The role of serpent is supplied by the character of Strangman, who like Hardoon in The Wind from Nowhere is an embodiment of ego-mind at its most unprincipled and most vicious. It is his demonic power which must be overcome before the return to paradise can be accomplished. Strangman and his crew constitute a cult of death, cruelty, and greed, in every way antithetical to the quest for the archaeopsychic sun and all that it represents.
