Who Is The Snake Or Serpent?
Good? Bad? Both? So much has been written about "the snake" or "the serpent".
I'd love to hear any thoughts/beliefs you have on the topic.
I raised this because as I was typing the previous post in which I mentioned drugs I remembered about this guy a close friend of mine knew very well. I never actually met him myself. Long story short, my friend used to dabble with drugs somewhat and she was friends with a circle of people who were very much into experimenting with them in a big way, especially "trying to access other dimensions", tripping and all that kind of thing. This was when I was in my early twenties.
One day she started telling me about how she was really worried about this guy who was doing a lot of drugs. She said he told her that when he was "tripping" he encountered some kind of snake. I don't remember all the details but what I do vividly remember is this guy kept telling my friend that this snake was "consuming him". She was really worried about him, said he had begun to act very erratically and weirdly and speaking about how he was going to die. It seems this snake featured hugely in this and he became more and more obsessed with this snake which he said he "couldn't escape" and was "possessing him".
I didn't really know what to make of it - but this guy did die. Within a few months he was dead, supposedly of a drug overdose. My friend still says (30 years later) he was "consumed by the snake".
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Or this famous/infamous "snake" or "serpent" (single or plural) mentioned so often throughout history?
