2021.12.03 04:40 CamperJoe15 Thoughts on Paimon and the naming of Archons (Spoilers)
I'm sure that this has been talked about before, but I just thought it was interesting. In "The Lesser Key of Solomon" (LKS, contains Ars Goetia) there is a list of demons that have some incredibly familiar names and character traits.
First Duke Barbatos (Venti): Barbatos is the 8th spirit in LKS. He is frequently depicted as an archer or philosopher with several brass horns. In Ars Goetia, "He giveth understanding of the singing of birds, and the Voices of other creatures." In Dictionnaire Infernal, "He reconciles quarreled friends" (an obvious nod to Dvalin).
Next, Count Morax (Zhongli): Name derived from Latin 'Morax' which can mean 'that stops' or 'that delays.' From Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, "...he maketh men wonderfully cunning in astronomy, & in all the liberal sciences." Zhongli is frequently mentioned to have much knowledge over just about everything. From Ars Goetia, he is mentioned as, "...knowing the virtues of Herbs and Stones which be precious." A major part of his questline is gathering flowers, perfumes, and precious stones to prepare for the parting ceremony.
Next, King Bael (also spelled Baal, Raiden): I haven't played through this part of Genshin yet, so you'll have to tell me if this sounds right. Being a popular demon in literature, many different depictions have been given of Baal. Its name is derived from "Ba'al," which translates to English as "Lord." From Dictionnaire Infernal, "...Bael, demon cited in le Grand Grimoire, as the head of all infernal powers." Again, while I haven't played through the story, I know it has something to do with the collection of visions. Here is where I am lost: from Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, "He speaketh with a hoarse voice, he maketh a man go invisible." I have no idea what this is referring to. Is anything like this referred to in-game?
This consistency had me look into Paimon. All 72 demons in The Lesser Key of Solomon are under the command of the four kinds of the cardinal directions. There are various translations here, so I will stick by the one offered by Joseph Peterson. There is Amodeo, king of the east. Egion, king of the north. Maimon, king of the south. And finally, Paimon, king of the west.
King Paimon is described by Goetia, as well as most other books on demonology, as a teacher of science and an answerer of questions. They have knowledge of 'secret things.' They answer truthfully to all questions asked of them and know all the affairs of the world. Abramenlin's Paimon fits most with the character in Genshin. They have knowledge of past and future events, the power to clear up doubts, make spirits appear, can create visions, and the power to fly. It is also frequently mentioned that Paimon is more obedient to Lucifer than any of the other kings and that they have the power to control and influence the minds of others.
Two primary thoughts here. First, King Paimon's primary defining feature is the ability to administer guidance. They are a teacher who is aware of all things, who thrives in revealing mysteries. This would be the ideal candidate for a guide-companion in the meta-game sense. Lore wise, I'm curious about the loyalty to Lucifer. Supposing that Lucifer is the all-powerful entity that confronts us in the beginning, what is Paimon's relation to them? Is Paimon a plant meant to cause harm? Or maybe Lucifer (the god at the beginning) is well-natured and has some greater cause in mind, and they want us to succeed. So, they sent their most loyal and knowing guide to help us find victory.
I would love to hear any of your thoughts. Also, mods, if this kind of post is not allowed, please point me in the right direction. I think this is too interesting not to share!

2021.12.03 04:40 Acerino US Immigration Help or Suggestions
Hello everyone. I am in need of advice and/or recommendations. My case below and I'll keep it short.
I am a US citizen. My wife is Colombian and her son as well and we got married before he was 18. We had a daughter back in May and I already got her US citizenship. We are currently living in Mexico (both are legal residents of Mexico) but I work in the US so I cross over almost every day to work. I want to get her under my health insurance ASAP because she has some health issues that I want to get taken care of. Is there a way to expedite this? We tried getting a tourist visa back in late 2019 which was denied because the officer did not believe she has enough proof that she would go back to Mexico once she crossed over, although I plan on living in Mexico while I save up money. What can I do? Is getting her a green card the fastest way? I talked to an immigration lawyer and they quoted me $8,000 to help me with the process for both of them. Is this a fair price?
