The Watchers

version

Who loves ya, baby?
"Out at the horizon, out near the burnished edge of the world, who are these visitors standing... these robed figures — perhaps, at this distance, hundreds of miles tall — their faces, serene, unattached, like the Buddha's, bending over the sea, impassive, indeed, as the Angel that stood over Lübeck during the Palm Sunday raid, come that day neither to destroy nor to protect, but to bear witness to a game of seduction... What have the watchmen of the world's edge come tonight to look for? Deepening on now, monumental beings stoical, on toward slag, toward ash the colour the night will stabilize at, tonight... what is there grandiose enough to witness?"

"Doc was noticing more and more lately among gatherings of carefree youth and happy dopers, older men, there and not there, rigid, unsmiling, with a defiant posture, like the operatives who dragged away Coy Harlingen at the rally for Vigilant California. Doc knew these people. He'd seen enough of them in the course of business. They went out to collect cash debts, they broke rib cages, they got people fired. They kept an unforgiving eye on anything that might become a threat. If everything in this dream was in fact doomed to end and the faithless, money-driven world to reassert its control, it would be agents like these, dutiful and silent, out doing the shitwork, who would make it happen."

Judging from contextual evidence, tradition and the absurdity of the alternatives, it is clear that the "sons of God" of Genesis 6 are nothing other than angelic beings, known in tradition as the Grigori, or 'Watchers.' These Watchers sinned by entering into illicit sexual unions with human women. These illicit unions were presumably part of Satan's plan for making war on the seed of the woman. The Watchers, true "seed of the nachash", were eventually punished by God for their sin. The offspring of these unions were the Nephilim, "giants", human offspring who were "mighty men" of great physical stature. God punishes mankind by sending a Flood to wipe out the wicked, corrupted race of men. Further sexual unions occur after the Flood and the nations begin to adore the Watchers as gods in exchange for their knowledge. God punishes these nations by "handing them over" to the Watchers, who become the gods of the nations. God takes one tribe for Himself, Israel, to be His special portion. The subsequent history of Israel is nothing other than a cosmic turf war between the people of God and the seed of the nachash. Joshua's conquest is specifically bound up with the destruction of the remaining Nephilim, which continues down to David's time. The Old Testament is a cosmic territorial struggle, opposition between one blood line and another that goes back to Genesis 3.

"Now and then, far off, human figures, robed and hooded, still, wind-ruffled, taller than the perspective would call for, stand and watch Maxine. No attempts at approach or welcome."

"Did he choose, more prudently, to escape to the Heights, he might, from above, squinting into the spray whose odor and taste are the life of the sea, behold a Company of Giant rob'd Beings, risen incalculably far away over the Horizon, bound this way upon matters forever unexplain'd, moving blind and remorseless across the Sea, as if the Island did not exist."

"It wasn't an organized affair. These recording angels never wrote anything down. It was more, if you will, a "group awareness." They merely watched, passive: you'd see them like sentinels at the top of a rubble pile any sunset..."

"One evening, just before sunset, they looked up at the wall of mountains, and all the way to the ridgeline there were these strange patches of light, everywhere, too bright for snow yet not orange or red enough for fire, as great sheets of glowing vapor swept the valley beneath, and against the reflection in the river of this incandescent passage, erect on an ancient bridge, above its pure arch in silhouette, stood a figure, cloaked, solitary, unmoving, not waiting, not beckoning, not even regarding the spectacle up on the mountainside, yet containing in its severe contours a huge compressed quantity of attention, directed at something Cyprian and Danilo couldn’t see, though presently they understood that they ought to have."

Remote Viewers is a tale of the Pentagon's attempts to develop the perfect tool for espionage: psychic spies. These psychic spies, or "remote viewers," were able to infiltrate any target, elude any form of security, and never risk scratch. For twenty years, the government selected civilian and military personnel for psychic ability, trained them, and put them to work, full-time, at taxpayers' expense, against real intelligence targets. The results were so astonishing that the program soon involved more than a dozen separate agencies, including the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Council, the FBI, the National Security Agency, the Secret Service, the Navy, the Army, the Air Force, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the US Customs Service, the US Special Forces Command, and at least one Pentagon drug-interaction task force. Most of this material is still officially classified.
