From the viewpoint of the great Cosmic Beings, the Earth is a kind of purgatory, a schoolhouse where souls can learn to love in a Divine way and spread the Light that will save the planet from perpetual darkness. Our Earth is a like a spaceship, progressing through the various realms of the universe. The entire human family is travelling on this spaceship. Sagittarius teaches us that no matter what our race, culture, religion, or status in life, by virtue of being incarnated in this time and place, we are all enduring the human condition.
Imagine an alternate version of the opening as told by Ashi: Long ago in a distant land, I, Ashi, the daughter of the first shape-shifting Master of Darkness, have taken my father's place! I came from the future with a foolish samurai warrior, wielding a magic sword. I tore open a portal in time, and flung him and I into the past, where our word is now law! Now that the fool has returned to the past, we can begin to build the future that is Jack and Ashi!
