Napoleon didn't exist, is only a myth.

Your entire life is an illusion: New test backs up theory that the world doesn’t exist until we look at it:
  •       Quantum mechanics states reality doesn't exist until it's measured
  •       This means a particle's past behaviour changes based on what we see
  •       Experiment using an atom and laser beams has proven this to be true
  •       How the atom behaved depended on how it was measured at end of test

Now, physicists at the Australian National University have found further evidence for the illusory nature of reality. They recreated the John Wheeler’s delayed-choice experiment and confirmed that reality doesn’t exist until it is measured, at least on the atomic scale.

La realidad es una ilusión, el universo es un holograma. (Bill Cipher)

Metaphysical solipsism: is the strongest variety of solipsism. Based on a philosophy of subjective idealism, metaphysical solipsism maintain that the self is the only existing reality and that all other reality, including the external world and other persons, are representations of that self, and have no independent existence. 

When Socrates 2400 years ago stated his famous "I know that I know nothing" he didn't really know how right he was. We know each time less. Some actual experiments show that reality is created when observed, that the past behavior of particles can change based on what we see. So the past can be past or only a myth. Would be then strange that in 1000 years Napoleon is seen as non existing and only one more of the myths related to the sun? In fact we know it already but is nicer to believe Napoleon existed really.

Let's see:
.- His name was Napoleon Bonaparte
.- Was born in an island of the Mediterranean Sea
.- Mother's name was Laetitia
.- Had 3 sisters and 4 brothers, 3 of them were kings
.- Finished one revolution
.- Had 16 Field Marshals, 12 in active service
.- Was glorious in the south and succumbed in the north
.- After 12 years ended in the western seas.

1.- Poets (and not only) call the sun Apollo (in French Apollon). Apollo is the same as Apolleon and derives from the Greek verbs apollou / paoleo  that mean, kill, lose, exterminate.  Is clear that Napoleon "killed" "exterminated" people in his wars. Note the complete similarity between Apolleon and Napoleon, the difference is the "N", but this is again Greek where ne, nei is one of the biggest affirmations. This means that we would speak about the real, the important, the true Apolleon, the true Sun. 

What about the family name? Bonaparte. Means good part- He is the good part. Something related with the sun has two parts ... what? the day, light and darkness; darkness that disappears when the sun is present. What do we have? The true sun that illuminates, that is the good part of the day, that kills darkness and enemies. 

Seems we follow the right way. Let's continue... 

2.- Napoleon, like Apollo was born in an island. Corsica, close to France like Delos was also close to Greece. Pausanias tells that Apollo was in fact a Egyptian god (born out of Egypt and adored there as such). Napoleon was also considered as a special man, friend of Muhammad the prophet and was even adored in some places. 

3.- Mother's name was Laetitia, that means joy, but is clear that under this name is referred the sunrise, the joy of the day. Leto was the name of Apollo's mother, converted into Letona by the Romans. The name evolved to Laetitia. Leto gave birth to Apollo and disappeared practically after. Also the sunrise vanishes when Apollo grows and Napoleon overshadows the mother. 

4.- Napoleon had 3 sisters and Apollo also: the Kharites (Charites or Graces) daughters of Zeus. 

5.- Napoleon had 4 brothers from which 3 were kings. And Apollo? well it is clear that the 4 brothers have to be the 4 Seasons. Three Kings: Spring, that reigns over the flower, Summer that reigns over the harvest, Autumn that reigns over the fruits. They reign by the grace of the Sun, so is clear they got the power from Apollo. The fourth brother, Winter doesn't reign over anything. 

I could be argued that Winter can be considered the Principality of Ice, Snow and Cold. This in only one more point to compare to the Principality of Canino given to one of the brothers. Precisely Canino derives from Cani the white hair typical from the old, sad age that is considered the winter of life. Poets compare since at least Roman time the white hair with the snow on the trees: "Cum gelibus crescit canis in montibus humor". 

6.- Apollo killed the Piton, a snake that terrified humans and animals. Napoleon ended with the French Revolution that was called the Hydra of France. But Hydra is a mythical snake of 7 heads, at the end a powerful snake and Napoleon ended with it. Moreover, Napoleon ended with the snake of the revolution and revolution derives from revolvo which is coiled, so the piton snake. 

Seems that we find too many parallelisms to be just a mere coincidence, no? Let's continue ...

7.- The 12 Field Marshals of Napoleon are clearly a reference to the 12 signs from the Zodiac and the 4 inactive are the 4 cardinal points that observe the movement of the other 12.

8.- Napoleon was winning in the South, had problems in the North. This happens also with the sun that covers well the South but has to withdraw from the North for some months. 

9.- The sun rises in the east and dies in the West. We can say that is rises in the oriental sea and dies in the Western sea. Napoleon came from the East to reign over France and died in the western sea, after being 12 years ruling the country. What are these 12 years if not the metaphoric 12 hours of the day that the sun is showing his power during the day on the horizon? 

