"By now. Any moment. Part B of this story. Harada praises sakurai is probably the only one who could properly make smash brothers. This comes from Kat Bailey, the homie at IGN. Technical is no stranger to Super Smash brothers creator about the hero sakurai. After all sakurai was a regular site at bandai namco, which played a large role in developing smash ultimates and smash wi. Towards the end of smash Bros development harada and sakurai worked together on adding kazuya as a smash brothers DLC character, asked whether he gained any insight from the experience for tech and 8, harada used the opportunity to praise saccharide calling it quite a shock. Quote, we knew quite well what to expect and his personality. And even that said, we were also surprised when it came time to make kazuya for smash brothers because we thought since we're the experts at tech and maybe he was going to ask about the points he needed to definitely get right to make it feel like tech and but actually that wasn't the case. He already had his own thoughts about what makes tekken tekken. So it was surprising, but also refreshing to see that he came in and didn't ask questions, but said, I've played a lot of tech and studied it. And this is what I feel is important for the game. Right off the bat, so that was quite a shock. I mean in a positive way. Herodotus says that the experience left him feeling as if saccharide was the only one qualified to make smash brothers. A sentiment that saccharide himself has shared at points to spike concerns for his health amid a grueling schedule. Quote, it made us think that he has all these characters from other different franchises and games and smash brothers. So to know so much to a deep extent about all these different IPs to be able to do that, he's probably the only one that could properly make that game. Hell yeah. Now, Tim, before we go on this conversation, I need to look to bear and ask what do we need to do anything for the Internet has happened? No, it wasn't even Internet YouTube just sometimes it's just like, oh, I'm not going to connect to OBS anymore. And so I stopped streaming from OBS started streaming and we're back up, so it's fine. Okay. Did we lose any of that? Do we need to read? I don't know. That's up to the chat to tell me of what was lost there. So we might need to talk about the story. Because if the end YouTube product slash podcast product, misses out on the middle of the news story. Basically the whole thing is hirata being like, we came to sakurai with to bring kasia into smash. And sakurai, and we were like, okay, cool. We'll tell sakurai all about tech and what makes tec and tech in. And once they came to sacrifice, sakurai was basically like, hey, I've studied tekken. I've been playing tech in. This is what I think makes tech and tech in. And he basically nailed it. And they're like, fuck, this guy knows his shit. Which is the dope school. The coolest story ever. Saccharides dope as fuck, man. He's dope as fucking. We knew it, right? We've known it now for a very long time, but every single time he did the mister saccharide presents. Like, I wanted to be there. Even once I missed that, I didn't wake up at 5 a.m. to watch. I would go back and later watch them of him breaking down the characters. Even when they were characters, I didn't care that much about because he has just such a vast knowledge interest and passion in the history of video games and what makes them unique and special and like him talking about the feel of tech and it's like, how often do we talk about the feel of games? And it's funny because we talk about we mean you specifically often talk about it about the feel of smash brothers. I love that sakurai has created this game in this world where it has its own feel and then he also wants to respect the feel of the characters that he's bringing into it. So anyway, super great. Love that stuff. It shows in the final product. Like when you play as kazia in smash, he feels like hazy, right? When you play as Ryu and smash, he feels like Reed. When you play as Mario and smash, like when you're jumping and you hear the point, there's so much attention to detail and smash that it's ridiculous and I believe I honestly I believe paratha and I believe because I think saccharin might have mentioned this before that I don't know if there's anybody besides me that can make this game and harada kinda echoing down and being like, yeah, I don't know smash is smashed because of saccharide. At this point I believe it and I'm so curious slash scared of where this franchise goes. When sakurai finally decides that, hey, I'm packing up here. Like my time here is done. Yeah. A couple more details coming from Nigel on Twitter about tekken 7. Tekken 7 is close to 10 million sold units, open minded when it comes to guest characters, hirata is. He keeps an eye on project LT to do its possible impact on fighting games and he's a huge PC gamer and builds his own. So there you go. Cool. Yeah, shout out to IGN cat Bailey cat Bailey has a huge interview that she did with harada that she published over there. So here is that I didn't even have time to read it before this KFD. I had to find the write ups and find the summations, but all of this is coming from her interview with harada. And there's a lot of fascinating stuff there. And so yeah, technically, close to selling 10 million units, that's huge. That's pretty good.

