The person initiating the ritual chose several people with particular qualities to be a part of the scene. I was chosen "because of my resonance with the sun, Zeus, mercury (dunno if the god, the planet or the metal was meant by that)" and possibly the liver and Apollo(you know how dreams are).
Just out of curiosity, is anyone out there familiar with symbol systems that link those things?
(Yeah, I know Apollo is the sun god. Besides that?)
