The Roman empire, paradigm of Western warrior empires, lasted 797 years, between the foundation of the Republic of ‘Iron’ after the Gaels’ invasion and the fall of Rome to stirrup barbarians in 410.
Money becomes the main engine of war, with the discovery of a metallic cycle of in-form-ation, the coin, which professionalizes ‘mercenary armies’.
It will also impose visual and digital languages over wor(l)ds, changing the mind of mankind. The dominance of the social Wor(l)d is substituted by the dominance of the individualistic I=eye: Go(l)d is now a visual language, as coins constantly provoke a ‘gold fever’, a visual fetish . . . Good and Evil, verbal values, are substituted by beauty and ugliness, which are values of visual perception, as coins are. Sowhen the Greeks translate the Bible, they say instead of ‘God saw that the world was good’, ‘that theworld was beautiful’. Greeks had introduced coins, which ended the dominance of bartering in trade (verbal, Semite traditions) and started digital accountancy. The higher complexity of coins and iron will prove irresistible. It is an expansive age for European empires that now use metal species in a far more efficient manner to exploit people, taxed in coins and levied to serve the armies of their metal masters. Systems of total war that Assyria had essayed before, now become natural to western empires. Macedonian and Roman Empires put together all the weapons discovered in the previous cycles of war (horses, iron, chariots, geometrical war, coins), creating the Mercenary Army (Phalanx, legion). This new age in which iron and mathematical languages, through coin accountancy, become dominant, is felt by prophets of the Wor(l)d as a fundamental regression of Human Ethics. The word denounces that decadence and praises social evolution and love. Such verbal reaction gives birth to the highest prophets of love of mankind (Lao, Plato, Buddha and cycles of Jewish prophets that culminate with Christ). Confucius talks of the end of the Jen Age of Human harmony. But the Hope of resurrection of the wor(l)d is short-lived. Around 400 BC, the radiation of iron reaches massive size with the great Celtic Invasions that transfer their weapons to Rome. While Epirus in the South teaches Romans the power of coins to create Mercenary Armies. Rome becomes an empire of iron, coins and mathematical war. So happens in China with the Chin and Han dynasties that unify the nation after massive massacres (6 million dead).
In the graph, Rome is the origin of all the rituals and icons of future European Warrior empires that seize power, pretending to reinstall a ‘new Rome’. Because animetal races die, but their weapons, money and rituals of trade and war continue, there is, in fact, a continuity of warrior symbols and customs, from Assur to Persia, to Macedonia, to Rome, to European empires. So much for racial superiority: the race dies in wars and Holocausts. The product, the iron weapon or the coin, stays. So Rome gave origin to European ideologies, rituals and icons of warrior civilizations from the Franks to Nazi Germany, from Imperial eagles to Lineal Art and military Architecture. Thus, Rome also continues the brutal fight for Total Power between the dominant ‘banking/Go(l)d culture’ of the West, the People of the Treasure and its dominant warrior culture (the Indo-Europeans). Indeed, Rome wants to control also money, but the millenarian know-how is on the hands of the Phoenician-Jewish coalition. So Rome, first exterminates the Phoenicians in Cartage and then tries to exterminate the ‘People of the Treasure’ in Canaan.
It is at this point when Jesus of Nazareth, Master of the Wor(l)d, tries to reform the religion of Banker-priests, preaching love and justice, but when he believes he can throw the banker-priests from the temple with his mass of r=evolutionaries, he is killed within a week by the eternal alliance of the Sword (Pilate) and Go(l)d (Caiphas, descendant of Aaron). It is a repetition of the confrontation between the spiritual father of Jesus (Moses) and the genetic father of Caiaphas (Aaron). And again Go(l)d wins over the Wor(l)d. And again the prophecies of the holocaust take place. The Romans, amidst an economical crisis, provoked by the evasion of capital on luxury trade attack the center of global trade, the Jewish Kingdom. But they fail to exterminate the banker-priests, who flee to Babylon with most of their Go(l)d, leaving behind the zealots at Masada, the lower class of believers and peddlers that diealways in the Holocausts, as Bankers move with capital to a new nation and the Sword revenges on their poor. When Titus enters the Solomon Bank/Temple, Go(l)d is gone and the revenge means the holocaust of the lower, energy class of Jewish farmers. The possession of Talmud means now death penalty.
So the ‘People of the Treasure’ converts to Christianity and the Old Testament, forbidden in earlier Christianity that had purified Judaism, back into a religion of love and ethics, is adopted again, along measures that will give exclusive banking rights to the ‘Treasure People’. It might be coincidental, but now Christianity becomes, with the new Go(l)d, the dominant culture of Rome. And so finally, the battle for cultural supremacy in Europe, between Rome and Judea, Weapons vs. Go(l)d, is won by Judaism that becomes ever since the Go(l)d culture of the Western World, at a very steep prize for its lower castes.
