Demon Spies Come in from the Cold
King Solomon reveals secrets of Heavenly Espionage in his Testament. Read what was reported to him by the demon Ornias, that a Falling Star might tell the specifics of your death:
"It is thus, O king. We who are spirits can fly up into the air under the firmament, and we hover about among the stars and overhear the decrees that go forth from the heavens against the children of men when they are appointed to die. But we cannot abide there for long, and so we become weak, and fall like the leaves from the trees; and when men see us they say, 'Look, there is a falling star.'
"But they are not in truth stars that fall, since the stars have their appointed place in the heavens, like the sun and the moon; but it is we, the spirits of the air, who are in appearance like stars."