"My podcast guest today, Danny namu interesting guy, we took a little while to get into the groove in terms of me kind of reeling him into some of the things I really wanted to touch on and so stick with this podcast. It gets super interesting as we go on and on but do the guy can definitely talk. So bear with them as we move along. You know, what got me interested in interviewing Danny in the first place was I was doing some research for some articles. I was working on and I came across an article by him called how the high priest got high. Cannabis and other drugs amongst the ancient Israelites. Well, I thought it was super interesting. Just to give you a little bit of a flavor of what we're going to talk about. And I think this will help you better understand or get to talk about is in that particular short article and I'll link to that and everything that Danny and I talk about if you go to Ben Greenfield fitness dot com slash Nemo that's been grateful fitness dot com slash and EMU that's Danny's last name. Danny had this to say. Cannabis residues have been identified on the altar of a Judah hi shrine in Israel, dating from the 8th century BC, according to the Tel Aviv institute of archeology. And then Danny sites a relatively recent article, meaning several well, I guess it was kind of like mid 2020 that this article came out. And he goes on to say, this is not the first time that the cannabis has been found in the area. In 1993, archeologists found cannabis out of burial two near Jerusalem informed suggesting medical application by both fumigation, fumigation means like breathing it in. And oil massage into the skin. Another dig in Egypt found cannabis pollen on the mummy of Ramsay's two, confirming the plant was used in the religious rights of the Egyptians, and also the cannabis has been transported along trade routes that pass through Palestine for many millennia. We also know them from ancient papyri that cannabis oil was used in both the medicine and magic of Egypt. Though it is difficult to make positive identifications for many plants in the Bible, the evidence has convinced rabbis ministers, linguists, archeologists, anthropologists, botanists, and others that the resin, the Bible called kana bosom is what we call cannabis. It appears to be the same as the canvas that appears in an account by herodotus from the 6th century BC burned by the scythians after they sealed down the flaps of their tents. Herodotus says immediately it smokes. It gives out such a vapor as no grecian vapor bath can exceed the scythe, the sis delighted shout for joy. Well, despite a massive amount of literary evidence assembled by a guy named Chris Bennett and others, the idea that ancient Israelis used one of the most interesting and useful plants on the planet remains controversial. This is a testament to the conservatism and entitlement of many of the people who claim to be interested in the Bible where it agrees with their politics, at least, but it need not concern us here. What is more surprising is the technology and deep understanding of pharmacology that the ancient apocalypse apothecaries brought to their drug culture..

"Generally with tools and implements that were not designed for that purpose Wait it sounds like you've got a specific tool in mind or they like using a food processor blade or what Well one was definitely there was a guy that was telling me what you need to do is you need to get yourself a safety razor and then remove some of the safety features And then you can just scrape away some skin Which sounds like a bad idea and I do not recommend anyone do that Another person said what you need to do is you need to get one of these and he held up a what do you call these The grading of say Ginger for culinary purposes Explain Yes the microplane So he held microplane He says you can get one of these at Bed Bath & Beyond It works great Again I would not recommend using that on your body I would recommend getting a sanding or scrubbing implement that is designed for use on the skin and use on the feet What you do is you get a stick blender and oh man But that's not to say that other folks weren't engaging in the use of essentially chemical approaches to the cleaning of the skin The ancient Egyptians made use of soda to clean their skin as well as to treat diseases of the skin Okay so soda is interesting here because that suggests we're getting a little bit closer to soap like territories This will make more sense when we explain soap and a bit but soda of course is an alkali It's a base And in certain combinations in the presence of fats and water this can actually have a lathering soap like effect Yeah So this is a nice ancient example We'll get into some more in a bit But another example that wrote that all point out 5th century BC during this time period herodotus wrote of the priest physicians of the temple of amun at karnak at Egypt during the reign of rameses this would have been 1113 through ten 85 BCE and herodotus stated that they would quote bathe in cold water twice a day and twice a night and cleansed their.