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Excuse any grammar or typos please, I am in my cellphone.

2021.12.03 04:40 lost3oul Advice on friendships/rejectiom/ghosting
I have this friend who I've known for a good while now. We started off as friends and over the years, I came to like him alot. recently, I told him that i liked him and he rejected me. He rejected me in a strange way- at first only repeating the words "right person, wrong time" and then offering to pity date me- That's literally all that happened.
Obviously I was hurt, but I couldn't blame him for not liking me back. This was the first time I've ever told anyone that I liked them, so I felt uncomfortable and hurt. I started avoiding him in the halls and vaguely responded to his text. I later got a text from one of his friends that said he felt sad that I was avoiding him, so I tried to open up a bit more contact to make him feel better, but still not as much as there was before. I was still very uncomfortable being around him. the thought of talking to him after everything happened made me cringe badly and just not want to be anywhere near him.
Around a month of this ghosting/avoidence, I later got another text from his friend stating that he was on the verge of tears when they were on a call together, talking about how I don't pay attention to him anymore and how he misses the friendship we had. It had been a month since everything happened and my life changed drastically(becoming more focused on school and other friends). Out of love for this person (as a friend now), I texted them explaining that I was uncomfortable talking to them after everything happened and also needed time to move on. I explained that I value our friendship but can't give him as much attention as I used to give him before, since I was treating him as if I was in a relationship with him and giving him all of my attention 24/7, and now my attention is on other things. I told him how even though it has been a month, I'm still uncomfortable talking to him and don't know if I could or even want to go back to the friendship we had before (because it was toxic for me because I gave him all of my attention). I also reassured them that none of this was his fault, but I needed to do this for myself.
They responded back by saying that I was throwing away the friendship and how I was in the wrong because I hurt their feelings by ghosting them without saying anything and instead, telling his friend about why I stopped talking to him(I consider his friend and I to be friends, so I told him why I wasn't talking to the kid that rejected me and used the words "I think I have a right to not want to talk to him after everything that happened"). He did explain though how he understands that I needed time, but still hurt his feelings because I didn't tell him the reasons why I stopped talking to him.
I don't know if I'm in the wrong in this situation, as I think that what I did was right and what I needed to do for myself in the moment. When he told me that he felt hurt, I felt irritated because I believed that I should be the one who should've been crying during all of this time and the one who was suffering, but thinking this made me feel selfish aswell, believing that I was selfishly only thinking about myself and my own feelings. All of these feelings are confusing me on whether I did something wrong. I am completely okay with being in the wrong and apologizing but I really don't think what I did was wrong- I think it was a valid reaction for how everything played out but once again, I'm not sure. I'm hoping I can get some help and advice on how to move on from here and whether I was in the wrong.
Thanks for reading :)

Auto-Liquidity Generation: 7% of all Shiba Max transactions will be contributed to building Liquidity ensuring the growth, stability, and sustainability of the token. This feature ensures that the price of the token is backed by a constantly growing liquidity pool. Multiple secure liquidity pools will be added as we grow, and our token is listed on centralized exchanges such as Bilaxy and Hotbit. The rate of contributions will only increase as our community grows and trading volume increases providing stability and security to our investors.
Decentralization: Contract Ownership was renounced at launch as a result of this action no individual or entity has ownership of the contract, making Shiba Max secure and fair for our community and truly decentralized. 100% of Liquidity was locked on launch (Please refer to our FAQ section for link) to ensure security and peace of mind for our investors.Shiba Max was tested extensively using the testnet prior to launch to ensure absolute security and accuracy of function, it was designed to be scalable, self-sustaining, and to scale seamlessly and frictionlessly on a fully autonomous and rapidly growing DeFi ecosystem.
Shiba Maximum Rewards: All holders will have their Shiba Max balance grow through RFI Rewards at intervals as the Shiba Max Army grows. This function will allow the Army to effectively earn interest rewards which will increase as our community grows. Our mission is to ensure that the Shiba Max Army is rewarded as our domination of the Crypto Market continues on.
