“In Pace Requiescat, Fortunato!”
As the dying breaths of Philosophy stumble upon the open gates of your very mind, they gasp the final words of remembrance. “In Pace Requiescat.” For all of you literature fans, the simple phrase “In Pace Requiescat” were made famous by Edgar Allan Poe’s Cask of Amontillado, perhaps one of the greatest short stories ever written.

The Journalism Approach to aspects of life affect just about anything we could do in aspects of Mental and Physical approaches. World Trade did the same, affecting Cultural advantages and finally eradicating all Geography around the world by introducing new plants and foods into regions unable to produce them before. In response to Satire, a respected Republican once stated “if you cannot make fun of yourselves, you have no reason to live.” In response to literature, it connects the virtual aspects of Physical and Mental approaches to Society. Now to the darker part of In Pace Requiescat. While Persona used it to strengthen the feel of his murder in The Cask of Amontillado, it is a Latin phrase, translated into “Rest In Piece.”
Well, as stated in former posts, Opinion cannot simply “In Pace Requiescat”, now, can it?
Moving along from that fancy little introduction, eventually everything does “In Pace Requiescat”, as stated before in multiple Empires, historical and virtual. Respected names can be tarnished under serious scandals and poor choices, including names such as King Richard III, Richard Nixon, John Wilkes Booth, and James Buchanan.
Empires Fall. Respected Names shrivel to nothing but shame. Legacies are forgotten in the dark abyss of human arrogance. Connections between Historical and Virtual References include your own leaders. Someone in some Virtual Army somewhere has a name in his name referencing to a name of the past. “Kennedy” being the most popular. Well, People who Love making References to Kennedy (cough, ACP, cough), watch this.
Moving farther, “History’s Bound to Repeat Itself” do not stop at Virtual Points. Empires will always fall, Evil will always Rise, Something Bad will Always Happen. Take a look at one of the most influential teachers I’ve ever had asked us before.
Is Life Determined by Character or Fate?
A Fairly good question, bathed in whoever’s bias [opinion]. While History References claim everything repeats itself eventually (even in our sanctuary of virtual gaming), actions of people with power can affect even more. Imagine the differences between a man with corrupt intentions running an army and a man with good intentions running the same said army. A Great bit of Characteristics bathed in there. Characteristics of a corrupt leader and a samatrian leader can affect just about any situation. But did fate place those people there?
While that would be fun to debate on, we all would have different responses based on our personal opinions. While Historical References make their way into each and every Virtual World Definition, they leave an imprint on our “society.”
Which Empire will Crumble under the mass of Satire and Philosophy? Which Historical References imprint on our Virtual Society? Which prophecies of fame and fortune were unleashed. Conspiracy Theories, Philosophy, History.
They are all Opinion, and you cannot Kill Off Opinion.
