Let us write the history of the world without being clever.
There are no movers and shakers in history; that is a lie, an opiate, to give men a false and misguided sense of immortality.
Common men created the world.
They lived and died.
They spoke languages that have no official form nor grammar.
They raised animals, grew crops, and ate food that have no names, no nomenclature, and no taxonomy.
Men and women moved fluently and freely over borders in order to survive.
Their movements, their associations have no labels.
There was only a continuous exchange of elements and information.
Their unwritten and unclassified experience is the prime straw that stirs the drink.
They are a mass of hydroxy-carbonated goo moving over earth’s terrain, destroying, assimilating, and rebuilding.
False prophets arose to capture that experience, store it, repackage it, give it approved form, then sell it back to the common man in order to dominate him.
These men were known as academics. They placed this bottled experience in buildings called libraries and museums.
These men redefined human experience.
They invented heroes and so-called movers and shakers.
They invented a false etiquette.
They defined certain experiences as more valid.
These academics, their libraries, their museums are false prophets and false gods.
Leonardo da Vinci and his Mona Lisa are but two products of these false prophets; these products exist to empower the academic and by extension the kings and queens who control the academic.
People, young and old, are instructed by the academic that these two experiences, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Mona Lisa, are supreme and therefore immortal.
By extension the designators of these pieces of immortality must therefore be immortal.
Yet these designators, these opinion makers, are not immortal, nor are the products, the art, the music, the writings , the heroes, the movers and shakers they designate.
They’re only part of the continuum of the efforts of the common man.
There is no Caesar.
There is no Alexander.
There is no Leonardo da Vinci.
They are manifestations of an opiate haze created by academics and the false kings and queens who in turn control those academics.
The great man of history does not exist.
There is only anonymous man toiling away, growing crops, raising animals, eating food, building shelter for himself, trying to survive another day, until the day he dies.
Therein lies true immortality.
