I am thinking about the chain of being.
Animals are conscious of their world through senses, but are not self aware (not aware of their own consciousness).
Humans are able to be conscious of our own consciousness, making us self aware. Humans have direct access to their own mind, or can observe their own thoughts, but can only infer what is going on in another person's mind.
Demons and angels are self aware, conscious of their own mind AND are able to have direct access to the consciousness of other beings. See CS Lewis' Screwtape Letters.
God has direct access to the conscious of all minds in all universes (and perhaps all alternative multi-verses). Prayer is permitting God's mind to enter ours and transform it, raising it to a higher level -- sort of like we do with pets when we humanize them. By interacting with dogs or cats, we raise them a little bit to our level of awareness. Talking to God gives us his perspective.
The Scripture says they are the fallen angels that satan took with him when he was kicked out of heaven.
I suspect that is it. Our immortal soul may also be a component of our physical existence which resides in another dimension. Similarly, I also suspect this existence in dimensions other than our own points to a physical explanation of the trinity.
Very interesting post.

Totally agree. That’s why it is important to maintain positive (good thoughts) & not give ‘evil’ a window to easily access our consciousness.
