They were under the impression there were clues about the so called Pranic Lift, the spiritual technique used by ascetics to achieve cosmic consciousness a level of consciousness that is characteristic of the Encantus from Baringan City, who are consideed Devas.

Devas are “shining ones,” in the evolutionary hierarchy they are semi-divine or celestial being with great powers, and therefore “gods.” Sometimes they are called demi-gods. Most devas are the demigods presiding over various powers of material and psychic nature.

Yakshas are of two kinds: semidivine beings whose king is Kubera, the lord of wealth, or a kind of ghost, goblin, or demon. The rajasic worship the first kind to gain material advantage, and worship the second kind Ba jiao gui to get them to harm those standing in their way of material gain.

Rakshas are also of two kinds: semidivine, benevolent beings, or cannibal demons or goblins, enemies of the gods. The rajasic worship them for the same reasons as they worship the yakshas.
Pretas are ghosts–spirits of the dead. Sometimes these are just wandering earthbound “tramp” souls, but they may be famous people or one’s own ancestors.

Bhutas are of two types: some are subhuman nature spirits or “elementals”, but some are earthbound human spirits–ghosts. Bhutas may be either positive or negative.
Ganas are usually part of groups of spirits that wander
together–usually of various types. The term is also used as a kind of “miscellaneous” category for entities that have not otherwise been identified. A gana may be benevolent or malevolent, but is usually disorderly, chaotic, and wild in the sense of untamed or unruly, and potentially dangerous (hazardous). A gana’s appearance is usually deformed, repulsive, or frightening.
