1. Was or wasn't a need to erect the Pyramids?

There are adversaries and advocates of different theories about causes of an appearance and purpose of the Egyptian Pyramids  among of scientists of different countries, and until now specialists in etymology guess a riddles of existing on boulders inscriptions.

Pyramids provoke a torpor at one pair of tourists and an aesthetic enjoyment at others, but have not any whom these works seem odious.

By one of the versions Pyramids bulwarked for a transfer an active and life-asserting energy for earthmen and the Earth; but the most rife version is that they were erected for a burial of defunct Pharaohs.

An answer to a question — «Was or wasn't a need to erect the Pyramids?», depends on what kind of version to hold about the time and reasons for their erection.

But no matter what the answer is, we can say without hyperbole that these Egyptian «Wonders of the world» were and continue to remain a true living legend of this surprising and enigmatic country and they should be preserved for posterity for centuries to come.

2. Brave king.

There is a legend about a defunct king who built a strong aesthetic bulwark to protect his land and people from fearsome invaders from the Northern Lands.

These odious enemies were wicked and ruthless barbarians and their forays were rife on those days.

King's people were scared and frightened; so the king decided to stop this torpor and gathered all his men at Central Square to pontificate great inspiring speech.

He was a good speaker, he knew etymology very well and used a lot of hyperboles — so he was able to inspire his people to stand up and fight the enemy.

They won that difficult battle, banished the barbarians far away from their Motherland and left for their posterity this inspiring legend.
