ANGELS 

The angels are a strange genus: they are precisely what they are and cannot be anything else.  They are in themselves soulless beings who represent nothing but the thoughts and intuitions of their Lord.  Angels who fall, then, are exclusively “bad” angels.  These release the well-known effect of “inflation,” which we can also observe nowadays in the megalomania of dictators: the angels beget with men a race of giants which ends by threatening to devour mankind, as is told in the book of Enoch.  MDR 328

Thus the keynote was struck for the second half of the Christian aeon, after the myth of the fall of the angels had already explained that these fallen angels had taught men a dangerous knowledge of science and arts.  What would these old storytellers have to say about Hiroshima?   MDR 333
