'No!' Riker said... 'This might be the trap Worf suspected.'

'I rather doubt that, sir,' Data said. 'My study this morning leads me to conclude that this is the eternal hellfire and damnation that Earth's Judeo-Christian ethic speaks of. It would make sense, since this officer was raised within that tradition.'

'And she was literally scared to death,' Riker said. " [Many refs. to the Furies throughout the novel. Their appearance makes them look like demons and devils from a variety of traditions, including Judeo-Christian.]

Christ, from the tomb, fears to come forth should he be unrecognized by doubting Thomas. The shadow of Allah melts at noon. So Christians and Muslims confront a world torn by many wars to finalize yet a larger. Moses did not walk down the mountain for he never walked up. Christ did not die for he was never born.

Jung said he had to 'prepare those few who will hear me for coming events which are in accord with the end of an era.' How about that? Sound familiar?'

'Jung was no Christian.'

'Don't bet on it. He said the world situation was just right to goose people into expecting a redeeming, supernatural event. the only thing keeping them from having visions was that we were supposed to be a scientific culture.

Beardy went on, 'Dr. Jung was particularly interested in saucers with the appearance of a circle divided into four parts. He relates such shapes to what Mahayana Buddhism calls mandalas. A mandala is a symbol of psychic unity--the individual mind embattled against insanity. It is apt to appear at times of great stress and danger, as today, when the individual is torn and shaken by his horror of atomic destruction, his dread of being depersonalized, made into one more soldier-slave or consumer-robot in a totalitarian horde...'
