Bra'Tac and the Cloak of Stars
Nelson Mandela left a legacy of greatness; "When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw."
Bra'tac - a skillful focussed warrior who understood the deepest nature of Harsesis - child of descent to rival the knowledge of Horus, son of Isis.
"A warrior's true strength comes from his heart and mind, " he told Teal'c, his apprentice, more than once. Bra'tac guarded his knowledge and shared it sparingly, wary of the nature of humankind in all its many forms.
"Draw from your past, but do not let your past draw from you." Instinctively accessing the wisdom of the Ancients comes with a certainty that the past is either a dangerous burden, or a useful collection of tools. Keep your course firmly tuned to the future, he would advise. The wind can tell you much of what lies on the ground ahead. Worry and stress are seeded in the past - repetition of fears realised feeds fear of their repetition. Bra'tac understands fear.
The actor wearing the cloak of stars is Tony Amendola, who has a distant relative in Luca Amendola. Follow the links - there is a subtle resemblance between these two men of very different destinies. Their connection led to Tony Amendola's considered decision to make our followship symbiotic. Your presence is an honour, Master Bra'tac, one which Quantumology will strive continually to warrant.
Bra'tac would deem crucial our knowing the true nature of stars, both those beyond our skies and those within our personal singularity. His legacy of wisdom from the days of SG1 will ring true for evermore.
Tony Amendola has depth of wisdom and spirit written in his eyes, and you know that he feels the truth of lines to be learned. This is the quality that crosses the line from thespian to Master - a man who can live his character enough to let it be at one with who he truly is. We watched it first-hand, and were inspired. Thank you.
