Here, I compare this figure both to the Hindu man-lion incarnation and to CS Lewis' Aslan whom I accuse of swallowing universes whereas in fact, to be more precise:
"'I have swallowed up girls and boys, women and men, kings and realms,' said the Lion."
-CS Lewis, The Silver Chair (London, 1988), p. 23.
Nevertheless, He is quite omnivorous. I suggest that, in His aspect as swallower of realms, Aslan functions not as the Biblical Lion of Judah but as cosmic Time, the All-Devouring. Gratillonius thinks of the Ultimate that is not prayed to, that is known of only by the highest ranks, and that is before and above all else forever as:
the One from Which Everything comes
Below the One but above all Gods is Ahura-Mazda Who is also called:
Ahura-Mazda creates other Gods and His commander in the war against Ahriman is Mithras. Thus perhaps there is a sort of Trinity of Time, Ahura-Mazda and Mithras.
