 Angels and Demons
Angels and demons, whatever they are or represent, are not themselves ch'i and sha: rather, they are the forces which produce the respective balance of ch'i and the imbalance of sha.
The demons play other games, more suitable to their apparent aim as 'forces tending to unbalance': they issue sequences of unerringly accurate prophecies about private and public events, and then, as John Keel put it, "when (the contactees) are totally sold, they introduce a joker into the deck".
Angels and demons, as I see it, are aspects of the primal forces of nature, so the intelligence for which they act as messengers is nature itself, in its constructive and destructive aspects.

Another group of angels is called "cherubim." Seemingly, cherabim were present to cover the very holiness of God Himself, and on the lid of the ark of the covenant their wings formed the throne for the presence of the Lord (see Exodus 25:18-22).
Angels are magnificent creatures, not at all like the tiny, childlike cherubs that we see in some Renaissance art.

 Book Review - Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
Angels & Demons introduces the character of Robert Langdon, professor of religious iconology and art history at Harvard University.
In some ways, Angels & Demons has a more suspenseful storyline with the antimatter bomb and the race to prevent the destruction of Vatican City.
Both share a hired assassin, a tough and beautiful woman as Langdon's sidekick who's mourning the murder of a loved one, and mysteries that require extensive knowledge of art history, religious symbology, and secret societies.

"American tourists asked us about 'Angels and Demons'" and where the different churches in the novel were, "so we did it, we started a tour," said Simone Gozzi, president of the cultural association Dark Rome, which organizes the official "Angels and Demons" Rome Tour.
The "Angels and Demons" Rome Tour brings visitors to those masterpieces, ranging from Bernini's more obscure "Habakkuk and the Angel" in the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo to the towering Fountain of the Four Rivers in Piazza Navona.
The four-hour "Angels and Demons" tour run by Gozzi is priced, for now, between $61 and $272, depending on group size.

The demons were pointing sharp, potentially lethal objects in the direction of at least one of his friends (and part of Spike's brain still stuttered in reluctance over his use of such a word in respect to a watcher, even a rebel one).
The fact that one of the demons seemed intent on bowing down to possibly literally kiss the feet of Madame Glowy-Arse, who was largely responsible for the headache that was contributing to the vampire's less than pleasant mood, in no way improved matters.
Even as Bee opened her mouth to speak in a language that sounded like it belonged in a middle-eastern bazaar, but which matched no tongue of which Spike was aware, the vampire clenched and unclenched his fists, tightening his grip on the heavy sword he carried.

 In the Hands of Alchemy: Angels and Demons
These panel paintings were the last of a series of paintings I had done before destroying my art and letting go of my identity as an artist in 1979.
These images are all that remain of some final dialogue-- remnants of longing fulfilled in the unexpected possibility of complete surrender.
There were over 80 of these paintings, which I called “Angels and Demons.” The panels were human scale, 6 x 1-foot, and there was an image painted on both sides of the panel.

I liked the plot of Angels and Demons and found much of middle section wonderfully absorbing and tense, as Robert and Vittoria decipher ancient clues and race from place to place in Rome, fast on the heels of a murderer.
In spite of the weaknesses, Angels and Demons is very exciting and at times, even spine-tingling.

 ASCC Faith Essentials
Even though we use the term ‘angel’ to designate the beings in question, so that an angel can be either good or bad, the term itself is derived from the Greek angelos, which means ‘messenger’ and hence in its origin designates the role of the good angels.
This leads to a certain amount of confusion, since we sometimes use ‘angel’ with a positive connotation (as in “She is on the side of the angels”) and sometimes without such a connotation (as in “Lucifer is a fallen angel”).
Third, if angels have some relation to places and to bodily things, then this relation is unlike anything else we know—with the possible exception of the very strange behavior attributed to the fundamental particles described by contemporary quantum physicists.
