The Living Force
Probably the same applies to all those stories about homosexuality or bisexuality of Caesar.Laura said:Q: (L) So anyhow, as I was saying, he wrote The Gallic Wars. In The Gallic Wars, it's really a conundrum, because you see this incredible shining spirit on the one hand, and then you read of these incredible acts of barbarity on the other hand. But the thing is, the only reports that we know of about most of what's in The Gallic Wars is what Caesar "wrote". So, let me ask...
(Pierre) Did he exaggerate the number of casualties to impress the people in Rome?
A: Not only! Others added to this later to increase the horror factor. Notice that his closest friend was a Gaul from Spain. Also notice the extraordinary honor in which he was held in Gaul for centuries after his death. Also notice the very fact that the legend of a great soul come down to earth!
Also the literary character of Jesus has several aspects of be "gay". Perhaps these aspects are due to the need to steal (by the elite) the female rol in the state religion as priestesses. The Vestals were replaced by male priests of the church, with their feminine characteristics.
And today, maybe "American" does not necessarily mean from or in the United States. If the name of our civilization is America, will hit hard in all parts of the world when it falls. As Atlantis, or to a lesser extent, Babylon or Rome.Laura said:Q: (L) And they were like mistresses or something?
Q: (L) Were those the only three?
A: No, but others had no long term relationship. Also understand that "Roman" does not necessarily mean "from or in Rome" or even Italy. Many Gauls were "Roman".
