The Great Work, AKA The Plan Of The Ages, is a plan to restore The Prince Of This World, AKA The Perpetual Youth Of 16 Summers, to his throne as ruler
of this planet.
Shortly, a pack of howling monkeys is going to descend on this post demanding that I list my sources.
I will, as I always do, reply that I travel constantly, and I am several states away from my sources. To paraphrase an old crude saying, demand in one
hand and ( fill the other with a commonly available substance ) and see which fills up first.
One theory is that Earth was ruled by some not so very nice folks a long time ago. They were evicted after a very unpleasant battle, and can't come
back until they are invited back. To achieve the goal of being invited back, they need certain things:
All memory of their nasty past must be erased from history.
Humans need to be divided into hostile groups who fight each other, and consider each other the enemy. If They - those evil dirtbags - claim in their
history that this or that happened, it must be lies because They are such horrible people. Different countries have different histories, with less and
less overlap as time goes by. No sensible third party would believe either history to be gospel. A good way to get rid of unconvenient truths, eh?
When everyone is at everyone elses throat, and the inconvenient memories are just silly old myths, you unite the people. Give them a common enemy, an
enemy that has no allies here because it is from somewhere far far away. When all looks lost, and our squabbles here look pale and insignificant by
comparison to the external threat, give us a leader who has a workable plan to defeat the outsider enemy.
Many people who choose to believe this scenario believe the enemy will be alien invaders. I believe that IF this scenario is true, the enemy will be
an asteroid big enough to be a planet killer.
