In Latin, sator means 'sower'; it is also the first word of the most famous 5x5 alphabetic magic square in history. It also has by all reasonable consideration nothing to do with satori, that curious Zen concept that translates roughly to 'sudden enlightenment'.

Yet, the difference between sator and satori is only 'I'. Or perhaps, as St John the Evangelist puts it: "Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true." He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
