Dear /tg/
I know I got this picture of here and I've seen it requested more than once. I believe it is based of someone's description of an Angel in the bible but I'm unsure. So my question is if anyone knows where it comes from. If it is from the bible who's description was it based off?


In return I'll dump my angel folder or other monsters upon request

It's from Ezekiel's vision. In the book of Ezekiel.

That is an Ophan, plural Ophanim, one of the wheels of the celestial chariot.

Its in several versions of the bible, the Koran, and many transcriptions from a passage in which someone saw an angel.

Theres an angel described as a wheel of fire. The Ophanim, I think that's correct. From the book of Enoch. I think they're in Daniel also.

strangely enough, "wheels within wheels" and the general nested circular imagery is what I sometimes get from hallucinogenics. mmm?

I'm witting a short story in which the main character is visited by them in his sleep. I found actually describing them to be a royal pain in the ass and figured reading the original my help.

Has anyone else noticed the similarity between these angels and art associated with LSD and other hallucinogens? Seems to me which ever old guys came up with this stuff were probably high as giraffe pussy.

Considering they used to anoint the altar and the priests with cannabis oil, and that there's strong suspicion of ergot or psilocibin use associated with certain sacraments and rituals... I'm guessing they were pretty fucking out there.

I'm a big believer in the concept of conscious life force and I don't think of it as everyone having a separate soul. Think of it as radio waves, and people are receivers. What comes in on your "station" is based on your physical body. Sometimes signals overlap.