"Tools and implements that were not designed for that purpose. Oh, wait. It sounds like you've got a specific tool in mind. Are they like using a food processor blade or what? Well, one was definitely there is a guy that was telling me what you need to do is you need to get yourself a safety razor and then remove some of the safety features and you can just sleep. Yes, you know, scrape away some skin. Uh, which sounds like a bad idea, and I do not recommend anyone do that. Another person said. What you need to do is you need to get one of these. And he held up. Um Oh, What's the What do you call these? It's the for the grading of, say, Ginger for culinary purposes. Micro plane? Yes, The micro plane, So he held microphone? No, he says you can get one of these at bed Bath and beyond. It works great. Uh, again, I would not recommend using that on your body. I would recommend getting a sanding or scrubbing implement that is designed for use on the skin and use on the feet. What you do is you get a stick Blender and Oh, man, But that's not to say that other folks weren't engaging in the use of essentially chemical approaches to the cleaning of the skin. The ancient Egyptians made use of soda to clean their skin as well as to treat diseases of the skin. Okay, so sodas interesting here because that suggests we're getting a little bit closer to soap like territories. This will make more sense when we Explain so open a bit. But soda, of course, is an alkali. It's It's a base and in certain combinations in the presence of fats and water, this can actually have a lathering soap like effect. Yeah, so so this is a nice ancient example. We'll get into some more in a bit. But then another example that growth at all point point out fifth century BC during this time period, Herodotus wrote of the priest, Physicians of the Temple of Amun. At Karnak in Egypt during the reign of Ramesses, This would have been, uh 11 13 through 10 85 bc and Herodotus stated that they would quote, bathe in cold water twice a day and twice a night and cleansed their mouths with neutron.

"Paradise free from war sickness famine and conflict. Its residents could live for more than a thousand years. Whenever they wanted to move on from their current life they jump into a magical lake and emerge as swans in makes for a lovely story. But it's clearly not true there. No historical records of a place called hyper bore area and we all know that greek mythology is more fiction than fact but references to the fountain of youth aren't only found in mitts in the four hundred bc e herodotus often credited as the first greek historian wrote in allegedly true story about a group of spies who infiltrated kingdom in ethiopia known as the macro beans when the spies show up they noticed that all the microbials look young and fit and healthy. Even the ones who are more than a hundred years old for whatever reason the microbial king eventually decides to show the spies the secret to their youthful vigor. He leads them to this majestic fountain. Where all his people bake it smells like violets and emerges with their skin looking shiny and supple herodotus never calls it the fountain of youth but that seems to be what it is now. Obviously herodotus was hearing this story secondhand and other ancient historians even criticized him for not fact checking the folk legends that sometimes appear in his accounts but a lot of what the guy wrote is confirmed to be true. So we can't dismiss the story entirely and really. The account doesn't seem that far fetched. I mean floral fragrant water that keeps skin looking healthy.

"Important in the culture of egypt the magic now magic as we descended today new think magicians on stages do electric's magic lose pot of the very fabric of the way in which the egyptians undestood the will in which they lived they would fr is the would they had a god that was also called god hecker and it was all to do with this idea of magic and egyptologist of set things like that heckle magic. Who's as much a matter of course as sleep. While the preparation of food came into every single aspect of their lives. They believed that anything in this world was as the result of what they called magic so he mentioned that they had a god cold hecker. There's an egyptologist geraldine pension. She writes hecker could be identified with the creator himself particularly when the latter in child phone to symbolize the emergence of new life. Hackers also described as the baa which means the solo manifestation of the sun. God and she says that this god hecker was the energy with which a will which made creation possible and every act of magic was a continuation of the creative process so kind of like a similar thing to the power of god the holy spirit as we call it that was their understanding of hecker and the magicians with the ones who would the the medium in egypt religious rituals through which hecker was manifest. Now there's something else about the magicians which is interesting. They wouldn't just the priests who administered the power of the power of magic. They were also physicians with the doctors. They were the ones who made sure that disease was kept at bay and they were absolutely obsessed with cleanliness and hygiene. This is what the historian herodotus says. They are religious beyond measure all than any other people and the following. Are that customers. They drink from cups of brown's which they clean up daily this is not by some by all their especially careful always to a newly washed linen the practice circumcision for cleanliness sake for they would rather be cleaned becoming the priests shave the whole body every other day so that no lice or anything else.

