>What does "unpacking the great planes, ransacking the great planes"
>(J 1.1) mean?

under "plane" in the Collins Concise are various meanings
 one is: "a flat/level surface"
 another is: "plane tree"

I imagine 'unpacking' means that the wind is blowing out the contents
of the planes.

Staying with that first section, why does D. mention Arcturus?
("snatched every night from the darkness by Arcturus ") I only know
that this is the brightest star (a red giant) in Boötes, and the name
comes from "arktos" (bear) and "ouros" (guard). But can anyone make
any sense in any of this?
