The total eclipse was terrifying to the people because the sun was their most sacred object. They even had two gods for the sun not only one. It was terrifying to the priest-astronomers as well because that threatened their power over the people.
Of course, they thought of him as a god. And for almost the end of their days they worshiped him. Even kings were naming themselves on his name as an indication that they are the medium between him and the people. The Mayans started developing on their knowledge. They developed their own advanced numerical system. They build a lot of great pyramids and other monuments. But among all, they were distinguished in astronomy. They studied the sky a lot. They studied the movements of bodies in the sky. By the time, astronomy became complex enough that not any Mayan could study it. And that when ‘The Abyss’ came back.
This was an important time in history of science because Pythagoreans (and other Greeks after that) contributed a lot to Mathematics which is the holy language of everything. The secret code of the universe. Based on these theories a lot was achieved. The other interesting thing here is that this time there was no existence for ‘The Abyss’. It was a free society and everyone can practice and learn whatever they want. But this time the scientists were the one who destroyed themselves. They let arrogance get to their hearts so they turned from the united goal to being selfish about science.
One day, a man named Cylon wanted to join the school. Cylon was a nobleman in Croton. He was rich and had high family reputation in Croton but he was cruel, brutal and tyrant. These were the reasons he was rejected from joining the Pythagorean school. Because of that, all his love towards Pythagoras turned into anger and hatred. He wanted one thing.
Revenge from the Pythagorean school. With ‘No Exceptions’.
But as history has taught us every time, there is no eternal good. Pythagoras was a great brilliant mathematician but he also had some other thoughts. Some weird and crazy thoughts. Unfortunately, these thoughts did not bring a happy ending at all.
By the fall of Mycenaean Greece, the Greeks lived what we call ‘The Greek Dark Ages’ from 1100 – 800 BC. Why did we call it the dark ages? Well, no more monumental buildings were built, no more art, no more writing, no trade, all the towns were abandoned, the population was reduced and the government and army system disappeared. It was really dark back then and it seemed that everyone were on their own.
But you know what they say, every darkness must be followed by light. And here we start our new story.
