Alexander the Great
So staggering was the vision of Alexander the Great that to understand it, humanity had to stretch its understanding of the size of the world and what could be achieved within it. Tutored as a child by Aristotle himself, by age thirty Alexander had defeated the Persians to create the largest empire in the ancient world, stretching from Greece to India. It’s no wonder the Greeks believed him to be a demigod descended from Achilles — no man had ever asked the universe for something so grand and had his wish granted.
FOR THOSE WITH VISIONS GREATER THAN THE DREAMS OF MERE MORTALS, LET ALEXANDER THE GREAT GUIDE YOU.
