Things to look up and review

Horus – Sun God of Egypt, born on December 25th of the virgin Isis-Meri. Had 12 disciples he traveled about with, performing miracles such as healing the sick and walking on water. After being betrayed by Typhon, Horus was crucified, buried for 3 days, and resurrected

Attis, of Phyrigia, born of the virgin Nana on December 25th, crucified, placed in a tomb and after 3 days, was resurrected.

Krishna, of India, born of the virgin Devaki with a star in the east signalling his coming, performed miracles with his disciples, and upon his death was resurrected

Dionysus of Greece, born of a virgin on December 25th, was a traveling teacher who performed miracles such as turning water into wine

Mithra, of Persia, born of a virgin on December 25th, he had 12 disciples and performed miracles, and upon his death was buried for 3 days

And were there not some parallels also in the Epic of Gilgamesh? I wonder if I still have my copy.

    I liked it. Understated and perhaps a little too academic. No adventure and a touch of world – weariness. I recognised Bixby as the author of ‘It’s A Good Life’ from the old Hugo Award days. It is a bit like a story I once wanted to write myself. I have always been fascinated by the implications of “immortality”.

    I think the most I’ve seen referenced was 13 in that tradition.
    And this is very good.
