Abstract

Once upon a time there was a society of priests who built a Celestial City with gates secured by word combination locks. The priests were masters of the Word and, within the City, ascending levels of power and treasure became accessible to those who could learn ascendingly intricate levels of Word Magic. At the very top level, the priests became gods; and because they then had nothing left to seek, they engaged in games with which to pass the long hours of eternity. In particular, they liked to ride their strong, sure-footed steeds around and around the perimeter of heaven: now jumping word hurdles, now playing polo with concepts of the moon and the stars, now reaching up to touch that pinnacle, that Splinter of Refined Understanding called Superunderstanding, which was the brass ring of their merry-go-round (Williams, 1991, p. 1).
