Jay Weidner: Archons are real!

What is mental illness and where does it come from?

Is it a psychological state of being inherited through genetics? Is it a condition that emerges after a severe traumatic experience? Or is it a psychic virus cast upon unsuspecting individuals from the hidden realm?

These are all complex questions, but the answers share one common theme – that of multidimensionality.

In this, a follow up to our recent discussion about the metaphysics of mental illness, I bring in two well researched individuals to try and tackle this very big subject. Jay Weidner, an authority on Hermetic and Alchemical traditions, and Paul Levy, consciousness researcher and author of the landmark book, Dispelling Wetiko – Breaking the Curse of Evil. Needless to say, this conversation was riveting, and revelational, and after you listen in, you may never look at mental illness the same way again.
