it was amazing

I can't say I've ever read the book with the attention that is required. I went through it once, in college, and am willing to give it another go. The very interesting thing about its book is that it "speaks" to the reader who utilizes the exercise -- to read the book with all of ones attention -- on a body-sybolic level. You understand the book in a way beyond the sometimes awkward science-fiction fantasy adventure.

And there is an incredible melancholy that permeates this book. The melancholy of Beelzebub/Lucifer. Is it because he tampered in the rational funstioning of the universe. If so, then why is he, in old age, going triumphantly, to get a reward from His Endlessness, the so-called marriage of Heaven and Hell"?

Alejandro Dominguez because it´s all an illusion, created by the same god in all dimensions.
