I am here, Alexander.
Yes, you are correct, that I wanted to convey a message to you. As I had a very powerful impact on history, I want to give you my current perspective about my life.
In my conceit, I believed the story surrounding my birth, that it was influenced somehow by a god. Yes, I felt very arrogant because of this. But over here, the truth was humiliating: I learned it was all a falsehood, the product of someone’s overheated brain.
I also prided myself on my exploits in war, as was the custom in my time. But reality over here is so very different, and those who thought this way have always had a rude awakening. You were going to read the whole chapter about me in Plutarch’s Lives, but then you gave up in disgust. I don’t blame you. The type of life I led on earth left me completely unprepared for what awaited me over here.
It is hard for a military man to cope in this spirit world. All his reality has been left behind, and he is left with nothing but himself. Though I did love knowledge, I never really cultivated myself as I should have, so that when I arrived in this other world, I felt helpless.
Alexander the Great Megas Alexandros; 356 BC – 323 BC), also known as Alexander III of Macedon was an ancient Greek King (basileus) of Macedon (336–323 BC). He was one of the most successful military commanders of all time and is presumed undefeated in battle. By the time of his death, he had conquered (see Wars of Alexander the Great) the Achaemenid Persian Empire, adding it to Macedon’s European territories; according to some modern writers, this was most of the world as known to the ancient Greeks.
