Capt. Paul Tyler

This is probably what happened in the beginning. Archangel Michael said to God, “If thy world is to be one of conflict, what about the scientists? Against what will they struggle?” God replied, “Scientists shall encounter those whose purpose is to obscure truth, even for noble purposes.”

This story perfectly explains Captain Paul Tyler, M.D. of the United States Navy. The green jinn of science could exert no influence on him because he was never a scientist. But his spirit was subject to the pull and tug of the red jinn of patriotism. Its influence required him to do the direct opposite of what the green jinn influenced me to do. Tyler was my enemy on earth even though we might be together in heaven. See Going Somewhere.
