Maybe. Or some other of those curious patterns we find in human behaviour.

The Enlightened One was of a rich noble family, but that's probably the only coincidence. He fell into an unexplainable sadness and went away and meditated during months in a cave, and then he realised why he and the rest of humankind felt sad and misplaced in the world. He said Elan, the Eternal One, had come and cleansed his "inner room" (his soul). The date I mentioned (1200 years after the Enlightenment) corresponds to the language in the inscription, not necessarily to the inscription. Anyway, the Dr=E1selhadh live in a parallel Earth, so there would have to be some interdimensional leak in order for one of his scriptures to end up *here*. This could easily include some time distorsion :) -- I guess we'll never know for sure. --Pablo Flores * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * En gian idgrivar fr=FAmneltel frasi=E9rraser gian pavonn be i malladhar siqged=FCer.
