Was unaware that there was an original person named Faust. Thanks for the info.
In my twenties, was a Tarot reader and an Astrologer, who also dabbled in Magick. On more than one occasion offered to buy someone’s soul. No one ever took me up on it, and am not sure what would have done if they had said yes. It just always interested me, that people who declared there was no God, where not yet ready to test that thesis in fact.
As for Lucifer, and other such named, as Crowley taught, a Devil by nature is always involved in a duality, only a God is a unity. Or to put it another way, why go for second best, even though a friend of the Devil can be a friend of mine.
