I came up with Ormus King 7 (then 6) while camping at the Goldsborough Valley campground in September 2019. I never planned on it happening.
This area was (and still is) an ancient aboriginal tribal meeting point. I’m not surprised.
I would wake up with very powerful visions for the story when the night before I had no idea what to imagine or write — too much information to process.
I doubt I could have come up with this story – which sees the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem anywhere else – even in Jerusalem itself. I lived in Jerusalem from 2010 – 2018 and came up with Ormus King 1 + 2 in 2017.
The power and significance of this place owes to its closeness to Walsh’s Pyramid, the world’s highest natural freestanding pyramid and also Bellenden Ker and Bartle Frere – Queensland’s highest mountains. It also sits next to the Mulgrave River. But who knows, maybe those things came after its significance was determined somehow.
Another way to look at the area is as a natural anti-depressant.
The area is not remote however. In Far North Queensland, mountains and national parks are intertwined into the city areas.
As I headed into October, the March flies arrived and were simply unbearable – much worse than mosquitoes because of their painful bite and they attack a moving target.
The devil lurks
During the writing of this story, I encountered (and reported) a shoplifter at Jay Car in Cairns, a 45 min drive away – and that made me think – perhaps my story was (and still is) being used (ie stolen) somehow? Time will tell.
September 12 Update:
Ormus King 7 was precipitated by thinking about bible stories whilst on the road in Queensland and then applying them to modern-day environments starting on 26 July, 2019:

and then completing the main story on 29 October, 2019:
This twitter account led to the story (now offline) that answers the Amidah better than anything I've yet seen. Imagination is more important than news!

Interestingly, Pharrell Williams (with Deadmau5) has his own musical take on the creation myth and the Tree of Knowledge as mentioned in this interview (9 June, 2020) resulting in the song Pomegranate:
Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol of righteousness because it is said to have 613 seeds, which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot, or commandments, of the Torah. ~ source
