My friend says: “I don’t understand that: another one fell today in the dorm, dead. Why anyone will be doing that thing to himself?”
So another flukka victim was rolled away on a stretcher. There will be no medical help, it was too late anyway and so in a few hours he will make a transfer to an undertaker's gurney and will be taken away. What is it, really, why young men, men who non-metaphorically speaking have nearly all their life ahead of them, prefer to smoke this stuff, which kills them here and there like flies? And they know what they are doing! That’s the hardest part to understand.

Eschatology is like a chronic infectious disease - once you’ve got into it, it never goes away. I just finished #20 THE TURN AND THE CROSS, and I thought that this would be quite enough, but then my sight had caught these lines:
“And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.” Rev. 9:11.

  • All he wanted was a fish Sandwich.

What a sad epitaph! Sounds almost like a joke, but do we really have to kid ourselves? While we are getting accustomed to the adage that the last human being will pass away not with a bang but with a whimper, a Fucushima power plant keeps stuffing the ocean with curies. Soon our tuna will be glowing in the dark like Locusta St. Iohannis in flight. If that would be our only problem, it would be bad enough, but there are about a dozen more bigger woes at hand and only God knows how many more are creeping in the dark, yet unknown. Some of those demons are marching over us and don’t even care to hide their horns.

 

WINGS

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. once wrote "We have to continually bejumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down” [1] Maybe so, or maybe we will develop springy limbs and rubber heads instead. But, no matter where the evolution would have taken us, time after time each of us desperately needs wings. The good news is that in the next phase of our being, one which comes upon that so much dreaded “death”, our longing for flight will be duly fulfilled. I (still in this life) have never gone too far in that shadowy realm, but even from my limited experience it was a free flight!

Imho, one of the most relevant to our current affairs books of the Scriptures is the Second Book of Ezdras (a.k.a. Ezra). Ezra was a scribe and a leader of Jewish reconstruction of Jerusalem. While the reconstruction began by decree of Cyrus, King of Persia, even 80 years later, about 458 BC when Ezra moved to Jerusalem, city was not rebuilt yet. Out of all that Ezra had written, we know three books of his name, The Book of Nehemiah and Chronicles. In Book II Ezra had transcribed his dialogues with archangel Uriel which makes it the most connected book to Revelation of St. John and to Book of Daniel. Again, that's my opinion, and I, by no means am a theologian.

I was reading English translation of Michael PsellusDialogue on Operation of Demons [1]. In the past I have explored the subject pretty much on my own (see Indian Gift, Visitations and especially Down the Sea Sallow), and now I’ve turned to experts. So I am reading Psellus, Byzantine scholar of XI century, and then in a footnote I am running into: “autopsy, i.e. intuition”. And I go: “What? Autopsy means intuition?”

The rhythmic pounding off in the distance sharpened and intensified as well– became a work beat for some army of troll-like underground laborers, performing some endless, brutally monotonous task, wrote Dr. Eben Alexander in  Proof of Heaven, a book about his near death experience. [1] I can't tell that for sure, but I think this was a music from Hell, and I’ve heard it too.
