this steely light comes from the borders of the small country ao-lai, that lies east of the holy continent and the mountain of flowers and fruit.  on this mountain is a magic rock that gave birth to an egg that hatched a stone monkey.  and when he made his bow to the four quarters a steely light flashed from his eyes with a beam that reached the palace of the polestar.  of the light, the jade emperor said, "these creatures in the world below, were compounded of the essence of heaven and earth.  NOTHING that goes on there should surprise us.  

what could be the explanation of this strange thing that's happening?
