Question by Ryan: Can someone recommend a good source on Mithraism?
I’m looking for a decent source on Mithraism, an ancient Roman mystery religion. I’ve found a few books on Amazon that are all extremely scholarly and fairly inaccessible to an armchair historian like me. Does anyone know of a book or other source that is a good introduction to this rather complex topic?

Question by : Can someone help me with the book the alchemist homework?
The alchemist tells Santiago, ” you don’t have to understand the desert: all you have to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and you will see in it all the marvels of creation.” With this in mind, why do you think the alchemist chose to befriend Santiago, though he knew that the Englishman was the one looking from him? What is the meaning of the two dead hawks and the falcon in the oasis? At one point the alchemist explains to Santiago the secret of successfully turning metal into gold. How does this process compare to finding a Personal Legend.

Best answer:

Answer by Caitlin
The Alchemist chose to befriend Santiago instead, because Santiago examined the desert and the people of the caravan. while the englishman had his face in his books, not bothering to contemplate the desert untill Santiago advised him to.
“He has other things to do first. But he’s on the right track. He has begun to try to understand the desert,” (114).

The 2 hawks represent the understanding of nature and what it tells us through symbols. it represents the knowledge of how the world and all of its inhabitants communicate and ultimately work together to find their personal legend.
Now the meaning of them being dead, in my opinion the alchemist sent his falcon to kill them because Santiago read their meaning. the Alchemist was pretty upset when he approached on his horse about it, saying “Who dares to read the meaning of the flight of the hawks?” (109).
So in other words, Santiago had no right to understand the omen, and to alter the future outcome of the Oasis battle.

The process of turning metal into gold compares to finding a personal legend because there’s a secret to everthing. You have to look for the cause and effect, and then pursue it to accomplish what you want. Also the Art of Patience comes into this: if you are eager to accomplish your goal, but are not willing to take the time to understand its origin and meaning, then you will never accomplish it.

Good luck!

Question by myira_shine: What non serious-injury would cause someone to slip in and out of consciousness from hitting their head?
I’m writing a story and I wanted my character to slip, fall, hit her head, and then pass out and wake up in the hospital and the doctor finds out and tells her that she’s pregnant. But I read that when you pass out, you only pass out for a few seconds up to a minute so that wouldn’t work for me because I want the doctor to have to determine whether or not my character is pregnant so that she can break the news to her.

In other words: the doctor would typically ask if the character if she is pregnant, to which she would reply ‘no’ since she has no idea that she is. But I want the doctor to be the one to have to find out that answer herself because my character would be unconscious at the time and couldn’t provide an answer on her own. And I can’t do that if she only passes out a second after she falls and then is awake once she’s casting up her wrist fracture.

So what kind of non-serious injury to the head would cause her to slip in and out of consciousness? Is it possible to just slip and hit your head hard on the floor and have that happen?

Best answer:

Answer by Plogsties
It can’t be “non-serious” if it causes loss of consciousness. Unless of course it represents a hysterical conversion reaction.

Question by Silly Jilly: How do you get over someone close to you dying? ?
How do you stop from feeling that life is completely devastating and there is no point to the evil of it all. How can you get over the loss and hurt. What is the point of this cruel and evil world that we live and then die in. Why love? When it ends in nothing but death?

Best answer:

Answer by mz t xx
the truth is you could never get over someone’s death, because life just takes them away, just like that. all you have to do is to continue life, not as if nothing happened, but throw yourself into life with more energy, so you can live for both you and the other person. the point of love? it’s the closest thing we have to magic. it’s what drives us to protect the ones we care about.