"herodotus" Discussed on Making Sense with Sam Harris
"That actually was first discussed indirectly by herodotus in his book. The histories later picked up by puerto. Peltola anthropologist in the late sixties in the gist is that Although all cultures or at least we think all cultures have social norms some cultures abide by social norms. Much more strictly there. What recall tight cultures. Other groups are much more loose. They have more relaxed attitude toward rules. That have much more permissiveness. And so i've been trying to understand the distinction of type and loose not just across societies but also within nations even within households and across history and why they evolve and what consequences they have. What trade offs they conferred human groups. So that's the kind of gist of what we've been looking up. He oh there's a basic trade off here the certainly covers most and it's always when you discuss toward the end of your book. Which is this trade off between order and freedom You know personally and collectively and you know i think. We'll we'll talk about how we imagine. Kind of an optimal strategy or disposition. Here but whatever's optimal there's no question that there is just a a stark fact of trade off right where their cases where he really want more freedom but then there are situations where that freedom is coming at an unacceptable price. And you want to be able to impose more order. And so there's sort of a flexibility response here that i think we're gonna land on and and you describe this as a kind of ambidextrous with respect to tight and lose but you sent me a quiz that you have your way. Thank before we started here. And i took it and Do you want to guess where i fall or should i just confessed. Where i fall on your. I'll let you tell us i don't. I'm not really sure. I guess totally but What where did you got. A seventy four which is moderately tight. I'm gonna guess that. I didn't want to say that. But i was gonna guess that we're where are you. What did you get in your own quiz. I'm moderately loose. And i'm constantly negotiating with my moderately tight husband who's who is an attorney And we have lots of interesting on negotiations around our household in terms of order and openness In what domains needs to be tight and what domains needs to be loose. We can get maybe back to that in terms of negotiation of loose but Yeah it were. You surprised when you took the quiz. Is that what you know. No was going through the questions. I was kind of anticipating there. They're logic and we could dissect it as a psychometric instrument. But i think i may be an odd use case for some of the logic of that quiz because they're clearly questions. I was answering in a very tight way and others not so much. And it's it's more based on innocent peculiarities about me which which actually relates to waking up and meditation and other related so you have a bunch of questions they are like you know. I can control my emotions. When i need to or something like that right like an obviously. That's that is in fact very true of me. But it's very true of me based on my fairly idiosyncratic focus on meditation and mindfulness and Cetera so. I don't know if i deranged your your instrument thereby background but but anyway it does. I do feel like i'm someone who is Fairly attuned to norm violations. And say that..

"Water. Don't you think you can provide that. But i guess we're all humans you know we we fought could fall into that thanking it very quickly. If you're very thirsty. I imagine yes. That's right so would it be found that the biggest challenge is have been in brazil accurate accounts that also entertaining for a contemporary audience. Well at first. I have to get to know the characters in i really like i said i. I'd studied the scripture. I and as much as told about the woman or the men around her. And as you as you delve into that and try to imagine what might have been you know. I don't change what happened. But i tried to look for what. Why like motivation or how it might have come about and that helps me. Sometimes i pull from people in experiences that are contemporary. That i have the belter dealt with myself to kind of put into. They might have felt that way here. You know sometimes you get an epiphany like that. Where oh i'm going through this trial. Maybe this is how sound so felt during their trial. I it's not the same trial but the feeling could be the same. Yes yes and from the point of view of the actual. I assume that you read hebrew. So how do you do it in terms of the really ancient stuff. You've been a few times to israel. Is that gavin. Juries once wentz. Yeah yeah i actually studied a lot about israel before we went there and i saw the wives of king david right before our first trip. But i'm it. You know i home schooled for twelve years so i was already in in my library. Had a lot of commentaries studied david's life. I found everything. I could find so when i study a new character look for life in times books. Cultural atlases commentaries. I wanna understand the geography. If i'm doing a historical that might fit in a like in egypt. We know allowed ancient egyptian history. But we don't know when. Joseph lived there when moses live there. We can't pinpoint an exact time. Saw had to come up with. What i thought might be a good fit. Sh it could be totally wrong in because there's still debate today. When the accident happened. I went with what i felt that best enough but mine decision imagination. Go back to scripture and stick with that. That's what's true. What what. I have in incorporating historically is just my opinion. Yeah so you don quite a lot of series. I just like to incheon in the names of those because you've driven many books. One of