The demons who take so long to get to the No stage may well stand for non-distinctness. Once they reach the stage, they can become all kinds of human bodies and human roles - but when they are supposed to be »just demons« they reject such forms: then their hair is wild and exuberant and while the rhythm of their movements is hard to get into, their eyes are neither closed nor open, and their tongues are sticking out. Is this the quieting face of Being?
