August 13th 1944- German physicist Franz von Papen was doing experiments in his Berlin laboratory with sound.

His thesis: He was going to try to see if he could use sound to split the atom.

If he could, then the Reich would have no need for uranium or heavy water cooling plants to produce an atomic bomb.

What would produce this sound that would split the atom?

Von Papen had in front of him a Western musically inscribed transcript of the melody of A Hymn To Chaos that had been sung in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery for thousands of years.

And the musical instrument he’d use to produce the sound of music of this Hymn To Chaos?

After much research on the subject, he decided on the theremin.

The theremin invented by Russian inventor Leon Theremin in 1920.

Von Papen excitedly opened the box containing the theremin.

It was empty.

The seller of musical instruments had forgotten to pack the instrument.

The physicist angrily got on the phone to the instrument seller.

August 17th 1944- The theremin had finally arrived.

Quickly von Papen put down his music notes (the western inscribed musical transcript of the Tibetan Buddhist Hymn To Chaos) and started playing the theremin.

To his shock, a small image of the Hindu deity Shiva appeared in the room and started dancing.

Von Papen stopped playing the theremin and the image stopped dancing and disappeared.

Von Papen now had something he could show the Fuhrer.

Von Papen wrote down some notes and mailed them to a distant cousin of his.

He then got on the phone to the Office of The Fuhrer- a phone that had been tapped by MI6.

Von Papen was immediately invited to the Fuhrer’s office that night to demonstrate what he had discovered.

As Von Papen left his laboratory that afternoon, he was promptly assassinated by an operative operating for MI6 in Berlin.

. , .

Vatican Cardinal Walter Kasper had been contacted by the United States government.

They were anxious to get a score of musical notes that had been in the possession of a relative of his- a musicologist.

The musicologist had left the notes to his young relative Walter when he heard that Walter was entering the priesthood.

He felt that the notes would be safe with a priest.

Kasper had never bothered to read the notes.

He was surprised when the U.S. government offered him money for them.

The U.S. State Department had told him that the notes were for the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.

Kasper would not take the money for himself (Pope Francis frowned on such things!) but he told the State Department to give the money to his favourite charity.

The Cardinal sat in a Roman cafe waiting for the U.S. government representative to show up.

Out of nowhere suddenly appeared in front of him a man with a goatee beard wearing a mink fur hat on his head and Hawaiian shorts showing very hairy legs.

The man resembled images and pictures he had seen of the Greek satyr god Pan.

“Here’s the money for your favourite charity, your Eminence,” Pan Goatee put a briefcase on the table.

“I’ve got my distant relative’s musical scores right here,” the Cardinal reached down for his portfolio case.

It was gone.

As Pan Goatee and the Cardinal looked around for signs of the portfolio attache case, a hamster was seen scurrying down the streets of Rome carrying a portfolio attache case.

. . .

In a hotel room in Rome as Renfield R. Renfield was getting a massage from a young masseuse who was a deadringer for the young Sophia Loren as she would have appeared in movies of the 1950s and ’60s, he was on the phone.

“Yes,” said Renfield, “I have the attache case.”
