Authors Commentary on Out of Court Settlementl
Sargon of Akkad didn't like his paradise, which had few comforts. He moved in with Augustus.
Hatshepsut, pure Egyptian, found the Fields
of the Blessed incredibly boring: working the fields of the gods day in and day
out, and dealing with relatives---a lot of relatives. So she, who sponsored the
great Egyptian voyages of discovery, finds she can use any technology she can
believe in, and oh, she believes.
She not only keeps up with the Romans, she has a lot of technology that postdates the 21st century, and her fashion sense is color-changing catsuits.
Cleopatra---well, she's as much Greek as Egyptian, but she believes in Paris fashion...and Julius Caesar understands everything right down through the 20th century. They get along as well as ever.
The house even has two more 'modern' Italians, Dante, and Machiavelli, from the Renaissance, both of whom found living in their past far safer than the Italy of their day.
