Book of Fragapatti Chapter 21, Chapter 22
1. After Fragapatti had examined the places of the asaphs and of the physicians, and such
other places as belong in the lower heavens, he descended to Hochedowa, the land of
delusion, the happy hunting ground, in order to witness the games and tournaments,
which were so far maintained by a great expenditure of labor on the part of the ethereans,
for teaching by subjective illustrations. Jehovih said:
2. As mortal children can be taught by objective illustration, so have I created My es
worlds capable of a similar process subjectively. My rules are not man’s rules; nor are My
worlds illustrated as man illustrateth. Behold My rainbow, which is a subjective
illustration to mortals of a bow without the substance of a bow. But man bendeth a stick,
and saith: Behold, a bow! And he holdeth it in his hand; but Mine he cannot touch.
3. I gave to mortals to teach their sons and daughters many combinations by the use
of objects; that they should know a circle, a square, a triangle, or learn to compute
numbers by the use of objects. Inversely in the same way I created subjective means
for the spirits of the dead, that they might be taught and amused with My works.
4. To corporeans I give corporeal eyes and corporeal ears, that they might attain to
wisdom on the earth; but to a few I give su’is, that they may see and hear things
5. To the spirits of mortals who die in infancy, I give spiritual eyes and spiritual ears; but
without cultivation they hear not corporeal things, nor see corporeal things. But to such
spirits as have fulfilled an earth life, I created them to see and hear after death the matters
of both worlds.
6. Nevertheless, there are many spirits in heaven who have not fulfilled either a spiritual
or a corporeal life, and they can see but little and hear but little; for which reason
I commanded that they should be called drujas, signifying, spirits of darkness.
7. And I sent My Gods and My Lords, saying to them: Go ye to the spirits of darkness, for
they neither see nor hear heaven nor earth, and are wandering about indifferent even to
their own nakedness.
8. And ye shall create mirrors and lenses, and optical illusions and delusions, and provide
games and entertainments for them, so that their understanding may be opened up for the
glory of My kingdoms.
9. When the avalanza arrived at Hochedowa, it was lowered and made as an observatory,
in order to witness what was going on, and yet so provided that it could be moved about
from place to place.
10. And they witnessed the heavenly tournaments and games; the boating and fishing and
hunting, and all other entertainments representative of what these angels had
been engaged at in mortal life; and yet these things were but subjective, and not real.
11. But it came to pass that many drujas were restored to memory of earth-life; restored to
seeing and hearing, and, in fact, to know they had entered another world; illustrating to
their dull senses that it was possible for them to learn to see things, and to hear things,
12. Nevertheless, there were within these regions hundreds of millions of angels so stupid
as to be void of form and expression.
13. Jehovih had said: When a man hath fainted, thou shalt arouse him, by calling
his memory to things past. And when the druj in heaven hath seen who he is,
and his place also, thou shalt show him symbols of things past, and thus awake him.
14. Jehovih had said: Behold, O man, thou art the chiefest glory of My creations. Neither
created I any animal that walketh on land, or flieth in the air, or swimmeth in the water, or
that crawleth on its belly, with desire for spiritual life, nor with capacity to accumulate
spiritually. But to thee only, O man, have I given power to aggregate the spiritual entity.
15. For My animals, I bestowed like a vessel that is full of water; no more can be put into
them; and also, when the vessel is destroyed, the water runneth back to the ocean. I
quickened them into life by Mine Own hand; but when I take away My hand, lo, they are
gone back into dissolution. As a drop of water hath no power before the sun, but
evaporateth and is seen no more, so is the spirit of all the animals I created before
the light of my countenance. But to thee, O man, I gave power for everlasting life.
16. Nevertheless, as a man may take a drop of water and put it in a vial, and keep it for
a long time, so have I given to My exalted angels power to take the spirit of a fish, or
of an animal, suddenly dead, and reclothe it with the semblance of a body, for a season;
but yet it is only a subjective existence. And, even as a man letteth a stone out of
his hand, and it falleth to the ground, so, when My angels let go their hands on
My spiritual animals, their spirits fall into the sea of My body, and are seen no more.
Even so, also, but in less degree, created I the trees, the grass, the moss, and all vegetable
things that grow on the face of the earth. And I gave to My exalted angels power to
take the spirit out of a tree, or a bush, or a plant, and to carry it away and reclothe it
with corporeal substance. But to My exalted Gods I gave power to do the same things, not
with one plant only, but with whole forests, and with animals, and fishes, and serpents.
And when they do these things in atmospherea, they are called subjective heavens.
17. Wherefore it came to pass in the ancient days that when spirits of darkness returned to
mortals, they told them that heaven was like unto the earth, with everlasting life unto all
animals as well as to man. Turn not away from such spirits, O man, but learn from them
that thou mayst not tarry long in My bound heavens, when thou becomest a spirit also.
18. For if thou settest thy soul to feed on animals, and to dwell with them, the Gods
cannot deliver thee to My emancipated heavens, till thou hast served thy time in the
lower heavens. One great light have I bestowed unto all men, that they may progress
forever. Though the waters of the ocean rise up and make clouds; and the clouds fall
down as rain and run to the rivers, and thence back into the ocean, a thousand times,
ten thousands of times, yet that water hath not progressed. Neither have I given
progress to a stone, nor to a tree, nor to an animal; but to man only have I given progress.
