>>61135538>I'd argue that it's important to make it clear that these beings are not divine in anyway, and are in fact just the combined offscourings of real living beings' failings.
Oh absolutely. Simplifying that they are just gods and demons would only get marginally better results than fully ignoring them.>>61135546
Sure, I'm just saying that they are harder to get rid of then normal xenos, and defending against them would have required a more formal teaching. Also getting accustomed to the depressing thought of "well we'll have to get used to them, we can never fully genocide them" would have helped out a lot of primarchs.
Heck, even telling specifically that "hey, there are four especially big parasites out there to keep an eye out for" instead of letting said parasites introduce themselves, would have been better.
I suppose what I am trying to say is that the "Dangerous Knowledge which's nature has to be kept hidden" narrative that stems from misunderstanding makes a lot more sense than the "Well, I shared as much as I could, better not divulge it further" one imo.
