The luminous rock from the source of the Nile.


 
W
hen all of us arrived one by one on the top of the already known mountain and took our places, the old Markus with his wife and his children came to Me and asked Me most imploringly, that I also should stay the coming day with him, since it is too painful for him if I would leave him already before sun-up.
 
2
Says I: "Be unconcerned about that! I can go and stay, time does not forces Me; since I'm also the Lord of time and all times! Time never grows above My head. Nevertheless there are still many places which I have to visit and shall visit; but with Me it does not depend on a day and an hour, where I have found true, living love."
 
3
Says Markus with tears in his eyes: "O Lord and Father, forever thanks to You for such exceedingly great mercy! Only Your holy will prevails! But, Lord, the night is very dark, because the clouds have covered the sky quite densely; should I not bring torches up here?"
 
4
Says I: "Leave it, we will arrange for light!"
 
5
Hereupon I call on Raphael and says to him: "In the centre of Africa, there were the high Komrahai-Mountains are standing and the first fountain of the Nile bubbles from a rock, you will find ten men-heights beneath the surface rocks a rock the size of a person's head; bring it to Me, it will sufficiently illuminate the night for us! After you brought it here, put it on this bare tree trunk, so that its light penetrates far and illuminates the whole surrounding! That I have spoken with you now like with another person, took place for the sake of the people, so that they should know what is going to take place, and recognise My power during the execution of My will."
 
6
With that Raphael disappeared, but was like a flying light meteor immediately back with us including the sun bright shining stone.
 
7
But before Raphael could place the stone on the designated hollow and bare tree trunk, a few wanted to inspect the stone from close by.
 
8
But when Rahpael brought it closer, nobody was able to look at it because the light was so strong, as the sun for the earth on a shortest winter day, this means for the sight of the human flesh eye, and Raphael had no choice but to put it at the designated location. From there its intensive light illuminated the surrounding to such an extend, that one could still discern things in quite a distance.
 
9
That Zinka with his people and especially Zorel hardly dared to breath because of all the astonishment, can be easily understood. Zorel tried very hard to say something really sensible about it; but he was unable to say anything, because his still very much mathematical stereotypical concepts were now exposed to logical impossibilities by the appearance of the quick collection of the stone and its vehement light, which he, according to his experiences and his scientific knowledge, was unable to conquer. Firstly he was several times in Egypt with his female slaves, and one time even a few days travelling beyond the Cataracts. Therefore the distance to the upper Egyptian areas were not entirely foreign to him, since even with good camels he always needed about five to six weeks travel time to reach the Cataracts.
 
10
According to his calculations a hurricane would take three days and an arrow half a day to travel the distance. - What speed of movement the boy must have had, to cover a certainly three times longer distance in only a few moments! Is the youth a spirit, - how could he carry matter, and how could the matter, itself of the hardest type, be protected from destruction by the resistance of the air?! It doesn't exist in the laws of nature! Then there is the completely heat-free, sun-resembling intensive light; it just doesn't exist! No experience has ever discovered something like it, except with rotting wood, but this produces actually only such a matt light, that during the night, even in the strongest degree, it hardly equals the light of solstice worms!
 
11
Zorel thought about it for a while and said afterwards to Kornelius and Zinka: "This I want to call a real wonder; because something like this has never occurred on earth before! What type of rock this might be? From all the times until now, such a rock has never been discovered before! What value must this rock have for an emperor or king, provided that it does not loose its light after a while! Since on the wide-stretched coast of Africa up to very far behind the Hercules Pillars, till the area where the lower parts of the high Atlas are greeting the Atlantic Ocean, in late summer one can also see here and there very white and during the night at certain hours very luminous rocks; but their light does not last long, and if you take such a rock into a dry room, it's luminosity quickly fades away, and the stone therefore has lost its value. But with this rock it seems to be quite peculiar circumstances! It surely will never loose its light and therefore must have an incalculable value!"
 
12
Says Kornelius: "Not only because of its luminosity, but much more because of the way it was brought here! But lets leave it for now! Tomorrow during the day we will be able to investigate and assess it much easier as today; since then our eyes will be less sensitive because of the sun light than today, which means now in this thickest night, where the heavy clouds are making a blest face for a considerable country rain. But lets be quiet now; since the Lord will begin, what He has promised us down at the tables!"
 
