    The texts quoted above are a further example of Ezekiel's descriptive style.  [p.19] 

    Though Ezekiel was understandably excited during this first encounter, he was able nonetheless to separate reason from emotion for quite a long period of time and to observe and register objectively. But now he is completely overcome by the shock, he has no memory of the flight which lasts only a short while and which concludes the first encounter. He returns to his community, and it takes him a whole week to recover.

    The high degree of attention devoted by Ezekiel to the appearance of the spaceship during the first encounter is not repeated. The wheels alone receive a renewed thorough treatment in the description of the third encounter. However, each time, he explicitly emphasizes the identity of the newly observed spaceship with those of earlier encounters.

    The second encounter has no significance from a technical point of view. During the third encounter, however, a situation loaded with suspense is described, which by all appearances seems to have been caused by the spaceship. The very location of the action is most remarkable since the temple where it takes place is not identical with the Temple of Solomon, where it occurs according to the Bible.

    The commander has taken Ezekiel on a flight and lands his spacecraft in the inner court of the temple. Immediately after the landing he summons a ground crew. Seven men come out of a gate and align themselves before the commander. They receive orders and leave. The commander is standing in the court of the temple with Ezekiel, when one of the men returns and—in a military fashion—reports: "I have done as thou didst command me." This man is distinguished from the others by his clothes which look as though they were made of linen but which soon turn out to be a protective suit. All of them carry equipment unknown to Ezekiel. None of these men is notably different in body shape or movements from humans as they are known to him.  [p.20] 

    The action now focuses on the spaceship on which some necessary manipulations are carried out; they may even have been the reason for this landing. The commander, standing at the entrance of the temple building, orders the man to go to the spaceship and to take a position close to one of the helicopter units. The very short distance between that man and the glowing radiator of the reactor now makes the need for a protective suit understandable.

    A mechanical arm picks a red-hot component from the interior of the body of the spaceship and passes it on to the man in the protective suit, who leaves at once carrying it with him.

    By all appearances this was a critical procedure because the commander took good precautions, at least for himself: on the one hand he had taken his capsule from the spacecraft and brought it close to him by remote control, so that he could use it in case of an emergency for removing himself speedily to a safe place. On the other hand we learn that yet a second spaceship was in the vicinity. It could have picked up the commander in case of emergency.

    However, the well-prepared procedure is carried out without incident. The commander flies in the capsule back to the spaceship and starts it immediately for a short "leap" into the outer court. Ezekiel is taken to him, he receives his instructions, then watches the takeoff and the flight of the spaceship by which he had arrived, and is afterward flown back to his community by the second spaceship. Incidentally, after recovering from the shock of his first flight, Ezekiel enjoys his ensuing flights as wonderful experiences.

    A pause of some nineteen years follows. During this period, Ezekiel makes no mention whatever of any new encounters with spaceships.  [p.21]
