Angel 23L and Earth


Dear Angel 23L Subject: Radioactivity

I am very pleased to note that you have successfully passed your examination for Galaxy Inspector. To have passed this course as well as you did, gives me full confidence in your ability to handle the task I have chosen for you. Galaxy Contamination Inspector, Angel 6Y, informs me that in a tiny distant galaxy there is a minute speck that is giving off radioactivity, Please determine the cause for this activity and report on conditions in general on this speck.

Your Lord

From Angel 23L Subject: Speck

To: My Lord

Dear Lord
I am deeply honored in your confidence in me. I shall strive mightily to justify it. I have arrived at the aforementioned galaxy and have located the source of the radioactivity, it does emanate from the tiny planet we call “the speck”, but is known here as “Earth”. There is much here which I find to be of considerable interest.The planet is inhabited by souls that are imprisoned in bodies. (Composed primarily of calcium and water with the many trace elements.) The outward appearance of these bodies seems to be extremely important to the self-esteem of the individual and the success he has in social contact with others. There are four or five different colors of bodies and it is humorous to note, each feels the other is inferior. How this can possibly be so is beyond me, since when the souls leave the body, there is no color. As a last, and immediate observation, groups of bodies have a great deal of trouble understanding one another. The groups each have their own speech pattern and primarily rely on interpreters. These are only a few hurried observations and remarks. I will follow with more information.

From: Your Lord Subject: Earth
To: Angel 23L

Dear Angel 23L

Although your report tends to be somewhat verbose, as a whole, I find it very interesting.
In the future you may refer to the bodies as “Men” and you might bear in mind that I am familiar with their composition.

Your Lord

From: Angel 23L
To: My Lord

Dear Lord:
I will try to restrict my observations to those of a more pertinent matter. I have noted with interest that these men gave a system of measurement that they call “time”. This appears to be necessary in order for them to regulate their lives. Since we have no time or measurement of time, I have adopted theirs an as temporary expediency. It is now earth year 1965.Before I delve further into the cause of radiation, I would like to bring to your attention several other observations. You will recall I mentioned that various color groups felt superior to each other, well now I find that the groups divided by speech also feel superior to one another. Further, colors of one group speaking one language feel superior to the same color speaking another language. Most amazing. O Lord, I am overjoyed to see that many of these men worship you. There are edifices in your honor and on given days men enter therein and sing your praises. Strangely enough, some of these men are in the ones who during the week were most vocal in their manifestation of their hate toward other men. Even in worship, O Lord, these men do not agree. They have literally dozens of ways of worshiping you, in one name or another with each group feeling that you will hear only them and will disregard the others. I would like to report here that they are not in conflict as to whether to worship you or not, but merely in conflict with mechanism of worshipping. They even destroy each other in your name. I am unable to understand all of this and I feel I should be recalled.

From: Your Lord Subject: Earth
To: Angel 23L

Dear Angel 23L
Nonsense. I have complete confidence in your ability. You must bear in mind that you are only reporting what you see. I will interpret the report. Continue your memos.

Your Lord

From: Angel 23L Subject: Earth
To: My Lord

Dear Lord
Thank you. I appreciate your confidence in me. I will do my best I am beginning to realize the cause for radiation. There are 2 principal groups on earth at this time (subject to immediate change). One group proclaims rule of democracy and firm belief in you. The other proclaims rule of communism and no belief in you. A few words about each may be in order. The democracy proudly states rule of people, although the government often is made up of the same wealthy families, which is remarkable for a group of 180,000,000 men. A very important branch of the government is the Supreme Court which is composed of 9 elderly citizens, supposedly wise, but frequently unable to agree with one another. They are so involved with the legalistic interpretation of the law that they usually ignore completely the justice or injustice of their findings. An example of this, O Lord, is this court is forbidding mention of your name in the institutions of learning in spite of the fact that the great majority of the people of this group worship you, and, the very front of the great edifice which houses them extols your laws.The communist party also has an elite inner group, which rules the common man. This group did not buy their way in with wealth, but forced their way in with power. They have forbidden mention of your name, although I find many men secretly at worship. Other similar groups adhere to one or the other of the larger groups. This adherence is dependent upon bribes, ambition of leaders, and proximity to one or the other of the larger twosome. I am weary and will stop now.

From Your Lord Subject: Earth
To: Angel 23L

Dear Angel 23L:
Although I haven’t seen fit to mention this before, I have made these men in my image. Perhaps the experiment was a mistake that should be rectified.

Your Lord

From: Angel 23L Subject: Earth
To: Lord

Dear Lord:
These poor men are continuously engaging in mass destruction of each other. I feel somewhat sorry for the common man who strives not for power, but for life.
In a recent war, one group preformed the elementary splitting of the uranium atom. They used this knowledge to create a bomb to win a war. Now both groups are exploding these devices in the atmosphere, thus causing the radiation. My Lord, I sense that you might take drastic action against the speck. I humbly beseech you to consider that I have been here quite a while and have come to realize the men on this planet need you desperately. Many are hungry, many are homeless. Since they are only human, they are losing their belief. You are aware that you have only given men a brief insight into your great being. It is hard to expect these sad and weary men to reject doctrines and leaders who offer material substitutes for you. Most of these struggling mortals wish only for the right to feed and clothe their loved ones. They are not overly concerned with the great future you offer. They place the welfare of their families above the preached “life-after-death”. They are not endowed by your great wisdom. Please, my Lord, help these men. They need you.

Angel 23L

From Your Lord Subject: Earth
To: Angel 23L

Dear Angel 23L:
I read with great interest your recent memo. Yes, I have a certain feeling of responsibility for those poor creatures made in my image. As you know, I haven’t had too much time to devote to my experiment on earth. I will make available an opportunity for these men to help themselves. I will disclose to them the secret of the “H” Atom. With this new power, they may create a world free of hunger, pain and sorrow, or they can, by utilizing it to make war, destroy themselves forever. I will leave the choice to them. “H” may stand for Heaven or Hell, whatever they desire.

Your Lord

PS. If I should tend to overlook it, please inform me of the results.
