The Buck glowed with strange fires, and it followed with unerring sense the track of the doe. But in his wake rose up puffs of points of light with colors that struck the ravens with foreboding. It was not part of their calculation.
“What are they?” Null shrilled.
Knull said,” I am stumped. I guess these are spun off from all that energy the tree acquired in defining Space and Time. Nothing more we can do but watch how these develop?”
Null went blank and snapped out of its spell screaming “The Ghost Runners!”
Later he asked,” What put that thought into my mind?”
“It of course! But what worries me more than anything else, “Who is dead here anyway?”
Knull had reason to feel puzzled. ‘How can there be ghosts without death as a reality?’
Or were they angels, flames of fire spun out of Will (or Thought?)
The ghost runners were as incidental as humans transfer parasites evolved alongside through many cycles of their birth.
End of Prologue

When God breathed into the nostrils of man something happened to him. He became a living soul. His will came into an active mode. Thoughts, action and emotions that engaged him was not something that was mechanical; but instead it could take flights of fancy. Love for instance. Looking at other creatures (that came into being as a result of an expression of divine Will) man saw they were fine in their own right but nothing was a substitute for woman. Being a living soul his love had to be narrowed down to something that spoke to his soul. It was man’s exercise of his will.
Whereas the Will of God was of another kind. His love made every creature submit to his Will, man and beasts of the field alike. Lamb of God is an imagery that God the Son has used to instruct the man. Holy Spirit in making the lamb a symbol teaches universality of divine love and a particular characteristic man associated with lamb: innocence.
Will of man has his limits but that of God all encompassing.

Angel Abdiel conducted the seraph to the Gates of Paradise and knocked. Gabriel who manned the Gates wanted to know why the seraph from Pandemonium was there. Abdiel said,’ He is from Pandemonium but he has had a change of heart.’
Abdiel was sure that a look at God, the father would convince him the error of his ways. Gabriel let him in.
Abdiel flew in followed close at heels by the seraph. They went round and round and in the end the seraph asked: ‘Where is God whose image we worship in Pandemonium?’
Abdiel said,’ Why his image?’
‘Man is made in his image. So is written. So he must have an image.’ The Angel replied, ‘You must be really fom Pandemonium. So many sects each interpreting the Word after his fashion can be dizzying. I can understand that.’ But Abdiel was sure that he got it all wrong.
He explained man was created in the nature of God. The seraph shook his head violently as though it were a preposterous suggestion. Abdiel tried another tack. ‘The will of man,- from where did he get that?’
‘You mean man was created in the image of divine Will?
But then man was expelled from God?’
‘Why not?’ Abdiel asked,’ Adam thought his will was greater than that of God?
The seraph fell silent. Then it dawned on him and he asked, ‘So Paradise is only for those who remain within his Will?
In the end seraph asked timidly,’ Can I remain then here?’
Abdiel turned to him and fixed his eyes on him. He said,’You really mean it?’
At that there was a whirlwind and it became a light breeze. Abdiel whispered ,’There is the Lamb slain before the foundation of the worlds,- with the book of Life.’ The seraph didn’t know what was going on. He saw nothing.Neither the lamb or Son of man but the luminous outline of a scroll in which he saw his own name. His own name!
‘I see my own name!’ He asked in a bustle, ‘when was this written?’
Abdiel said casually,’Before the worlds began. It was in the will of God, you know.’
Seraph felt a thrill:’So my coming here was determined even before we set out?’
‘Sure.’ Abdiel said,’You coming to see him was,- what shall I say, placing your will subordinate to his.’
‘So the divine Will would have no one perish?’
Angel Abdiel didn’t answer, There was plenty of time for seraph to understand mysteries of divine Will.
Tailpiece: For God Time and Space signifies not in the sense these concepts mean to us. If he were subject to these he would not be Immortal or Omnipresent. Wisdom and Power is the essence of his Will. He willed it and heavens and the earth came into being. Man calls it the Big Bang, Evolution and so on.
