@Celestial_Teapot – Celestial, there are many definitions and interpretations to angels. I – personally – see them as more of a kind of guiding statue, to keep the madness at bay. The ultimate hallucination of ‘someone’ who cares when one is in the most desperate need for answers and salvation.
Much like the calculation of Pi is to mathematicians. It is the sphere of definition, the eyes seeing what they consider the most pure and the most perfect in their terrible hour of need and comfort.
In this – we see – or think we see – angels.
I recommend Emily’s post.
