Zargonian sun-begging top . When Zargon and neighboring suns went out in eclipses and other sun-blocking events, the ancients begged their suns to return with this ceremonial top and some well-chosen incantations. Worked every time. . Please feel free to look over the images and skip the verbiage. Most developing civilizations go through a sun-worshipping phase. Indeed, astroarchaeologists estimate that sun gods and goddesses (here used interchangeably) account for 78% of all known deities. But suns can hide for hours to days at a time during solar eclipses, asteroid impacts, supervolcano explosions, and other natural sun-blocking events. Sure, your sun's always come back before, but what if it doesn't this time? ∨ So just to be on the safe side, cultures across the Galaxy have cooked up dramatic rituals begging their suns to return. Suitably decorated spinning tops often figure prominently in these ceremonies. ∧ This sun-begging top design spread from the Zargon system (below) to neighboring parts of the Delta Sector in the Edogoma Period ca. 2,800-2,000 BCE Earth time. ∨ To use it, just put on some flashy robes, spin it with great flourish, chant some catchy incantations, and wait. Works every time, and it's also good for general panhandling -- which high priests of sun gods spend a lot of time doing between outages.
