Because they have souls?
Numbers do Not matter. more people the faster work can be done. It takes 120 years to educate a people, or un-educate them. Moses did not let the slaves just go free. They wander for forty years in the desert because slave do NOT have any Idea how to be free. So two generations were taught how to be free, FIRST. You can't let ignorant fools be free, they will die & kill. That is what was wrong when Lincoln freed other peoples property.
One liter of. Beer has 500 calories. ~1/6000 Hydrogens is Deutrium, the Deutrium in one liter of beer when turned into Helium is ~444 KWH's enough to run a 1000 Watt heater for over a year!GOLDEN VERSES OF THE PYTHAGOREANS Preparation Render to the Immortal Gods the consecrated Cult; Guard then thy Faith: Revere the Memory Of the Illustrious Heroes, of Spirits demi-gods Purification Be a goon son, just brother, spouse tender and good father. Choose for thy friend, the friend of Virtue; Yield to his Gentle Counsels, Profit by his Life, And for trifling grievance never leave him; If thou canst' at least : for a most Rigid Law Binds Power to Necessity. Still it is given thee to Fight and Overcome Thy foolish passions: learn thee to subdue them. Be sober, diligent, and chaste; avoid all wrath. In public or in secret ne'er permit thou Any evil; and above all else respect thyself. Speak not nor act before thou hast reflected. Be just. Remember that Riches and Honors Easily acquired, are easy thus to lose. As to the evils which Destiny involves, Judge them what they are; endure them all and Strive, As much as thou art able, to modify the traits: The Gods, to the most cruel, have not exposed the Sage. Even as Truth, does Error have its Lovers: With Prudence the Philosopher Approves or Blames; If Error triumph, he Departs and Waits. Keep closed thine Eye and Ear 'gainst prejudice; Of others the example fear; Think always for Thyself: Consult, Deliberate, and Freely Choose. Let fools act aimlessly and without cause. Thou shouldst, in the Present, Contemplate the Future. That which thou dost not Know; Pretend not that thou dost. Instruct thyself: for TIME and Patience Favor All. Neglect not thy Health: Dispense with Moderation, Food to the Body and to the Mind Repose. Too much Attention or too little shun; for Envy Thus, to either Excess is alike Attached. Luxury and Avarice have similar results. One must choose in all things a mean Just and Good. Perfection On the moment of Awakening, Consider Calmly What are thy Duties, and what thou shouldst Accomplish. Let not Sleep e'er close thy tired Eyes Without thou ask thyself: what have I Omitted and what Done? Abstain thou if 'tis Evil; persevere if Good. Meditate upon my Counsels; Love them; Follow them; To the Divine Virtues will they Know how to Lead thee. I swear it by the One who in our Hearts Engraved The Sacred TETRAD, Symbol Immense and Pure, Source of Nature and Model of the Gods. But before all, thy Soul to its Faithful Duty, Invoke these Gods with Fervor, they whose Aid, Thy Work begun, alone can Terminate. Instructed by them, Naught shall then Deceive thee: Of diverse Beings thou shalt sound the Essence; And thou Shalt Know the Principle and End of All If Heaven wills it, thou shalt Know that Nature, A like in Everything, is the Same in every Place: So that, as to thy True Rights Enlightened, Thine Heart shall no more Feed on Vain Desires. Thou shalt see that the Evils which Devour Men Are of their Choice the Fruit; that these Unfortunates Seek afar the Goodness whose Source within they Bear. For few Know Happiness: Playthings of the Passions, Hither, thither tossed by Adverse Waves, Upon a shoreless Sea, they Blinded roll, Unable to resist or to the Tempest yield. God! Thou couldst save them by Opening their Eyes But NO: 'tis for the Human race Divine To discern Error and to see the Truth. Nature serves them. Thou who Fathom It, O wise and Happy man, rest in its Haven. But Observe my Laws, Abstaining from the things Which thy Soul Must Fear, Distinguishing them Well; Letting Intelligence o'er the Body Reign; So that, Ascending into the Radiant Aether Midst the Immortals, Thou Shalt be Thyself a GOD.