The Shiba Max NFT Marketplace and its offerings is brimming on the horizon. We will be working garner a roster of the best Digital artists, Influencers, Celebrities, and Athletes to have an all-star lineup of NFT releases at launch. The Dynamic NFT releases would also be paired with Physical Merchandise to add further value to our Marketplace offerings. Airdrops will also be going out to our top shillers and holders.

2021.12.03 04:40 Imaginary-Top9382 The storyline and personal summery about Enkanomiya from the new book The Serpent-Drake of Tokoyo no Kuni
This article has two parts, tho the storyline is actually quite clear.
First part: Enkanomiya sank into the ocean. In the very first part of the book, we can see this.
The universe has no beginning and no end, and so it was with the land that once was. But this matters not to us, for the land that bears us no longer has anything to do with that eternity without start or ceasing.So Enkanomiya was once being a part of what it called "eternity". However, for some reason, the relationship between "eternity" and Enkanomiya has been cut off, willingly or unwillingly. Similar things can be found in the description of Violet Court.
Sometime in the ancient past, the mountains rose higher than the skies, and the earth was larger than heaven's dome. But one day, the mirror shattered, and the oceans arose. In these legends, this caused the court of the primeval sakura to become sundered from the other islands."The universe has no beginning and no end, and so it was with the land that once was." This part fits quite well with "Sometime in the ancient past, the mountains rose higher than the skies, and the earth was larger than heaven's dome." A Chinese lore expert makes a point(google translate needed) that they're describing the same thing.
However, there is another version of the legend of Watatsumi Omikami's slaying:
While the people of the deep yet dwelt in the depths, they kept very reliable chronicles, for there was no day or night for them. If they kept no precise records, they would even forget what time it was. But these chronicles were ordered sealed in Enkanomiya by the Great Serpent, never to be retrieved.
At that time, Enkanomiya had only just been brought some room to breathe by the appearance of the sun. The Dragonheir loved the dark and shunned the light, and thus could no longer act with impunity. The days when the Dragonheir would rampage and graze on humanity like so much grass had, at last, come to an end, for the people of Enkanomiya finally had the means to resist.The ruling of Dragonheir is brutal. Well, as brutal as Decarabian, it seems. So the people of Enkanomiya cannot stand it any longer and decided to revolt. How are they gonna beat this monster? The guy called Abe Yoshihisa invented a tool called "the sun" so the people of Enkanomiya could take this as a chance to suppress Dragonheir like what Zhongli did to Azhdaha. It seems Dragonheir is still alive and always ready for a fightback, according to this quest).
Legend has it that Abe Yoshihisa was opened up to wisdom by the great god of Tokoyo, and was thus able to bring light to Enkanomiya, which had till then never seen the sun.Then, the people of Enkanomiya decided to elect a new king, and they called that king "Sunchild". Unexpectedly, this Sunchild did the same shit toward its own people.
Yet it came to pass that the flaws in human nature would rear their ugly heads even before such outside threats could be quelled. The people chose Sunchild, crowned him king, and worshipped him, and yet he ruled with a brutal hand, framing the righteous.This newly crowned Sonchild even jailed their revolutionary leader Abe Yoshihisa.
But the Sunchild grew jealous of his talents, thus imprisoning him for life. Yet these children of the sun never considered that had Yoshihisa not created that underground star, they never would have existed in the first place.It's worth noticing that Abe Yoshihisa is trying to implying us that Dragonheir and Orobashi are kin such as cousins or relationships like that.
"The origin of heaven and earth is like the chicken and egg, and are not dragons and snakes kin?" No sooner had the sage Abe Yoshihisa uttered these words than he was overthrown by troops lying in ambush.
"I am the Profane Serpent. Though my servants are numberless, not one mortal now dwells in my shadow. That I have fallen into this realm, and that we would meet... Perhaps this is fate. You are not one of my people, but you are human nonetheless. Speak your desire, and I shall hear it."submitted by Imaginary-Top9382 to Genshin_Lore [link] [comments]
"Could you then, perchance, become our god?"
Thus did they, human and serpent, go forth to face the royal authority of Sunchild and the incursions of the Dragonheir beyond - thus was the curtain raised on the turning of the tide.
