Quote:Construct: An energetic thinger of an individual's creation programmed to be and/or do one or more somethings. Can be programmed for whatever purposes its creator desires.
Angel: An energetic being created by a higher power for whatever purpose or to serve a certain role.
So are angels just constructs of the divine?
No. A construct is a mindless automaton, without any possibility left of self-reflection or so. Angels have a purpose, something that gives them a kind of meaning, a higher one, maybe. We (I am one) have more possibilities of free and own actions then an automaton or a construct.
Quote:Here are my thoughts...angels have free will, while constructs can do only what they are told and be only what they are created to be. Though angels are created for a purpose, they may choose to deny that purpose and/or carry it out how they see fit. A construct can do a task how it is told to do it.
Exactly. There is the difference.
Quote:Some people have said that a construct can be programmed to evolve. If that's possible than couldn't it also be programmed to have free will? If it was programmed as such would it still be a construct?
Well, there is - to my knowledge - none construct (computer directed robot) that have this kind of programm in itself. Humans are similar: They have hardwired in their brain that it learns. To program a robot to have free will, there have to be a consciousness first. Otherwise the program simply runs algorhythms. Without consciousness there are no free decisions. Using a true random generator does not solve this problem.
Quote:Are constructs limited to the energy they are created with? Angels are connected to the universal energy, but constructs can only make do with the energy they are given in their creation...unless they are programmed to function parasitically.
Depends. Constructs, robots, can be constructed in a way that they can sustain themselves by certain methods of energy-gaining.
Quote:Are angels made of a different "type" of energy? I personally believe that angels are (and energy beings in general) are of a different sort of energy than the ambient energy of earth. That they are made of universal energy of the source...divine energy so to speak. So to me a construct is made of a different variety of energy than an angel.
In my own perception the energy of an angel is nothing that can be compared with the concepts of energy usually known in physics.
Quote:All in all, I do feel that constructs have many things in common with angels...but I do not feel that they are the same. So what are your thoughts?
Constructs are too limited in their freedom. They do not have consciousness. Something that angels have. Constructs have no soul.
If some people really see angels where others see only empty space, let them paint the angels. (John Ruskin, 1819 - 1900, english critic and writer)
