It is said that “God works in mysterious ways”, but so also, does “The Devil” for he is a master of deception. Our own defences, the phylogenetically inherited fight of flight response, created self deception as a method for dealing with emotionally and psychologically threatening information. These unconscious defences and the thoughts and actions that they produce, are the true source of all that we have labelled as evil. Inside us, we are our own gods, and our own demons.
