These are the secrets that we keep. The monsters of the deep, and their mother, Echidna. She is a drakaina (feminine form of drakon), a fearful female bloodthirsty dragon with the face and torso of a beautiful woman who has dark black eyes, and the hideous body of a coiling serpent.
"The divine Echidna, stubborn-hearted: half a fair-cheeked nymph of glancing eyes, and half a monstrous serpent terrible and great, spotted, ravenous, beneath the coverts of the holy earth. And there is her cave beneath, under a hollow rock, afar from deathless gods and mortal men, where the gods appointed her a glorious habitation wherein to dwell: and under earth she hath Einarima in her keeping—dread Echidna, a nymph deathless and ageless for evermore."

In the Old Testament, the nocturnal demon Goddess of Death, Lilitu (Hebrew: לִילִית Lîlîṯ or Lilin) is the head of the female demons, and is said to be the main cause of all the ills and diseases that especially afflict children. She was originally associated with the Succubus female and with a demoniac first wife of Adam. “When Adam, doing penance for his sin, separated from Eve for 130 years, he, by impure desire, caused the earth to be filled with demons, or shedim, lilin, and evil spirits” (Gen. R. xx.; ‘ h‘. 18b).
The meaning of the Hebrew term Lilith (Lilit or Lilim), is "night creatures", "night monster", "night hag", or "screech owl." In the Akkadian language of Assyria and Babylonia the terms lili and līlītu mean spirits, and in cuneiform inscriptions from Mesopotamia, Līlīt and Līlītu refers to disease-bearing wind spirits.(Wikipedia)
Like most demons, she seeks to enter into here victim host and cause the disease while overwhelming the soul, or what we can call “seizing" the victim (“ahazo." Shah. 151b; Yoma 88a. 84a) by taking over their central nervous systems by secret infiltration through the hidden canals that are their veins into the waters that represent their blood. (more…)
All insects, animals, and mammals such as humans are infested with many different kinds of worms which today we call parasites. Many life forms on earth can live symbiotically with these parasites, but sometimes they can also become sick with illness and even almost die from these worms as in the case of a 50-year-old Chinese man who was admitted to a UK hospital complaining of headaches, seizures, an altered sense of smell and memory flashbacks.
His doctors didn't know what was wrong so they ordered various tests that came out negative. They then did an MRI scan showing that he had an abnormal region in the right side of his brain, showing inflammation, but no tumour. (more…)
Twinkle, twinkle, little star worm, / How I wonder what you are! / Up above the world so high, / Like a diamond in the sky.
These shiny lights in the sky look just like bright stars twinkling in the night, but they are actually bioluminescent glow worms (Arachnocampa luminosa) hanging from the walls of a cave in New Zealand. These bright worms are larvae and adult larviform females that are about the size of a small mosquito.
