  • The laboratory in Yetzirah. 'Imperfect' angels are used as living lab-rats and kept awake and conscious constantly to observe their nerve-reactions to all the experimenting.

  • The idea that God doesn't love us and created us only as an experiment.

  • Heaven and Hell are just as corrupted and terrible as Earth. Heaven as humans imagined it is a mirage.
  • What happens to an angel once its wings get cut off.
