To me, demons often take the role of an antagonist - in the good way or the bad. If there's too much happiness around, they'll be the kill-joy; if there's too much sadness, they will cheer people up. (If they care about them, that is...)

Also, I feel that demons have a strong connection to the negative side of all things, but more along the lines of noticing and accepting them, while others often like to close their eyes against the bad things in life. Which drives me crazy, at least.

Looking back on this, I think the rest of this post answers the question given. Still, that's just my opinion. But people seem to view different things as light and dark, and this post kinda backs that idea up.

Please tell me if you think that my impression is wrong.

There is something to that .
kahoku,
i read your article online a few days before i joined this site.i really liked it.i am not a demon.i am an angel.my mother is a demon and i know several.what i see about who is a demon to me -in this case the people i see as demons would likely not see themselves thusly(specially not mom).they are usually genius at chemistry early in life. and show some interest in alchemy and the occult.
the 'chaotic force' stuff is raw elemental energy -electric storms etc.in the early 90s there was a big fire across te bay.i could tell this was black magic gone awry and the angry elemental fire forces were indeed out of control-demon activity.'exhilaration and excitement'seems to be the key demon emotion vs angelic 'bliss of love'(and love of bliss!}
i feel the darkness when i see the form in my minds eye.this is simply a lack of light in the 'skin'.several of these demons have third eye open and charged up with light.2 were masters at ceremonial magic.i had the feeling that 1 came from a distant galaxy planet -and this decades before anything about starseeds came out-so i wasnt influenced by anyone in my thinking here.i think there is a planet of the demons or something out there.
i see demons as in the elemental evolutionary system.i see fire elementals responsible for eruption of volcanoes as demons or 'djinn'.i see demons as having work to do even tormenting people in hell is a job.anywhere lack of empathy is needed plus force as surgeons might,i think incarnated demons will be found.dont like spiritual ligt-in this way dark.
'chaos and dark night' is where the universe was formed.doesnt however explain the extraordinary deisre to learn ive seen in who i see as demons.doesnt mean i enjoy their company.
that is how i s it.then i wasnt asked,i know.yet i would like to see how some demons feel about this.
Angel emotions being love and bliss? Are you familiar with Sodom and Gomorrah? Keep in mind that nature is nature...electrical storms have perfectly scientific reasons behind them as do volcanoes, etc.

That aside, please post an introduction. Also, please use proper capitalization in your posts as it will make them easier to read and understand.
I wrote an introduction;it doesn't seem to be up to me when or if it is posted.Should i write another?Natural science is quite likely why the demons I know love science.I didn't spell that link out.I thought the people who it works for would have made it a long time ago.I am familiar with avenging angles.mostly from the Qu'ran.

Did you post it in the intro subforum here? We don't have a post approval system here so once you post it, it should automatically show up.
Hello all.
I do think it is important to make a delineation between the metaphorical demons and the real ones.

The metaphorical ones are the types humans create in their minds to try and explain the 'bad' things that happen to them or to the world in general, these metaphorical representations offer people something to blame all the worlds problems on. These mental effigies are used to represent all the 'negative' aspects of human nature and are given graphical forms so people have something to reference to.

Now the 'real' demons are quite a bit different in that they do not subscribe to the narrow views that humans hold of them; they also can be just as varied as humans are and can be kind, sympathetic and helpful but can also be more vindictive and vengeful if they have been deliberately and knowingly betrayed and exploited. Most can be appealed to and asked for forgiveness so long as the person who wronged them makes an effort to change but they are not the types to readily 'forget' either.

I get the impression that they have a penchant for holding a grudge for a very long time.
I thought of something. If it's hard to define what demons ARE, maybe we should define what demons ARE'NT.

If you eat meat, you're definitely not a vegan.
If you believe in a deity, you're definitely not an atheist.
If you have brown hair, you're definitely not a blond.

Is there something that means you're definitely NOT a demon?

Well..this is a toughie because the examples you pose relate to something 'concrete' but -if I may use a somewhat related example (though not necessarily demon) was a dream I had whereas I was talking to someone and that someone was saying that he felt dragons were vicious and destructive and me being the dragon (though cloaked in human form) said that not all of us are like that.

So perhaps the definition of a demon may, perhaps, refer more to a type of super-natural being that share many things in common with the human species but their 'alignment' is assumed to be 'dark' because of how their are whole life philosophy is viewed.
Perhaps demons in 'general' are more decisive and once they make a decision they rarely hesitate or reconsider. Just a thought really.