them was daughters of the promised. Land tell us a bit about their edge while the first one and that was that is loosely connected because rahab wasn't really part of the promise land to kind of precedes it a little bit. But she's the first one in conquering of jericho when they got into the prom slammed in any goto how the connection with her son is related to ruth son and deborah really is part of the judges also. Hannah was the very last. Her son was the very last judge before the king zahra so they. All kind of fit inland loosely. The daughters of the promised land. And then the wives of the patriarchs. That'd be about abraham sarah sarai on rebecca and rachel. So abraham isaac and jacob were so that precedes it. Actually i'm in historic doesn't and they the loves of king. Solomon now there were a lot of them. You couldn't possibly now is actually an e book series and i. It was when i got to the end of rachel and i wanted to keep going. I wanted to write about joseph. But she's dead. So i can keep going and so i've had this idea. Will what if we added a book onto the lives of the patriarchs. And then maybe i could add a book until the end of the wives of king. David make them. You know about salomon. Because i know a lot about him and my publisher didn't really like that idea at that time but they like the idea of. Solomon you know the loves if they were sure. So these are novellas. They're not full length. They're not in paperback. they're only on eat e-readers and i did. I picked four women that were mentioned his wife now. The the last wife of david abbas shag who would have been inherited solomon would have inherited her and actually his brother wanted her to marry her which was in essence. Saying i wanna take a thrown from you so he he probably had her in his harem and then there would have been. Let's see the egyptian princess. he married. We know that. For sure. And i added the queen of shoe both because she visited him in there. There's debate on how close they might have been depending on which traditional tale from either ethiopia arabia believe. I kind of combine the two so. Yeah there's only four out of thousand women. I did that and then the heart of king is kind of combines their stories but takes away a little bit the the laws are all in first person from just that woman's finding view in harvey king is salomon story. His views added is turn to third person. So it all meshes together in a way. It's the compilation. But it's different so you freedom a- and Battling and find things you didn't catch in and others so the book precede meriem story was about easter called the star of star richer and deos with that queen who is credited with saving the jews during the reign of king size in the persian empire. Days as you've mentioned it is a well-known story but you've been credited with bringing new insights into it and i wondered how. How do you manage to do that. When these toys are already quite well known now look was one. I never thought i'd write honestly. People had asked me to write about esther knife hutton. What's been done too. Many times before you know and i just put it on the back burner but when we were getting to where i had done so many women in the assessment you know they might publish your liked the idea of estrin. Miriam and i'm like okay in. I'll give it a try Sound interesting. I decided to go into the historical record of Herodotus ends irks as because he was of a historical Person you know you can read about him outside of scripture whereas esther do not appear outside of scripture and his wife outside of scripture is a mess dress and you're.

"It were of the area aren't they. Yes but you know something heritage. Never quite gone in the story of saint joseph because so many of his building programs were projects that required years of construction. Okay today you know. They weren't working with the kind of materials that we've produced today. That could be mass. Produced mechanically and construction didn't happen mechanic. It was a laborious labor intensive process and it often took years. The rebuilding of the temple was not complete until the last years of jesus life so all during jesus childhood certainly to the end of saint joseph's life the projects of herod herod. The great were still going forward. They were still being completed and especially his great project of the temple that was being done with the utmost care and the utmost perfection by the greatest craftsman in the land. So all of these things were still going forward in the times of his sons his heirs. We don't know for sure but we do know that. Jesus of course assisted saint joseph in the craft of the family of being a carpenter. How long do you think he actually performed the family business as it were. I would imagine that he really did work. The family business until the launch of his teaching life. I think that he must have done that. In the years intervening years between joseph's death and his public ministry because he had to support his mother he had to take care of her and he would have done it in the traditional way. That's how he did so much. That's in his life even when he became a rabbi. It was an office that had a certain tradition that he followed. You did perfectly. He did it more perfectly than the others and even his predecessors in that tradition but he did it according to the models that were established the categories that had been established by his ancestors. I i think we can say that. He worked with his hands all through his adolescence and into his adulthood until the time when he launched his life as a teacher and a worker of miracles. There must have been a great joy. When an and i don't mean to be fanciful in my imagining here. But there must have