That almost sounds like the villain you described is being used as a metaphor for 'man'. "Ashes to ashes, dust etc"; which is something I
wouldn't put past Koontz.
Recently I've been pondering the 'prison planet' concept. That maybe we're all 'aliens', (or as suggested by many faiths, 'light beings'),
serving a sentence in a realm designed to teach a lesson. "Go stand in the corner and think about what you've done." ...Or on a more positive note,
maybe we didn't do
anything, and this place is just a 'school' (not a 'prison') that we start out at (and maybe get flunked back into.)
I realize I'm digressing - I'll try to pull it back in with where I was going with this.
The 'nephilim' were supposedly hybrids between the 'sons of god' and the 'daughters of man'. 'God' wasn't pleased with this and hit the reset
button, drowning just about everyone and then somehow
making it impossible for 'angels' to materialize physical bodies in this realm, so as
to prevent their further getting busy with the fairer members of his creation.
Not to put limitations on 'God', but this has always sounded like a metaphor for some kind of technology to me. I think the ancient texts, including
the bible describe an ancient cosmic conflict and how it relates to humanity, but I believe these texts have been twisted and turned around into tools
of fear-based control.
So this hints at the concept that an experiment or project is taking place on our planet, and that actions have been taken to prevent a perhaps
disgruntled ex-contingent of the team from tampering with it.
I affectionately refer to this 'device' as the "meat-bag-materializer". And I think it was shut down, but through the 'ancients' use of
'telekinesis', 'possession' and incubus/succubus activity, they've gotten around this.
They have shared just enough of their knowledge about the universe with mankind through the ages to get us to help them create new bodies without the
MBM, and are once again able to tamper with us.
I know this is just one of those 'modernized, sci-fi enthusiast, ancient-astronaut' re-tellings of scripture, but I also believe that 'scripture'
was a modernized (at the time) re-telling of stories that were even older. And even scripture has been twisted and re-told many times since then to
make it say whatever the Pope and his ilk wanted it to say.
