If you’re a B5 fan, you recognize this.
It’s supposedly from an “Egyptian prayer.”
It (ultimately) came from a Harlan Ellison short story, IIRC.
My question: What is Ellison’s source, or did he just make it up for his story, and Straczynski (sp?) just thought it sounded good and used it?
That is, is it really from some Egyptian source?