been a great joy for saint joseph to see the first thing that jesus would create. Yes and i would imagine that that happened at a very early age. Because as i said it seems from the historical record that these artisans that grew up in the family business they were always around the workshop and they were made to take part in the work from very early in life so they were given something to do. It were told to sweep the floor. They were told to carry something. You could say why. Don't you take this hammer over to your dad. He needs it right now. And so jesus. Would you know little jesus would walk the hammer across the workshop floor and give it to his dad and that would be his important task for the day. This is the way you grow up in a business You know it's funny. i. I've worked from home since my children were very small and my kids grew up thinking that what adults do is read and write so many of my children have kind of grown into professions. That require these things and you can see out happened. What they saw their parents doing day. In and day out was reading and writing. That's what you imitate. And you're given chances to cooperate with and you want to try your hand at it from very early. You know. I write books. That's what i do for a living in and my son grew up watching me do that. And so when he wanted to earn some money to buy amateur radio equipment when he was an adolescent. He asked me. Well what do you do. You need more money. Dad and i said when need more money i write another book and so he said i'll write a book and he wrote a book and he got it published. He wrote his book on saint jude and he got it published. I think he was fourteen years old when it appeared in print. So yeah i mean this is what kids will do when there's a family business when there's a home business when they're growing up in the trade. Yeah you remind me of my brother. He's a hard working blue collar guy in michigan and yet he had such a good work ethic the value of work and doing it well and treating your coworkers. Well and. I know my nephew learned so much from my brother now. He ended up going into a different type of trade. Then my brother and even though it was a different type i can see in my nephew. The same ethic the same appreciation for the people. You work with with doing a good job and doing it. Well that is important. And that i get a sense. That's exactly what your kids and i. Hopefully our kids to will take on something. I wish i had had when. I was a kid and i. Didn't you know my father was a welder. He worked for a coal mining company and he worked on heavy equipment but in those days there was no. Take your child to work day. That didn't happen so i never. I actually never saw my father's workplace. I passed by it on the road. But i never saw the inside of the breaker. I never saw the inside of the of the sheds where they repaired. The equipment just wasn't part of my childhood and now. I wish i had seen that. I wish i had seen him work. And and frankly. I wish i had. I had the level of motor skills that he had in the trades that he practiced so. There's so much that we miss out on if our children don't see us work. I really think it's wonderful that nowadays you can take your child to work on at least one day a year and they can see how life is lived out by adults too much. Today i think is just sealed off from children and they don't really have an idea of what happens day to day hour to hour and how it's done I think you're absolutely right. And again. That having the model of saint joseph especially as the way you portray him or should. I say the way you offer him to us. It's not so much about what he does. Which is important and you clarify that. But it's how he does it. Yes yes because. I mean all of those people i quoted earlier aristotle and herodotus. They still would not have been impressed by his life. At the end of it they would have seen it as an insignificant life a life that did not have a hint of nobility and they would have been wrong. And i'm confident in saying that because of the effect that he had on history. I think that his was a life of great significance. It was a life of great dignity and it was a life of great nobility the true heir stock recy- is an aristocracy of virtue and.

"To labor and and then to offer god creation as as as a sacrifice. That's what we see from the beginning. When adam falls we find that there are consequences for his work. Th- warns and thistles and brambles. Yes to deal with. There are all kinds of hardships that he has to endure when he goes to work. That's the difference. His work has become arduous after the fall because even the earth is resisting him after that. That's what sin does to us. It makes everything hard it makes relationships ard. It makes our work difficult and laborious it. Introduces this note of negativity into labor. That's the difference after the fall. I don't like that sin. All sin is terrible in terms of its effects. You know we think that we can commit a sin suffer. No consequences that there. Are these victimless crimes. But there aren't all the sins we do all since we commit reduce us and they get us out of sync with creation and with our creator and they make everything hard. They make our work hard. They make our relationships hard. They make life hard for us. The problem is that we habituate ourselves to sin and we can't imagine ourselves doing otherwise we would make life easier. We would make our work easier if we would cultivate virtue and really really cultivate that firm purpose of amendment that were supposed to have when we go to confession and try to eradicate sin from our lives to pull it up by the roots. Well thank goodness for the new adam. Thank goodness for jesus yes. That's