Although he is a minor character in the Iliad, Aeneas is better known for his role in founding what would eventually become Ancient Rome, which is described in the Aeneid. The son of the goddess Aphrodite and Anchises, a mortal man, Aeneas was given a task by the gods to found a new Troy after the old one’s destruction at the hands of the Greeks. Aeneas set out with his young son, his elderly father, and anyone who wished to join him on this quest. Although there were many setbacks and stops along the way, Aeneas successfully reached the mouth of the river Tiber and after a war with the locals, he married the local king’s daughter as a display of a budding alliance and eventually founded a city called Lavinium. Aeneas is often named as the first true hero of the Romans.

Belief, like fear or love, is forced to be understood as we understand the Theory of Relativty and Principles of Uncertainty: phenomena that determine the course of our lives.
Yesterday, my life was heading in one direction; today, it is headed in another. Yesterday, I believed I would never have done what I’ve done today. These forces that often remake time and space, that can shape and alter who we imagine ourselves to be, begin long before we are born and continue after we perish. Our lives and our choices, like quantum trajectories, are understood moment to moment. At each point of intersection, each encounter suggests a new potential direction.

“Enough bullshit! Anything else you want to tell me now? Because I will see it sooner or later. I had to go blind to see things about you I couldn’t see before. A bad cosmic joke.” -Cordelia Foxx