13
With that Zorel is content and is completely eye and ear.
 
14
But now Ouran comes to Me and says: "Lord, what will happen to the stone tomorrow, and will it continue to keep its light?"
 
15
Says I: "With this question you actually have expressed the wish, that you want to own it for the crown! But this is not possible; because to conquer this rock, great en very destructible wars could erupt. Therefore My angel will take it back from where he collected it, and this will end all quarrels for good."
 
16
With this answer Ouran is fully content and returns to his place.
 
17
But Cyrenius says: "Lord! As a present for the Emperor this luminous rock would surely make a mighty impression."
 
18
Says I: "This for sure, but in the end it would also there, because of its high value, lend its light to wars, and that would be quite terrible! A few granules of it you can have, - but certainly not the whole rock!"
 
19
Says Cyrenius: "But how and in what manner does this rock has the ability of luminescence? What is its name?"
 
20
Says I: "These rocks does not actually belong to this earth, but is only indigenes to solar worlds. Now, in the big solar world large eruptions occur from time to time with a for your concepts all exceeding power release, by which quite often such rocks are caught and hurled with the biggest throwing power into the wide space of creation. And there you have one of them!
 
21
Its luminosity originates from its for your concepts most smoothest surface, on which continuously a lot of lightening fire accumulates, which through the named fire arouses anew the spirits banned in the exceedingly hard matter. In addition this rock is in the highest degree transparent, and therefore every inner activity of the spirits is also easily actively visible in the outer appearance of illumination and is of course increased by the outer activity of the fast passing spirits of the air on the highly smooth surface of the sphere.
 
22
These rocks are not found on the sun in a natural state, but are produced by the art of the hands of the people living there. Mostly they are already found in a spherical shape in the area of the great waters and originate always with eruptions. There in the highest degree molten mineral elements are driven far into the ether filled space and always take on the shape of a round drop in free space, according to the centre point striving and searching for the resting law, which is placed in all matter.
 
23
The falling back of such spheres, which can be of very different sizes, often takes days, weeks, month and with greater ones often many years, depending on how far they have been hurled away from the sun. Now, some fall on to the mountains of the sun and getting smashed; but many fall into the great waters, stay undamaged and are easily collected by the people of a solar world. Since the sun's people can easily stay under water for many hours and work on the bottom of the sea like on dry land, and this even more easier, since besides such nearly amphibia-like properties they also possess exceedingly effective diving instruments.
 
24
If a large sun building has been sufficiently provided with such spheres, they, despite already having in anyway a very smooth surface, are smoothed and polished with a lot of skilful diligence, namely to the degree where they start to illuminate during polishing. Once polishing has progressed to this point, they are placed on designated build pillars in the abundant occurring underground, catacomb-like, long aisle, where always a strong draught is present, and thereby more than sufficiently illuminate such underground aisles and serve at the same time as a special decoration for such aisles, which are in particular looked at on a solar world; since there not seldomly a completely ordinary residence is by far more decorated and ornamented, especially internally, as in Jerusalem the Salomo temple. And therefore it can be easily understood, that the solar people, particular those of the middle belt, also muster everything possible to decorate the underground aisles.
 
25
However, we are not gathered here, to provide an earth description of the great solar world, but for the sake of strengthening your faith and will. But to achieve this, a completely different than a however precise and comprehensive earth description of the great solar world is required!"
 
26
Ask Cyrenius: "Lord! If this illumines sphere is beyond all diamonds compact, how can one separate a few granules from its surface, which I'm very keen to own as a memorial of this evening?!"
 
27
Says I: "Sometimes you are still thinking quite earthly! There, from where this light ball originates, are still many more, be it now in Africa or on the sun itself, - for My angle the distance is everywhere the same. From this light ball however, of course no mortal can break loose a few granules without destroying it, and if he wanted to smash the sphere, the pieces would immediately loose the property of illumination; but the small spheres will always keep the illumines property. - But now seriously enough about this matter!"