right because he has restored us in our common priesthood. He has restored to adam the priest he was supposed to exercise and so we can offer our work four others. We can offer it for special intentions. We can make our work a priestly act. I work at a desk all day. I work on my laptop all day. These are my alters. Its there in the language of the second vatican council that we should offer all the work we do all our labor all our leisure put it on the altar with the gifts that are placed there during the offer tori at mass and together with those gifts will be offered to almighty god together with the body of christ there'll be offered to almighty god and they will be pleasing in his sight. So that's what we wanna do. We wanted to do honest work and offer it to god. We make an a morning offering. That's a traditional thing for catholics. To do it was a traditional thing for jews to do. And that's a sacrificial act. We are making a sacrifice and offering for the sake of the salvation of the world when we do our work as long as we make that offering so yes. That's a very important prayer in our day because it makes all the rest of the day a holy sacrifice. No adam's fall. We find all the patriarchs trying to restore that order of proper sacrifice that the story of cain and abel immediately after the story of adam and eve their whole argument their whole in was about sacrifice. That's what they were struggling over the goodness of abel's sacrifice and a rejection of cain sacrifice. You know throughout history. We see the struggle to align a right interior disposition with the proper form of outward sacrifice and this happens in fits and starts. But it happens in its fullness in jesus christ when he offers himself his body and blood on the cross when he offers himself his body and blood in the eucharist. The night before he suffers so we find that in fulfillment and were given a chance to participate in it. Saint paul says we'll make up what is lacking in the sufferings of christ will make it up in our own flesh for the sake of his body the church so this is what we can do through our work. we can make it a priestly sacrifice. We can make all of creation a priestly sacrifice just as adam was supposed to do. This is the dignity of ordinary work. This is the dignity of manual labor of the work of people like seamstresses carpenters and all of those who work with their hands. I get excited about this. But it's something that's very distinctive about biblical religion. It's something very distinctive about judaism and christianity. It's amazing to me that those that we hold up as the smart guys. The you know the greek philosopher birds and they are indeed and very many ways but as you pointed out with aristotle how there is supposed to be this division that there's those who think in who are in the political arena and seemed to know better in yet and then there's a very much a division in almost the those who would word are essentially servants ultimately to the thinkers that they exist for no other reason but to fuel what they are going to in essence manipulate. And i don't wanna seem to be picking on the greeks because this attitude was universal and it really does set the jews apart from all other people's on earth the greek historian herodotus observed that this attitude toward labor's was everywhere in the world. Listen to this. He says no weather. This to the greeks have learned from the egyptians. I cannot confidently judge. I know that in threes and sit the and persia and lydia and nearly all foreign countries those who learn trades are held in less esteem than the rest of the people and those who have leased to do with artisans. Work are highly honored. So he's making this observation and it's significant. I think that he says nearly all foreign countries. And i suspect that when he was writing this down what made him qualify. His statement was his knowledge that this is not true. Among the jews. I and that the messiah would not be placed into a theological think tank but would be born into a family who its head is a craftsman. You know that's true. We tend to lionize intellectuals and pundits. I always like to point out that saint joseph had no part in that life. He was not a philosopher like filo and he was not a priest like zachariah he was a laborer and we do not have a single one of his words on record so what we have from. Joseph is what he did his actions his deeds. Those are what are memorialized. When the story of his life is told in its most reliable form in the gospel according to matthew we'll return to saint joseph and his world with michelina in just a moment.

This king followed the same manner of dealing as the other both and all the rest and also in that. He made a pyramid not indeed attaining to the measurements of that which was built by the former. This i know having myself also measured it and moreover there are no underground chambers beneath nor does a channel come from the nile flowing to this one to the other in which the water coming through a conduit built for it flows around an island within where they say that keeps himself is laid but for a basement.

These stand both upon the same hill which is about one hundred feet high and catherine they said rained fifty six years here. Then they reckon one hundred six years during which they say that there was nothing but evil for the egyptians and the temples were kept closed and not opened during all that time. These kings the egyptians by reason of their hatred of them are not very willing to name may even call the pyramids after the name of police. The shepherd who at that time pastured flocks in those regions after him they said mccarey knows became king over egypt. Who was the son of chiapas and to him.

