Dear Themis, it is awfully bad manners for a priestess to make her consultant ashamed on account of his ignorance! Not all of us are permitted to scale the same dizzying Parnassi as your clan.

Still, thanks for your disquisition. Isn't fugu a kind of poisonous fish? Is the return to antiquity a poisonous fish, perhaps?

"Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee."

Another bit of imperialist tripodage is witnessed in the Serpent Column:


Oh, and I forgot to mention, there is a book called "Have You Been to Delphi?" (http://www.amazon.com/Have-You-Been-Delphi-Traditions/dp/0791447820) which contains an interview with some Tibetan monk on the similarities between the Delphic and (modern) Tibetan oracles.

"Fugu" as in the glorious Confucian "Fugu Movement" 復古.... :)

Of course, there could have been a pufferfish movement as well. Maybe there should be. thanks for the book recommendation too.
have a good one.

PS Themis, it seems, was not known for her manners...
