Then, I had a frightening thought. The idea came to me after watching an old episode of my favorite sci-fi TV program, Star Trek Voyager. In the episode, the ship is taken over by aliens who are much more scientifically advanced and the crew is subjected to experiments that they are not aware of, as the aliens can operate invisibly around the humans as they go about their daily activities. What if we're in a similar situation?
What if the angels are more alien than we think? What if they are merely a different life form that is using us, experimenting on us, or doing whatever they want to suit their agenda? Who is to say that they are totally benign? If they have their own agendas, they would want us to think that they are God's messengers. We have had similar situations in our past history. Some historians say the Aztecs thought that Cortez and his conquistadors were Gods, which led to the destruction of their empire. Is this what is really going on?
These were unsettling thoughts. I couldn't wait to address them directly to the seraphim.
SOLONIA: We've watched you. You, personally, over the years and although you are not a violent person, we have seen streaks of violence in you, when you get angry and resentful. In your younger days, we have seen you get into fights, a normal behavior for kids in your society. You have not done so for many, many years, and we don't think you will resort to that again, but you still enjoy watching violent war and action films. We can feel your enjoyment when you watch a martial arts fight or a violent sporting event. And yet we know that you are at heart, a peaceful man. It is a paradox that we are trying to understand.
Me: Yeah, I don't understand it myself, except I know that a lot of it is biological. You know, it's what we needed to do to survive.
NARVON: Yes, but tell us, not what you think about it, but how do you feel inside? What do you enjoy about watching violent activity toward your fellow humans?
I had to sit back and reflect on it. Why do I enjoy those things? What is so enjoyable about watching someone get punched around in the ring until he's half dead? War movies where soldiers get machine gunned and blown up? Why do I get off on that? And why is that normal? Really. Everyone is into it, even women. Fighting and killing are almost synonymous with manhood, and women love men who kick ass. Do we live in a sick world? Or is it just our biological survival mechanisms that we indulge in? Can't we get over those savage tendencies as a race, the human race?
Me: Love? Is it possible for Corto to know love? Is there a love chip that you can embed in a robot? And would that turn a material, mechanical being into a real person?***
NARVON: Humans can be co-creators. You create art. Whenever you do that, you are putting love into a material object.
SOLONIA: You are imbuing a thing with a value. You are permeating a material object with inspiration.
NARVON: So, in the same way, if a mechanical being such as Corto was injected with love, it would become a work of art.
That sent chills down my spine. I saw myself as what I really am, a material being imbued with love by the Source.
Me: Oh, my God! That's us! Humans are God's artwork!
NARVON: Yes! But you are more than that.
SOLONIA: The self-awareness function together with love from the Source enables you to actually evolve into another type of being, one that is no longer material.
NARVON: Once you connect to the Source on a regular basis, you can begin to co-create your true self, and this true self is not just the artwork of the universe's intelligence, but a loving child of God. You become part of the universe family.
