For all the nascent enlightenment fermenting in Greece, it was still limited by its resource situation and was in regular warfare with its neighbors.� Greek colonies along the Anatolian peninsula�s edge were conquered by Lydia, led by Croesus, who minted the first standardized coins, of electrum, which is a naturally occurring gold/silver alloy. �Cr oesus was defeated in his turn by Persians led by Cyrus the Great .� In 499 BCE, Anatolian Greeks waged a war that threw off Persian rule, but started a series of wars with Persia that lasted to 449 BCE.� Building the fleets that defeated Persia began decimating Greece�s forests once again, and much of the diplomatic wrangling and outright battling was to deny the belligerents access to forests to build their fleets.  � Conquering and then destroying entire cities was a Persian tactic and common for the time, and the Persian extermination of Athenian forces at Thermopylae is one of history�s legendary battles.� When Athens emerged victorious (after the Persians sacked and burned Athens ), they probably had the world�s greatest navy.� Building the Parthenon was one of many civic undertakings during Athens�s golden age, but it lasted only a generation, and few today would call it very golden.� In the world�s first �democracy,� slaves outnumbered citizens and women were virtual prisoners in their homes The Aegean, birthplace of Western civilization : history of East Greek art and culture, 1050-333 BC.

. The Persians who had created a great civilization before the rise of Islam nevertheless produced much more science and learning in the Islamic period than before. The same can be said of the Turks and other peoples who embraced Islam.

New ton invented his Laws of Motion, but the science of energy did not develop until more than a century after the steam engine appeared.� I have heard physicists question whether thermodynamics owed more to the steam engine than the converse.� The so-called laws of thermodynamics began their formulation with Sadi Carnot�s publication in 1824, which is actually the third of the four laws of thermodynamics and is the earliest enunciation of the concept of entropy, and Carnot built on his father�s work .� A generation later, European scientists began taking his work further.  � The great works of Maxwell, Faraday, and friends formed the foundation of today�s science of energy, and many basic terms of today�s energy science were named after the pioneers of energy technology and theory, including Joule, Watt, Volt, Ampere, Coulomb, Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin, and Rankine.  That ph enomenon of placing human names on the natural world was like when European �explorers� placed their names on Earth�s geographical features as they �discovered� them.� It was a bid for immortality, although naming it after themselves was frowned upon.� It was usually an honor bestowed by others in the same enterprise.� I was born and live in Washington State, bounded by the Columbia River, in a nation with its capital city named Washington, the District of Columbia .� I once worked in Columbus, Ohio .� It is impossible for Americans to avoid the influence of the USA�s two greatest Founding Fathers, who were greedy, mass murdering thieves above all else ( 1, 2 ). � Fairy tales have been told to American schoolchildren for centuries about Washington, as well as about Columbus�s heroic feat, and there was even an effort to canonize Columbus .� American ideologists thereby turned darkness into light, and few Americans ever discover any differently .� In preparation f or the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Columbus�s feat, which had the highest event attendance in world history to that time, American children were trained to worship a flag .� The original gesture was copied by Hitler and Mussolini, which led Americans to taking down their arms and putting their hands on their chests, and a decade later, overtly religious terminology was added to the ritual.� Those issues are highly relevant to this essay�s subject matter, as such indoctrination is another form of limbic conditioning designed to bypass the neocortex and conscious thought to control people, so that they either throw their lives away �defending� the tribe or nation, cheer as others do so, or many other actions designed to serve those manipulating the symbols.� Monkeys can be trained to salute flags or Der F�hrer, as could be seen in that scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, but they cannot pass the mirror test, so �patriotism� is no great mental feat. �Mark Twain had perceptive observations about " patriotism ."
