Dr Atkins gets to heaven

And the Angel Raphael explains to him the whole puzzling business:

bq. Time may come, when Men
With Angels may participate, and find
No inconvenient diet, nor too light fare;
And from these corporal nutriments perhaps
Your bodies may at last turn all to spirit,
Improved by tract of time, and, winged, ascend
Ethereal, as we; or may, at choice,
Here or in heavenly Paradises dwell;

(_Paradise Lost_, Book V, lines 493.5 – 500)
