SON OF THE SUN: as related by Thor Heyerdahl, the writer who made the raft and saile dit from Peru to soem Polynesian islands in the late 1940s, Kon-Tiki was the name of either a Peruvian or Polynesian creator/god. His name translates as "son of the sun," meaning being a descendant of the sun itself. With Lucas coming up with that "Son of the Suns" aspect to the Journal of the Whills idea he had, perhaps that was its origin.
