The Fourth Personal Sojourn of Beelzebub on the Planet Earth

“Thanks to these inquiries, Belcultassi gradually succeeded in evoking sincerity in his friends and acquaintances, and as a result it turned out that all of them sensed and saw in themselves everything just the same as he did.

“Now among these friends and acquaintances of Belcultassi, there were several earnest beings who were not yet entirely slaves to the action of the consequences of the properties of the organ Kundabuffer, and who, having penetrated to the gist of the matter also became very seriously interested in it and began to verify that which proceeded in themselves, and independently to observe those around them.

“Soon after, on the initiative of the same Belcultassi, they began to meet together from time to time, and to share their observations and new constatations.

“After prolonged verifications, observations, and impartial constatations, this entire group of terrestrial beings also became categorically convinced, just like Belcultassi himself, that they were not as they ought to be.

“Not long after, many others also having such presences joined that group of terrestrial beings.

“And later they founded that society which they named the ‘Society of Akhaldans.’

“By the word Akhaldan the following conception was then expressed:

“ ‘The striving to become aware of the sense and aim of the Being of beings.’

“From the very beginning of the foundation of this society, Belcultassi himself stood at its head, and the subsequent actions of the beings of this society proceeded under his general guidance.

“For many terrestrial years this society existed under the said name, and its member-beings were then called ‘Akhaldansovors’; but later, when the members of this society, for purposes of a general character, were divided into a number of independent groups, the members belonging to different groups came to be called by different names.
