    in a Catholic uni, that Revelation was a rant against two specific emperors (Nero and Caligula?)

    I am an electrical engineer, run a reasonably high traffic server, and build autopilots and drones for a living. If you have technical questions, ask away and I will try to give a cogent answer.

      It was a long time ago that I'd perused the article. And it's been a long time since I read Revelation. But the depictions of some of the creatures mentioned would lend themselves well to metaphoric critique of human creatures. (Bugs with human heads? I know a few of those.)
