“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

When the Greatest went to war

When the Greatest went to war

The storms that had rocked the boats so badly, and had filled their holds with the sickness and misery of wretched troopers and sailors, had finally abated. The weather had cleared at least enough to permit the operation to proceed. And so, the great invasion fleet...
Resist and bite

Resist and bite

There is absolutely nothing original about comparing the very visible and observable decline of the West, with the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. I am certainly not the first to make that comparison. Assuredly I will not be the last. Unoriginal though such...

Didactic Mind, Ep 77: The Forge of Vulcan

Today I wax philosophical again about the nature of our tests and the reasons why we are tested to, and often beyond, our breaking points. I go through Biblical prophets from the Old Testament and examine how they were tested and broken, in order to do what God needed...

The gates of Hell are locked from within

The fundamental story of the Bible is of God’s attempts to reach out to His Creation and repair it – and of His Creation’s stubborn refusal to pay attention to the loving ministrations of a God that cares deeply about us. We have grown prideful and...

Guest Post: Go Get It by The Male Brain

Our good friend Dawn Pine noticed that I’m rather busy these days and in dire need of some R&R, and very kindly wrote in with a guest post for The Agoge series. This post is all about getting your butt into gear so that you can go and get what you want in...
A gelded man in a gilded cage

A gelded man in a gilded cage

A very great deal of ink has been spilled about the latest round of stupidity from Harry and the Half-Blood Princess. Quite a few genuinely hilarious memes have come out of it all too. You saw many of them in a recent Great Mondaydact Browser Crusher. I have no...
The formation of damnation

The formation of damnation

It is fairly evident from what I write that I do not have a particularly high opinion of Toe Rogan. He has his moments and I respect him, up to a point, but I also think that he took the ticket when he joined Spotify, at least to some extent. However, if he is a...
