{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}

The Elders are sitting around their table as usual. Rosh-Seraph is not among them.

GEBURAH 
The new age has begun.

SHAFAT 
Let us create humans with freewill and place the repented demons in them as living souls. Let them pay for their deed by death, then, we shall resurrect them and bring them back to their glory.

TSALACH 
Then, we’ll give humans the form of animals, at least they’re paying for their own evil deeds.

SIMCHAH 
Hmm… how will they be able to gain back their glory if we make them look exactly like their own creatures? They will never forgive us when they come back. Father may never forgive us as well, you know, he made them in an angelic form. Let us lift the curse for good.

TSALACH
Come on, they won’t even realize it and they’ll have conscience, that’s what will make them different from the animals. Besides, they can reason. So, when they come back, they’ll be exactly as they were; like angels.

ANAH 
All right, then they shall have a new body, new memory and new age.

KOACH 
Let’s talk more about their nature. I don’t think we’d want to create them all at the same time. I think we should come up with the idea of rebirth.

SHAFAT
Hmm… rebirth. That’s really a complete world of their own as said the prophecy.

YAKACH 
That’s exactly what father means.

TIPHARAH 
They will be very difficult to control if anything goes wrong in the process.

EMUNAH 
You’re right. Satan may make them his target since we’re making them under his nose. Since we’re made of fiery light, we will make them in such a way that their nature will oppose ours.

TIQVAH 
Why?

EMUNAH
So that it will be very difficult for Satan and his demons to control or be like them just in case something goes wrong.

TIQVAH
It will also be the same for us, we can’t control them that much too.

EMUNAH
A world of their own. That’s it, Tiqvah. We don’t need to control them if they go away. Let’s believe they can survive by themselves.

AMAN 
We’ll protect the entire zone where we will place humans. For the rebirth, they will have to be in pairs and remember, they won’t have to be alone. We’ll make animals for them, they’ll have a kingdom exactly like what we have here in the Territories of Shamayim.

SHAFAT
That’s a good point.

OSHER 
We’ll make them male and female, just like the angels. But they will possess reproductive organs unlike the angels. The male becomes a Man and the female a Woman. They shall mate to reproduce. The Woman shall carry a womb where souls shall form as babies. This means of mating to reproduce will also apply to all the animals and creatures.

BERAKAH 
(nods)
By that, we’ll be able to influence them through their parents and make them obey laws.

TUB 
Remove law from them if you want peace. It was the law that made them go away and get themselves into this mess. When they’ll be back here, they can then be under the law.

AMATS 
We’ll make them a law that will suit their nature, Tub.

YASHAR 
The Son of The Most High  will come through them. He’ll be under such law and in the form of animals as well. Or am I missing something?

SHAFAT
Yeah! We are in the image of the Most High. So, Let us make Man in our own image. Since it is through Man that the Most High’s Son will be reborn.
(silence befalls the Elders for a while)
It’s up to us to prepare the way as said the prophecy.

TAHOR 
Giving them a reproductive organ will tamper with the nature of the Most High’s Son.

SHAFAT
Don’t worry about that, Tahor, when the time comes, we’ll know how to go about that. That’s not a problem at all.

HUPOMONE 
In that case, we’ll make sure that humans obey the law of rebirth. If Satan finds a way to communicate with them and maybe deceive them, he may discourage them from making babies in order to avert the birth of the Most High’s Son.

HADAR 
We shall inject love into their mating process. It will be irresistible, so even if Satan finds a way to get to them, he can never stop their reproductive process.

SHAFAT
That’s right. So that when the Most High’s Son shall come, nothing will be able to stand in his way.

TIQVAH
Then as Tsalach said, we’ll give humans the form of an animal. That is, we’ll make them from dust but still in our image. The Most High’s Son can transform himself at any time to his glorious state. He should just be born, that’s just our goal.

QARA 
Since the Most High’s Son will come through them, then we shouldn’t create Man to die. As a respect to the Most High and to the Son, let us make Man Immortal but if he follows Satan, he becomes mortal. By removing the death penalty sake of the Son, Man shall live for One day, which shall be a thousand years in his own world’s time. And once he completely lives for a thousand years, he will be transformed into his glorious angelic state directly without dying.

SHAFAT
That means, we shall create a Seed of life from the powers in our crowns, which shall carry immortality and great authority in it. If Man loses it, he dies. So, when the Most High’s Son shall come, it won’t be our fault anymore. This is how it will be: Man will be placed in all the planets in Olam-Chuphshah, then we’ll secure one unique planet for the Most High’s Son. It is in this unique planet that we will place the first man, of whom the Most High’s Son will come through.

SHALOM 
Man shall have dominion over Olam-Chuphshah and its creatures with the Seed of life, and can receive glory from the Most High through the Seed. If we do this, he’ll honour it and will never let it go since Satan may trick him to lose it.

