Wights are one of the major themes of Anglomazdaism. A wight is a being , a something that exists in the world, apparently organised and active, transforming what is in its reach from one form to another.
Creature-Wights are ordinary living creatures, a complex of mind and body.
Man-Wights are human beings.
Nature-Wights are processes of the environment which may include the actions of creatures but with no central organising mind.
Place-Wights are wights associated with a particular place. Usually they are the processes that keep that place being the kind of place it is. Traditionally distinguished between House-Wights and Land-Wights.
Social-Wights are processes that guide the association of creatures, so that they are open to each others mental contents, and can act in co-ordination with each other.
Personality-Wights are forms of human personality, of character and memory, which manifest across more than a single person. God-wights are wights that are worshipped. Seemingly god-wights are close to personality-wights. Worshipping a personality-wight makes it more likely that you will imitate that personality and thus that the personality-wight becomes active within you.
Provider-Wights provide the material necessities of life.
Reporter-Wights transfer information about what is happening in one place to other places.
Speller-Wights are communicators, actors, poets, story-tellers, teachers, propagandists etc. They use their ability (e.g. through the use of their body, their speech etc) to affect the SIGHT of others in a calculated way to produce an effect.
Money-Wights manage the perception that persons have that they can make demands on others for transformations of value, or that they are beholden to make transformations of value for others.
Strong-Wights are able to make physical changes in the world against possible opposition.
Governor-Wights seek to manage the activities of all the relevant wights in a place so as to produce a desired overall effect.
Governor-Regulator-Wights seek to keep the nature of a place or of a society the same.
Governor-Transformer-Wights seek a wholesale change of the nature of a place or of a society into something different.
Personality-Wights – Some important types:
Indra: Puts self first but usually inclined to be helpful. Rooted in the world and engages with it. Strong and capable in worldly matters. Tendency to take the world as he finds it, and not look beyond the obvious and immediate. Thus open to deception by the cunning.
Sarosh: Loving, Sensitive, Listens, Intelligent, Wise, Selfless, Righteous, Honest, “Buddha nature”.
Satan: Satan has a thoroughly evil nature and makes a virtue of causing suffering and death to others.
Lucifer: Lucifer is wise like Sarosh, but has something of Indra self-centredness, which has turned dangerous as Lucifer realises he can meet his desires best by deceiving others. Satanic Lucifer is Lucifer who uses the services of Satan to extinguish his human feeling towards others so that he can manipulate them without concern for any suffering caused. Arguably however Lucifer is not always Satanic. In this case he may deceive and lord it over others but still try to minimize suffering.
“One day a selfish spirit discovered the Fire of Mazda burning unguarded and took some of the fire to light his private torch of wisdom. Since then he has been known as Lucifer – the Light-Bearer. With his flaming torch he can see clearly into the Divine world and understand what it is that motivates man, and how it is that men achieve their objects. Lucifer has no feeling for the well-being of others and uses his knowledge with criminal ruthlessness to satisfy his craving for power. Lucifer’s element is the planet Venus.”
Note that Satan is historically associated with concept of Angramain (Ahriman). In some streams of Zoroastrian and Christian thought the concepts of ‘Dreg’ (Error/Sin) and Angramain (Life-Decreasing/Hating Spirit) are fused so that Satan becomes the cause of all Evil in the world.
Giants are wights or processes at work in the world which don’t care for our well-being and may often be detrimental. Perhaps the original giants were big animals that predated upon and eat humans. A Demiurge is a kind of human giant.
Demons are personalities or spirits that are inclined to cause harm.
Moloch is a god who demands absolute obedience regardless of moral considerations.
Solomon is a human symbol of great wisdom in the service of power. Solomon creates corrupted religions to deceive people, and hobble them, preventing them pursuing their self-interest or the common good with full effectiveness. Solomon seeks to use giants and demons for his own purposes, but is also himself possessed by a demon. The Solomonic Magi model themselves after Solomon.
Jabulon is a false god who pretends to be Mazda. He seeks that people worship and obey him like Mazda. However his commands are the invention of those who lead his church, and do not conform to Arta.
