There has been much discussion on this forum of "the" meaning of the word Amarok, the absurd assumption being that it has one meaning - as if it were possible for a word to have just one meaning anyway.

Putting "Amarok" into a word unscrambler results in lots of possibilities, such as okra and korma - perhaps favorite foods of Mike?

Then there is "oak" and "ram" - together the title of the MICHAEL MOorcock sword and sorcery novel "The Oak and the Ram", which SF critic George Turner dismissed as "hack trash". Could it be that our MO has lowered his talents to ghost write such things? The oak is a Celtic symbol after all, and the Ram is a Zodiac sign.

love? AMOR?  :laugh:  OK

Amarok the word keeps morphing semiotically. I was reading about the Kuiper belt object Arrokoth, and it occurred to me that it sounds like "Amarok". In fact if you take "Ma" out of "Amarok" and substitute "Thor" you get "Arrokoth".  :cool:
