They were led to the spirit of the "Black Sun" -- Cain, the murderer from the Bible. Then they began to communicate with Baphomet [revered by some as a "God of Wisdom," like the Goddess Sophia], a demon with a goat face who is part male/female, part human/animal. Baphomet is sometimes thought of as the devil and associated with alchemy and the "God of Communication" Hermes, Twyman explains. She was recently informed by Baphomet that the "gates of hell" (of the pit) had been opened in July.

Cain is reporting this to Twyman via the board. She is haunted, that is to say she has negative spirits attached to her which facilitate her communication with various boards, as a result. She notes that Ouija board contacts with dead people or ghosts [pretas] are more dangerous than interactions with demons [asuras] because the deceased tend to have a more negative influence. An Appalachian Christian minister called in sensing her spiritual predicament intent on praying with her to cleanse her of that unclean influence, but nominal Christian co-host George Noory would not stand for it and hung up on the caller. That's why he makes the big bucks on the Clear Channel corporate conglomerate network, which former co-host John B. Wells exposes on Caravan to Midnight. More

They are demonstrative of religious syncretism in his beliefs.
To discover Kushan chess pieces will cause a great problem. The National Museum in Kabul was formerly one of the most important museums in the world; more than 90% of its exhibits were excavated in Afghanistan and formed a complete historical record of this great cultural crossroads along the Silk Route.
A list of artifacts among the stolen or imperiled treasures of the National Museum contains a collection of 1,772 artifacts excavated between 1937 and 1946 from Begram (ancient Kapisa, the summer capital of the Kushan Empire), in Parwan province on the fabled Silk Route that linked India and China with Rome.
However, the Archaeological Museum Termez in Uzbekistan, 60 km away from Dalverzintepa, is proud to show these two pieces of the Kushan era, which are very similar to the known chess artifacts of Afrasiab:.. More
