A spiritual home can equal a number of philosophical equations. For example, in Homer with the battle scene philosophy, they appear to wait until dawn, ready, crouched down, in full armour, glistening like beetles. They would wait until dawn and ransack the castle. Trained warriors were needed to keep the side fighting as morale grew slim, the longer the battle lasted. Some had to give up hope and walk away through lack of willpower to fight the battle any more. All battles had to be blessed by the earth god and Jove by libations. Messages from heaven would come in the form of lightning by Jove or a twig dropped by an eagle, other than this the shades would pass on a message. The Heaven you entered, after death, was a pathway underground to the first circle of the abyss or the first circle of hell.
