Truth may be stranger than fiction, but fiction often echoes truth.
In Mary Shelley's classic Gothic tale of Frankenstein by the poet's young wife there is a strange relevance to a well-known biblical story, which may be an echo of an even stranger truth if you consider the biblial statement of the first creation: And God said let us make man in our image.
Genesis: 1 : 26, 27)
Genesis: 2 : 7 & 5 : 2 Is the story of a second creation, Adam and Eve, one formed from the dust (elements) of earth through genetic breeding that blended an unevolved species of man with a higher evolutionary species?
The plot sharpens quickly when you consider the character Dr. Polidari's statement to Dr. Frankenstein:
So long as your creation was beautiful and innocent, you
loved him. When he became ugly, you cast him aside.
Mary Shelley's story ends with the creature wandering lost and alone in the frozen arctic wasteland while his creator, Dr. Frankenstein, stumbles after him, pleading for forgiveness.
Now back to Adam-Eve. Innocent and obedient, the "gods" accepted and cared for their adamic creation, but when this hybrid began to show signs of independent thought and action, the gods' did not like this: "They might become as one of us!"
So they cast their creation out of their protective care (Eden). Withdrew their support and guidance, leaving their hybrid creation to shift for itself, which it was ill equipped to do since it had been little more than a pet --coddled, directed, and controlled.
Left to himself/herself ADAM/EVE reverted to the strong pull of the primitive ways inherited through the physical form and, as in the Frankenstein story, the "process" began to reverse itself. Unable to cope with existence in a harsh lower vibration, the higher nature was soon dominated by its "dust" nature that was better acclimated to the lower dimension's level of existence.
This insight in a story written by a girl in her teens was not as discernable in the Hollywood version, which concentrated on shock and horror. But a later television version titled The True Story lifted a veil and created pity for this creation who, through no fault of its own, began to lose the beauty and innocence of its original creation.
The television story further relates that it was "shock" which caused the reversal. The lower vibration of the denser physical form was unable to maintain the implanted higher vibration and could not integrate with it completely. (You cannot put 220 volts though a 110 socket!)
Not hard to understand if you consider that a similar condition happens when the physical body rejects a transplanted organ taken from another, even though the organ may be necessary to continue life. This built-in protection against disease, the ability to create antibodies to destroy an "invader," functions automatically without regard for our total well-being. It blindly does its job without the ability to reason.
Thus when the Sons of Light "mated" with the lower evolving species of earth (daughters of man), the integration did not "take" completely. The higher vibration's nature eventually succumbed to the strong instincts of the egoic form and the higher nature came under the control of the lower.
Is it the eternal quest of this hybrid creation to once again attain the implanted elevation of mind and spirit that it once experienced? To reach a memory that still echoes in the soul of mankind? The form/ego it occupies delays it, but the light within, although dim, pressures it. A creature of duality, at odds with itself, it gazes at the stars and a stirring within answers a call it cannot remember or explain. It responds without knowing why.
Guided by his sires, who had to accept the bitter lesson that under Universal Law interference with a species' evolution requires guardianship until their creation achieves its latent potential, this long struggle imprisoned both the Sons of Light and mankind. For the guardian suffers the same prison term as his prisoner.
Is hu-man finally ready for a giant step in spiritual evolution? Ready to be instructed in its true heritage and eventual goal? Ready to forgive its creators and understand the long, painful guardianship that has been exercised over it? To realize the sacrifices that have been made?
To welcome the Light Bringers who have suffered and died at mankind's hands many times so that more light might penetate his mind and divine law be established in his world?
What if Lucifer, whose very name means Light Bringer, represents the gods who were the initiators of hu-man's begetting? Enlighteners who tried to speed up the painfully slow evolution of an earlier, primitive expression of man?
Consider that Satan and Lucifer are not the same. What if the individual ego that developed in hu-man is actually his Satan --- the lower nature that is unwilling to give up its control? While the "Light Bringer" is actually a higher evolutionary spirit that has put on the painful garment of flesh many times as a martyr to man's redemption from the catastrophic error of gods who interfered with a planet's evolutionary plan. There is a great lesson here, one mankind must remember.
Interfere with the Creator's Plan at your own risk!