"The pylons in the walls but in course of time the houses encroached upon this ground and or even built up against the boundary wall destroyed and rebuilt century after century upon the self same spot the debris of these surrounding dwellings so raised the level of the soil that the temples ended for the most part by being gradually buried in a hollow formed by the artificial elevation of the surrounding city. Herodotus noticed this at put bastos and on examination it is seen to have been the same in many other localities at ambos at edfu at dende era the whole city nestled inside the precincts of the divine dwelling at el kab where the temple tamino's formed a separate enclosure within the boundary of the city walls. It served as a sort of dungeon or keep in which the garrison could seek a last refuge at memphis. And at the cbs there were as many keeps as there were great temples and they sacred fortresses each at first standing alone in the midst of houses were from the time of the eighteenth dynasty connected each with each by avenues of sphinxes these are commonly andro. Sphinxes combining the head of a man and the body of a lion but we also find creo sphinxes which united rams head with a lion's body elsewhere in places where the local worship admitted of such substitution. A coup shot ram holding a statuette up the royal founder between his bent. Forelegs takes the place of the conventional sphinx. The avenue leading from luxor to karnak was composed at diverse elements. It was a one mile and a quarter in length and there were many bends in it but this fact affords no fresh proof of egyptian symmetric phobia. The enclosures of the two temples were not oriented alike and the avenues which started squarely from the fronts of age could never have met. Had they not deviated from their first course finally it may be said that the inhabitants of themes saw about as much of their temples as we see at the present day the sanctuary and its immediate surroundings were closed against them but they had access to the facades the courts and even the hype style halls and might admire the masterpieces of their architects as freely as we admire them.

Herodotus - the Animals of Ancient Egypt
"Ancient times. Crocodiles were common in Egypt. These days Egypt does not have many crocodiles as they can't swim. Pass the great concrete. As when damn that now blocks the River Nile but here auditors sore these fierce reptiles snoozing with their mouths open on the banks of the Nile and he noted that small birds sometimes hopped inside the crocs mouths and picked up bits of food from between their teeth. This type of bird is called the Egyptian plover and it still cleans crocodile's teeth for them. Herodotus describes how the crocodiles grows into an enormous animal after hatching out of a tiny egg he says it has is like a pigs and it's huge teeth. Stick out of its mouth. Well he gets some of his fax. Almost not quite correct for instance. He says the crocodile does not eat anything during four months of winter. Actually it does eat but not very much during that time. He also says that the crocodile does not have a tongue in fact it does have one but it's rather small he tells us that some Egyptians held crocodiles to be sacred which means they worshiped him. Like gods those who celebrated crocodiles brought them up at home presumably in something like a bathtub. They decorated their pet crocs with earrings and bracelets for their feet other Egyptians in my view the more sensible ones saw crocodiles as dangerous enemies and even ate them when they got the chance. They used pigs as bait to hunt crocodiles. Some Egyptians also thought that hippopotamuses were sacred. Her auditors probably did not see these creatures for himself. He claimed that hippos had Maine's entails like horses and nayed like them to. He also thought that their hooves were cloven. Split like a bulls. It's not hard to see where he got. These mistaken ideas from the word hippopotamus comes from two Greek words meaning horse and posthumous meaning river so hippopotamus means river horse. He also told us that authors lived in the Nile in those days and in fact ancient Egyptians made statues of waters standing up as if they were praying. Then he tells us that there's a sacred bird which is not seen with his own eyes but only in paintings the feathers of this remarkable bird where red and speckled with gold it was shaped something like an eagle. This was called the Phoenix. The Phoenix lived most of the time in Arabia and was a very rare visitor to Egypt once about every five hundred years when his father died the Phoenix made an egg out of myrrh which is a perfumed gum or resin from the trunk of a tree. He hollowed out the egg and put his father inside it before carrying him to the Temple of the sun in Halio Palace in Egypt where it buried him. Even Herodotus can't bring himself actually to believe this Tall Tale in truth the Phoenix is a mythical bird that does not exist at all. He also tells us about a harmless Egyptian snake with two horns on its head please. Snakes were sacred to the Egyptians when they died they were buried in the temple of Zeus. Whose name was a raw or Eytam the Sun God. He also tells us about tiny snakes which flew every spring from Arabia to Egypt. He has surely thinking about locusts which alike grasshoppers they're described in the Bible as coming to play the Egyptians according to Herodotus a sacred type of bird called the abyss defends Egypt from flying snakes it describes that abyss as having the legs of a crane and along hooked beak Japan's particularly revered the abyss because it fought off the flying snakes. Well those are some of the wild animals and birds that option is considered to be sacred but the most sacred animal of all for ancient. Egyptians was the cow or bull. And next time I will be telling you how the ancient Egyptians worshiped
