Among the many sons of Euka there arose many kingdoms
Among these kingdoms three were the greatest: the Kingdom of Plantus, the kingdom of Mygus, and the Kingdom of Metazo. The three great houses that ruled them were proud of the glory they achieved. Alongside the lesser kingdoms of Kelpus, Mygaster, Monothalameus, and Gromius.
The scions of these houses built their own cities. Forming entire kingdoms with their cities.
The sons of Metazo and Anima came to be known as animals
The sons of Mygus and Funga came to be known as fungi
The sons of Plantus and Virita came to be known as plants
Metazo and Anima founded the Animal kingdom. They built a small city on a rock
Among their citizens were the Choanocytes, the great endodermal men, The Archaeocytes, the great mesodermal women, and the Pinacocytes, the great ectodermal people
Metazo and Anima begat Therion
Therion begat Porifer and Thallus and Cloudi
Thallus became the ancestor of the great geometric ones
Those who attached themselves with holdfasts and had Choanoderms extending in every which way
Cloudi extended his ectoderm up with him
The mysterious cities of Namacalathus son of Cloudi we will never know their secrets
Porifer was the first sponge. He made his ectoderm his protector with patches of sheltered choanocytes.
Porifer begat Wallas
Wallas lived his life like his father, but he soon saw danger ahead
A storm was approaching.
And so Wallas ordered his shieldmaidens to pull on their pseudopods as much as they could around the pores.
These shieldmaidens became the first muscles. These pores would later become our mouths and anuses
Wallas begat Solenos
Solenos sent his holes through his city and they sent water through, so he collected more fish and how city prospered
Solenos begat Leucon and Sponga
Leucon and Sponga begat Vitrius and Spongius
Leucon son of Solenos went a step further, he was a Leuconoid sponge. He filled his entire city with a labyrinth of gates and fishermen. His city grew massive. The sons of Leucon built cities of countless forms
The eldest son of Leucon was named Vitrius. Vitrius threw a stone at Leucon and killed him, before claiming the throne for himself. He built a great glass house as a symbol of his power, and forced the peasants to work themselves to death for him, he even merged them into a hive mind. When his younger brother Spongius asked him why he killed his father he had one response “Leucon was a tyrant, he worked the people to death to create his canals”, then he ran into his house of glass and said to Spongius “I am invincible and just, for the will of God is on my side and the people love me”. Spongius threw a stone at Vitrius, it broke through his glass house and killed him instantly, then calmly over the corpse of Vitrius Spongius said “people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”. To this day we continue to quote Spongius whenever someone demonstrates hubris like Vitrius.
The sons of Vitrius became the glass sponges, forming isolated communities on the fringes of the known world.
Spongius ruled justly and kindly to the people. His two legitimate sons: Aristos and Demos would create their own cities.
Demos ruled efficiently yet conservatively. Most sponges of the world are descended from Demos.
Among them were the great green sons of Spongillus who farm everywhere. They even farm in Siberia, the great lake Baikal that freezes over every year under the sign of Scorpio
Alongside them are the great hunter sponges, the sons of Chondrocles
Aristos had a creative block while he built his city, but then he was behexed by Hecate.
Hecate was a great Hexenmaiden
She begat a great Hex
A Hex, a Hox, a Homeobox
And by her Hox Aristos found direction in life
In Pennsylvania the daughters of Hecate have been making Hox signs for centuries, to mark the bilateral symmettry of their buildings and bring order to the cosmos. We continue their tradition in our own homes and temples
With their Homeobox Aristos and Hecate faced the direction of God
To Aegis-bearing Jehovah, All-Knowing Mithra, All-loving Elohim
Their city was pointed in the sacred direction, best to catch currents.
But alas the currents shifted, and so they moved it with muscles
And so bilateral symmetry came to be and life found direction
