Thanks, that was interesting. Who's General God? -- maybe it's Grand Duke Jupiter, whose office is indeed occupied by a military commander this year? He lords over loud noise, among other things.


Then again, as a Wen-tzu story goes, a court composer asked by the emperor to evaluate a piece of modern music of some new style that was gaining popularity burst into tears and said,

"your majesty, weep with me -- this is the sound of the destruction of the empire."
