    We are to understand that the first "which" should be "that," so if you're quoting something, there's a cause for distrust, that no editor has been at it.

    The Seven Seals is a Biblical reference from Revelations that together hold closed the book (or scroll) that John dreamed about in what turns out to be a vision of the apocalypse.

    He was probably overdoing the 'shrooms.  It is supposed that the first four seals have been broken, but nobody can agree on that; it seems the prediction of the End of Days has been with us as long as organised religion has.

    "The Opening of the Seventh Seal" is interesting.

    We are to understand is that John was what would now be understood to be psychotic.  And all those saints in the middle ages who were always rocking on the floor or pulling their hair out were having seizures.
