And they say his mother said to some of her intimates once that not of Sabbatius her husband, nor of any man was Justinian a son. For when she was about to conceive, there visited a demon, invisible but giving evidence of his presence perceptibly where man consorts with woman, after which he vanished utterly as in a dream.And some of those who have been with Justinian at the palace late at night, men who were pure of spirit, have thought they saw a strange demoniac form taking his place. One man said that the Emperor suddenly rose from his throne and walked about, and indeed he was never wont to remain sitting for long, and immediately Justinian's head vanished, while the rest of his body seemed to ebb and flow; whereat the beholder stood aghast and fearful, wondering if his eyes were deceiving him. But presently he perceived the vanished head filling out and joining the body again as strangely as it had left it.Another said he stood beside the Emperor as he sat, and of a sudden the face changed into a shapeless mass of flesh, with neither eyebrows nor eyes in their proper places, nor any other distinguishing feature; and after a time the natural appearance of his countenance returned. I write these instances not as one who saw them myself, but heard them from men who were positive they had seen these strange occurrences at the time.They also say that a certain monk, very dear to God, at the instance of those who dwelt with him in the desert went to Constantinople to beg for mercy to his neighbors who had been outraged beyond endurance. And when he arrived there, he forthwith secured an audience with the Emperor; but just as he was about to enter his apartment, he stopped short as his feet were on the threshold, and suddenly stepped backward. Whereupon the eunuch escorting him, and others who were present, importuned him to go ahead. But he answered not a word; and like a man who has had a stroke staggered back to his lodging. And when some followed to ask why he acted thus, they say he distinctly declared he saw the King of the Devils sitting on the throne in the palace, and he did not care to meet or ask any favor of him.Indeed, how was this man likely to be anything but an evil spirit, who never knew honest satiety of drink or food or sleep, but only tasting at random from the meals that were set before him, roamed the palace at unseemly hours of the night, and was possessed by the quenchless lust of a demon?

Five for Friday #39
by Lynn & Da-da
Hi all, and welcome to this latest (rather surprising) installment. Let’s get started...
Image #1: 323 Dead Reindeer in Norway
These reindeer were allegedly killed by lightning, but — like those antelope in Africa — were they actually killed by something else??
What Lynn Saw
"I feel like there was some kind of pulse that felt like an energy wave that threw them into cardiac arrest instantly. You could almost hear it: a WHOOMP... but it was controlled remotely, done through some kind of satellite system. I want to say it was a foreign power testing a defense weapon, to be able to fine tune and direct energy at a specific targeted area, through some kind of satellite.”
Image #2: That Blinding Flash of...
This is some kind of energy appearing in the middle of a farm in Russia where there’s not much to cause this. What goes on here?
What Lynn Saw
"Oh. This is a fake."
Image #3: An Island of the Floating World
Here’s a weird floating island-esque patch of vegetation, which is oddly circular, with a diameter of approx. 130 yards. A helicopter pilot in S. Argentina discovered it surrounded by a thin channel of cold water. What goes on here?
What Lynn Saw
"I see that, going way back, this area would flood a lot. What the natives did, about a thousand years ago, was dig out this little island to plant their crops to have them survive the flooding [!]. They did such a good job that it’s still there today."
[Amazing. How thick is that? How does it float? And are there any original living plant remnants left?]
"I get it isn't terribly thick. 15-ish feet? I also get there is a lot of (I hear Epsom salt which usually means magnesium to me, but could mean salt) in the soil which helps it to float. Yes, there are remnants there."
Image #4: The Demon Emperor?
This is Justinian, 6th Century AD Roman Emperor. There are some strange accounts of him not being human. What do you see? And where is his spirit today, can you tell? The accounts of him are kinda spooky.
What Lynn Saw
"I get that he was human, but that he did a lot of dabbling in dark magic. He opened himself up to a lot of dark spirits. He was into lower vibrational stuff.
I get he’s still in spirit. He’s not incarnated. I get he’s so remorseful for the harm he may have caused, that he’s decided he’s not ready to reincarnate because of the shame he feels. He’s seen the error of his ways and is not proud of that."
[If he was possessed, could people see these kind of manifestations? or was Procopius just anti-Justinian?]
"Wow. That is a creepy story... I did get he was into some dark stuff, and I saw voodoo dolls (symbolic or literal - sometimes I can't tell the difference). I feel if anything, he was into and worshipped the dark side, opened himself up, and had some low vibrational things attach to him (that he welcomed). What was witnessed was a result of that. That place of his could have used a good smudging!!"
Image #5: The NY Spikeys?
These are apparently underwater obelisks or pyramids in the Atlantic, 200 km off the coast of NY, that allegedly align with the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Are they real, fake, or just a computer glitch? If real, who built them and why? Looks like that huge undersea antenna near Antarctica we wrote about in an earlier 5.
What Lynn Saw
"I hear that in the ocean there are lots of "underwater boosters,” but this is not one. It’s fake."
[Note: many asked to see the fakes, so I’m leaving them in. However, since we’re getting so many…]
BONUS: Newest UK Cropcircle
Here’s the latest cropcircle to come out of the UK. Looks too elaborate to be human-made. What are the crop-tographers trying to tell us here?
What Lynn Saw
"This is beautiful. Not sure where the site got their messages from, but I see this representing some kind exotic fruit (keep wanting to look at the center of the leaves where they meet), and get there is some healing or almost magical property to this "fruit" or at least the seeds..??"
[I sent Lynn about eight pics of different tropical fruits.]
"I wanted to say PAW PAW (guava is the only thing like that with the short "a" sound)???"
"Yes, I see Paw Paw as anti cancer and a super detox. There is some magical feel to them.
I do see Paw Paw being the biggest message. In some weird way, these ETs know the rate of disease, cancer and illness in parts of the world (they feel the vibrations). There is ancient knowledge of healing that is slowly being lost, and they want to help us (FDAs may suppress drugs, and holistic doctors may be "accidentally drowned in their own tub," but you can't really hurt a species of ETs that haven't even been disclosed.) The symbols don't feel like a language, but rather a listing of star systems in symbol form. The 33 feels significant, but I can't get anything clear on that."
And that’s it. Join us in a fortnight for episode #40!
