“So what’s it all about, then?”
“Oh, lots of things, like, duty and service, and honour, and love, and friendship, and devotion and good government, and bad…”
“Ulitmately it’s about the need to balance polarity.”
“Is that an individual polarity or a collective polarity?”
“Somewhat inevitably, it is both the polarity of an individual psyche and the polarity of a collective state.”
“And erm, do we touch upon Matriarchy and Patriarchy at all?”
“Given that brief it would be very difficult not to.”
“And we seek balance in this sphere too?”
“But of course…”
“So, how come Aruru, the Mother-Goddess, gets to wear a delicate tiara of jewelled flowers,
while Anu, the Father-God, gets a plant pot plonked on his head?”
“It’s just the nature of things.”

Enshar and Kishar, twin halves of the globe, shone out of them.
