Imagine if you will, being the leader of a Utopian society that was highly advanced, and possessed the knowledge of God, and you learned of a society that was still in the dark ages, primitive in nature. Imagine if you journeyed to this society with intentions of shedding light on this primitive culture and helping them advance into modern times. Imagine bringing the leaders of that Culture back to your empire and educating them with everything you know, teaching them about farming, irrigation, government, and mathematics. You teach them about God and the universe, the stars in the sky and how it all operates. Imagine if you sent them back to their society with all this new found knowledge to spread to their people. Imagine them going back and spreading this knowledge, but not with the intentions of building a better world, but instead, they planned to overthrow your empire. Imagine they went back and built an army and devised a plan to use your knowledge against you. Imagine they came back to your empire, imagine thinking it was a friendly visit, but instead it was a sneak attack. Imagine they kill, rape, and pillage your entire empire. Imagine they kill you and enslave your women and children and anyone that goes against their plans is executed and made an example of. Imagine them destroying all documentation of your history, imagine them defacing all your monuments, imagine them rewriting your history books and painting themselves as the savior of your society. Imagine them brainwashing your descendants and teaching them to hate their own skin. Imagine centuries of oppression and abuse at the hands of the same people you tried to help. Imagine one of your descendants discovering a trace of your past. Imagine that igniting a passion inside of him, imagine that giving birth to a lust for knowledge similar to yours. Imagine this person setting out to spread this knowledge just as you did thousands of years ago. Imagine this man sparking a revolution to overthrow this new Oligarchy. Imagine him awakening his brothers and sisters and them standing United as one, just as you did in the past.
