This excerpt describes when Julius Caesar was captured by pirates, and why pirates hate him so much. Caesar outsmarted the pirates by paying his ransom and then cleverly turning against the pirates and capturing their fleet of ships and their money. Pirates in the Mediterranean Sea were a huge problem.
Notice all the parallels to the life of Jesus, and how easily part of this story could be the basis for what has come to us as the life of Jesus Christ. The very word Caesar is a form of the name Zacharia, which is the family of the High Priesthood. When Caesar, here described as a “candidate for the priesthood” became so famous that there were countless attempts on his life, he may have simply decided to die to his old self in a fake stabbing, and create a new persona. This was an acceptable practice ever since the days of ancient China, when the brother of a good King who had been murdered decided to feign insanity and live with slaves until he was able to make his move against the King’s murderers.
The Sikhs also had the same belief: that it is an acceptable practice to use a disguise and to go into hiding as part of a strategy to protect oneself or loved ones against a violent enemy. It appears to me that Julius Caesar changed his identity several times, and that several Caesars in a row, including Julian possibly, were actually the same person, and that includes Jesus.
This strategy is still practiced to today. I wonder how many people right now are living incognito, waiting for the opportunity to strike back. Just as soon as men like Trump and Putin create a safe environment, who knows how many truths could emerge.
Remember that Julius Caesar changed the calendar, restoring it to the ancient form based on the sun rather than the moon, so the dates will be confused during these years. The year 1 A.D. is the year Jesus died, not the year he was born. But he didn’t really die, he arose again in three days and became someone else, another Caesar, one who spent time in each of the provinces of Rome, and Rome covered the whole earth. Is Roman not Rahman, with the capitol city in Nepal in the Himalayas. So Rome is part of the Indies or rather ‘Berat’, the Western part? Plutarch calls this the ‘commonwealth’ or so it is translated.
So take a good look at the many enormous forts in India, and realize that they are Roman forts, and that they weren’t all built in 200 years beginning in 1600 as the usurpers claim. They are Christian forts with the Christian decorations ripped out, and they are at least 2000 years old. The forts are in ruins and some are painted over with crude pagan artwork that is obviously a later addition.
No wonder Mother Mary is crying. One of these forts was her home, and it’s probably the one called Mehrangarh. One way to see the inside of the ruined forts is to look up the most haunted places in India and watch some youtube ghost hunter videos. Some of these places are so haunted they say, that no one is allowed on the premises after dark. I don’t know about that, but surely there could be plenty of upset ghosts, considering how much work went into building those forts, and to see what they look like today, with pirates using them and for what, God only knows.
(died 44 B.C.)

“After Sylla [a pirate] became master of Rome, he wished to make Caesar put away his wife Cornelia, daughter of Cinna, the late sole ruler of the commonwealth, but was unable to effect it either by promises or intimidation, and so contented himself with confiscating her dowry.
The ground of Sylla’s hostility to Caesar was the relationship between him and Marius; for Marius, the elder, married Julia, the sister of Caesar’s father, and had by her the younger Marius, who consequently was Caesar’s first cousin. And though at the beginning, while so many were to be put to death, and there was so much to do, Caesar was overlooked by Sylla, yet he would not keep quiet, but presented himself to the people as a candidate for the priesthood, though he was yet a mere boy.
Sylla, without any open opposition, took measures to have him rejected, and in consultation whether he should be put to death, when it was urged by some that it was not worth his while to contrive the death of a boy, he answered, that they knew little who did not see more than one Marius in that boy. Caesar, on being informed of this saying, concealed himself, and for a considerable time kept out of the way in the country of the Sabines [Nepal], often changing his quarters, till one night, as he was removing from one house to another, he fell into the hands of Sylla’s soldiers, who were searching those parts in order to apprehend any who had absconded. Caesar, by a bribe of two talents, prevailed with Cornelius, their captain, to let him go, and was no sooner dismissed but he put to sea and made for Bithynia.
After a short stay there with Nicomedes, the king, in his passage back he was taken near the island of Pharmacosa by some of the pirates, who, at that time, with large fleets of ships and innumerable smaller vessels, infested the seas everywhere.
When these men at first demanded of him twenty talents for his ransom,
he laughed at them for not understanding the value of their prisoner,
and voluntarily engaged to give them fifty. He presently despatched
those about him to several places to raise the money, till at last
he was left among a set of the most bloodthirsty people in the world,
the Cilicians, only with one friend and two attendants.
Yet he made so little of them, that when he had a mind to sleep, he would send
to them, and order them to make no noise. For thirty-eight days, with
all the freedom in the world, he amused himself with joining in their
exercises and games, as if they had not been his keepers, but his
guards. He wrote verses and speeches, and made them his auditors,
and those who did not admire them, he called to their faces illiterate
and barbarous, and would often, in raillery, threaten to hang them.
They were greatly taken with this, and attributed his free talking
to a kind of simplicity and boyish playfulness. As soon as his ransom
was come from Miletus, he paid it, and was discharged, and proceeded
at once to man some ships at the port of Miletus, and went in pursuit
of the pirates, whom he surprised with their ships still stationed
at the island, and took most of them. Their money he made his prize,
and the men he secured in prison at Pergamus, and he made application
to Junius, who was then governor of Asia, to whose office it belonged,
as praetor, to determine their punishment.
Junius, having his eye upon the [ransom] money, for the sum was considerable, said
he would think at his leisure what to do with the prisoners, upon which Caesar took
his leave of him, and went off to Pergamus, where he ordered the pirates
to be brought forth and crucified; the punishment he had often threatened
them with whilst he was in their hands, and they little dreamt he
was in earnest.
In the meantime Sylla’s power being now on the decline, Caesar’s friends
advised him to return to Rome, but he went to Rhodes, and entered
himself in the school of Apollonius, Molon’s son, a famous rhetorician,
one who had the reputation of a worthy man, and had Cicero for one
of his scholars.
Caesar is said to have been admirably fitted by nature
to make a great statesman and orator, and to have taken such pains
to improve his genius this way that without dispute he might challenge
the second place. More he did not aim at, as choosing to be first
rather amongst men of arms and power, and, therefore, never rose to
that height of eloquence to which nature would have carried him, his
attention being diverted to those expeditions and designs which at
length gained him the empire. And he himself, in his answer to Cicero’s
panegyric on Cato, desires his reader not to compare the plain discourse
of a soldier with the harangues of an orator who had not only fine
parts, but had employed his life in this study….”
