But some are not allowed to incarnate here or some have been here and dont want to leave although already dead and bodyless spirits. Those make contact to humans, offer them "supernatural" favors for soma. For example the dimmension of time is not much of a problem for them. Its easy for them to give hints about future events. Some of them have an endless hunger and help humans to build religions or empires. The only reason for such vast hirarchies is to farm soma big time. The most greedy ones are what we imagine as pure daemon. They really take over the human, steal their incarnation. In that regard our current civilisation exists only to feed Moloch.
Sounds like you've been reading Castanadas ?
He explained that sorcerers see infant human beings as strange, luminous balls of energy covered from the top to the bottom with a glowing coat something like a plastic cover that is adjusted tightly over their cocoon of energy.
He said that that glowing coat of awareness was what the predators consumed, and that when a human being reached adulthood, all that was left of that glowing coat of awareness was a narrow fringe that went from the ground to the top of the toes. That fringe permitted mankind to continue living, but only barely.
As if I were in a dream, I heard don Juan explaining that, to his knowledge, man was the only species that had the glowing coat of awareness outside that luminous cocoon. Therefore, he became easy prey for an awareness of a different order; such as the heavy awareness of the predator.

I have read all from Castaneda, i saw the movie Matrix and i have read a few other books, papers and websites about the topic.
But usually nothing exists until i was able to observe something myself. I am a victim myself
Just, unlike many people, i can be very stubborn and opposed it. All i can describe you is the shaman view of it.
Castaneda has two big topics in his books. First its the eagle and 2nd is the flier. The eagle was mentioned in one of the first books, the flier appears rather late. Both have similar qualities but its not clear if they are the same. If they are not the same, then in Castaneda's world there are a lot of beings (at least two species) who "eat" something we humans have. I tend to think they are not the same. Because Juan has different long term strategies to deal with the eagle, but only one directive to deal with the flier.
I do not agree with Castaneda in many points. This may be, because Juan is a descendant of very weird thinking, power and might orientated mages. Actually i think those mages or their ancestors probably have been one cause of the problem. I do agree that soma is a rare raw in this universe and it attracts beings. Btw. soma is not consciousness.
This makes it very complex. There is no simple "Satan-god" theory. Simplified there are two forces. There is the force stealing from others and there is the force reacting to the lack of a natural soma coating.
A natural apple from a tree has its wax like coating which keeps him stable for a long time. Just make a small hole with your finger nail into it and watch what happens. The decay and the bacteria who create the mildew are not the cause. Cause was the finger nail.
So, whatever out there is stealing/removing/disturbing soma is the cause. The little daemons
are just the effect. And they can be removed
They just enjoy to infect "damaged" people and even their dead corpses. They are destructive and humble. Any remaining soma will do for them. While they can be annoying, they are just part of the energetic cycle. Like any scavenger is.
Back to the mages. As today so in the past. One of the biggest ill thinking of "black" mages is the accumulation of energy/power. The more of this "energy" the more they can alter the world. Why not stealing it ? Why not creating a hierarchic political system ? A system where either the mage is the king/master or the gray eminence ? Quite stupid so far, but there is more
Lets assume the guy on the top of the "energy collector" is worshiping some kind of being and the being is asking for energy and more and more and more through centuries. I d say this society is pretty much f*cked up forever.
But it getting even more worse. Those guy taking part in this mess knowingly need a steady flow of soma or the little decay guys will grab them. Those guys would rot instantly but live because of the steady flow of soma. We are able to observe this, its the same pattern heavy drug addicts show. Demand and drug-related crime.
Independent of those funny mages there are sort of beings or distorted energy spots. If you are sensible then go out into the forest in a few weeks when the birds breed. Just not in deep forests, only in small ones surrounded by "civilisation". The eggs and the young birds attract them. But the grown up birds are able to deal with them on their own. As masters of vibrations i tend to think they are the most developed species on the planet anyways
