|Seraphic Transport -- Part II|
Continuing from Part I.
From Paper 39:
In Satania, your system, they carry passengers back and forth from Jerusem and otherwise serve as interplanetary transporters.
Human beings have sometimes been permitted to observe seraphim that were being prepared for transport service, and the traditions of these experiences have largely determined the Urantian concept of angels.
By this time the transport seraphim has become an almost transparent, vibrating, torpedo-shaped outline of glistening luminosity.
The following account was published by Aime Michel in Mysterieux Objets Celestes, Criterion Books, 1958 (Mysterious Celestial Objects). For a brief description see:
The date was September 14, 1954, the time approximately 5:00 PM in the southwest of France. The sky had dark, low scudding clouds; it was windy. The witness was not identified.It was about five in the afternoon. Emerging from the thick layer that looked like a storm coming up, we saw a sort of luminous blue-violet mist, of a regular shape something like a cigar or a carrot. Actually, the object came out of the layer of clouds in an almost horizontal position, slightly tilted toward the ground and pointing forward, like a submerging submarine. This luminous cloud appeared rigid. Whenever it moved, it movements had no connection with the movement of the clouds, and it moved all of a piece, as if it were actually some gigantic machine surrounded by mist. It came down rather fast from the ceiling of clouds to an altitude which we thought was perhaps a half-mile above us. Then it stopped, and the point rose quickly until the object was in a vertical position, where it became motionless. During this time the dark clouds went scudding across the sky, dimly lighted from underneath by the violet luminosity of the object. It was an extraordinary sight, and we watched it intently. All over the countryside other farmers had also dropped their tools and were staring up at the sky like us. All at once
white smoke exactly like a vapor trail came from the lower end of the cloud. At first it pointed to the ground but finally rose up to describe around the vertical object an ascending spiral. While the rear of the trail was dissolving in the air and being carried off by the wind, the source of the trail went up to the very top of the vertical object and then started to come down again, turning in the other direction. Only then, after the smoke trail had vanished entirely, could we see the object that was sowing it ù a little metallic disk, reflecting in its rapid movements flashes of light from the huge vertical object. The little disk then stopped turning around the luminous cloud and went down toward the ground again, this time moving away. For quite a few minutes we could see it flying low over the valley, darting here and there at great speed, sometimes speeding up, then stopping for a few seconds, then going on again, flying in every direction between villages that were four miles apart. Finally, when it was almost a mile from the vertical object it made a final dash toward it at headlong speed and disappeared like a shooting star into the lower part, where it had first come out. Perhaps a minute later the carrot leaned over as it began to move, accelerated and disappeared into the clouds in the distance. The whole thing lasted about half an hour.
We can see from the description in the Urantia Papers that the objects becomealmost transparent, vibrating, torpedo-shaped outline of glistening luminosity. This glistening luminosity is described in the above report as a luminous cloud.
The strange mist surrounding the objects is described in many reports. I showed how a torpedo-shaped object photographed in Peru left behind a trail of vapor.
We can also see that the objects becomealmost transparent. One can look "through" the objects. Light from, and physical properties of, the surrounding environment is visible "through" them.
Both of these properties of becoming transparent, and with a mist surrounding the objects, were captured in a series of photographs by an unidentified Army Private of a circular object in September, 1957 at Ft Belvoir, VA. There were 15 witnesses, including two others who also took photographs. The Army Private did not report this incident until 1966.
