Bonded Seraphim, Part I

Part I, Part II

Abstract

In The Cherubim Model of Elementary Particles series, I wrote that, according to my interpretation of Ezekiel's metaphorical writings, the electron is a composite particle that consists of four elementary particles called cherubim. Every cherub carries 1/4 of the charge and 1/4 of the mass of the electron. To my surprise, I discovered the existence of experimental evidence that strongly corroborates the Cherubim model. Additionally, the motion of a cherub is restricted to an absolute two-dimensional plane. It follows that the motion of an electron is likewise restricted. I then introduced the concept of cherubim bonding in order to explain the observed unrestricted motion of electrons in normal 3D space.

The Cherubim Model stands in sharp contrast to the Standard Model or even the Rishon Particle Model. The former postulates that the electron is an elementary particle (that is to say, |e| is the elementary charge) while the latter posits that the electron is composed of three elementary particles called rishons, each having 1/3 of the charge of the electron. In this multi-part article, I would like to change the focus a little by revisiting the dynamics of seraphim (see: The Lattice Hypothesis for more info on seraphim). In light of what I previously described concerning the motion of cherubim, I now believe that some form of bonding is needed to explain seraphim motion as well. Please read the previous articles before continuing.

Seraphim Motion Revisited

Early on, I assumed that the motion of seraphim (the burning ones) had a straight forward explanation. I reasoned that, since every seraph had six wings with which to move (two for each of the three spatial dimensions), it had no trouble moving in any of the six directions of normal 3-D space.
I held on to that assumption for a long time even though I knew from reading Isaiah 6:2 (see below) that seraphim could only use two wings for motion. I argued that seraphim likely had the ability to switch from one pair of wings to another on the fly. It turns out that I was mistaken.

In truth, I was never quite satisfied with my original explanation. For one, the ancient texts make no mention of any sort of sustained back and forth wing swapping during seraphic motion. Second, it occurred to me that saying that a seraph could swap wings on the fly was really no different than saying that it could use three wings. The problem is that Isaiah insisted that every seraph uses only two wings for motion. Obviously, something had to give. Not too long ago, I came to realize that, even though my wing hypothesis was basically sound, my understanding of the mechanism of seraphim motion had to be revised.

The Curious Wings of the Seraphim

I have learned the hard way that anyone who attempts to interpret the ancient metaphorical texts would do well to pay close attention to the little details, regardless of how unimportant they may appear. For example, consider the following verse from the book of Isaiah.
Isaiah 6:2
Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.
The fact that the seraphim are standing tells us not only that they have feet but also that they are not always moving. This makes sense because, according to the lattice hypothesis, every seraph is initially at absolute rest in the lattice. Indeed, one of the foundational principles of the hypothesis is that the motion of a particle can only be sustained via interactions with other particles. Knowing that every seraph has six wings and a single face, we can infer that the seraphim are identical to the living creatures mentioned in the book of Revelation. What is strange is that every seraph uses only two wings for movement. It is strange because, as I indicated previously, it restricts the seraph's motion to a two-dimensional plane. This is unacceptable because light, which consists of moving seraphim, is observed to move in any arbitrary direction.

Upcoming

It turns out that, as with cherubim, seraphim motion can be explained via something I have been calling la mano de Dios. What is even more intriguing is that each seraph are said to have two wings covering its feet and two wings covering its face. What could this possibly mean? I will explain these enigmas in Part II. Coming soon.
