Lightbulb The General

Knight of Cups..
Knight was born in Massillon, Ohio, and grew up in Orrville, Ohio.. Knight began his career as a player at Orrville High School..Knight was an innovator of the motion offense, which he perfected and popularized and was well known for the extreme preparation he put into each game and practice..In 88 Knight married Karen Vieth Edgar, a former Oklahoma high school basketball coach has a high regard for education and has made generous donations to the schools he has been a part of, particularly libraries..Those on the suit of cups wear gold garments, embellished by the heraldic device of sun and rays; each figure holds a large chalice, as it is often the case with the suit..

Knight Praises Trump..

A knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the Monarch or country, especially in a military capacity..The first knights appeared during the reign of Charlemagne in the 8th century..Often, a knight was a vassal who served as a fighter for a lord, with payment in the form of land holdings and food from serfs.. The special prestige given to mounted warriors finds a parallel in the furusiyya in the Muslim world, and the Greek hippeus (ιππεύς) and the Roman eques of Classical Antiquity..The word knight, from Old English cniht ("boy" or "servant"), is a cognate of the German word Knecht ("servant, bondsman")..The modern female equivalent is Dame..The Major Arcana or trumps are a suit of 22 cards in the 78-card Tarot deck..There may have been allegorical and cultural significance attached to them, but beyond that the trumps originally had little mystical or magikal import..Curiously, the characters represented on denari wear garments decorated with blue ribbons wound around circular suns..The Knight of this suit is the only one not wearing a ducal crown..

You make it sound like a darth sentence..

In the hands of Freemasons, Protestant clerics, and the nobility of the day the Tarot became nothing less than "bible of bibles", an esoteric repository of all the significant truths of creation..The trend was initiated by prominent Freemason and Protestant cleric Antoine Court de G├ębelin who suggested that the Tarot had an ancient Egyptian origin, and mystic divine and kabbalastic significance..By the early 18th century Masonic writers and Protestant clerics had established the tarot trumps as authoritative sources of ancient hermetic wisdom and Christian gnosis, and as revelatory tools of divine cartomantic inspiration, but they did not stop there..The Visconti-Sforza tarot is used collectively to refer to incomplete sets of approximately 15 decks from the middle of the 15th-century, now located in various museums, libraries, and private collections around the world..The suit of spades shows figures dressed in full armour, carrying a large sword... not a queen sit under the same stars as any other woman?..They are only aware of the individual job they do every day..They have no idea how their contribution connects with that of other employees in other areas of the company..They are compartmentalized from that knowledge and told only what they need to know to do their work, are you not also a bishop?..It is like those Russian dolls with one doll inside another with the biggest one encompassing all of them...
