Yes Virginia, Santa Claus is Coming Tonight
All of this wisdom about the central axis of the galaxy has been found and lost many times. What has happened over the last forty thousand years of history, for which we have archaeological records, is the cyclical rise and fall of civilization. Each time the cosmic egg was created, it was placed high upon the wall, or pillar of the galaxy, as a great ideal. But from this position great ideals can fall to the whims of skeptics and cynics, and also, the overly righteous. The legend of the creative rise and cynical fall of the cosmic wisdom has been recorded in a nursery rhyme about an egg. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty together again.
Can you see Humpty Dumpty sitting on the great cosmic wall? He is Cepheus the king. He moves from the west to the east side of the wall as Cassiopeia, and falls to the bottom as Andromeda. Lying flat on his back, he is the Sculptor at the very bottom of the cosmos. And his future goose is cooked at the furnace. Well that certainly would not be a good story to tell at Christmas time. Will Santa Claus be able to put Humpty Dumpty together again? If horses and king's men could not do it, maybe the wisdom of children can. Lets go looking for the story about Santa Claus, and see if we can put Humpty Dumpty together again with the help of Santa Claus, a.k.a. Odin, Hertha, Ptah, and Humpty Dumpty. Get your needle ready, this is the fun part.
