I'm officially going to put some systematic efforts. I've been reading Beowulf (~700 ad?) and studying old English and figuring out the Anglo-Saxons, the Britons (dunno), the Celts (hmmmm), the Gauls (oh boy) and the Goths (300-500 A.D. activities, and after) and the Vikings. Read some of the Norse sagas (mostly 1000AD, but functionally, ~800-1000ad) today. Obviously I need to keep working on my Swedish and German, with a little bit of Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Sanskrit and even some Slavic languages handy. Maybe a little bit of French. There's so much beckoning questions. Norige (mentioned in the Viking sagas), Deniga (mentioned in Beowulf), Sverige. I could even turn this into financial and lifestyle freedom. Getting grants from many people. That way, I don't have to take on the tremendous pioneering with business enterprises, which I'm still working on. It was a tough night overnight, realizing that the world gives nothing to you and every kind of business endeavour must be painstakingly pioneered. If you want something done right you gotta do it yourself, nobody doing the important stuff. In scholarship, the situation is the same, of course, and mountains of bureaucrats who are ignorant and offer useless criticism, which still can work for some editing, but largely is stupifaction. I could actually bring in some pretty good money to help cover my living costs while I do such projects. But mostly I want to work on it a bit now as it can refresh my spirit. Surely, it will be long run, as one can see my historical and linguistic knowledge which unveiled miraculous insight was many years in the making.
