Spirits of Darkness, a.k.a. the Dragon, consists of angels who have formed an alliance with Satan and are subsequently consigned to Satan's realm in Earth's etheric region. This happens periodically (with a cycle on the order of centuries or millennia), and the latest example occurred in 1879, about a decade before the Age of Satan (a.k.a. the New Age) was declared by Satan via Nietzsche and "Jack the Ripper." For details on the latest battle between the Archangel Michael and the Dragon, see Fall of the Spirits of Darkness. The gist of this battle is that the progressive hierarchy decided that mankind is ready for certain formerly secret information about the spiritual world, and this group of angels didn't agree, and they subsequently allied themselves with Satan and were cast down to Earth, from where they do their best to prevent us from absorbing this information correctly, largely by unleashing an epic disinformation campaign.
They can also literally take possession of people they find useful, and who cannot resist their influence. I suspect that Jared Loughner is an example of one such puppet, and that the Spirits of Darkness used him to carry out a terrorist attack intended to have an effect similar to those which have become routine in the "war on terror" (Satanist reign of terror) zone. Note that his victims included a little girl and some elderly people, so the attack was actually an expression of Satan's intent toward mankind, and not directed only against the federal government.
However, Rudolf Steiner alluded to the possibility that Spirits of Darkness can also take possession of scientists in order to thwart our spiritual development:
I have told you that the spirits of darkness are going to inspire their human hosts, in whom they will be dwelling, to find a vaccine that will drive all inclination towards spirituality out of people's souls when they are still very young,... This is merely to give you a particularly striking example of many things which will come in the near and more distant future in this field — the aim being to bring confusion into the impulses which want to stream down to earth after the victory of the spirits of light.

When I recently made an effort to understand how organized Satanism is run, it occurred to me that the Spirits of Darkness probably play a part, since Satanism's mass-recruitment phase got underway about a decade after they fell to Earth, and because they have the ability to feed people false ideas, along with impulses of feeling and will (the last of which can turn people into their puppets). The vast amount of BS that has been unleashed since their fall is consistent with their effort to prevent us from properly assimilating certain formerly occult information which has been made public or exoteric. Such collections of BS as Crowley's writings, Pike's writings (which were written during the course of the aforementioned spiritual battle), Blavatsky's writings, Alice Bailey's writings, and A Course In Miracles (which was channeled, i.e. fed to certain people's minds), for example, reflect this intent.
Then it occurred to me that I have potential evidence that the Spirits of Darkness act as the directorate of organized Satanism. When I was manipulated into renting a room in a house which was clearly set up to allow a cell of Satanists (a "Triangle"), along with the landlord (a professional hunter and gunsmith, with his business attached to the rental house), to subject me to various forms of SRA (primarily sleep deprivation, which was very intense), I took some photographs of the place, including one of a picture hung just inside the front door, which seemed to be a declaration of the purpose to which the premises was dedicated. The picture depicts two hunters hiking in the wilderness, apparently tracking deer, and it's entitled Pursuing the Dragon. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to see the title in the photos, but it can be barely made out in the image above which includes a hunter in an orange vest, which was cropped from the overall picture (of which I included a thumbnail because the uncompressed image is over 300 KB). To see the title, it's necessary to zoom way in, set the brightness just right, and look at it just right. Even then, it's barely visible.
So, I used a video camera and a frame-grabber to obtain images of the title, of which the best (unfortunately) is included. The letters are quite clear, although the upstrokes in some cases are faint and the "o" and the "n" at the end of "Dragon" are run together.
Clearly, the title "Pursuing the Dragon" does not apply to the content of the picture, unless someone were so ignorant that they would consider a deer to be evil. (Deer cannot be evil, since they are purely instinct-driven and have no free will. Some animals show signs of having attained a rudimentary form of logic, indicating the evolutionary trend, but not deer as far as I know.) So, I concluded that the title applied to the SRA being conducted against me and anyone else who fell into that trap, and was meant to be understood in the sense of following Satan. However, with my recent recognition of the likely role of the Spirits of Darkness or Dragon as leaders of organized Satanism, this takes on a new light - that it might mean "following the Spirits of Darkness," and indirectly Satan since they work for him.
