In his book "Pirates and Emperors, OlD and New" Noam Chomsky reintroduces St. Augustine’s story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great.

When the Emperor angrily DemanD: "How Dare you molest the seas?", the pirate replied: "How dare you molest the whole world?"

The Emperors manipulate history by dividing and polarizing previously syncretic religious mythology.

The project brings to the light the backward flow of time.
