Vanished Persian Army Finally Found?

From Rossella Lorenzi at MSNBC:

“The remains of a mighty Persian army said to have drowned in the sands of the western Egyptian desert 2,500 years ago might have been finally located, solving one of archaeology’s biggest outstanding mysteries, according to Italian researchers.”

According to legend, the army was buried in a sandstorm.

    That is quite true; constantly bombarded by information technology, we forget that we don’t know things. I would point out that before we can begin to understand everything about the world, we must first begin learning the intricacies of ourselves. Furthermore, once we learn or find that self we mustn’t be afraid to let it animate us.
