We get very busy projecting, and this projection takes on a life of its own. Whenever you become invested in a view, a perception, or a belief, you see what you believe you see. Each demon arises from a perceived meaning. Basically a meaningful threat. They feel most comfortable when their life is recognizable, and our pet inner demons make our life recognizable.