It is clear we have taken as history part of the mythology. All describes only the sun moving around the earth as it was thought in ancient times! 

It is evident: reality doesn't exist, we create / invent reality when we look to what we observe. And if reality does not exist and we create all when we observe, then is clear that napoleon existed or not depending you read this text or not. And if you do... you may modify the past and can be this text was created only for your eyes... or not.

Social Invisibility


        It is unfortunate for the gods that, unlike us, they cannot commit suicide.
       (Ryūnosuke AkutagawaRashomon and Seventeen other Stories)

       I can speak with myself, even play theater, but alone I can't truly comfort my soul.
       (Ibrahim S. Lerak, Notebook)

The meeting of the circle took place as usual around the table in the restaurant. We were all but still had the impression that someone was missing. The diner was there, but for some reason we didn't really see him. This was a provoking joke because the subject of the speech was precisely "Social Invisibility". 

César reacted well and started the discussion: Who didn't say once in life "I wish I would be invisible"? Normally is expressed to watch some indecorous or forbidden things or to enjoy some pleasures free of charge. Invisibility can be also needed in some delicate moments when we wish not to been caught in flagrant evidence, the moment in which we wish society would not see us. 

There are many ways to exclude people in society besides prison. Some have a modern name: mobbing, bullying, xenophobia... all ways to show that someone is not accepted, but is seen just only obliged to leave. This -the exclusion of society- is not new. Ostracism is already documented in the year 506 BC. The name derives from the Greek ostraka, referring to the pottery shards that were used as voting tokens. Yearly the Athenians were asked in the assembly whether they wished to hold an ostracism. If they voted "yes", then an ostracism would be held two months later. In a section of the agora citizens gave the name of those they wished to be ostracized to a scribe, and they then scratched the name on pottery shards, and deposited them in urns. The person who was the most nominated would be banished, provided that the total number of votes cast was at least 6,000. Interesting is that the person nominated could be anyone, without having done anything special. As long as at least 6000 people wanted him out he had ten days to leave the city and not return in ten years. If he attempted to return, the penalty was death. Notably, the property of the person banished was not confiscated and there was no loss of status. After the ten years, he was allowed to return without stigma. It was possible for the assembly to recall an ostracized person ahead of time as it was the case with Pericles' father Xanthippus, Aristides 'the Just' and Cimon. 

Is clear that ostracism threatens the survival of the individual who suffers it. Was used to control socially problematic group members and act as motivating force to keep people obeying some controversial norms or to eliminate those who didn't follow the will of the group. Indefinite ostracism would mean social death, what in ancient tribal cultures is the equivalent to individual death as the group is needed to survive. But what if instead of ostracism the penalty would be social invisibility? Can the individual survive? Let's see a first easy case because there is some research done on the existence of declared invisibility within existing romantic relationships. Often referred to as the "silence treatment", i.e. putting yourself sulking, not talking and ignoring the couple. It is very frequent in intimate relationships. About 70% of the couples studied in the research recognized use or suffer this manipulation tactic. The goal is to end unwanted conduct and the pressure is so strong that ends soon in peace or at least what we could call armistice within the couple. Chronic, repetitive ostracism results in depression, health problems and psychological alteration. The lack of being recognized as member of a society implies a useless life of the individual. Precisely this is why the social invisibility could be adopted to force individual to accept the rules. A strong punishment would be needed for those breaking the rules and having contact with invisible people.

There are two ways of being invisible to society:

.- The person "simply disappears" from all registers and has to survive alone during the time of the penalty. Being recognized by the rest of people by a mark or whatever visible by everybody, nobody could have any kind of contact with the banned person. Would be a kind of "this person is a ghost". If somebody would think is positive for the condemned as it would be easy to steal or go to the movie or ... then, would be mistaken. Ghost don't exist, we don't see them, so we can shoot, hit, occupy the empty space. Would not be easy for the invisible. And would be no benefit for the society also. 

.- Society can profit the invisible individual by letting all equal in work and life of the punished except considering him as a person to whom is possible to talk. Rather a machine without brain. Being obliged to still be productive for the society but impossible to communicate (would need a change of work, but maintain activity). Resignation appears when you can't communicate because nobody sees you, when you are alone. Mental disorder appears when you feel nobody wants you and rejects you every moment and in every place without possibility of escaping.

Exaggerated? What is happening with mobbing in adults? is similar and brings in extreme cases to suicide. What is happening with teenagers in Facebook? Worst punishment is to be excluded from the group: is total invisibility. And in the companies where employees are just numbers? In all cases the self esteem is broken, the consideration to the own personality is not existing and the capacity to contribute (in fact to be valued) is ignored.

First instinct is survival but without the group we are less than nothing and are brought to disappear physically or mentally. Society can learn from this power. Has not used it yet to a total extent of possibilities. But it can come soon. Control by emotions and fear of exclusion is a lethal weapon for individual personality.
