I should perhaps note this is not an exploration of truth. I only look at social and cultural aspects of things, not interested in policing how things live in peoples minds. Lots of interesting objects with an organic history here, church with its supernatural landlord overcame biological issues early social elites had with holding land long term and the monastery and church shaped the landscape both rural and urban. A landowner that does not die and a territory that does not fragment on death. Coffee, sugar, tobacco, stimulants that fueled further growth and shaped the city in Europe.
I like bikes.
