Aha, I grabbed this from an earlier post, because I could obviously not
grab it from a later post: (Laugh In reference) page number from paperback
"'If I had not died in truth, I could not have ripped open the wall
between the worlds, and the goddess could not have reached in to take
back the curse. Which was a drop of the Father's blood, as nearly as I
could tell, though how the Golden General came by such a gift I know
not. That's a metaphor, by the way.'"
Oh, and there is much more there on the subject.
Never blame on stupidity what can be attributed to greed.
