Once Upon a Time in a Timeless State of Mind….   Jack, the Pumpkin Headed Son of Earth, was walking up a mountain side. He strays upon a Porcupine who stands up on 2 feet and holds a wooden sign.

SIGN READS: THE SUN KING IS COMING.

Jack: The Sun King is coming, you say? Who is this Sun King, and what does he come for?

Porcupine: The Sun King is coming…the Sun King is coming…the Sun King is coming…

Jack: You are possessed or dumb?

Porcupine: If you are hungry, eat.

A flare from the Sun reaches down, kisses porcupine on the forehead, and falls him to ash – where a flower births from the pile.

Jack: (picks up sign) The Sun King is coming?

SUN KING.

Jack continues to walk his way up to the middle of the mountain and sees a Big Horned Lamb standing up on 2 feet and holding a flag.

FLAG READS: LONG LIVE THE SUN KING.

Jack: Long live the Sun King, you say? Who is this Sun King, and how long has he lived?

Big Horned Lamb: Long live the Sun King…long live the Sun King…long live the Sun King…

Jack: You are possessed or dumb?

Big Horned Lamb: If you are hungry, eat.

A flare from the Sun reaches down, kisses the Big Horned Lamb on the forehead, and falls him to ash – where a flower births from the pile.

Jack: (picks up flag) Long live the Sun King?

Jack continues his hike to the peak of the mountain and sees a Mountain Lion standing up on 2 feet and holding a banner.

BANNER READS: YOU ARE POSSESSED OR DUMB?

Jack: Am I missing something?

Mountain Lion: The Sun King is here.

Jack: Where is he?

Mountain Lion: If you are hungry, eat.

A flare from the Sun reaches down, kisses the Mountain Lion on the forehead, and falls him to ash – where a flower births from the pile.

Jack: I am hungry.

Jack picks the flower from the pile of ash, and eats of it.

Jack: I am feeling a possession coming on.

A flare from the Sun reaches down, kisses Jack on the forehead, and Jack grows and glows like The Sun.

Jack: I do not falter into ash, but I grow and glow?

The pile of ash grows the Mountain Lion back to life as a glowing lifeform.

Mountain Lion: The Sun King is here.

Jack races down to the middle of the mountain, eats the Big Horned Lamb’s flower and grows him back into a glowing lifeform.

Big Horned Lamb: Long live the Sun King.

Jack races down to the bottom of the mountain, eats the Porcupine’s flower and grows him back into a glowing lifeform, as well.

Jack: Rise from the ashes; for it is a Worldly Truth that to eat is to grow, but it is a Divine Truth that to eat of the Flower of Life is to glow like The Sun.

SUN: The Sun King is come.

Abracadabra.
