Angels & Demons

Filed under: Freestyle — Fei @ 8:50 pm

Before Dan Brown became famous for his best seller Da Vinci Code, he wrote another bestselling mystery novel about Robert Langdon: Angels & Demons. In the novel, Landon and a beautiful lady, Vittoria, follow the "path of illumination" at the night of Papal election, trying to dig out the secrete group illuminati. The path is directed by the statues of angels in churches. However, a "demon" always sits beside the angel, disguising the real path. (Disclaimer: this is not a real plot of the novel. Interested people please click here for the true story.)

However, this topic is not about the novel, nor is it about religion. It’s about mortal human beings. In my opinion, like in many religions, human is the unity of angel and demon (like camerlengo?). Sometimes we are more like angles, sometimes we are not.  So, we may want to tell good from bad, right from wrong, angels from demons. However, we must also realize that the notion of "good", "right", "angel" differs from person to person. It can be best illustrated by the recent head to head "debate" between Chavez and Bush in the United Nations speeches.

This is the topic to express my feelings, about me, about you, about everyone else, in an imprecise manner.