SHAFAT
Yes! Since the Seed of life will be made from the powers in our crowns, even Satan cannot withstand its power. It will only serve the one who is authorised to use it. So, we’ll make the Seed of life very powerful that as long as it is in the possession of Man, he will be the king and owner of the universe and Satan can never gain authority over him. So that when the Most High’s Son will come, he’ll take possession of the Seed of life and rule Olam-Chuphshah forever. As for Satan, he’ll crumble in chains when the time comes.

CHEN 
That may really piss him off.

SHAFAT
So what?

CHESED 
In addition, through the Seed of life shall Man be able to connect with us. We shall make a direct link from the Seed of life to Meltsar and to Qadosh-Nabab. He’ll be able to pray to us and the Most High directly and we’ll be able to respond quickly as well because of the Seed of life.

TUB
With the Seed of life, humans, animals and all creatures will never be hungry or taste for food because of the presence of the Most High that shall get to them through the Seed.

KOACH
You’re right. That will make Man add great importance to the Seed.

SHAFAT
But in order for this to happen, the first Man and Woman must come from angels who dwell in the presence of the Most High. The thing is, these demons will be born with a wicked heart though the Seed will not let that get activated, if they lose it then they’ll fall back into wickedness. So, we must send angels before them.

SIMCHAH
That will give us the advantage to get to them and nurture others through them by sending messengers that will not be bound by Man’s weakness or penalty in case they fall. These messengers shall teach them our ways since Man will not have the memory of his previous world.

QARA
I don’t think Man will lose the Seed, so let’s keep the messenger thing aside.

SHAFAT
No, Qara, we have to expect and prepare for everything. Ok? Don’t forget, it’s Olam-Chuphshah, that’s a free world. A crown is there; anything can happen.

YAKACH
It’s a one-way journey for the first Man or for all the humans that will be in all the planets of Olam-Chuphshah. It doesn’t matter if they were angels, once they become humans, they are accountable for their deeds whether good or evil and liable to go to Yam-Esh. So, such sacrifice, who will be able to bear it?

GADOL 
Don’t forget, that is if something goes wrong which we’re not going to let happen though. With the Seed of life, Man will never have the knowledge of good and evil. That’s what we’ll do to prevent evil; remove the knowledge of good and evil from the Seed.

SHAFAT
Hmm… that’s a very good point.

TIPHARAH
After making Man; what if he later betrays us? What shall be done to him, knowing that we gave him a second chance after abusing the Most High and His kingdom in…

SHAFAT
(interrupts)
Right now, they’re meant for Yam-Esh, if they commit more atrocity against the Most High, Yam-Esh is always there to welcome them. Okay, so let’s talk about reviving Olam-Chuphshah for the sake of Man and the Most High’s Son. We shall use Earth for Man who will bear the Seed.

AMATS
The former planet of Satan?

SHAFAT
When he was Lucifer. Remember, we’re preparing the way for a new Lucifer.

CHESED
That means, when we revive that planet, all the creatures he created including the bad ones will be revived and keep reproducing for as long as Earth shall live?

SHAFAT
And they’ll all be under humans, besides, we’re reviving all the planets, not just earth, Chesed.

CHESED
Hmm… humans having dominion over our own creatures, how does that sound in your ears?

SHAFAT
That was a gift, let’s leave a gift; a gift. We’ll trap Satan and all the impenitent in Tehom.

CHESED
Okay. That will save us the trouble of human losing the Seed.

SHAFAT
But no matter how we manage to revive Olam-Chuphshah, the light of the Most High can never ever shine on its walls, and besides, Olam-Chuphshah is meant for destruction in the end. It’s a curse, which only the Most High’s Son can remove. But we can revive all the dead stars, planets and moons.

GEBURAH
Then, we’ll need three volunteers from the angels. Risking the lives of all humans in the universe by giving the Seed to repented demons on earth is not a good idea.

SHAFAT
Yes, one shall become the Man and the other becomes the Woman.

TAHOR
And the third one will be the one to carry the Most High’s Son in her womb when he comes.

SHAFAT
Thank you!

GEBURAH
We will put the Seed in the hands of the angels who will accept the task and place them on earth. We should never put it in the hands of the repented demons no matter what.

HADAR
Since it is through earth that the Most High’s Son will come, we should use uncorrupted beings all through. I agree with Geburah.

SHAFAT
Even if we’ll do that, only three persons need to first volunteer as a sacrifice for others.

YAKACH
If by chance humans on earth lose the Seed, it means that all repented demons will have to go through earth. Unless there are survivors on other planets who can fight through, but they can’t be accountable for their evil deeds afterwards. Only earth people will be accountable for their evil deeds at the end for losing the Seed.

CHEN
If that happens, we can’t control wickedness on earth. Secondly, if the Seed is not with earth beings, there is no way lives in other planets can survive, so, earth beings may be alone in Olam-Chuphshah.

SHAFAT
That won’t happen but if it does, then we’ll prepare the way of the Most High’s son in regards to the prophecy and let the defaulters suffer for their wicked acts. Agreed?

THE ELDERS
(In unison)
We agree!

SHAFAT
We should now worry about getting true volunteers.

YAKACH
That’s where the math becomes tough. Who will accept to take these tasks?
