cop as well. So they're in all each one of us in a sense. The answer I had
in mind for the anarchosophical riddle is: Christ. There are three of them
in the interrogation chamber, right? One (the good cop) is Ahriman, the
other (the bad cop) is Lucifer, so the third one (the suspect) has to be
Christ. And if we remind ourselves of the scene where Christ stands before
Pilate in the very role of the suspect, and that he was actually given the
option of getting off the hook by defending himself against the charges,
the analogy becomes a little clearer.
This is something to be kept in mind by anyone involved in a judicial
process like jury duty. There is an exceøøent article by Michael E.
Coughlin about this, entitled "The Jury: Defender Or Oppressor"
