The Secret Agent - SECTION – I THE AGENT - Contd

2.  The Confused Agent:  Confuses his SELF with the body which is his first base, into which he has landed, and that is the source of all further distortion.  This first base into which he accidentally lands has its own history and peculiarities inherited and derived from animal and mental man which has for centuries been its inhabitant. 

                        As soon as a sense of alienness crops up, instead of firmly attempting to reeducate and transform it to meet the needs of his race, his kingdom, he succumbs to punishment or bribery and finally returns without much accomplishment.  Some other agents get frightened, disillusioned and fervently pray for early retirement and recall to the Motherland.  They mistake this vision to be the reformation and reorganisation of Mental Man rather than the conquest of territory for their Motherland.  This deserves the word betrayal. Some others feel that their assignment to earth was for some punishment.  There are no rewards and punishment – An agent is assigned again and again till he acquires the material necessary for this conquest of a material base.  The natives usually call the confused agent as a simple-hearted misfit, a good chap easily deceived, harmless mad fellow.  An uncalculating simplicity mistaken for Simpletonism and an unmistakable streak of compassion, often considered indiscriminate, towards all forms of life, a natural shrinking from cruelty and greed mistaken for softness and lack of prudence characterise him.

 3 (a).  The make – believe agent-
                        The characteristic is the pronounced concern for the uplift of or the reformation of mankind.

                        The characteristic is also the pronounced lack of concrete compassion often in the name of some guide or other they can commit or condone or unleash any degree and amount of cruelty.  In the name of some unknown God or Something they become Right Arm, the hidden power behind man’s laws and legal and social system.

                        For instance, the prominent agents had said and lived in a manner to show that sex is not the agents way, or conducive to the transformation requirements.  The race from which they have come does not have sex as a source of procreation or satisfaction.  That, however, happens to be a most important component of the material base which they occupy for transformation into a territory more suitable for the occupation.  However, in their life they had been most compassionate to the worst sinners in this regard.

                        A guide called Ramana Maharishi put the matter clearly.  Someone asked him how to avoid Sin.  The Maharishi simply replied `Man is Sin’.

                        Righteous anger is the chief characteristic of the fake-guides.

                        The agent who has fully recognised his identity is solely concerned with the loyalty to his race and its guides rather than with the arrangements of the natives.

3 (b).  Another category of fake agents is:
                        Miracle – mongers, Singers of praises of the guides and black-magic workers and so on.

                        An agent may or may not do any of these things.
