You realise that would be Downloading Communism?! Huh?thumbs up

The mathematics of the relevant cycles is creepy:
1186/1177 BC to the Fall of Rome = c. 1500 years.
Fall of Rome to our day = sheeeeiiiiiitt Eek

Annoyed me a bit when he gave the names of six Sea Peoples but said there were nine known in total and DIDN'T list them! Made me do some searching:
Peleset - Pelasgians
Tjekker - Teucri (NW Anatolia), or Siculi of Sicily
Shekelesh - Sicily again
Denye - Danaans of Greece
Weshesh - Oscans of Italy? Or from Wilusa/Ilium/Troy
Shardana - Sardinia
Meshwesh or Ma - Lybyans, a tribe later called Maxyes/Mazyes/Mazaces
Ekwesh - Achaeans
Lukka - Lycians of Asia Minor
Teresh - Tyrrhenians/Etruscans.

"And now if a whole nation fell into that? In such a case, I answer, infallibly they will return out of it. For life is no cunningly-devised deception or self deception, it is a great truth that thou art alive, that thou hast desires, necessities: neither can these subsist and satisfy themselves on delusions, but on fact. To fact, depend on it, we shall come back: to such fact, blessed or cursed, as we have wisdom for."
Thomas Carlyle

Communism? Here? I can't stand online books anyway, if it's worth it, I shall buy it.
