The Fourth Personal Sojourn of Beelzebub on the Planet Earth

“The members belonging to the sixth section were called ‘Akhaldanmistessovors,’ that is to say, beings who studied every kind of fact arising outside of themselves, those
actualized consciously from without and also those arising spontaneously, and which of them, and in what cases, are erroneously perceived by beings.

“The three-brained beings of your planet who became members of this society actually did a great deal in respect of approaching objective knowledge which had never been done there before and which perhaps will never be repeated.

“And here it is impossible not to express regret and to repeat that to the most great misfortune of all terrestrial three-brained beings of all later epochs, it was just then—when after incredible being-labors by members of that great society the required tempo of work had already been established with regard to discernment, conscious on their part, and also with regard to their unconscious preparation for the welfare of their descendants—that, in the heat of it all, certain of them constated, as I have already told you, that something serious was to occur to their planet in the near future.
