Subject: EXERCISE AND DIET SO THAT ONE GETS TO BE IMPORTANT AND SELECT

WHY WERE THE GREEKS NUMBER ONE?
BECAUSE THEY WERE THE FIRST TO STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF BEAUTY AND PHYSICAL 
ATTRACTIVENESS. ALSO THE BEAUTY OF A RACE OR A FAMILY, ITS GRACE AND ITS 
GOODNESS IN THE GESTURES ARE THINGS THAT ARE ACQUIRED WITH WORK: THEY ARE 
JUST LIKE THE GENIUS, THE FINAL RESULT OF THE ACCUMULATED WORK OF 
GENERATIONS. IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE MADE GREAT SACRIFICES TO THE GOOD 
TASTE, IS NECESSARY TO HAVE MADE AND HAVE LET MAKE MANY THINGS BY LOVE TO. 
THE CENTURY XVII OF FRANCE IS WORTHY OF ADMIRATION IN BOTH ASPECTS,  IT IS 
NECESSARY TO HAVE HAD IN THE GOOD TASTE A SELECTION PRINCIPLE TO CHOOSE THE 
COMPANIES, THE PLACE, THE DRESS, THE SEXUAL SATISFACTION, IT IS NECESSARY TO 
HAVE PREFERRED THE BEAUTY TO THE ADVANTAGE, TO THE PLACE, TO THE OPINION, TO 
THE LAZINESS.  THE SUPREME RULE: IT IS NECESSARY " NOT TO LET YOURSELF GO”  
NOT EVEN IN FRONT OF YOURSELF. THE GOOD THINGS ARE EXCESSIVELY EXPENSIVE: IT 
ALWAYS GOVERNS THE LAW OF THAT HAS THEM IS DIFFERENT FROM WHO ACQUIRES THEM. 
ALL THE GOOD ONE IS INHERITANCE: WHAT IT IS NOT INHERITED IS IMPERFECT, IS A 
BEGINNING... IN ATHENS, IN TIME OF CICERONE, THAT EXPRESS THEIR SURPRISE FOR 
THAT REASON, THE MEN AND THE BOYS WERE VERY SUPERIOR IN BEAUTY TO THE WOMEN: 
BUT WHAT A WORK AND EFFORT TO THE SERVICE OF THE BEAUTY HAD BEEN DEMANDED 
THERE, FROM CENTURIES TO THE MALE  SEX! THEN WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE MISTAKEN 
ON THE METHODICAL ONE IN THIS POINT: A SIMPLE DISCIPLINE OF THE FEELINGS AND 
THOUGHTS IS ALMOST EQUAL TO ZERO (OF THIS THE GREAT MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE 
GERMAN THINKING WHICH IS TOTALLY FALSE): IT IS NECESSARY TO PERSUADE THE 
BODY FIRST.  A RIGOROUS OBSERVANCE OF IMPORTANT AND SELECT GESTURES, TO 
COMMIT YOURSELF TO LIVE WITH MEN WHO " DO NOT LET THEMSELVES GO " IS ENOUGH 
SOLELY INDEED SO THAT ONE GETS TO BE IMPORTANT AND SELECT: IN TWO, THREE 
GENERATIONS THIS IS ALREADY ALL COMPLETED.

IT IS VERY DECISIVE FOR THE LUCK OF THE NATIONS AND THE WORLD THAT IT MUST 
START THE CULTURE IN THE RIGHT PLACE, NOT BY THE "SOUL"(THAT WAS  THE 
UNFORTUNATE SUPERSTITION OF THE PRIESTS AND SEMI-PRIESTS): THE RIGHT PLACE 
IS THE BODY, THE GESTURES, THE DIET AND THE PHYSIOLOGY, THE REST IS 
CONSEQUENCE OF IT, THATS WHY THE GREEKS CONTINUE BEING THE FIRST CULTURAL 
EVENT OF HISTORY. THEY KNEW WHAT WAS NECESSARY, AND THEYDID IT!
