I've seen glimpses of it in other people though, and I can totally believe that someone could occupy that level of aura and principle.
You can see it in sports sometimes.. Particularly with coaches and managers. I support Liverpool football club, and the manager now is a man called Jurgen Klopp. He takes average players and improves them to be the best, he's able to inspire millions of people to trust instrinsically in him at a level that feels like magic.. it's ineffable. And all he is doing is being himself, but we as human beings instinctively know being in his presence, or even through a screen, that this is someone special with a special aura. Even if he weren't in that prestigeous position, it would be the exact same.
Some people are just anomalies.
89% is based on imagination, 11% on fact
Fact is life was really boring and most people had not much hope of advancement or change in their lives for the vast majority of human history. Taking a little thing you saw in your surroundings and making a more interesting story out of it is one way to make a boring life interesting.
As always being disappointed how the modern western mind always fails to understand even the simple of things that old cultures had little to no issue with as it is linear in the box type of thinking that creates then enforces limitations on everyone with great loss of freedom of thought and belief. At best the western mind is good on some academic levels and being good for business with a limited scope of creativity but beyond that everything else may as well be blasphemy to the false gods of this age concocted by dry linear minds with minimal to no flexibility towards alternative thought. Mythology ads color and texture that would otherwise be missing but to assume religious faiths such as Christianity as fable is not only ridiculous it is insulting.
