessed by an ‘evil’ entity or to someone who is attempting to confront that ‘evil’ entity. It is not a term that many people will be familiar with, however, anyone who has delved in the field of demonology will know exactly what it means the second you utter the words. It is not easy to locate a proper definition, however, the best description I have ever come across was from author Father Malachi Martin in his book, “Hostage to the Devil”. The below quote is from pages 19 and 20 of the HARPERSANFRANCISCO EDITION, published in 1992, ISBN 978-0-06-065337-8.
A new hallmark of the proceedings enters as the Breakpoint nears, and ushers in one of the more subtle sufferings the exorcist must undergo: confusion. Complete and dreadful confusion. Rare is the exorcist who does not falter here for at least a moment, enmeshed in the peculiar pain of apparent contradictions of all sense.
His ears seem to smell foul words. His eyes seem to hear offensive sounds and obscene screams. His nose seems to taste a high-decibel cacophony. Each sense seems to be recording what another sense should be recording.Each nerve and sinew of onlookers and participants becomes rigid as they strive for control. Panic – the fear of being dissolved into insanity – runs in quick jabs through everyone there. All present experience this increasingly violent and confusing assault.
The above description is a rather abnormal description of how my mind works. While my sense function as normal, my mind is what experiences those above symptoms. In movies, they mildly address these issues, for example, by having the ‘possessed person’ speaking in a normal voice, while at the same time having background voices whisper alternate words and languages, and maybe even sometimes additional voices speaking the same words at the same time as the main voice. This all occurs while feelings of fear, panic, reprehension, abhorrence, and the like are running rampany through your being.
This site is going to operate much like my mind – much like the diabolical confusions that occur during those events mentioned above. There will be no “main theme” to this site. It will cover a vast array of topics from movie, book and music reviews to technology reviews as well as my personal rants, raves, and thoughts. It will be a mixture of a personal blog and a review blog. It will also be a place for me to talk about and update anyone who cares about my literary projects, mainly a book (or hopefully a series of books) I am currently in the process of writing. Ultimately, there is no “aim” here, just erratic ramblings of an abnormally sane, logical and cold-hearted sadist. You’ve been warned.
Thank you for reading, and hopefully I can keep you entertained and interested. Time will tell.
