'' What sort of spirits could be diagnosed from this, and how? I ask because of my personal issues with schizophrenia.''
I don't know what type of issues. May be you are interested in schizophrenia from an academic point if view. That is why this discussion is problematic. If you see devas then o.k I'm not debating that. But that you don't do as much Samantha as the forest monks do then there is a question in my mind as to whether the cause of your visions are related to meditation. It makes me feel bad to say this. I'm sorry.

That is actually what I've been planning to do. There are no gurus of course, but there is always Buddha. The idea of closing or opening the eyes, I have always found to be confusing. They just seem to be a part of our mind normally, and yet we aren't normally aware of them. So, having an open eye is really just being aware in that sense. Those who have achieved it through meditation and effort, they can close and open it at will. It's different when your awareness is partly just a remainder awareness. What's the word...?

Eventually a feud erupted between the two classes of gods and their worshipers which finally having resulted in the banishment of all Deva-worshipers towards the East (India). These Indo-Aryans later influenced the mythology of the newly forming religion of Buddhism.
Ahuras (Asuras) were normally the more virtuous ones who abstained from eating meat and taking intoxicants, where as Devas were passionate gods who indulged in all sensual pleasures. Ahuras never demanded animal to be sacrificed to them, where as Devas demanded sacrifice of animals.
English word "Devil" also is etymologically related with the same word "Dev" from which Indian "Devas" came up. So Devas were in fact the more evil ones.