19. Be wise, O man, and tie not thyself to things that progress not, nor set thy soul upon
them, lest they become a bondage to thee in the next world. But for the druks, I have
created heavens midway betwixt light and darkness, subjective and objective, that they
may be redeemed.
20. Fragapatti also visited the Washa’wow’wow, the great hunting fields; and the place of
tournaments, the Se’ka’to’si, where thousands and tens of thousands of drujas were being
amused, and instructed, and awakened to their condition and to their possibilities. And
when Fragapatti and his hosts had seen the beauty and grandeur of this lowest of heavens,
and made a record of the affairs, Yaton’te said:
21. Now have I shown thee, O Fragapatti, the foundation of a great house, even my
kingdom, which is Jehovih’s. I am at thy service, to go whithersoever thou mayst desire.
Then spake Fragapatti, saying:
22. I desire to descend beneath, even to the earth’s surface, and survey the plains, and
rivers, and lakes, in the regions where the Father’s kingdom will be founded. Let my
mathematicians compute the time, and these things shall also be recorded in the etherean
libraries, for benefit of the angels of that day.
23. The mathematicians computed the time, and then Yo’tse’putu, the chief, said: Eight
thousand nine hundred years! So Fragapatti caused the avalanza to be lowered down to
the earth’s surface, and he coursed the land over, east and west and north and south, and
when he saw it was a fair country as to land and water, he said:
24. Behold the Wisdom of Jehovih in the foundation and plans for inhabiting
and subduing the earth. And yet, eight thousand nine hundred years! O what
innumerable millions on the earth will go down in darkness ere that day! Here the Light
will fall! Here the beginning of the death of Seffas! Yet Thy Hand, O Jehovih, is over all.
1. Fragapatti sent messengers to Hapacha, God of Ipseogee, apprising him of the visit. So,
Hapacha hastily called in his Lords and captains and fathers, preparing a time of
recreation, and also preparing suitable reception and entertainment.
2. And Hapacha provided in this manner: First, one hundred thousand musicians, formed
in eight parts of a circle, with eight intervening spaces. With each group he provided one
thousand marshals, and they stood in front of the musicians, with eight intervening spaces
also. Next within, he provided places for the messengers, of whom there were three
hundred thousand. Then next came the asaphs, of whom there were one million; next
came the ashars, of whom there were two millions; next, came the nurses and physicians;
next, the teachers in factories and schools and colleges; and of all these there were
fourteen millions six hundred thousand.
3. Of the grade first above the es’yans there were twenty millions; of the second grade,
which was the highest, there were thirty millions; but no es’yans were present.
4. In the midst of the circle was the throne of Hapacha, now extended so as to
accommodate his Lords. To the south of his throne were the seats of the captains
of the hosts. In a crescent were his counselors, of whom there were one million.
5. Hapacha having thus called them together, and having explained to but few of them the
purpose, now addressed them, saying:
6. By the Wisdom and Power of Jehovih I speak before you. That which I say is not of
myself, more than of the faith I have in Jehovih, of which faith ye are likewise blessed.
7. Since our youth up we have been advised by the guardian angels, their Lords and
God, to be firm in faith in Jehovih above all things. For it was declared to us, in the
olden times, that there was a higher heaven and a lower heaven, and that through
faith in the Father we should all ultimately ascend and dwell in His Holiest Kingdoms.
8. For which reason ye have been steady workers since your mortal lives have been
put away; even for this kingdom, raising up many, and causing them to rejoice
in everlasting life. But as it has been promised ye beforehand that the Gods above
us would surely come and deliver all who are prepared for the next resurrection,
even so, to this day, cherish ye the hope for wider fields of labor, where ye
may overtake your kindred and others who have become wise in Jehovih’s light.
9. The time of that resurrection is near at hand for many of you. Our Father hath
brought this heaven into a lighter region, that ye may be prepared for that still
greater light beyond. And because of the new light that is with us, ye have beholden
that many of the I’huan es’yans have deserted our nurseries and gone back to the
earth, for they love the darkness of earth more than they love the light of heaven.
10. My Lords have sent messengers to me from various parts of the earth, saying to me:
As much as they have deserted your places in heaven, even so much have the es’yans
returned to mortals in great numbers. And it hath come to pass that great manifestations
of spirit presence are now common to men and women and children on earth.
11. Many of these es’yans, falling in with drujas, have adopted their roving habits,
denying that there is any higher heaven, honestly believing they will have an opportunity
to re-incarnate themselves and dwell again in mortal form. Knowing no higher heaven
than the earth, and, knowing no happiness save in the indulgence of lust, they appear
to mortals, and marry in manifestation, falsely pretending to be the kin of the living.
12. Which sign forerunneth the approach of a new dawn of dan near at hand. Being thus
doubly armed in prophecy, your God called you to witness the words and proceedings of
Fragapatti, who is on his way hither, accompanied by Yaton’te, God of Yaton’te, Creator
13. For more than six hundred years have many of us labored in this field, and our
harvests for Gau have been the most esteemed of all the resurrections contributed by the
Lords of earth. To comport with our dignity, I have commanded the builders of otevans to
have in readiness, representing these harvests, a vessel for my Lords and their attendants,
and my chief marshal, to go part way and meet our visitors, bearing the sign of the
triangle, and of fruit, and the altar.
14. Hapacha then gave instructions in full; and, presently, the receiving hosts departed in
the otevan, with music, rejoicing, being cheered by the hosts remaining. In the meantime,
Hapacha caused the house to be put in order.
