After this I looked, I’m pretty sure, I’m fairly confident of this, and behold, a door was opened in heaven: “Bastards!” I heard Bobby joking, the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; you know, occasionally I have severe attacks of tinnitus which render the traffic noise strangely mute; which said, Come hither, and I will shew you things which must be hereafter, according to the signs and signals which you shall recognize in the ordinary phenomena and phenomenology of every day. And immediately I was in the spirit: and behold, a loading dock was set in heaven and the garage doors were open. And he that sat was to look upon like unto a jasper and sardine stone with crows laughing at us: and there was a rainbow, or at least a shiny glare that impeded seeing it too clearly, everything was so shiny and bright like Southern Calif. often is, in sight like unto an emerald, or could be a plate of water. And round about were four and twenty big box stores, warehouses and parking lots, insufferably immense, and entering into them and coming out of them engine noise and sirens and voices: there were also seven “lamps” (which were not “lamps” per se but halogen dichroic reflector lamps) “of fire” (100 W each in banks of 20), and everything looked really cool and shiny, crystalline and hard, all surface and refraction, which are the six Spirits of God. And before the parking lot there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the parking space, and around the parking space, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind (cars). And the first beast was like a lion (SUV) and the second beast like a calf (Yaris), and the third beast had the face of a man (somebody), and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. Like. And the four beasts had each of them six sexual postures that they might take at any moment; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, etc., Mr. God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. Of course! The crowds pouring out of the four and twenty big box stores into the parking lots stagger out to the mystical beasts (vehicles), fall down before him that sat on the throne (driver), and worship him that liveth (or close to it) for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the loading docks, saying, Thou art worthy, Old Mister, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things (or at least fixed a price to them), and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
